Great book; I loved it! It's a total sizzler and I would have given it five-stars if I hadn't been kind of annoyed by something near the end. But aside from that one thing, this was a really great erotic historical romance. Highly enjoyable.

Simply Sinful is the second book in Kate Pearce's House of Pleasure series. It focuses on a secondary character from book 1 (Simply Sensual), Peter Howard. Peter's had a rough life, having been kidnapped into sexual slavery at a young age and

Recommends it for: Lovers of hot, erotic historical romance!
This one had a little bit of everything you could possibly crave in an erotic novel...ménage, BDSM, anal play, love triangle...better yet what's it called when there are 2 couples with a single caught in the middle? There was even a little vanilla sex thrown in for good measure!

Peter is, of course, a tortured and lost soul. He is bent on making himself suffer for a past in which he haas no control. When he meets the Beechams and becomes involved in a complicated romantic relationship with them,

"Escravos da Paixão" é o segundo volume da série Casa do Prazer editado pela Quinta Essência.
Para os que não estão familiarizados com esta série, mas com os designios da editora, logo percebem que se trata de um romance direccionado para o público feminino. Mas, este romance tem uma particularidade, tal como o seu antecessor "Escravos do Amor", a vertente sexual é bem mais significativa do que a emocional, ou seja, sexo é uma constante, e de estória temos pouco.
Enquanto que o primeiro livro se f

Recommends it for: only those who can handle the erotic to almost PWP levels
I know I've been dragging this one for a ridiculously long time. I blame it on the sex. No, the sex wasn't bad, it was just...plentiful. Everywhere, Every position, Every variation.

The story starts off with Peter Howard, the third wheel from the previous book, reeling from his BFF/lover's rejection. He shacks in with James, a gay Peer with darker tastes and a near virginal wife who wants a baby. Abigail, James's wife, has a loving friendship with her husband, but sex has always been a failure on

"Escravos da Paixão" é o segundo volume da série "Casa do Prazer" editada pela Quinta Essência. Depois de no ano passado ter lido o primeiro volume "Escravos do Amor" confesso que vontade de ler este novo livro não era muita, pois não gostei muito do primeiro livro e certamente posso dizer que não adorei este.

Estes livros são romances eróticos no sentido mais puro da palavra. São livros recheados de práticas sexuais desde a primeira página até à última e que para o leitor que não se sente muito

Na verdade a sinopse engana pois tudo o que Abigail quer é que o marido lhe dê um filho uma vez que mais nada na sua relação funciona, a não ser uma boa amizade. James tem gostos sexuais que Abby nunca conseguiu entender e nem sequer sabe por onde começar para poder aprender a satisfazê-lo. James adora Abby que mais que sua esposa é sua amiga de muitos anos e cresceu vendo-a como a uma irmã, contudo quando ela lhe pede um filho, não sabe o que fazer pois James prefere homens. Ainda assim, tenta ...more

This erotic writing might cause readers to become hot, bothered and breathless.

REVIEWER’S OPINION:
This book is the sequel to Simply Sexual. Simply Sexual is the story about Val meeting and marrying Sara. Simply Sinful is about Peter and Abigail. I recommend reading Val’s story first and then Peter’s story soon after. I waited 30 days before reading Peter’s story and had some confusion trying to remember parts from the first book. For readers who liked the first book, this is more of the same. Re

Another great read by Kate Pearson. Wow. This book is chucked full of erotic romance not for the faint at heart. Ménage a trois and M-M. This author has a fantastic ability to take seriously erotic and sometimes disturbing stuff and make you squirm in your seat. Crazy. So much erotica is downright poorly written but this book does not disappoint. It's book 2 featuring Peter. Again, it's worth the read as long as you are not prudish, homophobic, or seriously straight laced. I read stuff in this

amei, a história dos personagens tal como as cenas de sexo explícitas estavam muito bem construídos...
adorei que no livro houvesse sexo entre 2 homens, não lá muito comum um livro que fale sobre isso, e soube bem o "ar fresco"...
estou ansiosa para ler o 1º xD, e para continuar depois a colecção, resumindo e concluindo, mais uma colecção para diminuir o meu dinheiro na carteira

“Escravos da Paixão” é o segundo romance da série [Casa do Prazer], da autora Britânica Kate Pearce, editada em Portugal sob a chancela de qualidade da Quinta Essência.

