Seven Nights in a Rogue's Bed: Jonas Merrick and Sidonie Forsythe
(Sons of Sin #1)
Will a week of seduction...
Desperate to save her sister's life, Sidonie Forsythe has agreed to submit herself to a terrible fate: Beyond the foreboding walls of Castle Craven, a notorious, hideously scarred scoundrel will take her virtue over the course of seven sinful nights. Yet instead of a monster, she encounters a man like no other. And during this week, she comes to care for Jonas Merrick in ways that defy all logic—even as a dark secret she carries threatens them both.
...Spark a lifetime of passionate surrender?
Ruthless loner Jonas knows exactly who he is. Should he forget, even for a moment, the curse he bears, a mere glance in the mirror serves as an agonizing reminder. So when the lovely Sidonie turns up on his doorstep, her seduction is an even more delicious prospect than he originally planned. But the hardened outcast is soon moved by her innocent beauty, sharp wit, and surprising courage. Now as dangerous enemies gather at the gate to destroy them, can their new, fragile love survive?
Ok, I guess I never reviewed this book. Since I just did a re-read I guess I'll do it now, 4 years late but never late than never right?
So I remember really loving this book the first time I read it, and while I still enjoyed it, my love for it has diminished somewhat. I think mostly from one scene in particular that just had me scratching my head and thinking what an idiot... That scene aside, I really liked Jonas and Sidonie. Sidonie stood up to Jonas at every turn and he is a strong with a domineering personality. She was fiesty and loyal, she tried to do what she thought best for everyone but usually someone always gets hurt in these scenerios.
Jonas for the first chapter or so is supposed to be our villain. He attempted to lure is enemies wife to his home for a weeks seduction. What he got was her sister and he quickly learns that is so much better. He makes a deal with Sidonie.. a week...he has a week to seduce her and she has a week to resist her charms. During the course of the week we find out that Jonas is so much more than what he shows to the world. He's vulnerable and as scarred on the inside as he is on the outside. Only Sidonie seems to break down the walls he's erected.
By the end of the book we leave off with a warm fuzzy feeling and I quite enjoyed the tumultuous ride to get there. If you like beauty and the beast like stories I think you'll really enjoy this one. :)
