Grace Brisbane will do anything to save her family from poverty, even marry for money. But to catch the eye of a worldly noble, inexperienced Grace will need to learn the secrets of seduction. And who better to teach her than a man whose life is devoted to pleasure?
Alex Weston is the top attraction at Lavender Hills, the all-male brothel that caters to the desires of London’s most fashionable women. His beauty and sexual prowess are legendary, yet his seemingly charmed life masks an ugly truth. Alex is a prisoner in a gilded cage, blackmailed into service. He wants only freedom - until the night Grace Brisbane walks through his door.
With a single kiss, what was supposed to be a business arrangement explodes into a passion unlike any Alex has ever known…or Grace dreamed possible. But love between a lady and a whore can never be - can it?
"Brighton provides an original story line, well-developed characters, and a plot-full of perfect amounts of sexual intrigue, twists, and lulls that allow the atmosphere of 1860s England to develop." (Library Journal)

ENJOYABLE READ...FUNNY AND HEART WARMING
I did not read the print version of this book. I did, however, thoroughly enjoyed the audio version.
Both of the main characters stood out each in their own way. Their interactions with each other were great...funny, caring, romantic. Each character was strong, but , then again, each needed someone to count on and someone to care for them. they found that in each other.
It would have to depend on how bad I wanted to listen to the book. If there was one draw back in the listening of this book it was the narration. Underwood did not do a good job in distinguishing betwwen the male and female voices. In many dialogues I had a hard time telling just who was doing the talking because they sounded just like each other...not good when one was female and one was male.
Yes...most definitely. I had a hard time putting my Kindle down and doing other things...
Brighton id a great job in writing this novel. I look forward to reading more of her books and just hope that Audible will put more of them out there for all to enjoy.
The narrator ruined the experience
The narrator - she made the main character sound like a wimpy kid with no substance
The ending - Alex needed to resolve his issues
The story line was original - interesting
She made no effort to make Alex sound like a man or to give him any personality at all.
It needs a follow-up to finish off Alex's story but maybe the main character could be Patience. Maybe they all go to London for the season for Patience and Alex meets up with his brother again.
Just don't use Fiona Underwood as the narrator again
