Overview

Every indiscretion has its price…

Cassandra Willows has made a name for herself as one of London's most sought-after seamstresses—and as the creator of intimate "toys" much beloved in the bed chambers of elite ladies and lords. But her success cannot soothe her guilt and pain over a most devastating betrayal.

Nathan Manning, Earl of Blackhearth, will never forgive the exquisite Cassandra for abandoning him without a word on the day they were to elope. Now he is back in London and hungry for revenge. Armed with scandalous, provocative memories, the handsome, vengeful nobleman blackmails his former lover into a most illicit affair...and reignites the raging fire that once consumed them both.

But by losing themselves in the throes of erotic ecstasy reborn, Nathan and Cassandra are courting gravest danger—vulnerable to a past that threatens to destroy their lives and passion still; at risk from dark, unspoken secrets that are shockingly, perilously...taboo.

    Jess Michaels Does It Again!!!!

    The writing was very vivid and erotic. I loved the slant the story took. Very unexpected. All her books take a perspective you don't always see. I would read it again in a heartbeat!

    Taboo.

    Excellent erotica reading. It had a great, romantic and sometimes suspensful story and really kept me reading into the night. An overall good read.

    This erotic historical romance is an engaging tale

    Cassandra Willows was to secretly meet Lord Nathan Manning for a tryst that both looked forward to. However, she failed to show up disappointing the aristocrat. Hurt to his core, soon afterward he left for India without knowing why she rejected him after seeming so agreeable.----------

    Years later, the Earl has returned home to England while Cass has become in among the wealthy for her sexy scintillating garments that the aristocrats buy for their mistresses. Meanwhile Nathan seeks a wife and subsequently an heir, but it is Cassandra he wants and Cass he will have. Whatever reason she had for denying them then, he will overcome using every trick in the book and a TABOO or two that are outside the lovers' tome. ------------------

    This erotic historical romance is an engaging tale due to the lead protagonists. Nathan knows he must marry a suitable lady to sire and heir and a spare, but he only desires Cass. She has found a way to economically survive without a male protector, but never forgot the one that got away. Interestingly the prodigal son seems cold and aloof upon his return, but Cass heats his blood rather quickly as each wants SOMETHING RECKLESS tasting EVERYTHING FORBIDDEN in their love for one another.--------

    Cassandra is seamstress to the ton. She also makes sex toys




    Cassandra is seamstress to the ton. She also makes sex toys for their husbands and lovers. Nathan Manning comes back from India and her past. His anger at her for leaving him waiting at their elopement causes him to blackmail her into a sexual relationship as he looks for a bride.

    I loved these characters. I wanted to knock Nathan upside the head for his obstinacy and anger against Cassandra. I loved Cassandra's patience. She knows why she did not show up but refuses to tell him for several reasons. The sex was hot! I loved how Cassandra's toys were used between them. The feelings behind that hotness remained true through the years they were apart. On Cassandra's part the love had deepened. Nathan had to learn what real love was. He also had to learn that all is not what he thought and that he had much to learn.

    I plan on reading more of Jess Michaels. I enjoy her stories. I also loved the cover on Taboo.
