There are many rules a priest can't break.
A priest cannot marry. A priest cannot abandon his flock. A priest cannot forsake his God.
I've always been good at following rules.
Until she came.
My name is Tyler Anselm Bell. I'm twenty-nine years old. Six months ago, I broke my vow of celibacy on the altar of my own church, and God help me, I would do it again.
I am a priest and this is my confession.
***Priest is a standalone, full-length novel with an HEA. For mature audiences only.***
I kissed her until I saw static at the edges of my vision, until I couldn’t remember a time when we hadn’t been kissing, until I couldn’t feel where my mouth ended and hers began. I kissed her until it felt like we’d exchanged something—a promise maybe or a covenant or a piece of our souls. And when I finally pulled away, it was as if I pulled away reborn, a new man. A baptism by kiss rather than a baptism by water.Priest is one of those books that stays with you long after you finish. In fact, I would bet it will be in my top five reads of 2015! Talk about a book hangover! I totally love and hate that I simply can not move on from this book! It has been over a week since I finished and NOTHING is able to pull me from this world.
At first glance Poppy Danforth and Father Tyler Bell appear to be from very different walks of life. She has rarely, if ever, stepped foot inside a church. While Father Bell's entire life has been submerged in the Catholic faith. This story is so much more than a forbidden erotic romance. It is about two people that share a connection that is beyond what most will ever experience.
I saw the moment she felt it too - that we were fused somehow. Irrevocably and undeniably fused together into something singular and whole.As the story unfolds, I found myself aching and rooting for so many different scenarios. I was truly in pain as this couple struggled with their connection.
Please help her find guidance and peace.Their pull to one another took my breath away. You could literally feel all their angst and yet it wasn’t a situation where you wanted to bang your head on the table. It was beautiful, moving and heartfelt.
Please help her heal from her past.
And please please please help us behave.
I’d never wanted to be with a woman rather than be a priest, I’d wanted to be with Poppy rather than be a priest. I didn’t want the freedom to f$ck, I wanted the freedom to f$ck her. I didn’t want a family, I wanted a family with her.Everything about the story is true perfection. The writing is eloquent and flawless. The story is captivating and totally unputdownable! I fell in love with each and every character and yearned for the story they had to share. It must be said that Priest is so deliciously sexy it will have you blushing even if you read it in the privacy of your own home.
