Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A scorned husband finds love in the arms of an elegant courtesan in this passionate and touching Regency. Respectable country gentlewoman Rose Marlowe supports her brother and repays her dead father's substantial debts by working seven sensual nights a month in an exclusive brothel. Wealthy merchant James Archer, locked into a terrible marriage as the price of his younger sister's entry into high society, seeks satisfaction in her arms. As their seven nights speed by, Collins (Her Ladyship's Companion) builds a skillful and sensitive portrait of their journey to passion and love. James's villainous wife is shallowly portrayed, but his surprisingly mature sister, Rebecca, and, especially, the bisexual prostitute Timothy Ashton, Rose's close friend, deserve their own turns in the spotlight. Though the setting is not particularly specific or rich in period detail, the sizzling central romance is exceptionally good and will entirely satisfy fans of sensual historicals. (Nov.) (c)

From Booklist

In her second novel after Her Ladyship’s Companion (2009), Collins uses the conventions of the Regency genre to bring together two exploited people. After her father dies, leaving her with a mound of debt, a younger brother, and no marketable skills, Rose Marlowe goes to London one week a month to work as a prostitute at an exclusive brothel. Pushed into a loveless marriage by his father, who uses him to get connections to the peerage, James Archer succumbs to visiting a brothel and meets Rose. Without sparing them or the reader all of the roadblocks in their way, Collins traces their relationship from the awkward first meetings to their sense that they were meant to be together. Rose and James, however, are nothing if not realistic and practical. Collins adeptly makes readers not only like the lovers, but also feel sympathetic about their plight, while using gentle erotica to spice their ultimately satisfying courtship. --Pat Henshaw

My Review:

The Plot:

As a woman fully reconciled with her choices in life, Rose Marlowe has managed through sheer desperation to become the most beautiful and the most expensive courtesan at Rubicon's upscale brothel in London. Born a gentle country miss, obviously this direction she's taken with her life is not her fairytale dream coming true but rather a nasty turn of fate that's made selling her body for a man's pleasure an absolute necessity. Now, for one week each month Rose makes the trip from her wilting country estate to Rubicon's in dreaded anticipation of her body hosting a seemingly endless revolving door of flesh hungry men. But on the first eve of yet another week of torture, Rose meets James and her life is forever altered.

Like Rose, James Archer has made necessary choices in life. Willingly condemning himself to a marriage with a woman that despises him, all in the hopes of granting his younger sister's wish of making a splendid match with a titled gentlemen, James has subjected himself to a cold and endless isolation. When three years elapse without one single gentle touch from a woman, James is at his breaking point. Not a man who condones infidelity, James has even more reason not to trespass upon adultery. His despicable wife has threatened to rescind her sponsorship of James's sister if she's humiliated by an affair. This of course does not apply to her infidelities which rage across the ton like a burning inferno. But with the cloying loneliness overwhelming each and every thought, James gives in to his baser needs and knocks on Rubicon's door.

As a courtesan accustomed to men taking what they want with few incomplete pleasures tossed her way in the process, Rose is shocked and confused by her initial interactions with James.

Format: Paperback
After Rose's parents died a few years ago, her 13 year old brother was left without a great outlook in life when most of their money went to cover the family debt. Without many options, Rose decides to take control of her life, and sell her body. A profession where she comes to realize leaves her with little control at all. After two unsuccessful protectors (one married, one abusive) she finds Madame Rubicon's brothel and has been employed there for the past four years. Being beautiful, and having experience, she only needs to work seven days out of each month and then she is able to retire to her country house for the remaining three weeks, and spend her hard earned money covering her brother's luxurious lifestyle.

James Archer has become very wealthy in trade. He is a commoner though, no titles in his family. His father gave him his shipping company and James is set for life, although works extremely hard. Wanting his younger sister to have every advantage, he knew he had marry someone titled. He ends up marrying Amelia, a daughter of an earl. Now his sister is able to have a coming out season, but James is paying for it emotionally. After his wife told him to come no where near her at their wedding breakfast, and she parades her lovers in front of him, James has turned to work, to hide, and forget about his life at home. He is so lonely for attention, and for a woman's touch after three miserable years of marriage, that he finds himself at Rubicon's. He has never been unfaithful to his wife, until this night and he promises himself it will only be this once.

It is here he meets Rose, and they both are surprised at who they find. James treats Rose with respect, and dignity, yet he still lusts after her something fierce.

STORY BRIEF:
James' father forced him to marry Amelia who despised him, insulted him, and flaunted her lovers in his face. James' younger sister Rebecca will be coming out - her first season. The deal was that Amelia, with her title and connections, would sponsor Rebecca to help her find a titled husband. James has endured loneliness for three years, being married to Amelia. He goes to Madame Rubicon's brothel wanting a woman who is kind and who desires him. He meets Rose and sees her every night. For the first time in years James is happy.

Rose's father died eight years ago, leaving massive debts due to gambling. She became a mistress to earn money to pay off the debts and send her younger brother Dash to expensive schools. After her patron abused her, she joined Madame Rubicon's brothel where she works one week a month. This allows her to provide Dash with an expensive lifestyle. When Dash was ten, she didn't tell him about their father's debts. Now Dash is eighteen, and she doesn't tell him she has been working as a prostitute because he will think less of her. Of course she has to work even more now because Dash runs up large gambling debts.

REVIEWER'S OPINION:
The overall plot is predictable. We have the above setup, and we know they will fall in love, be happy at the end, and the rich guy will support her so she no longer has to be with other men. This is romance so having a predictable plot is ok. What is not ok is all the stuff that happens while they get to know each other and how they get to the happy ending. This was the problem. She "makes up reasons" to worry about things, to feel bad about herself, to leave him, and to plan to stop seeing him. For example page 234: They are in love and spending time together.
