The most famous courtesan in London, Soraya, belongs to Justin, Duke of Kylemore.  Obsessed with having her for over five years when her affections became available, he snapped her up.  Now that their year long contract is over, Justin decides to do the unthinkable.  Justin, Duke of Kylemore decides to make his mistress, Soraya his duchess.

Verity Ashton may have had to barter her self to survive, but now she is financially independent.  Verity has no intention of keeping the persona of the notorious courtesan, Soraya.  Despite Justin's proposal, Verity vanishes from London to begin her new, respectable life in the countryside.  What Verity Ashton didn't count on was the Duke of Kylemore's obsession.  An obsession that will take him to her no matter where she runs. 

In Claiming the Courtesan, Anna Campbell broke some of my historical romance rules.  She gave me a sexually experienced heroine and a wildly forceful hero.  But despite the fact that I like my historical romance heroines innocent and my heroes alpha but not too alpha, I still loved Claiming the Courtesan

I couldn't put this book down.  I was enthralled.  I suffered and cheered for Verity and loved Justin with all his darkness.  You can't miss this new author.  Claiming the Courtesan is absolutely seductive!
