5 stars for the ohhhh-my-gawwwwd blistering hot sex and 4 stars for an ok romance.

You name it this book has it: f/m, m/m, ffff, m/m/f, bdsm, voyeurism, orgies galore and every kind of um, let’s say, “unique” sex act imaginable –and all of this ick free to boot! How Page managed to do all that without the yuck factor going way up high is pretty impressive.

Here’s the story of a woman, Venetia, who paints erotic art in order to support her family because her father, who is also a painter, no long

Recommends it for: erotica / erotic historical romance fans
Rating: 4.5 / 5

I have to admit, that most of the time when I read an erotic romance (whether contemporary, historical, or something else), I only read a few chapters at a time, then go read something else. Because no matter how hot the book is, or how well written, I get a little bored with the non-stop sex and negligible plot. Sin by Sharon Page wasn't one of those books. Once I got into the story (it starts off a little slow), I was hooked and stuck with the book instead of switching off to a

WOW! This is one NASTY, DIRTY book, and I liked it.
Venetia Hamilton is no stranger to erotic art--her father's lush paintings are one of society's secret pleasures.
When Venetia is being blackmailed by her father's mistress because she has taken over her father's business of painting erotic art, she enlists the aide of Marcus Lord Trent. Together they go to an orgy at a country house to try and negotiate with the blackmailer. While there, they encounter people engaging in almost every kind of se

When Venetia Hamilton's father cannot paint his erotic art books anymore due to his arthritic hands, Venetia paints his books for him. When Marcus Wyndham, the Earl of Trent call on her she instantly knows that he is the man that features in her fathers sketches. He knows that the last erotic book was sketched by someone different, and works out that it was Venetia who painted it. He wants her to stop using his image and then makes her promise to paint no more books ever.

Alright, this is ridiculously good. So decadent, yet very traditional (for erotica). It's like an oxymoron.

The heroine is Venetia, who is a ghost artist for her father, a famous erotic artist. Yep, she's drawn erotic pictures and scenarios, since she was 14 or something, but is still a virgin. Along comes, Marcus, who looks strikingly like the man that stars her previous set of erotic drawings, and he wants her to stop using his face and stop drawing (in attempts to save her reputation).

Just a big no for me, thanks you so much.
Horrible, horrible book. Don't waste your money on it.

#1 Hamilton Sisters - Erotic Historical

Venetia Hamilton secretly paints exotic art. When she meets Marcus Wyndham, the Earl of Trent, she becomes involved in a web of secrets, blackmail, and intrigue. Everything threatens to boil over during a secret orgy attended by masked members of society -- and a murder is added to the mix.

Warning! Not for the faint of heart -- this is ultra-erotic!

I loved that there's as solid and interesting a plot to go along with the wildly erotic stuff.

I normally don't read historicals but I am glad I read this one. This book is very erotic and has every sex act you can imagine. It has srong characters, suspense and romance.

Okay, I'm not quite finished with this yet, but I'm thoroughly enjoying it. Let me start by saying that this is true erotica, mostly made possible (and plentiful) in whole by the hero's acquiescence into taking the heroine to her first orgy, per her strong insistence. What's refreshing is that this is a regency-era romance, and the heroine is a virgin to boot (a part that continues to frustrate the hero and the reader--all in a good way.) Historical erotica romance doesn't come around too often, ...more

This book is one of my favorite guilty pleasures. It’s RIDICULOUSLY and DELICIOUSLY raunchy. It’s erotica at its best – a strong plot, an intriguing heroine and hero, and steamy, scandalous liaisons. What more could you ask for, really, then a plot involving an erotic artist enlisting the help of a rakish Earl to get her into a week long orgy? I. KID. YOU. NOT.

I’ve come to love Sharon Page’s work. She writes delicious scenes that curl your toes and make you feel naughty, all while developing int
AMAZING! The beginning to my favorite historical erotic romance, Sin is an incredibly sexy read that never slows the pace for a minute. Eldest Hamilton sister Venetia has secretly been supplying the erotic art under her famous father's name since his health has declined, but when Marcus, the earl of Trent, recognizes himself in the art, he confronts her and outs her. At the same time, someone blackmails her family, so she goes along with Marcus to a country orgy, where she is sexually awakened w ...more
Wow, now THAT was an erotic read and one of the best/ is it really gonna happen HEA's ! DEFINATELY going to read and follow this author again. This book had suspense, murder mystery, non-stop orgies lol!, and a strong heroine with a reluctant hero which I love. The only reason I'd give it 4.5 stars instead of 5 is because it was a historical romance . Why that bugs me, I don't know lol. READ IT. It's worth it!

Believe it or not my mom introduced these trilogies by Sharon page. I love the book and even loved the other two books that came after them. Sharon Page is a good story telling. Her books are part of the paranormal romance and some are sexually explicit. I'm looking forward to her next book. Enjoy!

Best thing about this book?

