Erotic Romance ~ Regency Historical ~ Light BDSM ~ Older Woman, Younger Man ~ Former Courtesan Kept Woman ~ Novel Length ~ Part of a series but may be read as standalone.

Heartbroken and disillusioned, Rebecca Howland is done with all men. Especially noblemen. Past a certain age, she knows her previous life of carnal indulgence and grand adventure is over. Or so she thinks. Back at home, whilst working in her family’s shop, a moment of compassion entangles her in an old battle between two powerful, bitter enemies. A commoner, Rebecca finds herself falsely accused of a heinous act by a vicious member of the aristocracy. In grave peril, she turns to the one man she thinks can help her.

Stephen Drake, now inexplicably Baron Drake, has always desired Rebecca. When she turns to him, he vows to protect her at all costs, especially from the dangerous life he lives. The stakes are high and time is running out for her … and for him as well. Stephen finds himself driven to ruthless actions that threaten to kill the fragile bond between them.

Years ago, Rebecca forbade herself to love Stephen Drake. Now he’s back, no longer the young man she remembers but a dark and dangerous stranger. When he demands a fortnight of her complete submission in return for his protection, his sexual dominance ignites a carnal passion that makes her feel alive like never before. But … dare she trust a man with too many secrets?

My Thoughts:
WOW! Simply delicious and wicked. #3 in the “Regency Risks” series, but can be read as a stand alone. Fast paced, thrill ride of delicious wickedness. Passion, danger, romance, lots sensuality and so much more makes this a must read, Erotic Historical Romance. ” Perilous Risk” is about so much more than sensuality and submission, it is also about betrayal, second chances, an older courtesan, a younger baron, it’s also about trust, romance and love. A compelling and complex Erotic with a bit of BDSM, lots of passion, submission and love. The love scenes are tastefully written, but very sensual and passionate. The characters are engaging, long suffering, and interesting. The storyline is well written, with intrigue, suspense and mystery. Kept me guessing who was doing what to whom and why. Oh, yes you may find a spy, an assassin and a murderess. What a thrill ride! I would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys lots of spice with their romance. A perfect late night read! Ms. Blackthorne is a consumerist storyteller. Loved it! A wickedly delicious Regency romp! Well done.
