I like this series - great characters, storylines and very sexy. The books are well-written and the characters are well-developed. I hope there will be other books about the families.

A True Love Story... July 25 2013
By Mother/Gamer/Writer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Originally Reviewed At: Mother/Gamer/Writer
Rating: 5 out of 5 Controllers
Reviewer: Heather

Family feuds have a way of destroying everything they touch. The one between the Huntington and St. Claire families is no different. Set in the late 1800's, Two Sinful Secrets is full of lust, action, suspense, devilish romance, and surreptitious pain. It pairs two unlikely foes against each other, but the tale starts as a masked encounter.

Lady Sophia is anything but a Lady. She wants freedom and doesn't live up to the Huntington ideals, no matter how hard she tries. At the young age of twenty-three she rushes off in a whirlwind romance with a young captain. Her family, facing scandal, disowns. Thinking herself in love, she quickly learned that all he cared for was between her thighs. Soon after the thrill's worn off, he dies, and she finds herself a widow and penniless.

Only a respectable marriage would allow her to return home. But Sophie doesn't want another husband to tie her down, and she's all but given up on the notion of love. Until Dominic St. Claire waltzes back into her life, but can they overcome the family feud and their secrets, and fall in love?

Dominic St. Claire is an actor, good at playing dark villains and weaving tales. More so, he's best at hiding his true emotions. With his fiancé deceased and a life to live, he throws himself into the theatre again. On a trip to Paris, he happens upon a woman he never expected to see again, one he spent years searching for to no avail. But when he learns of her family name, can he resist the urge to ruin the Huntington name, or will he open his heart to the woman who stole it all those years ago?

I cried a lot. I didn't want the story to end. This tale was weaved magnificently, and I found myself transported to Paris. It's surreal when a historical really comes to life because we can't physically step back in time.

The romance, oh there aren't words to describe the hurdles the couple faced. This is where I cried the most. Every time they got close, something would happen or some new tidbit would come to life. Dominic St. Claire may not have one any book boyfriend awards, but by the end, I finally felt like I knew some of his holdout. To think a feud could destroy so many years after the fact.

Well done, and I look forward to reading more Laurel McKee and her two series: The Scandalous St. Claire's and The Daughters of Erin.

By My Book Addiction and More - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
TWO SINFUL SECRETS by Laurel McKee is a wonderful Victorian Historical Romance. #2 in "The Scandalous St. Claires,but can be read as a stand alone. See,"One Naughty Night".

"A hundred years has passed since the bitter rivalry between the St. Claires and the Huntingtons began. But in London, the feud goes on . .."

With gambling,secrets,danger,family,theater,romance and love. Fast paced and filled with action and sizzling passion. Follow, Dominic St. Claire,out for revenge and Lady Sophia Huntington,an actress, on a journey of discovery as they fight their passion,feelings and learn the meaning of true love. The feud between the Huntingtons and the St. Claires has gone on for years and generations but will history repeat itself or find happiness. A not so magical romance filled with danger and passion. Ms. McKee has done it again with this series. I can hardly wait to see what happens in the next installment of "The Scandalous St. Claires". Received for an honest review from the publisher and Net Galley.

...enjoyable, intriguing, witty and sensual love story... Feb. 4 2013

Here comes the second installment in Laurel McKee's Scandalous St. Claire's series.

We met Lady Sophia Huntington [now Mrs. Westman] as she `bites more than she can chew' in her first meeting with our hero Dominic St. Claire who owns the Devil's Fancy hell in London.

As her story opens, she's now a widow and residing in Baden-Baden, Germany. As she sits at a gaming table across from a man that is making her skin crawl, playing for very high stakes, we are apprised of the reasons behind her dire straits.

She was always pushing that proverbial envelope and eloping with her Captain Jack Westman, was the last straw for her ever `proper' family and now she's become a `persona non grata' to them. Now that she's been widowed, she harbors a wish to try and get back into their graces and dreams of being welcomed to their bosom by becoming more proper and worthy of their love. That dream requires a lot of money, which she can only earn by only means available to her and that's by playing cards across Europe and working her way toward England.

