Helen Rivenall is willing to do anything to escape the brutality of her uncle’s home. But a promise of honest employment in London is a ruse. Drugged and auctioned off in a notorious brothel, she finds herself won by a man who wants nothing from her except her participation in a harmless charade. Left with no choice, she reluctantly agrees, but as their web of lies grows, so does temptation and the realization that erotic pleasures and sin are often one and the same.
Sebastian Rockwood, Earl of Melton is haunted by a dark secret in his past. One that taught him control is a personal trait to be valued above all others. He also learned never to give his heart to anyone. The risk is too great. Yet where Helen is concerned, his prized control is slowly giving way to an erotic need that threatens to consume him, and all too quickly he discovers nothing can protect him from the ultimate obsession—love.
But when Helen is kidnapped by a madman, Sebastian realizes the only part of his world that matters is Helen, even if she chooses to love someone else. Set against the backdrop of Jack the Ripper's diabolical murders, this erotic historical romance is the story of two injured souls struggling to find each other despite the pain of their pasts.
I've read hundreds-yes-hundreds of romance books and this was just bad. Why I forced myself to finish it when time is more valuable than money is my failure,but I hope to learn.
This is an old and tired plot with not much of a twist. Read the description,it's the entire plot line. I've read the author's Forever Mine , and it's as if two different people wrote these books. I'll go so far as to say that the author who wrote forever mine only wrote the love scenes on this one, as they're pretty much the only good parts here.
