Andrew Rossiter has used his gorgeous body and angelic face for all they’re worth—shocking the proper, seducing the willing, and pleasuring the wealthy. But with a young son depending on him for rescue, suddenly discretion is far more important than desire. He’ll have to quench his desires—fast. And he’ll have to find somewhere his scandalous reputation hasn’t yet reached…
Miss Gemma Peartree seems like a plain, virginal governess—or so she hopes. No matter how many sparks fly between them, she has too much to hide to catch Andrew’s eye. But with a stormy Scottish winter driving them together, it will be hard to keep her secrets. Especially when Andrew feels he has found the woman who can restore his soul—one kiss at a time…
Well, I hate to say it, but this is a DNF for me. I have looked forward to this book since first seeing Andrew grace the page and when I found out he was getting his own book I literally squealed. Yes…literally. I wanted to love this book so very much and yet….I just didn’t. I only made it maybe 1/3 of the way in and the book was dragging so much that I just had to put it down. I did skim ahead a bit to see if things improved and I didn’t see anything that would make me want to go ahead.
I think I just have a rocky relationship with this series. I loved book 1. Book 2 was “meh”. Book 3 was really very enjoyable and now a dnf for book 4. There just wasn’t enough happening in this one to keep me interested. I wanted more by the time they actually had sex. Both Gemma and Andrew were harboring their own secrets but when they finally both came clean, nada…nothing…zilch. I didn’t feel connected to the story line at all. As much of a buildup as Andrew was portrayed I didn’t find the sex scene as appealing as I wanted either. In the end I wanted…..more.
I have faith in Maggie Robinson so this won’t stop me from reading more from her as well as her other books under the name Margaret Rowe. Have you read Tempting Eden (Excuse the formatting issues with that review)? One of my favorite books of all time. For reals.
I give a DNF rating to Master Of Sin by Maggie Robinson
