Priest and Sinner by Sierra Simone

Priest and Sinner by Sierra Simone are books 1 and 2 of her Priest series. As the title suggests, one of the characters starts of as a Priest. I found that she managed to write a rather respectful book towards those that are religious (myself included), but it is a taboo topic and if you can't get over that perhaps you should not read it. But if you can, prepare yourself for two amazing books!

Priest
Father Bell is still new to the priesthood. After some horrible things that happened to his sister, that ended with her taking away her own life, he decides to dedicate himself to God and show those around him that not all Priests are monsters. 
And Poppy needs someone to talk to. What better way than to turn to God and use confession? 
Things take a turn rather fast. Tyler (Father Bell) loves God and being a Priest, but perhaps he didn't consider how much he would have to give up from his previous life. And Poppy makes sure to remind him. Poppy is a temptation he cannot resist.
I loved them both. They were great characters. Tyler is faithful (albeit a very naughty boy) throughout. Poppy grows as the story progresses, in faith and in personality. 
This is 100% an erotica. What the blurb hints at happens and is told in great detail and more than once.
It is not a story for those easily offended. But it a GREAT story. A story of temptation, of love, of emotional and spiritual growth... but like every human being in the planet, their story has bumps along the road. 
I truly cannot recommend this one enough. Its HOT HOT HOT, a respectful taboo (say what?), and a FABULOUS romance story.

Sinner
Sean Bell is one of Tyler Bell's brother. Tyler turned to God when his sister was abused, Sean did the exact opposite. He follows the money and he follows the skirt. The people he cares for as his parents, his brothers, and his best friend. That is it. Everyone else is there to be used while he needs something from them.
Zenobia is his best friend's little sister. Someone he has not seen in years. Last time he saw her she was still a kid. 
Their first encounter is at a party, he sees this gorgeous young girl and hits on her hard. She is only 21, he is well over 30. He has to leave and thinks he will never see her again. Than his boss calls him in and tells him some nuns are making a fuss on a building they just purchased. And surprise! The girl from the party is there, not a nun yet but only a few weeks away from saying her vows. And her name? Zenobia. His best friend baby sister.
It could all end there, but than she decides she needs to 'experience' the world before making her vows and what better way to do it than with someone experienced, that loves sex and money too much to ever get attached, and that she knows she can trust with her life?
I am sure you can all guess how this unfolds. 
It is a beautifully told story of one man in a lot of pain that can't let go of the past and a girl that has never been able to make a decision for herself. 
It was much slower than Priest and I wasn't sure about it to start, but once the story picks up it is heartbreakingly beautiful!

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancĂ© and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she

The Warlord (Rise of the Warlords #1) by Gena Showalter

I discovered Gena Showalter long after her Lords of the Underworld series had started. I have those books, but I haven't read them all. I have however read many of her other smaller series. My favorite still the one that introduced me to her books in 2018, Shadow and Ice  (Gods of War).  The Warlord  is the start of a new series, but if you have read Lords of the Underworld  some bits will connect. It is not necessary you read them though, gods know I have not. They sit on my middle shelf and I stare at them daily, does that count? hehe Here is the blurb: For centuries, Taliyah Skyhawk has prepared to become Harpy General, leader of the deadliest female army in existence. One of the requirements? Remain a virgin. But, for a chance to save her people, she must wed the fearless leader of the Astra Planeta, Alaroc Phaethon. The time has come for Roc to sacrifice another virgin bride to his god. There has never been a woman alluring enough to tempt him from his path. No warrioress po
