    The rating is only for Pam Rosenthal's House on Regent Street.I'm very much conflicted on what to rate it, which is why I'm going with 3 stars for now.I liked the storytelling. I liked the way the story was told, and progressed. But I did not like the main story arch. (view spoiler)[H has always been a-whoring, from quite young. He's 40 now, and looking to buy an old brothel. Someone else is also interested. And he makes a deal with the h. Meet with him for 5 days and they'll get to lease it on discount. The 5 days of sex were well done (sort of; for a patron and a whore, expensive, elegant whore, but a whore nonetheless)... and a few twists and whatnots. Turns out H used to visit this brothel, and when h decided to start in on the business (she was a char girl before that) 22 years ago, she wanted him to be her first. So instead of his regular girl, they led him up to her that night. And she's been in love with him ever since.(hide spoiler)]Can I blame Pretty Woman for glorifying prostitution? I remember liking Mary Balogh's Precious Jewel for the way the heroine enters into the profession with her eyes open. I don't mind that certain things are shown as being enjoyable by some people. But normalizing them, and removing all stigma from them is not something I can condone. Because then people get pressurized into extending their boundaries beyond what they are comfortable with. It's all very well to say that it's all consensual, but what muddies the water is after all how consent is obtained. ugh. never mind my rant.I guess my main problem was the inconsistency. It's so sexually open minded, and then we find out she fell in love with the first guy who took her virginity, when he was terrible at sex anyway? stupid. i was expecting better. The ending, instead of taking the story to a subliminal height, completely forfeited my good opinion.

    Here's the Amazon blurb: Susan Johnson - To the fashionable world, Viscount Priestley is known for his utter lack of morals, his wicked wit, and his unfailing talent at seducing, any woman who strikes his fancy-and then discarding her come morning. But the viscount has never met anyone like Nicky Wemyss. A woman who dresses as a man and immerses herself in science...Katherine O'Neal - It's 1933, and Kate Frost is the most creative flim-flam artist in all of East London - until she meets her match in the ruthless, rakishly handsome Rhys. But when these two thieves fall prey to their own deceptions, there's no telling who is fooling whom...and who is no longer pretending at all...Pam Rosenthal - The war with Napoleon over, seaman jack Merion has turned his attentions and his newfound prize money toward real estate, specifically a house east of Regent Street that was once a fashionable brothel. Like Jack, the mysterious Miss Myles has come up in the world the hard way, and she knows how to get what she wants. To gain the property they both want, she's willing to meet all of jack's terms - with pleasure...As is often the case with anthologies, I enjoyed some of these better than others. It was entertaining, but not life-changing. I had the hardest time getting into the last one, but ended up appreciating the ending.

    An odd little collection of short stories, nothing to make me want to read more by these authors.

    The first two stories were really boring. The only one I like was by Pam Rosenthal.

    Decently done, just nothing spectacular.
