STORY: An Intriguing Proposition
Passion. Seduction. Pleasure. These are the qualities of any courtesan worth her salt. As owner of The Starling Club, London’s most notorious house of ill-repute, Madame Philomena McGrattan has seen it all, heard it all, done it all. There is little that surprises her anymore, and even less that excites her. So when she is presented a chance at an irresistible seduction, she can’t help but rise to the challenge.
A Dangerous Game
Studiousness. Practicality. Discipline. Such are the attributes of a good scholar, and such are the principles Lord Spencer Hornsby has built his life around. Alone in the Welsh countryside, with only his wolfhounds for company, Spencer has thrown himself into his work. There is little time for the pleasures of society, not even to think of the joys of the fairer sex. But when an unexpected guest arrives at his isolated hunting lodge, Spencer cannot help but be baffled by the presence of this dangerously beautiful woman. And when he discovers the reason for her arrival, and the pleasures she promises, he cannot help but find himself irresistibly intrigued.
REVIEW: Ms. Gerrard is starting a new historical series and I’m loving it!
Here are the reasons I’m sure you’d love it too.
How many stories are out there with the virgin hero?! Not many, I’m sure, but every one of those that I’ve read, I’ve loved. I believe the reason for it is their vulnerability despite their obvious strength.
The heroine was someone you may have doubts about at first, but just give her a chance and you’ll love her spunk and complex background.
As for the chemistry between the two?! Off the charts! Ms. Gerrard can always put a well written and plausible plot, and her prose is wonderful, but it’s the chemistry between her characters that keep me glued to her books. Highly recommended!
