Synopsis from Goodreads

Julia Hughes has always played it safe until she learned a very painful lesson. Now Julia’s starting over with a job in the Louisiana bayou—and a scorching encounter with a stranger, only to discover he’s Lucian de Vincent… her new employer. The de Vincent brothers share a massive fortune and a dark reputation. Julia cares for their troubled sister, but a menacing presence in the mansion—and the ever-present temptation of Lucian—prove dangerously distracting.

Lucian’s grandmother claimed de Vincent men fall in love once—and hard. Apparently, it’s Lucian’s turn. Julia’s compassionate care of his twin makes Lucian want to lay himself bare. But some secrets are better for Julia not to know.

The recent “suicide” of Lucian’s father is the latest in a string of deaths on the estate. Someone is eliminating the de Vincents. And the best way to get to Lucian may be through Julia…

REVIEW 

Moonlight Sins has a delicious gothic vibe to the narrative, combining a sizzling romance and deep, dark family secret topped with a centuries-old curse.

Lucian is the youngest of the de Vincent brothers, having struggled through the volatile relationship with his father and his twin sister going missing ten years previously, Lucian has a lot of emotional baggage he uses to push people away. Although, he has never kept someone away for their own good before Julia.

Julia has impulsively joined an employment agency, packing up her life to move hundreds of miles away from family and friends following the break-up of her relationship and some deep introspection. Julia is one of the most caring and compassionate people you could ever wish to encounter, she is deeply empathetic and selfless. Her attraction to the dark, brooding Lucian takes her completely by surprise when she is hired to care for a family member.

There are a lot of elements to the plot and the revelations are skirted around adding to the tension within the story. There are also some unusual twists that will have you reeling when they are revealed!!!!

Moonlight Sins is compelling reading, sweeping you away on a tide of intrigue.

For me, personally, it had a feel of Jane Eyre to the story, which just happens to be my favorite book ever.

The seeds have been planted for the next story in the series featuring the enigmatic middle brother Gabriel, Moonlight Seduction releasing 26 June 2018.
