I did give this two stars, but then I realized I really didn't like this book. So I downgraded it to one star. I submit this guy as a nominee for "Jackass Hero Award." Complete and utter pig of a man. One of those books you wish would end with the heroine telling the hero to get lost.
I really wanted to like this book. but the hero killed it for me.
An emotionally weak hero is not what i look for in a HEA romance book.

Spoilers ahead

The part that really killed it for me - he went back to his mistress Hannah after his wife (the book's main heroine) lost their baby prematurely. According to him, he had no idea how to cope with the pain so he ran all the way back to london, leaving the heroine coping with the lost of her baby AND her husband. But that was not the worse part. the

From Fani:
'The book you should definitely avoid is "Perfect Sin" by Kat Martin. Hero, suposedly loving the heroine even though he thinks it's just lust, goes back to his mistress when the heroine miscarried their baby. I don't think there was any way the hero can redeem himself after such an act.'
Cheating bastard! I dislike romance novels with a cheating H or h, however, its been awhile since I've come across one this vile. The hero in this book is just appalling, but what makes it worse is the heroine who takes the douchebag back. I guess they're perfect for each other.

the book was worth more than a 3 star but rand killed it. i was devastated when he got back wid his mistress. one scene was even described n i found this very awful. if the situation had been reversed, how wud he react ? how does a cuckolded husband respond ? so y these double stds !? y does the heroine forgive so easily while i'm sure the hero wud be plotting revenge against her. caitlin summarized the events so well in the end, like she knew rand loved her. she had known 4 some time now bcoz h ...more
I ended up hating this book because the hero betrayed the heroine when she needed him the most. I can read books with a cheating hero and sometimes a book can even become a keeper despite the cheating, but in this instance the betrayal was too painful for me.
Not my favorite Kat Martin book and if it had been the first I had read, I wouldn't have looked for other books by her.
In so many romance books the hero -- who up to this point has been something of a man-slut -- is surprised to find that he is suddenly uninterested in his mistress and it takes him a while to connect that change in attitude with the fact that he just met her, the woman destined to be his one-and-only to whom he will remain faithful from that moment on, even if he doesn't realize

*Wie kam das Buch zu mir*
Ich bin ja ein Fan der Autorin. „Heißer als die Sonne“, „Die Perlen des Schicksals“ und „Perlen für eine Mätresse“ gehören zu meinen liebsten hist. Liebesromanen der Autorin. Daher habe ich mir weitere Romane von ihr günstig (0,99 ) gekauft und dieser hier gehörte dazu.

Da muss ich wohl nichts zu sagen. Das Cover ist einfach schrecklich kitschig und hässlich. Einzig die Blumen im Vordergrund finde ich schön. Aber was will man bei eine
I had low expectations when, by page 14, I read about Cat described as the lovely lady with high perky breasts for the second time. I suppose it was just in case I missed that two pages earlier. Lord Rand acknowledges that he is a duke used to getting his way and thinks of Cat as a loose of morals woman partly because she's American. I was hoping she wouldn't give in to him and his romantic persuasions, which didn't bode well for this romance.

Like so many other reviewers, I could not get past the cheating. I also disliked that weak male lead. (He doesn't deserve to be called a hero.)
Gave this a 3 based on the author's ability. Would have given it a 1 based it's content. I read this early in my reading career - before I realized I didn't have to finish every book I started. The H was just too angsty for this fluff-n-stuff gal.
I enjoy this author when I want a mind candy romance.
Never read Kat Martin but I will again.
