And far too eccentric to see the threatIf she accepted the deal had her body tattooed and became Mr Blackburn’s living art his Painted Sister she would become a very wealthy woman Wealthy enough to do something to protect the girlsThe Painted Heart is a dark Victorian Romance with a rickly sensual gothic feel Riveting and intense No holds barred love storyVictorian romance combines an erotic underground and sinister undertones yet delivers a compelling love story Story unveils the darkly sensual world of the Collector's and their Painted Sisters The contractual agreement between the powerful Collectors and their tattooed living art floats somewhere between paid escort mistress and indentured servant By showing the complex variables negotiated for each individual relationship the author avoided skewing towards the repugnant However I wish a positive relationship had been detailed as well as the negativeFascinating characters especially the hero Blackburn I felt conflicted about Blackburn's background not necessarily a bad thing since it kept my interest On one hand I wanted background details On the other the mystery just worked The heroine was a strong figure but her rebellious antics and self deception becomes a bit too protracted Regardless I couldn't help but become wrapped up in their romance and looking forward to the HEAReally enjoyed the unusual aspects of the book Recommend to mature readers who don't mind graphic sensual elements I did have one problem with the storyline Semi spoiler The hero's past identity and actions which had inadvertently harmed the heroine was never fully resolvedAlso the editing was not great There were some misspellings ie 'rouge' instead of 'rogue' and punctuation errors However it wasn't bad enough to pull me out of the storyI do hope the author continues with the story of Meredith

They were selling her It didn't make any sense She Miss Elspeth James was the governess She prepared the girls to be selected as Painted Sisters she didn't become one And what made it all the worse was that it was to him that arrogant cold and infuriating Mr Blackburn She would have walkout out left the Hurley Review written April 11 2017Star Rating ★★★☆☆Heat Rating ☀☀☀☀☀ I received an Advanced Reader Copy ARC of this book for review as a result of an author call for reviews and my review of the ARC copy is here This review is for the as published Kindle edition of this book This is easily the best book of this series The world of the Velvet Basement explores different areas of sexual interest This book includes living canvases living art full body tattoos that are owned and shown off to other wealthy collectors The Painted Heart is the first book with a plot that extends outside the kink and the couple and the first book to include a mystery Both are wonderfulThere were some mechanics of the world of the Painted Sisters than confused me and needed to be better explained Specifically the issue of sex before and after a Canvas is painted seemed odd to me Also the way Blackburn wins one of the arguments felt off The great terror of being a Painted Sister is a Skinner someone who takes their skin before they die naturally And yes that means she is murdered for her skin It's an outlawed practice that has seemingly crept out of the shadows once again So Elspeth who has a strong emotional attachment to her girls is bound to finding this threat and keeping the Canvases and Sisters safe The characterization here is superior to previous books Elspeth and Blackburn seen in previous books have an explosive chemistry And when I say explosive that's what I mean They rub each other the wrong way from the start and just can't stop fighting for a second Blackburn is determined to win Elspeth and eually determined to do it without giving her any of himself His courtship is uniue and fascinating to watch while it's shared pain that pushes them together it's something else they share that drives them apart Any discussion about what binds them cannot be done without series spoilers but it's painful it's ugly and it's indescribably emotionalI liked the visibility of other characters in the world of the Velvet Basement and the clear tie ins with The Bound Heart This is also probably the most passion filled of the books and I'm not just talking about the sex Elspeth is a passionate character passionate about those she protects and cares for passionate about her refusal to be a Painted Sister passionate about her pain passionate in her feelings Blackburn doesn't wear his heart on his sleeve but he sure has one and it's in a lot of danger from ElspethWhen reviewing an ARC copy grammar spelling and typos tend to get ignored since they can be cleaned up before final publication Unfortunately as with previous books in this series they persist in the published book The Painted Heart has run on sentences; suffers from inappropriate commas and apostophes; and is riddled with incorrect verb usage character name shifts and typos Even with two editors listed these issues are not addressed in this book The first thing I checked when I got the Kindle edition was to check the character name shift and it was still there I'm not sure if it's a case of the wrong file being uploaded or if these issues are not being caught In the end this edition gets 3 stars only because I loved the story as much as I did The editing is still in serious need of help This review is adapted from the ARC review is ©April 2017 by Moniue N and is crossposted to com
