More About the Author

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kate Pearce was born in England in the middle of a large family of girls and quickly found that her imagination was far more interesting than real life. After acquiring a masters degree in history and barely escaping from the British Civil Service alive, she moved to California and then to Hawaii with her kids and her husband and set about reinventing herself as a romance writer.

She writes the hot stuff for Kensington Aphrodisia, Random House UK Rouge Romance, Ellora's Cave and Cleis Press and is known for both her unconventional heroes and her joy at subverting romance cliches about exactly who gets into bed with whom. In her spare time she self publishes science fiction erotic romance, historical romance and whatever else she can imagine. She also writes for Signet Eclipse and Carina Press.

You can find Kate at her website at http://www.katepearce.com, on Facebook as Kate Pearce, and on Twitter as Kate4queen

I just have to say, I'm a huge fan of the House of Pleasure series by Kate Pearce and was so thrilled to be reading Simply Voracious, Paul's story, that I could barely contain my excitement. I wanted to read it slowly so I could savor it, but I ended up devouring it in less than a day. I may even break my own unspoken rule and re-read this one.

Lady Lucinda Haymore, daughter of the Duke of Ashmolton, was assaulted and abandoned in the garden of the ball she was attending. Her date told her she was a tease for kissing him and decided he wasn't going to stop at kissing, whether she was willing or not. Now she feels not only violated, but also scared about how this will affect her future and her family's reputation. She's ruined and may even be pregnant. She can't imagine how any man could possibly want her now.

Paul St. Clare is Lucinda's second cousin and next in line for the Duke of Ashmolton. He has been Lucinda's best friend since childhood. In an interesting twist of fate, Paul's commanding officer, Lieutenant Colonel Constantine Delinsky, was the one who helped Lucinda (or Lucky, as Paul affectionately calls her) after her ordeal in the garden. Interestingly, he's bisexual and while he prefers women, he has always been attracted to Paul.

When Lucky finally confides in Paul about the assault, he offers to marry her even though that will cause a variety of problems, not the least of which is the fact that his feelings for her are mostly brotherly. Also at issue is the fact that he's still primarily attracted to men, despite his recent attempts to learn how to pleasure women.

"Simply Voracious" by Kate Pearce is an erotic historical romance that is part of her `House of Pleasure' series that is tied to a certain elite brothel known as Madame Helene's Pleasure House. Lucinda (Lucky) Haymore is violently compromised by a fortune hunter but the solution proposed by her longtime friend Paul St. Clare is terribly awkward given her unrequited feelings for him and his prospects as her father's heir to the dukedom. That does not even begin to address his predilection for male companionship and blossoming love affair with a new lover. Under the aegis of Madame Helene Delornay and the influence of various facets of the notorious salon that she runs, Lucky and Paul work on a compromise that they both can live with and contemplate an unconventional arrangement that will allow them to pursue happiness.

This is a very spicy regency romance that is a bit of a dichotomy for me. I have enjoyed other titles in this series and I like the overall story but there are quite a few jarring notes for me. Lucinda's erratic recovery from her attack is a bit unbelievable to me as she quickly morphs from someone who jumps whenever touched to a person who is willing to explore her sexuality in a brothel and then proposes entering into an intimate relationship with a virtual stranger. Paul's conflicting desires and shifting love interests seem a little disingenuous as he is willing to sacrifice himself to the altar of propriety and nurse yet another broken heart then suddenly seems to be devoted solely to becoming a conventional lord.

I love how Kate Pearce tells a story. I also love that she's not repetitive to make the book longer. She takes her time and gives you a compete story from finish to end and she rushes nothing. I read Simply Carnal first and I was hoping for Paul St.Clare's story. Well I got it in Simply Voracious, and boy was it definitely satisfying.
There is so much compassion, and good will, and passion between Paul, Lucky, and Con. I really enjoyed reading each of their story lines. Definitely a book to curl up in front of a fireplace and enjoy. Also, read Simply Carnal. Off to read Simply Scandalous.

All of these are great. Must read from the beginning so you understand all that is happening. The books complement each other, but really should be read in order. They are very sensual and some people may not feel comfortable reading such open sexual writing, but the story line is fun and wraps up nicely in the last book.

I love Kate Pearce. Her erotica is hot and spicey, but the story lines are real and enjoyable. She is not writing erotica just for the sex, there are real life stories and real people involved.

Definitely not as good as Kate Pearce othe "Simply" books. This one lacked everything I've come to expect from her other books in this series: the character development, the sex, the complications between the couple, etc. If this is an example of her books of the future, in this series, I will not be wasting my time and purchasing another.

I felt sorry for the heroine in this book. I would've liked for the trio to have been more in sync with each other. But I was satisfied with how it turned out in the end.
