A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…

Sometimes it’s good to be bad…

When it comes to sex, good girl Skyler Thompson always plays it safe, choosing stable and sedate over wild and thrilling. She doesn’t do one-night-stands, but one look at sinfully sexy Gage Holt and she’s willing to reconsider. He makes her want to be bad for once in her life, and she’s prepared to take what she wants.

Danger follows former MMA fighter Gage Holt like a shadow. Despite his successes as part owner of Sin, an exclusive nightclub in Boston, Gage can’t risk getting involved with a woman, especially one as sweet as Skyler. Still, he can’t resist a taste—and it’s so damn good he has to see her again.

As addicted as he is to her, Gage knows there’s no future for him and Skyler—not with his past lurking in the dark corners of an MMA cage. But Skyler’s tougher than she looks, and she’s ready to fight for her man.

297887One Night of Sin, published in 2005

 

From Goodreads:

Renowned storyteller Gaelen Foley unfurls the seductive tale of the rakish Lord Alec Knight, who never looked for love, until it was right in front of him. . . .

Lord Alec Knight, the most daring and handsome rogue in all of London, is a smooth-talking aristocrat with an abundance of high-society lady admirers. With his irresistible wit, lucky hand at the gaming tables, and enticing charisma, he can have any woman he wants. But when the only girl he would have considered marrying ties the knot with someone else, Alec realizes he doesn’t want to be with just any lady, he wants to find the love of his life.

The boldly spirited, beautiful Miss Becky Ward takes his life by storm after he rescues her from peril. Alec soon learns that she is on the run from her cousin, the murderous Prince Mikhail Kurkov. Becky has uncovered a menacing secret about the prince, now nothing will stop him from hunting her down. In the midst of danger, Alec and Becky find themselves deeply drawn to each other. After the two spend an all-consuming night of sin, Becky’s knight in shining armor vows on his honor to protect her until the end. But before long, Alec is protecting her with more than honor and it seems the once untamed rake of London just may have found what he has been searching for all along . . . true love.

 

This is my second favorite in the Knight Miscellany series by Gaelen Foley. There are a lot of mixed reviews about this book but for my money, I really loved it. The characters are so intense, as well as all the most crucial scenes. I really felt a lot for the Alec and Becky. At one point, the book made me cry not because it was a tearjerker per se (although it was heartbreaking in that one scene) but because I really felt connected to the characters and Gaelen Foley did such a wonderful job making them feel like real people with real emotions who go through happy as well tough times. A plus for me for this book is how Gaelen characterized Alec. I really appreciate the internal conflict that the author was able to create for him. It was the first time I’ve read a story like his and I just really appreciated the treatment that Gaelen did in this book in that regard.

Super Six Sunday: Books that made me cry

SuperSixSundayII

Super Six Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Bewitched Bookworms. This Sunday’s theme: Books that made me cry.

Although I don’t go about reading books that make me cry, there comes that time when books just do that to you. Sometimes you expect it would, other times it just blindsides you a bit. But what I appreciate is the fact that the authors don’t have it in their minds as an ultimate goal to make the readers cry. It’s just that in-between sort of thing in pursuit of their telling their stories.

Now, without further ado, here’s my list:

297887#6 One Night of Sin by Gaelen Foley

This might seem a little out of place in this list because it’s a historical romance but nevertheless Alec’s back story just grabbed at my heart, squeezed it, and won’t let go until tears were running down my cheeks.

 

 

17411704#5 The Story Guy by Mary Ann Rivers

A person’s dedication to and sacrifice for another person is sometimes a sad but beautiful thing to watch (or read).

 

 

 

15931#4 The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks

It wasn’t just the Alzheimer and the power of love to break through this disease. It’s the long, long journey that Allie and Noah went through to be together.

 

 

 

6990472#3 If I Stay by Gayle Forman

The choice between staying and leaving has never been this gut-wrenching. She’s presented with these two choices and while you want her to choose one, it also makes sense that she would want to choose the other.

 

 

15507958#2 Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

Oh, Jojo Moyes, how you bleed my heart. Learning and wanting to live your life like you want to instead of just going through the motions is at the heart of this novel.

 

 

 

10929#1 For One More Day by Mitch Albom

“Have you ever lost someone you love and wanted one more conversation, one more chance to make up for the time when you thought they would be here forever? If so, then you know you can go your whole life collecting days, and none will outweigh the one you wish you had back.”

What can be more heartbreakingly pure and true than a mother’s love?
