Book Giveaway: Pleasure and Purpose by Megan Hart

Introducing the women of the Order of Solace-three new novellas from the national bestselling master of erotic romance.

The handmaidens of the Order of Solace are each named for the exquisite service that best reflects their true calling. Their greatest delight is giving pleasure-devoted as they are to fulfilling the desires of the mind, the needs of the soul, and the cravings of the body.

Meet Stillness, called upon to soothe the conscience of a man in need of redemption after a shocking act from his sexual past. Then there's Honesty, whose vow of Solace is to a prince looking for a submissive handmaiden. Instead, he gets the unexpected. And finally, Determination, a handmaiden confronted with a client lost in a haze of random sex and drugs. She has just the plan to literally whip her man into shape.

First line:
' "Gentlemen, what will ye offer for this rare treasure of a lady?" '

I think it's a very good first line, teehee.

Oooh I want to read this book so bad!

The first line of the book I am just starting is this:

"God Please. Not now"

from Servant: The Kindred by L.L. Foster. The second and third lines are shall we say very intriguing so can't wait to get started on it.

Thanks for another great giveaway!
