My Beautiful Sin by J. Kenner

His greatest fear -- maybe his only fear? -- was losing her again. But here she was, his in every way. It was a gift. And damned if he didn't cherish it.

My review of My Fallen Saint

Everything Ellie thinks she knows is about to change.

Despite his dangerous past, billionaire Devlin Saint finally has Ellie Holmes in his life—and in his bed. Yet shadows still cling to Saint, obscuring his dark secrets and the confidences he swore never to reveal.

An investigative reporter, Ellie is certain the man she loves hasn’t told her everything. And when she starts receiving anonymous warnings about Devlin, she vows to investigate. Soon it becomes clear that Devlin isn’t the only one with things to hide, and the more Ellie learns, the more she realizes how dangerous it is to love Devlin Saint.

His touch is her sin…

After everything that happened in My Fallen Saint, Devlin and Ellie's relationship is stronger than ever. She discovered one of his worst secrets and she remained by his side in the end. However, the mystery of Mr. Saint is far from over. Devlin has made it clear that he has so much more to reveal, but that he'll be keeping his secrets close to the vest. And while Ellie tries to let it go, to be happy with the status quo, she's a reporter and answers are her bread and butter. Not to mention there is someone out there determined to drive a wedge between the lovebirds... someone who seems to know all of Devlin's secrets.

I must say, for someone who used to be a cop and is now a journalist, Ellie isn't very good at observing things. I figured out the intricacies of Devlin's world and I was wondering what was taking her so long to figure things out. I'm still not very impressed by this heroine, but the fact that the author finally gifted us with Devlin's perspective more than made up for any lack on Ellie's part. Yay for Devlin's POV!! His voice gave his character the dimension it was missing in the first book and made me absolutely fall in love with this story. The fact that I'm finally getting to know all there is to know about this man (I think) only makes me want more. Of him, of Ellie, of their love, and just what will happen next. I'm ready!!

"You won't lose me again," he says. "You're mine now. For better or for worse, Ellie, you're mine."

His touch is her sin.

Her love is his salvation.

Charismatic. Confident. Powerful. Controlling.

A brilliant investor with a Midas touch, Devlin Saint turned a modest inherited fortune into billions, and now operates one of the world’s foremost international philanthropic organizations. He’s a man determined to help the underprivileged, to fight injustice, and to make the world a better place. And that, at least is true.

It’s not, however, the full truth.

Because Devlin Saint is a man with a dangerous secret. One he’ll do whatever it takes to protect. And when investigative reporter Ellie Holmes turns her attention to an unsolved murder, she finds herself caught in a web of intrigue and passion as Devlin draws her closer and closer. But as the intensity and sensuality of their relationship grows, so do Ellie’s suspicions. Until she is no longer certain if the heat between her and Devlin is real, or only a facade he constructed to hide his dark and twisted secrets.

Broken With You by J. Kenner
True love never fades...

After surviving a troubled childhood, Denise can’t believe that she’s blissfully married to her partner and soulmate. She’s confident that not even Mason’s long-term, deep-cover assignment will shake their bond. And she certainly doesn’t anticipate that when he finally walks back through her door that he’ll have no memory of her, himself, or their time together…

When Mason is pulled out of an operation gone bad, all he knows is what he’s told — that he was a covert agent, that he has information vital to national security somewhere in his head, and that they can tell him no more for fear of burying those hard-fought secrets even further. They tell him nothing else; not even that the beautiful woman who makes his heart beat faster is not just his partner, but also his wife.

The secret she must keep wrecks Denise, who wants only to return to Mason’s arms. But despite the desire that still burns hot between them, she can’t tell him who she is—or that she’s carrying his child.

But when dark forces threaten both their lives in order to retrieve the information trapped in Mason’s mind, it’s not their past that will be tested, but the tenuous new love now burning hot between them.
