A Most Demanding Mistress, (Fashionably Impure #2) by Natasha Blackthorne. ARC Review

Scorching Hot Historical Romance 

Miss Miranda Jones is indisputably the most beautiful, elegant and sought after courtesan in all of London. She hides a past full of pain and rejection beneath an exterior of pride. She knows that noblemen put their own fickle interests first and cannot be trusted. Scorned by ducal father, she never needed or expected anything from a man, except his financial support. Luxurious living makes a soothing balm against the sting of the ultimate rejection. 

Now she's madly in love with a nobleman who cannot afford to keep her in such extravagant style. And she wonders if a courtesan can ever afford to indulge her own passions? Can she really gamble so capriciously on her own future and put the happiness of the moment above future security? Will her gentleman prove himself no better than any other nobleman that she has known? 

Adrian Sutherland, the Earl of Danvers, has seen the men of his family destroyed through their obsessive need to possess beautiful women. He'd always thought himself immune to such unworthy drives. Now he's fallen under the spell of Miss Miranda Jones. 

Miss Jones' high standards and past reputation foretells that she'll be a most demanding mistress. Despite his relative lack of funds, Adrian is determined to work hard to protect and provide for her. Passion led this skeptical gentleman to declare himself in love. Yet as they enter a protector and mistress relationship, Adrian finds himself consumed with possessiveness. And he can't help but wonder if is it true love that motivates him? Or is it the need to own her stunning beauty? He must find the answer before their tempestuous romance breaks both of their hearts. 

A Most Demanding Mistress is part of the Fashionably Impure Series and is best read after Miranda's Dilemma. 

Reader advisory: This story contains frank sexual language and general bedchamber naughtiness. Abuse issues are alluded to in the backstory. 

Miranda Jones is a courtesan she is determine to protect herself and her mother. To do that she must have a rich patron.  Unfortunately she loves a near penniless man, and can't bring herself to give her body to anyone else.
Adrian Sutherland, the Earl of Danvers is trying his hardest to rebuild the family coffers, by winning it at cards. That means he spends far too much time drinking and gambling. He is also obsessed with Miranda to the detriment of his other responsibilities. 
This is the second book in a series that must be read in order. The danger that surrounds our heroine will endanger an innocent. Our hero needs his arse kicked.  Luckily our heroine is up to the job. A very sexy historical romance.  There will be a follow up story and I can't wait to read it.

Escape into the past with intensely erotic, emotionally driven love stories. Natasha Blackthorne writes character-focused historical erotica romance featuring strong internal conflicts played out in non-traditional and unconventional situations. Her stories are most frequently about the intimate journey of the characters as they learn to open their hearts to love.

Her heroines are not perfect ladies. They are wildflowers and wallflowers who enjoy flirting with the forbidden. Whether they are bold or shy, her heroines' strong desires and deep emotions drive the plot and drive their heroes to the point of no return.
