Joseph Starling Jr. was in the right place at the right time. It didn’t take him long to discover his particular talent. He knew how to make a woman feel good. If she wasn’t screaming out his name, purring like a kitten or clawing at him like a lioness, he had failed. Mediocre was not a word in his vocabulary. Her enjoyment was so important to him that his own pleasure was a secondary concern.

Faith Graham was nothing like the women he was required to date as an escort—it was what he liked about her from the first time he saw her. She was imperfect and insecure. Her hair was a bit on the wild side, and her clothes were slightly rumpled. But her curves! They were alluring. She had curves where most of the elite clientele he mingled with had straight lines, and not an ounce of softness to be found. Shocking him to his core, she didn’t want anything to do with him.

Joe had always thought that working as an escort for Perfect Ten was a dream come true, but he was beginning to wonder if there was more to life than raking in the cash and having his pick of women on any given night. Could he start over with a new direction in life, or was he already at the age of twenty-six too jaded? Was there more out there for Joe Starling or was he destined to be a boy toy at the whim of any woman rich enough to afford him?

The Sins of a Few by Sarah Ballance

Saturday, October 18, 2014

The Sins of a Few
Sins of Salem #3

Sarah Ballance
Historical Romance
Pub date: Oct 13, 2014 (ARC review)

H/h - Nathaniel Abbott/Faith Downing
Setting: Salem, 1692.

Read in October, 2014.
My rating:

                                                       [spoiler alert]

Sarah Ballance’s Sins of Salem series has gotten better by the installment. As usual, I loved the setting and the story telling in The Sins of a Few. If only not for the h, Faith, I think I’d have a grand time cruising through the story.

The Sins of Salem series is set the backdrop of the disgraceful Salem Witch Trial and aftermaths that the inhabitants of Salem were left to endure. In all that chaos, love and the slow building of trust, became parts of the entire healing process for these people. I’ve heard of the witch trial before but it was only after I started this series that I was inspired to read and find out more about it; the trial, why it all begin, how people were executed without any option to defend themselves... even the supposed, more recent, haunting of the Salem Witch House. Entertaining when you watch those paranormal shows but no less sad when you think of those people who suffered so much.

Starlight by Isadora Rose

Saturday, October 11, 2014

Starlight (novella)

Isadora Rose
Historical Romance/Erotica
Published in 2012

H/h - Comte Tristan de Laurent/Esther Ellis
Setting: Regency(?).

Read in May/June, 2014.
My rating:

                                              [spoiler alert]

So, Starlight was my third book by Isadora Rose. Can’t say I was all that impressed.

A jaded Ton widow, who was emotionally abused by her deceased husband, starts an affair with an equally, if not more, jaded French Count, said to be one of the worst rakes out there at that time in the story. He was even rumored to have deflowered said Widow’s cousin and then, left her to fend for herself, making the Widow determined that she’d never give into his so-called ‘legendary charm’. Easier said than done I guess, so when they came together in a country house-party, they jumped into bed... like, in 2 days into the introduction. The Count was more up front about the affair, as in, he wanted to f*ck her, though the Widow played a little hard-to-get for a while. All of those 2 days (setting my eyes rolling).
