BEHIND THE RED DOOR
Barbosa heats up the Regency in novellas that are as yummy and steamy as a Sally Lunn bun. Readers may want more erotic encounters between the well-drawn characters.
The Marquess of Grenville has worked hard at his dissolute image, while his alter ego translates Roman poetry. Miss Eleanor Palmer is entranced by the poetry and the marquess when they discover their own "Wickedly Ever After." Captain Jack Prescott's disturbing memories are forgotten under courtesan Calliope's erotic ministrations in "Sinfully Ever After."
Lady Jane St. Clair says "yes" to the marriage proposal from the Earl of Chester, a notorious rake who has held her heart for years. She masquerades as a virgin at the Red Door to fulfill both their fantasies until they marry "Scandalously Ever After." (APHRODISIA, Jun., 304 pp., $13.95)
