Powerful, addicting, and down right sinful!! The very definition of taboo romance – I was sucked in and couldn’t put this book down!

Lessons in Sin is sinful and smart, while also being witty and playful, the very essence of the story captured both Magnus and Tinsley’s personalities perfectly. The darkness, the curiosity, the overwhelming need and desire was all well written between the pages – this taboo story was like nothing I’ve ever read and I couldn’t get enough!

Tinsley is fierce, intelligent and a pure force for Father Magnus, a man who for the past nine years since dedicating his life to God, hasn’t strayed once. However, when Tinsley’s angelic face tempts his demons, right along with her sarcastic retorts and bratty attitude, Magnus isn’t able to keep a lock and key on the celibacy that he chained up years ago. The more she taunts him the more his monster is clamoring to break free. Nothing may be able to stop the rip tide of what is to come, but that is usually what happens in the presence of a Constantine.

Tinsley is everything I could have hoped she would be. Certainly a Constantine in every sense of the strong, independent, and fierce woman she needs to be for the world her last name requires of her, but she’s also intelligent, has a heart, and is fiercely loyal when it is justified. The more I got to know her the more I really enjoyed her character and knew she was perfect for Magnus along with being worthy of her last name.

Magnus was a bit of a mystery when the story began, but that aloof hands off man, helps keep him a shroud of in his darkness to start with. He’s dominate, in an almost scary way, yet he does things that let you know he still has a sense of compassion. He’s such a force unto himself that it’s easy to see why Tinsley gravitates to him, but know it is a slow pull and burn that will burn so hot…holy sinfulness!!

Lessons in Sin also fit perfectly within the Constantine world. It completely upped my need to read more of this family and within this world. I need to find out all of their hidden secrets and make sure they all find their dark and twisted HEA’s.


There’s no absolution for the things I’ve done.
But I found a way to control my impulses.
I became a priest.

As Father Magnus Falke, I suppress my cravings. As the headteacher of a Catholic boarding school, I’m never tempted by a student.

Until Tinsley Constantine.

The bratty princess challenges my rules and awakens my dark nature. With each punishment I lash upon her, I want more. In my classroom, private rectory, and bent over my altar, I want all of her.

One touch risks everything I stand for. My faith. My redemption. And even my life.

As if that could stop me. I need her pain, and her heart, and she needs my lessons in sin.
