Madelynne Ellis, A Gentleman's Wager: Historical erotica from Black Lace, in which the heroine seeks fulfillment of more than one sort. Some male/male action. The story didn't propel me madly along; it was more something I read in small, yummy bites. I didn't necessarily like the characters, but I did like what she did with them; as I often do when reading erotica, I was studying what she wrote and how she wrote it. It was a nice change from all the erotic romance I've been reading.

There's a sequel, Phantasmagoria, which is on my TBR pile--it looks like it has a Gothic plot, so might have a much different feel. Am looking forward to seeing what she did with it.
