Tangled In Sin by Lavinia Kent

by MK French

April 2017; Loveswept; ebook (262 pages)
regency romance
Cynthia Westhope went looking for her childhood friend Jasmine, who is rumored to be the new madam of a brothel. It's true, and when leaving from one of her visits, she's kidnapped by Jasmine's brother, who had hoped to change Jasmine's mind about remaining a madam. He doesn't recognize her until it's far too late, and she's compromised. The problem is, Cynthia refuses to let him marry her out of duty.

This is part of the Bound and Determined series of novels, so there are nods to characters from prior novels. It's a fun addition if you've read them, but not necessary to understand this one.

It's a fun and almost silly conflict between Cynthia (nicknamed Sin as a child, and the source of the title) and Jasmine's brother James. They get to know each other in the cottage they're trapped in by the rain, then in the guise of Cynthia visiting his aunt. The affection they have for each other is clearly there, and James is a bit high-handed in how he takes care of others. Of course, that's tempered by the end, and Cynthia goes from innocent to a more active participant in her relationship.

I like Cynthia, and enjoyed the snippets of her relationship with Jasmine. James starts off as a little less likeable than the usual romantic hero, but his changes help fix that. A cute story, but I liked the others in the series better.
