Death brings would-be country singer Tessa Owens home from Nashville to her native Ozarks. But she’s not planning to stay. She turned her back on the old ways of life in the modern world long ago. But she didn’t expect to meet her first love, Lucas Rowlands, at the visitation. Seven years wasn’t long enough to forget him and sparks ignite when they meet again. Even worse, Tessa learns Lucas isn’t the simple country farmer she left behind but the sin eater, an ancient position handed down to him from his grandfather. She still plans to make tracks back to Music City USA but when Lucas falls ill, Tessa can’t bear to leave. As she struggles to understand Lucas’ life and role as a sin eater, Tessa admits she loves him and there’s no doubt what he feels for her. But even if she’ll give up her country music dreams, there’s no way Tessa can become the sin eater’s wife, especially not when Lucas knows he won’t make old bones. The devil wants Lucas’ sin-heavy soul and if they don’t come up with something, Lucas is hell bound on an express ticket. If there’s any chance at a future, it’s up to Tessa.

Samantha's Review
Tessa moved away from home years ago and left behind the love of her life Lucas. She thought that the reason he pushed her away was because she wanted to move to Nashville. She did not know that he had just found out something that would change his life. Lucas was to take his Grandfathers place as the Sin Eater. Someone who takes away the sins of others after they had died so that they can go to Heaven instead of Hell. The Sin Eater then takes that persons sins unto himself. When Tessa's uncle dies she returns home and finds out what Lucas has become and when he gets sick she takes care of him and decides to stay because they both never got rid of their love for each other. But it seems the devil has a plan and wants Lucas now. Every time Lucas does a Sin Eating he comes closer to death. Lucas and Tessa now need to find a way to save Lucas and free him from the responsibility of being a Sin Eater. I love Tessa and Lucas's characters. Tessa's family and the rest of the town I could do without. They want him when the need him to Eat someone's sins but want nothing to do with him other than that. It is definitely a good story it was really easy to read.. There were a few editing issues it seemed. and in a couple places it seems like it might be missing a word or two. But the story is well written enough that you can pretty much fill in the blanks. It is definitely a good romance and I would recommend reading it. It was a book that I finished quickly because I really wanted to know what happened. :O)
