Seven sisters are entwined in a legacy bigger than anyone ever expected. One by one, they will find their mates from the immortal 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 (TEU), 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 all of their powers combined to get them to their Pronouncement.
Seven Sisters. Seven Sins. And Seven Mates to Redeem them.
Lust | Envy | Greed | Pride | Anger | Sloth | Gluttony
The seven deadly sins are transgressions that hinder spiritual growth. Essentially, to be owned fully by one of the seven deadly sins means to not be able to grow into one’s own potential. This is the very thing that intrigued me. I wanted each sister to carry one of the sins and then began the concept of linking men to their salvation from their sins. How better to tie the two mates together than to have the male be the one who truly rescues her from herself? Is there any greater way to become a hero than this?
But then I read – and read – and read – and there are so many ways the deadly sins can manifest themselves within a person. I didn’t want to take the obvious road so some of the women cope with their sins in a unique way. In Holiday Gem, for example, Gemma carries the soul sin of greed. However, she’s a historical researcher and her greed plays out through a hunger for knowledge. She throws herself into her work and is so hungry for knowledge that the lack of it puts her into panic attacks.
I admit though to being a bit obvious when it came to lust. It was just too good to pass up. In Lustful Cravings, Layla has never experienced lust until she meets her mate. Then he has to work to keep up with her needs. So why not give him a little help, add in another man, and make it a ménage? After all, a woman experiencing lust for the first time has needs. *wink * wink*
There are definite benefits and pitfalls to each of the deadly sins but it’s CONFESSION TIME… tell me which is your favorite and why. When you comment, you also can enter to win one of the first three books in the Seven Sin Sisters series.
