Review: The Sins of Viscount Sutherland by Samantha James

3 Stars
The Sins of Viscount Sutherland
Author: Samantha James
Pages: 384
Claire Ashcroft hates Viscount Grayson Sutherland because of his hand in the death of her brother and she has vowed to get revenge. Her plan--to make him fall in love with her and then break his heart.

I have to say this is one of the only Samantha James books where I felt for the Hero more than the Heroine.

Though I did like Claire and felt for her about the death of her brother, I could even see why she would want to avenge him-- I couldn't help but think that most of her problems she brought on herself. I did not like her plan to seduce Gray then cast him aside--it just really didn't seem like something that sounds reasonable for a 'Lady' to think.

And Grey, ah, I felt so much sympathy for him that it hurt at times. Even from the beginning we know that he isn't just this 'rouge'. But the author really holds back information pertaining to him for most of the book. 

The fighting also bothered me. One minute they got along okay the next they couldn't stand each other. So it makes the ending of the book, when everything is all good again seem . . . unfinished. As if the author should have written more to show that they would continue to get along.

Altogether I liked the book--how could I not? James is an amazing author and writes historical fiction like no other, but again I just could not seem to love Claire and the way the were constantly at odds over something or other.

I would recommend this to Samantha James fans.
