From the Publisher

In Victorian England vice of every kind can be purchased, and Matthew, the Earl of Wallingford, makes certain he avails himself of every possible pleasure. Bored and jaded, he is as well-known for his coldness as for his licentious affairs with beautiful women.

While these numerous dalliances fulfill Matthew’s every physical need, they secretly leave him numb and emotionally void. Until one night when he finds himself beaten, eyes bandaged and in the care of a nurse with the voice of an angel—and a gentle touch that soothes the darkness in him and makes him yearn for more.

Yet Jane Rankin is a lowly nurse, considered shy and plain by most. There is no place for her amongst the lords and ladies of the aristocracy—despite Matthew’s growing craving for the fire that burns behind her earnest facade. And then there is Matthew’s secret. A secret so humiliating and scandalous it could destroy everyone he loves. A sin, he fears, not even the love of a good woman can take away…SOURCE: THIS BOOK WAS RECEIVED FOR THE PURPOSE OF REVIEW BY NET GALLEY!

MY THOUGHTS:

 

SINFUL by Charlotte Featherstone is a wonderful Victorian romance set in London. It is well written with depth and details. It has romance, sensuality, forgiveness, sexual abuse,healing, betrayal, and most of all true love. The hero, Matthew, is enchanting, a tortured soul due to his past as a child and young boy. His rough, cold, loveless, a libertine, only after his own sexual pleasure, no intimacy until one fateful night he is beaten badly and taken to a local hospital. There he encounters a nurse, who brings him back to the living in more ways then one. The heroine, Jane, is a charming, lonely wretch of a women, who can not resist him and together they encounter love, passion, lost and true love. This is a lovely story of true love, romance, and healing. I would highly recommend this book especially if you enjoy healing, finding ones self and true love. This is a must read and a keeper. This book was received for review  and details can be found at Net Galley and Harlequin. Also, the author has the epilogue on her website to get a glimpse of Matthew and Jane’s ever after at www.charlottefeatherstone.net.
