Robbie’s Review

Don’t hate me because I love every word Tiffany Reisz writes. She could write out a recipe and I would give her 5 Stars. She has that spark – the gift that all writers hope for and some actually attain. Someday she may write a bad book, but right now she is at the top of her game which features snarky banter, memorable characters, and erotica with a humorous touch that will just about cause the pages to go up in flames. Her latest visit with the Godwick family, The Pearl, is no exception.
Lady Regan Ferry, owner of the Pearl Hotel is also at the top of her game. She is rich and beautiful and bent on revenge. She has something that belongs to the Godwick family. It’s a much-loved painting that Lord Arthur Godwick’s younger brother Charlie has used to pay off his debts. Regan doesn’t need the money and she doesn’t really want the painting. What she wants is ten nights of Lord Arthur’s hot young body in exchange for the painting. Like a good boy who loves his family, Lord Arthur is going to take one for the team and submit to whatever Regan desires and what Regan desires is that thing I mentioned earlier – flames! I will confess I have a weakness for a good May/December romance. As an older woman, Regan is a very take-charge kind of lady and Lord Arthur is just precious as he submits to her every whim. Like the good son and brother that he is, he not only submits but does it with gusto as the woman to whom he has enslaved himself becomes more than a debt to be paid. The Pearl has less of the element of fantasy and more romance than we found in the first two books. There is also some heartwrenching angst as a woman who sometimes comes across as mean-spirited and unfeeling finally bares her heart to reveal her secrets.
Why must love be so impossibly difficult? If she’d loved him less, she could have promised him more.
The Pearl definitely qualifies as romantic suspense as well as erotica. As the characters open themselves to each other like the petals of a flower, the mystery also unfolds. There is never gratuitous sex in Ms. Reisz’s books. Every encounter between Arthur and Regan moves the storyline toward a satisfying conclusion and, of course, Lord Malcolm can’t resist making his presence felt. I, for one, am hoping there will be much more to come from the Godwicks!
Many Thanks to 8th Circle Press, Netgalley, & the Author for the Opportunity to Read and Review The Pearl!
