I bought Dirty Thoughts last time it was on sale and subsequently posted a rant about it in the comments, so I might as well do it again. Additionally, a character who lacks a maternal instinct is portrayed as an irredeemably terrible person. I get plenty of those kind of insults in real life.

25 Best Romance Authors And Their Most Swoonworthy Reads | Reedsy Discovery
I liked Wild Child. The conflicts were realistic and the chemistry with the couple was good. I also enjoyed some of the secondary characters. That book pissed me off sooooo much. Do you have any recommendations? Thank you for the warning on Dirty Thoughts. Plot, writing, characters. A shout-out to the childfree readers. We did not have children by choice. CelineB: I totally forgot about Anyone but You! When I first got into romance, I went on a massive Crusie binge and that one was one of my favorites. Wow — a romance where newlyweds can be happy with each other! Who knew?
And it may be tangentially related, but a lot of erotica especially the Black Lace books ends with no kids. This is especially true in books where the heroine has multiple partners through the book, so parenthood could be an issue.
Unless the villain is the father, since he forced me to have sex. Or one of his minions during the week they all had their way with me.
Or while I was working as a prostitute and most clients did me up; so did a male employee — but no, he only did me up the ass. Or when King Edward screwed me when he visited the brothel. Or when the villain returned and had his wicked way with me again. I am gobsmacked that it only has a 3.

She is an amazing writer. Do yourself a favor and buy this book. Thanks L! I thought the author made it clear the hero always wanted children, he was just insecure about being emotionally prepared to have children. Once you have kids, you have a responsibility to be there, raise them, and financially support them. Maternal instinct be damned. Dirty Thoughts was an enjoyable read. It made me want to pick up another book by the author.
I disagree. You might not find this insulting to childfree people, but as a person who has chosen not to have children and who has had frequent insults, interrogations, and assumptions leveled at me as a result, I can tell you that I found it insulting. I had a few decades of stupid comments and judgements about first, not wanting kids, and then not having kids…and then they faded away. Though Rai is a relative newcomer, she already has five series under her belt and a reputation in the contemporary romance world for her innovative premises and vivid characters.
Just like so many of our couples, Livvy Kane and Nicholas Chandler have a deal. Except theirs is limited to just one night of guilty pleasure a year — guilty because of the animosity between their families.
