SINFUL IN SATIN
Mass Market Paperback
Rating: 4 cups
The beautiful Celia is the daughter of an infamous courtesan. Her mother assumed she would be following in her footsteps, but Celia had other plans. Her mother’s death is going to cause huge changes in her life.
The mysterious Jonathan is a tenant in Celia’s mother’s house. He is obviously well bred and very handsome in a dangerous sort of way.
Celia has done her best not to end up in the same profession as her mother. She is well trained but not experienced in the erotic arts, and wants no part of that life. Her mother’s death and the massive debt she left behind may take away her choice. Then there is the mysterious Jonathan Albrighton, who claims to be her mother’s attic tenant. He is sticking uncommonly close to her for reasons known only to himself.
Madeline Hunter always writes excellent historical tales usually from a slightly different perspective than the norm and this book is no exception. Celia is the illegitimate daughter of a member of the aristocracy and a well known courtesan. She is not interested in that profession for herself and has made her own life in a more respectable way. Jonathan himself is of mysterious origins. The plot sucked me in and kept me interested until the very last page. It has everything necessary for a great romance: a heroine in difficult circumstances, a mysterious hero, an exciting mystery, at least one villain, and suspenseful action and love scenes.
