The Courtesan’s Book of Secrets is a regency romance packed with intrigue, suspense and a whole lot of heart break. Rafe and Cornelia are ex-lovers and gambling partners, but they are both convinced that the other abandoned them back in Paris. The inseparable pair were torn apart by more nefarious means, and each have since fallen on hard times. They desperately need to find the register of a now dead courtesan if they want to secure their families’ safety. To find the register, though, they’ll need to trust each other, something that doesn’t come easily to these gamblers.

Rafe taught Cornelia everything she knows, but she’s since become an independent woman. She doesn’t trust anyone, especially not Rafe, and is convinced she can use the register to save her brother, but more dangerous forces make it clear this isn’t a game she can play alone. Rafe knows that Cornelia can handle almost everything, but despite their history, he can’t let her be hurt. He needs the register for himself, but protecting Cornelia becomes his top priority. One of my favorite things about this couple was that their romance, and even friendship, is one of such mutual respect. They might not trust each other, but they respect and admire each other completely.

There’s also no denying that these two still love each other, despite their past of betrayal, and their sexual tension is burning hot. While I tend to prefer romances which begin with the meeting of the hero and heroine, the history of these two made this ex-lovers storyline completely heartbreaking. Throughout the story it’s clear that both Rafe and Cornelia know they love each other, know they want each other, but they also know they cannot be together.

When I started reading, I was in despair because I had just finished a total disaster of a book & thought this was another disaster. The beginning was much too slow & tedious but finally got redeemed with the discovery of the register & the fire. Touching & sweet ending.

I had not read any of Georgie Lee’s books but, when she was featured on fellow author, Ella Quinn’s blog recently, I was intrigued by the premise of her latest book, The Courtesan’s Book of Secrets and added it to my list of books I definitely wanted to read. So I was delighted when Ms Lee asked if I would like to read and review the book and it certainly didn’t disappoint.

This was such a compelling story and I felt a real empathy for Rafe and Cornelia. During their years together, it was obvious that they had fallen in love, although they never admitted it to each other. Cornelia believed that to Rafe she was nothing more than his gambling partner and someone to warm his bed. Rafe felt he had nothing to offer Cornelia other than a future of unpredictable card games and rundown lodgings. The anger and bitterness over their perceived betrayal of each other is so evident in their stinging exchanges when they meet at Lady Daltmouth’s ball, but they cannot deny the feelings they still arouse in each other. I love how, despite everything that has happened, Rafe is still kind and protective towards Cornelia.

They both needed to find the book to protect those they love. When Rafe discovered that his father was a traitor, selling secrets to the French, he knows that, unless he can locate the book and destroy the evidence, all his lands will be seized. He loves his mother too much to see her reduced to poverty and degradation. How could I not adore a hero who cares so much for his mother? Cornelia is willing to do anything to protect her half-brother Andrew, even resort to blackmail.

I like how Rafe’s small acts of kindness to Miss Allen and her son and to Monsieur Fournier have greater significance later in the story.

The Courtesan's Book of Secrets is a great read that kept me entertained. It didn't take me long to finish this story and I was thrilled of how the story turned out. Cornelia and Rafe have a history with each other but they parted on bad terms. Rafe thought Cornelia up and left him to marry someone else because he wasn't good enough, and Cornelia received a letter thinking it was from Rafe, that basically said he was ending their partnership. Well, they were both deceived and nothing is how it appears. They meet again and team up to possess an infamous register. This register is the answer to many of there problems, but first they have to get it back from whoever stole it. I loved this story and will be checking out other titles from Georgie Lee.

If you love historical romances, I recommend you THE COURTESAN'S BOOK OF SECRETS, written by Georgie Lee. The intrigue kept my interest till the end! I liked the characters in this suspense, Rafe and Cornelia. They, once, had lived a relation together, but events separated them; until they meet again. This story was fun to read! Will they get a second chance? Rafe and Cornelia were charming and nicely blended into this intrigue filled with twists and turns, as they search for the mysterious courtesan's black book! Their teaming-up might just be the answer! Beautiful love story! This is the first book that I read by Ms. Lee and I was not disappointed!
