Title: Veronica COURTESAN
Author: Siobhan Daiko
Genre: Erotic/ Historic
I watch him watching us, imagining how he would take me.
I send him the message with my eyes.
This is who I am.
I am Veronica Franco.
I am a COURTESAN.
I court the cultural elite for fame and fortune, giving my body to many.
And I’m good. So very good. After all, I was taught by my mother, and mother always knows best.
How else to please the future King of France than with the imaginative use of Murano glass? How else to fulfil the desires of all yet keep my sense of self-worth?
But when disaster strikes and my life begins to unravel, I’ll have to ask myself one question:
Is it too late to give my heart to just one man?
Set in Venice 16th Century.
Advisory: sensuously erotic. 18+
Veronica Courtesan is a beautifully written story of a woman’s path to self discovery and pushing the boundaries. Siobhan has taken the reader on a journey through beautiful Venice and the many dangers and wonders that brings. Veronica is a woman who, unhappy in her marriage, seeks a better life. A life without boundary.
Siobhan’s writing is absolutely eloquent and poetic. I felt myself being drawn into Veronica’s world, feeling her every emotion and rejoicing at her triumph.
I strongly recommend this to any historical romance or erotic romance fan.
