The genius and the sunshine girl. As children, we fought bitterly and often, bickering every chance we got.

But then we grew up.
Then we came back.

Delphine Dansey carries her heart on the outside of her body; she’s looking for love and chasing dreams. She’s spoiled and selfish, the kind of beautiful that’s made for money and fame. But somehow she’s ended up in my keeping: a

♂️Must Have Book Boyfriends ♂️

From the moment we met, we were a wickedness. A sin and a tragedy.

The Thornchapel series is crazy amazing. And let me tell you Sierra Simone has created a world I never want to leave. With each book she has me even more addicted. Harvest of Sighs was not just a tale full of angst, sex, riveting moments, mystery and intrigue, it was an EXPERIENCE. I cannot even begin to describe to you how much I adore each and every character in this series.

The heir. The dreamer. The priest. The genius. Th

It gets pretty steamy in Thornchapel, we know from previous books that Beckett carries a torch for Poe, and Auden and St.Sebastian are tied up with Poe in their midst, playing a tug of war of egos too.

The 3rd book in the series and it’s definitely filled with deep emotions and some serious erotic scenes. These 6 -Auden, Proserpina, St. Sebastian, Father Becket, Delphine and Rebecca- become more embedded and enraptured to each other. The discoveries, the historical stories, the past and the present are at times twisted and convoluted yet magical and mystical.

Tears and angst and love and sex and heartbreak.

Ugly tears that weren't just mine, but every heartbroken character in the story.

What I loved about this book: everything. But more specifically...

The addressing of bi erasure
Mental illness
Sexual assault (I love that it was handled with care and sensitivity to the character and that a warning was issued in the beginning)
Polyamory and queerness
All the love and kink and emotion

The DuMaurier of Kink doesn’t disappoint. Even though “Harvest of Sighs” left me punch drunk and reeling, I have not a single regret. It literally let me trembling, knowing I was on the brink of something fearsome and momentous. It was beautiful and brutal and lush. The kind of mean that you crave.
The story washes over you like a glittering summer day. Hot, intoxicating and perfect. Even the prose screams “summer”. The words cascade like the first bite into an overripe peach plucked right off t

May 5 2020- Wow! This was so disappointing. There were certainly some great high points but there were also so many low points, which just equals out to this being pretty average.

I think the most disappointing thing was that there wasn't enough of the pagan rituals that gave this series its "magic" and made it so addictive. That "magic" has been the highlight of this entire series for me. The atmosphere of the book was

This story is sensual, haunting and mysterious. Dive in at your own risk, but the reward is more than worth it.
Harvest of Sighs is book 3 and definitely not a standalone.

I have been looking forward to this book since finishing feast of sparks last year and my oh my it was good to be back at Thornchapel. The book aims to steer the focus of the story towards Rebecca and Delphine and the exploration of their D/s relationship. That said of course we still see chapters from St Sebastian, Beckett, Auden and Prosepina too, after all their stories are interwoven with each other.

Sierra's prose as ever is astute, enigmatic and almost poetic in the way her words flow acros

As this series continues I fall more and more in love with these characters, the setting, and the story. Sierra Simone’s writing completely sucks you into this world she has created and I am living for it.

The mysteries, the suspense, the twists, the turns, the love, the steam, lies, truths, and secrets continue throughout Harvest of Sighs. While some things were revealed throughout the course of the book, so many more things came up.

Rebecca and Delphine are a couple and their Domme/submissive

This review is suuuper long because I have much to say. I know it’s boring to read long ass reviews, which is why I divided it in small parts so you can read the part you like and skip the rest 😊

I’m so sad it’s over! I get so engrossed in these books and the Thornchapel verse, that I feel so empty when I finish them. It’s just hard to come back to reality 😭

OK so let’s get right into it!

I am really in love with these characters and Sierra's writing is so captivating you can't help but reading this until 4am in the morning and then regret everything when she gives you so much pain and heartbreak in the end. I adored that we focus more on Delphine and Rebecca here, they deserved more space and introspection. My heart hurts for them both, especially for Rebecca. Each character has so much dept and they all have unique voices and experiences to bring to the table.

Me to Sierra Simone:


I didn't know what type of fuckery was to be expected when I started this book, but I sure as hell wasn't expected that ending. Like, Sierra Simone really waited until the last 10% of this book to pop shit off and I've never been more stressed! I honestly feel like I came out of this book having even more questions than when I started and I'm hoping the puzzle pieces start falling into place soon because I need to know if my theories are right.

