Vince Donovan has lost a lot in his life. He has lived life under a code of greed, lies and crime – never allowing anyone to get too close. After losing the empire he fought to build at the hands of a psychotic man in pursuit of revenge, Vince vows to rebuild what he once had. Along with his once protege and now partner, Jayne King, he sets out to create an empire that is based on beautiful women, sex and sin.
Kelsey Franklin is young, beautiful, sexy and should be forbidden. Kelsey is also the one woman that Vince has vowed never to have and yet is the one woman he wants and needs.
When love happens in the unlikeliest of circumstances Vince must ask himself – Is love fit for the damned and the sinner?
Why this book kicks ass:
I’m going through a bit of dry patch with books at the moment. I always have a book on the go and read every night before I go to sleep. So, I thought I’d feature a book that I read a couple of months ago and loved. Jami Denise writes steamy, gritty contemporary romance, packed full of characters so real they make you ache for them. I’m a big Jami fan, but his new one, Damned Sinner, is Jami at her best.
Vince, the hero, first shows up in Jami’s “See Jayne Play”, you meet him again in the second book in the series, “Queen of Hearts.” I was champing at the bit to read his story, and it didn’t disappoint. Jami doesn’t do pretty with her characters, make excuses for them or try to rescue them. It makes her stories compelling, raw reading that drags you under with the characters and grips you until the end. And then she rescues the lot of you in an ending that made me weep.
