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…
Well, we’ve got a sexy cover, some family secrets, and a misguided night of passion, I couldn’t keep my hands off this book. This book was a little creepy and a lot sexy, I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I did.
This wasn’t a cookie cutter romance novel. There was plenty of tension, suspense and mystery on top of the growing relationship and steamy scenes. I was invested in the characters and their story and had no idea what to expect.
This book features Julia, a nurse, who is trying to live her life to the fullest after years of playing it safe. She accepted a job as an in-home caregiver far away from her friends and family, she even tried to have a one night stand. Good for her! It never hurts to live a little and try something new. Turns out the guy from her one night stand is the brother of the young lady she was hired to care for. Awkward!
Understandably, Julia isn’t too pleased when she finds out Lucian is the man from the night before. He had only the best of intensions when he met Julia. But, he has some explaining to do and quickly. Especially if he wants her to stay which he does because he can’t seem to get her out of his mind.
I loved the chemistry between these two. Julia believes Lucian is nothing more than a shameless flirt looking for no strings attached sex. Lucian, wants more from Julia than he has from any woman before. But he has secrets, his family has secrets, and he’s hesitant to bring Julia into it. I enjoyed their banter and watching as they fell in love.
The only thing I didn’t enjoy about this book was the beginning. I loved Lucian and Julia; I didn’t want to think about Lucian with someone else even if nothing happened.
The plot was quick moving and enjoyable. I was worried the book would turn into a paranormal romance but that didn’t happen. There was a great deal of suspense and mystery surrounding the sister and the fathers apparent suicide.
The ending was both awesome and surprising. All the loose ends were tied up which is always a nice bonus. Overall I recommend Moonlight Sins for anyone who enjoys a sexy love story with some mystery and suspense thrown in.
