Quite bad actually, I did not finish it.
The Queen of American Erotic Romance blends the heated sensuality of the finest Victorian erotic novels with the suspense and chilling aura of an Anne Rice tale.
I almost kept this book for its lovely, sexy cover of a barebacked lady with upswept auburn hair having her dress tenderly and carefully undone by a good-looking guy. On the back cover she looks like Geena Davis! This is a typically sexy Thea Devine novel, which starts off in London in Victorian times. Somehow the hero and heroine end up in a harem, fleeing from evil, cannibalistic people. But the point is, as always with Devine, the sex. This couple goes at it every which way, every few pages. Sometimes while being watched by an audience. But they do, ah, come to love each other between fleeing from the baddies and giving exhibitions of their prowess. Good old Thea Devine!
This book started out confusing and disapointing but by the end I was reading like crazy to see how it all worked out. Not sure I would read this author again though, not really to my taste. Characters were shallow and I esp didn't like the passion slave giving into the male character all the time.
really bizarre. at first i had no clue what the heck was going on, but as the book progressed i kind of figured it out. the characters could have been a bit better. i had a hard time liking either of them. i think its just too far out of my normal reading selection.

Not your usual blip-blap love story. Intriguing plot I conclude.
Its erotic for goodness sake! Nevertheless, the sex byplay turned me on. For people who appreciates lusty words to turn them on, try this. Very sensual and insatiably gratifying.
Just like how erotic story should be. Climax!!!
From the back cover...
The working girl..
She was everything a man wanted a woman to be-voluptuous, beautiful, mysterious. Yet she was nothing a gentleman would ever consider-penniless, low-born, and forced to work for her living in ways a lady could never imagine.
He was titled, wealthy, and exceedingly worldly. A man who could have anything and any woman he wanted...until he saw her in a place where no woman should have been.
Now, in the face of a terrifying and deadly secret, they must forge an intimacy that takes them beyond the edge of soul-searing desire-at the risk of everything...even their lives.
