Reader Review: Enjoyed this historical novel although it would have been interesting to explore the characters further. I would consider reading more books from this author.
For her transgression, she will pay-with screams of forbidden pleasure.
After a lifetime of hard work, Captain Roake Barbenoir finally has all he has ever wanted. Wealth, social position, and the epitome of an ideal wife, the beautiful and well-born Jenesta. Of all his treasures, she is his favorite-a pearl, perfect and pure-and Roake vows never to tarnish her with the dark sexual knowledge he gleaned from a life at sea.
Yet every breath his sweet wife takes arouses an urge to watch her come apart under the onslaught of his passion. But she must never know of the lust-filled, almost demonic cravings fighting for release in his soul. To make her privy to them would be to lose her warm regard.
Each time Jenesta feels she and her enigmatic husband are growing closer, Roake withdraws behind a cold, unreadable mask. Perhaps if she knew him better, knew more of his past, she could learn how to win his heart. The answers surely lie behind the locked door of Roake's east-wing retreat. The one he has forbidden her to enter.
Jenesta's defiance of his one simple rule cannot go unpunished. For her transgression, she will pay-with screams of pleasure; sweet, exquisite pain; and perhaps with the loss of what she wants most. Roake, and his love.
Warning: No demure Regency here! Graphic and explicit everything , including language and sex of all varieties (as could be expected from an Alpha male more accustomed to bordellos than ballrooms) and, be warned, your grandmother's pearls will never look the same to you again.

The Pearl at the Gate

Reggie Gallagher ducked behind the last in a row of Dumpsters
and braced her hands on her knees, dragging in huge gulps of air. Sweat ran
down the side of her face, and the black ribbed tank top she wore clung to
her breasts. The coastal humidity and heat acted like a steam bath even
when she was standing still. For the moment, all she could hear was the
ragged gasps of her breath wheezing in and out of her straining lungs. And
despite the retched stench of the waste beside her, she welcomed the
respite from the chase.
Where was Madison? She?d been right behind Reggie until
The quiet of the alley was broken when pounding
footsteps entered and raced toward her.
Risking a stealthy glance around the hard metal corner of
the Dumpster, Reggie confirmed the runner, and she reached out to snag her
and pull her in beside her.
?Can?t?stop.? Madison bent low, her shoulders heaving
with the effort to fill her oxygen-starved lungs.
?Breathe,? Reggie ordered, and tapped the miniature
headset positioned inside her ear like a hearing aid. ?Where the hell are
Jordan and Mike??
?It?s?as?if?they disappeared.? Madison sucked in air and
gushed, ?Ah, shit! I can?t breathe. I don?t know if those guys saw me turn
down here, but they can?t be far behind.?
?Then let?s go.? Reggie shot another glance around the
corner of the Dumpster. The alley was empty. She waited another second and
then grabbed her sister?s hand, pulling her...

This one is really short and has a seriously lame story-line... It's only 84 pages but it's got a really good scene in it so if you want to read it- go for it!

Reviewer: A reader from BOISE, ID USA
I was interested in the premise, innocenty beauty with the dark brooding counterpart, but all I received was disappointment. There really is no storyline and the intimate scenes were not believable. No character development, so you weren't invested in the story.
