As the madam of Aphrodite's Grotto, the most infamous brothel in London, Coral Smythe knows everything possible about men's needs and desires. Yet she's never experienced the love of a single man-not even that of Captain Isaac Wargate whose hawk-like eyes stare at her with both condemnation...and lust.

Captain Wargate heartily disapproves of the sensuous madam who always wears a golden mask. She lures his officers from both his ship and their duty. But when Coral herself is offered up as the prize in a game of chance, Wargate impulsively enters...and wins.

Now the puritanical navy captain has just seven nights to learn everything he can about the mysterious madam and what she knows of a man's desires. But when Coral is threatened by the new owner of Aphrodite's Grotto, will Wargate take a chance on the woman beneath the mask...and on love?

Elizabeth Hoyt is a New York Times bestselling author of historical romance. She also writes contemporary romance books under the name Julia Harper. Elizabeth lives in central Illinois with two children, and one husband.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it I loved it so much!! I'm so happy Ms. Hoyt decided to give Coral her own HEA!! Coral is the madam of a brothel called Aphrodite's Grotto. She was one of the secondary characters from the first book in the Princes series, [book:The Raven Prince|28863]. I was intrigued by her ever since then, so I was very excited to read her story. Captain Isaac Wargate is not interested in brothels, but he's forced to go to Aphrodite's Grotto to round up his men. Needless to say, he's intrigued by Aphrodite herself. Coral's situation is a bit different now. She hasn't sold her body in two years and Jimmy Hyde owns the majority portion of Aphrodite's Grotto. This is because there was a fire that damaged part of the building and she was forced to borrow money from Hyde. In all, Hyde puts Coral as the wager on the table. Seeing her unease, Isaac decides to help her by participating, and he eventually wins the wager. Anyway, I'm not gonna ramble on and on about the plot. Isaac is exactly the kind of man that Coral needed. He is a man of honour and he puts her needs before his. He's very perceptive and can see through her wiles. He takes his time getting to know her by slowly unraveling her. Even though this is only a novella, it had a strong relationship building with the right amount of angst. I loved seeing Isaac slowly getting to know her as a person and showing her things that she's never experienced before. He was perfect for her. As for Coral, I'm glad that her character was the same as the one we'd been introduced to in the first book of this series. I was a little anxious that her allusiveness and her boldness would not be reflected as clearly as they were in the first book. But I was wrong. As usual, with novellas that I loved, I wish this one was longer lol I wanted to see Coral bargaining with the shareholders, and I wanted to see Isaac buying the ring - among other things. But it was amazing nevertheless :')
