The Trouble with Sin â€¦ Is the devil withinâ€¦ Sin has
lived only for larks, laughter, and ladies of
easy virtue, eluding defying, and flouting all manner of
authority until his impetuous misdeeds
finally catch up with him.
Ned asked, "Are you not still bound for the clergy, Sin?"
Simon heaved a deep sigh. "It is my dear Mama's fondest
wish for me to join the church,
but I fear my nature is quite incompatible with a
theological vocation. I have searched deeply, and
cannot seem to summon an inkling of pious sentiment, which
makes me an exceedingly poor

"Even so, why would you wish to dirty your hands with

"Admittedly," Simon confessed, unabashed. "But now my
father has reduced my quarterly

is humiliating in the extreme! Unless I
wish to live under such a yoke for the next three yearsâ€”
which I positively do notâ€” I must make
my own living. If I must travail for my bread, how better
than by the fruits of my pen?"
"So you seek to combine your love of poetry and lewd
women by writing poetry about
lewd women?" Ned replied dryly.
Simon clapped Ned on the back. "Precisely! Don't you see
the ironic beauty of it?"
"What do you suppose will happen when your dear, devout
mama gets wind of this?" Ned
"I have taken every precaution to ensure my anonymity."
Simon retrieved the book from
DeVere. "My contribution to this little work is, and shall
forever remain, a wellÂ-kept secret."
The wage of Sinâ€¦ is twentyÂ-five percent of the
net! It seems a fantasy come true when Simon is
offered an independent income by combining his two great
passionsâ€” poetry and lewd women.
Unfortunately, maintaining anonymity may be much harder than
