Fast paced with light sexual abuse in the Lady Blayne's past, sensual domination, spanking, light bondage, inner conflict, sensuality, passion, Rubenesque, angst, scandal, romance and yes, love.
Catriona, Lady Blayne, has been through it all, scandal, hurt, abuse, lost, grief, and angst.
James, the new Lord Blayne, and cousin to Catriona's late husband, is simply intriguing, hot, sexy as heck, strong, determined, and full of naughtiness. He is determined to help Lady Blayne find her passion, heal, forgive herself and those who hurt her in the past to find her HEA.
While this story, is an amazing Erotic, Ms. Blackthorne has once again, written a tale that is beautifully written, not just about sex, and domination, but a tale about a young woman's sexual abuse, the angst and grief that follows and her desire to overcome her hurts to find true love.
Ms. Blackthorne is an amazing storyteller, one who isn't afraid to write tales of the tough issues in life, afterall, that is real life. Life is not all roses, and fairytales. Readers: you will need tissues, I did, anyway. Catriona's story was tough to read at times, but a necessity, her courage and willingness to survive was amazing. The characters are powerful, compelling, endearing, realistic and lovable, well some of them. The storyline was simply fantastic, intriguing and naughty. I loved this story, the characters and yes, the storyline. Fans of Erotic Regency, bondage, Historical Romance will delight in the newest addition to Ms. Blackthorne's writing career. As I finished this story, and read "The End", now that was another of my WOW moments in reading. An absolutely wickedly delicious Erotic Regency Historical Romance and so much more! A must read! I can't wait to read the next installment in the "Intimate Secrets" series. Well done, Ms. Blackthorne!

Being familiar with Natasha Blackthorne’s work (I’ve previously read Her Mystery Duke which is equally complex, and angst-ridden and which I highly recommend) I was expecting both a scorching and emotional read and I can unreservedly say that this book delivers! I love tortured characters,and in this the female lead Sunny, aka Catriona, is as tortured as they come, the details of her past slowly revealing themselves to the reader and the hero James, the new Lord Blayne, as the story unfolds. I was as devastated as James as I learned of the trauma of her marriage and her life since the death of her husband Freddy, James' deceased cousin.
Catriona is no straight-laced Regency miss. She is a sensual and complex creature and has suffered greatly on account of her natural carnal desires. The novel explores a number of heavy themes: grief, guilt, death, abuse, (including drug abuse), dominance and submission and desires that at the time considered female debility and madness. A number of scenes brought tears to my eyes for what she had been through and her current situation.
The hero James is also a complex and tortured character in his own right and I loved his own emotional journey, as well as Catriona's as they work through the many issues that at the same time pull them together and apart. James is a man torn between his duty to the family and his growing love for Catriona, a woman proving herself to be most unsuitable as a wife. There are also a number of characters in the novel whom I despised with a passion as they attempt to thwart James and Catriona's HEA! indeed, this tale really pulls at the heart strings, it is so emotional! It also does not shy away from some very intimate scenes!
Readers of historical erotic romance not yet acquainted with Natasha Blackthorne will love this novel, which I also recommend to lovers of historical romance who are looking for a spicier read. Please note, a copy of this novel was given to me by the author for the purpose of a fair and honest review.
