Within a tent a gypsy woman unfolds the sins and faults of three the men. Each will have a cross to bear, but this story is about just one man. Gather close as the story begins…

Sir Alasdair MacLachlan is a known rake and womanizer that could care less what others think of him or his ways. He would have kept up his pace of hedonistic behavior, expect for one, tiny little intrusion, which comes in the form of a small child and the child’s sister. The little girl is said to be his, and with one look into her eyes, Alasdair is a goner. Now Alasdair will have to face growing up and taking responsibility for his actions.

Alasdair is over thirty and well on his way to bedding half the Ton. Between his drinking, gambling and women, he is happy and completely satisfied with his life. Then out of the blue his world is turned upside down with a little bundle of joy. It is not just the baby that is dropped into his lap, but the child’s older and much too sexy sister.

Esmee Hamilton has nowhere else to go but to Sorcha’s real father. With her mother’s passing and her stepfather kicking her and the child out of his home, Alasdair MacLachlan is the only resort left to her baby sister. Even with his rakish lifestyle, Esmee has no choice but to leave Sorcha with him. In the end, Alasdair will panic and make Esmee an offer she cannot refuse, but living with Alasdair is more than Esmee ever bargain for!

One Little Sin is the first in the Sin, Lies, and Secrets Trilogy by historical authoress Liz Carlyle. With a splendid and graceful style of her own, Ms. Carlyle gives this tale the correct verbiage and polish that sets it apart from other books in the genre. Ms. Carlyle sets the standards for great romantic historical novels, by creating unique and interesting plots, three-dimensional characters, and dialogues that sizzle.

The chemistry is phenomenal, which kept this reader involved and devoted. This novel looks to be the start of a highly addictive trilogy.
