The genius and the sunshine girl. As children, we fought bitterly and often, bickering every chance we got.
But then we grew up.
Then we came back.
Delphine Dansey carries her heart on the outside of her body; she’s looking for love and chasing dreams. She’s spoiled and selfish, the kind of beautiful that’s made for money and fame. But somehow she’s ended up in my keeping: a pretty submissive I can’t seem to resist, a lover who obsesses and tempts me.
I thought I’d locked my heart away a long time ago, along with all my other weaknesses. But some doors won't stay closed, no matter how hard I fight to keep them shut. She unravels me, just like our friends are unraveling, just like Thornchapel itself is unraveling.
All year long, we’ve been sowing lust and jealousy and pain, heedless of the consequences. But a harvest is inevitable, and so now we must reap our sorrows.
And our sighs.
*Harvest of Sighs is Book Three in the Thornchapel series.*
Super sexy, forbidden, and slightly twisted!
Wow, I honestly don’t know what to say. Harvest of Sighs was another sexy, forbidden, and fairly twisted installment in the Thornchapel Quartet, and it honestly left me speechless. It felt like a lot happened and yet not that much changed all at the same time. The characters (Auden, Poe, St. Sebastian, Rebecca, Delphine, and Becket) were all dealing with difficult decisions and situations, so there was a lot to take in and process. Sierra Simone definitely took me off guard with the plot, and I’m still trying to figure out how all of this will end in Door of Bruises, but I’m both nervous and excited to find out.
This is the third installment in the Thornchapel series. The series must be read in order. Auden decides that the friends will not be celebrating Lammas in the Thornchapel. While every is disappointed, they realize his feeling as probably right.
Delves a bit more into the backstory of the parents. Brilliantly sets up the final book. Plenty of angst and steamy interludes to keep the story moving. I can’t wait for the finale.
Loved book 3
4.5 stars for - Harvest of Sighs - the third book in the Thornchapel series by Sierra Simone. Books one and two must be read first as there is a continuing story line that is intense to say the least. Reader discretion is advised as this book celebrates sex in all it’s glory whether it be between two people or six. This also includes lots of sexy scenes of man-on-man love and woman-on-woman love. This is honestly some of the hottest writing I have ever read.
We pick right back up where we left off but this time the focus is more on Delphine and her relationship with Rebecca. Not that Auden, St. Sebastian, Proserpina and Fr. Beckett aren’t also a part of this book it just seems to be the girls turn for lack of a better term.
This book is written in a way that leaves you breathless and craving more. You are sucked in to a world that holds you hostage yet you’re the one left craving more. Fans of Sierra’s work will love the intense scenes and imagery she creates from the first page to the last. I am counting down the days until we can finally see how it all comes together in Door Of Bruises.
