This was fun and interesting plot. A change from your normal historical romance. It really pulls you in and has you wanting to cheer, cry, and laugh. I would like to see more like this one from this author.

This has got to be the most boring book ever. The plot was unique however the story itself was really bland. The characters were too plain and their foul language totally turned me off.

After reading the reviews from other readers I was under the impression that Susan Johnson wrote great romance books with steamy, erotic love scenes. Definately not so in this one. I found nothing hot or descriptive about any of the scenes in this book. They were . . . somewhat boring. I also thought the use of certain words took away from the romance part of the book. The character development was horrible in my mind. Isabella starts out as innocent, but knowing the way the world works. All of a sudden, she's acting like a 'loose woman' with a dirty mouth. All in all, not a book worth buying.

I have read more than my share of romance novels and had been told Susan Johnson writes more erotically than most of her peers. I have to say that this is the first novel I have read that used profanity, and dirty sex talk between main characters. I am used to the 'f' word in movies but the 'c' word is unacceptable. I am not a prude - I was just surprised. Usually a sex scene is more widening eyes and heaving bosooms and other euphamisms for body parts and sex acts. While this book was definitely more graphic, I felt that the time period the book was set in did not mix well with the graphic nature of the sex scenes. The plot has been recycled from so many other regency style romance novels. I usually circulate my books among friends but this one is going to have to have a warning label first.

it was a good book that i liked to read. but i dont think it was very romantic. it lacked tender love. which i personaly like the best. but hey buy the book and see for your self. its worth the 5 bucks or so. it did hold my attention for the whole book. it did not have the usual parts that most would like to skip. go buy the book and find out how it ends -melissa

Isabella Leslie had just come into her fortune only a few hours before when her greedy relatives tried to marry her off to her cousin 'Fat Harold'. She literally ran into the rainy night to save herself..and straight into Molly's brothel! There she found a new life long friend who was wise in the ways Izzy was not. Isabella only wanted her independence. Together, they decided Elizabeth should become publically ruined so no one would want her as a wife. Enter Dermott!

Dermott Ramsay, the earl of Bathurst, had seen the woman rush into Molly's business establishment and wanted her immediately. That soon became possible. Dermott, being popular with all the ladies of the house, was chosen 'to ruin' Isabella. She would become his temporary mistress. Afterward, he could continue his sampling of the ladies in the world and she would have her independence.

*** Be forewarned of some extremely hot love scenes, Readers, because bestseller author, Susan Johnson, is back on the bookshelves beginning November 2000! This one has a great story line, is well written, back ground characters that you cannot help but adore, and a type of man that all women love to see meet his match! This one is sure to please those of us who like sexy scenes in our stories! ***

In 1802, Isabella Leslie inherits a fortune that her avarice uncle plans to possess. He informs his niece that she will marry his son. Instead of bowing to her relative¿s orders, Isabella flees and ends up in a brothel owned by Molly Crocker. The two women cut a deal that will ruin Isabella, but gain her freedom from her odious relatives.

Dermot Ramsey, Earl of Bathurst meets Isabella at the brothel and both are immediately fascinated with one another. He makes love to the virgin, but he still grieves the death of his wife and son several years ago. Though he hurts Isabella by throwing her out of his house and life,he realizes he loves her. Unless a miracle occurs and brings Dermot to his senses, Isabella will be free, but unhappy.

TEMPORARY MISTRESS is an entertaining historical romance, but readers need to realize that the story line is filled with many graphic sex scenes and profanity uttered by Isabella among others. The plot moves rather rapidly forward as the two lead characters and the supporting cast (her relatives and Mrs. Crocker) brings the Regency period alive. As usual, Susan Johnson continues to hold sway over the erotic historical romance sub-genre.

Dont believe everything you read what others say about this book it was really good, They might not like rakes, or brothals. But dont take my word read it for your self. I read alot on Ms Johnson an her storys has a great ending ALWAYS. And beside these 2 people are Anonymous. Go ask the real people that are in the reading. (I am sorry I dont like others on what they saying about the writers. All they have to say is it was ok or it need work).
