Sinners

She is perfection... Draped in moonlight, her glabrous, alabaster skin glimmered, and horripilated as the late autumn wind blew through the windows. Her raven curls dispersed around her curvaceous body like coiling vines on the branches of trees and throughout the silken dark blue sea of cushions and bed linen. Sculptured by the gods, she retained her welcoming posture as if inviting painters to inspire from her pulchritude.

She is perfection... Grossly incandescent even under moonlight, arms above her palpitating chest, she appeared to fall from a divine state of slumber; a fair maiden loved by many, hated by none. An idol to the young, with the generosity of a saint, her warmth reached even the vagabonds and the impaired. Unblemished she was, like the quintessential autumn day, with elegance and grace. He became engorged as his eyes devoured her scourging physique, craving to bite the mouth-watering purity forbidden to the sinner.

She is perfection... As he restrained himself from an attempt to defile her, she awakened from her deep slumber and watched him. Her russet eyes peered into his soul with tender inquisitiveness, like a saint redeeming the dammed, she irradiated his soul with a genuine smile. Alarmed by her tranquil state, he hesitated to approach her, petrified by her innocence. Those eyes of hers stirred emotions he was ignorant to, caused his heart to flutter, his breath to falter, his knees to tremble, yet he felt invited. He approached her sanctuary, obstructing the moonlight as he contemplated her. She reached for his hand and fondled it preciously, enforcing his arousal.

She is perfection... Cherished by many and abhorred by none, he placed his hand over her eyes and gazed at her blossomed lips like a famished beast; he came with many promises. He reached for his belt and dove to savor her craved lips. There was a transient invulnerability as he retrieved the gift from his belt, and removed his hand from her eyes. Her face became flushed as she smiled graciously, emitting such honesty and joy; he had pledged to the covenant. As the late autumn wind blew through the windows, embracing her denuded body, he plunged his hand onto her chest. The knife has pierced her heart, but she did not fray, she accepted her fate. And with her fading breath, she bestowed upon him an apologetic smile to atoned for her wrong doings and he became compunctious of his acts, but he had pledged to his covenant to sacrifice his desires.

She was perfection... Days after he had sinned, the courier knocked on his door and deliver a stack of letters he had been guarding after his accident on the road. He received the letters with a smile and retrieved to his comfort to read them. There, in the flickering fire of the candles, he discovered that she had been sending letters to him after their first encounter in the market. In the letters, she declared her undying love.

Marimar Amieva: Although I found the vampire thing a bit too much, I couldn't stop reading it. The story had a bit of everything: mystery, romance, a huge plot twist and relatable characters. I congratulate the author for this story and hope to read more of whatever he writes.

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

Rachel Mc Donald: This was an awesome book a real page turner couldn't put it down . The characters all had a good back story . I love these kind of books and would read it if you decided to write a follow up book . Excellent work

Shadows: 50 seconds into this story, I already loved it. I could not put it down, it was such a page-turner. I would rate it infinity stars if I could.

Karl12: This is a very unusual sci-fi mystery. I enjoyed the suspense which was present throughout the story. I loved how I never knew what to expect from the characters.

Katy Rayne: i really enjoyed this book. i have to say i didn't know what to expect, but with every chapter that came something crucial to keep you reading happened. I was disappointed with the ending if this is for another book i will defiantly carry on reading the next book.

borkarprasad: Nicely laid story. Needed a little more ghost and Raven conversations. Initially, Had everyone on suspect list but satisfied by the precision to capture the killer. Waiting for more Raven and Cade adventures.

Kim Walker: The characters in this book was very well developed. It is very evident that the writer put q lot of thought and effort into his work. I thoroughly enjoyed it! The way he described the scenes, the plot, the setting is absolutely remarkable. Two thumbs up!

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

Catherine Kopf: This novel has an interesting perspective on a broken mind that obviously the author took a lot of time into creating. The main protagonist is very fleshed out and complex, allowing the readers to root for and feel empathy towards him. There is enough in there to really give the reader an emotion...

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

smile4me: Exciting page turner. I was barely able to put it down to go to bed. I can usually figure out the twists before they are revealed but not this time! Such a thrill to be surprised. I can hardly wait for the follow up!!

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.
