Genre: Dark

Sinclair Vinemont, an impeccable parish prosecutor, conducts his duties the same way he conducts his life–every move calculated, every outcome assured. When he sees something he wants, he takes it. When he finds a hint of weakness, he capitalizes. But what happens when he sees Stella Rousseau for the very first time? 

Sinclair is a prologue to The Acquisition Series and is told entirely from Sinclair Vinemont’s point of view. It can be read in one sitting.


It’s been a couple of years since I read the Acquisition series. I remember getting this during the time I was reading the series, but I have since forgotten I had it. Well this past week I decide to make my Kindle sort by Author instead of recent. I plan on reading it from A-Z unless I read a series I want to continue and need to get the rest of the books.

So this was second on the top with a book I just DNF. I knew it would help break me out of a funk, because I have always loved Celia Aaron’s writing. Even though this is short, it would help kick my brain into gear.

Her hateful gaze scorched me like a firebrand, and I wanted the burn.

Sinclair and Stella were one of the couples that helped me accept that I love dark romances and I don’t care what people think. So to go into when Sin first saw Stella before Counsellor opens up more of the dark side.

The story fills in on when Sin first sees Stella and when he starts harassing her father which we catch the tail end in the first book.

I can’t believe I forgot how dark this went. Reading this made me remember the plot and what happened during the series. I did forget completely about the youngest brother. I also forgot how detached Sin was in the beginning before he fell for Stella. How he looked on people lower than him. But that was all his mother.

I thought for a little bit that I should reread this series, but after reading this I think I will give a reread a pass.
