"How far will Sophie go to become a courtesan?"

Fresh Fiction Review

Deeper In Sin
Sharon Page

Reviewed by Samantha Randolph

Erotica Historical | Romance Historical

Sophie Ashley needs to become a courtesan now that she has a child to feed. When she meets the Duke of Caradon, he seems perfect, but his own haunted past makes it difficult for him to be intimate. Together, they will find that their connection can't be discarded, but their situations may make it impossible to be together.

DEEPER IN SIN is a bit of a mixed bag for me. The premise is interesting, and the sensual scenes are very well done. The secondary characters, especially the other Dukes, add some fun to the story, and the twist behind Sophie's mother is very surprising. There are several mysteries throughout the novel, and most of them give a good shock.

However, some of the plot feels too farfetched for me. The drama is nice to a point, but it often escalates to somewhat unbelievable levels. Likewise, while I enjoy the different conflicts in the story, they don't mesh well. One conflict will take over for a significant time, leaving another forgotten, so when the other conflict comes back in, the building suspense/conflict has been lost. There are also some serious, complex issues presented in the book that are treated a little too simply for my taste.

Though Sharon Page's DEEPER IN SIN isn't the best book for me, readers who love high drama and a nice variety of sensual scenes might find this to be a good fit for them. The Wicked Dukes series thus far is definitely entertaining, and I can see other readers enjoying this more than I did.
