A Taste of Sin by Connie Mason is the first novel of the authors, Sin Trilogy.


In it we meet Lady Christy—Laird of the MacDonalds and St. John Thornton called Sinjun by his friends but better known as Lord Sin to the ton of London.

At a young age Sinjun and Christy are married by orders of the king—she Scottish and he English neither wanted the match and so when Christy comes of age, Sinjun does not bother to go back to the Highlands and consummate their marriage. Instead he cultivates his name Lord Sin, a rouge that is talked about all the way in the Highlands, even his wife’s clan.

Sinjun likes his life of pleasure and though he does not feel quite the same excitement for it as he used to he fully intends to enjoy himself—and never go to his wife. Which is why when the lovely Lady Flora Randall walks into a party he makes no pretense about what he wants and since she is married as well all the better for all Lord Sin ever gives is pleasure.

Lady Christy has come to London pretending to be Lady Flora so she can get her husband the rake, Lord Sin to consummate their marriage and return home with his baby, and heir. Lately there has been pressure for her to end her marriage and marry another Highlander who wants her power of the clans and she hopes and heir will calm them down.

She never thought it would be so easy to catch her husband’s attention and Sinjun though after having her in his bed finds that when she is gone he can not stop thinking about her.

I liked this book but I admit that it aggravated me as well. Mostly after Sinjun comes to the Highlands though when he hears his wife is pregnant and finds that Christy and Flora was one in the same.

This is about halfway through the book I think, and still it was not that aggravating, she lied to him yes, but he is there now, they are working a relationship together, going to have a child and then trouble comes. Sinjun is called away and misses the birth of his baby, but before he can come home he receives a devastating letter from his wife.

This was the big thing for me that stopped me from really enjoying this novel; Christy lies to Sinjun, again, but this time telling him his child died soon after birth and she signs annulment papers and says she want to marry another.

Not too long after this she comes to London with her child to escape ‘the bad guy’ and eventually meets up with Sinjun, he is of course very unhappy when he finds out about this lie and she can not believe he would not hear her explanation as to why she lied to him.

My Lord woman! My opinion of Christy went down a lot after this, sure she was doing it to protect her husband, but that was just.... and then to expect him to listen to her reasons? In my opinion I do not think he should have forgiven her at all Sinjun was devastated by the loss of both his wife and child, he was reforming, wanted her and his baby—a family—learning to love her, hell he already did even though he did not realize it and she him as well.

Christy became annoying to me after this and though I still liked the book in an overall sense I could not like her as a character anymore. The sex scenes between the two though were very many and erotic and I did enjoy them immensely.

I will read the next book in the series as again, I did like the book and I have already read the third book a long while ago (which is why I thought I would love this one, alas it was not to be so) and I am curious to see if the next book will be about Sinjun’s older brother or younger sister.
