In manner and in essence, it's lust (9)


I believe the answer is:


'lust' is the definition.

'in manner and in essence' is the wordplay.
'in' indicates the answer is hidden within the clue.
'RANDINESS' can be found hidden inside 'manner and in essence'.

'it's' acts as a link.

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
