Someone had to make him pay...
Faith Rochambeau is horrified to learn she was conceived during a rape. She's determined to make her biological father, Victor Telemann, pay for his crimes. Using her computer skills to dig into his life, she searches for the powerful man's Achilles Heel and a way to extract retribution. She'll do whatever it takes to get a conviction, even it if means infiltrating his Fortune 500 company.
She fails to plan on falling in love with her father's smooth-talking stepson, Kent Telemann, who suspects she is a corporate spy. Faith is drawn to Kent, even though she's not sure she can trust him. If her heart is wrong, he can put her life in danger. Meanwhile, her father is playing a lethal game he's determined to win.
Sins of Her Father is a taunt suspense yarn filled with mystery, secret identities, and devious corporate employees. The story surrounds Faith Rochambeau, a young woman who learns that she is the product of rape and that her mother never confessed the crime. Determined to get justice for her mother, Faith embarks on a quest to gather evidence against her slimy, rich father and put him behind bars where he belongs. In the process, Faith meets Kent. He’s hot, smart, chivalrous, and sweeps Faith off her feet. There’s just one catch: unbeknownst to Faith, Kent is her biological father’s stepson, and is under the impression that Faith is a corporate spy out to destroy his family’s company.
I really liked Faith and Kent. As individuals, and as a romantic pairing. Each are playing a cat-and-mouse game to gain information they believe the other is hiding, and it was really exciting watching them play. Especially since there were obviously other players on the board that were playing, too. The book is written from the dual perspective of Faith and Kent, so readers learn right away if Faith can trust Kent. I kind of wished that the story was only told from her perspective so that I got the opportunity to figure out if Kent was trustworthy or not for myself. Instead, readers learn early on whether or not he’s a good guy.
Faith’s dirtbag father Victor is really slimy, and appears dangerous. I loved that aspect of the writing, because it upped the stakes of Faith’s investigation. I loved Victor’s story arc, and almost wished I could have learned more about him as a character. He made a great villain, and it would have been nice to see more of his villainy. However, I was happy with how he was used in the story.
Do I Recommend?
I recommend Sins of Her Father for anyone looking for a nice romantic, suspenseful story, or just a good read. If you’re looking for erotica or loads of sex, then you will be a tad disappointed. The focus of the story was mainly on the mystery of whether Kent was trustworthy, and if Victor was really the rapist Faith believed. While there are sex scenes, they’re more sweet than steamy. However, they fit the story at hand and weren’t just thrown in for gratuitous sex.
