Guilty until proven innocent.
That’s the way the world works, right?
I’m tired of being convicted without evidence, all because my last name is Gable.
The Riscoffs might own this town, but I’m done following their rules.
If only I could forget just how easily Lincoln Riscoff can drag me under his spell.

It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of this author; however, there’s always that thought in the back of one’s mind as to whether new books or follow-ups will live up to your expectations. Is there a limit to creativity? It seems March’s is boundless. Her writing, storyline and characters don’t just enthuse, they dazzle. As per usual in all of her series, cliffhangers are the name of the game. To my surprise, Guilty As Sin doesn’t exactly begin where Richer Than Sinner finished. We are taken back in time and not with Lincoln’s words, but Whitney’s. Flashbacks continue throughout the book from a dual perspective which was for me of extreme importance. Not in the slightest bit confusing and very well construed, it helped me understand how both her protagonists felt about a past omnishambles, a family feud totally out of control, and the present…get ready for more twists than turns.
In the heat of the moment, how often do we let go of our anger without taking into consideration the feeling of others? Then regrets set in and it doesn’t matter how hard we try, if you’ve hurt someone you love, earning their forgiveness isn’t just saying sorry. In Lincoln’s case, the only way he could convince Whitney of his regret was by showing her he’d move mountains. Hmm…a metaphor impossible to achieve, he’d still do his utmost to protect her from any outside interference without invading her space. Contrary to the first book which was very character driven, in this installment plot complexities abound. And although his stance never wavers towards his family, the legacy is questioned in more ways than one.
I really liked how Whitney pulled herself together and Lincoln…just wow! He demonstrated to me he’s one of those rare species of men who could put himself into the position of the woman that’d beguiled him from the word go. He discovers those lost years without her weren’t as he thought, is astounded by her natural gift that hadn’t been able to flower as it should have, even encourages it and learns how she was treated. Whitney changing her attitude was crucial if she wasn’t going to be walked over. Her positiveness made me want to jump into my Kindle and give her a high five; nonetheless, a certain manipulating individual is on her heels ready to disrupt the status quo.
Halfway through the read and it looked like everything was moving in the right direction. I could have kicked myself because there was no way March would ever let her readers off so easily. She cannily gave me reasons for being optimistic; Whitney and Lincoln began to relax with each other, their dialogue’s lighter, witty remarks are shared and I could see her slowly giving in to his charms. And all I’m going to say about the frisky scenes is HOT, HOT, HOT! Then a bombshell’s dropped and that is when the pace of the story really picks up and complications set in.
If you’ve read Richer Than Sin, I have no doubt you’ll be itching to get your hands on this one. March has once again delivered a thrilling angst-ridden read, her side characters are either lovable or you want to strangle them with your eBook reader cable charger! I can’t thank the author enough for not making us wait too long for Reveling in Sin, coming 23rd October ‘cause the cliffy, deary me…just wait and see! Bravo!
From New York Times bestselling author Meghan March comes a brand new saga of forbidden love and second chances.
A Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after. Our family feud is the stuff of legends.
Ten years ago, Whitney Gable caught me off guard with her long legs and grab-you-by-the-balls blue eyes.
I didn’t know or care what her name was.
Like any Riscoff worth the family name, I went after what I wanted. We burned like a flash fire until she married another man.
She hates me, and she should.
I objected on her wedding day.
Now she’s home, with those same long legs and man-eater stare, but there’s no ring on her finger.
They say a Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after . . . but I’m not done with Whitney Gable.
I’ll never be done with her.
Whitney Gable is the kind of woman you fight to the death to protect.
I’ve finally learned my lesson, and it’s time to prove I’m the man who’s worthy of her.
I don’t care what it takes, because failure is not an option.
No matter who or what stands in our way—this time, she’ll be mine forever.
