A New York Times bestseller, Ultimate Sins is the final book in the sexy, suspenseful Callahan series from Lora Leigh.

Three men, bound by blood, will stop at nothing to protect the women who have stolen their hearts and who they have claimed as their own-no matter what the price.

Ex-Marine Crowe Callahan has only had one obsession in life: Amelia Sorenson. She is the only one who has ever gotten under his skin. However, she is also the daughter of his family's sworn enemy: a man who has sought to destroy the Callahans for generations in order to further his own nefarious agenda.

When Amelia put herself on Crowe's side and in Crowe's bed, she became her father's enemy as well. When Wayne Sorenson escapes capture, both Amelia and Crowe know it is only a matter of time before he resurfaces to exact his revenge. Now Crowe will claim Amelia in order to bait a killer and end things once and for all. But can he protect the woman he can't seem to live without from one of the deadliest enemies he has ever known? And will he survive if he can't? in Ultimate Sins.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3.75 stars-suspense, romance, sex and love 3.75 stars--ULTIMATE SINS is the fourth and final instalment in Lora Leigh’s contemporary, adult The Callahans erotic romance series focusing on the Callahan Family. This is ex marine Crowe Callahan and Amelia Sorenson’s storyline that sees retribution and revenge against a serial killer that has targeted everyone the Callahans have ever loved. ULTIMATE SINS sees the culmination of one man’s vendetta against a town and a family he believes owes him everything. Because ULTIMATE SINS is the final instalment of the Callahan ARC I would suggest reading in order for easier understanding and consistency. Told from several close personal third person points of view including memories and present day premise, the storyline covers approximately seven years-seven long years that saw Crowe Callahan walk away from the only woman he ever loved leaving her unprotected from a violent and psychotic man who is determined to destroy an entire town. While Crowe was sent away on assignment with the special ops forces, Amelia was left behind to endure humiliation, abuse and torture but what Crowe never realized is that Amelia did everything to protect the people that she loved. The timeline skips ahead a number of times and what happens during those seven years is important and imparted to the reader when and where necessary. Crowe is a hardened ex-marine whose personality was less than welcoming. As a controlling, over protective male Crowe is the epitome of alpha marine and a man who would do anything-including murder- to protect the woman that he loves. Amelia is a woman whose life has been shattered by one man-a man so close that betrayal is considered tame for the sins he has committed against the people of the small town she loves. But Amelia is also a woman, who knows her life is in danger but continues to put herself at risk at every opportunity. She refuses to be held prisoner in her own home even though it is probably the only way to protect her from the evil that has promised retribution and revenge. The relationship is a second chance at love for two people who have never stopped loving one another. As the Callahan family find themself and everyone they love the victims of a deranged serial killer, Crowe and his cousins begin to unravel the truth behind a psychotic mind. With the help of an anonymous source, the identity of the murderer known as the Slasher will become readily apparent and all too familiar. As per Lora Leigh’s style of writing, the sex scenes are numerous, graphic and hot. Nothing is off limits between consenting adults and Lora Leigh punches up the sex with graphic language and visual imagery. There are some sex scenes of questionable consent. The secondary characters include the Callahan cousins, law enforcement, friends, spiteful townsfolk and a psychopath set on revenge and death. As with the end of any series arc there is the introduction and hint at what is to come and Rory may be getting his storyline next. ULTIMATE SINS is a story of suspense, romance, sex and love. Lora Leigh’s imagination knows no boundaries and she takes the reader along for a roller coaster ride towards the final reveal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultimate SIns In order to bait a killer and end things once and for all, ex-Marine, Crowe Callahan will claim Amelia and now he will have to protect the woman he can?t seem to life without from the deadliest enemies he has ever known in this thrilling romantic suspense. This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on the edge of their seat with lots of suspense, drama and romance. The well written scenes and details inspire vivid images that capture the imagination and the well orchestrated suspense and drama draw the reader deep into the story. The strong compelling characters grab the reader?s attention, are easily related to and ensure that the reader reads every last word. Amelia has loved Crowe forever and she has sacrificed a lot to keep him safe and so has Crowe to keep Amelia safe. There is no denying their attraction to each other and the fiery inferno of passion that consumes them with frequent scorching hot sex , but to have a relationship they not only will have to overcome Amelia?s father, they will have to overcome emotional turmoil that has resulted from years of torment for both of them. Amelia captures the heart with a strength of character that the reader can?t help but to admire and well Crowe may handle things his own way but he has valid reasons. Spine tingling tension builds as the danger escalates, secrets are revealed, and emotions flare out of control keeping the reader totally caught up in the drama and excitement. I really enjoyed The Callahans? stories from beginning to end and while they could be read as stand-alone books I highly recommend that they are read in order to get the full impact of the situation and the motivation of the characters. I am also hoping that some of the other characters in their stories will one day have their own stories as well maybe in a Brute Force Securities series?.???
