Delilah Marvelle’s newest release, Master of Pleasure book 5 in School of Gallantry series is awesome. It’s a great read and I promise you won’t want to put it down. It’s a fast read. Ms. Marvelle is pushing the envelope in her writing and I like it!
Book Blurb: WARNING: This historical romance is cotton candy with a razor on top. Themes include male virginity, inappropriate behavior and language you really shouldn’t use at home. If you are easily offended by dirty humor and graphic sex, this book is not for you.
After Miss Leona Olivia Webster had allowed herself to fall in love with a dashing childhood friend who had left her scorned and pregnant, she is done chasing her happily-ever-after. Shunned by society, she dedicates herself to raising her young son and putting money in their pockets. She doesn’t expect to be drawn to her latest master, a brooding man of hulking presence who carves random messages into walls with his Persian blade as a means of starting a flirtation.
Malcolm Gregory Thayer, the earl of Brayton, may have dedicated himself to a life of religious virtue after leaving the monastery due to dark tendencies, but after meeting Leona, he begins to yearn for the life that had never been his. When he meets a retired French courtesan who invites him to embrace what he has long feared, he seizes the opportunity to become the man he always wanted to be. His new mission is clear. He intends
My Thoughts: Reading Ms. Marvelle’s books are like eating a slice of rich cheese cake with a side of chocolate strawberries. They are always rich and decadent.
I love a character that fights himself on having true happiness because he feels his own happiness would be too harmful for his partner. Malcolm has been fighting his true nature for years and has not been truly happy. When he meets the vibrant energetic Leona Webster he may be willing to show his true himself to be hers. Leona Webster is not a simpering Miss, nope, she is a strong woman who wants more out of this life and young son, Jacob (who is scene stealer).
What I enjoy about Ms. Marvelle’s story is they are never cookie cutter and she pushes the boundaries and they are ALWAYS a fantastic read. The romance is hot and sweet and I always look forward to the next book.
If you’re looking for a story that will make you giggle, sigh and smile this is the book for you. It’s a hot read with romantic gestures that you may want to try.
