"New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout delivers the unforgettable story of a woman whose new life has just begun—but may end in murder... 

Julia Hughes has always played it safe until she learned a very painful lesson. Now Julia’s starting over with a job in the Louisiana bayou—and a scorching encounter with a stranger, only to discover he’s Lucian de Vincent... her new employer. The de Vincent brothers share a massive fortune and a dark reputation. Julia cares for their troubled sister, but a menacing presence in the mansion—and the ever-present temptation of Lucian—prove dangerously distracting.

Lucian’s grandmother claimed de Vincent men fall in love once—and hard. Apparently, it’s Lucian’s turn. Julia’s compassionate care of his twin makes Lucian want to lay himself bare. But some secrets are better for Julia not to know.

The recent “suicide” of Lucian’s father is the latest in a string of deaths on the estate. Someone is eliminating the de Vincents. And the best way to get to Lucian may be through Julia..."

My Thoughts:

JLA does it once again with Moonlight Sins! This is a very promising start to a new series and I am loving the feel of this series. It has such a gothic and slighty creepy feel at times but it is also so hot and sexy and of course has some snark thrown in. 

I loved Julia. I think what makes her shine most is her compassion. She clearly cares for her patients and the people around her and I think that is such an admirable character trait. She is thrown into a crazy and intense situation and she handles it well. And of course Lucian is basically walking and talking swoon. I absolutely adored him and his sense of humor. The banter between Lucian and Julia was so so great and their chemistry was off the charts.

And of course the other de Vincent brothers intrigued me to no end! Gabe seems like he can be quite the charmer and Dev... well there is a lot more I wanna know when it comes to Dev. This family is steeped in secrets and I cannot wait to peel back more of them in future books. 

Moonlight Sins is another great read from JLA. Her books never fail to captivate me with great characters and a great story and I know I am going to love this newest series from her.

  1. Glad to hear you really enjoyed this story. It's nice when you read the first in a series and you are immediately drawn to other characters, knowing their time in the spotlight will come soon. I've read a couple of this author's work and wasn't a huge fan. I haven't tried her stuff in years since then. Maybe one of these days I will give her newer stuff a chance. Everyone seems to love her work.

  2. I'm so happy you enjoyed this one, Teresa. It certainly sounds like a good intro to a new series and the characters seem very compelling. I think I need to spend an entire month reading JLA - finish series I've started and start all her others. So much goodness to read! :)
