Publisher's Summary

Passion knows no status or wealth...."True, I am but a mere maidservant from a great house, snatched from a wretched existence of poverty and desperation to serve noblemen of wealth and privilege."And yet...."While I am indeed of lowly rank, I am also a young woman who allowed herself to sample life's greatest pleasures in the hands of these titled men. My tales overflow in this journal, penning my journey to becoming a woman of power of the most base, yet stimulating, breed."Unmarried and 20, yet betrothed to no man, I would be considered a spinster by most, yet this is of my own ardent intention. With my unabashed lushness and wisdom regarding a man's most vehement cravings, I am not lacking for suitors or proposals given in the heat of passion. No, I have yet to meet the man who will challenge me, satisfy me in all ways, not only of the flesh."For where passion and desire are fleeting, my heart continues to beat...."

I was really surprised at the depth of feeling, humor, and steaminess of this book. I read a lot of classic fiction and there were parts of this book that so reminded me of my favorites, Jane Eyre (the beginning) and Pride & Prejudice (relationship between the heroine & Mr Coven), etc. Only you get the benefit of seeing what may or may not have happened behind closed doors if the authors had been born in a time when you could be so bold as to describe it. It was sad and romantic and I laughed outloud a few times. It's a diary so there isn't always continuity but that is part of the charm. The narrator isnt dull. She does a great job with the diff voices and accents and gets really involved and enthusiastic during the love scenes. I was worried to buy this because of some of the reviews on audible but saw great reviews at Amazon. This was well worth it. It had a great ending and it will touch the romantic in you.

Excellent and sexy in the past storyline!!

Really enjoyed this booked. Could not stop listening. I enjoyed the descriptions of the steamy scenes as would be spoken many years ago.
If your looking for a steamy, yet passionate historical book about men and women's need for pleasure, give this a read!!!
