The videotape shocked and thrilled her...and really turned her on. She'd found it in a small, out-of-the-way sitting room of Blaystock Manor, where she was working. Now everyone was away and she finally had an opportunity to watch at her leisure. There on the screen was the Marquis, her much fantasized-about boss, administering a very sexy spanking to some girl. The intens ...more

This is a short but complete story of the start of a relationship between Rose,who's working temporarily at an English Stately Home, for Christian, who is the current Marquis, who intention is to upgrade and make a successful business concern of his home. Rose is caught 'in flagrante delicto' by the Marquis as she watches his old home made video of him spanking a previous lover. I loved the humiliation aspect of this caught in the act:)
So starts her yearning and the start of her journey into ero

CHANCE OF A LIFETIME, Portia Da Costa. Everybody knows I love Portia’s work. As soon as I begin reading one of her stories I’m as good as addicted through to the end. It’s always fun, passionate, and intense romantic erotica. What gets ahold of me above all is the down-to-earth and humorous nature of her characters, no matter what the setting.

Chance of a lifetime is a Spice Brief (the first of seven Spice Briefs from Portia!) and it's perfect for a lunchtime read or a special treat. It’s excepti

It was too short!
I needed time to fall in love with them or they fell in love too fast...

Historia corta sobre la intensa relación de dos personajes muy diferentes. Christian es un marqués arruinado, que invierte todo lo que le queda en reparar una casa de campo familiar. Allí va a trabajar Rose, para ganarse “unas pelillas” antes de irse al Caribe y aceptar el trabajo que lleva soñando toda la vida. Se conocen de una manera muy peculiar, pero surge una atracción instantánea.

La única pega es que no explican las razones que atormentan a Christian, y que hacen que frene su relación co

Another fast, erotic read. Really liked the emotional depth despite it being so short.

Bruta copia de 50, pero en vez de ser solo un empresario es además un aristócrata... malísimo, la protagonista es bastante débil de carácter y él no es lo suficientemente fuerte sino que desde el vamos le aclara de que se podría enamorar de ella...
Si os apetece leer mi reseña de esta novela que tanto me gustó pasaos por mi blog...


¡Os espero! :D

I didn't know how to rate this book. It was too short and too fast paced. At the same time it was naughty, and I like that. So I decided somewhere in the middle. Good but not great.

I'm really glad Christian found his Rose. Deep down he desperately needed her, someone to love him and want him. I'm glad with the ending of this book.
