Review: The Harlot by Saskia Walker

The Harlot
Saskia Walker
331 ( on my e-reader )
Historical fiction, romance

The story:

It is a Dark Era, one when a lusty lass will do what she must to survive. Even if it means bartering flesh for a palmful of coins… 

Forced to watch her mother burned at the stake and separated from her siblings in the aftermath, Jessie Taskill is similarly gifted, ripe with a powerful magic that must stay hidden. Until one night when she's accused by a rival, and Jessie finds herself behind prison walls with a roguish priest unlike any man of the cloth she has known. 

In reality, Gregor Ramsay is as far from holy as the devil himself, but his promise of freedom in return for her services may be her salvation. Locked into a dubious agreement, Jessie resents his plan to have her seduce and ruin his lifelong enemy. But toying with Gregor’s lust for her is enjoyable, and she agrees to be his pawn while secretly intending to use him just as he is using her

The view of a book addict:

I didn’t have any trouble getting into this book and it didn’t take me long to love the main characters of this story. There were a lot of steamy scenes in this book and I loved all of them. But I also love the story, the way the two main characters danced around each other.
You could only wait for the moment they would confess their love for each other, but the story around it made the book really interesting

The verdict of a book addict:

A good book with a lot steamy scenes, if you like your books hot and steamy this is your book!
