Kinley MacGregor’s Born in Sin is just my kind of novel with a dark, brooding, fearsome, kind hero and a sweet, intelligent, loving, protective heroine. Add a dash of danger, suspense and humor and you have an incredible story with characters you’ll love forever.

Sin MacAllister belongs to no one and nowhere. Having experiences unimaginable cruelty all of his life he long ago learned never to expect anything else from life. And as the King’s assassin he doesn’t believe he deserves more.

Caledonia MacNeely is a spirited lass whose only desire is to return home to Scotland and live in peace. Well, she gets half of her wish when she’s married off to Sin and allowed to travel with her new husband back home.

But while she gets to return to her beloved Highlands, peace is the last thing she gets when her clan meets her new husband. One chosen for his ability to stop the acts of rebellion some members of her clan are committing.

Callie is such a great character and absolutely perfect for Sin. She’s just the spark of light his life needs. And it’s so great that he’s a character that can recognize that. From the beginning he respects her for who she is and acknowledges her strengths. What more can a girl ask for?

As I haven’t read any of MacGregor’s MacAllister novels I wasn’t able to follow any of the references I’m sure are there to previously featured characters. However, that in no way hindered my enjoyment of Born in Sin and in fact only made me eager to read any prior novels featuring MacAllisters. If they’re even half as good as this one is I’ll have to add them to my ever-growing list of keepers and as add Kinley MacGregor to my list of authors whose work I automatically pick up.
