The prodigal playboy is back

and nothing is the same…

…except the attraction that still sizzles between Jake Lowell and the woman he left behind. But the globe-trotting bachelor is in for a surprise! Nikki Reardon is now a mother—to the daughter he never knew. He once blamed Nikki for the fall of his iconic family…now he can’t resist her. Will their slow burn spark a second chance or burn down all they hold dear?


With the dramatic conclusion of the Dynasties: Seven Sins series, Janice Maynard brings the prodigal Lowell son home to confront the past … and the daughter he didn’t know he had! With book seven in the highly emotional series we get some closure on the Black Crescent scandal as Vernon has to face his accusers once and for all. I loved the series as a whole, but would have liked a little epilogue to tie up lose ends of punishment, etc.

Jake Lowell is a complex character. He seems like a nice enough guy, but his indecision of how to address the daughter he didn’t know he had is a bit wishy washy for my liking.

I loved Nikki’s character. She’s strong and loyal to a tee, and even though she still loves Jake, she’s willing to sacrifice herself to make sure he can be happy with his decisions.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who loves drama with your romance. You will get more out of each book if you read them in order so you aren’t missing bits and pieces of the scandal.
