    4. Elspeth James world is safe and predictable Mr Blackburn recognizes there is much to the upright Miss James as her inner fire taunts his cold exterior When a seemingly straightforward business deal starts to blur the lines drawn are no longer about the exterior but painting hearts long isolated.Elsa Holland opens reader s minds to beauty that many might overlook with characters that are uncommonly alluring Mr Blackburn and Elspeth James were studies in contradictions as frailty vs fortitude, gl [...]

    5. Elsa Holland s books go from strength to strength, this is by far my favourite and I loved the first two so that should put it into perspective how crackalicious this one is.The lush world and prose is still there but this book brings in some darker undertones which are delicious and I want note to author please write faster What I loved where the strength of the characters, Elspeth is no shrinking violet and Blackburn, well he is just the thing dark desires are made of.I don t want to give awa [...]

    6. Riveting and intense No holds barred love story.Victorian romance combines an erotic underground and sinister undertones, yet delivers a compelling love story Story unveils the darkly sensual world of the Collector s and their Painted Sisters The contractual agreement between the powerful Collectors and their tattooed living art floats somewhere between paid escort, mistress, and indentured servant By showing the complex variables negotiated for each individual relationship, the author avoided s [...]

    7. Yesterday, I was roughly 75% through with this book and at that point, I put it down because I knew I that I wanted to be able to finish this book uninterrupted Any time I read part of this book and had to stop for whatever reason, I found myself in a bit of a book hangover, the story still lingering in my mind, waiting until I had the chance to get back to it I told myself yesterday that the day would not end without me finishing it That is exactly what happened Last night before I fell asleep [...]

    8. WonderfulAnother amazing and unique story not just an interesting erotic historical romance but also a complex story with a powerful hero and heroine You will not regret giving it a whirl I give it 5 stars inspite of the once again appalling proof reading words missing, misspelling, dollars spent in an English shop , drapes instead of curtains I could go on Get a new editor or proof reader who actually reads what you ve written because it s wonderful inspite of mistakes.Cannot wait for next book [...]

    9. It get a point deducted for rushing through the end It builds up so beautifully, but the last three chapters are lacking The whole problem with the skinners is is not really resolved and the relationship between the main characters jumps like three gears without any further explanation Just too many questions left out in the open.

    10. I COULDNT PUT IT DOWN Really good writing I enjoyed every page thank you, I liked that the characters didn t just fall into it it was earned

    11. I love the Velvet Basement series and Elsa Holland s writing Ive been remiss about the review for this book, until the reread I just completed I love Blackburn and Elspeth just as much this time around Elspeth has had colorful dangerous life experiences, but has spent the last 10 years or so as a governess to the Painted Sisters They are women who Collectors very wealthy, powerful men purchase for the sole purpose of tattooing their full body, to be a piece of living art Blackburn is a dominatin [...]
