Regine was an innocent governess who didn't know the first things about sex. Until she catches the eye of his employer Penbry Granger, Marquess of Blackwall who's family she works for. Regine in love even knowing he's married and has a daughter and a son begins an affair. Foolishly she believed when his wife , discovered the affair he'd protect her. He doesn't and she is kicked out of her job without a recommendation so that she ends up with no chance at supporting herself in anyway. She becomes penniless and without much turns to a life of a courtesan which is really-- a high class prostitute. “My father took advantage of you, true. He admitted as much to me when I demanded to know why you had been dismissed. But there were other paths you could’ve taken, Régine. You didn’t need to resort to prostituting yourself to survive.” She burst out laughing. “Oh my poor, privileged little lordling…how astonishingly naïve you are for such a sophisticated man.” She walked back to the settee, sat down and insolently draped her arms across its back, displaying herself to mock him. “Well, have a seat, monsieur, because I’m going to give you an education I’m sure you never got at Oxford.” He sat down. And while he listened, Régine told him about her parents’ untimely deaths while mountain climbing in the Alps, and her own need to support herself, since none of her few remaining relatives possessed enough charity to offer her a home. So she embarked upon the only avenue open to an impoverished, genteel young lady of good family. She became a governess. She related how the head of the employment agency had warned her about lustful aristocrats and their sons. When she first came to Blackwall Manor, everything was fine. As long as Kate and Emma excelled at their lessons, she was safe. And then the master of the house noticed her, and she was no longer safe at all. Just as Regine has transformed her image to that of The Queen of Fire who's now an empowered woman. Yet, the the son of the man who turned her away Darius Granger, Earl of Clarridge, turns up and makes it quite clear he wants her. Regine doesn't at first know what he could want and just wishes he doesn't want to destroy her life like his father did. What she hardly knows is Darius (Earl of Clarridge) has come to amaze her since he's always loved her even when she was only a governess. With The Courtesan's Bed couldn't help notice had everything in a romance novel including some small action/adventure moments. About the romance well its a thing of intrigue we see the lust Darius carries for Regine isn't just that but he really cares about having her by his side and as a reader you slowly see them enjoy each other's company to eventually see them realize they might love each other. It's not only about romance and the intrigue there's a intricate story here with intricacy. And you also see actual hilarious moments where theirs Anatole Beaucaire with the Parisian society who's outgoing and friends with Regine. Its a novel that sure has romance, humor, action, and danger including differing point of views of courtesans of France where during that time courtesans were all the rage. The Courtesan's Bed would come to recommend for fans of Historical Romance books. You'll like this since it has depth. Overall: Amazing read! Genre: Historical Fiction, Romance

    I enjoyed this book a lot more than most of the low-price short erotic novels that I've found on Amazon. The writing was very good, the main character was strong and sexy with just enough vulnerability, and the hero was good. The Bad Guys were convincingly wicked, and although the Russian was a bit over-the-top with his despicable behavior, the heroine's first lover was convincing as a nobleman who always got what he wanted and couldn't understand why anyone would even want to thwart him, much l I enjoyed this book a lot more than most of the low-price short erotic novels that I've found on Amazon. The writing was very good, the main character was strong and sexy with just enough vulnerability, and the hero was good. The Bad Guys were convincingly wicked, and although the Russian was a bit over-the-top with his despicable behavior, the heroine's first lover was convincing as a nobleman who always got what he wanted and couldn't understand why anyone would even want to thwart him, much less succeed. The other supporting characters were well portrayed, something which you don't always find in shorter works. My one complaint -- and this is very personal, something that might actually be a positive point for others -- is that while O'Shea wrote some hot scenes of gentle bondage between the heroine and her lover, anything involving pain play was characterized as demeaning for both the giver and receiver, something which could only be brutal and degrading. If there are going to be scenes of S&M in my erotica, I like for it to be hot and *not* A Bad Thing. But again, that's just personal. If you like sexy, somewhat spicy reads with a very romantic couple having an adventure in a vivid world, I would recommend this book.
