Publisher's Summary

Three nights of danger...

When her brother was arrested for murder, the ton shut its doors to Marietta Winters. No one would help her save him from the gallows - no one but Gabriel Noble. In exchange for taking the case, Gabriel requests three favors from the desperate young beauty, and Marietta has no other choice but to make a deal with the sinfully handsome devil.

Three nights of pleasure...

Searching for clues in the rough underbelly of London, Marietta must masquerade as a shamelessly wanton wench - much to Gabriel's delight. But Marietta swears to herself that her passionate moans are just for show. She could never fall in love with such a maddening, arrogant, seductive stranger...could she?

Three nights of sin...

Night after night, she satisfies his wicked cravings. But soon Gabriel wants more from Marietta than just three nights of sin - and even a sordid secret in his past won't prevent him from trying to possess her forever.

    Story
    "Loved this one!"

    The story begins as a family of disgraced members of the Ton, a sister and two brothers are dealt a blow. The youngest brother ends up in prison for a notorious serial crime of murder -- crimes he did not commit. But how to prove it?

    The older brother is a spendthrift and a drunkard, so he's no help, which leaves it to the sister to find a way to free her younger brother. She is given a name of someone who might be willing to help her, a mysterious Mr. Noble, but when she meets him she's told she can either pay 10,000 pounds for his services, or agree to do three favors in return, no questions asked, at a future date. Well, she has no money, so favors it is.

    There is a very good (and sexy) romance in this book, as well as an equally good mystery to be solved. It's a detailed and well written plot with many twists and turns to keep you guessing. The way that Mr. Noble calls in his many favors from those in interesting positions in the government to solve the mystery was clever. He would be an interesting character in a series on PBS, so I was very disappointed to learn this was not a series. Too bad!

    The narration was very good. Also, the resolution of the mystery was very well done. I can't remember the last time I had this much fun reading an historical romance, and actually, this one belongs in it's own category. P. B. Ryan writes some very good victorian mysteries with romance available on Kindle. "Still Life With Murder (Nell Sweeney Mystery Series, Book 1)," is the first of her series. Highly recommended if you like this sort of thing.

    I looked for other books by this author but was disappointed to learn that this is considered her best book. I would have loved to read more by her in this vein.

    Story
    "Less sexy, more interesting than it appears"

    3.5 stars

    Definitely not your average historical romance. This book deals with a far grittier reality than that of ton balls and vouchers to Almacks. The protagonists are barely part of society (him) or clinging to the fringe of society (her). The book opens with Marietta going to Gabriel in desperation to ask his help in proving her 18-year-old brother innocent of a series of Jack the Ripper-like murders. Their relationship develops as she collaborates with him to search for evidence that could free her brother.

    There are many things to like about this book, and the novelty of the characters and plot is a major one. Unfortunately, I was never able to warm up to Marietta enough for the romance aspect to completely work for me. Part of that may have been the audiobook narration. It was actually pretty good but it's possible that the portrayal of M wasn't as sympathetic as it could have been and that influenced my perception of her. I would also be interested to see what their life would look like a few years down the road, because their HEA seems a little fragile. It's great that they recognize that they love each other, but how are they going to make a life together?

    The climax of the book was heartbreaking and will stick with me for a long time. I don't want to say much else about it in order to avoid spoilers.

    Finally, the cover and title seem to promise one kind of book, while what we get is far different and, in my opinion, better. I can see someone being disappointed if they were expecting a very hot historical and got this complex, psychologically gripping murder mystery instead.

    "Much better than the title and cover art suggest!"
    Would you listen to Three Nights of Sin again? Why?

    The book had a good story line and the characters were well developed. Their plights were believable and the characters weren't annoying or naive or silly. Really enjoyed the mystery and the love story.

    Story
    "Sins that turn out to be blessings"
    Would you listen to Three Nights of Sin again? Why?

    Definitively! This is such a compelling story. You think you know what is coming but that is false. The story is goes deep into the human soul, at some times.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way the characters are unravelled. Layer after layer is exposed, and all new turns take you by surprise.


    What does Angèle Masters bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The different voices to the different characters. It makes it easier to follow the plot line.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Before redemption comes sin.

    Story
    "Expected the best, but recieved pretty good."
    If you could sum up Three Nights of Sin in three words, what would they be?

    I read this book on my Ipad before downloading the audio version. I loved the book, but the audio seems to fall just a bit flat. It's improving toward the end (I'm not quite done) but at one point the characters seemed to be so unexcited in the script that I debated stopping.

    Now, my memory of the book may be faulty. It's been quite a while since I read it last, but I've loved all of Mallory's other books and can't remember this one being so snooze worthy.

    I bought it on sale somewhere between $5 - $7 and I recommend it for this price, but I don't think it's worth using a credit on.

    Any additional comments?

    Great book! This one has more of a story line and plot with a bit of erotica but nothing like FSOG & Bared to You. Every time I figured out who the killer was I was proven wrong.
