Publisher's Summary

Lord, help me.... 

A beautiful, young American girl wound up stranded far from home on my doorstep.
When she begged me to stay, I did what a good priest would do, and I said yes. 

But a good priest wouldn’t spend his days thinking about the fullness of her ruby red lips or feel the sting of envy with the way she draws men to her like flies to honey. 

A good priest would have stopped things before that first touch. And he certainly wouldn’t have given into temptation so easily, but when Cadence Thorn walked in, she brought me to my knees. 

A good priest takes his vows seriously.
But I am not a good priest. 

**Beautiful Sinner is a stand-alone, HEA romance appropriate for 18+ listeners.

Not for me. 🤷🏻‍♀️

This story wasn’t my favorite mostly because of Cadence’s character. It’s hard to explain because I don’t want to give away any spoilers but, I thought she was pushy and selfish and definitely had relationship issues. I didn’t have any problems with the “forbidden” relationship, it was more like how she threw herself at him after “the love of her life” (who she’d known for all of 4 days) just screwed her over for everything she had. Even more so after she knew he was a priest. I found myself hoping he’d keep his vows to God and direct her to get some counseling. The narration in general was pretty good but aside from a few choice words with a slight Irish accent, It never felt like they were actually in Ireland to me.

Beautiful Sinner – Cadence and Father Callum

This book was a very nice surprise. It was very good. On a European vacation, Cadence meets other Americans, Clint and his friends, and she travels to Ennis Beach, Ireland with them in a car she rented. Clint tricked her into paying for two rooms at a B&B. Unfortunately, they went to a pub and Clint either got her drunk or drugged her. Luckily Father Callum walked her back to her room (she thought Clint walked her back). Clint ended up taking everything from her including passport, credit cards, cash, phone, etc. as well as the car before she woke up. Callum and his sister Bridget own the B&B. Cadence is hired to work there and ends up working closely with Callum. Business picks up at the B&B because of reviews about Cadence. She ends up having s&x with another one of the guests, which Callum heard. Slowly Cadence and Callum become close but because he is a priest, he tries not to take it further, which was not possible especially when he realized he loved her. Father Callum did have a life before becoming a priest. He was back and forth about making the decision to quit the priesthood. The ending was great and had a wonderful epilogue. In the end, things work about for both of them. There should be another book so we can catch up with them. This was a very enjoyable book that kept my attention throughout. I would highly recommend it. I received this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Brilliant Story & Listen🎧Wonderfully Enthralling!

Sara Cate creates another amazing novel, an age-gap forbidden taboo type romance. Like her other books it is well written and well told, the story grabs your attention right from the start and captivates it straight to the end. The characters are realistic and complex, they are easy to relate to and connect with. Cadence Thorn, a 24 year old American from L.A. was touring Europe with a bunch of Americans, she met Clint on the tour who convinced her to go rogue and off on their own with a few of his friends. After checking into a B&B in Ireland they are off to the pub, the next thing she is aware of is waking up in the B&B alone, Clint and his friends are gone, so is the car, her bags, money, credit cards and ID passport. She has been scammed, thankfully Bridget from the B&B is kind and understanding and helps her, Cadence is not too thrilled with the male at the B&B who turns out to be her brother Callum, he is not as friendly as his sister and we soon learn why. Bridget is widowed and is running the B&B on her own, Callum is the Priest of the local parish helps her when he can. When Cadence learns they are hiring she wants the job, Bridget is pleased but Callum does not think she can do the job but agrees to hire her on a trial basis. Cadence is determined to prove him wrong. OMG, those two, the air between them is electrified as is their chemistry. She winds up surprising him, proving herself, she also turns in to a temptation for him, one he fights and then he starts to question is faith and why he chose it. The character growth in this book is remarkable, the story takes you on an emotional rollercoaster ride and is beautifully plotted with drama, angst, heartfelt moments and a slow burn, romance. Sara Cate, thank you for another awesome story.

