Miranda´s Dilemma By Natasha Blackthorne. Release Blitz, Erotic/ Historical Romance


Erotic Historical Romance ~ Courtesan/Non-virginal Heroine

Poised to become Mayfair’s most expensive and exclusive courtesan, Miss Miranda Jones finds her rise inexplicably blocked by a socially powerful nobleman. Scorned by her ducal father and determined to attain everything that life has denied her due to an accident of birth, she’s not about to let this arrogant earl stop her.

Adrian Sutherland, the Earl of Danvers, saw his father destroyed by a heartless, predatory courtesan. He has no time or patience for such exotic, expensive ladybirds. He’s far too busy restoring his family’s wealth and reputation whilst doing what he can to protect his friends from the clutches of all the scheming courtesans of London.

Then a moment of compassion turns intense dislike to breathless passion, and these two strong-willed, fiercely proud people are compelled to indulge in a brief affair. Each is convinced that they can satisfy their craving for the other without emotional risk.

But neither realizes that a little dalliance can be a dangerous thing.

Reader Advisory: This is an erotic historical romance and it contains frank sexual language and period appropriate sexual slang, frequent sexual scenes and descriptions and general bedchamber naughtiness. The characters discuss abuse issues from their backstories during the course of their developing relationship. For Adults 18 & Over Only.

Miranda Jones is a courtesan and her first protector recently died. Because of her financial commitments she must find another very rich one soon. There is a man from her mother's past that caused her mental weakness and is now threatening her again. Miranda is prepared to do almost anything to protect her mother. 
Adrian Sutherland, the Earl of Danvers dislikes all courtesans, because they use their beauty and womanly wiles to extract as much money as the can from the men foolish enough to fall for them. Miss Cassandra Jones (Miranda's aunt) ruined his father , and left him with a penniless estate to rebuild.  
Both Adrian and Miranda have very good reasons for their outlook on life, but the intense attraction between them undermines all they need to do to keep their families safe. 
This sexy historical  gives us a taste of Regency life and the difficulties faced by the illegitimate daughters of unscrupulous noblemen, and the mentality of the over- bearing and privileged  Lords.. 
This is a complete story, but leaves us wanting to find out what happens next.
