Smashwords book reviews by MK Alexander

  • The Blanket Hornpipe on Sep. 07, 2013

    I thoroughly enjoyed this intimate romp through the waning days of the Victorian Era which takes place in Portsmouth England. And, I recommend it to anyone interested in Masterpiece Theatre and sex. Admittedly, this is my first foray into an erotic novel, and I found many of the sex scenes rather business-like, though exactly in keeping with the storyline. The author pays great attention to historical detail, from dialog to plumbing, and from food to fashion. She creates a highly immersive world, very authentic and very satisfying. An excellent read!
