Grace Brisbane will do anything to save her family from poverty, even marry for money. But to catch the eye of a worldly noble, inexperienced Grace will need to learn the secrets of seduction. And who better to teach her than a man whose life is devoted to pleasure? Alex Weston is the top attraction at Lavender Hills, the all-male brothel that caters to the desires of London’s most fashionable women. His beauty and sexual prowess are legendary, yet his seemingly charmed life masks an ugly truth. Alex is a prisoner in a gilded cage, blackmailed into service. He wants only freedom - until the night Grace Brisbane walks through his door. With a single kiss, what was supposed to be a business arrangement explodes into a passion unlike any Alex has ever known…or Grace dreamed possible. But love between a lady and a whore can never be - can it?
Out of the Norm
The story line is different from normal stereotypes of strong, powerful "manly men" as main characters. It exploits the sensitivity and insecurities men keep hidden deep within. It was a change in pace. Although I have to admit, I prefer a bit more strength. Alex was a bit too gullible and weak minded even though I understand he's been manipulated and brainwashed since childhood. There are great moments in the book where Alex is mucho macho.
