Breathtaking love story! Confessions of a Courtesan by Elizabeth Charles AKA Deborah Hale I am overwhelmed with emotions after haven read this breathless love story. I would give this book 7 stars but I am only allowed 5 stars! If you wish to read a beautiful story about a Courtesan who really lived and reigned as Queen of the Cyprians, then I strongly suggest this book. I always enjoy historical romance and this one was a real delight to discover. You will fall in love with her main character Elizabeth Bridget Cane AKA Mrs. Armistead. All events and details are based on her true story. I also loved her second character Charles Fox. Ms. Hale very well documented the facts concerning the lives of young women who became prostitutes, mistresses and famous courtesans. She used words that flew on the pages and I simply could not put it down. I loved the time period. I wanted to know more about Elizabeth and the men that had influenced her during her life. Ms. Hale is a high quality writer that I highly recommend reading her other books. Story filled with beautiful emotions!

I didn't hate this book and I didn't love this book. It was true to the title, but I just couldn't get into the story after the first 50 pages and then again at the end.

Loved the book. It was one of those you can't put down. Characters were rich, personable, and flawed to the point they become friends to the reader.
