Chloe Cole is the New York Times bestselling author of steamy paranormal romance novels and one half of the happiest couple in the world. She and her handsome hubby currently reside in Pennsylvania with a four-pack of teenage boys and their two dogs, Gimli and Pug. When she isn't acting as maid, chef, chauffeur, or therapist, she can be found reading just about anything she can get her hands on, from Young Adult novels to books on poker theory. She hates bugs (except ladybugs, on account of their cute outfits), but lurrves chocolate. She also loves writing steamy romance stories, but also hopes to one day publish something her dad can read without wanting to poke his eyes out with sharp sticks. If she had to pick another occupation, she would be a pirate. Or, like, a ninja maybe. Oooh, or a Gryffendor!
What pissed me off was the modern speak, and the modern clothing. As a costumer, the dress that was a focal point of the very short plot bothered me to no end. I mean seriously bothered me. No Stockings? A slit going from floor to upper thigh? Her breasts nearly spilling out (okay, that one in France maybe, but not the lack of stockings or slit)
This book is supposed to be an erotic short set back in 19th century London. The problem with it is that the language is all modern day instead of historical. The only part of this that was accurate with the times was the fact that Caleb was Serafina's guardian after the passing of her parents. The sex acts are 'ok.' It's possible that the author could pull off a better written modern day erotic. This one was just poorly delivered for the era when it's supposed to occur.
Oh I'm so ashamed, it's really just a psudo-historical with one sexy scene but I liked it. Only read for the titillation factor. There are few historical references and many expressions are modern but I think she was setting up the guardian/ward storyline. Sexy guilty pleasure but super short. It gets 3 stars because it free :)
