I bought this book because I am a hopeless romantic, and it came under the romance genre. I admit it was erotic romance and I thought why not give it a try. The Thea Devine story was good, a little bit crude but acceptable. Robin Schones was very moving, and Susan Johnsons good. All this three involved the woman who gets involved with a man and the story revolves around the two of them which is OK.Also, inevitably there is a lot of making love between the two of them which is OK, even if it is a bit raunchy. BUT! Beatrice Small's is absolutely UNROMANTIC - it is on the point of sickening. The woman is literally raped by the 'hero' in front of 4 men who want her 'disciplined' then she is drugged and has 4 different men have sex with her at once. Then at the end she is forced to have sex with one of her 'suitors' perform a sex act on another before the 'hero' sweeps her off into the sunset and jealously asks her who made love to her - it sounds like half of England did!!! it is the most unromantic story I have ever read and admit that some people like these stories and good luck to them but do not put it into a book that comes under the 'romance' genre. It is not in the least bit romantic - I am disgusted and will avoid anything with the name 'Beatrice Small' on it.
