‘I have a favour to ask…
I want you to marry me.’

Is it possible for two such different people to be together and find the happiness they both deserve?

Series: Sinful Sinclairs #3
Release Date: October 29, 2019
Lady Samantha “Sam” Sinclair and Lord Edward “Edge” Edgerton grew up together in Egypt, Edge left for war with Sam’s brothers, but is now back. Sam always thought Edge was too stuffy and proper, but now that she is 18 she is seeing him in a new light – but almost as soon as she realizes he owns her heart, he breaks it with the news that he is returning to England to marry. In a moment of insanity, she kisses him and he kisses her back, but quickly comes to his senses and breaks the kiss and leaves her.
Eight years later, Sam is now the widowed Lady Carruthers and is once again in Egypt when she crosses paths with Edge again. Their time apart has been riddled with heartbreak – Sam suffered an unhappy marriage because she couldn’t love her husband and he punished her by using his natural daughter to taunt her and then broke her heart anew when the little girl passed away. Her only real joy is illustrating pictures for the Desert Boy books, a wildly popular series that has taken England by storm and the author is unknown – even to Sam. Edge didn’t fare much better, he is also widowed, his wife was unhappy and left him after giving birth to a son, Jacob. Edge loved Jacob with all his heart and was broken when he died. The only reason he has come out of seclusion is to find his missing brother Rafe, the Duke of Greybourne. This has lead him back to Egypt and Sam.
He plans to stay only a day, but is convinced to stay a little longer and let his uncle Poppy’s sources find some new leads. He gets his lead and is preparing to leave, when Sam proposes they marry. Stating they like each other and both want a family. To her surprise – he agrees and they marry within days. But he makes it clear, his main priority is finding Rafe.
Sam wonders if she has made a huge mistake, after an amazing wedding night, she feels Edge slipping away and he ignores her for almost the entire journey, he finally talks to her and she thinks they will be happy, but then he abandons her almost as soon as they reach London. When he returns, they again seem to make headway and then she learns the secret he has been keeping from her and it threatens to ruin everything.
I thought this was a good story, but it did drag a little, I wished the author gave more background about his brother and I had a hard time believe that both Sam and Edge were so completely oblivious to the other’s feelings, not to mention, I felt the title was completely wrong for this story. But all in all, it was a sweet story of second chances, healing and love. With wonderful characters, warm love scenes, a little heartache, a little mystery and a lovely epilogue. This is the third book in The Sinful Sinclairs, but you can easily read this title as a standalone.
