Exercpt- Read Chapter 1
Daughter of Lust is Mayburn's first book in the For the Love of Evil series. And if the other books are as good as this one it will be a very hot and exciting series.
Daughter of Lust has elements of a historical setting that quickly moves to a paranormal/fantasy world that moves between Earth and Hell. Mayburn does an unique spin on demons and angels and mythology of Heaven and Hell.
The main character, Natalia has grown up in Kazan, Russia in the 1800s on a small farm with her mother and the man the believes to be her father. Her papa has turned to drinking and gambling since the lost of her brother. It's up to Natalia to keep the family a float and she often has to go looking in the sleazy parts of town to find her papa and bring him home.
One night she is looking for him in one of the gambling dens when she meets a dangerous and gorgeous man. With her quick thinking and instinct she didn't know she had; she gets herself out of a violence situation.
After she is home she cannot believe the feelings of lust and violence that came over in the gambling den and she starts having erotic dreams about the man that she meet there.
Later Natalia learns that the man she has called father all her life is not her real papa but that Asmodeus, a demon High Prince in Hell is her true father. After Natalia hears that she is half demon and that feelings of lust she is having is natural; she has an internal war with her human and demon sides. She was raised to believe that having these lustful thoughts were a sin.
As Natalia starts to come to turns with her demon side she falls in love with not one man but three. One human and two demon. And where there is more than one hot man/demon you know that there are smoking hot love scenes. And let me tell you, Mayburn delivers. Daughter of Lust had me reaching for *B.O.B more that once if you know what I mean.
I loved Mayburn's characters and world building and I cannot wait for the next book in the For the Love of Evil series. I would recommend Daughter of Lust to anyone that enjoys reading paranormal romance with a little historical twist.
Fans of Sunny's Mona Lisa series and Laurell K. Hamilton's Merry Gentry series will want to give this one a try.
