More filters. Sort order. The characters are very well thought out. The story line kept me reading this novel from the moment I opened my ebook. Very steamy too. Jun 16, Amber Myers rated it did not like it. This book was missing those elements. It stopped being romantic almost immediately and that was disappointing. Was that too much? I, alas, am not that person.
Sep 03, Boudica rated it really liked it. Historical is not my usual genre, but I really enjoyed this book.
If you're looking for an emotional release, this is not the book for you. If you're seeking a never ending supply of page turning erotica then this is exactly what you're looking for.

Aug 15, Kranna rated it did not like it. I very much wanted to like this book I just didn't I was very confused with that aspect of dreaming a different time. I did not finish this because it got very confusing for me. Fascinating, Erotic and highly enjoyable. The Magic Man is invading a dream again. And so, the first quarter of the book is a sweet, innocent, almost chaste tale of young love, with Jean and Steven discovering their feelings, a beautiful story full of romance. Hand holding, stolen kisses, a lovely innocence as their feelings deepen into a stronger love.
We begin to see glimpses that Jean is a very lustful young lady and she hopes to have Stephen take her virginity, but circumstances keep them fro Fascinating, Erotic and highly enjoyable.
We begin to see glimpses that Jean is a very lustful young lady and she hopes to have Stephen take her virginity, but circumstances keep them from consummating their love. A family crisis forces Jean into employment. Her options sadly lacking in that time period, she gains employment at her Uncle's Inn as a barmaid.
So begins Jeans new life and her journey of self discovery. Her descent or rise, depending on your point of view, into a carnal lustful world of debauchery and decadence. This is told in such a lovely narrative, that you feel what Jean is feeling. Each new experience seems natural, an almost inevitable progression.
I actually read this at the request of a friend who highly recommended it. And the plot continues to pivot on elaborate, also intertwined deceptions, in which Lucky and Penny must appeal to influential and unappealing men so that they may dance. What follows is one of the most astonishing dances in the history of cinema, in which Astaire moves with 24 chorus dancers, who break up into trios before reuniting in a single vast line, allowing Astaire to partner with all of them simultaneously before moving on to a different set piece in which he out-dances a trio of shadows of himself.
In these shockingly obsessive and insular sequences, Astaire pushes his co-stars aside to plumb the outer reaches of his own talent, and his angular, demonic racial caricature has undeniable force. At the end of the song, they reunite for a pained spinning gesture that explodes the emotion of the set piece, visualizing a failed stab at reconciliation.
Astaire holding Rogers in his hands and arms suggests a grace for which many of us yearn—an ability to fully express a sense of belonging or of disenchantment with a lover. As actors, Astaire and Rogers are tasked with performing formulaic romantic melodramas; as dancers, they embody the deepest and most ineffable, beautiful, and disruptive stirrings of the soul. The image here is often pristine, particularly in the wide shots of the fabulous sets.
In these compositions, the blacks are rich and the whites really pop. Facial textures are occasionally soft and the details of the costumes are sometimes a bit vaguer than one would prefer, though neither of these issues are deal breakers.
The monaural soundtrack, however, is positively dynamic, rendering the Dorothy Fields and Jerome Kern songs all now standards of the American songbook with piercing clarity and nuance. Some of these interviews are mere snippets, but they offer a piece of the living history that Mueller discusses. The dancing, songwriting, screenwriting, and direction are all discussed, refuting the notion of filmmaking as the act of a single conjurer.
Mask offers an incisive and wide-reaching work of criticism in only a handful of minutes, contextualizing the exploitation that powered even our most beloved entertainments. A booklet featuring a characteristically lovely and erudite essay by critic Imogen Sara Smith rounds out the disc. This latest, lovingly executed experiment in genre minimalism is altogether more conventional, though not necessarily the poorer for it.
The inn is closing down, and two professionally aimless desk clerks-cum-amateur ghost hunters are overseeing its final weekend. With only three guests to care for — a whiny mother and son, and a former actress turned grumpy medium Kelly McGillis — somethings Claire Sara Paxton and Luke Pat Healy are swapping hour shifts and bump-in-the-night taping duties on a portable recorder.
Their specific target is the century-old spirit of a suicidal bride whose body allegedly molders beneath the hotel floorboards. Now she sobs and slams doors in fine haunted-house tradition, while eluding all attempts to capture her carryings-on. That attention adds a richness to his characters that horror movies rarely provide.
