MASTER OF SIN
Robinson crafts an intelligent, powerful, emotional, highly sensual love story with a damaged hero and an exceptional heroine, moving the story beyond the typical and into the unconventional. Readers will become so invested in the characters that the fast pace and heated sexual tension only add to the delight. Fine storytelling.
Andrew Rossiter has sold himself to the decadent and wealthy for so long that he believes there is no other life for him. But when the mother of his son is murdered, and the toddler’s life is at stake, he flees Italy for the remote Scottish Highlands. Gemma Peartree is a plain brown mouse of a woman hired to be a governess to the little boy. Her sardonic wit and sharp-edged tongue is unattractive, yet Andrew is slowly drawn to her. Gemma has her own secrets and no desire to be noticed by her handsome employer. Alone in the Highlands, caught in a violent storm and with enemies stalking them, Gemma and Andrew discover a mutual need and a blazing desire that could be their salvation or their ruination.
