Set in a vague fantasy world, Pleasure and Purpose consists of three novellas. Each of them centered around a member of the Order of Solace. A place where women are trained to bring a person to complete solace. According to their religious beliefs, each time they bring a person to complete solace another arrow fills the quiver, bringing the Holy Family one step closer to returning to the land once again.--- Pleasure and Purpose is based around three friends. For years they've been the best of boon companions, enjoying the sins of the flesh, indulging in drink and drugs, but then tragedy strikes and their lives are forever changed.--- In the first novella, Stillness is sent to Edward. Guilt has been riding him for years since the night of the terrible accident. He hopes to find solace with her, and who better than the handmaiden called Stillness to still the guilt that has consumed him. This one was the hottest of the three. A little menage action in this one.--- The second is Honesty. Honesty is requested by the Prince, Cillian. He has seen what the handmaiden Stillness did for his estranged friend Edward and wants that too. Because within him lies pain from the loss of his friend as well as the unfortunate event years ago. He is spoiled, and with Honesty she opens his eyes, causing him to be honest with himself and to see that his way of life isn't what he truly wants.--- The handmaiden Determinata is requested by both Edward and Cillian for their lost friend Alaric. He wasn't directly affected by the event that took place years ago with Cillian and Edward, but indirectly, he's been affected. Now a woman has caused him to hit rock bottom, but with the help of one very determined handmaiden named Determinata, Alaric is soon on his way to recovery and acceptance of himself. You see Alaric is Submissive and Mina is a Dominant, and together they are perfect!--- I loved the way this book was put together. Even though it was three novellas, it felt like one story with three happily ever afters. You can't get much better than that! I've read a few of Megan Hart's Spice books, and I find them to be extremely emotional, but Pleasure and Purpose did not have that intensity. Which was perfect because it allows you to enjoy the eroticism that fills nearly every page! The emotional level may be turned down in this one, but the heat level is near scorching.--- I am very much looking forward to reading No Greater Pleasure next month!

A must read. I love the way that Megan Hart takes the other "unimportant" characters and makes them the main charaters in her other books. It is great!!!

I like Megan Hart's style and this was great. The stories flowed nicely and I can't wait for the next book. A little solace is what we all need.

I loved this book. I enjoyed each novella. I now forgive the author (Megan Hart) for my gravely disappointing read "Deeper". I enjoyed going back in time; and I usually read contemporary novels with the except of the paranormal genre. I think this book enchanting and a great escape. I can't wait to read the next book in the series...I hope to confirm my preassumed ending for Mina and Alaric. I will be counting down the days and I have at least one hundred books in my personal library to waiting for my read. I read at least 3 books a week. The eroticism / sex are secondary to these tales laced with D&M. It's 3 novellas but flow as one story continuing to the next. I think is my favorite tale by Megan Hart. This book I will keep in my library. Don't hesitate BUY BUY BUY.

"Stillness". The Handmaidens of the Order of Solace send Stillness to provide comfort to Edward who is overcome by guilt and remorse for what he did to friends and family. She realizes what a handmaiden provides normally will not be enough to fulfill his need; to do that she must show him that even he can receive love, but for her to offer her love means leaving the Order and its five guiding principles. "Honesty". The handmaiden knows it is time to move on from the Order she has served in for years. She agrees to take on one last needy client. Spoiled Prince Cillian expects everyone to obey his commands though he insists he wants what Edward has, but Honesty plans to show him that love is greater than obedience. "Determinata". Alaric has become an uncaring person even failing to care for himself as he turns to drugs and sex to hide his pain. His friends Edward and Cillian are worried about him. Dominant Handmaiden Determinata is sent to mend his broken heart and end his depression by dominating this submissive These three enjoyable erotic romances are entertaining Order of Solace tales, but as one expects from Megan Hart also contain strong characters and intriguing somewhat interrelated plots DEEPER than what one would expect of sub-genre novellas.
