But despite each others need to stay distanced from one another, there is a sensual magnitism between them that neither one of them can deny, and a love unforseen that will bind them together.The Sweetest Sin is such a tender and poignant romantic story. I have really enjoyed reading from this author, and I just love all of her books and especially her covers, definitely some of my favorites :) The Sweetest Sin takes places in the medieval time period, up in the Scottish Highlands, and is a story about two warring clans, after one betrayed the other, and how two souls destined to be drawn together by fate, and a love worth fighting for. Its a tender love story, with witty characters and a plot that will take you to new heights of adventure and passion. I found that this is to be one of my favorites of this author, and I could definitely re read it. Definitely a romantic love story you wouldn't want to miss out on!!!
