Overview

With her stunning beauty and impeccable reputation, Lady Eleanor Beckett is a society darling to emulate. But Eleanor’s seemingly perfect life is marred by a dark secret. Determined to know happiness and passion just once, she travels to the infamous Lavender Hills Estate, a brothel that caters to women. There, she meets strikingly handsome and completely inappropriate James McKinnon, a man who may be just what she needs to melt the ice surrounding her broken heart.

Affable and handsome, popular escort James found the path out of crippling poverty through Lavender Hills, and supports his mother and sister with the money he makes from his work. He’s never cared for a client before — caring interferes with business — but finds himself falling for Eleanor.

Eleanor and James can’t extinguish the passion they’ve ignited — but society would never accept a relationship between a whore and a lady. Will their forbidden love and dark pasts destroy everything they care about — including each other?

Meet the Author

As a child, Lori Brighton relished the thought of a life filled with adventure in far-off places. Determined to become an archaeologist, she earned a degree in anthropology — only to discover that digging in the dirt beneath the punishing sun wasn’t much fun. She packed up her love of history and took a job in an air-conditioned museum, yet still her thirst for adventure wasn’t satisfied. And so she began to write, bringing the people in her imagination to life on the printed page. With her debut novel Wild Heart, she finally married her loves of history and adventure. Today she is the author of more than a half-dozen historical romance, paranormal romance, and young-adult novels.

    To Please a Lady is a complex, intriguing, and sometimes heartbreaking story of two people dealing with issues of abuse, self-image, love and forgiveness.

    To Please a Lady is actually the last in a series about three men who were blackmailed into prostitution by Lady Lavender and if you have an interest in reading the others, I’d recommend waiting on this one. The whys of their situation come out in this finale and it could possibly affect the way you read the series, but I don’t know that for sure. I haven’t read To Seduce an Earl or To Capture a Rake so I don’t know how much of the details that are shared in this book have already played out in the others. So, with that warning, let me tell you that I did enjoy this book although I think I might have liked it more if it hadn’t been the only one I’d read. There are a lot of statements made about the other men and I think I might have missed out on some of the nuances since I didn’t know their story. Apart from that though, James and Ellie’s story was very entertaining.

    This will be a tricky review to post. It will be hard as there are so many ways that can't be explained without a spoiler. I'll start by saying that I see this book as a reverse romance story. You will see how just after the beginning of the book. There is the abused wife. Then comes a hidden romance that goes to blazes when it is uncovered. This was a difficult book for me to read. This story sucked me in and would not let me go. When I wasn't able to read I would be rethinking what I had already read. It is a dark romance and I have to say it's an Adult book and not necessarily because of sex. I would recommend this book to you but just remember it will pull you in.
