Flying from sin. . .

Andrew Rossiter has used his gorgeous body and angelic face for all they're worth--shocking the proper, seducing the willing, and pleasuring the wealthy. But with a tiny son depending on him for rescue, suddenly discretion is far more important than desire. He'll have to bury his past and quench his desires--fast. And he'll have to find somewhere his deliciously filthy reputation hasn't yet reached. . .

..into seduction

Miss Gemma Peartree seems like a plain, virginal governess. True, she has a sharp wit and a sharper tongue, but handsome Mr. Ross wouldn't notice Gemma herself. Or so she hopes. No matter how many sparks fly between them, she has too much to hide to catch his eye. But with the storms of a Scottish winter driving them together, it will be hard enough to keep her secrets. Keeping her hands to herself might prove entirely impossible. . .

MASTER OF SIN by Maggie Robinson is a very exciting historical romance set in 1820 Italy and Scotland. It is ”The Courtesan Court” Series book #4,but can be read as a stand alone. See,”Mistress By Mistake”,”Mistress By Midnight”,and “Mistress By Marriage”. Follow Gemma Peartree,a virginal governess ,or so it seems,but she has a secret and Andrew Rossiter,a man who enjoys his pleasures,has a scandal or two and would do anything for his young son as they find love,passion,desire,danger and hopefully a bit of peace along the way and did I mention alot of passion and sparks. A fast paced story from the first page to the last. I read “Master of Sin” in one setting it was that captivating. Ms. Robinson is a wonderful storyteller who writes captivating stories with a bit of scandalous delight.A must read.I Received for an honest review from the publisher. Details can be found at Brava,published by Kensington Publishing Corp,the author’s website, and My Book Addiction and More. RATING: 5 HEAT RATING: Mild: Mild detailed scenes of intimacy,mild violence or profanity REVIEWED BY: AprilR, My Book Addiction and More

Not my cup of tea. Don't get me wrong I love a good governess tale and can't resist a bad boy rogue but I guess I like my hero and heroine to have a little less "experience" going into things. With that exception it was well written and had some great scenes.

I have read and enjoyed all the books in Maggie Robinson's Courtesan Court series and this book is a bit more darker and deep than the previous books. I enjoyed how Andrew is not a titled gentleman trying to reform his rakish ways but rather a deeply scarred man that was abused during his childhood and built up such a wall around himself going into adulthood, he about misses the one thing that will finally give him some peace. The fact that the past was laid all out quickly was also a relief...there is no big misunderstanding and Gemma accepts Andrew for all his past misdeeds. I also enjoyed how Marco was included in the story but the child never overshadowed the romance and felt real. He naturally has a big distrust for Andrew and we get to slowly see father and son come together. Truthfully, besides some crude language, I actually felt this book was a bit tamer than some of the previous books. With Andrews fresh start, he also wanted to leave behind all sexual encounters and I was very pleased to see he did not drop that front quickly. Gemma was a delightful heroine, small, bossy and knew how to get what she wanted when she wanted it. She was the perfect balm to help Andrew accept himself and show that everyone deserves happiness, no matter how shaky or seedy the past may be. Overall, a wonderfully satisfying, sensual romance.
