With every first novel of a new series, I always am optimistic for an out of the ballpark experience, especially when the author is a bestselling fan favorite. Even more so when said series reintroduces compelling characters from a previous one. In The Art of Sinning, American Jeremy Keane, artist extraordinaire, gets his chance at love with his muse, Lady Yvette Barlow.

While enjoyable, it fell way short of my expectations. Jeremy and Yvette was a fine couple, but their romance rather skimmed the surface of what could have been a great love affair. Their insecurities and misconceptions about themselves is what grabbed me most; Yvette believed she was too plain, too big (of course, being a good hero Jeremy thinks she's beautiful), and Jeremy was convinced he made unsuitable husband material. Of course, for him this stemmed from his big secret: a previous marriage that ended badly and resulted in a family estrangement.

The big surprise, however, was the true meaning behind the painting (one that Yvette secretly posed for) which was Jeremy's subconscious on canvas. While it caused a flurry of misunderstandings, in keeping with good hero fashion, he made a quick scramble to make things right with Yvette.

As I said, The Art of Sinning was enjoyable but hardly a keeper. It could have been great, but it just wasn't--at least for me. I wanted more depth, less fluff. Pass this one on to your friend and hope for a more satisfying round of adventure with the second installment in the Sinful Suitors series.
