Warning: This book contains anal and vaginal sex in bed and unconventional places, dominance, submission, bondage, a ménage, an erotic dream involving five males and one female, and plenty of oral sex.
If the Golden Rule of Smut is to "leave no orifice unfilled or sexual fantasy untried", then Em Brown did her homework and produced a nice little erotic historical smutmance.

As I was reading this, I'd nearly decided that this would probably be a 2-star rating, because in my mind, 2-stars is "nothing to write home about, but it didn't suck and I at least finished it." Unfortunately, by the time I got to the end, there were just so many small things wrong that they added up to one big cumulative "bleh!"

The short version: This reads like a first or second draft of a hastily written "good idea." The story is there, it has a lot of tropes that usually hit my "like" butto
Currently a free read at, this wasn't a terrible book by any means but neither was it fantastically outstanding. In fact, there were times when I didn't quite understand what Darcy and Radcliff saw in one another. He calls her a whore, she's trying to milk him for a bunch of money to make up for the fact that his cousin won't claim her sister's illegitimate child. Like I said, it wasn't bad exactly, but neither was it fantastic.

One point in its favor were that the editorial issues

The baron wanted the family estate back after his nephew foolishly lost it at a gaming hell. So Radcliffe Barrington, Baron Broadmoor decided to get it back from Miss Darcy Sherwood, card sharp and beautiful lady. It is a very engaging historical romance that takes the reader into a part of Regency England that is seldom explored. It is a very erotic novel that also explores the problems caused when men of easy morality refused to accept responsibility for the children they fathered. Darcy was g ...more

Almost didn't read it based on the irksome cover, but I'm glad I did.

Sex, sex, sex

View it as an erotic sample of the author's naughty writings and all will be well. Analyze it for well-developed romance and pout. This is an enjoyable buffer book. Rest your brain cells inbetween great books and count the orgasms.
What a surprising book! I got it as a free read somewhere and was reluctant to read it since it's not quite my kind of thing. But that was not true at all! Although it's not my usual subject (fantasy and shifters ;) ) I was still happy reading it. Em Brown makes the characters real and it's quite interesting to read about a strong woman. They were very rare in that time.
Free eBook. The idea was sound (woman wins estate in a poker game, head of estate tries to get it back, battle of wills ensues) and the writing was mostly good, but I really disliked the dynamic between the two leads. I couldn't really see that they actually liked each other, which made some moments of romance just weird. He was a jerk, but she wasn't much better.
This book was not as bad as some of the ratings made it out to be. It was ok...a little predictable, but good none the less.
