I’m a motherless son to a father who hates me. Fury has lived and breathed in my black heart for so long, it’s a part of my soul now. The only thing that’s ever mattered to me is protecting my twin sister, Sabella, from my father’s temper.

So when the chance to join a secret society presents itself, there’s no question I’ll do whatever it takes to become a member and earn my place in the ranks of only the most Elite.

With a taste for the deviant, I’m drawn to the darkest of desires, and no one ever leaves my bed unscathed.

My task: seduce Patience Noelle, St. Augustine’s sweetheart and the mayor’s beloved daughter—then break her heart.

Sinning is what I live for, and deviance is my passion. Failing has never been an option.

But what happens when my sin becomes my curse—when destroying the only woman

I’ve ever wanted is my key to protecting my sister?

Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak…they’re for The Elite.

This isn’t just my chance, it’s my legacy and reckoning.

I am Samuel Gunner.



Claire C. Riley is a new author to me, but for my first experience I have to say that I really enjoyed her writing style. Wrath is the third book in The Elite Seven series and once again I am totally OBSESSED with these interconnected stories. My only real complaint is that some of the scenes overlap with the timeline from Lust and Pride so I read somethings that required me to do a double take, but it wasn’t too concerning to me because it is to be expected.

Samuel Gunner was one of those totally unexpected characters that immediately intrigued me in the previous two books and I couldn’t wait to see what his story would be like. He is so angry with the world and so full of pain that you just want to reach through the book and give him a hug. My heart wept for his lost soul and when he connects with Patience he slowly starts to open up his little black heart to an idea of a happily ever after.

Patience Noelle was such a sweetheart and she is no doubt the perfect match for Samuel, but I must admit that I didn’t really connect with her character like I wanted to because I felt like there wasn’t enough time to get to know her. However, their chemistry was intense and I was captivated by their love so I slowly started to like her more by the end of the story.

Wrath was certainly unexpected and that ENDING…HOLY FREAKING MOLY! I did not expect that and I am still trying to pick my jaw off the ground. I totally need Envy by M.N. Forgy RIGHT NOW!
