Despite feeling at the start that this could be just another formulaic wounded-soldier-let's-make-love story, I really, really enjoyed it. It is super-steamy, but not icky, and although the premise sounds a bit daft, it worked for me. Yes, the heroine makes the decision to become a prostitute pretty quickly, but with nothing but soldiers far from home milling around, the war raging and no sign of conditions improving, it seemed like a horrible, but rational choice.

The characters were credible, a
Disappointing. I enjoyed this author's Phantom Lovers books and this was sadly lacking the intimacy and character development.

Civil war widow is forced to house a wounded Colonel, he offers to pay for provisions and for her hospitality, she refuses and offers to be his w**** and have him show her how to be a successful one so she can make a living (huh?). He refuses to use her so she send her servant out to find a customer and bends herself over a table preparing to let him violate her when said

I bought this book because I loved the cover and I try to read any Civil War romance I come across. Unfortunately, I wanted more story. If the book was longer to compensate for all the bedroom activity it would be a much better read. Both the Confederate Colonel and the Southern widow were good characters and relatable, but were only written at a surface level because not enough time was given to development. At least the readers were given memories from their past to help fill in some of the bl ...more

I bought this book because I thought it had an interesting premise between a widow who will prostitute herself to become independent, and the soldier with both physical and emotional wounds to heal. Unfortunately, it was more like erotica than erotic romance. I wanted more character development and more to the story than all the sex scenes.

I knew there was going to be numerous sex scenes since she was learning to be a prostitute, however they got overwhelming and I found myself skimming through
First of all, I can say that this is an interesting story between a widow who will prostitute herself to become independent, and the soldier with both physical and emotional wounds to heal. There are many sex scenes in the story that it is somehow overwhelming, although some are titilating. There are also a dose of emotional drama between the characters that you can relate to them. The epilogue is quite unexpected that I wish that the author didn't write it and just leave the story at the highes ...more
This book was just okay. I liked the historical back-drop -- near the end of the Civil War and Carrie's desperation to take care of her small family. I learned while reading this short novel that I strongly dislike the word "cunny," and while almost all other references to the female genitalia work for me, this particular word is distracting and a little gross. That said, I enjoyed how free Carrie became with herself once she realized what her body was capable of!
"Bought and Paid For" is one of those rare erotic romances that merits keeper status. This story stayed with me. Glass presented a credible picture of a relationship forged during a desperate, high-stress time period. Underneath smoldering sexual tension and erotica, this is a story about living with tough choices and learning to let go of past losses and regrets. It's not always a pretty picture getting there, but it is always interesting.
A hot, steamy book against the background of the harsh, desperate and horrific times of the civil war. We also get touches of what social life was like at that time. Very well written erotic historical that I recommend!
Just okay. A bit of a waste of time, but its a fast, easy read. Not super interesting.

Growing up in the south where the air is thick with stories steeped in legend and truth, Debra came by her love of romance novels honestly. Well…sort of. At an early age, she pilfered from her grandmother’s extensive library and has been a fan of the genre since.

A full time freelance writer, Debra especially enjoys combining history, mystery and a touch of taboo to weave stories with unforgettable
