really liked it
bookshelves: romance

I really like Pam Rosenthal--she puts some great twists on the erotic romance genre that's very cool to read. It's steamy, but she doesn't ignore the character development. I was particularly engaged by Jasper, the middle-aged stuffy academic who's passionate and besotted with Marina (a romance writer of London's high society, which was kind of a fun character beat) and while I knew their affair wasn't going to be temporary (come on, this is a romance novel after all!), I completely bought that THEY thought it was going to be just for the season, and their interactions were quite charming. In general, I liked that he wasn't the typical errant naughty duke and she an aging (but passionate!) spinster. She had money and agency, and he had brains. It was a nice change of pace.
