They need to reach Osaka to sail, but Sunskoku reports to Chief Inspector Hiroki who begins a massive manhunt. As Tama and Hugh defeat Hiroki's ninja, they also make love when they find a few days of sanctuary. They reach Osaka and sail to France where she hopes to persuade her reluctant brother to return to Japan and where she knows that her tryst with her beloved will end when his western lifestyle intercedes.
PURE SILK is an exhilarating east meets west mid nineteenth century erotic romance that is at its best in Japan. When the story switches to France, it loses some energy with the meetings of his enervating ex-wife and her debilitating brother. Still fans of exciting historical romance that blends the XXX sex scenes into the tale and for the most part uses profanity in the right place will find Susan Johnson's latest purely delectable.
This is supposed to take place in 1868, right? Yet I have found phrases such as "worst case scenario" which wasn't used till 1960, "equal opportunity observation" (1963), "the understatement of the century," "shoot first, ask questions later," and most annoying of all, "That's me. Mr. Assured."
Would anyone really say these things in 1868? Is this a time travel story? I think Ms. Johnson hired a ghost writer, though how all of the above could have made it past the many readers prior to publication is beyond me. Ms. Johnson is normally so meticulous and thorough in her backgrounds and facts. That's why I gave it two stars, because I normally like her.
I thought it'd be intriguing to read something that didn't take place in England, France, or Scotland for once! So she gets another star for a fresh locale.
