Suited For Sin: Sigh

Suited For Sin: Sigh by the wonderful Angel Payne is just amazing.  As can always be expected from Angel, this novel takes the reader through a myriad of emotions.  You can go from deep sorrow to hope to wistful sighs to breathlessness to chuckles and full belly laughs.  Sigh is the second book in the Suited For Sin Series and was previously released as Permanent Marker.  The description headers drew me in:

“Paradise gained…  Passion denied…  Destiny discovered?”

Considering that I read the previous book, I knew who the hero was.  I must admit that I had a little bit of wariness about Mark Moore.  Knowing that he is a retired Senator and the father of the heroine in the previous novel, Sing, I had the picture of a much older man in my head and that is not my thing.  It’s not bad, just not my thing.  But then I thought about the author.  Angel has never let me down, not once.  I have read all her available books and loved each and every one of them.  So, I erased that picture in my head and read it with an open mind. 

Mark Moore is a retired Senator and the father of the pop superstar Dasha.  He’s in Nassau to lead a corporate training.  My heart just hurt for him!  I just wanted to wrap him in a hug!  There’s so much more I want to say but I don’t want to spoil it.  I will say that when he first encounters Rose Fabian, the first words that came out of my mouth were, “Oh my.  This is going to be good.”  Then further along in the book, I realized that he isn't even old!  LOL!  Angel got me and my crazy imagination on this one.

Rose Fabian…oh boy did I see a lot of myself in her.  Sometimes I think too much.  She’s one of the students in the corporate training, and the star of the group as far as I saw it.  And as expected, there was more to her than intelligence and eagerness.  Her emotional wounds, her lack of self-confidence made me reflect on my life.  One of the things I loved about Rose was that while she fought what was in her head, she instinctively followed her heart and gut.  That takes immense courage.

On a personal note, this struck very close to home on several points.  No, I’m not dating a retired Senator who has a famous daughter.  Circumstances aside, I saw myself in Rose’s place even while wanting to be the one to stand up for her. 

I loved the chemistry between Mark and Rose.  Though it’s fiction, could it be real?  I say yes.  Without a single doubt.  I want to go into more detail, but I really don't want to ruin it for those that have not read it yet.  But...this book just sizzles!  If you're planning to read it, remember this one word: sailboat.  Believe me when I say that you’ll need a very long, cold shower afterward!  Angel Payne, you rock!  I can’t wait for the next book!
