I found this portion of the book to be very slow and boring.

This is the main external conflict in the book, and it didn't work for me.

Family feuds have a way of destroying everything they touch. The one between the Huntington and St. Claire families is no different. Set in the late 1800's, Two Sinful Secrets is full of lust, action, suspense, devilish romance, and surreptitious pain. It pairs two unlikely foes against each other, but the tale starts as a masked encounter.

Lady Sophia is anything but a Lady. She wants freedom and doesn't live up to the Huntington ideals, no matter how hard she tries. At the young age of twenty-three she rushes off in a whirlwind romance with a young captain. Her family, facing scandal, disowns. Thinking herself in love, she quickly learned that all he cared for was between her thighs. Soon after the thrill's worn off, he dies, and she finds herself a widow and penniless.

Only a respectable marriage would allow her to return home. But Sophie doesn't want another husband to tie her down, and she's all but given up on the notion of love. Until Dominic St. Claire waltzes back into her life, but can they overcome the family feud and their secrets, and fall in love?

Dominic St. Claire is an actor, good at playing dark villains and weaving tales. More so, he's best at hiding his true emotions. With his fiancé deceased and a life to live, he throws himself into the theatre again. On a trip to Paris, he happens upon a woman he never expected to see again, one he spent years searching for to no avail. But when he learns of her family name, can he resist the urge to ruin the Huntington name, or will he open his heart to the woman who stole it all those years ago?

I cried a lot. I didn't want the story to end.

Here comes the second installment in Laurel McKee's Scandalous St. Claire's series.

We met Lady Sophia Huntington [now Mrs. Westman] as she `bites more than she can chew' in her first meeting with our hero Dominic St. Claire who owns the Devil's Fancy hell in London.

As her story opens, she's now a widow and residing in Baden-Baden, Germany. As she sits at a gaming table across from a man that is making her skin crawl, playing for very high stakes, we are apprised of the reasons behind her dire straits.

She was always pushing that proverbial envelope and eloping with her Captain Jack Westman, was the last straw for her ever `proper' family and now she's become a `persona non grata' to them. Now that she's been widowed, she harbors a wish to try and get back into their graces and dreams of being welcomed to their bosom by becoming more proper and worthy of their love. That dream requires a lot of money, which she can only earn by only means available to her and that's by playing cards across Europe and working her way toward England.

At present, she finds herself in Paris and helping a friend, Camille Martine, who is opening up a gaming club of her own and knows that Sophia would be a perfect woman to help her with it.

Dominic St. Clair is still weary and not a fan of the Huntington family even after his sister marries one of them. He still harbors bad feelings toward them and it all started with Mary St. Clair, who married John Huntington two hundred years ago.

He accompanies his theatrical family to Paris as they plan to put on a play and while there he is eager to use this time to work through some sad memories that have made him melancholy of late.

So, I got a chance to get Two Sinful Secrets by Laurel McKee.

I wanted to read this story:
1) The cover. If y'all don't know I'm a pink girl. Love the color pink and any other girly color you can find.
2) The story intrigued me. Seriously. Here's what I mean:

You have two people that should stay away from each, because there family hate each other. Some of you might think of Romeo & Juliet, but I actually think of the Hatfields and McCoys. Then again Romeo & Juliet might work because one family does work in theater.

In 1665 there was a young woman, by the name of Mary St. Clair and she ended up marrying John Huntington. Which brings the St. Clair and Huntington families together. However, her tale is a sad one, which tore the two families apart.

Jump ahead to 1847, we meet are heroine, Sophia Huntington Westman, trying to make another escape this time from the wicked Lord Hammond. Yes, he is charming and handsome, but there is something that doesn't sit well. Seriously, I got the heebie-jeebies from him and I'm just reading the book.

Anyways, Sophia makes her escape from Baden-Baden to Paris where she meets up with an old friend and starts working with her. Along the way, she meets a blast from her past, Dominic St. Clair. These two know that they should stay away from each other, but each of them is drawn to the other (like a moth to the light).

Throughout the book you have a sad undertone to the story. Sophia wants nothing more than to be accept for who she is, but her family doesn't understand her. Which leaves her to be lonely in so many ways. Being a niece of a Duke doesn't help the situation, especially when they expect her to be meek and biddable. Kind of hard when she has a free spirit that just wants to be free.
