Erotic Historical Romance
Rating: 3 Cups
Lady Ruth Attwood has not led a life of leisure. When her mother passed away and a compromising position left her without references, Ruth took to becoming a courtesan in order to survive.
Baron Garrick Stratfield has a secret that he does not want anyone to know about. Pretending to have a long-time mistress seemed like the answer until she fell in love with someone else.
Ruth is devastated when her current protector leaves her for a younger woman. At the ripe age of forty-one, she knows her time as a courtesan will soon come to an end. Then Garrick comes up with the opportunity of a lifetime and it seems like the perfect plan. Then the reprehensible happens between a courtesan and her protector…one of them falls in love with the other.
Pleasure Me is a hot book with some very enticing scenarios within the pages. I really like how Ruth seems to know exactly what Garrick needs when it comes time for his lessons. The chemistry between the two main characters seems to crackle with energy and a vibrancy that you do not always see within a novel. The obstacles that Ruth and Garrick have to overcome are many and while it really helped the plot out, I was a little deterred by the trust issue which was not really solved until the last few pages. Overall, Ms. Burns has written a novel that is full of passion, danger, and two people who have overcome unbelievable hardships.
