I pay strangers to sleep with me. I have my reasons…but they're not the ones you'd expect. 

For starters, I'm a funeral director taking over my dad's business. Not exactly the kind of person you'd expect to fork over cash for the intimacy and urgency only skin-to-skin contact can create. Looking at me, you wouldn't have a clue I carry this little secret so close it creases

STRANGER , is now listed as one of my top favourites.

stranger by megan hart is a beautiful story solely based on the realities of a spinster's mundane life.Hart manged to pull off an erotic yet emotional tale that would leave you breathless and wondering weather certain coincidences were actually fate.

The story basically revolves around grace,the family funeral home director a girl who's job demands that she remain solid,independent, practical and on call at all time.

Fue El Segundo libro que leo de la autora y creo que será el último.

Le di otra oportunidad después del fiasco pasado pero es que está historia fue un sin sentido tremendo.

1. La prota le paga a un desconocido para acostarse con el.
2. Resulta con el que finalmente tiene sexo no es al "desconocido" al que le pagó.
3. Comienza una relación de "solo sexo" con su gigolo particular.
4. Yo iba ya a la mitad y no sabía si Jack era el prota, porque bueno; si lo digo fríamente ella seguía acostándose con un

5 big stars for the latest addition to my Megan Hart library. I started this book on the back of Hush Hush because I needed something, moving emotional and sexy from an author who I knew could deliver, and I was not disappointed.

Grace who runs her own funeral home and pays for sex, for the sole reason that she sees so much grief and loss she doesn't want to have to go through that if she becomes involved with someone and becomes the 'one left alone' I can understand that, I can see exactly wher

Ok, so NORMALLY I don't even touch books like this because well they are sexually explicit and UNREALISTIC. However, I was on this website called and was picking books for my queue when I saw this book in the spotlight section. So I let myself just put it on the list because I'll try anything once.

Yes, I will admit it was sexually explicit but if you strip away (no pun intended) all the sex you'll actually find a wonderful cast of characters and a really decent plot.

STRANGER - images1

Before I start my review, obviously no one warned our heroine, Grace – about the above statement ‘STRANGER DANGER’.... because this heroine had a fetish for paying and meeting up with men to spend the evenings with. Grace is a funeral Director, and oh my, what a miserable job. The mundane daily task of looking after the deceased was a real eye opener! But because of her job and constantly being surrounded by death, Grace has major issues with things ending, including relationships –

'Stranger' is another Megan Hart gem. The story is beautifully drawn and effortlessly woven with new and recurring characters from 'Dirty'. This book reminds me why Ms Hart is one of my favourite, go-to authors.

My Thoughts First:
Now remember, I have not read Broken or Dirty yet...
And this is my first book without any paranormal activity since I don't remember how long!!! With that being said... I can say... this book was awesome.
It is an erotic novel, but it had a hint of class about the way the erotic parts were handled; which I appreciated.
I feel in love with Grace. She seems like a neighbor I would have. Her personality was like that of a "real" person you would know. Her job, which she loves, is a
"If there's no sorrow," he murmured, "how can anyone appreciate the joy?"

Grace is a funeral director. After being disappointed by love and seeing first hand how difficult it is do deal with all the loss and pain that comes along with her job, Grace prefers she'd rather pay for having sex than invest in a real relationship. She's got an "appointment" at a bar with her latest rent boy, when she meets a stranger. Sam. She's assuming that this man is the guy she paid for having sex with her. Shortly

Recommends it for: fans of Megan Hart, not so fluffy romances
In this novel Grace Frawley is the owner of a funeral home. She is single and does not see the point to having a boyfriend. So she pays for sex using an escort service.

Sam finds his self in a situation that can only be described as once in a lifetime, and he takes no chance in losing out. He finds Grace sitting at a bar talking about going up to the hotel room and living out a night of passion. Though he does not know Grace thinks he is a paid stranger. Things only get stranger from there.