🎧📚🎧 And for the wonderful narration, Auri Aiden and Stephen Borne are talented narrators and voice artists. They did an awesome job bringing the characters to life, giving each their own voice and personality. Their portrayal of the each character was spot on, sounding just as I picture them to sound. I loved how they took each role and made it their own, fabulous Irish accent and all. They set the perfect tone for the story, captured all of the characters emotions and projected them into their performance. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for the awesome listen🎧

Intense, and steamy!

This is my second time reading/listening to anything form this author, and I really liked this book. This is the story of Callum, and Cadance. When Cadance ends up stranded, at the families B&B, and crossed paths with Callum, sparks fly. This is a great read, the characters are well written, and have hot chemistry. This is emotional, raw, intense, steamy, passionate, captivating and dramatic.

Beautiful story!

This beautifully written book was so wonderful to read and the audio made it even better. The narrators did a fantastic job. The accents were so sexy. Cadence is a young woman, bouncing around in life never finding her purpose until she finds herself stranded in a little Irish bed and breakfast. She meets Callum and a forbidden love is ignited. Callum thinks he knows what his purpose in life is until he begins to feel something for Cadence. This couple find themselves in each other. I really enjoyed this book and highly recommended this read and listen.

Beautifully written!

The author did an amazing job creating interesting characters that are captivating. The story flows at a slow but great pace. I felt like I was part of the story and feeling everything the characters were feeling.

If you enjoy a slow burn romance, forbidden/Taboo romance, age gap romance, and lots of ups and downs, you will love this book. It was a rollercoaster ride of emotions.

Beautifully written and executed! I loved the narration and how well the characters were brought to life. It was the icing on the cake.

This audiobook was hard to put down. The chemistry was intense and it was so well written. Lots of emotions and angst that wrap up in an amazing conclusion with an much deserved HEA. I love when Authors give us a sneak peek at their future life together at the conclusion.

✔️A LOT OF ANGST
THEN THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU!

Narrated by Audi Alden and Stephen Borne, Beautiful Sinner by Sara Cate is now available on audio.

Beautiful Sinner hold a special place in my heart. This was the first novel I read written by Sara Cate and I immediately became a fan. Her book are the type of books you will find yourself reading/listening to over and over. I have not come across one of her characters who isn’t memorable. They are all so beautifully flawed and broken; perfectly imperfect.

While the book itself is fantastic, the audiobook was magnificent. Listening to this book was a different experience making me feel as if I was reading this book for the first time. The narrators did an extraordinary job giving Callum and Cadence a voice, bringing them to life, and making me feel every single emotion. The pull between Callum and Cadence was unavoidable; the temptation was powerful; the chemistry electrifying. Putting a voice to Callum and Cadence was captivating and consuming. I absolutely LOVED this audiobook and I know without a doubt that it is going to be one of my most listen to audiobook.

I loved it

I loved everything about this taboo steamy romance. It was very well written and showcased just how screwed up both the priest Callum and love interest Cadence are in their own ways. Their lives are multilayered. You want to dislike Cadence for what she does and how flippant she is with her life and her body, but then the author lets you into the reasons why she acts the way she does. The same with Callum, you want to hate him for the selfish choices he makes but then you find out that his life was in disarray early on, leading him to seek structure and guidance, possibly in the wrong places. This kept him locked in a system where it was difficult for him to accept change and make choices. Both end up being great characters in a realistic story that had me laughing a number of times too. Auri sounded like she struggled a bit with the male voices where she got a bit croaky, but overall I really enjoyed this book.

I was given a copy of this book for free of my own choosing and have voluntarily left this review.

Taboo in all the good ways😉

This is a wonderful glimpse into what it might be like for a priest who falls for a much younger spirited woman. Hold onto your socks because this is a steamy romance with tons of passion and spirit.

Cadence finds herself duped from her so called new friends that she meets while on a European tour. She starts off as a very naive girl and turns into a spirited woman who goes after what she wants and doesn’t let herself be beaten down after being stranded at the B&B where it all begins.

