He 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 pleasures to be taken and boundaries to be broken at their island destination where “March” Lemarchand sugar king and master of seduction awaits them bothThis is a substantially revised version of Forbidden Shores 2007 published under the name of Jane Lockwood A copy of this book was purchased by me for my own enjoyment while it was free at This review was originally posted at The Romance EvangelistAlthough I am a big fan of Janet Mullany’s work in contemporary erotic romance Tell Me More Hidden Paradise this was my first experience with one of her many historical novels A Certain Latitude was originally released under a different pen name and it would have remained unread by me even at the temporary price of FREE if she hadn’t reissued it under the one I already knew and trusted I couldn’t tell you if what she refers to as “substantial revisions” made this a better book than the original but I can say that A Certain Latitude far exceeded any expectations I might have had going in and is as good as any other historical erotic romances I’ve read What made this book so enjoyable for me was what I’ve now come to expect in Janet Mullany’s work namely a plot that turns a well worn trope on its head and scenes of intimate passion which envelop not only the titular hero and heroine but also the supporting characters who enter their sphere with intentions both good and evilThe notion of “civilized” people devolving into depravity while isolated in a primitive place where the rules of polite society don’t apply is a trope less commonly found than it once was It dates back to a time when the “old skool” romances were the norm and often featured ugly racial stereotypes as a lazy shortcut in lieu of actual character development But while it’s true that the veneer of civilization began to decompose for Allan and Clarissa even before they reached their destination it’s clear that what remained was there all along irrespective of what would take place on the island It needed only the close uarters of the ship to emerge and the all too knowing encouragement of one dissolute and dominant man to be forced into full flower as they move inexorably toward their shared destinyI must emphasize most strongly that A Certain Latitude is a true erotic romance in every possible way The sexual encounters involving each of the featured characters are absolutely essential to the plot as well as those which occurred well before any of them had arrived on the island The scenes we experience as the story unfolds are explicit and unforgettable with pairings that may shock those unused to such graphic detail It’s rare to find such unflinching scenes in historicals that are written so well and in such loving detail although they do exist in the works of Kate Pearce Robin Schone Sharon Page and Maire Claremont Thanks to A Certain Latitude Janet Mullany is now a member of that elite list for me and I’ll be seeking out all her other historicals for another chance to experience that special reading joy
