Katie Prentiss is a feisty young woman. Well used to having her own way. She is determined to have her way with the delectable older Corrine. Katie has out grown the loveless sex she has been having with her maid servant. She is ready for more. She is ready for love. Katie tries every trick she knows to seduce Corrine, will she succeed?
A most enjoyable bodice ripper set on a plantation in New Orleans before the civil war. Although the book is erotica, the story is well written and the balance of story and erotica is, in my opinion, just right. The story deals tastefully with quite a few different issues. A May/December romance, illness and grief. I thought both Corrine and Katie’s characters were great. I couldn’t help myself hoping they would eventually get together. A great book to curl up with on a cold winter evening.
