Ths book not only is romantic, it is also a mystery-filled book that will keep you on the edge of your seat. A must-read!
I really liked this book because there was an obvious play on words, especially the title. Moriah Morgan has an agenda of her own, in spite of her mother's wish that she marry someone of considerable means and temper her reckless ways. An adventure is just what she gets when posing as a 'lady of the evening' to catch her sister, Sara Winslow's murderer. Valsin Masters is a brooding, dark, mysterious man with a special gift and a painful past that he refuses to open up to Moriah about--at first. Together they unravel the mystery behind the murders at Nassau, and discover a few mysteries of their own as well.
One thing I loved about Moriah Morgan is that, in spite of how naive she was in the beginning, she didn't let Sin dictate to her. Sin was always used to giving the orders and expecting to have them obeyed. Until Moriah Morgan came along, no one dared stand up to him except his overseer.
Valsin Masters had his own set of troubles. First, he thought he was responsible for his father's death. Munnando, the island voodoo priestess of 18, wanted to bare his child, but he refused to oblige, even after addicting the mulatto servant Callie on opium (tomcoo) and kidnapping Moriah. This and the realization that he could actually harm someone with his special gift if his emotions got out of hand would make anyone a basket case.
When I look for books to read, this is the kind that excites me becausse it has a little bit of everything in its pages. I encourage anyone who wants to read and experience an adventure to read this book.
