As the madam of Aphrodite’s Grotto, the most infamous brothel in London, Coral Smythe knows everything possible about men’s needs and desires. Yet she’s never experienced the love of a single man-not even that of Captain Isaac Wargate whose hawk-like eyes stare at her with both condemnation…and lust.


Captain Wargate heartily disapproves of the sensuous madam who always wears a golden mask. She lures the officers from both his ship and their duty. But when Coral herself is offered up as the prize in a game of chance, Wargate impulsively enters…and wins.


Now the puritanical navy captain has just seven nights to learn everything he can about the But when Coral is threatened by the new owner of Aphrodite’s Grotto, will Wargate take a chance on the woman beneath the mask…and on love?


Review: The Ice Princess is a great short read.

Coral is a woman who hides herself behind a mask and never lets anyone see the true woman. She started selling her body when she was fourteen to help her sister and herself survive. She changed her name to Aphrodite and hasn’t slept with a man in two years.

Captain Wargate just wants to get his crew and make sure they don’t get into trouble at the Grotto. He has been wanting Coral for awhile but hides his feelings. Isaac makes Coral think he doesn’t like her and that’s the way it is. Until one night Coral is the prize in a card game and Isaac wins her.

I enjoyed watching Isaac court Coral. She didnt know how to take him because all her defences start coming down. He gets her to trust him enough to take off her mask and lets him see the woman underneath.

It was great being able to meet the real Isaac and Coral and watching them start trusting each other. I like Elizabeth Hoyt’s books and enjoy the way she writes. Thanks for a great story.
