Valentin Sokorvsky is a man fighting his inner demons. Kidnapped as a boy and sold to a Turkish brothel, he was forced to become a sex slave. Rescued as a young man and returned to his native England, Valentin is haunted by his troubled past. He compensates by becoming a master of trade and enriching himself, much to his family’s embarrassment. When he decides to take a wife, he choses Sara Harrison, the daugher of the man who rescued him.
Sara Harrison has long given up on love, but when she meets Valentin he awakens the deep sexual longing she has been repressing. Sara and Valentin marry, and for awhile, all goes well. Until she senses her husband is hiding something from her. More than eager to appease her husband’s insatiable sexual appetite and yearning to discover more about the man she is falling in love with, Sara embarks on a sexual journey with her husband, determined to uncover the mystery behind him.
What I liked best about this book (besides of course the very steamy sex scenes!) is the wonderful romance that Ms. Pearce tells. Both Valentin and Sara are fully developed characters that the reader will grow to love and root for.
Simply Sexual is historical erotica at its best. The fast pace, hot love scenes and the more than satisfying ending make this a not-to-be-missed read!
