The Concubine's Gift by K. Ford K.: Review

Bernice Babbitt, a sexually inhibited, thirty-nine-year-old woman, leads a peaceful life in the tiny resort town of Valentine, Nevada. Living only two miles from the famed bordello, The Honey Bunny Ranch, she can’t imagine what goes on behind its closed doors.
Things begin to change when Bernice buys an old, black-lacquer makeup case in an antique shop. The case once belonged to Blissful Night, the most famous and powerful concubine in Hong Kong. According to legend, Blissful Night could give a man more pleasure in one night than he would have experienced in an entire lifetime.
Inside the makeup case, Bernice discovers a forgotten jar of face powder, the secret to Blissful Night’s success. Thinking the face powder is an herbal concoction that will beautify her skin, Bernice begins to use it, only to find that the powder causes her to see visions of other people’s sex lives.
Bernice is horrified to discover that the only way she can rid herself of the visions is to blurt out sexual advice. Soon the entire town is in an uproar. But it isn’t until Bernice learns more about Blissful Night’s past that she knows what she must do. (from Goodreads)

**This book is for those 18 years & older**

When I was contacted by the author about reading this book, I'll admit the synopsis piqued my interest. Unfortunately, I was so busy it took me a month before I was able to finally start reading it. Once started, I flew right threw it  in about a day and a half. 

This is one of those fun, fast reads that you bring to the beach. It's both funny and provocative, not quite a romance but most definitely an adult read. It's a story about finding and being true to yourself, the role that family plays in our lives and the power of true friendship. I thoroughly enjoyed it! 
My Rating:


  1. Glad you enjoyed it Mel; I'll have to add this one to my oh so very long TBR list!


We love to hear from you!
