Tempting a Sinner, Kate Pearce


Tempting a Sinner, Kate Pearce
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews

I’d not read the first book, but it seems a series where the characters are connected but each book is complete, I like those so requested this novel. The Sinners Club, aptly named it seems, as anything goes there…whatever type of sexual attraction or fantasies one has Sinners will let it play out – within reason of course, so long as no-one gets harmed.
We meet Malinda ( Mally) and her half sister and her cousin to begin. They’re staying at a country estate when Mally shoots a visitor. He falls and suffers a memory loss. Turns out it’s Lord Benedict and Mally knows him well….though she doesn’t tell him or anyone else that, and she and her cousin have some carnal and erotic moments with him until his memory returns.
The story then turns to London and the Sinners Club, when Benedict and Mally return there. Both have secrets they want to explore, and the answers they get bring them into danger, but along the way there’s plenty of explicit sexual adventuring.
It’s a well written read, lots of sexual moments though I didn’t find them all particularly sensual. Sometimes sex becomes just that – sex without any real meaning, just the act and I need emotion attached to make it sensual. Just me again – not everyone feels that way. Mally was a fine lead, protective and a lady out to find answers, not wail and weep and wait for them to come to her. I liked that about her, I don’t enjoy those simpering, TSTL heroines. Ben, full of secrets, partly from his profession, partly from his inclinations and the time period. He seemed controlled and almost cold in actions to almost everyone, but Mally manages to rile him up every time. Of course they don’t do anything as easy as share their secrets with each other but play them out slowly revealing as little as necessary.
There’s sex and romance, love and lust here but it didn’t really work that well for me – the secrets and danger elements added to the drama, and were in keeping with the time period. Overall its a good book, a decent one off read for me, but not one I’d re read.
Stars: Three.
