This is not my first book by India Kells but I would have to say that this is one of my favorites. India Kells puts a lot of heart and soul into her characters. They are fully developed and have unique qualities. She gives them such personable personalities. Take Liam, he is a cop and he wants to make his father pay for wrongdoings. Now there is only one who can help him and that is Sister Catriona. You read that right Sister Catriona, as in a nun title. Sister Catrionais great at numbers and he feels like she can help him. Then something happens that changes Liam’s feelings for Sister Catriona. You will have to read the book to see what happens.
I started the book and quickly got distracted by kids…to be honest, I’m sad this happened. Restarted the story and it got me as soon as I had my full attention on it. It’s so good, I couldn’t put it down. Liam the cop and Catriona the little nun, you can immediately tell the attraction between the two and you won’t want to wait to see what happens. Add in Liam’s brothers and their girlfriends/families, the book just gets better and better. This book is great alone but I sure can’t wait to read about the rest of the brothers!
True Bastard is the 4th book in the Dark Sparrow Series and it is probably my favorite of the series. I have read a few books by this author and each one of her books that i read just keep getting better and better. This story is about Liam and Catriona Walsh. They were such awesome main charcters and so different than any characters I’ve read before. Their story intrigued me and I was pulled in from page one. This book was full of emotions, drama and danger. I couldn’t get enough. I am looking forward to reading more by this author and I would recommend this to a friend.
True Bastard (A Dark Sparrow Novel #4)by India Kells
5 out of 5 stars
True Bastard the fourth book in A Dark Sparrow series written by India Kells is amazing I have read all the books in this series so far and I think Liam and Catriona are my favorites. The characters are amazing and well written. I loved their banter and quirks. This book contains danger, suspense, and romance We even get to see what is going on with the other couples from the first three books.
This is the story about Liam.
Liam is a cop and has issues in the last few years he found and met his brothers got injured on the job luckily while he is recuperating e still is active on the most important case of his life and that’s to bring his father down.
Faced with the insurmountable task of going through his father’s financials, he is thrown a lifeline when a mutual friend sends novice nun Sister Catriona Walsh to help.
Catriona is good with numbers and Liam can really use her help. The first time Liam meets Catriona is an angel and he is really attractive to her but he needs to keep his distance. Catriona also feels attraction to Liam but he runs hot and cold.
Catriona is equally attractive to Liam but will she act on this attraction or will she still say her vows? Will Liam act on his attraction or will he walk away?
You will have to read this amazing story but I highly suggest you rea all the books in this series in order….
True Bastard (A Dark Sparrow Novel #4) by India Kells
Kells knows how to get attention with everything she writes. So far I’ve read all The Dark Sparrow Novels and I can’t wait for more. These characters will never be forgotten.
Liam, a cop and the fourth brother to Lazarus, is upset that they didn’t bring down their father. Gabrielle had to leave as an emergency came up, but she brought a gift. Someone to cut Finch’s money. The quote I chose for Liam is: “I never played you, in any way, Catriona. I’ve never liked deception. When I kissed you, it was because I couldn’t help myself. If Deva hadn’t barged in, things would’ve gone further than a kiss. I only stopped because I think you’re making a mistake.”
Catriona, very close to becoming a nun, is brought to Chicago to help a family out. With the eldest brother being in a coma she does what she can. When she uncovers something she runs, but she saves someone else. The quote I chose for Catriona is: “We’re on this earth to make mistakes. Do you think that’s the first time I’ve ever thought about being with a man, sleeping with one? When you choose a path, you have to relinquish several more. No one goes into a religious life without considering that, otherwise, the weight of the commitment would break you in two. I haven’t slept with anyone because each time I was convinced it was the wrong decision, until you.”
I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves a good read.
Wild Bastard (A Dark Sparrow Novel #3) by India Kells
The third book in A Dark Sparrow Novels. Kells has really upped her game from the first two books. Lazarus is at it again with helping one of the many half brothers and Kells captures it perfectly.
