Book Blurb: Seeking sexual excitement and conquest, poor but beautiful Beth seduces wealthy merchant prince Grey Sexton, only to find herself the pursued as he seeks to own her body and soul.

Flouting the moral standards of Jeffersonian America, temptress Beth McConnell lets no man touch her heart. Her motto is love them once and leave them burning.
But when she boldly seduces Grey Sexton, a self-controlled merchant prince from New York, she finds herself too fascinated by his ice-over-fire nature to stay away. His possessive determination to own her, body and soul, threatens to expose her secret erotic life to public shame.
But Beth will only surrender her love to a man she can trust. And Grey's materialistic approach to relationships leaves her little reason to believe he can ever give her what she truly needs.

For these two cynical yet lonely people, can deep sexual intimacy work a miracle and lead to the opening of their hearts?

Review: There is nothing more wonderful than a good erotic historical and Natasha Blackthorne's Grey's Lady really delivers, almost from the first page. Hey, they have to say hello, right!

This is a novella that clocks in at about 65 pages. It was great fun to watch these characters come together.  And the sex...well...steamy. I really enjoyed getting to know Beth and Grey. Both were really intriguing characters that you really want to get to know.

It is hard to get good character development in such a short book, but Natasha does a great job of making these characters real and enjoyable. I also like that it had a happy ending for the two, but not one that you'd traditionally expect. I'd tell you more, but you really should read the novella. It's worth the time it takes to devour the 65 pages!

I can't wait to read the next book in this new series.

Rating: 5 flowers

I enjoyed the blurb that you posted of Grey's Lady. So much so, that I would now like to read the complete story.

One of my friends' in England had that motto too, Love them once and leave them burning for more. They always came back to her. lol.

Thank you for this great opportunity, Natasha is a brand new Author to me.

Hello Diane,

I am glad to see you here today. Thank you for sharing that about your friend. Yes, men do seem to like that in a woman. I suppose it makes them feel like the relationship is a challenge or something.

Hello Wendi,

Thank you for dropping by and for your support.

Thank you Maria. I am glad that you enjoyed the book trailer. It was a lot of fun to make. I tried very hard to find just the right music and images for the mood of the book. It is good to hear that it strikes a cord with a reader. :)