At present, she finds herself in Paris and helping a friend, Camille Martine, who is opening up a gaming club of her own and knows that Sophia would be a perfect woman to help her with it.

Dominic St. Clair is still weary and not a fan of the Huntington family even after his sister marries one of them. He still harbors bad feelings toward them and it all started with Mary St. Clair, who married John Huntington two hundred years ago.

He accompanies his theatrical family to Paris as they plan to put on a play and while there he is eager to use this time to work through some sad memories that have made him melancholy of late.

He also wouldn't mind looking into what Paris has to offer in regards to the gaming hells and that's where Camille comes in as she invites them to her brand new establishment. While Sophia recognizes Dominic right off, it takes him a bit longer to realize that Mrs. Westman is one and the same masked woman that got under his skin a few years back and almost unmanned him after one passionate kiss they shared.

While the kiss scared Sophia into retreat, Dominic was always intrigued by the masqued lady and wondered why she ran from him.

Once they reveal to each other their identities it becomes more and more evident that they have many things in common and slowly friendship and attraction come ever so close and Dominic is more than happy to offer Sophia a marriage in order to protect her from a very dangerous man who is obsessed with her and won't take no for an answer.

I may have not liked Sophia at the start of this book, but boy did she grow on me. I came to like her spunk, determination and her free spirit most of all. I also thought using Mary St. Claire's diary excerpts was helpful to all of us understand why the two families became mortal enemies.

Ms. McKee's "Two Sinful Secrets" is an enjoyable, intriguing, witty and sensual love story that I'm happy to give my Five Quills!

Laurel McKee continues her Scandalous St Claires series with this second installment, featuring Dominic St Claire (brother to Lily, the heroine in book 1) and Sophia (cousin to Aidan, book 1's hero.) I was really looking forward to this, since their first encounter eclipsed the primary romance in One Naughty Night. A young, masked Sophia shared a passionate kiss with Dominic at his family's gaming hall, but ran away before it ever became more. It was an encounter neither one has ever forgotten. Even though years have passed, and Sophia has been both married and widowed, the memory of that kiss still scorches her. And Dominic has never stopped looking for the masked woman who captivated him.

The two come face to face in Paris, where Dominic is on family business. Sophia is trying to start a new life for herself, after her late husband left her penniless. They are drawn to each other again instantly. But Dominic is caught up in the longstanding animosity that his family holds against hers. At first, he tries to stay away, but goes on to see a relationship with her as a surefire way to get under her family's skin.

I must say, just like in the last book, the family feud is very weak. And the fact that Dominic wanted to use Sophia to hurt her family made it difficult for me to really like him. Yes, he eventually comes around, but it's almost too little, too late.

In the meantime, there is a man from Sophia's past who is stalking her. This is the main external conflict in the book, and it didn't work for me. This is a powerful and attractive man who could have anyone. His actions and obsession with Sophia are over the top and simply don't have enough of a basis to ring true. It made him seem almost like a caricature of a villain, instead of a believable threat.

There were some parts of the book I really liked, though. Sophia, for instance, was a pretty good heroine. She was sympathetic with her cold family and loser husband. You could really see that she has grown a lot, and she does her best to do right by Dominic. Also... the sex was hot. Solid tension and great payoff. Plus, McKee is really great at laying the groundwork for future books. She did it last time, and she does it here again. I can't wait for Elizabeth and Brendan's book. There is so much angst there!!!

I definitely enjoyed it more than One Naughty Night... and I have high hopes for book 3.

I wasn't very big on this book. The storyline seemed interesting enough but my first issue with this book came with the fact that up until about page 100 the hero & heroine had only one encounter together which probably amounted to 5 minutes. I found this portion of the book to be very slow and boring.

When they finally met again it took off from there but it was a bit rushed in my opinion. They wasted no time getting intimate and they gave no thought to the consequences throughout the rest of the book. It just seemed odd. I found it to be trashy, not romantic.

None of the characters ever grew on me. There were unanswered questions. The title of the book doesn't make sense to me. And the Diary that we read about throughout the book seemed pointless to me.

The writing of the book wasn't bad but the characters and the story did nothing for me. It was poorly executed. I can't say that I'd recommend this book.
