It looks like it's going to be a truly amazing and tantalizing bite of magical bliss. One of the things that I find totally fascinating about this book, is that it's a multi-cultural adult urban fantasy of sorts. I don't often get the chance to read those, so when I find one that looks like it's going to be intense interesting, I jump at the chance to share it with everyone. This one looks like it's going to be no excerption, either. It seems like it has all the makings of being a dark mysteriously intriguing drama filled world of mystical and magical elements intense drama thrown at you from every angle available. Who wouldn't want to sink their hooks into this novel right away and be drawn into such an epic world of intrigue and mystical forces of mayhem?!
Plus dark handsome swoon-worthy man of mystery?! Ooh, la la!!! I say bring THAT on...hahaha. Apparently this is not a book that any fan of adult urban fantasy romance would want to miss out on. Now doesn't that sound like something YOU'D want to read?!
I know I do, already. And I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of it!!!

At the beginning of Sweet as Sin, Drake is propositioned with the marriage to Sienna Caldwell in order to restore his ruined family name. It’s for one year he figured, so what’s the worst that could happen? Well apparently everything. At first Drake’s intentions seem beyond self-serving. All he has to do is get married, divorced, and then he will be able to reap in the buckets of money. What does he care about an island full of people he doesn’t even know? After all he did lead a troop of lethal killers through war and survived nearly unscathed, but why would Drake agree to this deal if it is merely to support his playboy ways?
In the 1930’s, reputation equaled prestige, which equaled money, and Drake needed lots of money. Upon closer inspection, Drake Devilin is not at all what he appears. His motives, that seem abundantly clear in beginning, blur rather suddenly. To most men, it would be a no-brainer, but most man-sluts, pardon me I meant confirmed bachelors, couldn’t imagine entertaining just one woman.
Drake feels drawn to the brown beauty Sienna Caldwell, but he doesn’t even know her, and soon after the nuptials, he makes every effort to avoid her. But that pesky personality flaw starts to rear its ugly little head. Drake’s loyalty to everyone dear to him extends to a woman he barely knows. So when the devil comes a calling, Drake weighs his options. He above anyone understands sacrifice, dying for a cause is not a farfetched idea, hell he nearly died for his country. The only part Drake did not bargain for was falling in love, but if he read the fine print like he was supposed to, he would have seen where it clearly stipulated love forfeits it all.
