Teaching scandalous young men a lesson? This is not your typical book club…

To Rebecca Sherringham, all men are open books—read quickly and forgotten. Perhaps she’s just too practical for love. The last thing she needs is another bore around—especially one that’s supposed to be dead.

Captain Lucius “Luke” Wainwright turns up a decade after disappearing without a trace. He’s on a mission to claim his birthright, and he’s not going away again until he gets it. But Becky and the ladies of the village Book Club Belles Society won’t let this rogue get away with his sins. He’ll soon find that certain young ladies are accustomed to dealing with villains.

This book is definitely not one to be judged by the cover.

Sounds odd to read that, doesn’t it? Sinfully Ever After is one of those rare books that is nothing like I expected and so much better. Yes, Rebecca, the heroine, comes off as a little much. She’s very modern for her times, but I liked that. She was freer than the other characters. I liked her spunk.

I don’t know a whole lot about historicals. I’m not looking for nitpicky details. I want to get lost in the story. That said, I get a little irritated with the conventions that because someone kissed in public, the couple must be engaged, but I understand. It was the convention of the time. The way Ms Fresina handled the situation was great. I felt the passion between Luke and Rebecca instantly and wanted to see them get their happy ending.

If you want a story that will grip you from page one and won’t let go until far after the end, then this might be the book for you. I enjoyed it a lot.
