This was bought on reccys from amazon.com readers, and it isn't bad, but it wasn't good enough that I feel the need to track down more from this author.

It's a historical tale in which widowed Rebecca is bored with living at her father's house now that her scandalous husband has died and left her destitute, and she is considering becoming a mistress, as she misses sex. Except that she's found in an indelicate situation and is exiled to her brother's ranch in the country, where she meets foreman Jude.

He is reticent to start anything, as she is above him, even though he walked away from his family's wealth to be his own man, but they have secret meetings and become lovers. Rebecca teaches him everything that her wild husband taught her to enjoy, and I did like that Jude didn't have any issues with her experience and what she wanted, even though much of it was new to him. I also liked how he didn't judge her and that in the end, his love and acceptance made her hold her head up high in society that had shunned her, but was it a Keeper?

No, because we didn't get to know enough about the leads, and this was a novella, so it was understandable that there wouldn't be much character development. It is billed as an erotic novella, and I suppose that it is that, but for a historical, I would have preferred more of a love story, which again, I suppose this was, but I mean with more romance and angst and feelings. I kind of didn't like when Rebecca thought that Jude had left, and she decided that she would resign herself to being a mistress, and never a wife again, and that she took up with the guy she'd been caught with, as that made her seem hard and calculating, but again, I understood that she had learned that she could only count on herself.

An ok read, with a real storyline, but not quite satisfying enough.

Rebecca is a fantastic, fiesty, sexy woman who struggles to conform to the expectations of society, especially with her passion for hot, dirty sex anywhere and everywhere - preferably in public! This caused many raised eyebrows when it was with her husband, but now she is a widow and she still has needs. How many men are up to the challenge of this wild, wild widow? Enter Judah, they always say you need to watch the quiet ones! He is definately the strong, silent type and whilst her family look down on him he is far more man than any of them. Wanting a sexy read? This is for you.

Dull.drawn out and over long with not a lot going for it really. Not much of a romance, not very sexy just a bit dull
