Bronwyn is a curvy woman whose taking classes for lifeguard duty. There she meets to sexy men who sweep her off her feet.
I’m torn on this book. On one hand, this author has a great writing style. However, with such a short story, the romance was very rushed and it could have used another edit. After much thought, I’m going with three stars for this story. It was a good read if you want something quick and hot but it’s very two dimensional in terms of plot and characters.
This would be great to read if you were on a train or taxi ride or even carpool. As long as you don’t blush as the really hot sex scene. I liked Summer Job, Summer Love and I would certainly check out more from this author.

This is the second book in the Virgins no more series and we get to meet the people from the first book. The love story in this book; however, focuses on John Smith and Theodora Ridley. John Smith is the best friend of Theodora´s big brother Barnabas and Theodora has loved John since she was a little girl. John has also had his eyes on Theodora for a long time, although he got a little side tracked by the beautiful Sapphira´s introduction to the social scene. When he and Theodora get together during a stolen moment at a ball he knows without a doubt that it is Theodora he wants. They get married, but now John has to show
Theodora that he truly loves her and that he didn´t only marry her because he took her virginity.
This was another great short story, although it focused a little more on side characters and left less room for John and Theodora. One got a small portion of the insecure feelings that Theodora had regarding why John chose to marry her. Although I am not a person craving angsty reads, the story could have explored Theodora´s doubts and the couple growing together in their marriage a little more. It all went a little too smoothly. Both this book and the previous one feel like chapters from a bigger book, told from each couples point of view. I
like the characters, both the main ones and the side characters. I can already see the next chapter/couple lined up and I look forward to reading about them.
Almost a Virgin is an enjoyable, quick read that I would recommend!

It is time for Barnabus Ridley, Vicar of the Town, to get married and he has his eyes on Georgina Arnott. Georgina is very happy when Mr Ridley asks for her hand and she is determined to please her husband in their everyday life and in bed. Although knowing pretty much nothing about how to be in the marital bed, Georgina is passionate and curious, to her husband’s great delight.
I really liked the story about Georgina and Barnabas and how they learn how to be husband and wife. Neither of them has any real knowledge about what it means to share a life with another person and it is interesting to see them learning as they go. Especially Barnabas has to learn to let go of his strict and stuffy ways and embrace the life, laughter and noise Georgina brings to his house. They don´t really know each other, but in bed they come together with love and passion.
This is a short story. I think though that the author manages this format very well (and I think writing a good short story is harder than writing a longer one). She even manages to introduce some side characters. When considering the short story format I didn´t really miss anything.
A perfect quick erotic read in a historical setting.
