To refuse him…my folly. To surrender…my sensual salvation.
I chafed at the bonds of servitude until he set me free.
I turned my back on all that I knew to follow him and found myself between two men -- master and student -- one whom I loved with my heart…the other with my body.
I understood, perhaps better than any, his needs.
I stoked the fires of his soul, the spark of his creativity -- he made me a legend. But never could I forget his searing touch….
Three transcendent tales of women bewitched by a master of seduction -- a slave as much to his art as to his boundless passion.« less
This book tells the story of three different women and each of them being painter Thomas Rodin's muses. The book is divided into 3 parts and each part is told by each woman's POV. You have Helen(the innocent),Sara(the upstart), and Grace (the courtesan).
I really didn't like the book because the "hero", Thomas, was very unlikable. He was very selfish, arrogant, and down right boorish to the women. He was just SO needy and mean that I just weat slap some sense into him. I also though the ending of the book came abruptly and Thomas declaration didn't seem genuine to me. Thomas's "change of heart" toward the end was so out of character for him that I have hard time believing that he will actually be faithful to the woman he chose in the end. I was just really unhappy with ending and hoped the author would have at least a epilogue but no suck luck.
