Shauna I have The Crimson Petal and the White on my to-read pile and was hoping it would live up to its great name and pretty cover. At least if the writing is good, I''ll have that to look forward to.

DeAnna I guess I never really thought of myself as a prude, but there were definitely parts of this book that made me wince. It's not a book I would give my mom to read :-)
