I received a request from Ms. Hunt to read the first book in her new paranormal romance series Seven Princes of Sin and am delighted to say I look forward to learning about the rest of the sexy sin brothers.
Donna’s life is a trainwreck. Her father abandons her at a young age, her mother is a junky, and her angry abusive boyfriend is the leader of the Saints gang. When opportunity gives her a chance to get out from under her boyfriend’s control and to save her mother from the sketchy institution he has placed her in, she agrees to infiltrate and kill one of the new club owners who is mooching off their clients. But who is seducing who?
Adam Lust is the owner of the Lust Club, one of seven clubs he and his brothers (princes from Hell) are building in the city. The brothers’ mission is to swoop into cities full of drugs and violence and generate a cash flow by collecting souls from the sinful. Once the economy gets better, the brothers are off to their next sinful place leaving the condemned souls to be saved by The Choir, a heavenly group that has their own mission to save souls. When a beautiful and broken mortal walks into Adam’s club to sell her soul, he makes her his personal assistant and housemaid though he has no need for one. His inner beast needs to protect her; a woman he knows he has met before.
Donna has been beaten and degraded by her boyfriend, Jeremy. So much so, she has lost her confidence and self-respect. She is not thrilled with her mission to seduce and kill Adam, but her mother’s life is at stake and she can’t lose the only family she has. Until Adam shows Donna his compassion, kindness, and need to protect her. Adam gives her the control back she needs to become strong again. Adam’s demon beast inside him is telling him to fiercely protect her from the others, but who are the others and why does he feel so possessive of this one mortal? Sorry, can’t tell you that, but it’s an interesting plot twist for not only Adam but his brothers as well. Adam and Donna do have a happy ending, but there is a cliffhanger at the end that opens a whole can of worms for Donna.
The reader is introduced to all the Princes of Sin. Leo Gluttony is a very thin man with a voracious appetite for all-you-can-eat buffets. Stan Wrath is the large broody protective brother with a resting bitch face. Aedin Envy is the young hip peacekeeping brother. Linnaeus Sloth is the sleepy brother with the bass voice that lulls you to sleep. Corvus Greed is the money guy who is constantly scrolling through his phone for good financial opportunities. And, of course, Lucifer Pride the frightening oldest brother who vows to discover all of Donna’s secrets. I love how close they are as siblings and how they accept Donna into their immortal fold.
The story has it all, action, love, sex, vengeance, and twists and turns that will keep you captivated throughout.
Thank you to Ms. Hunt for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
