Mercy Harris, a wealthy matriarch in failing health, guards a lifetime of confidences. Even as she welcomes friends and family into her home for Christmas 1923, she harbors a new secret.
As proprietor of the Black Hen, a guesthouse catering to adults with unconventional sexual appetites, she delivers the luxury and discretion essential to her clients’ enjoyment. Regular visitors think they know Mercy. They don’t.
This year, as her company decorates the house for the holiday, they whisper about the small changes in her. Enticed by their erotic comforts, they shed their worry about the formidable woman who seems destined to live forever.
When her guests are relaxed and mellow on Christmas Day, Mercy surprises them with a gift that will rock their world for years to come.
Disclaimer: Unbowed is a stand-alone prequel in the Without Mercy series. It contains sexual and erotic scenes, including spicy power exchanges. If that content is likely to offend you, please don't read this book.
This story had it all for me. The author has done a marvelous job of bringing the reader into life in the 1920s that goes far beyond the stereotypes often provided in books and movies.
Wow, what a unique start to a new series. Mercy is the family matriarch who knows she is dying. She is convinced this is her last Christmas. This story does a great job introducing us to the characters in the series. This is a very different book for this author. Different in a good way. I can't wait for the next book.
