This was just an ok read for me. The prose was readable, the heroine likeable, but the hero kept pushing her away because he thought he wasn't good enough, or she was too young, or... something. I wasn't sure why she bothered chasing after him in the end. None of it was very believable, and I found myself losing interest. Added to which, I'm normally not a big fan of books featuring babies - though the stepback for One Little Sin is definitely fodder for some clever captioning. Sorcha, the baby, wasn't too annoying fortunately - she's gone from the story about half way through, and when she does make an appearance, she's mostly just a Hallmark prop so we can see how cute and responsible the hero becomes under the ennobling influence of the helpless. Not to mention, we're told Sorcha is the hero's daughter and half sister to the heroine. Work out that oedipal?/incestuous?/flat out skeevy triangle if you want, but I'd rather not even think about it. Other than that, it was mostly the adults behaving childishly that tested my patience, along with the erratic plot - long lost aunts and uncles and babies popping up all over the place (I exaggerate only slightly.) The set up for the next book in the series seems interesting though, so I will persevere. ( )

Although it's not a bad read, it lacked a certain amount of sense of time, it could have been set anywhere between regency and victorian.
Sir Alasdair MacLachlan is a rake, a womaniser and unrepantant, when Esmee Hamilton turns up at his door with a daughter, Sorcha, whom she claims is his daughter from a laison with her mother he has to fae up this responsibility. He hires Esmee to care for Sorcha and finds himself attracted to her. The question is whether or not he can overcome his reputation and whether or not he wants to. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743496108, Mass Market Paperback)

National bestselling author Liz Carlyle presents her most tempting romance to date -- a sinfully sensual tug-of-war between heavenly desires and earthly delights....

He was a scoundrel, a scamp, and a hopeless skirt-chaser. So it shouldn't have been so surprising when Sir Alasdair awoke after a night of debauchery to see a young lass on his doorstep...with a baby in her arms.

She was beautiful, brazen, and utterly bankrupt. So it shouldn't have been so shocking when Miss Hamilton accepted the rogue's scandalous proposal to move in with him...and become the baby's governess.

One little sin brought them together. But when one man's wicked charms are matched by one woman's fiery spirit, one little sin can lead to another...and another...and another....
