Publisher's Summary

Finn Dalton is the black sheep of his privileged family - because he's always trying to do the right thing. But do good guys let bad girls go free? Ask British heiress Felicity Trent. Finn should have called the cops when he caught Felicity with a fortune in stolen jewels. But after the hot night they'd shared, betraying her meant he'd never have her again. Two years later, he discovers Felicity scantily clad and handcuffed to a bed in a posh Manhattan hotel room. Finn has three choices. Turn Felicity in. Turn her loose. Or turn her on….

Finn Dalton is bad boy personified. Felicity Trent should know; she's a bad girl herself. But for Felicity, life as a jewel thief is almost as seductive as Finn is - and that's dangerous. Because for a girl like her one night is all she needs to get what she wants, anything more means trouble. Now, with both of them after the same thing--the rarest of treasures--who gets there first might be the last thing they want.

Superb writing, intelligent, humorous and engaging

Love Donna Kauffman's Black Sheep series: Each book of the series was similar but definitely different from the other stories. Superb writing, intelligent, humorous, and engaging. Loved it! I have now read all of Donna Kauffman's books.

Sebastian York is an excellent narrator and a great storyteller. Great voice and voice inflections when he communicates salient information overlaying a solid storyline. I definitely will do an audible book search for other books; Sebastian has narrated, as I have done with other exceptional narrators, which has introduced me to so many new authors.

Well done to the whole team. I want more of this quality, how fast can you write another one? :-)

great end to the Black Sheep

This was a great end of the Black Sheep trilogy. Oh how the mighty last one fell. it was fun to watch Finn finally meet his match. Once again Sébastien York did an excellent job with the narrative.

Loved the series great read

I was so excited when I found this series as I LOVE Sebastian York he is my absolute favorite male narrator. However having him narrate a British Female not such a good idea. His voice is 100% male I have heard him do females but so disappointing. His voice is so full of fantasy for a girl!! I also loved the story line just enough hot stuff and intrigue. I love books that make you want to be part of the story and just go on forever!!

Finn and Felicity

Finn Dalton from a privileged family, has shared his wealth with his 2 BFF's and lives on a large estate in Virginia. The 3 of them do good deeds to right the wrongs in life that otherwise wouldn't be done. Finn meets Felicity again after meeting her several years previously and is still smitten with her, and she with him.
Both are on the lookout for a special sapphire which is on the black market. Finn has to decide what to do with Felicity. Turn Felicity in to authorities. Forget about her entirely (which hasn't been working thus far) or join forces.
I loved the banter between Finn and Felicity. The verbal sparing and strong personalities. I found the story lagged a little in some places and I'm not sure if it was to offer other possibilities on how the story could go, but the chiding between the two more than made up for it in my opinion.
Sebastian York always does a fantastic job, although I think this time was the first time I couldn't quite tell the difference in his female British characters when he was narrating, while he gave all other characters a terrific infliction.

Awesome ❣️

This is the last book of the Unholy Trinity and was definitely worth the wait. I love Finn. He is so hot, sexy and caring. I think he is my favorite of all the characters. Felicity is good to and play well together. The story not only is romantic, but has lots of intrigue as they strive to fine a missing jewel.

Plot was Convoluted

Donna Kauffman is a great author, and I love Sebastian York. The other books in this series were excellent. This one was ok, but for me, the plot was hard to follow.

The boys are all matched - and then there was...

Love Sebastian York reading anything.

Story was confusing at times and very verbose.

What happens next - perhaps another book with all characters ? A joint mission?
