The Sinful King has been on my TBR for what seems like forever. I’ve been meaning to read it since it first released, but life happens and I kept pushing it aside. I actually read the novella first, which is Pillar’s story and I wanted to finally read the stories of her brothers, Elias and Aramis.
In The Sinful King, we have Elias’ story, the future king, his path is set. And one night with Adeline changes all of that. A woman he can’t really have or have a future with. But there’s something more between them, it’s undeniable, so how will they make it work?
From the royal romances that I’ve read, I’ve generally loved every single one of them. But this one really gives it all on the emotions. I was not expecting that at all and it might be one of the most emotional books I’ve read by Claire, well maybe after the Hearts series.
EVERYTHING between Maribella and Elias was there, the connection was so strong, but how would they get their happily ever after?! Gosh, it drove me nuts that they were always so close, but just not able to get what they both wanted. Elias is bound to his country, tradition and responsibilities. I loved that Adeline constantly challenged him, she knew the stakes, but she still fell so deeply for him. Not matter what anyone told her.
Gahhhh, I loved this story so much and now I’m going to re-read with the audiobook! I can’t wait until we get Aramis’ story.
