Desire as essential as breath…deception as fragile as sanity.


The Pleasure Wars, Book 3

Liam, the Earl of Windbury, had everything when he held his secret lover in his arms. Until a feud between their families left her dead, his body broken, and his sister married to his bitterest enemy.

Wracked with guilt, simmering with rage, he’s spent a year in seclusion, seeing no one except a few servants as he does his best to forget the past and patently refuses to think about any kind of future.

When courtesan Violet Milford enters Liam’s lair, she’s on a secret mission to gather information for Liam’s desperate sister, who fears for his sanity, even his life. What she finds is a man scarred inside and out, whose dark, controlling sensuality hides the kind, wounded man within.

Violet awakens a sexual desire more powerful than Liam has ever known, and her stories weave a spell that begins to work its way past his defenses. But when the truth inevitably comes out, it could well destroy the love that is saving them both.


Warning: This book features a sexually experienced woman who will use every trick in her book to save a man from himself.

Beauty and the Earl by Jess Michaels is an exciting Erotic Regency Historical Romance set in 1813-1814 London, England. #3 in “The Pleasure Wars” series, but can be read as a stand alone. Although, I would recommend reading the other two in the series, for this is an awesome series. See, “Taken By the Duke” and “Pleasuring the Lady”.

This is Liam, the Earl of Windbury and Violet Milford, a courtesan’s story. Liam, is the brother of Lady Portia, whom you will find  in “Pleasuring the Lady”. You must read this one too to understand Liam’s struggles better.

Filled with romance, deceit, secrets, passion, grief, trust, deception for a good cause, and love. Violet was enlisted by Liam’s sister, Lady Portia, to help find and bring him back to the family fold. For Liam has withdrawn not only from the world, but from his beloved sister, because she dared to disobey him. Liam, finds in Violet something he thought he would never find again, passion!

Fast paced and filled with passion, and vulnerability. I love the way Ms. Michaels brings her characters to life, shows their vulnerabilities, and their passion for life and love. A must read tale. Oh, and you will find a story within itself with the secondary characters as well. Love is in the air!

Ms. Michaels is a constant storyteller, who draws the reader into the lives of her characters, where you are made to feel their pain, their triumphs, their struggles and their desires. Love her stories, and BEAUTY AND THE EARL was no different. An absolute delight to read! Personal buy.
