I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley
Previous to reading this I had heard the name Charlotte Featherstone mentioned as an author I should check out and I even have one of her other books sitting in my TBR pile, but for some reason I just kept bypassing her – now I want to kick myself for doing that. I loved this first book in her new series that mixed Georgian England with the legend of the Seelie and Unseelie in a hot erotic romance.
The premise is simple 7 Unseelie, including the King, are possessed by the 7 Sins (Lust, Envy, Wrath etc), and in order to save their court, they must pursuade the Virtues (Chastity, Prudence) to come and join them of their own free will. The first book in the series is about Thane, who is possessed with the sin of Lust and his matching virtue, Chastity, who attempts to live up to her name, but finds herself falling under Thane’s spell.
At the same time, the Virtures are being wooed by the Seelie court, who will spot nothing to prevent the Unseelie from matching with their virtures, because they want to see them ruined. Led by the Seelie Queen, Aline, who hates the Unseelie because of what their King once did to her.
I can’t wait to read the rest of the books in the series, but have a feeling it is going to be a painful wait for the rest of them to come out. This book will be available on Febuary 1, 2011 and I highly recommended for anyone who loves Paranormal romance, as well as Erotic Romance with Historical elements.
