    What are my chances that I will like this...

    Helen Mansfield’s reckless brother has done the unthinkable, gambling away his sister’s chastity to save his family’s estate. When Helen visits the lodgings of the gentleman who has won her, hoping to make him see reason, she interrupts a carnal scene as outrageous as it is erotic. Luke Westmoreland, the illegitimate son of a duke, is clearly a rogue…and he’s also the most wildly attractive man she has ever met. He offers Helen a new bargain that will give her one more year in her home. But their daily meetings quickly become sizzling lessons in wanton desire…

    Once branded a smuggler and thief, Luke Westmoreland is now hailed a hero, thanks to an act of bravery at sea. Although he has taken full advantage of the women his fame has enticed, none of the strumpets lining up to share his bed has intrigued Luke as much as beautiful, spirited Helen. Their trysts are abandoned, sensual adventures that deepen into a love neither dares to admit—until another man’s twisted obsession places Helen in danger…

    I have disliked her last two (well not that last last one cuz I haven't read that one). I so wasn't going to get this. Really. I have no power over the purple!

    le sigh... I think candy explains it here. I have no shame and will prolly kick myself later.


    1. I read one novel by Holt and that was enough to cure me. Although she had a story in the Burning Up anthology that didn't annoy me. It was totally wallpaper historical - but it didn't annoy me LOL

    2. I liked her first two books, but literally in that order, and the third was downright problemic (lots of skimming). I missed the next couple of releases, then bought the last--which as a DNF. Erotic historicals (a la Lisa Valdez, Emma Holly, Robin Schone, Pam Rosenthal, Carolyn Jewel) are my absolute favourites, so I was disappointed CH didn't work out for me.

    4. I gave in and pre-ordered this book eventhough Holt's previous books were duds. Its hard to let go of an author who used to be a favorite.

    5. I've only read one of her was okay. I haven't been able to make myself try again. If it ends up being good, let us know.

      Too many good books, too little time!

    6. Oh - it is a pretty cover, though. :o)

    7. I liked her first couple of books, but I think she basically writes the same story in all her books.

      Her heroines are uncannily alike too.
