The art of sinning - Sabrina Jeffries

American artist Jeremy Keane refuses to return home and take over his father’s business. He’d much rather sample bevvies of beauties abroad, in search of a model for the provocative masterpiece he’s driven to paint. When he meets Lady Yvette Barlow at a London wedding, he realizes she’s perfect for his work—and determines to capture the young heiress’s defiant spirit and breathtaking sensuality on canvas.

No stranger to scandal, Yvette agrees to be Keane’s subject—in exchange for his help gaining entry to the city’s brothels he knows intimately, so she can track a missing woman and solve a family mystery. But when their practical partnership leads to lessons in the art of sinning, can they find a bold and lasting love? 

My thoughts:
I am always here with my, this felt different, well it did! Maybe it was because he was a American, he is so not Ton then. Also, he was an artist, and you all know those artist types ;)

Jeremy is an artist, and lately he has painted more bleak things. He has a past he wants to forget in America. His family wants him back. Then he sees his muse and have to paint her. So yes I got the whole, I am wounded and can never love again. That stuff hurts, but we all have to move on. Man up.

Yvette has a secret too. And with the ton around, yes I understood why it's a bad one. She was a bit too hasty though. Come on woman! You are nobility, there is danger around. Poor Jeremy who was faced with you!

They have their dance while he paints her (oh oh, her brother, he was yummy, I hope his book is next.) She wants Jeremy's help with a secret, he will do anything. They start to fall but he is all woe is me! And she is all, I want have someone with half a heart. You go girl, you deserve more!

Conclusion:
A cute dance that turns passionate.
