Reviewed by Patrice F.



American operatic singer Irene Adler engages in a passionate affair with English detective consultant Sherlock Holmes while performing in London.  Their careers force them to part ways.  Years later, they meet again when Holmes is hired by the King of Bohemia.   Holmes is uncertain of where he stands with Irene and must bide his time in order to regain her trust. 

Will this be the case to challenge him?  Or is he feeling something more?

Sherlock Holmes is renowned for his crime-solving skills yet proves to be a master of the amatory arts in Sherlock the Seducer.  I was impressed by the historical research for the setting, which covered places, people, attire, food/drink and dialogue.  The narrative switches back and forth between Holmes and Irene, and the tone for each character sounds and feels authentic.  The high voltage sex is flavored with sophistication and kink.  You’ll be pleased and wonderfully surprised by the fabulous plot twists and the more than satisfactory ending.  This superbly written variation on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s iconic character will tease the imagination of fans and non-fans alike.  I’m grateful for the time, energy and love that Suz deMello poured into this torridly tantalizing tale of sex and wits.  It was certainly time well spent.
