SEVEN NIGHTS OF SIN
As the madam of Aphrodite’s Grotto, the most infamous brothel in London, Coral Smythe knows everything possible about men’s needs and desires. Yet she’s never experienced the love of a single man-not even that of Captain Isaac Wargate whose hawk-like eyes stare at her with both condemnation…and lust.
SEVEN NIGHTS OF ECSTASY
Captain Wargate heartily disapproves of the sensuous madam who always wears a golden mask. She lures his officers from both his ship and their duty. But when Coral herself is offered up as the prize in a game of chance, Wargate impulsively enters…and wins.
SEVEN NIGHTS OF LOVE
Now the puritanical navy captain has just seven nights to learn everything he can about the mysterious madam and what she knows of a man’s desires. But when Coral is threatened by the new owner of Aphrodite’s Grotto, will Wargate take a chance on the woman beneath the mask…and on love?

“Much of life is a game. If played skillfully, with an intelligent and fascinating opponent, it can become almost a dance. One challenges and moves, the other teases and skips away, only to dart forward later and strike a telling blow.”― Elizabeth Hoyt, The Ice Princess
In my opinion Elizabeth Hoyt can do no wrong. Her historical romances are just the best! This one is a short story tagged onto the end of the Princes Trilogy. It has no real connection to it other than featuring a character mentioned in the series. Mainly in the first book The Raven Prince (which you should definitely read).
This story is super short, even shorter than it’s page count implies. Due to it’s length, the instalove feels a bit heavy and the ending is pretty rushed but it’s a great story if you’re familiar with the character and fancy a quickie 😉

It’s been a while since I read enough to warrant a wrap-up post. It feels so good to be reading again now the anxiety over everything has calmed down for me. So, this is what I read in May and my thoughts on them. I’m not going to go into too much detail here or… Read more
My TBR is a bit ambitious this month. I’ve picked out 9 books which is less than what I managed to read in May but a heck of a lot more than what I’ve been reading otherwise. The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins Ambition will fuel him. Competition will drive him. But… Read more
I was completely against Audible for so long. I thought it was overpriced considering I pay the same for Scribd and can listen to however many audiobooks I want (kind of) as well as ebooks. But of course with Scribd I don’t actually own the books and they may not have the book I want.… Read more
Poema del Mar is a beautiful aquarium in Las Palmas on the island of Gran Canaria. It’s one of the best aquariums I’ve visited on my travels. It’s divided into three areas, Jungle, Reef – Beach, and Deep Ocean. The Deep Ocean zone has the most impressive installation of the whole aquarium, a 36 x… Read more
Ooh…thank you! Will do!
I recommend checking out that series and the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews.
I love fantasy books, but urban fantasy just sounds so….different. I love different.
I adore that miniseries!! I love rewatching it on Netflix when I can’t find anything new to watch.
Thank you so much! I would normally read about 5 or 6 books in a month so this was a…
