Priest – The First Book in the Priest Series by Sierra Simone
Priest is the first book in Sierra Simone’s priest series and it’s a steamy, TikTok-famous read. It’s about Tyler Bell, who became a priest after a tragedy and is now devoted to his parish.
But his life is thrown off its track when Poppy Danforth comes into the confessional. Her husky voice seduces him like no one else ever has.
Aiden & Elijah
Five years ago Aiden Bell left his millionaire playboy lifestyle behind to become a Catholic monk. He took solemn vows and cut himself off from all relationships. Now he is living at a monastery and teetering on the line between the sacred and the profane. But when journalist Elijah Iverson shows up to do a story about him his feelings come flooding back and his world gets turned upside down.
While Aiden and the other members of his Crescent Wolf Pack do not get along with Klaus’s vampires, he did not want to see them harmed by Dahlia’s plan to take Hope. This is why he asked Klaus for help and even though he did not know that Klaus killed Aiden in City Beneath the Sea (in order to set up a trap for his aunt and her descendants), he trusted him enough to ask for his help with matters involving the Mikaelsons. So when the two men teamed up to try to stop Dahlia, Aiden’s loyalty was put to the test. And his heart was broken in the process. But the pair came out on top and he survived. He then returned to his monastery and was reunited with Elijah. This is one of my favorite stories from the series because I loved these two so much.

It’s a heart-wrenching, steamy book that takes us into the deepest recesses of their minds and souls.
A taboo erotic romance about the intersections of faith, duty and sex. Priest can be read as a standalone, but the novella Midnight Mass continues Father Bell and Poppy’s story. Also by Simone is the New Camelot Trilogy and Thornchapel series.
