Mentored in the enchanting world of the courtesans, beautiful, intelligent and outspoken Catalina Cosme has her pick of any man the city offers. But no man has ever captured her interest…until she lays eyes on Father Benedict Mortimer. Determined to prove that even holy men can fall, Benedict becomes her greatest challenge yet.
The former pupil of a grand inquisitor, Roman Catholic Priest Father Benedict Mortimer was once the worst sort of libertine before he became a ruthless speaker of The Church. Now he is a man haunted by the horrifying sins of his past. After reading the memoirs he wrote during his years in the seminary, Catalina never imagined the condemnatory author was that self-same kindhearted priest whom she sought refuge with when she escaped an abusive benefactor.
As their unlikely friendship forms, Catalina’s aim for seduction begins to fade, and the love she was never allowed to experience blossoms for the man beneath the cloth.
Although Benedict offers to be her new and anonymous patron, he denies himself the temptation of claiming her body in exchange. But desire may prove to be stronger than resilience, and the salvation he believes he had long ago lost may be closer than he realizes.
The Last Confession is a story of forbidden passion and redemption.
