It was the persephonf that to visit people, you need calling cards to put in a fancy little basket to be taken to the master. It reminds me of actual Victorian romantic novels I haven’t read. The part devoted to skullduggery and pursuit is just a little silly, what with the pirates, and the hookers-with-hearts-of-gold, and the coincidences, and the villain who turns out to be behind practically every dirty doing in Eoth Or, get it for Kobo Super Points!

Persephone is a lifelong admirer of Geor Persephone Artemis Roth lives in Savannah, Georgia, with two beagles, three foundling cats, and one husband, who works in public transportation.
The beginning is quite enjoyable, but the middle is marred by some abrupt plot twists that seemed out of the picture.
There were some definite editing problems, most notably words were dropped from sentences, but the dialogue fit the time period and I was immediately drawn i A delightful historical romance. All the above notwithstanding, the sex scenes were certainly warm enough to satisfy, while somehow remaining faithful to the feel of the rest of the writing. Let me say, the best part of this book is the witty dialogue. Val and Loel are a good pair and as they get to know each other better and fall deeper in love they ratchet up the banter and witty dialog as well as the heat of their sexual encounters.
The writing has some great moments in regards to dialogue, but often skews to the very purple side of the scale with the lovers having frequent and oddly-timed sex breaks. Granted, during some of the sex scenes there were velvet sheaths and throbbing rods which I know are an instant turn-off for many readers but for me, it worked as part of the overall florid narrative.

I enjoyed the elaborate descriptions of clothing, food, persephome interior decorations. Something about the calling cards made me think it was Regency. Maybe too many events in one story to really enter in the characters minds and feelings but it was fun and lively nevertheless I have to say that the second half spoiled some of my enjoyment masuerade the first half.
The writing is colorful. The point of view changes arbitrarily from person to person and the prose choices jump from modern to antiquated. But can Marche and Valentine fool Doth society while dealing with an accusation of murder and the distracting fascination between them?
