The Secrets of a Courtesan | [Nicola Cornick]

The Secrets of a Courtesan

The epitome of privilege and power, the handsome Duke of Welburn sets all the ladies' hearts aflutter as he strides into the village of Fortune's Folly. For Eve Nightingale this fluttering is a mixture of wariness and wonder. Once his glittering society mistress - caught up in his glamorous world by day and tangled in his bedsheets by night - she is now no more than a penniless yet proud shopkeeper. It's a world Eve can't go back to - she has secrets to keep. But this determined duke seems very keen on unravelling them....

    Story
    "Not In My Favorites Pile"


    Story: 2 stars
    The premise sounded interesting. The story started out with intrigue. Then somewhere along the way it just became tedious. The reason for the heroine leaving in the first place was a little bit of a letdown although understandable for the time period and her position, but it just didn't draw me in after learning the reason.

    Performance: 2 stars
    Elizabeth Jasicki is a good reader, but in my opinion, not a good voice actor in this story. The story was told without a lot of emotion. The characters sounded the same in every emotional situation whether they were meeting again on the streets of Fortune’s Folly, in bed, or in a heated argument. I wanted a little more emotion in the readings rather than just the soft, subdued reading the narrator maintained.

    Overall: 2 stars
    I finished the story only out of curiosity. It's not one I would replay.

    "Really enjoyed and wished it was longer."

    Very good story, I love the historical romance stories that have that twist of a mystery. Recommend this story.
