E EvangelistAlthough I am a big fan of Janet Mullany s work in contemporary erotic romance Tell Me More Hidden Paradise this was my first experience with one of her many historical experience with one of her many historical A Certain Latitude was originally released nder a different pen name and it would have remained Dangerous Work unread by me even at the temporary price of FREE if she hadn t reissued itnder the one I already knew and trusted I couldn t tell you if what she refers to as substantial revisions made this a better book than the original but I can say that A Certain Latitude far exceeded any expectations I might have had going in and is as good as any other historical erotic romances I ve read What made this book so enjoyable for me was what I ve now come to expect in Janet Mullany s work namely a plot that turns a well worn trope on its head and scenes of intimate passion which envelop not only the titular hero and heroine but also the supporting characters who enter their sphere with intentions both good and evilThe notion of civilized people devolving into depravity while isolated in a primitive place where the rules of polite society don t apply is a trope less commonly found than it once was It dates back to a time when the old skool romances were the norm and often featured Flavor and Soul ugly racial stereotypes as a lazy shortcut in lieu of actual character development But while it s true that the veneer of civilization began to decompose for Allan and Clarissa even before they reached their destination it s clear that what remained was there all along irrespective of what would take place on the island It needed only the closearters of the ship to emerge and the all too knowing encouragement of one dissolute and dominant man to be forced into full flower as they move inexorably toward their shared destinyI must emphasize most strongly that A Certain Latitude is a true erotic romance in every possible way The sexual encounters involving each of the featured characters are absolutely essential to the plot as well as those which occurred well before any of them had arrived on the island The scenes we experience as the story nfolds are explicit and nforgettable with pairings that may shock those Forgery, Replica, Fiction unused to such graphic detail It s rare to find suchnflinching scenes in historicals that are written so well and in such loving detail although they do exist in the works of Kate Pearce Robin Schone Sharon Page and Maire Claremont Thanks to A Certain Latitude Janet Mullany is now a member of that elite list for me and I ll be seeking out all her other historicals for another chance to experience that special reading joy I won this from the Goodreads First Reads program Many thanks to Jane Mulaney This is a story about the relationship of three people and how the era of slaver affected their lives Clarissa cast aside by her family for an indiscretion travels to the Caribbean Islands to become a governess and hopes to ingratiate herself to her family by writing about The Horrors Of Slavery And How Wrong horrors of slavery and how wrong is On the boat she meets Alan a lawyer who is going to visit his father to impart the news that his mother has died Alan and Clarissa embark on a sexual adventure based solely on lust Once Clarissa arrives on the island she begins a relationship by playing mistress to Marsh her employer There ensues a love triangle Marsh loves Alan Alan loves Clarissa and Clarissa loves Marsh I liked the book but I think the story of Alan s birth and the prising could have been developed Marsh s story also could have been detailed with background about his life All in all it s a good read and there was some wicked sex going on so it was an enjoyable read. He long sea voyage they embark on a sensual odyssey where no desire is left ntested But if they thought their exploration and ecstasy could not be bettered then there are pleasures to be taken and boundaries to be broken at their island destination where “March” Lemarchand sugar king and master of seduction awaits them bothThis is a substantially revised version of Forbidden Shores 2007 published nder the name of Jane Lockwood. ,
While this was a smexy historical it was also a journey for both Clarissa and Allan to find their place in the world It s always interesting to READ HISTORICALS AND REALIZE THAT PEOPLE historicals and realize that people very circumscribed by their circumstances and didn t have the opportunities that we take for granted today in a free society For Allan to find out view spoilerthe circumstances of his birth rocked his world hide spoiler This is a story that is definitely different As a historical this story gets pretty brutal when it comes to relaying the experiences of the slaves and actually puts the hero in the midst of that experience as he learns view spoiler that he is the child of a slave and therefore view spoiler that he is the child of a slave and therefore a slave himself hide spoiler Wow Janet Mullany writes a very interesting and sensual story A certain Latitude is a fast paced read with interesting characters that are well developed through out the story Miss Clarissa Onslowe is a sensual woman who discovers the delights of intimacy while on a long voyage across the ocean for a new position as a governess to a sugar plantation owner s daughter Allen Pendale the youngest son an Earl is delighted to be the man to teach her all the different ways a man and a woman can enjoy each others company Mr Marchland March the owner of the sugar plantation gives new meaning to the term sugar daddy March has a few things to teach both Alan and ClarrisaThis book is about Allan s journey to discover who he is and what he wants Clarrisa is trying to find her place in this world asstranged from her family due to a mistake she made many years before Clarissa is hoping she can se her experience on the plantat ion to write about how