Rebecca Colfax has had to make some difficult decisions in the last few months, the most difficult one requiring her to have the courage to walk into a saloon and ask for a job. Penniless after her husband gambled away her money, Rebecca is trying to find her husband to let him know about his son. She just hopes there’s enough good inside him that he will come back to St. Louis with her and provide for her and the son she had to leave behind in an orphanage. Now she’s out of options and out of money and has no where else to turn.

She finds the nerve to enter the saloon and accepts a job as a dancer and singer, but she draws the line at selling herself. Slater Forrester has a very low opinion of people and figures it won’t be long until she’s bringing men upstairs with her. Then again, Slater has had a rough life and most often sees the evil side of people. But as he watches Rebecca do her job he’s continually surprised by her kindness.

Before long Rebecca is not only singing and dancing, but also helping the owner with his accounting. She may be very different than the other saloon girls, but soon finds herself fitting in the best she can, and becoming part of a very unusual family. When danger comes calling, Rebecca fears for Slater’s safety. Unwillingly, both Rebecca and Slater have become close, even though they know there is no future for them.

A Reason to Sin is the final story in the trilogy about the three Forrester brothers. Just like the two books before, this story will pull at your heart strings with two strong, emotionally damaged characters that won’t give up and choose instead to fight for what they believe in. It’s been a true delight to read about these Forrester men and the women with whom they fell in love.
