Daughter of Lust (For the Love of Evil Book One)
by Ann Mayburn
Belal, High Prince of Hell and Keeper of the Deadly Sin Sloth, is expanding his power in the world of the 1800s by trafficking opium. He revels in the results, and as sloth begins to overtake the mortal realm, all of Hell suffers. The balance of power in Hell, as well as the fate of the Universe, will be decided by a half-demon peasant girl.
Natalia Shura, the daughter of Asmodeus, High Prince of Hell and Keeper of the Deadly Sin Lust, is unaware of the nature of her birth. When her demonic side begins to awaken, her world becomes dominated by dark passions and deadly craving, and Natalia believes she is losing her mind. But Natalia's love has been foretold as the only thing that can stop Belal and his allies, and they will do anything to prevent her ascension.
Facing assassins, avenging angels, Hell's deadly politics —and her real father — Natalia must accept the love of more than one man and embrace her demonic heritage as a Princess of Lust. If she doesn't, all that she loves will be destroyed, and Heaven and Hell will plunge into Chaos.
This book was sexy from the first chapter. I love when you get an awesome storyline and some hot, sexy, and steamy scenes. It's the best of both worlds.
Natalia is a half demon princess but she has no idea until one day when she is searching for the man she thinks is her father in a local gambling den. While she's there she is accosted and she pulls a knife on the man who attacks her. When this happens she feels a stirring that excites and terrifies her.
From there things escalate pretty quickly. A protector that her truth father, a high prince of hell, comes to her hometown and tries to help her understand what's happening to her. At first he is disguised as someone from her town but things come to light pretty quickly. Natalia learns about powers she has, powers that are stirred by her more carnal desires.
This is seriously an adult book. It's super sexy and there are quite a few super hot sex scenes. I recommend all the ladies and gents read it. It's a great story and I can't wait to read the next in the series. I'm also going to be checking out more of Ann's books.
