The heroine is part of a secret, powerful organization of courtesans who wield influence from behind the throne of many countries She is supposed to be a benevolent presence in the hero s life until he takes a wife Hero is ruler of a made up country that was also featured in the book before this one, which was about his sister.There are some elements I really loved in the story and some that really bothered me, so I m doing reviewer math and giving this three stars.What I liked The worldbuilding The courtesan s wing of the palace was practically a character in and of itself It is featured in the prologue where the hero and his sister find it as children And then the heroine and her retinue from the secret organization restore it to its former glory The three features that stand out are the glass dome roof, the round bath pool, the round carpet that depicts all possible comforts the courtesan can provide the king There are pictures of sex acts, conversation, dining, sleeping, strategizing This is the heroine s world a This book has a prologue AND an epilogue That alone brought me untold joy I love the peek into the story at the start and the happily ever after bit at the end Harlequin s rarely have prologue and epilogues any That alone earned this book winning marks Then the prologue grabbed me by the um bits and pulled me willingly into the the story It was fabulous A great start to the book and it just improves from there I LOVED Sera She s trained to be a courtesan and so much She s extremely well educated, very sophisticated, is trained I Several forms of fighting styles, can fit into any social event and can plan one better than most event planners, was the CFO of a major worldwide charity organization but was taught to be subservient to the man she was gifted to Yup The shipped her off to the H, King Augustus as a pressie He was horrified at the thought of receiving a human woman as a gift A courtesan who s only goal was to please him in anyway he wanted her to He was so horrified that he was pretty unpleasant at the start He eventually loosened up and learned about the person and realized that in her presence he could be a man, not a king But it was fun to watch his struggles Ok, with that out of the way, I can move on to Sera s round rug You have to read the book to learn about the ro She was my dream heroine incredibly beautiful, smart, intelligent, well educated, has compassion and martial arts expert She was not queen till the ene but untouched as the title indicated He was not cruel but morally strict view spoiler Lord knows I didn t ask for you, but you ve come here labelled as my courtesan and I will cut the hand off anyone who touches you No kissing No sex No flirting with any of my employees Are we clear Above alldon t tempt me He was so yummy like a todler who doesn t play with his toy but don t want anybody else to play it However, he is a man, what can I expect Lol He didn t know what he d do if she liked it greedy and rough, because that wasn t him He wasn t drawn to explore the darker sides of desire, those places where control bled away and chaos sli As we all probably know by now, sex sells Particularly exotic sex set in a mystical semi surreal setting that completely invokes the sense of an odalisque in a magic harem mystique Lots and lots of erotica has been done with exactly that theme For the most part, KH has managed to push classic tropes of HPlandia to the extremes here I do think book is extremely well written I found myself laughing at various parts of the character s banter, I also found the world building, overall setting and the sense of mystique was done very convincingly In Old Skool Vintage HPlandia the h is almost always compared to the Evil OW and one of the defining traits of the h is that the H will definitely call her a Tart and spend a lot of page count berating her for it Usually because the h is forced to bargain giving the H the rights to use her body to save her father family business some random person her sister knows, but in reality the h is really sacrificing herself in a good cause to save something so it isn t really trafficking or prostitution, the h is showing her pure virtue by becoming a martyr The Evil OW is only in for money, so she gets banished to the mists of HPlandia and an elderly pet food billionaire never to know the glorious rewards of Forever True Love Besides in the Old Skool style, such rights to possession usually come with a wedding license, and as we know from our HP history, a wedding license makes ev
