STORY: Forget the Horrors. Remember…me.
A shivering young woman leans against a lamppost in the most notorious street of ill repute in all London. For Asher Colborne, Baron of Wenlock, this is a haunting vision of beauty and wretchedness. He is shocked to discover the dressed-in-rags creature is none other than Chastity Armitage, who captured his heart more than two years past.
Desperate for food and lodging money, Chastity is forced to sell herself. She never expected a tall, handsome man to appear as if from mist and change her life forever. She is given a choice, continue down the path of never-ending poverty or become the baron’s mistress.
Though they are both determined the arrangement remain an emotionless business transaction, the attraction between them is scorching. Many barriers and obstacles lay in Chastity and Ash’s path. Can the baron and the mistress embrace true love?
REVIEW: Let me say this upfront. This is a very sensual read. The love scenes in this tale for some readers could be too hot to handle. Ms. Gerrard is one of those authors that can weave an erotic and sweet love story so well that will have you panting and sighing at the same time.
The story and characters were well written and developed with just enough of complexity in the plot that they felt real and their romance felt tender yet sensual, heartwarming and romantic.
If you’ve never read this author, this would be a perfect time to start! Just be warned, sensuality in this one is off the charts!
