RELEASE DAY BLITZ: Veronica COURTESAN by Siobhan Daiko

Title: Veronica COURTESAN
Author: Siobhan Daiko
Genre : Historic / Erotica 

I watch him watching us, imagining how he would take me.

I send him the message with my eyes.
This is who I am. 
I am Veronica Franco. 
I court the cultural elite for fame and fortune, giving my body to many. 
And I’m good. So very good. After all, I was taught by my mother, and mother always knows best. 
How else to please the future King of France than with the imaginative use of Murano glass? How else to fulfil the desires of all yet keep my sense of self-worth?
But when disaster strikes and my life begins to unravel, I’ll have to ask myself one question:
Is it too late to give my heart to just one man?
Set in Venice 16th Century.
Advisory: sensuously erotic. 18+

I wanted to read Veronica COURTESAN as soon as I saw one of the teasers for it! It was super hot and I couldn't wait to read it! It turned out to be a lot different than what I expected or have gotten used to with historical romances, but it was a very good surprise. I have to say that this book is definitely one of the most unique and one of the hottest historical romances that I have ever read and I absolutely loved it!! 

Veronica Franco is a very strong, independent, intelligent woman. She's creative, gifted, witty, stubborn, proud, and very passionate. She's confident, isn't afraid to speak her mind, and she definitely will not let anyone, especially not a man, walk all over her. Yes, Veronica is a courtesan, but she's so much more than that, she was a wonderful heroine and I truly loved her! 

Veronica COURTESAN is full of seduction, power, strength, lessons, and love. It was a new reading experience for me because I usually only read about one hero and one heroine, but this book challenged that norm for me and won. It was obvious how much Veronica loved her men and visa versa. There was truly love and affection there and while it would've have seemed crazy to me before I read this book, it actually worked out. It is a beautiful, amazing book, I really enjoyed reading it and I can't wait to read the next book in the series!!

Veronica COURTESAN is a standalone, it's only told from Veronica's POV, and it might not be the most orthodox of HEAs, it is one nevertheless and a beautiful one at that.
