4.0 out of 5 stars The Lover, March 25, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Lover (Paperback)
Once again i was astounded by the talent of this new author. Robin Schone has a gift! "The Lover" was a wonderful book!.
Anne Aimes, our herione, is a 36 year old spinster. She was born late to her parents and by the time was a young adult, her parents were elderly and in need of care. She sacrificed her life to look after them. Now, both parents has died, and she is looking at the wide open future that is hers. Only problem is that in Victorian times, the respectable options have no appeal for her. She could marry, in which case, she would be under someones control. Or she could stay a virgin spinster.
The one man she was attracted too, a man she met when she was a debutante, is now attainable to her. As an heiress she now can afford his "services". Anne chooses to buy a lover rather than die an old spinster or marry and lose control.
Michel des anges, or Michael of the Angels, is as tortured a hero as you will ever find. As a young runaway, he and his friend Gabriel became male prostitures to survive. He made his fortune as the most sought after lover. Gabriel later opened a brothel catering to the ton. Michael on the other hand thru some mysterious accident is burned and scarred. After losing his last patroness, a women he loved, Michael retreats, taking the fortune he has amassed and becomes an estate owner. Now, left with those scars, he has been shunned, left with the feeling that no woman would want him. He trys to retreat from public life.
However, someone is out to destroy him and those he loves. The mysterious "man" will not leave him alone.
Knowing that this mysterious man will try to destroy any type of life he has, Michael decides to bait the man, by accepting Anne Aimes offer. What follows is astoundly passionate and horrific at the same time. Anne Aimes, through her courage to take charge of her life, is awakened to her passionate nature and realizes that "beauty" is in everyone. Without spoiling the story for future readers, I will warn those who are thinking about buying this book, it is not for the faint of heart. As in previous books, Ms. Schone work is as erotic as anyone can be and she is not beyond taking the reader thru some of our characters most horrific fears. If you are expecting a sweet, kind story this book is not for you. If i were to have one complaint about this book, it would be that Ms. Schone took to much to bed with the characters. I felt that too much of the "conflict" spilled over into the love scenes, and i didn't feel that the characters totally let go of their "monsters" so to speak, as did with her previous books.
However, all in all, "The Lover" was a great read! And i can't wait for her next book! Go Robin Schone!
