    3.5 StarsA sexy artist with a shady pastA society Miss with a rebellious streak A big secret between them he thinks she s lower class Hot, hot, HOT sexual tension A suggestion of the forbiddenOne hell of an erotic Historical Romance Somehow, a man with paint on his hands and passion for his art just SCREAMS sexuality And this book delivered on that in spades, while maintaining a decent plot.

    Victorian romance borderline erotica reminiscent of Robin Schone s work Merry Vance,a 20 years old daughter of Duke of Monmouth, has one secret aspiration when she turns 30 and inherits her late grandmother wealth, she wants to set her own establishment and raise horses her only passion Until that time, Merry has to resist her mother s manipulations to marry her to a childhood friend When the pressure to marry became too much , Merry concocted a plan based on something that her girlfriend sa Victorian romance borderline erotica reminiscent of Robin Schone s work Merry Vance,a 20 years old daughter of Duke of Monmouth, has one secret aspiration when she turns 30 and inherits her late grandmother wealth, she wants to set her own establishment and raise horses her only passion Until that time, Merry has to resist her mother s manipulations to marry her to a childhood friend When the pressure to marry became too much , Merry concocted a plan based on something that her girlfriend said in passing She would compromise herself by posing for Nicolas Craven Nic is a very talented painter, darling of society and has a reputation of a heartthrob The encounter with Nic happened earlier than Merry anticipated when she was accosted in the alley close to her home Thinking of her as a servant Mary Colfax who is fleeing from an abusive household with nowhere to go, Nick rescued her and gave her shelter His motives are not all altruistic as something in the girl inspired him to paint her Merry was only too happy to oblige Nick s admiration and regard slowly changed Merry s perception of herself as a plain girl She started to see herself through his eyes as a beautiful and desirable woman And for this, she would always be grateful when their time together comes to an end And end is must be Nick, with secrets of his own, slowly realized that the servant girl is the only person who he needs to hold on to become a better person The story flows nicely It had some dispense believe moments and the ending was wrapped up too nicely but if you are a Robin Schone fan than you would want to read the book This is a new author for me and I understand that the book is part of a series But it can definitely be read as stand alone

    A lot of people have said Emma Holly is a good writer of sensual erotic stories, I was very skeptical after the first book I read by her Catching Midnight I did not like it at all and have been avoiding this author for a while, however she totally grabbed me with this book It is historical erotic romance vanilla style and highly enjoyable I have one minus to this book the hero didn t figure out our gal was virgin, didn t even consider that a possibility.

    As I told her, Julie Mom2lnb wrote such a good review of this book that I certainly don t need to do one Just know that I agree with her, even down to the extra half star Though not as blatantly sexual menage alluded to, not described, for example as the contemporary and paranormals I ve read of Holly s, this is somewhat on the way to erotica, so, if that offends you, you d best stay away.

    I love Nic He is honest about what he wants and he is not afraid to give in to his baser desires Merry however I did not like at all She is so totally naive about the consequences of her actions and then she refuses to face up to them when the time comes I thought her to be a selfish character and even in the end could not come to like her much I understand the need to be independent so I get her motivations but I disagree with her actions Nic on the other hand I found easy to forgive for I love Nic He is honest about what he wants and he is not afraid to give in to his baser desires Merry however I did not like at all She is so totally naive about the consequences of her actions and then she refuses to face up to them when the time comes I thought her to be a selfish character and even in the end could not come to like her much I understand the need to be independent so I get her motivations but I disagree with her actions Nic on the other hand I found easy to forgive for the way he treated Cris Perhaps it is just because he is man and a sexy one at that I never claimed to be fair It is a fast and easy read The sex is pretty good but sometimes it got annoying It wasromance than erotica Instead of using the word clit the author would use joy I mean really I almost fell out of my chair when she actually had Nic use the word f ck It is all worth it though when it comes to the scene on the balcony Holy shit Nic s words alone would have been enough for me
