Book review: A Courtesan’s Guide to Getting Your Man by Celeste Bradley and Susan Donovan (9780312532567)

Books with transitions between times is a difficult feat to keep both periods interesting and I found this book fell short. It is set in 19th century London and present day Boston. I preferred the historical transition about Ophelia, a woman who did not want to be ruled by a man and became a courtesan to take charge of her own life. However, the story about Piper, a museum curator who finds out about Ophelia’s secret life, was not as interesting to me.

The book is definitely erotic and intriguing and I did like that aspect of the book. I just think the present day piece could have been left out.  I did read the book in one sitting and recommend it to people who like romantic mysteries and hot, hot sex scenes.

Thanks to LibraryThing’s Early Reviewers for giving me the opportunity to review this book.
