From New York Times bestselling author Karina Halle comes DIRTY SOULS the much-anticipated, nail-biting conclusion to Black Hearts…

Violet McQueen has always been a sensitive soul. Troubled and misunderstood, she never realized her place in the world, nor her true potential…until she met Vicente Bernal.

From birth, Vicente Bernal has always known his place in the world – he’s been groomed to be a ruthless king. Yet for a man whose soul has become morally bankrupt, it’s only through Violet he’s realizing the worth of someone’s heart.

But at what cost?

With a deadly game set in motion taking them from the stark deserts of California to the steamy jungles of Mexico, Violet and Vicente’s forbidden relationship will be put to the test. Boundaries will be pushed, lines will be crossed and souls will get very, very dirty.

Because how do you choose between blood and love when both might get you killed?

NOTE: Dirty Souls is the second and FINAL book in the Sins Duet. You MUST read book #1, BLACK HEARTS, first before this one!


Dirty Souls is the continuation of Vicente and Violet’s forbidden love affair, and HOLY SHIT, what a ride!!

The first 40% or so was great, we got to join them on their journey to Palm Valley to escape their parents, Violet is still trying to come to terms with the secrets that have been kept from her all her life, and Vicente has no choice but to help the woman he has fallen madly in love with to find some answers about her past.

“For this beautiful slice in time, Vicente and I are the only things to exist.
Two broken and brave people sitting on the throne of the world.”

However, there is danger abound and although Vicente has vowed to protect Violet from anything and anyone, he clearly underestimated his father – Javier Bernal wants revenge and he is a man on a mission.

My heart was beating out of my chest for the second half of this book! So many OMG moments that had my jaw dropping, I was so excited to read on and find out what in holy hell was going to happen next. Just when I thought Halle had taken us to the extreme, there was another twist that I did not see coming.

Truly, this book was such a fantastic conclusion – my adrenaline was off the charts!

Top rec for lovers of dark and sexy reads.

Dirty Souls is a romantic suspense, and the second of a duet, told from dual POV. Black Hearts is part 1
