SINJIN, THE RAKEHELLS OF ROCHESTER
Kensington Publishing Corporation
Rating: 4 Cups
She is but a hair’s breadth away from becoming Lord Ronald Balliford’s wife, and Katelyn Davenport could not be more heartbroken. Her betrothed prides himself as a strict disciplinarian, believing women should be seen and not heard, and this is especially true when it comes to his fiancée.
Lady Rochester is determined to put a stop to her son’s lascivious behavior, and as first born, her demands fall squarely on Sinjin’s shoulders. Sinjin and his brothers are to be married by the end of summer, or be disinherited by their parents.
Katelyn desperately needs the time away from Ronald, and spending time with her sister at Claymoore Hall is the perfect excuse. However, by the end of the first afternoon, Ronald is the furthest thing from her mind and Sinjin has inundated every one of her senses. Sinjin is resigned to finding himself a wife amongst the bevy of giggling girls his mother is parading in front of him, but when his eyes land upon Katelyn, his world comes to an abrupt stop. When he learns of her betrothal, he feels a stab of jealously like never before, but wanting and needing her in his life is an ache so powerful, he is incapable of resisting.
Julia Templeton is truly an artist when it comes to sweet and sensual romance. I love that her characters all have a voice, and give you multiple perspectives throughout the story, but this tends to overshadow its main characters. Sinjin and Katelyn are such a beautiful couple, and their chemistry really lights up the pages. The potential storylines from this book are virtually endless, and I am anxious to see how Sinjin’s brothers meet their mother’s demands.
