Kimberly Killion is an author I have enjoyed reading since her debut in 2008. Her writing is witty, sexy and quickly pulls you in to the story. And this novella is no different. But this is not your traditional romance story. There is a happily ever after, even though it is very unconventional. While I am more of a traditional romance reader, I still enjoyed this story. It is a fun read with a great twist at the end. If you are looking for a great quick read, one that is scorching hot and by no means conventional, then this novella is for you.

A Romance Review
The 'education' of Alexandra was steamy as you could want. Whether its Vincent's course in how to talk dirty or Daphne's course in how to please a man with your mouth, Alexandra definitely was an apt pupil.
In hindsight, after the ending, a lot of small details that stood out to me made a lot more sense. Alexandra's inability to see her son, Daphne's seeming familiarity and position in the house that wasn't really in line with her professed job (as a servant) and even Sebastian's cool indifference to his wife. Like I said, Killion turns it around neatly and gives us a plausible explanation.
Definitely worth giving a shot!
