Lustful Cravings Paloma Beck
Secret Cravings Publishing
Book 1 of the Seven Sins Sisters
Seven sisters are entwined in a legacy bigger than anyone ever expected. One by one, they will find their mates from the immortal vampyric Valendite breeds and secure their place in history. Each sister embodies one of the seven deadly sins only to be cast aside once claimed. But claiming comes at the price of separation, causing a weakening of their combined powers, which none want to happen... until Layla, holding the sin of lust within her body, locks eyes with Madden.
Madden is one of the strongest of the Valendite Breed, a group of near-immortal men originating from the Italian Wars in the 1500s. Today, the Valendite Breed serve as the Terrorist Elimination Unit, an invisible arm of the CIA. Their only weakness is their need for a mate to carry on the Breed. So now that Madden has found Layla, he will never let her go.
With forces mounting up against the Breed, Madden and Layla will need to rely on both of their powers to get them to their Pronouncement.
I really enjoyed this first book in a new series by Paloma Beck. It is only 107 pages, but manages to do so much in that span. The main characters Madden, a member of the Valendite Breed , and Layla, a member of the Magdalena Circle, immediately interest you in their individual and collective stories. Layla and her seven sisters are fated to mate with a member of the Valendite breed, a symbiotic relationship because the women of the Magdalena Circle give life and sustenance to the Valendites through their blood, and in return they are given long lives by their husbands’ blood. Each partner in a mating also has its own powers. Layla is the youngest of the Seven Sin Sisters and the least interested in men or mating even though her soul sin is Lust. It was not until she saw the man she was destined to mate that she opened herself to her truly lustful soul. What follows is a steamy love story of two individual who share an incredible love both emotionally and physically. In addition, you get to know the personalities of Layla’s sisters and Madden’s close friends and brothers, so you are very excited to see who pairs up next. An excellent beginning to what promises to be a hot and interesting series.
RATING: 4 Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries.
