Meet the "Seven Deadly Sins"
The seven Sinclair brothers and sisters live for scandal and delight in disgrace . . . until their father decrees that they must reform. Propriety has never come easily, but now they have no choice. Marry in haste . . . or regret in poverty!
The Sinclairs of Scotland are known throughout society as the Seven Deadly Sins. Cast out by their father and denied their inheritance unless they mend their wild ways, they travel to London to seek respectability. No member of the clan is more scandalous than Sterling Sinclair, the Marquess of Blackburn. The ladies of the ton are powerless to withstand his rakish charms . . . until Miss Isobel Carington comes along.
Ten thousand pounds if she marries Sinclair!
Isobel is horrified to learn that's the amount wagered at White's Club--and now all of London is eagerly betting on her future! She's already publicly spurned the marquess, a man she hardly knows, but she's sure he is up to something, as he launches a bold campaign of seduction anyway. But soon she is surprised to learn there is much more to this man than reckless adventure and bad behavior . . . and, against her will, she begins to relish the thrill of sinning with this stranger . . .

Posted January 01, 2009 by Jessica G. , Easton, PA"To Sin with a Stranger" begins what sounds to be a promising series, about 7 brothers and sisters cast out of Scotland to make a name for themselves. Called the "Seven Deadly Sins," each sibling represents a particular vice.
Sterling, the eldest, is supposed to be "Greed," but I really don't see it. He is concerned with money, but has the clear excuse that his family is completely broke. After meeting Isobel, he begins to change his ways (donating to her charity, etc.). But that change is only implied, as there is not much to show that he was a spendthrift in the past.
All of the characters are likable, but I felt there was a lack of development on all sides. The story is set up so there is supposed to be tension between the two main characters, but it just isn't there. Any conflict is quickly overcome. They fall in love quickly and that's all there was to it. I guess I just expected a little more...oomph.
All in all though the book is enjoyable. The characters are likable and the storyline is interesting. I'm looking forward to seeing where Caskie takes the rest of the characters.
