Grey’s Lady is a historical title set in Jeffersonian America. It tells the story of Beth McConnell, a beautiful young woman who lives a secret erotic life. On the surface she’s someone with no wealth who works hard to stay afloat. However, she seeks fun in secret seduction. She likes to seduce men, make love with them once and then leave them. She’s determined never to let any man close enough to touch her heart.
Beth’s world is turned upside-down when she seduces Grey Sexton. Intending to do her usual love them and leave them act, Beth’s astonished to find that she wants to see Grey again and again. It seems he feels exactly the same, and the seducer suddenly becomes the seduced. However, Beth has trust issues and will only allow herself to love someone she can trust – and she doesn’t feel Grey deserves that trust. But he’s not a man to give up easily and although he has his own issues, he’s determined to make Beth his, for good.
I don’t read much historical erotica, but I thoroughly enjoyed this. The tone and language felt authentic for the time, but it certainly didn’t dampen the heat between the characters! Grey’s Lady has an intriguing storyline and likeable characters (although I was tempted to bang their heads together by the end and tell them to sort themselves out!) and I whizzed through it in a couple of sittings. My only criticism was that some parts seemed a tad rushed. But on the whole I found this a seriously sexy read and one I’d recommend to others.
