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

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a great blend of historical romance, paranormal romance and erotica in one novel. It is the first of Charlotte Featherstone's books that I have read and I am looking forward to the rest in this series.

The story centers around Chastity, the virtuous daughter of a nobleman and the living embodiment of her name, and Thane- a dark Faery Prince and the embodiment of Lust who needs her to break a curse on his court. Thane does everything he can to make Chastity fall in love with him and agree to come to his court with him. Chastity resists him at first but over time the two fall in love.

The story is well written, full of sexual tension and there are a lots of plot twists and turns to keep it interesting. Unusually I preferred the first half of the book to the second, as the world building was excellent and the sex scenes were not as frequent as in the second half.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys paranormal or historical romance novels with a bit of spice to them!
