Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This lively book collects three well-matched historical romance novellas set in England. In Henley's "Beauty and the Brute," high-born teens Charles and Sarah are wedded to settle Charles's father's gambling debts. Mortal enemies on their wedding day, they part for three years, only to reunite as strangers and experience unexpected passion. In Pearce's "How to Seduce a Wife," prim young Louisa March yearns to feel pleasure in the bedroom. Her husband, Nicholas, wants to help her, but doesn't know how. Could a Mayfair madam help them? In Robinson's delicious "Not Quite a Courtesan," a young heiress gets far more than she bargains for when she marries into a family of swindlers short on cash but long on charm. Readers will float away on the literary flair of these escapist tales, each touched with just the right amount of eroticism. (Dec.)

I had high hopes for this book, but it just did not deliver. The first story was the wost romance I've ever read and was written like a preschooler would write. The other books were OK, but definitely not page turners. For real romance look at Hannah Howell books.

"Lords of Passion" offers three delightfully decadent novellas from a trio of outstanding historical erotic romance authors. In Virginia Henley's "Beauty and the Brute", an arranged marriage contract between two entitled teens later becomes a passionate duel of minds and bodies. "How To Seduce A Wife" By Kate Pearce is a lesson in adventuresome sensuality, in which the seducer husband learns as much as his wifely pupil. My favorite of the three is "Not Quite a Courtesan" by Maggie Robinson. Proper Prudence Thorne meets decadent Darius Shaw, and as she sheds her inhibitions one by one, she entwines her worldly rogue in a trap of his own making. These three Lords are passionate, provocative, and pleasurable, indeed! Prepare to be entertained, and let your fantasies take you where they may. With luck, you will encounter your very own passionate provocateur!
