The Seven Deadly Sins are seven brothers and sisters originally from Scotland.  When their father banishes them to London to earn his respect and the family name, the siblings are at a loss.  Their father only gives them enough money to barely live on.  The oldest brother, Sterling Sinclair, the Marquess of Blackburn, finds a way to bring in more money: a fighting match.

In the middle of the fight, literally, steps Miss Isobel Carrington.  This begins Sterling’s attraction to the woman of bravery and loyalty.  Sterling sets up a bet – that he will marry Isobel by the end of the Season.  While the bet is the impetus of their courtship, the attraction between the two is real.

The Seven Deadly Sins series by Ms. Caskie is off to a great start with To Sin With a Stranger.  The siblings are a fun family and the characters all come alive on the page, as does the romance between Sterling and Isobel.  Well-paced and well-written, the series had definitely caught my attention and I will be looking forward to the next book.
