Review & Giveaway: SACRIFICE OF A VIRGIN by Renee Charles



by Renee Charles


Rena stands tethered to a post high on a mountain, awaiting the dragon, praying her death will be painless and quick. Although she is meant as a sacrificial virgin, she soon discovers death will not be her fate. Powerful and seductive, the shape-shifting dragon, Marcos, has something far more erotic planned for her. She will fulfill his dark appetites and come to accept her own submissive nature without shame. At the dragon's instruction, the virgin will explore needs and desires beyond imagination and Rena’s commanding lover will teach her just how wicked she can be.

He slipped off the bed, brushed his long hair out of his face and held her stare as he prowled around to the other side. He moved like a panther stalking its meal, muscles rippled with intent and purpose. His defined abs flexed and relaxed with each step. His strong jaw twitched, as if he held back the true power of his desire. The true hunger for his prey. His intensity frightened and excited her all at once.
Marcos lifted her free arm and kissed her hand with firm lips before binding it to the other post. He traced a path down her arm and found the hem of her gown still tangled around her shoulders and ribs. With little effort, he tore the remnants in two and removed them, exposing her breasts completely. He grasped a foot and tied her ankle to one post with a long strip of leather. It wasn’t until Marcos captured the other foot and spread her legs to secure it that she had a moment of panic.
“No, please.” She drew her knees together.
He locked eyes with her. “Use your word.”
Rena stopped struggling and shook her head, but still kept her knees together, her good sense warring with this new wanton desire.

My Review:
 This was an extremely fast and very hot read!
Rena always had darker desires and knew that her sisters wanted a different kind of life than her so she offered herself up to be "sacrificed" to the dragon. Marcos the dragon has a different plan in mind than eating her. He teaches Rena about her darker urges and all about pleasure.
Marcos and Rena were very steamy together. I really liked Marcos. He was very respectful of Rena and helped her through her fears about what she always thought to be wrong and not proper. I liked that Rena was able to gain her freedom to be herself and get away from those who would ostracize her.
I hope that the author does more stories with these two. I would love to explore them more and have them actually have a relationship and not just the happy for now ending.

Romance Author, Renee Charles believes all love is legendary. Although she leans toward the strange & unusual, inevitably she leaves you with a sigh at the end.
Renee will be giving away A $10 amazon card, a small pewter dragon, and a signed copy of Renee Charles' Only Love

  1. Never heard about it before, but I'll be sure to look it up - thanks for sharing :)

  2. And thank you for the lovely review. I am so glad you thought it was hot. I really enjoyed writing Marcos and Rena.

    1. It was great! Are there going to be more books in the future with them?

    2. I had not planed on it. I have a blog post on my website about Marcos' origin. I have two projects in the hopper. Another erotica tale similar to this one, but mermaids this time. And a full length novel which will be a surprise. I do have two other books out you might find interesting.
