I have to admit I'm not one of those people that just loves historical romances. I'm more a contemporary girl myself, but there a few authors that just make it so I just can't stay away. Kate Pearce is one of those authors, and her latest erotic novel, SIMPLY VORACIOUS, lives up to and surpassed all of my most kinky expectations!
Lady Lucinda has a bit of a problem. Her reputation has been tarnished, and to avoid bringing a scandal to her family, she goes to her best friend and cousin Paul St. Clare for help. His solution is to marry Lucinda, but she doesn't want to make him do anything he really doesn't want to. Paul has always cared for Lucinda, but he prefers his lovers to be of the male persuasion. Paul is determined to do right by Lucinda though even if that means breaking it off with his current lover Constantine Delinsky. However, when Constantine is introduced to Paul's wife Lucinda, he makes them an offer that neither of them can refuse.
Oh my word! This book is just off-the-charts hot. The chemistry between Paul and Constantine was palpable from the first time they were together, but adding Lucinda in the mix just made it cold shower worthy! But it wasn't just the sex that had me lovin' this novel, it was also the plot. Kate Pearce wove mystery, scandal, and romance between those hot pages, and it kept me riveted from page one.
Lucinda was probably my favorite character because she was thought to be a naive child, but she was strong, loyal, and very determined to make Paul happy. I wasn't always happy with her choices, but I could understand the reasoning behind them.
SIMPLY VORACIOUS is the eight book in the House of Pleasure series, but it could be read as a standalone. However, I have loved all of the books in the series so far, and you will understand a lot of the secondary characters more if you've read all of the previous books.
All in all, this was such a titillating read, I did not want it to end. I absolutely cannot wait for this series to continue.
