Review: The Festival of Flowers by Denise Golinowski

The Festival of the Flowers: The Courtesan and the Scholar by Denise Golinowski

Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
Genre: Fantasy Romance

Heat Rating: 1



Temptation is her profession, seduction in her blood, but when a courtesan falls in love with an impoverished scholar, can she risk her heart and his life?

For a courtesan with siren’s blood, drawing men to her bed is as natural as breathing, but Lisara Hammett refuses to feel anything beyond the physical. A generations-old curse dooms the women of her bloodline to lose any man they love.

Reyst Andulon does not believe in superstition nor magical creatures—but he does believe he is not good enough for Lady Lisara. Lisara begs to differ, but must risk the pain of her family curse or lose Reyst forever.

Rachel's Review

When a courtesan craves the peace of the ocean and the song of the waves to ease her siren’s blood, she must prepare to end her life of affairs. But, when a man of noble birth takes the position of a scholar and sets his virtuous charms on Lisara, she’s stuck with fighting her personal wants with what her body needs.

Golinowski creates a whimsical world of magic and sweetness in a time and place rifled with debauchery. This is a beautiful story of old world charm, painted with vivid colors to bring the enchantment alive. I sincerely enjoyed her characters and their lives. I wish that the hero and heroine would have been thrown together more, their chemistry was brilliant. Can’t wait to see what is in store on her next book.
