This had a decent start -- which, alas, spiraled down the toilet with a magnificent flush.(Warning: casual mention of spoilers.)The "I didn't realize you were actually another person because a few years have passed & you're disfigured by an accident and/or we've both grown older so I can't possibly be expected to know you!" trope isn't new (see: Wilkie Collins, Ellen Wood, et al). The problem is that Collins & Wood wrote authentic Victorian potboilers. Goofy suspension of disbelief doesn [...]
Excellent, but NC-17 content. Not erotic or kinky, but of a woman surviving her circumstances. In audiobook format, Ashford McNab's narration is stunning. I seem to have more respect for the book than other reviewers. Ashford Mcnab might be the reason
Think Danielle Steel with more sex. And the only reason I gave it a two was because of the sex. There were a couple of phrases that Cozette said that I was particularly fond of. Mark my words. The next I have a man and I am all hot and bothered, I am going to look him in the eyes and say, "My peach is weeping." If he stays, he is mine because he gets my sense of humor. If he bolts, aaaah, good riddance.
This book was excellent. I felt like I could see the characters. Every page was exciting to read. Amanda McIntyre sparks your interest on every page.
This was a beautifully done romance. At times it moves very slowly, but there is a reason. The author, through the words of the writer of the diary, is building the story. She's made your imagination fall back in time and feel what it was like in the 1800's. The grand manors, the carriage houses, the whore house, the dirt & nastiness of the streets. The main character, Cozette, learns what it is like to be a woman. Not so much, "the hard way", but more, it's time to do this what will the wor [...]
This book reads like a diary. The entries are written by Cozette depicting her life as unfortunate (or fortunate, depending on how you look at it) events that take her from situation to situation. The main theme is that she finds herself experimenting with various male partners. There is an overarching tale regarding a childhood love which add a plot to the tale.Narrator: Ashford MacNabPerformance: 5/5Ashford MacNab is a stellar performer. I love her voice, the accents, and the clarity of her re [...]
Christy bought this book in Kadena on Monday, read it, and told me I should read it. It's an "erotic novel" that has less sex in it than the typical JD Robb book, and for once, JD Robb/Nora Roberts actually beat this author's writing of them. An unbelievably quick read, and rather boring, and I feel dumber for having wasted an hour and a half reading the 423 pages. I shoulda just reread Salvation in Death, which was a great addition to the JD Robb series.
I loved "the Master and the Muses" so much that when it made several references to this book I had to read it. I was surprised by how far into the book it was before "the master" was mentioned but it was worth it and best of all it was worth the entire read.
Terrible dialogue. Bad writing. Not even great sex.
Solo diré que los libros como las personas llegan en su preciso momento.
I decided to venture into this book since I was in a reading rut and couldn't decide on what to read/listen to next. I adore the narrator Ashford MacNab, and that's another reason I chose to plunge into this book. I was ready to listen to something within the regency romance genre which was slightly gritty, realistic and nontraditional. Well, I definitely got that in this candid story with tragic elements of a woman fighting to survive in a world where women have very few advantages in society. [...]
L'inizio è molto duro e il finale è invece decisamente rosa, in mezzo c'è la maturazione di Cozette che fugge prima dalla famiglia degli zii, dove il cugino l'aveva molestata, poi da un orfanatrofio dove i bambini ospiti vengono trattati senza troppi riguardi ed infine da un bordello di bassa categoria per approdare prima in un bordello più elegante e poi come domestica nella casa degli Archibald, che sono prigionieri di un matrimonio combinato e così lei si dedica alle opere di beneficenza [...]
Me lei El diario de la Doncella de Amanda McIntyre de corrido y me gusto mucho, la protagonista es un sobreviviente que pasa del lado de su madre, a vivir con su tia, luego al orfanato y por ultimo a la calle, se viste de chico, se hace representante de una streeper de la epoca y al fin termina como doncella de una dama de la aristocracia. Al final tiene un giro que no me esperaba, aunque se empieza a intuir un poquito antes. La verdad por la sinopsis me imagine algo muy diferente pero me sorpre [...]
The format of this book is a diary of teenage Cozette as her life evolves in 1890's lower class England. The story held my interest enough to finish with only a little skimming but I did not like most of the choices she made. There was lots of sex but not enough romance.
So much promise at the beginning but you'll still get the classic ending so I am never recommending this. Simply stated, the book did not live up to its title. I've had enough of romance novels for now.
Surpreendentemente bom! Bem escrito e fora dos padrões comuns, o único erro foi o final que decepcionou completamente. Depois de uma história intensa eu espera sinceramente que houvesse um final mais bem escrito. Mas enfim, gostei da autora.
This book had a very loose plot in which many of the strands are left incomplete at the end. Though the plot was not well laid, the book was enjoyable.I did learn many new euphemisms for female genitalia.
Kind of Fanny Hill, or Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure updated, but less kinky. Got bored.
This is another in the box I bought at a garage sale. Hoping I'll find at least a couple that aren't too bad for my $5.00. Unfortunately, this isn't one. Such overwrought prose!! And who knew there were so many colorful names and descriptions for female genitalia?? Good grief!
I definitely prefer McIntyre's historical settings and elegant writing style in this genre. This wasn't really a prequel to The Master and the Muses, but does contain a common character. Very good.

Loved this book! I listened to it from audiobooks and maybe it was the narrator who did such a great job that made me love it but the whole story just captured me.
Written a lot better than most romance novels. Not super cheesy or insulting to women.
