Rebel Priest by Adriane Leigh

REBEL PRIEST by Adriane Leigh
Release Date: February 20th


From USA Today Bestselling Author Adriane Leigh comes a searing standalone love story with a jaw-dropping twist…

When the bottom finally falls out of Tressa Torrado’s life and she’s given an eviction notice for her one-bedroom walk-up, she lands at the first place that’ll have her–and the last place she’d expect to find herself.

Father Bastien Castaneda is trained to heal the wounded of his flock, his warrior strength and mysterious moral fortitude as intoxicating as any superpower. Soon they’re working side by side together–chemistry simmering to a boiling point as two desperate hearts find the will to live again while forbidden love lights like lighter fluid in their hearts.

But it isn’t long before secrets so explosive come to light it torches the very foundations of their belief, and only time will tell if theirs is a love strong enough to survive the inevitable fall.


Note: Rebel Priest was first written as a novella in 2013 in the Forbidden Fruit V. 2 Anthology under the name Sins of the Flesh, and then as a full-length standalone titled Rebel Saint in 2018. Minor characters, situations, and scenes have been added to enhance the story.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

You guys … this story is amazing. I expected to read holy unholy taboo goodness but I got sooooooo much more. Forgive me Father for I have ….. changed my panties and swooned like a lunatic reading this amazing story!

The emotional journey for both Bastien and Tressa captured not just my mind, but my soul as well. I felt this story. The good, the bad, the dark, the light and everything in between. It was just glorious. My heart was happy. The style that this author uses in her writing grabs you and doesn’t let go. I felt a pull to just keep reading and not stop. I cannot sing this book’s praises higher. It was unexpected and it devoured my heart.
