A short story from the Devil DeVere series, Vane is back with more fun and entertaining stories with her trio of characters. We see how Ned, Devil and Sin have bonded with each other. Vane always does a lot of explaining about her characters and that’s why I enjoy her writing. She has created such a world for her characters that it’s easy to relate and to of course fall in love with them. There is also no shortage of laughter as we learn how the men love their women and have their adventures. In particular, Simon stands out. We can see his love of poetry and how carefully he treats the women he loves. It’s a fun prequel to read before all the unhappiness, we get to see another side to this complex characters.

The Trouble with Sin … Is the devil within… Aspiring poet Simon “Sin” Singleton, has lived his life 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.

The wages of Sin is……twenty-five percent of the net!It seems a fantasy come true when Simon is offered an independent income by combining his two great passions— poetry and lewd women —by writing poetry about lewd women! Unfortunately, maintaining anonymity may be much harder than he thought…
