This a shortie review as it is a short book. At 51 pages, what I expected was a short snippet of a relationship but I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of back-story that was in it. A historical erotic romance, this picks up the tale of a spurned lover that finds his ex-lover in a bit of a pickle and so tries to exact his revenge by suggesting she become his own personal prostitute to earn the money she needs to provide for her and her son. Nice huh? Only thing is, it all backfires on him spectacularly.
The set up for the story took me aback as I immediately disliked the hero. I didn’t know how he could become redeemable in the short space of time that I had with the pair of them. I shall comment there was certain things that were resolved very quickly and easily to make this a romance and take away my concerns. It was enjoyable and light, if not a little convenient in places. The one thing I came away with was the knowledge that this author can write chemistry. The sex scenes were hot, graphic and quite satisfying; I will be picking up more from the author to see where she goes with it.
This was a short, hot romance that is a good hot fix. If that sounds like something you need, this could be one to check out J
