Seven Nights in a Rogue's Bed (Sons of Sin #1) by Anna Campbell

Will a week of seduction...

Desperate to save her sister's life, Sidonie Forsythe has agreed to submit herself to a terrible fate: Beyond the foreboding walls of Castle Craven, a notorious, hideously scarred scoundrel will take her virtue over the course of seven sinful nights. Yet instead of a monster, she encounters a man like no other. And during this week, she comes to care for Jonas Merrick in ways that defy all logic—even as a dark secret she carries threatens them both.

...Spark a lifetime of passionate surrender?

Ruthless loner Jonas knows exactly who he is. Should he forget, even for a moment, the curse he bears, a mere glance in the mirror serves as an agonizing reminder. So when the lovely Sidonie turns up on his doorstep, her seduction is an even more delicious prospect than he originally planned. But the hardened outcast is soon moved by her innocent beauty, sharp wit, and surprising courage. Now as dangerous enemies gather at the gate to destroy them, can their new, fragile love survive?

4.5/5 stars

 This isn't the typical historical romance, that's for sure which is a good thing. First off we have Jonas Merrick, who is described as not a very good looking man with scars on his face making him even uglier to the members of the ton. But they don't accept him anyway considering he was born a bastard. Then there's Sidonie, a lovely girl who gets caught up in her sister's gambling debt to Jonas. That's some sisterly love for you because I don't think I could've stepped in for a week of who-knows-what to cover debts with a man who is so feared.

I really liked the story and loved that it was a different take on the genre. There weren't that many characters, but the ones that were in the book were really great. We met two friends of Merrick's that were considered bastards also and I can't wait to see how their stories will play out. This was a great start to a new series that I definitely will be looking forward to reading.
