Sidonie Forsythe set out in the night to trade herself so that her sister would live. Sidonie had dreaded the thought of bedding this man who was scarred leaving his face badly marked. She will be terrified but as the nights go by she will come to find there is more to this man and she starts to care but that happy ending she wants wouldn’t be easy.
Jonas Merrick was a man scarred for life and lives away from people as they call him a monster and a bastard. He will take pleasure in causing harm to his cousin, William, which is why he wanted Roberta instead he got her sister. Jonas will play the villain but finds that Sidonie doesn’t act like the normal scared woman he would expect.
Seven Nights in a Rogue’s Bed is the first book to the series Sons of Sin Trilogy from Anna Campbell who is a new author for me and one that I want to try more from. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I thought it played close to the Beauty and the Beast fairytale which I liked as that was my favorite when I was a child.
With the character Jonas he acted like the perfect villain but in reality he was a hero you just had to brush off the dust that had been building. He is cruel for the most part but that is because he has been hurt most of his life. I liked that he does soften a little by Sidonie’s presence being there in his house. She was a good sister for trying to help and use herself as a sacrifice but she is not one to be shy and scared. They battle each other but feelings start to happen and of course there will be a secret that Sidonie is hiding that will have Jonas hurt as it changed everything. There is no easy way for Sidonie and Jonas to find love as they start off like enemies, turn to lust then love and back to enemies that is until they find a way to be with each other. In order to do that they have to forgive and give each other a chance.
The villain is clearly William who is Roberta’s husband and Sidonie’s brother in law who likes to hit his wife. He is very cruel to the point of a monster who gets a thrill at causing damage. William will not be safe forever as he will see his own end by someone close to him.
There is no doubt that I will be coming back to this author to finish off her series and try her other novels.
