No passion is too decadent and no desire is too exotic at Madame Helene's Pleasure House - an exclusive brothel in Regency England that offers the ultimate in erotic delights...

Powerful Seduction
Christian Delornay has observed so many illicit liaisons at his mother’s house of pleasure he regards sex as merely an enjoyable pastime, certainly not an act of love. So when a young widow arrives in search of work, Christian hires her as his assistant with the intention of instructing her in the ways of sensual seduction…

Passionate Surrender
Desperate to escape her past, Elizabeth “Smith” is happy to accept Christian’s offer of work. She is prepared to serve his every need, yet she refuses to reveal her most intimate desires. But in the hands of a master it is impossible to deny her own wanton yearnings, and she soon succumbs to her secret longing for pure carnal pleasure... (Goodreads)

This novel probably isn't for everyone, but romance readers who stray towards the more erotic type may. Elizabeth needs a job, but she doesn't want to be beholden to Christian...particularly because of his arrogance. At first the two clash, and readers will wonder if the novel stops there. However, Christian is intrigued by Elizabeth, she clearly has something to hide and he decides to instruct her in the more pleasurable aspect of life. This is where book takes off!

Elizabeth's character was nice enough. She can be a little too weak at times; it would have been nicer if she'd had a more forceful, stronger character. She was generally nice and caring though. Christian was sensual and sexy, but so arrogant and assuming he could sometimes ruin his charisma. The characters did get the reader annoyed at them or cheering them on though. The other characters were interesting to get to know, Elizabeth got to know many on a very intimate level.

The one big problem with this book was the lack of a storyline. It was well-written and very descriptive, but the main focus on the novel purely concerned sex...with little to no plot. The author did do a great job connecting the reader to the characters and the characters had chemistry. Overall, this book would be perfect for an erotica reader.
