Reading this little novella was a chore! I can't for the life of me comprehend some of the rave reviews here. Unless, of course, said reviews were solicited somehow. Boggles the mind.

To begin with, the premise of the story is all wrong. The so called misunderstanding notwithstanding, how on earth does one explain away a woman of no consequence proposing marriage to a Marquess?!! And getting away with it as if it was the order of things?! Secondly, even American females of the time did not travel alone and put themselves up in a gentleman's house ALONE. No 'gentleman', let alone a peer, would have consented to such an arrangement. A genteel woman of good birth, whether English or American, would have been chaperoned. A father or a brother would have travelled with her. If she'd arrived on a gentleman's doorstep unchaperoned, then she would have had to be provided with one by her host. And a lady's maid would not have been enough! No, she would have needed some older female relative of her host's to stay in the house for the duration.

All of this not to mention that our little 'heroine' Viola was nothing but a tart! She actually made all the sexual advances, encouraged them, but had the gall to feel affronted when Julian offered her carte blanche (i.e. invited her to become his mistress).

Falling in love in six-months of letter-writing?? PUU-LEASE!! Just how many letters do you think were sent to and fro from New York to England during that time? Without even knowing what each looked like too, if you please! Then there is more 'falling in loving' going on upon arrival. All this lovey-dovey in a matter of days might have been believable if it were just the young, impressionable heroine doing it, although in this case, even this is debatable.

Lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride. The Cynfell brothers are the very embodiment of a sinful existence. But could the right woman change that?

Wrath

Locked behind the walls of Lockwood Manor, Julian Cynfell, the Marquis of Lockwood three times widowed whiles away his days writing angry letters, drinking and sleeping. He never expects his solitude to be interrupted by a brazen American heiress. Viola Thompson can’t believe her luck when the English lord she has been corresponding with for the better part of a year asks her to visit him. This has to mean an offer of marriage surely? Finally, Viola will prove to her family and friends that she is more than a ruined woman with no prospects. Not to mention she knows they will be a love match. No one could write such beautiful letters without being the perfect man.
But when she arrives in cold, dreary England to be faced by a foul-tempered, grizzled, hungover handsome marquis, she wonders if it could be the same man who wrote such lovely letters.
A short read but an entertaining series opener. Julian believes he has to now live his life alone after losing three wives but Viola awakens feelings in him that he’s not felt before. I read the book in two sessions, I liked both Julian & Vee they were meant to be together & his emergence from his darkness was well done. Oh what is it about libraries? Must be the sexiest room in the house. I’m hooked on the series & need to find out about the six brothers & their sins

Dull dull dull, unlike able characters, weak plot. Laughable behaviour, no "lady" of the time would travel unaccompanied from America to England and be granted admittance to the home of a single gentleman. Viola was a singularly unlike able character, the leading "Lord's" name escapes me and I only whizzed through the book yesterday. So very pleased it was free. Won't be bothering with anything further from this author

Luckily this was a free book, but after a promising start, the story went rapidly downhill. The hero went from dark and brooding, to indecisive and unable to keep to his plan to send Viola away. She, at least had some backbone to her, but why she put up with his seducing her one minute, and then being told he would never marry her, I don't know. I lost all patience with both of them, and the superficial story.

An introduction to the eldest of seven brothers and their mother. It is lovely to read a book written by an author who is resident in England and therefore understands the geography well. I have given 5 stars to the next book about the second brother and sincerely hope there are another 5 tales to follow.

Sinful Confessions is the first instalment in Samantha Holt’s sensual Victorian Romance series, The Cynfell Brothers. This novella is the story of Julian Cynfell, the Marquess of Lockwood, the eldest of seven very naughty brothers. Julian embodies the sin of wrath, being a very grumpy lord indeed, wallowing in self-inflicted solitude since the untimely deaths of not one but three wives. Believing himself responsible for their demise, he shuns and is shunned by society and has driven all but his most faithful servants away. His only real solace is the correspondence he has struck up with Viola Thompson, the daughter of a business associate, whom he believes is far out of harms way in America.

But oh what tangled web! Julian is completely blindsided when the beautiful and brazen Viola unexpectedly turns up on his doorstep, alone and unchaperoned. Just what is a reclusive lord to do? Misunderstandings abound as Viola is under the distinct impression that they are to be wed, a state that the hero is sworn off, believing that he is a danger to any future spouse.

Julian is now forced to deal with his demons as he fights his immediate and growing attraction to Viola, convinced he needs to keep her at arms- length for what he believes is her own safety. For Viola’s part she is understandably taken aback when she realises the error of coming to England, but I liked her spunk and how she bounces back making the most of the situation and Julian! As an American she tests the sensibilities of both Julian and English society at the time to its limits, which makes for some highly amusing scenes!

The romance between the hero and the heroine is at the heart of this sensual romance by Samantha Holt.
