Owner of one of the most successful brothels in London, Madame Marie Marchander has seen and done it all. Jaded by the hand life dealt her, she gave up on love the night her virginity was auctioned off twenty years earlier. But then the boy, now a man, she once loved walks in to her establishment.

Jonathan Pierce, Baron Heartfield, had waited too long to save the woman he loved. A man no longer bound by the vows taken as a boy nor under the influence of his father, he is determined to woo and win the heart of the only woman he ever loved. The fact she was forced in to prostitution is of little consequence beyond the guilt he bears for not interceding with her father.

Resolved to prove to Jonathan that she is not in need of saving, nor is she an appropriate wife, Marie agrees to take him as a lover for six months. Steadfast in his love, he launches an assault on her heart with all the strategy his years in the military afford him. His only goal, to reclaim her love.

The Market in Amsterdam has long been known for its erotic entertainment, which is the perfect setting for this sultry story.

Jonathan and Marie’s relationship is certainly explosive. These two seem to have a passion for one another that oozes out into everything they do, whether it be argue with one another, seduce each other, or make love. Even in the very beginning I knew they were meant to be together and that everything else could be worked out. This also made me root for Jonathan because I knew he would do anything to finally get the woman he loved and he did not disappoint.

One thing I would have liked to know more about was the past, both between the two characters as well as separately. The author gives clues to what happened between them, but I think the whole story would have added a bit more interest for me as well as sympathy. This is especially true because at times I found Marie holding her emotions at bay a bit too much. A better understanding of her past would have helped me understand why she seemed to need such control in her life.

The sex play in this story was plentiful and exciting. I found both Marie and Jonathan’s ability to accept one another truly displayed in the bedroom. Especially for Jonathan and his ability to take whatever Marie can dish out, no matter if she is in control in the bed or if it were he himself. I found either situation endearing and erotic. These scenes truly made the story, and made me want to know what would be utilized in the bedroom next. So anyone who is looking for an erotic tale with a variety of sex play will enjoy this story.
