“The Concubine’s Gift is a sweet romantic story with a little bit of spice. I highly recommend this one for all contemporary romance lovers.” – Vine Voice
Bernice Babbitt, a sexually inhibited, thirty-nine-year-old woman, leads a peaceful life in the tiny resort town of Valentine, Nevada. Living only two miles from the famed bordello, The Honey Bunny Ranch, she can’t imagine what goes on inside its closed doors.
Things begin to change when Bernice buys an old, black-lacquer makeup case in an antique shop. The case once belonged to Blissful Night, the most famous and powerful concubine in Hong Kong. According to legend, Blissful Night could give a man more pleasure in one night than he would have experienced in an entire lifetime.
Inside the makeup case, Bernice discovers a forgotten jar of face powder with magical properties, the secret to Blissful Night’s success. Thinking the face powder is an herbal concoction that will beautify her skin, Bernice begins to use it, only to find that the powder causes her to see visions of other people’s sex lives.
Bernice is horrified to discover that the only way she can rid herself of the visions is to
blurt out sexual advice. Soon the entire town is in an uproar. But it isn’t until she learns more about Blissful Night’s past that she knows what she must do.
The Concubine’s Gift is a delightfully sexy novel in which Bernice is drawn into a seductive world she never knew existed. A provocative and entertaining Pandora’s Box of a tale!
This novel contains some erotic scenes.
Reviews for The Concubine’s Gift
Even though she is really inhibited Bernice blossoms into becoming more comfortable with her sexuality while helping others. She has a good core of friends that help her manage the visions and what comes with them. I also like the way the problem of the magical powder is resolved. Also there is a side story line that is tied up quite nicely in the end. I highly recommend this one for all contemporary romance lovers.”
The setting of this novel is delightful. Most of the story takes place in a quaint all-American town that is grappling with its own whore-house-filled history. The main characters are beautifully drawn, from the shy, sexually inhibited but much too curious Bernice Babbitt to wise old Mrs. Lin, sexpot Trina Trinket and a mysterious concubine named Blissful Night whose antique makeup case in the curious hands of Bernice Babbitt causes all the trouble.
My favorite part was the ending with its positive message about sex but I won’t reveal it here! My husband loved the erotic scenes that are sprinkled throughout. No matter what your favorite part may be, I wholeheartedly recommend this book.”
This is one of those fun, fast reads that you bring to the beach. It’s both funny and provocative, not quite a romance but most definitely an adult read. It’s a story about finding and being true to yourself, the role that family plays in our lives and the power of true friendship. I thoroughly enjoyed it!”
Berenice loves antiques that are connected with anything erotic. When Mrs. Lin sells her a make up case with a stuck drawer that used to belong to a famous concubine, her curiousity gets the better of her and she gets the drawer opened. What she finds inside turns her life upside down and the whole towns is in a uproar.”
