Theodora
It’s not every day a girl gets to meet the most powerful man in the world – but it’s not every girl that’s deemed USEFUL. I’ve been deemed USEFUL to the heir apparent to the Roman Emperor!
My skin prickles with awareness of him.
His hips form a perfect V; his chest seems forged from iron.
I long to touch him.
I long to be possessed by him.
I long to lose all sense

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I am not a fan of historical romances at all, bit I must say that this book has changed my mind. This is not the normal historical read, this is an erotic romance. The sex scenes are hot and dirty.
This book is in two parts. First is Theodora, the second part is about Veronica. Both of these ladies were courtesans, and they have both managed to make it in a man's world.
SC Daiko has done an amazing job in writing this book. As a

Title: Courtesan
Author: S.C. Daiko
Series: standalone
Genre: Historical erotic romance
Page count: 296
Rating: ****


I tend to stay away from historical romance as I have a background in archaeology and find it very difficult to read them without critiquing the accuracy of it. However, I'm immensely glad I made the decision to read this one - it doesn't disappoint.

Amazing tales of courageous women and embracing their passion. Justinian and Theodora have such an amazing and trusting relationship that makes you fall in love with them. The story of Veronica Franco always makes me smile. I remember watching the movie about her Dolabgerous Beauty and I applauded her intelligence and her bravery in a man's world. And the intimate scenes are definitely down and dirty.

I would highly recommend courtesan by s.c. daiko. I received this from the author herself to review. This is an historical erotic romance. I loves how she writes. This was very erotic. Both were fantastic reads. This gets a definite 5 * from me. Would give it more if I could.
