**The Trouble with Sin (Devilish Vignette #2) is a comic romp that follows on the heels of Devil in the Making. It is also a prequel to Jewel of the East ( book #5 in the Devil Devere series)**

The Trouble with Sin … Is the devil within… Aspiring poet Simon “Sin” Singleton, has lived his life only for larks, laughter, and ladies of easy virtue, eluding defying, and flouting all manner of authority until his impetuous misdeeds finally catch up with him. Having lost his muse, his allowance, and even his friends by edict from a tyrannical father and puritanical mother, Simon is ready to drown himself in drink, until receiving an ingenious proposition that could change everything.

The wages of Sin is……twenty-five percent of the net!It seems a fantasy come true when Simon is offered an independent income by combining his two great passions– poetry and lewd women –by writing poetry about lewd women! Unfortunately, maintaining anonymity may be much harder than he thought…

 

Review: I am not overly fond of erotica…it’s just not really my cup of tea.

Unless your name is Victoria Vane and you sucked me into your books from the very first one! There is something so captivating about her books that I just keep going back for more and borderline beg her to PLEASE PUBLISH ANOTHER ONE RIGHT NOW.

I have been waiting for a long time to read more than a page or two about “Sin” – known to his parents and polite society as Simon Singleton. The Trouble with Sin vignette takes place when the boys find themselves on leave from school due to a rather scandalous trick they played. Sin’s parents aren’t exactly forgiving and forbid him from leaving the house and having anything to do with Devere or Ned. Of course he doesn’t listen and embarks on an adventure of his own without his friends to help him. Meaning – he has to grow up and stand on his own.

I love Ms. Vane’s writing style. Even with her vignettes she leaves you wanting more. She tantalizes and teases, leaving you impatient until the next book…or vignette.

I can’t wait to read the next in the Devil Devere series, Jewel of the East.
