Seduced by Sin is a fast paced novel with many twist and turns, intense characters, and consuming love scenes. Autry, Guity Pleasures
When Caleb Smith saved Francesca Hamilton from a nasty situation with her father, she was beyond grateful. Sure, it landed her in Caleb’s bed wearing his engagement ring, but neither of them took that seriously. It was a means to an end, and he was so sexy and exciting, she was enjoying the ride. It wasn’t Caleb’s fault her feelings were changing, leaving her wishing things between them were real rather than pretend.
Caleb took the FBI’s assignment because he wanted to end the tyranny of a man who’d hurt the people he loved. Odds of success were slim and the danger high, but he knew the risks. Francesca didn’t and was completely in the dark about her family’s “business.” And the more time he spends with her, the harder he falls for the gorgeous blonde. But to finally get retribution, he’ll have to destroy her world…

Caleb is your typical unlikely hero; reformed bad boy working undercover to bring down a larger than life crime boss. Caleb’s intensity he brings to the case adds to his tall, dark, dangerous side that’s luring Francesca to him. The undeniable pull between the pair is quick to ignite into nights of passion followed by days of confusion and purposeful misleading. Francesca seals their fate by accepting Caleb’s proposal. Caleb’s take-charge personality did a great job of balancing out Francesca’s wishy-washy approached to her father. She talks a great game but only in the last couple of chapters did I really see her take a stand, demanding answers from her father. It’s easy to portray her as a naïve, pampered princess with her personal driver and bodyguards, almost too easy. The secrecy and lies are too much for her to continuously believe foul play was not involved; to say her character was easily manipulated would be an understatement.
Ms. Raffertys’ novel pulled me into the pages fairly quick, I had to know what happened, how Caleb could save the day and still get the girl. Her supporting characters were perfect; they added to the story while providing enough intrigue to make me search for their stories. There were some small things that popped up making me question the research done in preparation for the novel.The questions were small and not relatable to the plot. Overall, it is a very fast paced novel, lots of action, lots of seduction, plot twists and an explosive ending.
