    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    Well. I wasn’t expecting this to be a book I would really enjoy. While I like steamy romance novels, this one was WAY beyond steamy and I still REALLY enjoyed this! Olivia Waite has a beautiful writing talent and one that I would love to read more work by. She instantly drew me in and took me a wonderful whirl wind ride in this short novella.

    A historical novella through and through, with Mill being married off to a man she doesn’t love, and turning to live life in a brothel as tainted lady. I could just see the brothel rise before my eyes. Wow! And Jasper…..oh my! I would LOVE to have a Jasper in my life! Jasper and Mill hit it off instantly. The passion and sparks that flew between them was absolutely mind blowing. A tale of love being found in the most unexpected places, Jasper and Mill will touch your heart and pull you into the erotic ride of a passion filled night full of steam.

    I would definitely recommend this novella to all who enjoy a good, HOT, steamy romance story. It’s a quick, enjoyable ride and full of some laughable moments, too. Definitely a 4 star book in this reader’s opinion! I can’t wait to read more Olivia Waite work!

    Interesting Read

    A one night stand leads to love. This story is listed as a Regency Historical and is set in England. The heroine is brave, forthright and practical. The hero is sensual, sensitive and painstaking. They are sympathetic characters that are easy to relate to.

    First we meet the heroine and her brother over kippers for breakfast. Then we take a trip to a brothel where the hero engages in sex with a woman who is not the heroine. The hero and heroine meet and talk for the first time on page twenty-three. The heroine seems mostly resigned to about peddling her virginity. For a Regency miss, she seems very keen to engage in sex and even anal sex with a man who is basically a stranger. She's cucumber cool for the most part and even becomes the aggressor at some points. The hero is a perfect and considerate lover. The hero wants her on first sight and thinks she is something extraordinary. He knows just what the heroine will like and gives it to her without conflict between them. The sex is plentiful and sexily written.

    There's no true interpersonal conflict between the hero and heroine. They mesh sexually and emotionally from the start. The conflict comes from external forces, from the man who wants to marry the heroine. This villain is drawn to be repulsive and selfish. Also the heroine's brother, a selfish and weak man, provides some minor conflict in the course of the story. Both villains are dealt with in a way that is satisfying.

    A light, sexy story about a one night stand that goes off without a hitch and gives birth to true love.
