Master of Her Virtue is the twenty-third stand-alone romance by Australian author, Miranda Lee. For some perfectly valid reasons, Violet Green is still a virgin at twenty-five. But after a close call with death just after Christmas, Violet makes a New Year’s resolution to change all that by the following New Year. Accepting an invitation to her boss, Henry’s New Year’s Eve party is just the first step. When Henry’s twice-divorced son, Leo attaches himself to Violet, she’s incredulous. Leo Wolfe is wealthy and very attractive, and somehow, Violet finds herself convincing him to help her change her virgin status. This romance has a charming hero, a feisty heroine and some hot love scenes. Very enjoyable.

I'm a huge ML fan. She's basically an automatic buy for me. That means that I'm very tuned to her formula for romances. They typically involve a girl who decides to take a walk on the wild side because she's been living a sheltered life because of her financial situation, sick family member, or longterm relationship. She then meets the Hero, who is basically a jaded man of the world which broken hearts following behind him. She dives head first into a sexual relationship with him believing that this will satisfy her. At some point, either because she's pregnant or embarassed by how people are treating her, she will decide that she isn't tuly satisfied with just a physical relationship and that the Hero is too jaded for her taste. She will attempt to leave him and he will blindsided by her feelings and confess his undying love. Depending on how much psychoanalyzing the girl does (sometimes it gets a bit much) I can close the book with a satisfied feeling. What went wrong here, you ask? Well where do I start? Was it the female lead's obsession with her acne to the point of neurosis? It made her come off as more than a little shallow at times. I have friends with serious acne who take meds and had to go off those meds when they got pregnant. It wasn't that big a deal. The idea that everyone has to know you are in a physical relationship with someone and approve of it seemed a little immature. She a grown woman who seemed to relatively intelligent and even though she supposedly didn't have a relationshp with her family they kept popping up in the story at weird times. The totally contrived mild bondage scene which the author wrote was extremely awkward for me to read because clearly the female lead wasn't interested and this only backed up later when she says she wouldn't really be interested in doing it again and really prefers the intimacy of the missionary position (which apparently isn't very missionary at all!). The fact they felt the need to throw that in says something. Especially when I'm not familar with her books having any scenes like that previously. Finally, at one point during the "i'm leaving you...don't go" scene...the female lead loses her damn mind. She goes into the bathroom and has a breakdown. She spends an hour cursing the Hero and saying how he's taken advantage of her and manipulated her and works herself into a real lather. Then she finally goes into a full rage at him. I couldn't help but go WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT! She has practically chased this man down to have sex with her and HE'S TAKING ADVANTAGE OF HER?!?!? Mature adult women take responsibilities for their actions. They don't blame people for not going along with their HIDDEN agenda. The only thing I felt ML did right was how she managed to weave a long distance relationship that involved a lot of communication into the plot. Too often authors cram all the relationship development into 1-2 weeks that vaguely refer to in one paragraph. I can only hope that this is not the future of ML's writing.
