"This novella is packed with suspense and danger; making it stand apart from other romances."
"Virgin Dancer has a compelling plot (humantrafficking pulls my strings every time) and enough eroticism to feelindulgent. I could feel the emotions and hear the characters as if I wereexperiencing the words instead of simply reading them.The vivid imagery had me hooked, wishing I could step into Jade's placefor just one scene."

About the Author
Deborah Court lives in a picturesque European small town. At night sheloves to write romances about elven warriors of deadly beauty, capableof making a woman die from sheer pleasure - or stories to awaken thedeepest, most secret fantasies of her readers.
This is a book by a new author and I enjoyed it a good deal. My rating is actually like a 3.75 but I'm rounding up because I think Ms. Court crafted a well developed, although short, story with interesting characters. The insertion of Ascobar kept it from being a mundane story and added an element of intrigue to the story. Very hawt too.
So many elements to enjoy are packed into this novella; it's difficult to choose just one stand-out moment or character. Jade is beautifully described and voiced, with the right touches of sensual greed and virginal innocence, and a highly developed curiosity. Alrick reminds me of Erik in the True Blood television show (Don't Judge!) with his arrogant demeanor and his highly sexualized and sensualized approach to the world that belies a myriad of untapped emotion and secrets.
Not only are these two characters really well placed and defined, but the tensions between the two are palpable; the sex is steamy and weaves into the story never feeling gratuitous or unnecessary - but developing the character's connections and providing them with a feel of connectedness even in the midst of the secret that could tear them apart as it endangers them all. The addition of the trafficking, and the emotions Jade experiences with her little brother endangered all managed to add another layer of complexity to the story, without feeling contrived or unnecessary; Court manages to tightly control the plot and still develop both stories to being a satisfactory conclusion.
I received an eBook copy for purpose of honest review for the Jeep Diva. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
In the latest erotic romance novella by Deborah Court I was expecting a light, fluffy romance with a few good sex scenes, but it's so much more! The pages turn fast as the suspense builds, and the characters turn out to be highly sympathetic, three-dimensional people caught in a perilous bind.
Jade Cameron is the dancing beauty who, as the story begins, has set her sights on giving up her virginity. Her girlfriends drag her to the premiere club for singles in New York, where she meets the enigmatic owner of the club, Alrik Larsson. Built like one of his Viking ancestors, the Swede nearly melts her on the spot with his golden curls, his broad shoulders and his icy gaze.
What saves Virgin Dancer from joining the ranks of ordinary romances, and what transforms it into something unique, is that the club owner's hidden identity draws Jade into a dangerous web of criminal enterprise. When Jade's autistic brother is introduced, it adds a further dimension to her character. And all the elements are present for a complex yet fully plausible dilemma which jeapordizes their lives as well as the developing relationship between Alrik and Jade.
I enjoyed Virgin Dancer from the first to the last page. As the sex scenes are explicit, this book is not suitable for young readers; yet I was impressed with how tasteful the scenes were and how essential to the story. The author has achieved an exquisite balance between sensual entertainment featuring real-life characters and intelligent plotting. Highly recommended.
As a big fan of this author, I was very pleased to see a new release (although I'm waiting for the next in the elven warrior trilogy). When I settled down for a good steamy read, I wasn't disappointed.
Virgin Dancer is different and modern and I found the plotline very interesting. Set in New York, the heroine, Jade, just wants to find the right man to help her lose her virginity in the nicest possible way and goes along to a night club on her birthday in search of one. But the man she is drawn to, the sexy Swede Alrik, turns out not to be what he seems. She thinks she can handle the situation but soon finds herself out of her depth. Jade is quite naïve, but she is compassionate and fiercely protective of her younger autistic brother and this helps to make her a much more rounded character. The scenes with the brother are very touching.
I had my doubts about Jade at times (though maybe I was just a bit jealous!) but never about Alrik. He's incredible - hot as hell but also deep and caring - the fact that he has put his life on the line for what he believes in proves that. I think he's probably one of the best of Court's heroes so far and deserves a story of his own - maybe a prequel about his early life and how he got involved in his line of work?
I was amazed at how easy this read was. It gripped me right from the beginning and never let go. Deborah Court has a way of twisting the septic into a great story and this was no exception. Thank you once again.
I have been following Mrs. Court's fictions for sometime (ever since she started with fanfictions) and I have to say I've always been drawn to her writings. She has well developed characters with amazing plots. Virgin Dancer is not different to her previous works. It being a delicate sizzling-hot romantic adventure were true love wins no matter the circumstances. I only wish the book was longer because it left me wanting for more. But i guess that's what good writers do, they leave you hungry for more or that you cannot get enough.
