Elle, tome II of the Hotelles series, Emma Mars

Emma Mars delivers the sexy, enticing sequel to her first novel Hotelles and follows the adventures of a young French woman as she continues her carnal education in a mysterious Parisian hotel.

In a hotel room in Paris, a young woman named Elle experiences the most exquisite freedom and sensual pleasure she has ever known, thanks to Louie, the man who has conquered her completely.

So many things in life have changed since they first met. Her engagement to Louie’s deceptive brother, David, has been broken. Her mother has died. Yet Elle is wholly fulfilled with Louie, the master who heightens her senses and unleashes her deep, seductive power.

In the alluring Hôtel des Charmes, Louie takes Elle beyond her wildest fantasies. Exploring the boudoirs devoted to other courtesans—Mademoiselle Josephine, Deschamps, Kitty Fisher, Cora Pearl, and Valtesse de La Bigne—Elle willingly opens herself further. In sublime self-abandonment she discovers absolute ecstasy, absolute sweetness, absolute desire.

Then David unexpectedly returns, stirring up painful memories and threatening their bliss. Elle fears her education may soon be over. . . .

She does not understand that it has only just begun.

Hotelles

Hotelles, an erotic novel that takes place in the City of Love, came out in early April and is getting great reviews. I loved translating this book: Emma Mars knows how to craft an intriguing plot line; the sex scenes are hot; Paris — its glittering monuments, its cobbled streets, its Haussmannian grandeur — is described in lush detail; and the literary heritage of French Romanticism brings depth to the genre. This book is available in paperback, as an e-book, and in audio format.
