Cover Reveal: Veronica Courtesan by Siobhan Daiko

Cover Reveal

Veronica Courtesan by Siobhan Daiko



I watch him watching us, imagining how he would take me.
I send him the message with my eyes.
This is who I am.
I am Veronica Franco.
I court the cultural elite for fame and fortune, giving my body to many.
And I’m good. So very good. After all, I was taught by my mother, and mother always knows best.
How else to please the future King of France than with the imaginative use of Murano glass? How else to fulfil the desires of all yet keep my sense of self-worth?
But when disaster strikes and my life begins to unravel, I’ll have to ask myself one question:
Is it too late to give my heart to just one man?
Set in Venice 16th Century.
Advisory: sensuously erotic. 18+

‘Sometimes it’s as small as a mushroom. You’ll be surprised how quickly it can grow when you stroke it. Your movements should be slow and subtle. Don’t touch it straight away. Gently rest your hand on your patron’s leg, then brush your fingers on his cheek. Let your shawl slip down so that he can see your breasts. All these things you can do after you’ve entertained him.’
‘Entertained him?’
‘Most definitely. You’ll be an honoured courtesan. Highly sought after. There are only just over a hundred among the thousands of whores in Venice.’
‘So many?’
Mamma ignores my question. ‘When you are entertaining your patron by singing, playing the lute or spinet, or with witty conversation, you must flirt with him, entice him into your bed.’
‘Why do I have to take him in my mouth? I thought my figa was made for a man’s prick, not my mouth.’
‘All part of the seduction, cara. Men will stick their pricks in all our orifices, including our back passage. If you are really fortunate your patron might seek to give you pleasure too, by sucking your figa. Never, ever, ask him to do it, though. The initiative must come from him. There are men who enjoy the taste and smell of us.’ Apples and Musk. Of course.

ARC review of Safe at Last by Maya Banks

Safe at Last (Slow Burn, #3)Safe at Last by Maya Banks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

****ARC provided by publisher for an honest Review******

When you think, the words form to praise about this book. But to express the feelings in actual words is very different and its never easy to express the love of books just in words. These are just felt from the heart.

This is a story about second chances, love, trust, betrayal. It's a story about two lost souls just lost due to cruelty of evil. Zack and Anna Grace were high school sweethearts. They had the perfect dream of american family . Before any of their dream could materializes Gracie disappears out of blue moon leaving Zack clueless and helpless forcing him to think the worst.

When after twelve years Anna Grace and Zack come face to face, they are faced with anger, hate, fear and that was the real test for the couple. It broke my heart when Zack was frustrating, in pain and in ignorance of what had happened with Gracie. I felt anger, despair at the accusation thrown against him. This book makes you feel, to question, your heart wants answers. This book isn't just about a love story. It's about too much. It's about giving another chance, to stand up strong in the moment of weakness. A perfect story about love, friendship and second chances and there are few spices which I am sure will keep you glued and leave your mouth hanging.....
