Until she’s ready to commit herself solely to him.
Lumina, by Georgia Fox, is the story of a woman’s transformation from a naïve little girl to a wanton hussy.
Isabelle was ripped away from everything she knew and thrown into a world as different from hers as night from day. While living with her mother and siblings, Isabelle was exposed to a poor country girl’s life of hard work, no fortune, but the belief of true love. But when her wealthy aunt takes her on as her newest ‘project’, Isabelle is now fortunate to live the life of riches, education, and culture. There is only one price; no true love. Her aunt wants to auction off her virginity to the highest bidder. After all, only a man of money could be worth this girl, even if she didn’t love him. Devastated, Isabelle sets out to rebel against her aunt and make her own decisions, and her own mistakes.
I instantly liked Isabelle. She was smart and passionate. Behind the naïve girl, there was a strong, brave woman wanting to emerge, and as the story progressed, we saw the transformation in her, as well as the events that led her to it.
Salvatore was a flawed hero. I loved his imperfections and hypocrisy, and hated it at the same time. He was a hero who sinned and needed redemption. Although he redeemed himself in this readers eyes.
The story as a whole flowed wonderfully, with the words painting vivid pictures. There were no dragging moments, no dullness. I was pulled in from page one and not let go until the final page. It was a truly great read and I would highly recommend this to anyone who likes a good story along with hot sex.
