    Good story and easy to read!

    My review:

    Taming Talia by Marie-Nicole Ryan was easy to read, well-written historical erotica novel and I read it in one sitting. Due to 188 pages it only took few hours.

    Taming Talia takes you back to the end of 1880s to the area which once was Mexican where you meet a freshly widowed Natalia Montrose who get a visitor. The visitor is very handsome man who offers her financial services, but she is much more interested in his body and what his body can offer. They are caught in by a snowstorm, so he cannot leave her house and they need to work together to survive the blizzard. Keeping each other warm is not the problem, but when Natalia finds out that the handsome visitor Jared is a Pinkerton agent investigating her murdering her husband, things get complicated.

    The story had an average plot, but it was overall enjoyable read with smart dialogue and captivating characters.

    There was one thing though which bothered me. Love came too quickly in this novel. I am well aware, that it is fiction, but when the main character is announcing the love to another only after one night, then I find it difficult to believe. Even when you think back to the time where the novel is set, I don't think love came after having sex couple of times. It can be lust, attraction, desire, liking another person, but love? Hard to buy. It felt awkward. And it doesn't matter how good the sex is, I still dare to doubt.

    If you need a solid erotic story, then Taming Talia is definitely recommended!
