Publisher's Summary

A Pure Gold Selection, now newly repackaged

New York Times best-selling author Nora Roberts serves up a sizzling novel of explosive suspense and sensual romance as the search for a murderer ignites passion between a beautiful psychiatrist and the sexy, brooding detective determined to crack the case.

In the unbearable heat of another sultry Washington, DC, summer, a serial killer is on the loose. Dr. Tess Court, one of the capital's most successful psychiatrists, wants nothing to do with the case - until the police convince her to lend a hand to the lead investigator, legendary ladies' man Detective Ben Paris.

Scarred by his family's history, Ben has even less use for shrinks than Tess has for him - but the forces of animal magnetism and a shared desire to catch the demented criminal known as "The Priest" inexorably erode the walls they've built. They're opposites in so many ways, yet that seems only to fan the flames of attraction for which danger has supplied the spark. To stop a killer who thinks he can absolve sins through murder, Ben will need every ounce of psychological insight Tess can offer him. And she'll need the help of a lawman willing to stare fear in the face if she's going to avoid becoming the madman's next victim.

Great book

I had to stay in my car at lunch to finish this one! It is very fast pace and you can't guess the ending. I have read some other Nora Roberts book and enjoyed them, but this one was a great listen.

It's Great!

If you've never read Nora Roberts, you are in for a great treat! Her stories are exciting romantic suspense. This one is a great mystery. There is serial killed in the DC area and he is targetting young, blonde women. Dr. Tess Court is volunteered to the police by her grandfather, the Senator, to profile the killer. The thing is, Tess fits the victum profile very well. It's a great story with a love story as well. The recording is very good. The abridgement was done right with nothing important missing from the story.

Nora can do better

This was "okay." I love Nora Roberts so I enjoyed listening but you can tell this is some of her earily work. Characters not as well developed and some parts so unrealistic it made you want to fast forward. But overall I can't say it was bad. The reader has a great voice and does a good job with what she had.

Not Nora's best work

Sacred Sins great

I despise abridged works. BUT! When listening to Sacred Sins, even after reading the Kindle long edition, I was impressed. The abridgement is expertly done. One of Nora's best!

Okay book

I was a little disappointed in this book. The story line was a little cheesy. It’s not as good as most Nora Roberts books.

Well I didn't guess who the baddie was!

I listen to audio books at the gym, and this did the job of making the 20 minutes on the bike go by easily. A shame it isn't available unabridged - sometimes you can spot the cuts. The sound quality varied quite a lot - I download at 4, so it should be good, but it was a tad fuzzy at times. Well read, held the interest - a good way to occupy the mind for a few hours.

Disappointed

Unfortunately this audiobook has been abridged so badly that the storyline does not flow. Truly a rip-off.
