Sinners

Thriller / Mystery

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.

Tony Lee: Read this during my 7-hour flight. You've done a great job describing each situation, but I believe there is room for improvement. Also, the ending was a bit abrupt and I think the last part where Terry Hunter was brought in again (slight spoiler) wasn't really necessary.. But overall the story k...

Spring: I normally don't read fiction novels, but I absolutely enjoyed reading Silent Shadows! The style is quite different from the previous fiction novels I've attempted to read. Great job!

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.

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.

rachelrainford6: This probably has to be one of the best books I've read on here. I read it quite quickly and I'll have to say the story took a turn towards the end that I did not see coming. The topic discussed in this book such as life really gave me a new insight and I realize that it is taken for granted.

cuzley: I enjoyed this read, the romance and the "who done it" worked well together, I would recommend this story to both romance and mystery readers .

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.

mindushree1402: It was really amazing.... I was not able to put it down..... just beyond awesome... no wonder writers do play with words... amazing storyline.... addictive too...

Deleted User: I loved this story. It was so great that I did not expect it to be this awesome. I swear to you this deserves more than just 5 stars. Beyond amazing. Kept me wanting more and I felt exactly like Emma felt while reading. Although in the beginning I did not expect anything to happen. Then, when som...

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

Tavis Ryan King: "What Happened to Charlie Carmine" is a fabulous mo-gee-toe cocktail fuelled midget orgy of psychology, fantasy and sarcasm. I laughed out loud when reading this novel so many times it made the London commuters I shared space with look at me with curious disdain - and I did not care. [Rating: 4....

Kaitlyn Bier: 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...

Caryn Moy: Love this series! Very well written, great plot and characters! I love time travel mysteries and this was different from anything I've read in the past! Bring on the sequel!!! I need to see the Compact get squashed!
