Sacred Sins 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers
Sacred Sins (SS/BV, #1) 
 4 of 5 stars false 
Combining explosive suspense with sensual passion, Nora Roberts turns up the heat in this classic tale — the sizzling story of a man and woman on the trail of a demented killer, a search that will plunge them headlong into danger....

In the lazy days of summer, a merciless heat wave is the biggest story in Washington, D.C. But the weather is knocked off the front pages when a young woman is found strangled to death. A note left behind reads Her sins are forgiven her.

Two more victims soon follow, and suddenly every headline is devoted to the killer the press has dubbed “the Priest.” When the police ask top-notch psychiatrist Dr. Tess Court to help with their investigation, she comes up with a disturbing portrait of a twisted soul.

Detective Ben Paris doesn’t give a damn about the killer’s psyche. What he can’t easily dismiss is Tess. Tall, dark, and good-looking, Ben has a legendary reputation with women, but the coolly elegant Tess doesn’t react to him like other women he’s known — and he finds the challenge enticing.

Now, as the two are thrown together in a perilous quest to stop a serial killer, the flame of white-hot passion flares. But someone also has his eyes on the beautiful blond doctor ... and Ben can only pray that if the madman strikes, he'll be able to stop him before it’s too late...


  Ben is looking for a man who is killing women and leaving a religious calling card. The police department calls in Tess a local psychiatrist. Ben doesn’t like psychiatrist, he does have a thing for Tess though. While trying to find the killer, Ben and Tess begin a relationship. Bens prejudice towards psychiatrist and Tess belief that people can be helped are not the only problems that they have to deal with. The killer has decided that he wants Tess dead and Ben has no idea who he is. Tess is a strong beautiful woman and she really cares about her patients. Ben is a hot womanizing detective who doesn’t put anything before his job. They have problems in the beginning and Tess standing up to Ben was humorous. She made him look like an idiot without even trying. Ben was dedicated to his job, while he may be a jerk at times when he finally admits he loves Tess he is just as dedicated to her. There was some suspense and I was a little surprised at who the killer turned out to be. The characters were well developed and the story line was good. The writing itself was good as well; this book was a good easy read.
