This is one of those books that had me thinking, "Why didn't I think of this? Holy Hell!" Lost Wages of Sin is a fantastic read, offering everything PNR fans crave.

Ava is hard as nails, yet, hides a vulnerability she's too terrified to reveal. As far as heroes go, Dante is lick-your-fingers-after-you-touch-him YUMMY. There are so many facets to this book, all of which lead you to the next installment in the series. I, for one, cannot wait to read more (Lucifer's book -- can I have it?).

4 Stars Exciting Debut of Sinners and Saints Series

Lost Wages of Sin is book 1 in an exciting new series entitled Sinners and Saints that hit the stores this April. Rosalie Stanton is an author who knows exactly what she wants to convey to her readers and does it with style, humor and red hot passion that leaves the reader wanting more of where her stories come from. Having loved two contemporary romances by the author before, I knew that Rosalie Stanton wouldn't disappoint me even if this is

This review was originally posted at Vampire Book Club.

Lost Wages of Sin has the kind of hero paranormal romance fans will want to eat up. Or lick. Or, hell, you’ll want him.

In addition to gorgeous attributes and sexual prowess, Dante is the guy that melts hearts.He’s a vampire who breaks rules, laughs at his own jokes and is generally badass … EXCEPT he would do anything for Ava. He loves her so deeply and is willing to risk the wrath of Lucifer and any powerful demon just for t

I stumbled upon this author while #convointruding on a twitter convo about someone named Dante and him giving some good tongue loving. LOL! My interest piqued, I asked my girl Dren what book was she talking about and where can I find it!

Lost Wages of Sin was a very pleasant surprise. I started reading the book with zero expectations but ended up thoroughly enjoying it. Ava is a demon who works for Lucifer. She had the misfortune of falling for an angel named Sebastian. Her relationsh

*Its 4 stars...I hate goodreads for its rubbish whole number review system!

Ava has done the unthinkable by falling in love with an Angel. Greed personified, she one of Lucifer’s most deadly and secret weapons, one of the seven deadly Sins. When a Bishop has a crisis of faith, Lucifer sends along one of his big hitters (i.e. Ava) to try to tempt him over to the dark side. Unfortunately, Big J has done the same by sending Sebastian, a hot Guardian Angel, to try to protect his faith. S

So last week I played #convoinvader on Twitter. Author, JA Sare was tweeting praise about a book she just read that was written by her critique partner, Rosalie Stanton. So of course my interest was IMMEDIATELY piqued. I love Author-to-Author love so I head on over to Goodreads.com and read the blurb. Shortly thereafter, I let my mouse do the shopping and BOOM! Chessiebomb's got a new book. Then the fun starts....

If you love demons, vampires, cosmic battles, romance, laughter and well written stories you should totally give this book a read. I seriously can't praise this book enough. Rosalie Stanton is my favorite up and coming paranormal romance author, but this book is a work of art from start to finish. With a great romance, there needs to be good chemistry between the characters and Ava and Dante are AMAZING together. I love couples that can banter back and forth and Ava and Dante certainly are good ...more

Summarizing this book in a paragraph is a daunting challenge. The story is so rich, so vibrant, that it defies explanation - to read this one is to walk the streets of Natchez, to feel Ava's fear and heightened emotions. It's to look in the eyes of Dante and see every wicked inclination, every desire, every unbelievably sexy, torrid thought, and beg for more. His love for Ava is so profound it will make your own chest tighten, the sex so hot your pulse will race. You can't help but experience ev ...more

Very entertaining read. I enjoyed the sarcasm between Ava and Dante. That Ava is one of the Seven Deadly sins was a very interesting twist. Review is going up at the Erotic Blog :D

In this the first in the Sinners and Saints series Ms. Stanton gives us an erotic look at the seven deadly sins in human form. She also humanizes Jesus and Lucifer and refers to them as the Big J and Luc. I had to throw out everything that I ever learned in Sunday school to read this story. I have to say that it was interesting, sensual and very erotic. I guess you could say it isn’t for the faint of heart or anyone who can’t think

A friends-to-lovers paranormal romance with a very intriguing concept … 3.5 stars

This is a well written, friends-to-lovers paranormal romance. It has a very unique concept – the Seven Deadly Sins embodied in human form existing with other notable Hell-dwellers – Hell Demons, Lilith (the mother of vampires) and Lucifer to name a few. The characters are well defined and engaging. There’s some angel & demon mythology along with intrigue, action and humour, plus several very steamy scenes betwe

Not bad. The sex scenes were excellent, decent plot, a great many sub-characters and a meta narrative that will play out for quite some time. An excellent beginning. (Free copy from Voracious Readers).

Ava and her siblings are Lucifer’s secret weapons. It's their job to spy for the Prince of Lies. Ava is good at following orders, until she falls in love with an angel. She finally realizes that trusting him was a mistake when he leaves her high and dry after learning what consequences could await.
Ava only found out about her angel’s flight of shame – as in back upstairs with his wings between his legs – after she had already quit her job. Now she needs to hide and her only ally is the too

This book was almost a DNF for me. Almost. It had everything I normally go for in a book. Paranormal….check. Female who can stand on her own…check. Ava was definitely what I would classify as a kick ass chick. Being Lucifer’s right hand man woman with a unimaginable amount of power. Unimaginable because no one is supposed to know she and her brothers and sisters even exist. Hot…smokin hot…. vampire, pain in females ass…check. Dante. Wow. I did love him from the moment he sauntered onto the scene ...more

Ava is one of the Seven Deadly Sins – her and her six siblings report directly to Lucifer. Ava likes who she is – but then she met an Angel, Sebastian and fell in love. Or so she thought. Ready to give up everything for him, her Angel finds out who she really is and flees back up to Big J. Now Lucifer thinks she is a traitor and Ava runs, afraid of what the consequences will be.

Not sure where to go or what to do, she runs into long-time friend, and vampire, Dante. Dante has always be

For everyone that's fallen in love hard and fast, only to discover the object of your affection is not who you thought they were, you're not alone.

Ava, one of Lucifer's seven deadly sins, has committed the gravest faux pas an agent of hell can—she falls in love with, quits her job over, and then gets dumped by an angel! Who saw that coming, right?

Ava's mistake has cost her dearly. Turning an angel would have been a coup in hell, but getting dumped by one after sharing her

Once word got out her angel tucked tail and ran back to the pearly gates Ava knew that there would be roomers, but what she didn't expect was the death sentence that would come as the result of them.

This is a paranormal romance. Ava is one of Lucifer's top employees and when she falls in love with an angel and hands in her resignation she makes a world of trouble for herself. What she doesn't know is that while she has been busy quitting her job so they could live happily ever after, Sebastian, the angel she fell for is writing her a letter telling her it's over! Now Ava has to deal with a broken heart and a boss chasing her b
