This was my first erotic historical romance but I wouldn't say there was a lot of romance... a lot of sex but not romance. I have to admit the erotic scenes were hot but, for me, there were too many and not enough story. Some may prefer that but it wasn't for me. I like a rich story where the sex is a secondary bonus. Plus I didn't like the hero at all. One plus of the book is that it was a quick and easy read.
