    clever erotic tale

    The taxi that she rides in as a passenger traveling the icy roads of Manhattan crashes leaving Erika Holland in a coma. Her last conscious thought focuses on the smiling face of friend Stuart Dunlap. <P>In her comatose state Erika thinks back to how she became a Manhattan call girl catering to the wealthy, promoted to a Madam, and eventually CEO of Courtesans, Inc. Erika was a contented spouse whose husband deserted her for Europe and his younger assistant. He threatened to cut Erika off from even child support if she failed to tow the mark. Innocently at first Erika found pleasuring men a delight that also brought in income. Though she can have almost any upper class male she chooses (for an evening) all Erika craves most in the world are the love of her daughter who hates and scorns her, and a smiling individual who deserves better than a fortyish hooker. She has neither as she lies in the coma. <P>As expected by an erotic tale, profanity and graphic sex scenes are as prolific as some of the charcaters are promiscuous. The story line is told in alternating dialogue, yet much of the plot is a cleverly designed first person account as the audience sees the ¿flashback¿ events through the relative eyes of Erika, an enlightened and delightful protagonist. Though the males seem so easily embracing prostitution to the point of matrimony and marriage proposals, readers will gain much pleasure (reading silly) from the entertaining The Price of Pleasure. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Easy Reading

    I think this book is fabulous. When I bought the book I wasn't sure I was going to like it. It is easy reading and you will like Ericka for the person she is. I feel her frustration over the relationship she has with her daughter. Buy the book, you will love it.
