This book took me days to get through, if you knew me you'd know that's a sure sign I'm not into it. The writing was decent, not to many typos or misused words. Though the author did a good job of getting you into the characters and their heads the problem for me was I HATED the heroine, she was whiny and insecure, I can see why she would be but I still just wanted to tell her to shut up.

There wouldn't have even been a book if the two main characters would just be ho

Per avere Burlington Manor

La scintilla amorosa, alle volte, può anche riaccendersi. È così che riprende vigore un amore adolescenziale mai giunto al suo apogeo. I protagonisti sono due fratellastri, Carmen Shelby e Rex Carruthers, alle prese con una milionaria eredità. A distanza di nove anni scoprono che il loro amore era stato solo temporaneamente messo da parte, ma niente nei loro sentimenti è cambiato. Non essendo fratelli di sangue, non c’è niente di sbagliato nel loro rapporto. L’eredità è

A wonderfully amazing book for everyone to delve into the world of eroticism. The writing is well-crafted, with an in-depth narration and a perfectly-shaped description throughout the story.

After the death of his father, Rex Caruthers had the opportunity to get close to his ex-step sister once again, Carmen Shelby, in order to discuss the terms of the will. It was obvious that Rexy sexy was not really interested in his share of Burlington manor as much as he was obsessed with Carmen. He even of

It all starts at a party at the Burlington Manor 9 years earlier where Carmen had a very big crush on her stepbrother Rex, she wanted him so bad that she followed him up to his room to show him how much but when she got up there the door was ajar and she could hear something no someone making noises, she looked in and found her best friend laying on Rex's bed with him between her legs. From that moment she vowed to not feel that way towards Rex and for 9 years that was easy as Rex had not been a ...more
“It’s only a matter of time,” he continued. “We both know that. It’s always been a matter of time before you and I ended up in bed together.”

The Burlington Manor Affair is a complex, erotic novel packed with family secrets, betrayal, and unrequited love. It seems only right that it was set in the beautiful English countryside on an estate where the family manor has seen it’s fair share of love and pain.

This was a very interesting piece of women’s fiction to read. The protagonists, Carmen and Re
Il libro inizia in medias res, il che è piacevole, peccato che finisca con l'essere la brutta copia di "Schiava per vendetta" di Ann Owen. Coinvolgente, ma prevedibile. Dovrebbe essere spiegato meglio il periodo storico dei personaggi ed evitare di creare scene solo per far litigare i protagonisti (come la festa a sorpresa). Avrei preferito più azione e meno sentimento, magari sarebbe stato più leggero.

Good fun! A very likeable leading man...not just sexy and in command of himself, but also in touch with his feelings, which makes him more appealing. Lots of sexual tension, and brilliantly descriptive sex scenes. Not as much sex as I expected, meaning that the emotions and feelings of the characters (they actually love each other - it's not just physical) are what drives the story forward to a very satisfying ending.
I love a good house plot, and I was enchanted by that aspect of the story. Unfortunately both the hero and heroine annoyed me. He comes as off sleazy and domineering. She's one of those types who talks a good game until the hero makes googly-eyes at her and then she can't seem to control her hormones. By the time a second half suspense thread comes into play I was ready to be done with the both of them. I like Walker's writing style, and have enjoyed other stories by her, but this one fell flat ...more

I am the author of several erotic novels including ALONG FOR THE RIDE, INESCAPABLE, RAMPANT, SORCERESS, MONICA'S SECRET and THE HARLOT. I've also had shorter work published in numerous anthologies.

I write across genres, and all of my work has erotic content, whether it's short erotica, a contemporary romance, or a novel set in a paranormal or historical world. I consider myself a storyteller, and
