I really haven't read too many historical romances yet, so I can't tell how The Club compares to others in the genre. There was an interesting, dangerous mystery going on throughout the whole book. It really dragged on for a while, but then toward the end, this book became more of a page turner. I enjoyed the evolution of Jane's character - from timid and fearful to confident and brave at the end. I also enjoyed watching her previous perceptions of Christian completely turn around as well. The reader gets to make these discoveries about him along with Jane. ( )

When I read the word "erotic" on the back cover of this book I thought "uh-oh." I'm not a prude, mind you, I'm just not into the erotic genre. This was my first time reading something by Sharon Page, and I really liked this book. The Club is an erotic place where many of London's high soceity go to get naughty. It also has a dark secret.Jane St. Giles, Lady Sherringham, goes to the club in an effort to find her friend Del, a patron of the club, who had gone missing. Jane has pretended to come to the club to be entertained. She waits in her bedchamber for the man she has paid for, freaking out, because she has no intention of having sex with anyone. She just wants information.Enter Christian Sutcliffe, Lord Wickham. The extremely handsome Lord Wickham happens to be Del's brother and has come to The Club for the same reasons as Jane. Jane and Christian's relationship develops over several encounters of intrigue and lust. Wickham is rather creative in his sexual endeavors, and I have to say I was quite engrossed in many of the scenes. A notorious rake, Wickham isn't known as "Lord Wicked" for nothing. The Club has danger, intrigue and lust brilliantly fused into one good read. ( )

Intriguing characters that hooked me. The plot was probably more complex than necessary but the characters overcame that. I'll definitely take a look at the author's next book. ( )
