Wow! I admit to reading this prequel after I had already read the four books that have been published in this series. *Read between the lines = I hope that there are more books to come in this series*The Heavenly Host is just an idea. A group of horny and worthless men that have made a group with the idea of having all kinds of kinky fuckery and sacrifices and rituals.
One of them is the gorgeous male specimen, Alistair Rohan.
They bring to his home the first sacrificial lamb to their festivities. Yes, I mean a woman. One down on her luck at the moment who thought she was getting a job not being used for sex. They are in Venice, she needs money to return home to England.
But Kathleen Strong is shocked to find Alistair there. Her brother’s friend and childhood crush. And now she’s been offered to him to have sex with?
I thought this story was very well written. As usual with this series (and if you read this in order, like you should, you wouldn’t know) it’s a bit dark and gritty and maybe not your typical declaration of love eternal from the first page. And that’s one of the things I love about this author.
However, the story was a bit short, even though satisfying, I wanted more!
