Scarlet Angel is beautiful, intelligent, well educated and she’s a whore. Not your everyday street corner prostitute, she’s a highly sought after companion whose time can be purchased only after being thoroughly checked out by the people Scarlet works for and her price is high. It’s not a career choice for everyone but Scarlet loves her job. She gets to meet exciting people, travel to interesting places, live a lifestyle she enjoys, and lets not forget she gets paid for having lots of sex.
Scarlet’s well-organized life is about to undergo a major crisis. Even though the men she sees are always carefully screened there’s no guarantee that they’ll behave in an acceptable fashion. In all the time Scarlet’s been working as a professional whore she’s only had one bad experience - until now. She takes great pride in knowing exactly how to please her clients and most of them appreciate her attention to detail but when drugs become involved things go very wrong. Fortunately, she escapes Arnauld’s abusive attention with nothing more than some bruises and sore ribs.
Before she’d left to meet Arnaud, Scarlet had received an important-looking envelope but hadn’t had time to open it. After she arrives back at her condo, she sends an email to her ‘handler’ Rose to let her know how her meeting had gone. Then she remembers about the envelope and opens it only to find a letter from her attorney informing her that her Aunt Dodo has passed away.
After the Arnaud incident, Scarlet was going to take a little time off to recover from her injuries. Now her plans are altered and she’ll be taking a trip to the small town where her aunt lived for the funeral and to put her affairs in order. Scarlet opts to leave her ‘life’ behind and she enters Bothwell Valley as Angel Jones, her real identity. The last thing she expects is to have two men vying for her attention and the effect they’ll have on her and her outlook on life. Will being a professional whore still be Scarlet Angel’s choice of career when all is said and done?
Sahara Kelly really took a huge risk when she wrote PERFECT WHORE. This isn’t anything like her normal storylines but I have to tell you I was fascinated by this tale from beginning to end. I developed a lot of respect for Scarlet Angel, not because of her job, but because of the fact that she’s honest about who she is and what she enjoys. I loved the various aspects of her life and the differences between her clients. There’s no doubt that her career as a whore isn’t without risks but she accepts those risks to her body and protects her heart. There’s something admirable about her, but you’ll have to pick up a copy of PERFECT WHORE to meet Scarlet Angel and learn about her. Beautifully written Ms. Kelly! I’m extremely impressed!
PERFECT WHORE is an Ellora’s Cave Exotika book and this line specifies that there isn’t necessarily a happily-ever-after to the storylines but every story I’ve read that’s a part of this line has been nothing short of amazing.
