Release date: 5 June 2018
Main characters: Natalie Salvatici, Luc Salvatici.
Behind the doors of the House of Sin, no one is ever safe…
I love him. It’s the only truth that matters now.
I’ve cast my old life aside and given myself fully to his wants and desires, to the fire he alone ignites inside me. And together, we’ve found strength and salvation in each other.
But there are evil forces, people who see me as a threat that must be undone. I trust that our love can withstand any test, but I can’t ignore the growing shadows lurking beyond our door.
Because I understand now that those shadows are not waiting to destroy me as I once feared. They’ve come for him. To steal him away from me for good. And to finally and completely engulf him in a sinister world he’s eluded for so long.
In the inescapable darkness of the House of Sin…
Why you should read it: This book is certainly not boring! There are so many twists and turns, misunderstandings between Luc and Natalie – while they still struggle to communicate – not the mention the plotting and scheming done by Luc’s family. It left me breathless – the newlyweds are really put through the ringer in this book. There was barely any respite. I enjoyed the developing characters of Natalie and Luc, they became more and more solid in my mind. I was thoroughly invested in their story. Crazy as it was! The chemistry levels between the pair remained off the charts and their passion leapt off the page – without getting too over the top. The Italian wasn’t bad – it merged quite well into the English and wasn’t too distracting. For the most part it was correct, which was a relief, as it has been done very badly in other books I’ve read.
“You are my life, Natalie James. The very reason my heart beats. And I will love you across the ages. Nothing will ever change the way I feel. Nothing.”
What you might not like: As I said, there’s A LOT going on for Natalie and Luc – it never ends. There was one point when I asked myself whether I could take another kidnapping! Natalie always seemed to be in the wrong place at the wrong time – and with disastrous consequences! This many twists and turns made it quite a long book, which is not a problem, but I did experience drama fatigue nearing the last third of the book. Perhaps certain plot-lines were tied up a little too neatly (if I’m seriously nitpicking) for my liking? Though, that’s better than a gaping hole in a plot.
Rating: 3.5/5 for a satisfying end (if somewhat hard to come by) to the story and a seriously sexy read. It was thrilling and consistently good across the series.
