Sacred Sins, the stunning conclusion to the Sins Duet by New York Times bestselling author CD Reiss, is available NOW!



You know what they say about family.

Blood is thicker than water.

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

A house divided cannot stand.

Margie is the keeper of her family’s secrets.

Six sisters and one brother.

Billions in assets.

Generations of malfeasance.

And one heartbreaking secret kept by three people.


Her father, Declan.

And Drew—the man she loves.

You know what they say about secrets.

Three can keep them if two are Drazens.

There’s never been a Drazen who went down without a fight. And there’s never been one who didn’t fight for love.



Secret Sins (Sins Duet #1) opened up my eyes to a whole other side to Margie Drazen, and after the bombshell of an ending, I was dying to know what the future held for both Margie and her family. Sacred Sins was a captivating conclusion to this duet, revealing even more secrets about the complex and powerful Drazen family, that kept me holding my breath from the beginning to the very end!

‘You own yourself and everything around you. You were a princess. Now you’re a queen.’

In the first book of the duet, I was surprised to find the carefree spirit that was laying beneath Margie’s cold-hearted exterior, and I really enjoyed seeing her character evolve into a strong and independent woman in this story. I loved Margie’s sarcasm and wit, and the way she didn’t hold back or hesitate in confrontation with calling a spade a spade. There was also a softer side to her though that really got my heart, and just when I thought Margie might finally have her happily ever after with Drew, the rug was pulled out from underneath the both of us!

I was falling down a rabbit hole and only Drew could catch me. He was the North Star. The skies spun, but he was still and steady. The point of connection between myself and the rest of the world.’

Margie’s patience, acceptance, and loyalty to her family gives a whole new meaning to unconditional love, and she truly was the keeper of all the family’s cards. Margie was the quiet warrior always sacrificing and fighting to protect her family, but there were two cards, pieces of her heart actually, that she was always forced to keep at a distance. Where I understood that some of her secrets were too big to tell, it really killed me that she wouldn’t reveal one of them in particular. However, her father was a different story, and I was delighted to know that she found her ways in dealing with him in the end! *Insert evil laughter here*

CD Reiss did a brilliant job teasing me with truths and keeping me glued to the pages in hope for Margie’s happily ever after. Her complex writing taunts, tantalizes, and teases with my emotions. Of course, there was also suspense and angst, because that’s one of CD Reiss’s many amazing talents and honestly why I’m so drawn to her writing!

If you haven’t met the Drazens yet, you have to know in advance that this family is intense! They are a complex and dysfunctional cluster of crazy to the nth degree at times, but they love each other in their own ways. The siblings Jonathan, Theresa, and Fiona all have their own series offering super steamy, angsty, and suspenseful romances as well. This story also offers a lot more insight into Jonathan’s past, and since it’s been quite some time since I’ve read The Submission Series, I had to go back for a refresher looking to fill in some gaps. There are so many pieces to the complex Drazen family puzzle!

Sacred Sins was such an exciting conclusion to this Sins Duet and one of those books for me that I really wanted to skip to the end for the answers… BUT I’m not a cheater! It looks like the other sisters, Carrie and Leanne, will both be having stories coming next, and I’ll be looking forward to these as well!

“Drew?” I said into the darkness. “Indiana Andrew McCaffrey, stop fucking with me. I’m in no mood.”My eyes adjusted. I stepped farther in, letting my hand drift over the counter edge. They’d changed it to cheap flipper granite. The cabinets were presswood veneer. But still, I touched them as if they were original Douglas fir and my name was Cin.


His voice didn’t surprise me. I didn’t jump ten feet or stiffen with shock when I saw his silhouette against the doorframe. Hearing him was a relief. The binds keeping my shit together weren’t unknotted completely, but they loosened. I hadn’t felt tense in a long time because I was so used to being in a state of taut readiness.


His stage name came from my lips without a thought.

“I’m glad you came.”

Sixteen years, and he was glad I came. Fuck him.


CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

    1. Hmmm…they’re all so different and Margie’s story surprised me because of how boring she seemed from the other series. I think I would start with another. Fiona is pretty crazy in the head, and be warned of bondage and really any kind of trigger warning I could throw your way. It’s the first of her books I came upon, and it kind of wigged me out but it was so good. I liked Theresa’s because it has mafia in it. Jonathan’s is good too, but it’s a longer series and you need to read his and Margie’s around the same time. How’s that for long-winded? Lol! Be ready for the steam in these too- lighter in this series though.

  1. I LOVED the Song of Submission series! Jonathan was such a complex character. I never read the other siblings though. Thanks for the heads up that we get more of Jonathan’s past! I might actually pick this one up!

    Superb review, hon!