Isabel is the next Dark Sparrow to be called upon the favor. What she doesn’t realize when she agrees to the meeting is she’ll be running right into the past’s arms. Jones isn’t who she expected to see and it gets better. The quote I chose for Isabel is: “No pressure. Because all I want is you.”
Kai, Delta Force, goes to another meeting in hopes to bring down his father, Finch. What he’s not expecting is for the girl who broke his heart and got away is the one that’s helping. Things don’t go as planned and it scares him. The quote I chose for Kai is: “Are you still set on returning to work tomorrow?”
Romance, suspense, twisted lovers book is for you!
Cold Bastard (A Dark Sparrow Novel #2) by India Kells
This is the second book of A Dark Sparrow Novels. As the second book I’ve read by the author I can say I’ve enjoyed it. Kells knows how to capture a reader’s attention.
Zoe knows her languages and is requested by Beatrice for a favor. Keep an eye on one of Lazarus’s half brothers. Not sure what she’s getting herself into she goes. She finds herself going back to the past. The quote I chose for Zoe is: “You had love in your life, and even if you struggled and battled through some tough times, you had a choice to do something with it. Grabbing that power. I will never judge you for the decisions you made, that path on the dark side. I would have done the same thing. Hell, I’m doing it right now. At least love brought you back. You always have a choice, Archer. Never forget that.”
Archer Blackwood, moves from London to Chicago, a cold man needs someone who can translate languages for him. What he doesn’t know is his half brother is really looking out for him. Zoe has thawed the cold man a little. The quote I chose for Archer is: “Don’t put yourself in danger, do you hear me? Steer clear of Finch. You’re mine.”
Romance lovers this is one for you!
Lost Bastard (A Dark Sparrow #1) by India Kells
This is the first book in A Dark Sparrow Series. This is the first book I’ve read by the author, but it won’t be my last. Kells has really done a great job writing this.
Deva, a Dark Sparrow, goes to help Lazarus. He wants to watch his brothers and make sure he’s kept out of harm’s way. Little does Deva know that the brother is going to capture her heart. The quote I chose for Deva is: “I agree. And I couldn’t stop thinking about what Finch and my father had said. All those speeches about patience, about preparing for war. What if he was speaking about a war from within? What if Finch had prepared things way in advance, and placed his pawns in strategic places.”
Aleksei, Lazarus’s half brother, trains at the gym only to find his Angel there. He keeps her at arms length, but when he’s injured she’s the one to help him. Things get tough and he pushes her away. The quote I chose for Aleksei is: “You put yourself in danger! I told you to stay at the hotel under Lance and Kai’s protection, but you didn’t listen. You don’t listen! And now that I know you are safe, still breathing , still alive and whole…”
This is recommended for MC lovers and if course romance lovers.
True Bastard by India Kells is the fourth book in A Dark Sparrow Novel series. The series focuses on a different couple in each book. These can be read as standalone books, but I really have enjoyed reading them in order because they build upon each other. These books are fun and exciting to read. Liam and Catriona are fascinating to read about. The contrast between the two characters is so good and really made me enjoy their story even more. This story is not a straight romance but also contains action, thrills, and twists. I have enjoyed the books in this series as well as others by this author and this one did not disappoint. I look forward to reading more by India Kells in the future.
This was a great adventure from the first page. It is number 4 in the Dark Sparrow Series. I loved this story and was gripped from the very beginning.
Liam is one of the brothers who is on a mission to bring down his evil father. Along with his brothers they are looking for a way to destroy him before he destroys them. When Liam gets a hold of his fathers finances they need an expert to help them with it.
A mutual friend recommends a expert called Catriona. Catriona is a wizard with figures and can find a trail anywhere but what makes her different is she is training to become a nun.
When Liam and Catriona meet there is an instant spark but Liam doesn’t want her to turn her back on her path or force her to do that so he keeps his distance and pushes her away.
Can the angel and the man covered in sin be together? Can they work together to bring his father down or will they end up only destroying themselves.
