Wicked Reads Reviews – Revealing Ruby by Lavinia Kent

Unmasked by smoldering desire, a rigidly disciplined madame gives in to the ultimate temptation in Lavinia Kent’s seductive new eBook original novella.

As the proprietress of London’s most discreet house of pleasure, Madame Rouge—Ruby to her clientele—prefers to keep her own company. The first rule in her establishment? She never, ever personally entertains the customers. However, the tall, dark, and provocatively tattooed American sailor who shows up on her doorstep makes Ruby wonder whether some rules were made to be broken. If she indulges, even just once, Ruby’s loyal patrons might get the wrong idea. If she doesn’t, she may never stop fantasizing about where that tattoo leads. . . .

No complications: That’s all Derek Price, captain of the Dawn’s Light, asks of his consorts on shore, and he’s willing to pay handsomely for the favor. But of all the women at Madame Rouge’s, the one he wants is the only one he can’t have, for any sum. Derek is not a man with an abundance of patience. However, for a night with Madame Rouge, Ruby, whoever she is, he’s willing to make those lush curves and sapphire eyes come to him.

Revealing Ruby is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Revealing Ruby is a lusty novella, with everything centering around the physical, with a thread of suspenseful mystery lying deep beneath the seduction.

Heavy on the description of the characters' attributes, the clothing, & their surroundings, but very light on the content of their character. Monologue & dialogue are essentially about wanting & how to get.

Physical chemistry & smoldering scenes ended with a cliffhanger, when the next book is a different set of narrators.

Recommended: Historical fans who aren't too picky about the details of the era. Erotica fans who enjoy sexy scenes with a very small slice of story.

I really enjoyed the writing and the story in book 1, so was sure that this would be good – and it certainly is.

Ruby was central to the plot in Mastering the Marquess and here we get a snippet of her true self, or is that selves. It is definitely hot, but also poignant and amusing. Captain Price, (oh what I would give for a picture of his tattoo) I am hoping we will meet again in future installments. Once again, good writing and interesting plot lines that had this reader up till late and wanting to know what happens next.

I live in Washington, DC with my husband, kids, two cats and a changing menagerie of other small beasts.

I worked in both the arts and in the business world before giving into my love of storytelling after the birth of my oldest -- although it wasn't until after the birth of my youngest when I suddenly had full-time childcare that it all came together for me.

I love discussing books -- almost any books at any time.

One of my great joys is having my children get old enough that we can all read the same things and talk. I am so happy that YA is the flourishing world that it is.

And of course I love Romance. I started back with Kathleen Woodiwiss and Johanna Lindsay and have never given them up since -- although there were a few slow spots along the way.
