As an erotic story, this was a pretty good one. There was plenty of chemistry between Ruby and Captain Price and lots of hot sex to go along with it. It was very well written and the historical setting really stood out in the story.
Unmasked by smoldering desire, a rigidly disciplined madame gives in to the ultimate temptation in Lavinia Kent’s seductive new eBook original novella.
As the proprietress of London’s most discreet house of pleasure, Madame Rouge—Ruby to her clientele—prefers to keep her own company. The first rule in her establishment? She never, ever personally entertains the customers. However, the tall, dark, and provocatively tattooed American sailor who shows up on her doorstep makes Ruby wonder whether some rules were made to be broken. If she indulges, even just once, Ruby’s loyal patrons might get the wrong idea. If she doesn’t, she may never stop fantasizing about where that tattoo leads. . . .
No complications: That’s all Derek Price, captain of the Dawn’s Light, asks of his consorts on shore, and he’s willing to pay handsomely for the favor. But of all the women at Madame Rouge’s, the one he wants is the only one he can’t have, for any sum. Derek is not a man with an abundance of patience. However, for a night with Madame Rouge, Ruby, whoever she is, he’s willing to make those lush curves and sapphire eyes come to him.
Revealing Ruby is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences. Don’t miss a preview of the next novel in the Bound and Determined series, Bound by Bliss.
We get to see a little bit about the past of both Ruby and Captain Price, and his tattoo is truly something magical. I can't image how much it had to have hurt - but it seems to be well worth it. Ruby is fascinated with it and I think I would have been as well. Unfortunately, this was about the extent of learning about the characters and getting to know them. Even as a non-romance erotic novella, I still expect a little bit more story with the sex.
