I really enjoyed Madelynne Ellis' first book for Black Lace, A Gentleman's Wager, and I was a bit disappointed when I found out that instead of another historical setting, this would be based in modern Egypt. If anything though, it's even better than the first book.
Ms Ellis excels at interesting characters that you want to know more about, especially the kind of villain that's a really unspeakable cad, but is just too damn cool to dislike. Dareth Sadler is selfish, manipulative, and quite happy to sacrifice anyone and anything to his own ambitions. On the other hand, he's completely honest with himself and just oozes style, so as with Vaughan in the first book, he shines in every scene.
The main character, Adie Hamilton blunders through Egypt like Gwendoline with attitude (and a trowel), in a story that works in some strong BDSM elements without the usual clichés of nurses, nannies and dungeons. There are touches of knife play, breath control, even mind control, without making it really in your face and therefore a turn-off to non scene-players.
She's trying to impress her rich, handsome and infuriatingly aloof boss, superstar archaeologist Killian Carmichael. However, when Dareth Sadler the sensationalist writer arrives, suddenly she's trying to save Killian's career as well as her own. Then there's Anton the rogue treasure hunter who should have been a silent movie star. Whose side is he on?
There's plenty of great, imaginative fantasy sex that's guaranteed to have you breathing heavily and ready to surprise your partner with something new in the bedroom. I really loved the sex magic scenes, which are pitched just right so they're erotic without being silly.

I have had always had a thing for Egyptian tales, Gods and Goddesses etc. But this book put my obsession together with erotica. You couldnt ask for a better combination. I own other Black Lace and this was my favourite, the characters are believable, and the heroine intelligent aswell as sexy. My husband even got intrigued by what i was reading and now i dont always have a minute to read alone.

Fascinating Read! 3 Dec 2006
By Lynn Briggs - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I found this book to be very interesting and extremely well written.I was hooked at the first page and I can see that Ms. Ellis researched the setting before she began writing.I had a hard time finishing it though, as my friend I was travelling with kept stealing it to read. This is the first book by Ms. Ellis I have read,but I am eagerly anticipating her latest book and cannot wait to read it.

Bottom line is that I would certainly recommend the book to everyone who enjoys a "good" story and anyone who enjoys a well put together and well thought out piece of work.

Shame the cover was wasted on such a weak book... 26 July 2006
By Muneca - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I enjoyed Madelynne Ellis's A Gentleman's Wager (black lace) better, the sex was pretty boring and I had to laugh when the heroine called the sex she was having with her boss kinky. The positions themselves are quite common place and almost vanilla compared with other stories I've read. And the plot of this book was really quite ludicrous the villain was not someone to lust after and I really couldn't quite understand what his cult of girls saw in him. He's was one of those mustache twisting villains whose goal never failed to roll your eyes at. About the only good thing about this book was the cover shame it was wasted on such a weak book.
