This book has a perfectly lovely cover that screams "paranormal romance" with its hunky guy and wolf howling at the moon cover art but it's incredibly misleading. I was fooled, you have been warned.
This is not a paranormal erotic romance, this is not even a paranormal romance, this is a work of erotic historical fiction set in 1877 with a poorly written bit of werewolfery-ness thrown in as an after thought when the book was nearly over. It seemed almost as if the author had written most of the book and then decided it needed a bit of the paranormal to spice it up. It was all very strange.
The book is basically your typical Black Lace read with a scattered plot, some sketchy characters and a whole lotta sex, some of it skanky, some of it not. It feels like you're reading two different books because it skips between two story-lines that have very little to do with each other until midway through. One is the sexual awakening of innocent Phoebe Flood, a watch repairman's daughter who is destined to marry some boring man and live out a dull sex life until she meets an intriguing woman who is a high class "tart" named Louisa. Louisa hires her on to sew a gorgeous dress (which seems to take months), befriends her and gets her all heated up. The other story line features two males who have stolen some expensive phallus from a now dead artist. There is much interesting male/male action as we learn more about their time with the sexually deviant artist who awakens in them an attraction to each other they hadn't yet discovered. Turns out they are friends with Louisa, have stolen the phallus for her to sell (after trying it out first, of course) and that's how they're all connected. Weak, but hey, I kept reading so who am I to complain.Read more ›
