Book Description
Do not let the title fool you on this one, this is all lesbian and a hot read in more ways than one.

This is a lesbian love story based on the life of Annie Smith, a prostitute living in the Covent Garden area in the mid 1800's. The area was rife with prostitution during this era and held no exception to Annie's plight. Forced by her mother to work in this trade she is determined to find a way out of this life at any cost. When she meets a married man quite by sheer accident she is offered an unusual way to leave this sordid existence behind her.

Annie is extremely grateful for her new found role in life and for a while she accepts this to be the right choice. But soon her life will change again when she meets her Dark Cully's wife, Mrs. Rose Rotherham, a fine and beautiful woman who happens to be high up in the social circle of London. Annie is besotted with her and has to find a way into her life and when she manages to find that avenue there is literally, hell to pay.
 
My Thoughts
I enjoyed this read, and had no idea that the twist at the end was coming !
 
The character of Annie Smith is very believable and the author has developed her story beautifully, in a well researched book.
 
Don't be put off by the genre, yes this is a lesbian love story, but the story envelopes this beautifully and tastfully.
 
I'm looking forward to reading more from Shiralyn Lee.
