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...
As soon as I began Moonlight Sins I immediately got caught up in the intricacies of the de Vincent family. I could not put it down. It starts off with a suspicious murder-suicide and although that in itself was interesting on its own, I was intrigued with so many of the other elements until the very end.
One of those elements was getting to know the siblings – Lucian, Gabe, Devlin, and Maddie and witnessing how they interact with each other. At first, I thought that the only thing that they shared the was the same blood but JLA proved repeatedly that there is more to them than that.
Then there is Julia. She was such an amazing heroine. I loved her heart, her compassion and her willingness to think outside the box and although her professionalism came into question multiple times it made for such a great story. It gave it a good amount of angst and honestly? Who could possibly resist someone like Lucian de Vincent?
I love family sagas and overall, I thought Moonlight Sins was a fantastic one. I enjoyed the perfect balance between the romance, suspense, and mystery. The characters and the relationship among them is one of a kind and this is the reason why I will be coming back for more!