Personagens envolventes, carismáticas, sem tabus, são verdadeiros anti-heróis qu

Surprisingly good historical romance with a heaping does of erotic content.

I say 'surprising' not because I expected it to be bad or anything. Indeed this is a brand new author to me so I really didn't have any expectations of the writing. But sometimes the marriage of traditional historical romance and erotica can be uneasy. In some cases the sex scenes just feel incredibly incongruous with the main story or sometimes it feels as if the author is trying too hard or sometimes the prose goes sexu

Este foi um dos livros pelo qual esperei com muita ansiedade durante todo o ano. Quando li o livro anterior, Peter foi uma personagem que me despertou muito a atenção, havia algo nele que me fazia questionar acerca das suas origens e do seu futuro. Finalmente o dia chegou em que pude desvendar todos os seus segredos. Este é um livro puramente sexual, com um alto teor descritivo das relações sexuais no mesmo e que nos deixa alguns vislumbres de conteúdos BDSM, mesmo assim não pude de deixar de go ...more

In the first book, Simply Sexual I fell head over heals for Val and Peter. Sara was the perfect love for them. I am however, not all that happy with Simply Sinful.

I was thrilled with the relationship between Val, Sara, and Peter at the end of Simply Sexual. I thought they would have their own HEA. Even when I read the cover of Simply Sinful I never considered that they wouldn't. Val's attitude toward Peter really got on my last nerve. Even so, I figured it would resolve itself in a happy ending

Once again, I am HIGHLY impressed with this love story! But WARNING: If you cannot read a book without judgment or prejudice for your own likes and/or dislikes, this is not a series for you.
The ONLY negative thing I can say is that there were WAY too many instances when I wanted to grab Peter by the back of the head and smash him into a wall....whine, boohoo me and jump to conclusions MUCH?!?!?!? lol

If I thought I was a Kate Pearce fan before, I am definitely one now! I loved this story and I love, love, love the era. I was worried for a while on how Peter would fare in the threesome and I thought he was a bit whiney with Valentin, but in the end I was totally pleased with the turn around he made. Great and extremely hot love story :)

A great sequel to Simply Sexual!!!!

Una historia distinta a lo que estoy acostumbrada a leer, me resultó complicada por la historia de los protagonistas pero me atrapo mucho y me dejo con dudas respecto a la resolución que espero se aclaren en los libros siguientes de la serie.
Tiene escenas eroticas muy fuertes y homosexuales, al igual que el libro anterior, almas impresionables abstenerse.

I think I will a take break for this series :) This book certainly not a good end. At least for me :D I read because of my curiosity but... well, author have an overmuch imagination of certain things. Over and over again I roll my eyes absurdity of things she write :)I think this series book isn't my cup of tea but... hell, did I say I overmuch curious :) Maybe someday I continue to read.

Some very titillating scenes, but I guess I can't reconcile myself to a person committing to more than one person. And here I thought my tastes were leaning more towards the racier side (!). In any case, I liked Simply Sexual a lot better. Valentin is hot. Peter seems to be quite a whiny brat sometimes...

Rating: 2.5/5
Kelly *that's me*
I don't even know where to begin. I was disappointed with Val, Peter, and the whole book. I didn't mind James, but Abby kept getting on my last nerve. I kept hoping it would get better and it didn't. I couldn't even finish the book, and considering how much I liked the first one-is really sad.

Este género de livros acabam por parecer todos iguais...
Kate Pearce consegue pelo menos criar estórias e não apenas sexo.

There's a special place in hell for publishers who publish their books with misleading blurbs and whomever is responsible for the blurb of Simply Sinful is going straight there. This is primarily a polyamory romance with only the merest hint of pretence of otherwise at the very end, and I have no idea why the blurb pretends otherwise. As it is it's a very poor facsimile of what the story is actually about.

A more accurate account would probably begin with Peter Howard (not Abby, who is actually
