This is a group review of three novelettes in a thematic series entitled "Songs of Sappho", from which you may correctly deduce that the theme is lesbian historic romance.

I only stumbled across this author back in February 2015 when her publisher (Musa Publishing) announced a going-out-of-business sale. The e-book prices were so ridiculously (and guilt-inducingly) low that I picked up Bassett’s entire eight-book series “Songs of Sappho” without knowing anything more than that they were lesbian h

The Songs of Sappho series is extremely hot! For mature adults only, so please be over the age of majority in your state if you choose to purchase and read these vignettes. Beautifully written stories detailing the first experiences of love between women - physical and emotional. For any adult who enjoys this type of story, you will not be disappointed!

Songs of Sappho Series: Lily in Bloom (1), My Lady's Service (2), A Sweet Revenge (3), The Food of Love (4), Bound by Fortune (5)

A quick, hot little read. The purpleness of the prose took me a little while to get used to, but considering the time period and the characters it's entirely appropriate and becomes very charming once you slide into it.

This series is wonderful and I thoroughly enjoyed the freshness of the first one. A repressed Victorian woman finding out what she really needs? How can you go wrong?!

Good, short erotic lesbian historical.

I read the first 5 books in this series in a row and did a general review of all of them on my blog since they are kind of formulaic with story variations.

Lily does not realize she desires women. Emmaline introduces her to womanly love. When it looks like they will be separated, they come up with a solution. Good start to the series. Tender love scenes.
