A woman’s mysterious new job leads to unimaginable challenges, especially when she’s faced with an infamous yet very irresistible man.

Julie Hughes’ first day as a nurse for the de Vincent household does not fare well when she recognizes Lucian, the youngest of the three male siblings, as the guy she hooked up with the night before. It only gets worse when she learns that the family manor is haunted. A spine-chilling scenario sends Lucian to her rescue and provides an opportunity for them to make amends and start anew. The two find themselves falling in love, but whether or not their relationship will survive a flurry of disturbing events remains to be seen.

The first novel of the de Vincent series, Moonlight Sins dances between four genres—thriller, mystery, paranormal and romance—with aplomb. Jennifer L. Armentrout’s prose drips with romantic tension, and well-crafted erotic scenes spark within a narrative shrouded in mystery and replete with unsettling preternatural elements.

Armentrout’s dialogue is engaging throughout—fun and flirty between her main pair, and guarded and sarcastic between the more evasive and mysterious de Vincent family members. In a book full of cliffhangers, unexpected scenarios and red herrings, Armentrout’s realistic interactions between characters ground the story.

While Moonlight Sins closes on a solid note, there are many unanswered questions, which means readers have plenty to look forward to in subsequent installments.
