As a warder, Jackson Tybalt is one of the good guys until he sees the man he loves kissing another. Betrayed and angry, Jackson tempts danger and death, ignoring the pleas of other warders to be careful. It’s a vile mood in which to start a romance, but that doesn’t stop the kyrie Raphael, who more than anything wants Jackson for his very own.
Jackson doesn’t want a hearth, he doesn’t want a lover - he just wants dark and painful, and Raphael will give him what he wants. But sometimes the sins of the flesh are just what a body needs to bandage the wounds of the heart, and Raphael will hide the tenderness he feels for Jackson for as long as the warder wears the guise of the Sinnerman.

I listed to this book on my commute to and from work. It was a nice distraction.
I enjoy an "angsty" romance and this story fit the bill.
Someone without an East Coast accent. I found it distracting.
Not applicable. Sinnerman is part of a series and I have already read the other books.
The sound quality was an issue for me when listening to this book. At times the readers voice seemed to fade a bit as though he turned his head away from the microphone.
A voracious reader since I was a child, I am now enjoying novels and novellas on Audible.
I would buy more from this team, but only if they promise to iron out the audio glitches. I found myself distracted from the story by having to adjust the volume and bass/treble settings. Not a good thing while driving. Story is OK. I found myself pulled in to the goings on.
Jackson is a warder whose hearth has fallen for someone else. He’s heartbroken and acting like he doesn’t care if he lives or dies.
Raphael is the Kyrie we met earlier who drank from Mal but who only has eyes for Jackson.
Though it takes a lot of “teaching”, Raphael shows Jackson he has something to live for – including love.
The love between Jackson and Raphael is tough to watch at first. Jackson’s heart is broken and he’s so sad. Rafe doesn’t seem like he’s good for Jackson at all, and it feels hard to root for him.
I loved how the story finally comes around to show us the real path. It was a very cleaver writing and it went over well.
This was a great addition to the series and I recommend it with 4 of 5 stars!
I've already said all I need to about this narrator. He's not good.
2 of 5 stars
Overall 3 of 5 stars
Not a lot of action in this one but there's love lost and love found which shouldn't surprise Mary Calmes readers. Oh yeah, a brand new baby gets birthed into the Warders' family :)
Favorite quote: "Labels are for cans not people"(by Unknown) Jim Dale is my favorite Narrator of all time. His version of HP was my first Audio-book experience! Mostly listen to Mystery, Thriller, Sci-Fi - Fantasy, and Romance.
The friends that appreciate the genre, would be happy to see mostly positive depictions of love, with a well balanced amount of fantacy.
Raphael, he shows the power love true love can override the doubt of peers.
That wonderful bass voice gives the story a certain "je ne sais quoi".
The ending scene in the rain.
This book got me hooked on the entire series and I listened to them all in 24 hours.
Yes . Entertaining and well narrated .
Yes , just pay attention to the rules .
The sniffling bitchy boyfriend gets what he deserves....s--t !
! Love to listen to jazz, r/b and listen to erotic or a good paranormal sci-fi and " good narration is everything"
I love Ms Calmes "Warder series" this is another good one. Jackson finally give in to the real love of his life .