Now I gotta wait

WOW, just WOW!!! As I read each book in this series, I am more blown away. Harvest of Sighs is the continuing story of Auden, Poe, Delphine, Rebecca, Becket and St. Sebastian. I find it utterly amazing that an author can write such a story that the Thornchapel series is, centered around SIX main characters! Mad, mad props to Sierra Simone.

I truly believe that a reader should go into each of these books blind, so I am not going to give out any details.

Something is coming … There’s a storm brewing … #sendhelp This story, and especially this installment is ridiculously anticipatory. I was on the edge of something the entire time I was reading. It is also extremely sensual and erotic. Extremely. And also, quite wordy. I could have used a bit dumbing down on a good portion of the religion/history. There were times when things felt more drawn out than they needed to be but honestly,

Oh my friends! Harvest of Sighs just continues us on our quest and discovery, a perfect combination of mindf’ery and awe. Sierra Simone is a master crafter of words. She is a truly gifted writer. Her ability to continue to deliver shock value, sensuality, amazement, love, history and obsession with these characters is astounding. I have been hooked since book one and I will be honest, she continues to test the limits of my boundaries of comfort and I’m absolutely open-minded and okay
Kindle Crack Book Reviews Cheri
Harvest of Sighs (Thornchapel #3) by Sierra Simone should come with a warning label that says that this book is highly flammable. You or your e-reader might catch fire. The third installment is equally brilliant and highly combustible as the first two books. This series is intense, complex, and wickedly forbidden. What an ending. I’m dying to read the conclusion to this series. Door of Bruises
(Thornchapel #4) will release in October. I’m hoping to recuperate from this last release. Cold shower,

Oh golly I’m still pretty much stunned and shell shocked after finishing Harvest Of Sighs. I mean what Sierra has created in this story, the characters, the knowledge, every little detail, the typical British slang (oh bleeding hell) those little touches make it incredible, I’m in awe of her!

When I head back to Thornchapel, I just know it’s going to be magical and the words will flow like a melody. The Prologue alone, wow I found it haunting and beautiful at the same time.

My most anticipated read of 2020. Is it still 2020? I’ve lost track.

I feel like the Thornchapel Six are my best friends. I have an invested link in their happiness. I want sunshine and butterflies and rainbows. Orgies in libraries and in gardens and in old church ruins. Every day. Every. Single. Day.

I started Harvest of Sighs with a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye because of the bomb drop at the end of Feast. I was so hopeful that Sierra would play a blinder. In fact I think I told her s

Harvest of Sighs is the third installment of dark romantic Thornchapel series. While reading this story, my mind kept repeating the line from Winston Churchill, "Those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it, and the quote from the bible regarding the Sins of the Father upon the sons to the third and fourth generations. So while Sierra Simone takes us on a depraved immoral sinful ride through Thornchapel's history we notice that human nature does do exactly as expected and repe ...more

Why do I bleed for these characters?

Dear Saint, my heart is shackled to your conflict and pain.

Auden, your abundance of arrogance makes me want to slap or kiss you.

Poe, your open heart is a soothing balm.

Rebecca, I see you.

Delphine, sing, girl, sing your glory.

Becket, I saved the best for last. You’re the dark horse, alongside Saint for my heart.

Sierra Simone’s haunting words will not leave me..come on, Door of Bruises, I’m ready for you.

And now I’m dead until the next book!!! This series continues to unfold epically and beautifully and goes in different directions of anything I’ve really read before but weaves such a intense story that you are captivated and stay that way from book one!

As with most Sierra Simone’s books, I was sucked into the character’s lives before the end of Chapter One. I thought I knew going in where they would lead me but was I ever wrong. Of course, this doesn’t surprise me because it’s Simone’s outstanding writing.

Wow... This just had blowned me away! Harvest of Sighs was so breathtaking. Sierra had ways to play the storyline so good. This entangled relationship between 6 people. Uggh, I had craved for the rawness edge. Complexity and being Vulnarable. Harvest of Sighs were not meant for a single thought. I love the darkness..each characters had played so well.
By far, best book from the series ❤

Gosh, I'm not sure there is anything I could say that hasn't been said over and over both in my own reviews and in others. Sierra just has this wonderful freaking ability to weave all this lore, this myth, this history into the now, giving us this wonderful beautiful, yet somehow tragic world. All of our characters have so much depth to them. Each story builds on each person, their strengths, their weaknesses, their power over others and each other. Each corner they turn brings more answers but ...more

Sierra did it again. This book was good like usual but there was some stuff I had some issues with and that was mainly Saint. I found him to be whiny in my opinion. I did found myself sometimes skimming through his chapter, granted I didn't felt like that towards the ending of the book so at least that was a positive thing.

I really liked seeing all of the other characters specially Delphine and Rebecca and how their relationship is evolving. Beckett is still