Callum is broody and handsome and bossy as hell and holy cow a PRIEST. Plus he’s Irish. How is Cadence supposed to ignore that! She doesn’t and boyyo it get hot! Steamy scenes where you think OMG if they get caught! Wonderful ending!

Sara Cate writes believable characters who will steal your heart with situations that carry you along reading/hearing for a HEA and wraps your mind into what it would be like.

The narrators were really nicely matched and had me thinking yes I want to visit this little Irish town. Both are new narrators for me and hopefully I hear them again soon. Auri Alden was realistic for Cadence and brings an emotional performance of a spirited young woman who goes after what she wants. Stephen Borne has a wonderfully deep voice that was so believable for a brooding sole whose providence is tested over and over again.

Deliciously taboo

What happens when you are in another country and your one night stand leaves you high and dry with nothing but the clothes on your back? Cadence finds herself in Ireland at a bed and breakfast, and comes to terms that she needs to straighten out her life. Finding her place in the B&B, she finds that working there is very rewarding and the camaraderie is exactly what she needs. All but one. Father Callum is not very supportive of his new employee. But it's not her work ethic. Or her performance. Or her age. But the sheer fact that he is attracted to her. Where will this attraction take them? A taboo romance of age gaps and religion, this very steamy and delicious story had me from the first chapter. I love the setting, and Sara Cate is wonderful at giving us the beautiful imagery of Ireland. The couple is challenged, and I love that it's not easy. It makes their story that much more exciting. It's another well written romance that makes you think and makes you love. The best kind in my opinion!

Auri Alden and Stephen Borne narrate this gem and they are spot on with their performance. Alden has the perfect sound for Cadence. She is young, a little bratty, a little jaded but ready to change and it's all in the inflections Alden uses. Borne is incredible as Callum. This is a very complex character and you can feel his turmoil and struggle with who he is, but you can also feel the love he has. This team is well cast and a pleasure to listen to.

Forbidden Love

I really enjoyed these forbidden romance story and I felt like it was very realistic to what I would imagine temptation and human attraction would be in a forbidden situation.

I have read Priest by Sierra Simone, and I liked this one more. I would say that there is more hot scenes in Priest, but this one felt more real. They struggled with their lust/love for each other in a manor I could logically imagine would happen. I am so glad they for their HEA.

The narrator did an amazing job, I love the accents and voices that she use and the story felt so real because of it.

All the feels!!💚

This is the first audiobook I've embraced and i am a complete lover of Sara Cate's books!!

"𝓗𝓸𝔀 𝓶𝓾𝓬𝓱 𝓪𝓶 𝓲 𝔀𝓲𝓵𝓵𝓲𝓷𝓰 𝓽𝓸 𝓵𝓮𝓽 𝓵𝓸𝓿𝓮 𝓯𝓸𝓸𝓵 𝓶𝓮."

Oh my Lord, our heavenly father! Beautiful Sinner is everything & more!  A brooding Irish alpha priest meets Candence a stranded lost soul. These two lost souls will take you on one hell of a journey emotionally and damn i loved every second.

The dual voice overs for Cadence & Callum is beuatifully enticing! Callum voice is husky and deep giving you all the friggin feels. Cadence's voice is beautiful, fiesty when needed & breathtaking!

Callum and Cadence are just couple goals and there is some serious chemistry building but a fierceness to both of them has you feeling their emotions, feelings & draws you into their world.

I literally squealed and felt every drop of emotion and my heart clenched in pure pain & happiness for them throughout this book. Callum is SWOONWORTH & has my heart sumeraaulting!! 

"𝓞𝓾𝓽 𝓸𝓯 𝓪𝓵𝓵 𝓸𝓯 𝓖𝓸𝓭'𝓼 𝓬𝓻𝓮𝓪𝓽𝓲𝓸𝓷 𝓼𝓱𝓮 𝓲𝓼 𝓫𝔂 𝓯𝓪𝓻 𝓶𝔂 𝓯𝓪𝓿𝓸𝓾𝓻𝓲𝓽𝓮"

This ending is breathtakingly beautiful and i am so thankful to have recieved this an audio!!
