Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Grace knows how to make readers blush! Caution: The sex in this book is both plentiful and scorching hot-oven mitts may be needed when turning the pages! " - RT Book Reviews

"This story had an exciting plot with some twists and turns, a cast of very colorful characters, some angst, a plethora of amazing and erotic sex and lastly a beautiful love story. Rita and Edward went through all kinds of kinky hell to get where they wanted to be....and I loved being on this journey with them! A great first read for me by K.D. Grace. Can not wait to get my hands on the next book in The Mount series, Fulfilling the Contract." - The SubClub Books

"This intriguing novel from Grace (Seven Deadly Sins; Body Temperature and Rising) involves love, mystery, luxury, and betrayal and features a strong story with even stronger depictions of sex. There's an admirable abundance of plot and porn (though the multiple instances of dubious consent might hinder enjoyment for some), and the plethora of sexual encounters, even at their raunchiest, become a bit repetitive. Overall, a top pick for hard-core erotica fans." - Library Journal

"Let me start off by stating that The Initiation of Ms. Holly is so hot I am still tingling a day after I finished reading this novel.

This spicy number will heat you up and keep you fully charged for days to come." - Coffee Time Romance

"" - To Each Their Own Reviews

"If you are looking for a smokin' hot story with a fun story line and a bit of suspense added into the mix, then I highly recommend you check out The Initiation of Ms Holly right away. " - Illustrious Illusions

Library Journal
01/01/2014
This novel is intense from the start, with a sexy rendezvous between strangers thrown into pitch darkness on a stalled London-bound train. Rita Holly gets the name and phone number of her mysterious lover, but she never sees his face. Edward asks her to meet him at the Mount, London's most exclusive club, with almost as many rumors to its name as elite clientele. Soon, Rita is thrown into an underground world of sex and sin that she never expected to enjoy. But when the journalist within her sees the perfect opportunity for a juicy exposé, it becomes an internal battle between playing the game for love and furthering her career. That is, if she can she see the initiation through to the end. A range of fetishes is explored, from tame spanking and leather play to human pets, but there remains a steady D/s element throughout. While most scenes will appeal to those into BDSM, there is a great deal of humiliation, and some of the interactions veer into gray areas regarding consent. VERDICT This intriguing novel from Grace (Seven Deadly Sins; Body Temperature and Rising) involves love, mystery, luxury, and betrayal and features a strong story with even stronger depictions of sex. There's an admirable abundance of plot and porn (though the multiple instances of dubious consent might hinder enjoyment for some), and the plethora of sexual encounters, even at their raunchiest, become a bit repetitive. Overall, a top pick for hard-core erotica fans.

Meet the Author

K D Grace believes Freud was right. In the end, it really IS all about sex, well sex and love. And nobody's happier about that than she, because otherwise, what would she write about? She lives in South England with her husband and the growing gang of hooligan birds who frequent their bird feeders. When K D isn't busy writing, she's busy digging in her ever-expanding veg garden or taking long walks in the British countryside. She finds inspiration outdoors in nature, and most of her best story ideas come to her while she's walking or gardening.

    I'm definitely a fan!

    This was my first reading experience with erotica! I was not disappointed at all! K.D. weaves a tale of mystery as she takes you through Miss Holly's experiences. As the plot evolves, the author manages to entwine erotic scenes with modern mythology. The story takes a surprising and entertaining twist toward to the end. This is a very satisfying and enjoyable story!

    Hot! Hot! Hot!

    Loved this book! If you enjoyed Anne Rice's Sleeping Beauty Trilogy, you will NOT be disappointed with this book. The author pulls you into each scene and defines each character so clearly that you need to be prepared to be "sucked in" for quite a while. Be sure to read this alone or not far away from a lover. :)

    Not a great story

    If you are looking for something romantic this is not the book for you. It isn't the best story either.
    However if you are looking for kinky and passion then this books fits the bill, even with a few impossible positions.
