Series: Mirage #1
Author: Alice Tribue
Release Date: June 22, 2015
I'm the woman your husband thinks about while he's on top of you at night...
At least, that's how I tell the girls I hire to think.
Being an escort is no easy job, and being a madame is no easier...
I'm in the business of selling fantasies and dreams to million dollar clients, and if you think what I do is harmful to society, then think again. (If it wasn't for me, there'd be a lot more unhappy and unproductive businessmen and a lot more drug addicted prostitutes in the world)
I guard privacy and secrets with my own life, and I've never slipped up or got caught, not once.
But there's something about the man I just met, something that makes me uneasy, especially since he's interested in me...
And he's offering me a whole lot more than anyone ever has before...
I'm just not sure if this is a risk worth taking--if letting him into my life is the right thing, or if the red flags I'm currently seeing are real or another mirage...

Victoria is a madam, her business is definitely high class, she takes great care of the girls who work for her and great pride in the way she conducts business, she's also the owner of a successful spa that she uses as the covert for her escort business.
Victoria meets Nathan Lennox at a charity event, he's attractive, well spoken, and provides security for various business and high society affairs. They hit it off but Victoria is too afraid to open her heart and disclose her secrets to anyone.
She has her reservations about Nathan but he's persistent and goes after her with everything he has. Little by little, Victoria falls in love with Nathan and as their relationship progresses she realizes that she's going to need to tell him the secret she's been hiding for years if she wants to give their relationship a fair chance.
But Victoria is not the only one keeping secrets, Nathan has a few of his own up his sleeve. In a wild turn of event Victoria's world comes crashing down, but perhaps she's not the only one who's world is turned upside down.
I absolutely loved Victoria's character. She's a strong, independent woman. A woman who has built a wall around her heart, but who is incredibly vulnerable and loving. I also loved Nathan, I was a bit upset at him when the bomb went off, but after seeing his true self, I couldn't help but love the man.
Along with the two main characters, the secondary characters are well developed and a perfect fit to the story.
Alice has written an incredible tale full of twist and turns and strong emotions that will keep the reader glued to the book until the very last word.
I've read most of Alice's books, but Mirage is her best one yet. This is a well written book full of lust, love, loss, and love.
Highly recommended. Without a doubt, one of the best reads of the first part of this year.
