The Pearl is the third book in Tiffany Reisz's Godwick's series, and this one centers around Arthur Godwick, heir to the Godwick title, and first born son to The Red's Mona and Spencer, and brother to The Rose's Lia Godwick. When Arthur finds out his younger brother is in debt to the famous Pearl hotel, Arthur offers to help his brother out of it. He had no idea when he made the offer to the beautiful Regan Ferry, that she would want 10 nights with him to work off the debt. Neither of them were expecting what those nights would lead to ...
My first impression of The Pearl, was surprise. The Red is incredibly erotic, with very little, to no, romance. The Rose is also very erotic, but with romance as well, as Lia and August end up falling in love. The Pearl is tame in regards to Tiffany Reisz's work. There is an element of romance, which I appreciated, and a plot that I found interesting. Were there things in this book that bordered on ridiculous? Sure! But that's the magic of these books. There is an element of supernatural about them, that makes them stand out. I think I could have done without the epilogue, as it had very little to do with Arthur and Regan, but all in all, it ties in with the series, and left me wondering ... will there be more? It felt like an ending to me, but who knows?
I think Arthur is my favorite of the Godwick's. He is humble, honest, kind, and a bit of a romantic. Throw in the hot sex, and he is kind of perfect. Regan took a while to warm up to, but once I did, and learned more about her, I also really liked her. Without giving anything away, I loved how accepting both character's were of each other. By the end, I was happy for these two characters.
The Pearl is a nice tie in with the other Godwick books. Tame compared to the last two, but definitely not any less exciting. If you enjoyed the last two books in this series, you will enjoy Arthur's story.
