3.0 out of 5 stars Her Ladyship's Companion 21 Dec 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Really not sure whether I like this book or not. Having first read Seven Nights to Forever, another of this authors stories, which I absolutely adored, I was looking forward to my second Evangeline Collins book. Perhaps having enjoyed the first book I may have been expecting too much but I felt a little bit uncomfortable with the fact that the hero was a male prostitute.
I Know the first book was about a female prostitute but it did not seem as seedy somehow.

I enjoy a good sexy read like the next person but felt that at times the story was absent and the pages were just covered in cavorting in the bedroom, or in this case the bedroom, the study, the sitting room and everywhere else.

Having said all that I was still happy with the ending and that the H & H were meant for one another.

2.0 out of 5 stars If you like beta males...... 13 May 2010
By LuvGirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
where do I begin with this book? I was so happy to see an author trying such a unique theme such as a male prostitue. The book did not deliver what I was hoping for however. The hero was just a little too beta male for a reader that loves alpha males. I think readers that don't mind a hero that is a little passive, will appreciate this book, but for me I needed a hero that was more "take charge". Even the heroine's brothers,(which seems to me will be getting their own stories), did horribly on the protector front! ********SPOILERS******** After the heroine was severely beaten by her husband, her brothers found out and did absolutely nothing but left her in the care of the male prostitute to be taken care of because they had pressing business to take care of in London! ( I think i'll pass on their books!) The heroine's female cousin is the one that had to go and save the heroine, since her brothers or the hero wasn't up for the job! The love scenes were very hot and realistic though so if you like docile heroes then you might enjoy this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible - SPOILERS!!! 21 Jun 2012
By mys_reader - Published on Amazon.com
The heroine was so PASSIVE and self-hating, I couldn't feel any sympathy for her. Her family sold her to a vicious brute and abandons her, but is she angry? Is she indignant?

No, she wallows in pain and guilt over her "sins". Much of the book was spent with her wringing her hands and weeping over her general unworthiness to LIVE in the world with decent people. Boo-hoo! She has no hope! No life! Nothing will ever change! It never occurs to her to do anything but sit around and weep and sigh. No, her cousin Esme is the one to tell her, "You need something more. *I* will take care of it."

Whine, whine, whine. "I am so sinful! I am so unworthy! Somebody remove my terrible self from the planet!" she weeps and cries and snivels. Please. I wanted to shoot her myself just to stop the pain.

So, inevitably, she falls for the man who her cousin bought for her so she could finally lose her virginity. (Yes, she's a virgin - you think we can have a heroine who is an actual sinner?) And her husband finds out.

At the climax of this masterpiece, her EVVVIIILLL (you know he had to be evil, right?) husband attacks the hero and begins to BEAT HIM TO DEATH in front of our Heroine. Her reaction to watching the Love of Her Life being murdered in front of her?

She weeps! She cries! She shrieks! She wrings her delicate pale fingers as tears fall from cornflower blue eyes down porcelain cheeks. Oh, whatever can she do?

Get this - she has a gun available - and DECIDES not to use it! Because it's sinful to kill someone! Never fear, she will be rescued by someone who takes on the "sin" for her - although WHY any sane person would WANT to be with someone who watched them being BEATEN TO DEATH is beyond me!

Ugh.

5.0 out of 5 stars exhilarating heated regency romance 7 May 2009
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In 1811 her brother Philip catches Lady Isabella with her lover and informs her she will marry odious Lord Stirling in a loveless match. She feels guilty and hopes to regain her place as Philip's sister and acquiesces to his demands. Her abusive spouse dumps Lady Bella Stirling on his most isolated Scottish estate Bowhill Park to live by herself soon after their vows.

For five years now her life is that of a hermit though she enjoys working her rose garden and the visits from her cousin Esme Marceau. Worried that Bella is alone with no companionship, Esme sends her male prostitute Mr. Gideon Rosedale, who is renowned for bringing satisfaction to his wealthy female clients. Bella quickly digs past the surface hunk to the intelligent gentleman he hides from his customers. Gideon digs past the prim and proper aristocrat to the seductress she hides from society. As he mentors his customer on lovemaking, Bella falls in love with Gideon, but his time with her is coming to a climax.

This is an exhilarating heated regency romance starring two obvious opposites as she is an aristocrat and he is a working class male prostitute whose customers are wealthy ladies of leisure. Their love has no chance for several reasons yet it blossoms like her roses. Sub-genre fans will relish the relationship between the lady and her companion as a refreshing historical with a torrid seductive edge.

5.0 out of 5 stars great author 8 July 2009
By Ann Mcconnell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I noticed this book because of the cover... beautiful art work. I didn't recognize the author so I took a chance and now I am looking for more books by her. The writing is VERY good. Both characters POV, and both POV's were powerful. I really liked the style and flow of the writing. It was intelligent. I loved Gideon. You didn't get alot of information on his early years... just enough to make you feel for him. I liked Isabella or Bella.. Bella, as Gideon called her. I really didn't want this one to end.

5.0 out of 5 stars a good read 18 Aug 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I don't generally read novels with so few reviews, so I thought I'd take a moment to add mine to the list!
I felt this book was well written and the plot was engaging. I will say that it was more sensual than most romances I read, but that's just personal preference. I found that even so, it did not stop me from enjoying the story in the least. I hope that the author will consider continuing to write about Bella's siblings as I was left wanting to know more about them and their stories. And, I suppose, that right there is a sign of a good story.
