"A wonderful debut mixing magic and vampires"
Dulcinea Craven comes from a long line of powerful witches
and she inherits her powers all at once. While trying to
learn how to control her wild magical powers, she finds out
that her unwanted, would-be suitor, Lord Sebastian
Montfort, is now a vampire with evil intentions to capture
her and steal her powers for an ancient demon. Her best
chance is to find the Righteous, a group of warrior
vampires who police the evil rogue undead, to protect the
innocent. One of the Righteous, Micheal, a fierce
swordsman, captivates Cin and awakens her passions.
Cin is shown a world she never knew and is faced with some
very hard decisions.
Another debut novel that rocked my socks off! Jenna
Maclaine comes out swinging with this first book in the Cin
Craven series, and creates a character that you root for
all the way. Cin is strong yet vulnerable, sassy and sweet.
Micheal is her perfect match! A grand love arises out of
this wonderfully detailed story about life, loss, danger,
love, sacrifices, death and magic.
I absolutely loved it and am anticipating the next novel in
the series, Grave Sins, due to be released in February
2009. A prequel to Wages Of Sin can be found in the already
released anthology, The Mammoth Book Of Vampire Romance. It
tells Devlin and Justine's story.
