This review is from: Your Scandalous Ways (The Fallen Women Series) (Mass Market Paperback)
I agree with other past reader's who could not get beyond page 80. I also paid full price for this book and am sorry I did. I do not like a book where the main character proudly admits she is a "wh____e". At that point I stopped reading the book.

Just out of curiosity - do you stop reading when the hero has had numerous lover? If not, don't you think there is a bit of a double standard going on at work here?

it's me, booklover! says:
I have not read the story - but I don't like stories when a woman has been promiscuous - yea, total double standard (not so much for "back then", but I hate it in current books as well) - I think most romance readers are looking for a more virginal or at least innocent heroine. Just my two cents...

I agree with DKThain. I think there is a tiresome double standard at work, re: sexuality in romance novels. Men are allowed to be promiscuous, while women must be "virginal" or "innocent".
I also really don't think that most readers today want wide-eyed 18 y/o virgins as heroines. So annoying; let's leave that tedious character construct back in the 80s, where it belongs.
