by Lavinia Kent
Publisher ~ Random House Publishing ~ Loveswept
Genres ~ Adult Historical Romance, Erotica
An innocent young woman flirts with scandal and becomes the mistress of her own forbidden desires in this stimulating Regency romance from the author of Mastering the Marquess.
Lady Cynthia Westhope can’t believe the shocking rumor is true. Her childhood friend, the daughter of a duke no less, has become the madam of London’s most exclusive and notorious brothel. Though she’s known as “Sin,” Cynthia is scandalized—and surprisingly curious. Just picturing the whips, the chains, the uncontrollable urges men gratify behind closed doors sends a jolt of electricity through her body. Still, Sin can’t imagine taking part in such games—until she’s snatched off the street during a raging storm and swept away to a remote cottage.
When James Winters encounters the comely virgin, he assumes she’s one of Madame Blanche’s fresh new beauties, especially after Sin pulses in ecstasy as he ravishes her. Then he discovers that she’s Lord Westhope’s virgin daughter . . . or was. Now they will both be compromised, unless James devises a plan to save Sin from disgrace. Before long, they’re entangled in a web of tempting propositions, family secrets, and sensual intrigue—and bound together so tightly that James never wants to let go.

Author Lavinia Kent continues her Bound and Determined series with this uncommon erotica full of rich characters and extremely hot love scenes.
Primary female character Lady Cynthia Westhope is a virgin and the authors portrayal of her introduction into forbidden desires is not only believable but very hot reading. She's demure with a feisty edge and I loved how she blossomed after her first experience. It is refreshing how she evolves in this story as she becomes more powerful in her thinking about her options after losing her virginity.
James Winters the primary male character was pretty much what one thinks a DOM would be like, in charge and very sensual. But underneath his armor the reader will get to see slow glimpses of what he keeps hidden. It was quite entertaining to see how he went about trying to make Lady Cynthia change her mind about his offer.
This is a great story and a fast read filled with hot, hot love scenes. I give this 4 STARS across the board.
Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

I worked in both the arts and in the business world before giving into my love of story telling after the birth of my oldest -- although it wasn't until after the birth of my youngest when I suddenly had full-time childcare that it all came together for me.
I love discussing books -- almost any books at any time.
One of my great joys is having my children get old enough that we can all read the same things and talk. I am so happy that YA is the flourishing world that it is.
And of course I love Romance. I started back with Kathleen Woodiwiss and Johanna Lindsay and have never given them up since -- although there were a few slow spots along the way.
