The Pleasure of Your Kiss

Some pleasures are worth any price...

Legendary adventurer Ashton Burke has roamed the globe for ten years trying to forget the spirited woman he left behind in England. His devil-may-care pursuits are interrupted, though, when he reluctantly agrees to retrieve his brother's kidnapped fiancée. Too late, he discovers his quarry is none other than Clarinda Cardew, the very same girl who made off with his jaded heart.

The last thing Clarinda wants is to be trapped in a palace of sensual delights with the man whose irresistible kisses still haunt her sleepless nights. She quickly realizes that allowing Ashton to rescue her may put her yearning heart in even greater peril. In a journey both tantalizing and treacherous, Ashton and Clarinda resume the impetuous steps of their dangerous dance only to discover the most seductive pleasure of all may be love itself.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 21, 2011 – Bestseller Medeiros (The Devil Wears Plaid) conjures up a Victorian Orientalist fantasy of the Near East. In 1834, Clarinda Cardew is traveling from England to Burma to be married. When her ship is captured by pirates, Clarinda is sold to a Moroccan sultan. Her betrothed asks his greedy soldier of fortune brother, the devastatingly handsome Capt. Sir Ashton Burke, to rescue her, not knowing that Ashton and Clarinda have long been in love. In an entertaining twist, Ashton soon discovers that the sultan is his old classmate from Eton. Despite the sultan s Western education, the imperial harem is highly sexualized: children are banned, nudity is routine, and cucumbers are carnal teaching tools. This ahistorical setting permits sensual shenanigans that reignite the flame between Ashton and Clarinda, even at the risk of death. A heavy reliance on the exoticized locale and stereotypical side characters diminishes an otherwise enjoyable story.

Such a good read!

Teresa Medeiros has done it again! She's created a story filled with page turning suspense and interesting plot twists. I'm already waiting on pins and needles for the next book in the series

So yummy!

What a great story! I really enjoyed the character development, not just the main characters, but the secondary as well. So much fun!
