Rosalie Stanton + Review + Giveaway

Lost Wages of Sin (Sinners and Saints, #1)
Sin's work is never done...

Ava should know. For nearly two thousand years, she’s worked for Lucifer himself, infecting the heart of man with greed wherever she goes. She wasn't prepared to fall in love, certainly not with an angel. And she definitely wasn't ready to experience her first broken heart after her angel breaks things off in the form of a Dear Jane letter.

Now Ava has a problem. Lucifer believes she might have shared some of Hell’s secrets with her former lover, and her siblings face the possibility of being out of a job due to her indiscretion. Ava flees to the American South, hoping to slip off the radar and is met by a longtime friend, a vampire named Dante. Granted, Ava doesn’t know Dante has been in love with her for centuries, and doesn’t understand why he won’t leave her alone no matter what comes after her.

With Hell on her trail, Ava’s running short on friends. Meanwhile, she can’t ignore the suggestive looks Dante keeps sending her way. Something tells her it doesn’t take Hell to get things hot…

Review - 

Ava has spent thousands of years being one of Lucifer’s favourites, his special creation. One of the seven deadly sins, Ava is a being whose existence & powers have been kept a secret from all but the highest echelons of Hell.  Despite being one of the sins, Ava has been a good girl over all this time, especially in comparison to her brothers and sisters.

Dante is on hot vampire who is the bad boy we all dream about finding & taming.  He breaks rules, hearts & faces & is so totally in love with Ava you wouldn’t believe!  He would do just about anything for her & she just doesn’t have a clue.

After finally falling in love, with an Angel (poor Dante) Ava tells him all him everything, hands in her resignation & plans for the happy ever after ….. that never comes.  Her Angel flees back to heaven leaving her high & dry & facing a whole heap of trouble!

Ava is now deemed a traitor on the run from the denizens of hell & is feeling more than a little sorry for herself after just 3 days on the run. Enter stage left Dante to help her out of a tight spot & he sticks around to try & help her out.  Even after Ava tells him all her secrets (oops!) Dante make it clear that his light hearted sexual flirtations aren’t so light hearted after all & that he really does care for her.

Now it’s up to Ava to decide whether what she feels for Dante is real or if it’s a living in danger rebound from Sebastian thing…… an easy choice surely? Let’s find out!

I’m not usually one for novellas, preferring something a bit bigger to sink my teeth into.  This is why Lost Wages of Sin was such a pleasant surprise for me.  It has all the ingredients for a fantastic paranormal romance & is put together brilliantly.  Dante is a sexy hero who you would want to take home yourself, chain to a wall & never let go…… or is that just me?  Ava is a wonderfully strong female lead, who for once I didn’t want to smack round the head for being annoying, soft , whiny, bratty ………

A wonderfully well written novella which means that there is yet another series out there that I cannot wait to get my hands on!

4/5 stars
