Publisher's Summary

When my kidnapper–the most powerful man in Italy–makes me an offer to be his wife, I'm forced to accept.

Mila

He's a killer. A monster. A thief. He stole me; ripped me from a life I thought was mine, and forced me into his. There was no negotiating. No choice to be made. No way out.

He says once I give him what he wants, he'll let me go. But I don't believe him. Taunting me, humiliating me, hunting me...it thrills him. He's addicted to my tears, and amused by my suffering. I know he won't stop until he breaks me.

But I won't go down without a fight.

Saint

She's an orphan. A debt. A secret. They tried to hide her from me, but they underestimated my determination to always get what's rightfully mine.

Now, she's exactly where she's meant to be: at my side...and at my mercy.

The blood that runs through her veins is payment for a debt made between two families. But to me she's nothing but a pretty face and a means to an end. A way for me to feed my vengeance.

Once she gives me what I want I'll let her go back to her miserable, mundane life. But for now, she's mine to play with...until she breaks.

The Sins of Saint is a dark romantic suspense series intended for mature listeners.

OH LORD.. HE’S SOOOO DELICIOUSLY BAD 🤭😉😋🤫

I knew I shouldn’t start this Trilogy until all three books were released but, having tasted Bella J’s other books, I’m a weak willed woman and I just couldn’t stop myself from delving right into this deliciously dark delight. But I’m cursing my decision right now because the CLIFFHANGER is brutal and the sudden withdrawal of this toxic relationship is hard for me to come down from.

His name is Saint but he is a black-hearted Devil.. he is raw, dark, wicked seduction with cold, dead eyes and he oozes power and liquid domination which radiates off him clouding the air his captive Mila breathes. He killed and caused devastation in his wake holding all the cards in a game she didn’t yet know how to play. But Mila has inner strength honed from being an orphan and passed from home to abusive home then surviving the streets. When Mila’s ambushed their eyes clash and meet in hate-filled fiery gazes.. and Saint is relishing the hunt while Mila is dreading her only option.. marry him.

She will need to be strong and courageous to survive the challenges ahead.. survive and walk away after her kidnapping, her relocation to Italy, his secrets, his seductive taunts and his devastating revelations. Their hunger is primal, intense and raw and, when he’s not verbally taunting, sparring and being abusive, he likes to tie, likes to punish and likes to dominate. Anger, rage, fight, wicked sensual temptation and venom flows through both their bloodstreams as the captive pawn sheds precious tears and valiantly defies with every toxic encounter. However, it only intrigues and lures the monster in more as he threatens to break, dominate and dish out dark consequences.. but who will break first?

Worth a credit? Yes I loved.. loved.. loved every intense, suspenseful well-written dark chapter.. every sensual sizzling paragraph.. and every bitter broken word. And the dual POV back and forth was expertly brought to life by Michael and Charlotte’s stellar narration.

The Rise of Saint

This book turned out better than I expected…The story between Mila & Saint was just getting interesting and then came the cliffhanger, ugh! On to book 2 “The Fall of Sin” how long before we see that available Audible? Is this book worth a credit sure that’s if you like cliffhangers.

ANOTHER WOW STORY

Very well written. I'm looking for book 2. When??? I should have waited too. I didn't. Alas, the story is so good. I love the villain. He's so juicy. This is going to be another great trilogy for sure. Can't wait. Highly recommend.

Uncomfortable Desires

I struggled a little because Saint was so mean and Milana was so excepting, but not all the time. I love a good story and this book got very good at the end. Now I'm running over to book 2 to see what's going on.

Saint is different from other Alpha males

This is the first book I read by Bella J and it will not be the last. Most of the time I can guess the ending within the first few chapters, however this book takes you on a roller coaster ride all the way to the end of the trilogy.

Good but…….

I thought the storyline was OK but the male narrator sounded Scottish not Italian it was hard for me to listen to his accent when the storyline was in Italy .

Lord her dialog

I liked the story but the female character when she had her internal dialog would just go on and on from chapter to chapter. She would say then same thing in varying ways that wanted me to gag her. This book is mainly them having internal dialogs but no action, interactions, etc. I stuck with it but my its a hard 3 stars.

Wish I wouldn’t have started

What a controlling evil a hole! He is very mean and no love towards her at all. It’s a trilogy and only from audible so after skipping I don’t know how many chapters (I didn’t miss much but her abuse I’m sure) I wanted to see if Saint would love her in the second book. He’s changing but it’s very little and I don’t like how he’s so physically abusive and domineering. Good thing she has some strength to her but I also need to comment on the male narrator. I’ve only listened to him do Scottish accents and it almost ruined the series for me. I think he does better with this accent but tends to get overexcited at times. Just an asshole overall.
