This was such a great book, such a good story, wonderfully written I loved that this wasn't just some quick little story like boy meets girl they have problems they get over it and live happily ever after Chelsea and Sinjin, the main characters go through so very much in this book, Chelsea hides away in Sinjin's carriage to offer up her virginity This book takes you from the Scottish country side, to London, to Italy, and the Northern coast of Africa.
This book is never boring but never too outlandish. The best Susan Johnson book I've read yet! View 2 comments.

'Sinful and dirty': Fears for women under new religious freedom laws
When Sinjin refuses she plots and succeeds to seduce him. Not willing to let her go, Sinjin makes her a wager and wins a week she has to spend with her. When Chelsea becomes pregnant, her furious father and brothers abduct Sinjin Chelsea Amity Fergusson, daughter of the impoverished Earl of Dumfries, trying to thwart off an unwanted marriage to the wealthy but loathsome Bishop Hatfield, makes herself unworthy by losing her virginity to London's most notorious rake, Sinjin St.
When Chelsea becomes pregnant, her furious father and brothers abduct Sinjin and violenty force the two into marriage, but then separate them and imprison him. However, I did not understand that. Was the motivation his daughter's honor of the Duke's money. Sinjin is rescued by his friend, Seneca, with the help of Chelsea. After his rescue Sinjin decided to hold Chelsea hostage so her family will leave him alone.
He wants to keep her hostage until the baby is born and he knows for sure it is his.

Loosing the fight of his attraction towards her, he decides to leaves for Tunis, where he is captured by an evil Bey. Chelsea heads over to Tunis to pay the ransom him and ends up, together with Sinjin, in a only-possible-in-books adventure. This was a slow read, where I skipped a lot of pages and I almost DNF; I really did not care for the adventure in Tunis and failed to see the added value. View 1 comment.
This book was not my thing I cannot see where's the romance..
That's kind of story is too dirty for me for historical romance. Well, if it meant to be an erotica romance, maybe its okay, but as erotica, the book was not as hot as erotica : Its just Even it maybe yours View all 5 comments. Not bad. There was that incident view spoiler [where both MCs were captured in separate occasions and forced to have sex in front of the Bey for his own pleasure hide spoiler ] in the last few chapters that I felt were unnecessary.
I think it was a plot device to make the hero realize that he loved his wife. There was a little bit of the I'm-in-love-with-my-husband-but-he-will-never-feel-the-same-way-about-me angst that I enjoy. Wish there could have been more of that. View all 3 comments. Writing style was adequately elegant. Unexpected turns in the plot. Hero and heroine were independent and not always predictable. While there was nothing wrong about it, there was nothing that was done well: it didn't grab me in any particular way.
Chelsea decides, in order to avoid a suitor, to lose her innocence to the neighbourhood libertine, Sinjin. Unfortunately for her, Sinjin has "morals. However, Chelsea decides to sneak into his home later that night, where he is holding an orgy for his pals. Sinful is an okay read about two people who love horses, with a very convincing libertine and a fiery country girl who could have been a bit more audacious for real sparks to fly.
Secret week-long dalliance, pregnancy scare and shotgun wedding, kidnapping in a faraway land and sexual voyeurism aside - what I admire most about Sinful is the historical research Susan Johnson devoted to the work, and I have to admit the footnotes were kind of the best part since I tuned out about halfway through the story.
I do appreciate that Sinjin is an honest-to-god libertine, even though he was dragging his heels and acting silly. The sketch of the mistress sitting cozily with the family as Chelsea, the wife, walks in during tea time is a very delightful tableau in terms of showing social values at the time Wives can basically do anything as long as they play the game and pop out an heir.
I think Chelsea could have made him work for it more, but he simply leaves a card game early to escort her home at a dance that one time. All right, he does go temporarily blind but I mean before that whole crazy turn in North Africa. Anyways, Sinful is ok but not entertaining due to the lack of humour and sense of drama.

Well it was fine and dandy, until I reached the last portion where they embarked on a not-so-believable adventure and were forced to have sex while others watched. Too good to be true. I favor a touch of reality.

I didn't even finish this book because is was so frustratingly un-fun to read with its angsty injustice and foolish conspiracies. It pushed every one of my feminine equality buttons. I understand that women had little power in those times but I just didn't enjoy experiencing that lack of power when I was expecting a sexy romance. Here are my main grievances: 1. There was very little hotness and there wasn't anything notably erotic about the sex.

In fact many potentially interesting scenes were skimmed over. The hero is a dick. Sometimes that can be sexy in a bad boy sort of way but this was not the case with Sinjin. At first he seemed charming but his character changed once he returned to London I found it totally incongruous to his original persona and then he devolved into selfish arrogant brat taking away the heroine's choices, freedom and power because he felt like it.

The heroine was delightful in so many ways but she had little backbone when it came to Sinjin regardless of his bad behavior which was infuriating. The heroine's family was stupid. A bunch of bumbling knuckleheads who didn't appreciate the heroine enough. There were too many improbabilities and inaccuracies to ignore.
For example a Duke could easily ignore a forced Catholic marriage since Catholicism wasn't recognized by the crown and forced coercion of a top ranking peer would never be upheld anyway. There are many other instances as well In need of a rake to save her from an unwanted marriage to a man she does not love, Chelsea Fergusson begs the notorious Sinjin St. John to help her.