The main male character, Marcus, looks exactly like Richard Armitage. A bloody great image to have in your read while reading this book, especially the steamy scenes. ;)

Seriously though, no matter how hot the sex scenes are, for me it gets really boring when there's nothing else to it. In this book there's mystery, murder, an interesting heroine and, as mentioned previously, a bloody hot hero.

Really good, entertaining read.

Hot, steamy and sexy! Had to have a cold drink and a cigarette after each chapter. Loved the characters and the storyline was also well done.

I actually read this series out of order but I still loved it & understood everything that was going on. Thankfully they were all standalone novels. This is the first book in the series & I loved it. Venetia an erotic artist meets Marcus, the Earl of Trent and her world gets turned completely upside down. Their passion melts the pages of the book throughout it from the beginning to the very end. I'm very picky when it comes to the Historian novels I read because I tend to get bored if th ...more
I went in thinking that I would love this book, but it seems that I was expecting too much. It was going okay until all the quim, cunny, etc... was thrown around. I know it is a historical romance, but still, lets call a spade a spade instead of these annoying words that just kept taking me out of the moment. Not only that when the pov's changed there was not way to tell because there was no spacing between sections, it would just abruptly be someone else talking or thinking.

Libro que fue muy criticado en su tiempo (Al menos eso lei) pero que ofrece lo que viene a dar, buen y diverso sexo, una historia de misterio algo "facil", pero bien escrito y con tension sexual. Ademas, la ambientacion tambien genial.

Lo recomiendo a todo el que quiera leer algo mas que "50 sombras" y plagios por el estilo.

Aunq atento caminante, que esto es erotica y hay orgias de todo tipo, queda dicho. Aunq creo que con lo que se esta editando y se esta volviendo popular, no pienso que este ti

I had no idea the ton of "prim and proper" England were such perverts! I have read historicals before where whores are mentioned, of course, and mistresses. I'll never quite understand how people lived that way. But orgies? A week-long orgy? Wow. And later, a masquerade ball at a theater full of debauchery? Bring it on! ;-)

Well I seem to be in the minority here as far as ratings go, and I thought my giving it 2 stars was rather generous. I usually like erotic romance, and being an historical is always icing on my cake, but this story just didn't do it for me. At the halfway mark I wanted to quit. The characters were just too unbelievable to me. Marcus, a man who is no stranger to carnal pleasure and participating in orgies agrees to take Venetia to an orgy to confront the person who is blackmailing them. While she ...more

When Rodesson's arthritic hands prevent him from painting, Venetia secretly produces his scandalous works. If her father could abstain from gambling and other wicked pursuits, she could easily earn enough to keep her younger sisters respectable. When Marcus Wyndham, the Earl of Trent, unexpectedly appears at her door, Venetia quickly realizes that one of her father's main characters is based on ...more
This book is hot! Call-the-fire-department-because-the-manor-is-burning hot! It takes us to am extended orgy at a house party in the country where we see erotic tableaus that mimic the heroine artwork and light her loins on fire.
The hero is mouth wateringly delicious and the heroine is sexy in physicality, personally and artistically. I wanted to be her.

There is mystery, intrigue and romance. There are fascinating sub-characters, unique sexual experiences and twisted subplots. The naughty is b

I just finished all of the Hamilton Sisters books and I must say, as much as I enjoyed parts of them, I think they would have been even better as novellas. If all three had been put into one volume (as shorter, more edited versions) I think they would have been more cohesive and my attention would have been kept a bit longer. About halfway through each book, I found myself getting bored. All three books seemed to have momentum problems in the middle with quick, tidy climaxes (NO PUN INTENDED) an ...more

Venetia is the illegitimate daughter of a promiscuous artist who can no longer use his hands to paint so she has used her talent to take up his craft to keep the family afloat. Now she has received a blackmail threat. Marcus is also being blackmailed by the aging courtesan, Lydia Harcourt who's trying to make her last money grab and retiring from London politics.

Virginal Venetia asks Marcus to accompany her to a week-long orgy that she knows Lydia is attending and wants to appeal to Lydia.

The plot is both artificial and implausible, but that's normal for both the romance and erotica genres. I just really liked both of the main characters, and found their interactions extremely hot. The voyeurism/exhibitionism ingredients also helped boost my rating, since I have an unhealthy interest in that sort of thing. There is also a mystery going on, for those who prefer a suspense element to be mixed in with the basic erotic/romantic story line. On the other hand, for those who find such e ...more

Rake, virgin and the threat of scandal.
Someone blackmails Venetia Hamilton, who is illegitimate daughter of famous erotica painter. Young woman is ready to do everything to prevent her family shame. Marcus Wyndham, master of carnal pleasures, might help her. Are they willing to involve in something which will last forever?

Sex, sex, lot of sex. In different positions and in different combinations. Everyone can find something interesting. The problem is, IMHO, that the storyline is pretty poor. S
