Kurzbeschreibung

Same book, new cover!
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 origins.
Miss Clarissa Onslowe is also on board, traveling to take up the role of governess to the daughter of the wealthy planter Mr. Lemarchand. There is nothing to keep her in England. An indiscretion five years before led to her reputation being ruined; her abolitionist family has disowned her and no gentleman would marry her now. But now she seeks redemption with her family by revealing the truth about the miserable lives of the slaves who work on the sugar plantations.
Clarissa’s previous encounter with love has left her aroused and restless, and Allan is a man for whom lust is a daily pastime; thrown together belowdecks during the long sea voyage, they embark on a sensual odyssey where no desire is left untested. But if they thought their exploration and ecstasy could not be bettered, then there are more pleasures to be taken and boundaries to be broken at their island destination—where “March” Lemarchand, sugar king and master of seduction, awaits them both…

A marvel of sex, smarts, and wit—Pam Rosenthal/Molly Weatherfield

Unabashedly wicked … titillating, witty, and very, very sexy—Colette Gale

A torrid, twisting tale of a trio bound together by love, lust and tropical latitudes. Scorching!—Maggie Robinson

This is a substantially revised version of "Forbidden Shores" published in 2007 under the name of Jane Lockwood. Warning, this book contains explicit adult material.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wirklich "unusual" 17. März 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich kann mich hier nur in allem der in "Amazon.com" veröffentlichen Rezension anschließen!
Ein wirklich außergewöhnlicher Schreibstil, es macht sogar für mich Deutschen Leser Spaß, das Englisch dieser Autorin zu lesen.
Als Segler kann ich beurteilen wie ungewöhnlich realistisch die Schilderung der Atlantik-Überquerung mit ihren teilweise widrigen und gefährlichen Umständen ist, und die freimütig geschilderten hocherotischen Szenen werden dadurch noch glaubhafter und interessanter,
Dies ist Alles in Allem Erotische Literatur der Sonderklasse für wirklich aufgeschlossene Leser

5.0 von 5 Sternen Unusual 15. Januar 2014
Von IngridH - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
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 ménage à trois romance.

The 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 over.

The 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 slave 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 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 this quote 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 to."

And, of course, Janet Mullany has an exquisite ability with words. 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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Not your typical Romance. 15. Dezember 2013
Von Thomas Lawson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I do not normally enjoy that romance novels, however this is not the average romance novel. This is erotica - meaning highly sexual scenes that are not appropriate for children. That being said, this is a great book. Follow a lust that blossoms aboard a ship between Alan Pendale and the spinster Clarissa in the year 1800. Although neither meant for it to happen, they are pulled in by their passion for one another for a truly erotic ride. I will be checking out more of Janet Mullanys books, she has ab unique style that I enjoy very much.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fine historical romance with a dollop of sensual delight 24. Dezember 2013
Von Grady Harp - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Janet Mullany is an enigma. Her background includes such a wide spectrum of endeavors as archaeologist, editor/proofreader, classical music radio announcer, and box office manager: Her forte is solidly in the historical romance genre and there are few contemporary authors who can keep pace with her output of genuinely fine novels such as A CERTAIN LATITUDE. She hails from England but happily she has lived in the US for some years now - happily, because she is that kind of author about whom we can point with pride as being `home grown.' It is not unusual for the Brits to have a corner on romance novels, historically and currently: to wit, EL James controversial `Fifty Shades of Grey' is a trilogy that has consumed the fascination of the devotees of sexually explicit population here in the US, and she is only one of the British authors unafraid to challenge the social mores of the times. Now along comes Janet Mullany whose ability to make pages sizzle with sexual innuendoes is matched by her uncanny ability to paint credible figures from the past with such finesse.

Briefly, this novel takes place in 1800 with a ready-made setting for an amorous journey aboard a ship bound for the Caribbean. We immediately meet one solicitor Allan Pendale, the youngest son of the Earl of Frensham, who is traveling to the West Indies to carry inform his estranged father of his mother's death: he also is absorbed with a fecund curiosity to investigate his origins. Also on board ship is a tainted lady, Clarissa Onslowe, whom we meet being accosted by a ship's mate. Clarissa's abolitionist family are relieved to see her depart for the Caribbean where she is to be employed as a governess to a Mr. Lemarchand, a man we later discover rules the sugar plantations and is a lothario of sorts. In swift time Allan and Clarissa conjoin in sensational pleasures that explore all manner of satisfactions, only to prepare for the surprises that await them upon arrival in the Caribbean. But the other aspect that becomes the stronger part of this tale is the manner in which evils of the plantation slaves are made known to Clarissa's haughty abolitionist parents.

It is this marriage of sensual writing of the fist order mixed with lavender romance and historical exposes that make Janet Mullany's book such a refreshing pleasure to read. She does know how to entertain her growing company of readers! Grady Harp, December 13

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hot! A great read - very erotic. 15. Dezember 2013
Von Crystal Lanham - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is an amazing tale of two lonely people finding comfort with one another, while travelling by ship in 1800. Clarissa is a disowned spinster, traveling to a new job of being a governess. Alan is just going back to his parents home.Although he should not pursue Clarissa, he can not help himself. We know they will find release together, but will they find love?

This book is intended for mature audiences, this book does contain multiple erotic scenes. Definitely a great read for the ladies!

4.0 von 5 Sternen 2 words to readers of sweet, romantic romance: Stay away. 28. Januar 2014
Von OLT - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
(Maybe 3.5 stars) Some like it hot, some just like it warm. If you're into warm and romantic, this is NOT your cup of tea. I like Janet Mullany's little Regency romps, such as A Most Lamentable Comedy or The Rules of Gentility, which are funny, sexy romance spoofs, and since she's not a very prolific writer I read whatever historical fiction I can find that she writes.

I went into this with Eyes Wide Open, knowing it bordered on erotica, so nothing that I read shocked me. And as historical fiction, it was a good and well-written read, set in 1800, with the main characters from England and most of the book taking place in the West Indies at the time of sugar cane plantations and the slave trade.

Slavery is not downplayed here nor are the Western white men overlords and plantation owners made to look at all pretty, so you can feel you're getting some history and social commentary mixed in with your "romance". Mullany did her research and includes a list of books she consulted about the slave trade and plantation life in the West Indies of the 1800s at the end of the story.

As for the "romance", it's fairly explicit and erotic, but the characters themselves (the H and the H and the h. Yes, we have 3-part harmony) are complex, flawed, interesting and very real. And Mullany does a good job with love and lust. Relationships can be messy and not always are a straightforward fairy-tale bonding of one H and one h till death do them part, with never again a lusting for somebody else. If you can handle this truth, you may enjoy this book.

I personally would have preferred a tad less sex in the book, since erotica is not really my thing, but I didn't find it particularly offensive, just a bit overwhelming to the non-romance part of the storyline. There's serious treatment of slavery, plantation life, abolitionists and slavers, relationships both familial and romantic, the search for oneself, man's cruelty to man, and the book has some powerful moments in it. They could have been even more powerful with more time spent on them.