horrible the slaves are treated on these sugar plantations to please her abolitionist family and to try and make them proud and hopefully allow her to come home one day March teaches both Allan and Clarrisa a lot about themselvesI would recommend this book to any Historical erotic romance fansI received this book from the author for an honest review The book is certainly not for everyone It s extremely adult as many other reviewers have noted while also dealing with some of the most grave issues scarring history The story is not mainstream romance not even mainstream m nage trois romanceThe story starts out with the well known and much beloved trope forced proximity with a lovely twist on a ship and goes from there to extremely adult adventures for the liberally minded Janet Mullany pushes boundaries with her storytelling and her writing and you should like very frank very earthy details in your love scenes to fully enjoy what the author can offer She doesn t shy away from what many other writers happily and readily gloss right overThe book pairs two subjects you wouldn t think would work together very kinky explorations along with a serious eye opening look at the sugar trade on an island loosely Based On Antigua About Eight Or Ten Years Before The on Antigua about eight or ten years before the trade is abolished in England I cringed and my gut twisted while reading many of the passages involving slaves Not pretty You wouldn t think those subjects would mesh at all but in a weird way they do It s not as if modern people don t get Escape up to serious mischief while the problems of the world continue to rage on right in our faces However at the heart of it what holds the whole story together is a remarkable and easy to like heroine All you need to know about her is thisote from early in the book which portrays her character perfectly Whenever she wished she had had the moral courage to starve she was glad she had the good sense not toAnd of course Janet Mullany has an exuisite ability with wor. 1800 Allan Pendale lawyer and the youngest son of the Earl of Frensham is bound by ship for the West Indies to impart the news to his estranged father that his mother has died But he also has another mission to find out the truth of his originsMiss Clarissa Onslowe is also on board traveling to take p the role of governess to the daughter of the wealthy planter Mr Lemarchand There is nothing to keep her in England An indiscretion Forbidden ShoresDs Her voice is like rustling silk and you can read any of her work for the subtle beauty of her style alone Her depth of knowledge of the time period is effortlessly conveyed in her writing Lockwood aka Janet Mullany is one of the most frustrating because one of the most promising new romance writers out there The prose characterization and plotting of the first third of the book are good enough that there s no excuse for how the next two thirds fall apart Um what Where do I begin HOW do I begin to try to review this bookFirst let me say that I won this book in an entry as a first read and I d just like to say that while I did not exactly enjoy the book Janet Mullany writes beautifully This book was sort of like a train wreck or perhaps a double layer ooey gooey chocolate cake that your hips say you shouldn t even look at but cant take your eyes off of Her writing style causes you to keep turning the pages regardless of how strange and confusing the plot gets and confuse me it didI wont go into details because I hate when gets and confuse me it didI wont go into details because I hate when tell me all about a book I ve purchased before giving myself a change to read it and discover all of the shocking details on my own but I will say this this book was a combination of a naughty twist on Pride and Prejudice Roots and last but not least throw in some Brokeback Mountain to confuse the daylights out of the reader All in all I think the book holds great merit to be a good read The evidence in this is that I read it in less than 2 days even though I was thoroughly bewildered by most of the happenings However I dont nderstand the relationship between Allen and March or the significance of their escapades maybe though thats what some relationships are like Maybe some relationships dont hold any significance at all and dont need to in order to leave a lasting impression

expect that Ms Mullany you may want to consider revising the blurb a tad bit so to better prep potential readers A certain latitude indeed madame Now I m curious as to what the original version was like I started and finished this last night or rather this morning Hot Intelligent Hot Well written w moments of nexpected humour and a concurrent storyline re slaveryslave trade Oh did I mention HOT Suffice it to say that today I m sleep deprived and sucking hard on my venti Caramel Macchiato w a double shot A Certain Latitude was one of those reads where I was torn between speed reading so to learn what happens now dammit and slowing down so to enjoy being transported to a different era and circumstances Wanna guess what won out in the endOnly reason I didn t round p to 5 stars is that a couple of things didn t work for me Also I felt that the ending was a bit lacking almost as if the story was cut too short felt that the ending was a bit lacking almost as if the story was cut too short spoilerFor me an Epilogue noting how everyone fared after arriving on English soil settling in probably would ve satisfied better As is I didn t get the sense of a true romantic HEA bc I still wasn t sure where Clarissa s heart was at the end hide spoiler If you re looking for a book about a threesome with lots of steaming hot scenes then this is a book for you I was hoping for a little plot but it was a tad light as far as story goes Some of the events in the book might leave you wondering but if you just suspend belief a bit and go with the flow it ll be ok A copy of this book was
