Unbound - Novel with Susan Donovan
Unbound was previously published as A Courtesan’s Guide to Getting Your Man.

Regency London’s most celebrated courtesan, The Blackbird, was a woman before her time—uninhibited, financially independent, and free to live by her own rules. Schooled in the sensual arts by the one man she loved the most, she recorded every wicked detail in her diaries…When Boston museum curator Piper Chase-Pierpont unearths The Blackbird’s steamy memoirs, she’s aroused and challenged by what she finds. Could the courtesan’s diaries be used as a modern girl’s guide to finding love and empowerment? One curious curator—and one very lucky man—are about to find out…

Under the covers…

In the front of Unbound, there is a quote from poet and activist Muriel Rukeyser.

“What would happen if one woman told the truth about her life? The world would split open.”

This novel takes place both in the past and the present. Don’t worry, we made sure you won’t get lost! 🙂

Writing Unbound was about splitting open the world for me. It isn’t meant to be simple erotica. It isn’t meant to be just a sexuality manifesto. It isn’t really a romance novel, even though it is one of the most romantic things I have ever written. My half of the novel is the diary of Ophelia (the Blackbird), a Regency courtesan, which was about telling a fundamental truth about the secret life of women. I am not a cardboard cutout. I am not a moveable piece in someone else’s game. I do not owe the world “nice” or “pretty” or “good.”

None of us do.

Ophelia is brave, uncompromising, snarky and full of joy. I love her. She is the woman I want to be when I grow up.
