A Season for Sin is a preview novella for Vicky Dreiling’s upcoming Sinful Scoundrels series. A novella is typically a short story with all the elements of a book including a beginning and an end. While A Season for Sin is short, it is a sample of what's to come from Ms. Dreiling’s upcoming spring release What a Wicked Earl wants, it is a story in itself. The novella introduces us to Andrew Carrington, Earl of Bellingham and his friends Colin Brockhurst, Earl of Ravenshire and Harry Norcliffe, Viscount Evermore. It also introduces us to Laura Davenport, Lady Chestfield, who has been a widow raising her step-son Justin for some time. Justin, Viscount Chestfield is a wild handful in need of a male’s presence, thus begins Laura’s novel solution to this ever growing problem. Laura is forced to make a deal with the devil himself, thus hooking the reader into wanting to grab the entire book right in that moment.
I have loved all of the books penned by Ms. Dreiling and I’m sure that What a Wicked Earl Wants will be no exception of the rule, as a rule I am not a fan of novellas because of their briefness but this one is worthy of your time. If you are a reader that cannot wait to get your hands on the next of Vicky Dreiling’s writings then this is a great way to tie over you appetite. The novella does have all of the wonderful elements that the author is known for, witty dialogue, interesting characters, and sizzling romance. It is a fantastic teaser, but a teaser it is.
4 for the briefness, 4 stars for the writing.
