When Faye Grantham inherits Perdition House, her family’s secret shame, she expects to sell the property for millions and marry her long time fiancé.My Thoughts: My, oh my! Perdition House was sure hot! Fans were required when reading this book! It had a mixture of erotica and ghosts that were written very well together. The plot and details in this book were fascinating. I found myself liking this book tremendously.
But the spirits who still reside in the mansion have other ideas. Trapped in the bordello, the women who lived and worked there wait to tell their stories to Faye.
The “girls” don’t just hang around waiting. They control Faye’s libido, influence her decisions and drive her into the arms of two very different men.
Liam Watson wears comfort like most men wear cologne. With an interest in adventurous sex, he’s more man than he first seems.
Mark McLeod is a strong, decisive businessman who was not meant to be more than a hot one-night stand. But Mark is in no hurry to end their liaison, and hopes to continue Faye’s lessons in sensuality.
As Faye becomes enthralled with the mansion, she’s embroiled in a life-changing situation that has her re-examining her engagement, her business decisions, and her beliefs about herself.
As the spirits reveal themselves one by one, Faye learns their stories: how they came to Perdition House, why they joined the women there and some of the secrets that only a high-class bordello could hold.
But can decades-old secrets affect Faye’s life today?

I was taken immediately by surprise when I started reading this book. The story opened up with the main character Faye seeking a stranger to have sex with. Being thrust into sexual tension right away gave me an inclination on how the rest of the book was going to be: sexy. I was captivated on how well the author was able to capture all of the thoughts and feelings of the characters. The sex scenes were tastefully described that for once I did not find myself skipping on any of the love scenes. In fact, Faye's encounters with Mark, and later on with Liam, had me steaming.
I loved the characters of Mark and Liam that I had a tough time deciding who I liked the most. Both of these men knew how to please Faye completely. These two were very sexy that it got to the point that I wanted to yell at Faye to leave her fiancé and simply keep the two men. Though I have a feeling who might be the favored man, I want to know more on how Faye would decide between Mark and Liam in the sequel.
What also made this book fascinating was the supernatural elements. I love reading about ghosts stories so I found the idea of ghosts in this novel quite alluring. Bonnie Edwards did an excellent job in introducing the idea of Perdition House being haunted. I loved when Faye arrived at the place, everything was pristine clean. However, the next day it was filthy dirty. I also enjoyed how footsteps and voices were being heard when there shouldn't be any. It had its spooky elements but it was not scary. The reader instantly comes to learn who the ghosts were and how these ghosts become central characters. Honestly, a story about a haunted bordello with dead hookers was quite fun!
I really enjoyed reading about each of the ghosts' stories: Belle, Felicity, Hope, Lizzie, and Annie. Their stories gave an insight to the reality of why many women turned to prostitution. Some like Felicity and Belle did it to find independence and/or because they enjoyed sex. While others like Hope, Lizzie, and Annie were trying to run away from destructive men in their lives. Some of these stories were sad while others were simply amusing. Only snippets of each of these girls' stories were told, which made me want more.
Overall, I did not expect to like this book very much the way I did. I was very fascinated with the supernatural side of this book and enjoyed the delicious sex scenes. I appreciated that this book was written in a tasteful manner that I did not feel uncomfortable at all nor bored. I am looking forward to the next book. I rate it:
