Sometimes it’s such a struggle to put your feelings into words.
This is one of those times
So, after a half dozen false starts, including a dubious sonnet to the Shakespeare of Smut, I’ve come to the conclusion that, occasionally, feelings are best in their raw, natural state.
Something I’m sure Margie Drazen might actually agree with now.
Sacred Sins is the story that speaks to my heart because of Margie Drazen . I GET HER.
Her complications and contradictions.
Her almost irrational rationality.
Her self destructive loyalty.
I am unabashedly in love with Margie Drazen.
She locks up her hopes and dreams and heart in a box, hiding it from the world and, more importantly, herself, on a highest shelf. She becomes the Drazen warrior queen, battling for everyone else’s happiness. The struggles she faced and sacrifices she made will break you.
But then she’s faced with the moment of truth, and the only weapon left to her is that box up on the shelf. And it’s the most effective weapon of all.
You want to be there when she unleashes it.
In short, CD Reiss ripped my beating heart out of my chest. Stomped on it. Kicked it around in the dirt. Then smothered it in in the swooniest love ever. No character deserves a happy ending more than Margie Drazen. But, damn. She really has to work for it.
And it’s all because of the magical storytelling of CD Reiss. This is the total package created by the Mistress of Romance.
