The Virgin by Tiffany Reisz


I love that this series is a series of frame stories within a frame of the entire series. There's something comforting about picking up a read and knowing a little of what to expect and the thing I've appreciated about this series is that for a while now I've known where the journey ends. I've learned that it's not the SHOCKING! ending that I crave in this series; it's the journey to get to where I know I'm going that holds my attention. 

Don't get me wrong, Nora and King and Soren all have surprises up their sleeves but that's just an added bonus to the storytelling that's happening in this series. In The Virgin, we learn what Nora was up to in the year she lived in her mother's convent and how she became a writer and we learn how Kingsley meets and falls madly in love with Juliette. So much to love about these stories told in a parallel time and universe--all being told to us through the lens of sharing a bedtime story on the cusp of very special wedding. 

I'm racing through these novels. I'm helpless against these characters and their long and storied pasts and I know I'm going to be incredibly sad to get to the last book but I'm planning on enjoying the journey to get there.

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

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

With Eleanor gone, the lights have gone out in Kingsley’s kingdom. When he learns the reason she left, he, too, turns his back on Søren and runs. On a beach in Haiti, Kingsley meets Juliette, the one woman who could save him from his sorrows. But only if he can save her first.

Eleanor can hide from Søren but she can’t hide from her true nature. A virginal novice at the abbey sends Eleanor down a path of sexual awakening, but to follow this path means leaving her lover behind, a sacrifice Eleanor refuses to make.

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