Every child likes a good faery tale and LUST is a tale quite
like no other. The Queen of the Seelie court cursed the sons
of the Unseelie King. Queen Aine has cursed him and his
court out of hated, spite, and the never ending need for
revenge. The King's sons have been cursed with the
seven dark sins. Each Prince has to find the answer to his
sin, a woman of virtue. This woman must come to the Prince
in his court willingly to break the curse. As the centuries
have passed the Seelie Queen has learned to capture the
virtues and use them for her own benefit. The Queen has
never lost a virtue, and never have the Unseelie learned how
to break the curse. A curse that has devastated their court
to the point of ruin.
Prince Thane has battled his own demons for a lifetime,
watching his people fall to ruin, and never knowing how to
break his curse. That has all changed...now Thane has found
his match. The virtuous Chastity, a woman as pure as he is
dark, as chaste has he is lustful, a perfect match in
every way. Now Thane must woo her to his side for the curse
can only be broken if Chastity chooses him over all that
she has ever known in her life. But how will Chastity ever
fall in love with Lust?
Chastity Lennox has known all her life that she is destined
for something more. All she has ever dreamed of is to be
loved, and to be in love with someone, anyone. But Chastity
has never felt the first tingling of awareness for anyone,
not the first hint of attraction. For like her name, she is
everything that is pure and chaste. Being the paragon of
chastity has never been easy. Now, in a single day,
Chastity has met two men, both of whom have sparked an
interest in her heart. However, it is the dark Prince Thane
that Chastity finds awakens her mind and body every night
in her dreams.
Masterfully written, LUST is a faery tale that has me
yearning for more. A true page turner, I find myself longing
for the rest of the series as the story is still yet
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....
The Curse of the Unseelie Court
It is said that the Fey have always lived amongst mortals,
their world lying parallel to ours. They live in two courts;
the good faeries belong to the Seelie Court, where gaiety
and light rein. Opposite to the Seelie Fey, are the Dark
Fey, those who live in the Unseelie Court, or the unholy
court as it is known. These dark Faeries are mysterious and
sensual, well versed in pleasures of the flesh. It is said
that to look upon them and their beauty is to be drawn into
their erotic, voluptuous world, and once there, your fate is
sealed, your body and will no longer your own.
And this is precisely what happened, once long,
long ago to a beautiful queen of the Seelie Court, who had
the misfortune to catch the eye of the Dark Fey King.
Immediately, the king was besotted with the queen. Driven to
possess her at all costs. Queen Aine was all the king could
think about, but Aine spurned him, forcing King Duir to
steal her away from her golden court while she slept. Like
Persephone being taken to the Underworld, Duir brought Aine
to his dark court, plying her with his erotic skills. The
Unseelie king was certain he could win Aine, but the queen
despised Duir. Long had she plotted against her captor,
vowing to leave the king and his court behind, but Duir kept
her prisoner, a concubine for his dark pleasures.
The queen’s loathing of the king festered, until she could
think of nothing but revenge. Fueled by hatred, Aine
searched for a way to break free—all to no avail. Until one
day, she was delivered of the king’s twin sons. Enraptured
by his progeny, and grateful to the queen for giving him
such a gift, Duir became less watchful, allowing the queen
new freedoms, and it was then, that Aine found a way to
leave his court.
One night she stole away, taking with her one of
her sons, the golden haired child who was the image of her
Seelie self, leaving behind his dark-haired brother who bore
his father’s resemblance. As she fled, Aine placed a spell
on the Unseelie Court, that it whither away, never to thrive
again until the Dark Fey could make a woman give herself to
him of her own free will. As well, she cursed the sons of
Duir’s siblings, and any future male children of the king
with each cardinal sin, further destroying the prince’s
chances of finding a virtuous woman who would give herself
To this day, the Queen’s spell holds strong. The
Unseelie Court is dying. There is but one hope for the
court, to find the seven women who represent the virtuous
aspects of humanity. Seven women who embody chastity,
temperance, charity, diligence, patience, kindness and
humility. Women whose very being calls to the sins deeply
buried in each prince, sins who are eager to corrupt through
erotic pleasure, their virtues.
If the court is to survive, the Fey princes will
have to find a way to make the virtues follow them
willingly, while satisfying the basic needs of their sins.
Sins, which perhaps, each virtue is ready for a taste of.
