The twisted and intriguing storytelling that you loved in Consequences and Infidelity is coming back at you with an all-new alpha anti-hero in the dark romance series Web of Sin, by New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.

I’m Sterling Sparrow. You’ve no doubt heard my name or read it on the top of tall buildings. There’s more to my business—my realm—than what is seen above ground.

Within the underbelly of one of America’s largest cities lives a world where a man’s word is either his most valuable tool or his most respected weapon. When my father ruled that world and that city, he promised me someone who would one day make my reign complete.

Since that day, long ago, Araneae McCrie has been mine.

She just didn’t know.

My father is now gone.

The city and the underbelly are now mine.

The time has come for me to collect who was promised to me, to shred her life of secrets, and make her who she’s always been—mine.

Secrets is book one of the Web of Sin trilogy.

So I’ve been reading quite a few dark romances the last couple of days and these amazing books reminded me why I love this genre!

It’s not very ideal that this book is a trilogy but I couldn’t resist this plot!! I loved everything about it 😍

We don’t really get to see the dark side of Sterling that much in this book. He tries to be patient with Araneae since she didn’t have all this years to accept this arrangement. His ways are not the best; he uses blackmail to keep her in check and treats her like a prisoner than her fiancée.

The book is amazing and I have a feeling that’ll get even better in the second and third one!! Aleatha keeps these characters’ secrets hidden deep and I can’t wait to unravel them 😉
