Misadventures of a Wanton Hussy, 1
Isabelle is about to have her virginity auctioned off to the highest bidder. Only stern, sensible Salvatore, her cruel aunt’s solicitor, can rescue her. While he’s been her tutor, she’s fallen deeply in love. But Salvatore has dark secrets that keep him from temptation. Their futures seem destined to be apart.
Her pride wounded by his rejection, and trust broken by a shocking discovery, Isabelle tries to forget him. Determined never to endanger her heart again, she finds another man to satisfy her sexual needs.
Until a surprise inheritance brings her back to Salvatore.
Now named “Lumina”, she wants two things from him – the cock he once denied her. And vengeance.
Salvatore, now a free man, has other ideas. He bitterly regretted losing her before and he’ll do anything to keep her this time, even sharing her with other lovers.
Until she’s ready to commit herself solely to him.
This was one hot story and the moment I opened it, I wondered who the woman was and what was going on. The author didn’t make me wait and little by little, with clear, vivid descriptions that sent my pulse racing more than once, she built the fascinating story of Isabelle or Lumina and how she came to be where she was.
Isabelle tugged at my heartstrings. We watch how she grows from a naive, playful, chattering girl, to a woman, determined to get what she wants. Like real life, her path is full of hardships and mistakes that will show her life is no easy stroll through the park.
I liked Isabelle but, my heart belongs to the male hero of Lumina, Salvatore. Usually, romance novels have a handsome hero. In Lumina this is not the case. Oh, there is definitely an incredibly hot and sexy masculine figure: Alexander Deschamps, also known as The Chevalier. However, Lumina’s love interest lies on the not particularly handsome, Salvatore. The character is built in such an artful way that, to my mind, he was truly beautiful. He was a man of worth; kind and good, deserving, even with his mistakes and errors.
Through Ms. Fox’s way with words I felt every moment of fear, yearning and pent up desire of the characters as if it were my own. Oh, how I wished Salvatore was not so proper or Lumina was not so impulsive! But the moments of happiness were also mine to relish. A forbidden kiss! A mirrored room! And one naughty, naughty Salvatore!
If you want to read something deliciously hot and naughty, with imperfect characters sure to leave an imprint in your heart, then Lumina is the book for you.
