Historical briefs with a bite of erotica hits the spot every time. Have thoroughly enjoyed the 'Ladies Sewing Circle' novella's. Brava!

Erotico, ma con stile... credo che leggerò anche gli altri della saga...
probabily the worse book i read i didn't got into it at all
26 pages, not worth reading IMO. It was ok but nothing spectacular.
Loved it--can't wait for the next one!
Too short for any development
