I loved Sharon Page's The Club, which was a historical romance, and when I saw DEEPLY IN YOU, which is an erotic historical romance, I grabbed it up. What's not to like when the heat is amped up, especially in the historical England era when so many things were forbidden?
Helena Winsome is governess to Michael, Timothy and Sophia, but that was only so that she could spy on their uncle, the Duke of Greybrooke, who is said to be a traitor to England. She is being blackmailed to get the goods on Grey, so that her brother's debts could be paid. But as she gets to know Grey better, she becomes conflicted, and she couldn't believe this warm, humorous man could be a cold-blooded traitor. And when Grey inadvertently found her rifling through his things, he wouldn't stop until he made her his and the truth spill from her lips…
Things heated up pretty quickly between Helena and Grey, starting with a pair of diamond shackles. Woo hoo! Our hero is into bondage and spanking, the dark things that he needs to feel pleasure. And when he dished them out, Helena loves them, and the scenes were pretty hot.
Grey is hiding a secret about his past, a secret that involves his sisters and his parents, and it is curiosity about this secret that has me turning the pages. If I were a cat, I'd have used up all my nine lives! While Helena is a plucky heroine, she seems a bit…er, stupid. Let's not talk about believing anything a blackmailer says, but how about the fact that she could believe Will (her brother) would keep the secret about the duke that she has uncovered, when it is Will's debt that has put them into the unfortunate situation with the blackmailer in the first place, when a previous incident had Will succumbing to the blackmailer's demands. Talk about trusting a man who is trapped between a rock and a hard place! Being in turns incensed and frustrated with such a heroine did not put me in a conducive state of mind while reading.
DEEPLY IN YOU is one book of hot, spanking erotic fun, combined with romance and suspense/mystery. If you like your historical romance with a dash of spice and a bit of kink, this book is for you.
