The provocative story before the story continues in the critically acclaimed and award-winning series The Original Sinners
For years, Kingsley Edge warned Eleanor the day would come when she, the mistress of a well-respected Catholic priest, would have to run. She always imagined if that day came, she'd be running with Søren. Instead, she's running from him.
Fearing Søren and Kingsley will use their power and influence to bring her back, Eleanor takes refuge at the one place the men in her life cannot follow. Behind the cloistered gates of the convent where her mother has taken orders, Eleanor hides from the man she loves and hates in equal measure.
With Eleanor gone, the lights have gone out in Kingsley's kingdom. When he learns the reason she left, he, too, turns his back on Søren and runs. On a beach in Haiti, Kingsley meets Juliette, the one woman who could save him from his sorrows. But only if he can save her first.
Eleanor can hide from Søren but she can't hide from her true nature. A virginal novice at the abbey sends Eleanor down a path of sexual awakening, but to follow this path means leaving her lover behind, a sacrifice Eleanor refuses to make.
The lure of the forbidden, the temptation to sin and the price of passion have never been higher, and Eleanor and Kingsley will have to pay it if they ever want to go home again.
Well, well, well!!! There’s finally a wedding happening and it’s the night before the big day! You’re in a castle full of men running around in kilts *happy sigh* … what do you do with yourself? You grab your two besties and you reminisce. SLUMBER PARTY!
Soren, Nora and Kingsley settle down for a night of pillow talk. Nora and Kingsley share about the time when both, Nora and Kingsley, left Soren. All three of them went their separate ways. During this heart-to-heart secrets are revealed about what happened during their time away from each other.
YEAR AWAY: Nora ran to her mother’s covenant and lived there with the nuns. Over the course of her time there she figured out her ‘true’ calling. And since this is Nora, who can’t go without sex, she carries on a relationship with another woman in the covenant. I’m not a reader of f/f and if you aren’t either don’t let that stop you from reading this book. The scenes of them intimately together are far and few between.
YEAR AWAY: Kingsley traveled the world with his final destination landing him Haiti’s. Haiti’s is where he meets Juliette. Their love story had me glued to the pages. I have never seen Kingsley so vulnerable as he was with Juliette. I know we’ve seen Juliette in the other books but we didn’t know much about her. In this book we learn how they meet and fall in love and let me tell you it’s an amazing story.
When the book begins we have our suspicions on who is getting married the next day but in true, Tiffany Reisz, form we don’t find out until the very end of the book who the lucky couple is. I have to say when the couple is revealed it made me squeal! Now, waiting for the final installment is going to have me in a tizzy. I’m not ready for the series to end but I really want to read the next book.
Did I mention Soren and Kingsley are in KILTS in this book?! *fanning myself*
