Veronica of V's Reads
4.5 Stars for this historical menage romance. This is a delicious sexy read that includes BDSM scenes and multi-partner M/M, M/F and M/M/F play.

It's a hanging offense after all. This attraction does his head in, a bit, and causes him to behave in other risky manners, like gambling and brawling He's lost his fortune many a t

3.5 stars

This book didn’t disappoint in what I expected, but it also didn’t wow me. The relationship between the three characters was intense and realistic; we get to see the point of view from all three of them. I felt as though the plot didn’t have good pacing. The beginning was interesting, and then right around 25% in everything slowed down and dragged until about 60% in where it picked back up again.

This story didn’t wow me like I thought it would. With a combination of ménage and BDSM pe

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This historical, but extremely racy story is guaranteed to warm you up. It is hot, sexy and charmingly naughty. Set in a time which is far less permissive than our own, these three people find that in each other they are fulfilled - indeed fully filled in every sense of the word! I liked the build up, the development and most definitely the outcome. I would recommend a well iced drink and a location away from eyes which will n

I really enjoyed this one. Everyone is an equal and they each accept the humanity in each other. Not sure how I feel about the ending of their time in Lincoln, but overall a solid book. Thanks to the publisher for allowing me early access in Netgalley!

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

A word of caution to potential readers: Do NOT read this book in public. Oh my word! Howe can craft some seriously hot, squirm inducing sex scenes. So yeah, privacy is the best venue for reading The Mistress and Her Men as there is quite a bit of sex within the story. But don’t despair because there is plenty of drama and conflict to balance it out and leave you feeling as though you got a full story within the pages of this rather st

Author Minerva Howe draws you into this 5 star Historical romance.
Erotic MMF Romance, Two hot Alpha’s

“One night,” Simon agreed, sitting back with one booted foot crossed rudely over the opposite knee. “A whole night, with no arguments. Meanwhile, I shall be allowed to watch.”

This was hot a erotic read. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it.

I used to read a lot of historical romances but I ended up getting bored of them - well there's no chance of getting bored of this historical romance with a twist! It's racy little story with a MMF ménage romance, a BDSM theme and a Domme who knows what she wants and how to get it. This book is set in the late 1700s when it was a hanging offence to be gay or have 'unnatural perversions', so this adds an intriguing backdrop to the story.

Simon is a rich Viscount with strong feelings for his best

This book nearly became the first historical to win one of the yearly curated honors in the GraveTells Book Awards. Historical romances don't win mostly because I just don't read them anymore, and even when I do rarely pick up a historical, I don't feature them on GT at all. But this year, when a friend was looking for recommendations of Femme Domme (or male harem) books on Facebook, The Mistress and Her Men caught my eye. Once I started it, I couldn't stop reading, and after I finished I couldn ...more

I used to read a lot of historical romance novels, but became burned out after a while. However, the blurb from this book sounded interesting enough for me to give it a try. Matthias is on a self-destructive path. His best friend, Simon, hates to see him go down that path time and again, so he comes up with another way for his friend to get out of gambling debt – one night with the Mistress of Discipline while Simon watches.

Felice is known as the Mistress of Discipline throughout Lon

Oh my, fanning myself. Yup this was Hot, fun and may have you squirming for relief in your seat. This book is another one of my may not be suitable to read in public, because you may express a moan or two.
