LUST by Charlotte Featherstone

Releases February 1, 2010
Of old, humans and Faeries have dwelt side by side in parallel realms. Only the canniest mortals recognize the alluring creatures that often walk - and lie - among them.

The righteous Fae of the Seelie Court cherish an ancient quarrel with their Dark counterparts: a curse born of anger and deceit. The Unseelie Court will perish unless one of is princes can win a woman's love - honestly, without coercion...and love her wholly in return.

To halt the slow demise of his people, Prince Thane - the embodiment of Lust - infiltrates the Georgian court to seduce his mortal inverse. Noblewoman Chastity Lennox is pureity incarnate - a sensual prize well worth winning. But Thane's carnal quest proves more challenging than he ever dreamed.

No other has ever been able - or willing - to resist his erotic charms. Chastity's resolve is maddening...and intriguing. It makes him want her all the more. But how best to seduce one who truly seems above temptation? Discover her greatest weakness and become the intoxicating essence of her deepest, most forbidden desires...

**********************************************************


Welcome to LMSR's *Seven Days of Fey* -  a week long event celebrating Erotic Historical Romance author Charlotte Featherstone and her new release LUST, Book One in the Sins and Virtues Series for HQN Spice!

Each day we'll learn about one of Charlotte's 7 Unseelie Fey Princes, their sins and their virtue counterparts along with an awesome daily giveaway of LUST!!!

Now, allow me to introduce you to sinful Wrath:

Name: Niall, King of the Unseelie Fey

Sin: Wrath

Eye Color: Dark, almost black

Hair Color: Dark brown, with gold highlights, (a reminder that there is Seelie in my blood)

Build: Tall, broad shoulder. Lean. Fey markings on my arms and chest that designate me as ruler of my people.

Power: The usual Dark Fey magic as well, I can come in the form of fire.

Personality: Full of anger and rage, I struggle to keep my sin at bay. Not an easy task for a king who’s court is cursed and dying. Loyal to the core, I’m determined to save his court, and the other six princes who are also saddled with sins. As king, I hold myself apart from the others. I don’t know why, only that I am different from them--more solitary, more isolated. But this has never bothered me…until Thane brought his human mate to our court…

I am Niall, King of the Unseelies--I am the most powerful Fey of all, yet despite my powers, my court is dying, and I cannot stop it.

We Dark Fey are cursed, but six of my kin and myself have even more of a burden then other Unseelie Fey. We are cursed with the seven cardinal sins. My sin to bear is Wrath--and since I have been left to save my dying court, which my Seelie mother cursed, my sin has been unleashed, and I have destroyed much during my quest for a way to break the magic that binds my people.

Searching in vain for a way to end the curse, Wrath has made it all but impossible for me concentrate. I seek only to destroy--everything--including my mother and twin, and their thriving court. Up top in the mortal world, I have been responsible for razing entire villages in search of answers--and the women my court need.

I have become the monster that wrath wishes me to be. I am a merciless, cold blooded Fey with dark passions, dark pleasures, and the sin that commits dark and terrible deeds.

I have finally come up with something, though. A way to release my court of the spell. Myself, and the other six princes of my court must find our opposing virtues--sacred females born in the mortal realm, and bring them back to our court. But they cannot be coerced, nor can faery magic be used to keep them there. They must come of their own free will. But how will that happen? How can my virtue ever come willingly, when it was me who razed her village?

My virtue is Hope, and now I put all of mine in her. For my court will not survive if she can only see the sin in me, and not the Fey.
