Review: Seven Nights to Forever by Evangeline Collins

The author of Her Ladyship's Companion once again pushes the erotic boundaries of Regency romance.

Destitute after her father's death, Rose Marlowe has debts to settle and a younger brother to support. But she also possesses a matchless beauty-one that could command quite a price. Now, every month, Rose spends one week at a decadent London brothel, where she's become a sought-after prize.

Then one night she meets a wealthy merchant. Handsome, kind and compassionate, with a lonely soul that matches her own, James Archer is not her typical client. Falling in love with a client, never mind a married one, is unthinkable. Yet Rose can't help but lose herself as one night becomes seven-and seven nights leads to a chance at forever.

This is a love story, pure and simple.  Sure, the heroine is a courtesan, plying her skills to keep her younger brother in school, and the hero is in a loveless marriage with a shrew of a wife.  So there are some complications. 

Overlook those. 

Rose and James meet.  They spend some time together.  They start to think about one another in their moments apart.  They begin to need one another.  They each want the other.  Those complications I mentioned earlier crop up.  (You knew they would.)  But guess what?  Love totally wins!  And the journey Rose and James go on, both together and separately, is so passionate, so sweet, so amazing, their happily ever after makes the hell they go through worth it. 

(A very special thank you to Dear Author and Berkley for sponsoring the contest in which I won an ARC of Seven Nights to Forever.)
