Short description from goodread :

 Seeking sexual excitement and conquest, poor but beautiful Beth seduces wealthy merchant prince Grey Sexton, only to find herself the pursued as he seeks to own her body and soul.

Flouting the moral standards of Jeffersonian America, temptress Beth McConnell lets no man touch her heart. Her motto is love them once and leave them burning.

But when she boldly seduces Grey Sexton, a self-controlled merchant prince from New York, she finds herself too fascinated by his ice-over-fire nature to stay away. His possessive determination to own her, body and soul, threatens to expose her secret erotic life to public shame.

But Beth will only surrender her love to a man she can trust. And Grey's materialistic approach to relationships leaves her little reason to believe he can ever give her what she truly needs.

For these two cynical yet lonely people, can deep sexual intimacy work a miracle and lead to the opening of their hearts?

My opinion:

          Great novella, I really like the writing style of Natasha Blackthorne very dynamic and moving. Now at first I saw this book as an historical romance with an erotic touch but after reading it I think it’s preferable to say it’s a erotic story that takes place in the past like a historical romance^^, small detail but really important one.

The story takes place in America, Philadelphia to be more precise and I liked this change of scenery because a lot of the historical romances I’ve read so far are set in England and I wanted something different.

The characters did amuse me, Beth is determined, having been hurt she wants to turn the tables and be the seductress now however she forgot that it’s a dangerous game and feelings can’t be so easily controlled. Grey irritates her but captivates her too so well that she changes her rules and accept to see him more than once but still wants to keep her independence. She is experimented, young and strong willed far from the naïve girl we are often confronted to in the historical romance.
Grey has lived a life where he kept mistresses, took care of them but doesn’t form any attachment, feelings to them. For him it’s like a contract. Beth surprises him she is bold but still keeps something innocent about her that’s not faked. Attracted, he decides that he will keep her so that she doesn’t go to some else and are always available for him. He couldn’t imagine that one sane woman could say no to his generous offer, but Beth did and now he must understand what he is feeling and what he is ready to sacrifice.

It’s short yes, a bit normal since it’s a novella not a full book but I spend a great time when I wasn’t blushing because it’s really not for a public under 18years. The erotic part are numerous, exceptionally well written and really hot. Perhaps even a bit too much for me.

To recommend for the lover of historical romances who wants something hot!

Score:  3,5/5
