I mean what kind of hero would blackmail the woman he supposedly loved in the past into being his mistress for the purpose of revenge? But as I continued reading, I found myself seeing a man who had been devastated by the loss of a woman he dearly loved. He felt that she had just tossed him aside like so much trash and betrayed him with another man. Oh course blackmail isn't the answer, but I could kind of understand why he did it and feel for him.
On the other hand, I loved the heroine, Cassandra. She was a self-made woman who instead of being defined by the grief she had gone through in the past, built a respectable and another not so respectable business all by herself. She is one of the strongest, most self-assured, determined woman I think I have ever read about. The thing I didn't like about each of them was that they wouldn't confront the problems or issues they had with each other and that in turn led to a lot of unneeded angst and misunderstandings. The last few chapters I just bawled as what really happened years ago to break them up came out in the opening and of course how they handled the reveal.
I liked him almost better than the hero. This is a great read and I am glad I stuck with it and not given up after the first couple of chapters. View all 8 comments.

While at the home of a client, fitting her for a dress, Cassandra encounters the one man she never thought to see again: Nathan Manning, Earl of Blackhearth, just returned from four years in India and now visiting his aunt, her client.
Na Cassandra Willows runs her own lucrative business as a popular seamstress to the ton , the wealthy women and their daughters of high Society London - while behind closed doors she discreetly creates special toys for the men and their wives or mistresses to enjoy. Nathan never forgot Cassandra, the girl he was going to marry when they were young despite her background and his parents' objections. When she stood him up on the night of their elopement and his father revealed that she'd thrown him over for another man, he left the country in anger but watched her from across the world, setting spies on her to tell him every detail.
Now that he's seen her again, he's determined to have his revenge. Blackmailing her with exposure of her lucrative sex toy business, he begins an intense affair with Cass that was meant to get her out of his system so he could find a proper wife amongst the Society women. Cass has had her share of lovers since that night when she didn't elope with Nathan, but none of them ever compared to him. Now older, harder, colder, he has even more power to excite her than ever before. As they both battle to get the upper hand in this new and angry affair, the silent truth of that night four years ago looms between them.
Cassandra is a self-made woman, strong and sexually determined. Nathan is more than a match for her, and their encounters are sizzling and exciting. The pacing is swift and heady, but the story moves almost too fast, the book too short to really give you a chance to appreciate the moment. There's very little in the way of sub-plot, so focused on Nathan and Cassandra's affair and hearts as it is.
The period is a bit vague - it reads as a Victorian-era novel, with the descriptions of the clothes and Nathan's India stay, yet at one point a character mentions the Prince Regent - who was quite a bit earlier.
See a Problem?
That was a bit confusing, almost as if Michaels wasn't confident enough of her historical knowledge and accuracy to be clear about it. Since the story takes place in a bit of a bubble, it doesn't matter all that much, but I like to have historical context and that extra dose of realism.
A passionate, heart-felt and at times edgy romance between two erotically-charged and endearing characters, Taboo is a head-spin of desire and release. The graphic scenes aren't over-the-top or at all cheesy, and the acts aren't particularly kinky, if that's not your style. It's more about the emotions of the two, and the seemingly hopeless case they present. And it's a gorgeous cover. Quando este regressa, vai visitar a sua tia, detentora de um grande estatuto e poder na sociedade, mas algo de inesperado acontece. Cassandra Willows, costureira de renome, tem amigos poderosos. Jul 17, Ana Maria rated it it was amazing Shelves: Aunque los protagonistas no tienen que ver con las hermanas, solo son conocidos.
La hija de un sastre y el hijo de un noble se enamoran y deciden huir a Gretna Green. De la Novela corta. De la mejor manera posible. Hasta que la verdad salga a la luz. Y he leido muchisimas peores ni me hagan acordar de la "Esclava victoriana" Desejava que voltasse para ela, e receava que isso acontecesse. Em resumo, a sua vida estava virada de pernas para o ar e totalmente descontrolada.
Apimentando, assim, todo o seu romance e culminando num intenso final feliz. Se eu casasse com uma mulher, tinha de ser uma como a Cassandra Willows. Nathan sofreu com o abandono de Cass no passado, quando ambos tinham feitos juras de amor. No entanto Cass ainda nutre alguns sentimentos profundos por Nathan.
Jun 28, Sheila rated it it was amazing Recommended to Sheila by: Hot Mojave Knights Cassandra is seamstress to the ton. She also makes sex toys for their husbands and lovers. Nathan Manning comes back from India and her past. His anger at her for leaving him waiting at their elopement causes him to blackmail her into a sexual relationship as he looks for a bride. I loved these characters. I wanted to knock Nathan upside the head for his obstinacy and anger against Cassandra. I loved Cassandra's patience. She knows why she did not show up but refuses to tell him for several reas Cassandra is seamstress to the ton.
She knows why she did not show up but refuses to tell him for several reasons. The sex was hot! I loved how Cassandra's toys were used between them. The feelings behind that hotness remained true through the years they were apart. On Cassandra's part the love had deepened. Nathan had to learn what real love was. He also had to learn that all is not what he thought and that he had much to learn. I plan on reading more of Jess Michaels.
Nothing Denied (Albright Sisters, book 3) by Jess Michaels
I enjoy her stories. I also loved the cover on Taboo. Feb 23, Zeek rated it did not like it Shelves: Regency romantica that didnt really do it for me. He was mean, because of a big misunderstanding, and I didnt buy her.
She's a highly sought after modiste of the ton- who does sex toys as a side business. I would have been totally cool with this little twist- if it werent for how she became a women of questionable morals for the time. Skimmed through much of it and had no interest in finishing it. DNF Beauti Regency romantica that didnt really do it for me.
DNF Beautiful cover though Mar 01, Michelle rated it it was amazing. She is so confident, charming and has a secret strength in her that I admire. A Most Scandalous Position. Rogue for a Night. Kiss of the Rose.

Taken by the Duke. A Measure of Deceit. I'll still read Ms. As I've said before, writers have some good books and some not so good. This one is not so good. I pushed to give it a 2. The best of the series!! This series has the steam of 50 Shades of Grey -- but set in Victorian times with very strong women who know what they want! Loved the author and book. I really liked this book.
The hero is scarred and scared and finds himself trying to punish, not only himself, but the heroine. The "excitement" is full-blown and well descriptive, along with the "toys". I was almost crying at one point, feeling the pain as if it came off of the pages and wrapped around me. I like the way Ms. Michaels writes, it leaves you breathless and wanting more. I also enjoyed that Ms. Michaels wrote a story that has some "Taboo" subjects, that still might shock some people. This was my second book by Ms.
Michaels that I read in as many days. I will continue to read more from her. This is the story of two people from different classes who fall in love but are torn apart until years later when they meet again in London. He decides that he should blackmail her for leaving him all those years ago.
Series: Albright Sisters
The last of the book you started to understand where the characters came from and the initial love they shared. I felt if she would have added a few more pages of content - it would have been another winner. Over all - I might wait to read a few more review before I buy this author again at full price. This author also writes as Jenna Petersen.
