Review: His Sinful Touch (The Mad Morelands #5) by Candace Camp

Print Length: 384 pages

From A lost identity. A dangerous mystery. And a deep love that can conquer it all.

When a mysterious gentleman arrives on his doorstep, Alexander Moreland is astonished to discover that the stranger is not a gentleman at all, but a beautiful young woman disguised as a man, and in great need of assistance. The woman remembers nothing except her own name, Sabrina, and has only the contents of her pockets as clues to her identity: a handkerchief, a pocket watch, a leather pouch, a torn scrap of paper and a gold ring.

Sabrina is certain that she is on the run from someone, or something—how else to explain the bruises on her face and the pervasive sense of dread she feels? She’s also certain that she trusts Alex to help her, and she can’t deny the sparks that fly between them. As they race through the English countryside, Sabrina and Alex must solve the mystery of Sabrina’s past—before whatever she’s running from catches up to them.


My Rating: 4 stars out of 5

Let me begin by saying that when I saw this story listed next to Mesmerized (The Mad Morelands #1), I had assumed this was book number two. However, it is actually book number five in the series. And while I didn't have any trouble understanding the story, having read the first I do feel as though I missed out on quite a bit of story between the secondary characters (the other Morelands). This wasn't really a problem for me however, as I was still able to enjoy this novel. 

This is also the second novel I have read recently in which the Heroine has lost her memory. Thankfully, it was done in a vastly different way than the other book I have read which only made this story more enjoyable. 

Now, speaking just to this story, I loved it! I enjoyed watching Alex and Sabrina build first a friendship, and then a romance. As I've noticed with this author, all of her characters from the main, down to the secondary, each are well fleshed out and multi-dimensional. The story will just draw you in and keep you reading until the very end.
