I found it to be beautifully written and thought-provoking.
Stephanie Dray
The running theme throughout the book is Harridan House, an exclusive pleasure palace for the wealthy to indulge their basest desires.
M. E. Almaguer
It's good erotic romance, heavy on the romance yet still hawt.

This book is an unusual find-one that attempts to blend literary erotica with Regency romance and emerges as something else entirely. Fans of erotica may find it too soft. Readers of traditional Regency romance might find it too sensual. I found it to be beautifully written and thought-provoking.

The four novellas that comprise ON THESE SILKEN SHEETS all touch one another and find their premise in a naughty gentleman's club called Harridan House. By choosing this unapologetically lurid setting in a famously prim and proper time period, the author immediately sweeps away any illusions the reader might have. Instead, she shines a light on the seedy underside of the era, and challenges readers to deny that no matter what social mores rule, our basic sexual instincts remain under the covers.

In spite of this erotic indulgence, most of the stories conform to traditional romance genre rules. At least, outwardly. What I found most edifying about Ms. Darby's work is its fundamentally transgressive nature. In every story, she finds some element of the forbidden, and subversively weaves it along with what romance readers supposedly want and expect from a love story. We have the conventional lonely widow, the diligent parliamentarian with a broken heart, and even a single father, looking for traditional love. But alongside these expected romance tropes, we also have some unrepentantly depraved characters, and I loved them best for their utter rebellion against the society in which they lived. (And to some extent, against the society in which their desires would still raise eyebrows.)

Ms. Darby gives us self-actualized women, some of whom have rather standard fantasies and sexual urges, and some of whom would be thought as perverts, even today.

I absolutley LOVED all these short stories, which all tie in together,, but my absolute favorite was the 1st one which was oh so very HOT!! I have finally found an author who writes erotic romance exactly as I have been looking for. Starts off quick with so much heat but balances well with romance and does not come off crude nor vulgar. The banter between the character's is awesome and there is more dialogue between character's then there is internal dialogue which tends to drive me insane, so with that being said you get great character development as well. This is a must read and I am looking forward to more from this author!

Format: Paperback
This is a set of four interwoven novellas, featuring two couples each. I wasn't sure I'd care for the format, as I don't really like novellas, but not only did I become a fan of the book, I became a fan of the format.

What makes this work is the varying levels of experience amongst the eight players, the differences in their motivations, and how much they each risked to find love. My favorite was #3, "Roses are Rouge." Madames need love, too, yanno.

I recommend this highly. It's good erotic romance, heavy on the romance yet still hawt. It's billed as erotica. It is not.

I got this on a library loan, and really liked it. The first story is the best, then the second is second best, etc., which is why I only gave it 4 stars. Worth the read.
