WOW! My mind is still reeling from this book. It was so intense and there was so much going on! But I loved every word. Sierra Simone weaves a brilliant story intertwining these six characters so beautifully. The ones you think are strong often and freely show their vulnerability, and the ones you think are vulnerable show just how strong they can be. It's intense, mysterious and very sensual. There's a lot of kink happening here...m/f, m/m, f/f, m/fm, you get it ALL!!! This is definitely not a book for everyone, but I was hooked from page one.

"He'd punish us both," I say, and it comes out like I'm fantasizing because I am fantasizing; I am imagining being thrown over his lap again, being scolded, being fucked into dreamy submission by Auden Guest for the crime of kissing his enemy.
The kiss is a crash and their lips meet in a collision of flesh and teeth and metal. There's breath and taste and ferocious, feral energy, as if they're trying to fight each other, trying to eat each other, and they only have their mouths to use.
"I'm afraid of you letting me hurt you," says Auden. "Why?" "Because then I'll want to do it for the rest of my life."
When librarian Poe Markham takes the job at Thornchapel, she only wants two things: to stay away from its tortured owner, Auden Guest, and to find out what happened to her mother twelve years ago. It should be easy enough--keep her head down while she works in the house's crumbling private library and while she hunts down why this remote manor tucked into the fog-shrouded moors would be the last place her mother was seen alive. But Thornchapel has other plans for her...
As Poe begins uncovering the house's secrets, both new and old, she's also pulled into the seductive, elegant world of Auden and his friends--and drawn to Auden's worst enemy, the beautiful and brooding St. Sebastian. And as Thornchapel slowly tightens its coil of truths and lies around them, Poe, Auden and St. Sebastian start unravelling into filthy, holy pleasure and pain. Together, they awaken a fate that will either anoint them or leave them in ashes...
