The first novel in the Sinful Suitors series by New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries! At St. George’s Club, guardians conspire to keep their unattached sisters and wards out of the clutches of sinful suitors. Which works fine…except when the sinful suitors are members!
American artist Jeremy Keane refuses to return home and take over his father’s business. He’d much rather sample bevvies of beauties abroad, in search of a model for the provocative masterpiece he’s driven to paint. When he meets Lady Yvette Barlow at a London wedding, he realizes she’s perfect for his work—and determines to capture the young heiress’s defiant spirit and breathtaking sensuality on canvas.
No stranger to scandal, Yvette agrees to be Keane’s subject—in exchange for his help gaining entry to the city’s brothels he knows intimately, so she can track a missing woman and solve a family mystery. But when their practical partnership leads to lessons in the art of sinning, can they find a bold and lasting love?
Veteran historical romance author Jeffries (the Hellions of Halstead Hall series) launches her Sinful Suitors Regency series with two effortlessly crafted charismatic protagonists. Edwin Barlow, Lord Blakeborough, commissions brash American artist Jeremy Keane to paint a portrait of his sister, Lady Yvette, in exchange for introducing Keane's sister, Amanda, to amenable suitors. Yvette is trying to find the child that her irresponsible brother Samuel left behind in a brothel; Jeremy offers to help in exchange for Yvette modeling for another, more provocative painting. When the two meet in secret at night and Yvette poses for his painting, their meetings become erotic encounters, and Jeremy opens up a world of sensuality for her. Yvette is revealed as a strong, smart woman driven by her quests to rescue her brother's child and to find a man to love; Jeremy could be that man, but the scars of his past get in his way. Jeffries's talent is clear, and readers will delight in the multidimensional characters, fast-paced plot, and heaps of emotional passion and sensuality.

Good start to a spinoff series
I have loved every book that I've read by Sabrina Jeffries. With that being said I had a really hard time getting in to this book. I couldn't wait for Jeremy's book. We met him in the last series and I truly I enjoyed his character. I still like Jeremy and really liked Yvette. She is a very strong woman with a very tender heart that she hide from the world just as Jeremy hide his true character.
I guess my main problem with the book was I didn't like the way Ms. Jeffries wrote the dialog between the characters. It was very hard for me to get into the flow of the story because of it. But when I did I truly loved the book. The last 1/2 was so good and emotional it jus sucked me in. It had a great twist the I did not see coming and I loved every bit of it.
I am so looking forward to the next books and getting to know the future hero's and heroines.
