Publisher's Summary

After her husband's death, Elizabeth Ashton knows she must remarry - and fast. But not just any man will do. She must find Lord Ashton’s long-lost bastard nephew and convince him to wed, cementing his claim to the family fortune and rescuing Elizabeth from certain ruin. Her desperate search will reveal a world she never knew existed - and a love she never dreamed possible.
Forced into prostitution to protect his darkest secret, Gideon spends his days pleasuring London's wealthiest women. Only one hope burns inside his guarded heart: that someday he will escape the gilded confines of Lady Lavender's brothel and reclaim his freedom. When a widow hires him for a two-week-long seduction at her country estate, he spies his chance - never imagining the young beauty will reawaken a passion he thought long dead.
Bound by desire, only together are they strong enough to face their enemies - and to claim the promise of love.

Mmmmm & WOW - IT WAS JUST SOOO FINGER LICKING GOOD

I loved, loved, loved this latest awesome offering from LB whose Seduction series tells the unwilling servitude that Lady Lavender's captive male prostitutes endure at her hands during Victorian England and the lengths they go to in order to break free from her greedy grasp.

Elizabeth is a Lady with a big heart, and an Heiress, and she's on a mission - to rescue Gideon, a handsome charismatic brute and Scottish rogue from his gilded cage at Lavender Hills where he has been 'used' and abused for years but unfortunately this has made him a bitter tortured soul whose memories of his life before only adds to his lonliness. Elizabeth's got the perfect plan and, in her mind, it's so simple - get him home, seduce him, tell him a few 'part truths' then marry him....... but alas nothing quite goes according to plan and the question is will love be enough to save them both?

It was such a tender, touching story that had many plot twists, surprises and "well I didn't see that coming" moments that I was just hooked from the start and became an all too willing bystander as the riveting mysteries were revealed petal by delicious petal. Then, as it slowly unfolds it becomes a passionate, sexy, sensuous, romantic, gritty, funny and gripping account of 2 people's hopes, dreams and desires as their fight against all the odds (and some ruthless sinister characters) finally leads them to trust and to love again.

Worth a credit? It definitely would have been but because it falls under my $10 rule I just bought it but I can't believe you can get such an entertaining and enjoyable listen that lasts for over 10.5 hours at the giveaway price of $9.79 so thank you Audible - and, of course, the gifted imagination of Lori Brighton.

Not Horrible, Just Not Great

I give the author here some credit for at least attempting to create a romance story that is somewhat different. I've read many where the heroine in the book is a prostitute, but haven't read many where the hero is a prostitute. So, the story, with that little twist, started out very promising.

Unfortunately, the rest of the book did not live up to the promise. The book was a bit boring. The plot was really slow, and I found myself skimming quite a bit. The sex scenes were really long and drawn out, and just not very sexy. At least not for me. There was supposedly a plot twist at the end, but instead of making the book better, it was really unnecessary and confusing. Like it was only thrown in there because the author wanted some kind of a plot twist. I get that, but the plot twist has to make sense within the story, and turn the story around or make the characters see something they hadn't before. This plot twist did none of that. Like I said, it was unnecessary.
