Avarice and Charity by Faye Hall

Genre Australian Historical Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Would you protect the one you love from relentless greed?
Avarice Licciardi worked for his father, Antonio – a greedy, loveless man who destroyed everyone in his way. When Avarice met Charity, a woman with fiery red hair and the touch of an angel, he discovered there was something he craved so much more than his father’s money. What he wanted was this woman.
When Antonio ordered his son to get the hidden papers in Charity’s estate, Avarice refused. That was until Antonio threatened to go get the papers himself. Knowing the brutality of his father, Avarice went to Charity’s estate, ready to protect her at all cost. When she invited him to stay with her, he hoped to find nights of endless passion. What he found was a hidden tunnel with incriminating mysteries far greater than hidden papers.
Charity Bohdan lived up to her name, giving her herbal medicinal treatments freely. What started off as patching up wounds soon took a very different direction when she was being called to treat young women who’d been brutally raped and left pregnant. She knew the risks involved with treating and re-homing these women, but until she could find the monster attacking them, she could see no other choice.
When Charity was called to treat a drunk’s wounded hand, she expected to find some elderly station hand. Who she met was Avarice. As she treated his wound, she couldn’t ignore just how handsome he was, or the feelings he stirred in her when their skin touched. The more time they spent together, talking of Irish legends and going on picnics, Charity could feel herself losing her heart to him.
Together Avarice and Charity are forced to uncover secrets from the past that sicken their souls as an evil, greedy man threatens to tear them apart in his search for the evidence hidden in the Bohdan estate.

Beth Meridian has returned home, hoping to leave her sordid past behind her and settle into a quiet life. When her childhood friend, Hannah Raeburn, offers her a place to stay, Beth knows it won’t be long until she runs into Hannah’s brother, Daniel. What she doesn’t expect is for him to reignite feelings deep in her heart, reminding her of the kiss they shared before she left town.

When Hannah goes missing, Beth and Daniel follow her trail through the Australian outback. Witnessing the womanizer Daniel is, Beth flees on a cattle train headed north. Desperate to explain his actions, Daniel follows her.
Arriving in the small town of Jarvisfield, Daniel is shocked to learn that Beth is now the owner of the largest cattle company in the area. He’s even more shocked to discover that the preacher controlling the town, and stealing from the townspeople, is his once business partner William Maxon. He’s convinced this man is also responsible for his sister’s disappearance. When he learns William has Beth picked out as his next victim, Daniel knows he must do whatever it takes to make her listen to the truth. But she has no interest in hearing anything he has to say.

Today we’re reading about Darien Avery from Lust and Chastity (Sins of the Virtuous Book 1) by Faye Hall. Tell us about your book.

Would you surrender the pleasure of lust to become a lady of chastity?

Darien Avery followed Caitlyn Sinclair from England to Australia, memories of their intense love affair fresh in his mind. When they arrive he quickly learns he isn’t the only man in this new country who’s infatuated with the breathtaking, blonde-haired beauty.

Women are turning up dead, victims to the worst kinds of depraved acts—women who fit Caitlyn’s description—and every clue to the murderer leads back to Darien’s family. Frantic to save Caitlyn’s life, he sends her up north to her family, hoping to free her from the murderer’s grasp. But she never makes it there. When he receives word that her dead body has been found, his heart breaks and he throws himself into a life of debauchery and sin as punishment for failing to save the woman he loves.

When yet another murder occurs, Darien believes he will be accused of the crime, so he flees. He finds himself in Jarvisfield—the same town where Caitlyn’s family lives. But he soon learns that the murderer who has been butchering blonde-haired, green-eyed women has followed him there.

He’s in for even more of a shock when he discovers that his beloved Caitlyn is not dead, and has in fact, been living in Jarvisfield for months. This time he will protect her. However, Caitlyn is having none of it. She believes Darien has betrayed her, and she won’t fall for him again. No longer is she his lustful lover, but rather a lady of chastity, determined to live an independent life—one without Darien.

Ethnicity English

Species (for scifi/fantasy characters):

The Hero’s Relaxed Side

This hero is at a party. Considering his story, describe the party.
Guests would be business associates, or those he wanted to entice into visiting his brothel. There would be plenty of alcohol and food.
How does the hero feel about being this particular party, and what body language is he displaying that gives it away?
He would be there for business but always on the lookout for the murderer he was hunting.
Is he more likely to mingle or remain aloof?
He would most definitely mingle so that he could talk to his guests and see if they knew anything about the murders.
If he drinks, what is his drink of choice at this party?
Whiskey, though would drink brandy if available.
How much drink is his usual?
Not a heavy drinker as he needs to keep his wits about him.
The hero figures out where the hiding places are and then goes there. Is it to hide, to avoid someone, or to go drag a friend back to the party?
He would be going to meet an informant or to spy on one of the guests. If Caitlyn was also at the party he would definitely be sneaking away with her.
Is he likely to latch onto a friend and stay with him/her and ignore others, or is he the friend that others latch onto?
He doesn’t usually latch onto people, nor allow them to latch onto him. Caitlyn is the only person he appears close to.
If someone picked a fight at this party, how is the hero going to handle it?
He would most definitely break it up, even if it meant knocking those fighting to the ground himself.
Is the hero the one most likely to get tossed out of the party, or the one who does the tossing?
He would most definitely do the tossing. He owns a brothel so is accustomed to handling rowdy patrons.
Will he know when to leave, or stay late and make a nuisance of himself?
He would know when to leave.

The Hero’s Stressed Out Side

How does the hero handle it if the cops or some other authority figure pulls him aside when he was blameless in a situation?
He has a way with words and is not easily intimidated by the police or anyone else. He would answer what questions the police asked him short and quick and get them off his property as quick as they arrived.
How does the hero react to hearing a scream?
He would run directly towards it, his heart in his mouth until he could be certain the scream hadn’t come from Caitlyn.
If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing that crosses his mind?
He would most definitely assume one of those involved was the killer he was chasing, maybe caught in the act.
If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing he does?
He would rush over and demand to know what was happening and who they were.
This hero attempts to rescue someone and realizes that he is in over his head. The odds are against him and there is no way out. He is going to get his butt handed to him. What does he do?
He would use his wits to try and escape, and maybe some dirty fighting if needs be.
The hero runs into the one person from his past he wanted to avoid. He can’t get out of the situation and must interact with him/her in some way. What does he do?
He is polite and asks why they were in Australia.
Someone younger than the hero is in charge of the situation, and they are handling it badly, perhaps bungling things. How does the hero deal with it?
He jumps in and helps whilst offering advise.
The hero is in physical pain but must bear up under it and keep going. What does he tell himself in order to get through the situation?
He would tell himself that he had to protect Caitlyn from the killer chasing her no matter the cost.
What mentor’s words come to mind in a bad situation?
Without the woman he loves, nothing else matters.
What lesson from his past gets him through a stressful situation?
He takes up smoking cannabis to deal with the stress of thinking he sent the woman he loves to her death.
