Lust (The Sins and The Virtues #1) by Charlotte Featherstone

Lust (The Sins and The Virtues #1)
by Charlotte Featherstone
Paperback, 368 pages

This book was hot and steamy! Intriguing from the start and well written. The beginning plot is nicely delivered. By page 20 you'll be completely consumed in what is unfolding. I especially liked the few Irish/Scottish dialect thrown in. the description of the book and series itself is quite fascinating. Two faery courts, the Seelie and Unseelie. questions the goodness inside of the Seelie. readers will soon find themselves questioning whether the Seelie is truly the bad guy and the Unseelie, the good. it's not your typical Paranormal Romance and may not be everyone's cup of tea. The book is primarily concerned with desires, internal struggles, and inner-character. One can expect a lot of description and mental-musing. The thrills and chills typically derived from high-octane action stories simply isn't here for the most part. It doesn't provide a lot of sex in this book but shares quite a lot sensuality. There was one sexual scene that contained a action & a climax and it was great. the whole concept of the Seven Sins and Seven Virtues...Amazing, to say the very least. The bad and the good fey. The pure ones and the tainted ones. Caught in the middle are the virtues and good and bad fey are doing everything in order to get them. What we end up with is a cast of interesting characters running in and out of each other's lives with dangerous plot twist, secrets and agendas. But overall a great read, this is a new author to me and I am looking forward to Rinion’s, Vanity, novel next in the series.

My Rating: 3 Stars!



Of old, humans and Faeries have dwelt side by side in parallel realms. Only the canniest mortals recognize the alluring creatures that often walk—and lie—among them.

The righteous Fae of the Seelie Court cherish an ancient quarrel with their Dark counterparts: a curse born of anger and deceit. The Unseelie Court will perish unless one of its princes can win a woman's love—honestly, without coercion…and love her wholly in return.
To halt the slow demise of his people, Prince Thane—the embodiment of Lust—infiltrates the Georgian court to seduce his mortal inverse. Noblewoman Chastity Lennox is purity incarnate—a sensual prize well worth winning. But Thane's carnal quest proves more challenging than he ever dreamed.
No other has ever been able—or willing—to resist his erotic charms. Chastity's resolve is maddening…and intriguing. It makes him want her all the more. But how best to seduce one who truly seems above temptation? Discover her greatest weakness and become the intoxicating essence of her deepest, most forbidden desires….
