    An excellent read

    An excellent end to the series. This brought the trilogy to an exciting head. As this is written to overlap with the other two books in an entwined story covering three (four) couples, there are moments of clarity that you only get when all three books are put together. I was worried about how KJ would bring this to a close and still get these guys a HEA, but I needn't have worried. The outcome was perfect for all concerned. I'm sad that these books have come to an end but I have all 3 audios and I'll be listening to each and every one of these time and time again.

    A wonderful, suspenseful, conclusion to this serie

    An Unsuitable Heir is the 3rd book in the Sins of the City series and it brings the underlying story arc to a very satisfying conclusion. Book 1 in this series was a bit of a struggle for me but I loved book 2 and devoured book 3. Each of the first two books had satisfying conclusions for the couples featured in those stories but the mystery behind the series wasn't concluded until this book. While you could read An Unsuitable Heir without reading the first two – Ms. Charles does an excellent job of reminding us of what we need to know from the prior books – I think you might enjoy it more if you read the others first. And, if you haven't read the others yet you will have the wonderful experience of reading all three books straight through without having to wait in between like I did. 😊 Mark Braglewicz has been hunting for the missing heir to the earldom of Moreton and he finally finds him performing as a trapeze artist, along with his twin sister. Pen Starling wants nothing to do with being an Earl. After he and Mark make a romantic connection he wants to be left alone to live his life without the public scrutiny that would come with being an Earl. I loved this story and it kept me on the edge of my seat nearly the entire time I was reading it. I had no idea throughout this series who would end up being the bad guy. How it all played out in this book was just brilliant writing on the part of Ms. Charles. It was fun to get to visit again with characters from the first two stories and I loved how some of them were integral to the solving of the mystery. Sins of the Cities was a well-crafted trilogy and I will certainly be reading more books by K.J. Charles. A review copy was provided by the publisher via NetGalley but this did not influence my opinion or rating of the book. ***Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions***

    Good ending to this dark series

    This is the third installment of the series. I found this one a bit hard to get into to start, but once it got going, I enjoyed it. Mark has been in all the stories, and he is the focus of this one. He has found the heir, Pen, and falls in love. Their relationship is different than most but it brings out the best in both of them. Pen is sweet and wishes to go unnoticed. He tries to keep up a brave face when doing things he would rather not, but his heart is almost always apparent. The series has a lot of darkness to it but is balanced out by the HEAs of these M/M pairs. I received a copy of this story through Netgalley, and this is my unsolicited review.

    excellent read

    Pen Starling one half of a trapeze couple, was repentance Godfrey and his sister Was Greta Starling, also Regret Godfrey was the other half. They were very good at the trapeze. Mark Braglewicz is private enquiry agent and only has one arm and he has found the Godfrey's.. This is a mystery and an unusual one but a very good one. I have never read this author before but I would not mind reading another. I thought the author handled the sexuality extremely well, I found nothing offensive about it But there is some sex. The story is well written, it moves smoothly, and is easy to read. The characters are amazing and appear true to life, the dialogue is well written . The plot has some interesting twists and turns and you are kept guessing until the end. I loved the interaction between Pen and Mark, and how they not only respected each other but cared a lot about each other. superb mystery, great cast of characters and a surprise ending. I received this ARC from Net Galley and voluntarily reviewed it.

    Great romance

    I loved the Sins of the Cities trilogy by K.C. Charles. It took one of my favorite eras, Victorian England, and spun two M/M romances out of it. Now, mention that I said two M/M romances. I say that because Pen is nonbinary/identifies as a woman. So I wouldn’t classify An Unsuitable Heir as an M/M romance. Actually, I don’t know what I would label it. If any of you could please let me know what I could label this book. I will amend the review with the correct terminology. An Unsuitable Heir’s plot was pretty straightforward. Mark is an enquiry agent and is hired by Clem and Nathaniel to find the true heir to Clem’s brother’s earldom. Mark’s detective skills track down Repentance (Pen) and Regret (Greta) Starling. Pen and Greta are trapeze artists and are content to stay that way. That is until Mark forces Pen to do what he never wanted to do…become the earl. There is also danger involved. The killer who has haunted An Unseen Attraction and An Unnatural Vice has made himself known.He has Pen in his crosshairs. An Unnatural Vice was a romance. What Mark and Pen felt for each other came off the pages in waves. Even when Pen was very upset with Mark, you could tell the depth of their feelings. Pen loved Mark for who he was and Mark loved Pen for who he was. It was beautiful to read. The LGBTQIA aspect of the book was very interesting too. Pen is nonbinary and I thought the author did a great job of portraying a nonbinary person in the Victorian Era. I liked Mark. I felt bad that he felt that his disability would even interfere in his and Pen’s relationship. I also felt awful when he dragged Pen to that meeting against his will. He was doing it for Greta and Pen’s own good. Not that Pen understood at first. I felt so bad for Pen. I couldn’t imagine going to sleep and waking up in a body that I didn’t feel at home in. He knew he was a girl but every time he looked in a mirror, he saw a man. It must have been so hard for him. The era he lived in, Victorian, was not known for their understanding of homosexuality. People were arrested and could potentially be thrown in jail if it was found out that they were gay, lesbian or trans. Pen was terrified of being in public because he knew how he dressed and acted would not be accepted. Which is why he didn’t want to be an earl. He didn’t want all that attention on him. When Mark forced his hand at the earldom, it was his worst fears come true. Pen and Mark didn’t have real intercourse until the end of the book. But the sexual interactions that they did have were very hot!! I was pretty surprised at who the killer was. It was the last person I thought it would be (isn’t that always the case….lol). All the other storylines were wrapped up in a very satisfactory way. I am sad that this series has come to an end. I can’t wait to read more books by K.C. Charles. 4 stars My Summary of An Unsuitable Heir: An Unsuitable Heir is a wonderful romance. I loved that the author chose to write about a nonbinary person in Victorian times. This book is definitely worth the read and I would recommend it!! **I chose to leave this review after reading an advance reader copy**
