Review: The Virgin (The Original Sinners: White Years Book III) by Tiffany Reisz

The controversial story before the story continues in the critically acclaimed and award-winning series The Original Sinners.

For years, Kingsley Edge warned Eleanor the day would come when she, the mistress of a well-respected Catholic priest, would have to run and hide. She always imagined if that day came she'd be running away with Søren. But instead, she's running from him.

Knowing Søren and Kingsley will their use their influence to bring her back, Eleanor alone, penniless and scared takes refuge at the one place the men in her life cannot follow: the abbey where her mother has taken orders. Behind the cloistered gates of the convent, Eleanor hides from the man she loves and hates in equal measure

She cannot, however, hide from her true nature. When Eleanor befriends a young virginal nun, she faces a startling sexual awakening. But Eleanor can't stay forever, and the lure of her real life beckons beyond the locked gates. But to follow her fate means to leave Kyrie behind, a sacrifice Eleanor refuses to make

The lure of the forbidden. The temptation to sin. The price of passion has never been higher, and Eleanor will have to pay it if she ever wants to go home again.

 What I thought about The Virgin
It's no secret I love this author's writing and this series. The characters are unique, the story smart, the dialogue crisp and entertaining. In The Virgin, Kingsley and Nora are the primary storytellers. Upon gathering in Scotland for a special occasion, the triad discovers there are still secrets between them, and it's confession time.

Nora and Kingsley each have a story to tell and there's a somewhat somber feeling amid the usual tales of sexual delights. I loved learning more about both of these characters, especially my favorite Kingsley. The Virgin hit me with some deep emotions, especially King's story. It might be one of the most emotional installments in the entire Original Sinners series. 

Fans of the series will love the intimate look into these characters lives and hearts.  I loved how they've worked out their dominant and submissive relationships and their acceptance of their sexuality without shame. There's real love here because of their deep understanding of each other. And that's what I call an awesome romance.
