The Temptation of Laura

The Temptation of Laura
By Rachel Brimble
February 2014

Laura Robinson has always been dazzled by the glamour of the stage. But perhaps acting and selling one's favors are not so different-for Laura must feign pleasure with the men she beds to survive. Now, with her only friend at death's door and a ruthless pimp at her heels, escaping her occupation seems impossible. Hoping to attract a gentleman, she attends the theater. Yet the man Laura captivates is no customer, but a rising star and playwright. 

Adam Lacey has been driven to distraction since the moment he saw Laura. She is his ideal leading lady come to irresistible life-and so much more. Certain they can make the perfect team on and off stage, he is determined to win her heart-and discover her story. But that is precisely what Laura fears. And she has no idea that Adam harbors shameful secrets of his own. Will the truth free them to love-or destroy all their dreams? 

Between The Pages 
This story is more than just a historical romance. The plot has a fictional twist of two people who want more out of life. They have dreams of making it big in the theater and find each other along the way. I was surprised by the heroine’s choice of how to earn money when things got tough, but then remembered this story was more than just romance. A well written and engaging story.
