The lovely Julia Freemont, destitute and disgraced after her father gambled away the family fortune and ended his own life, would rather be a wealthy man's mistress than live in proverty. Rich and handsome Brandon Barringer has long admired Julia from afar, but she never gave him the time of day as long as she was riding high on the tides of the upper class. Now the tables have turned, and julia has approached Brandon to ask for his help--in a return for her personal favors. Brandon agrees, but one condition. He will teach her to fully appreciate the subtleties of the senses, before they embark into carnal satisfaction.
New author, great book.
This book follows a pretty typical plot line. Guy likes girl, girl disses guy, then falls on hard times and realizes he is a pretty good catch. Offers to be his mistress. Hot and steamy sex scences while he is teaching her to be his mistress (train her in all the senses). Then, of course, she realizes she has fallen in love with the man who has agreed to keep her as his mistress. Some more wild and crazy sex and then he realizes he can not live without her by his side---this time as a wife, not a mistress. I was kind of suprised at the book. Most books treat mistresses as people that are hidden. She is not and his friends accept her. There is a bit of a mystery involved as well. It is the typical someone is trying to kill him (it's kind of easy to figure out who). All in all, it is a good book and I do look forward to reading more by this author but I wish she would have focused a bit less on the sex scenes. I was a bit embarrased at times and that is hard to do! LOL
good story about a lady who offers to be a mistress to a wealthy man after her father gambles away the the family fortune and commits suicide.
