Product Description

Review

"Combining the erotic with the romantic, Robin Schone tests the boundaries of romance fiction".

-- The Literary Times

From the Back Cover

EVEN DESIRE HAS ITS PRICE...

Thirty-six year old Anne Aimes is a spinster whose only attraction is her wealth. But her plain looks mask a passionate woman who yearns to know a man's intimate caresses. Michel des Anges -- Michael of the Angels -- is renowned for his ability to bring women to pleasure. All it will cost her is ten thousand pounds...

Driven by vengeance, ravaged by tragedy, Michael seeks to lose himself in a woman who will demand only physical pleasure. A woman who won't suspect his own aching needs -- or his true motive for accepting her terms. Unable to resist the lure of her guileless desire, he plunges her into a deadly web of deception and revenge where the price of carnal ecstasy is life itself...

Format: Paperback
If you liked 'Lady's Tutor' you will LOVE 'The Lover'. I cannot rave enough about this book. This is an extremely racy tale, with plenty of sexy scenes to satisfy any erotica lover. I would not recommend this book to anyone easily shocked or who would prefer a Barbara Cartland-style love scene.. but if you're a fan of Susan Johnson you would be mad to miss it. But sexy love-scenes is not all this book offers. Both the hero and heroine are ultimately looking for love (even though they do not admit this... even to themselves)... and the dance they play together sent shivers up my spine while reading the entire novel. What I loved best about this book is that the hero is flawed, he is not the perfect man (and where will you find one of those in real life)... but as a reader you cannot help falling in love with him, along with the heroine. Definately a must read... P.S. For those who are interested, Robin is writing a sequel to this novel, continuing Gabriel's story.

Robin has written the best book I have ever read. It is not for the faint-hearted. Michael and Anne are two very scared individuals phisically as well as emotionally who are looking to be loved. There are some very horrific parts near the end of the book, but they do not detract from the story. They make you understand why Michael is the way he is.
This book is very explicit and graphic but Robin puts it all together beautifully. Well done Robin and I look forward to reading Gabrielle's story. He is definately a man worth reading about. Please keep Michael and Anne in it, I want to carry on reading about them in future.

If you are used to ordinary romantic fiction you are in for a surprise. Deep characters not the fluff one often encounters. More than an erotic romance (although its certainly that) but a look inside the heads at the motivations of the leading characters and a hint of Gabriel's pain as well. Read this before Gabriel's Woman.

Format: Paperback
The Lover is at the same time both tender and brutal story about two adult people who struggle to find happiness. The focus is on our sexual needs, be it woman or man, and the society's view how it should be stilled. It requires courage to go against the society's pressure to confirm, something the protagonists show plenty of. They are people who wish to live. There are no simple answers, no happy ever ending in style with the common romance books, only the life with its unanswered questions. This is a wonderful book that I can recommend to anybody who wants to read a romance book that goes outside the clichés.

Format: Paperback
This is the first erotic romance I have read-it is sophisticated and very well written-this lady writes like a poet-her style and nuances seen to be very authentic and her decriptive technique is excellent. This is an intriguing and sometimes very painful story-not what I personally can handle as a romance-I dont mind the darker elements of life but I found that this book was too dark for me-and instead of making me feel blissfully happy it made me feel sad and unsettled. This book would be good as a single title that did not necessary come under the romance genre as such but rather as a well written peice of literature that deserves it place amongst many other great novels. I think though I shall stick to the likes of Karen Marie Moining
