◄◄Goodreads Blurb ►►

My vow of celibacy has never been broken nor tempted, not even when the plague thrust me into a lawless, brutal world.
So why did God send the only surviving woman to a priest? To test me? Or to save me?

*This is a 10,000-word novelette and can be read as an introduction to the Trilogy of Eve or as bonus material between the other books.

◄◄My Thoughts ►►

If Pam Godwin plans to use this quick little novella as a gateway into the Trilogy of Eve, she has definitely succeeded with this reader. I’m totally intrigued and cannot wait to read this series. It’s seductive, sensual, and downright sinful! Literally sinful! The hero in the novella is a priest! He struggles with his attraction to our heroine, Eve.

Her eyes fluttered open. “I’ll ruin you, Roark.” I’d never wanted to be ruined so thoroughly in my life, but I would wait for God to give me some direction, to help me find my way around, through, or inside this woman. “Put some faith in my control.”

He needs her on a physical level he’s never experienced before. The longing and forbidden nature of their relationship only heightened my experience. Think….Adam and Eve do dystopian romance. That’s really the only way to sum this up.

This is my first Pam Godwin read and I’m beyond impressed! Her writing is phenomenal. I’ve never read a story like this. I was definitely left longing for more. The language is luscious and the storytelling is crisp.

I rate it: four-and-a-half-stars
