Passion knows no status or wealth…True, I am but a mere maidservant from a great house, snatched from a wretched existence of poverty and desperation to serve noblemen of wealth and privilege.
And yet… While I am indeed of lowly rank, I am also a young woman who allowed herself to sample life’s greatest pleasures in the hands of these titled men.
My tales overflow in this jo Passion knows no status or wealth…True, I am but a mere maidservant from a great house, snatched from a wretched existence of poverty and desperation to serve noblemen of wealth and privilege.
My tales overflow in this journal, penning my journey to becoming a woman of power of the most base, yet stimulating, breed. Unmarried and twenty, yet betrothed to no man, I would be considered a spinster by most, yet this is of my own ardent intention. With my unabashed lushness and wisdom regarding a man’s most vehement cravings, I am not lacking for suitors or proposals given in the heat of passion.
No, I have yet to meet the man who will challenge me, satisfy me in all ways, not only of the flesh. For where passion and desire are fleeting, my heart continues to beat.

May 27, Sarah Mac rated it it was ok Shelves: This had a decent start — which, alas, spiraled down the toilet with a magnificent flush.
Wilkie Collins, Ellen Wood, et al. Goofy suspension of disbelief doesn This had a decent start — which, alas, spiraled down the toilet with a magnificent flush. Goofy suspension of disbelief doesn’t apply to this bit of literary microhistory; they were part of a subgenre that grew from a very specific specific breed of “domestic horror” in the midth century. The Diary of Cozette isn’t a Victorian potboiler.
It’s not even pseudo-Victorian historical fic. So you really don’t recognize the great love of your life after, what, almost 3 years of living as servants in the same household You don’t know his voice. You don’t recognize his expressions.
You don’t feel an affinity for his gestures, personality, or general aura. How can he possibly be unrecognizable?! He lost an eyenot his f’ing face. Not only that, but the doncflla recognizes Cozette the very first day they re-meet, but says nothing. Instead he watches her frolic with other morons mcibtyre — wait for it — he thinks she’s found her happiness without him, therefore he won’t interfere because mcintyfe cares too much.
Just when I thought the bile couldn’t rise any futher, our esteemed pair rolls uma this clumsy affirmation of female independence in the last 2 pages: Would you have me, were these my terms? He would see to my care as much as I would his. But I can’t stand when heroes yammer this crap. I don’t need to be amannda.
View all 6 comments. Feb 12, Brittany B. Excellent, d NC content. Not erotic or kinky, but of a woman surviving her circumstances. In audiobook format, Ashford McNab’s narration is stunning. I seem to have more respect for the book than other reviewers. Ashford Mcnab might be the reason Oct 29, Christine rated it it was ok. Think Danielle Steel with more sex. And the only reason I gave it a two was because of the sex.
There were aanda couple diarioo phrases that Cozette said that I was particularly fond of. The next I have a man and I am all hot and bothered, I am going to look him in the eyes and say, “My peach is weeping.
If he bolts, aaaah, good riddance. Dec 22, Darcia Scates rated it liked it Shelves: This book was excellent. I felt like I could see the characters. Every page was exciting to read. Amanda McIntyre sparks your interest on every page. This was a beautifully done romance. At times it moves very slowly, but there is a reason. The author, through the words of the writer of the diary, is building the story.
She’s made your imagination fall back in time and feel what it was like in the ‘s. The main character, Cozette, learns what it is like to be a diarik. Not so much, “the hard way”, but more, it’s time to do this The men, well, of that time, they thought it was their due for pleasure. From the whorehouse to the manor you meet all types and they live up to your imagination. Jan 10, Lori rated it really liked it Shelves: This book reads like a diary. The entries are written by Cozette depicting her life as unfortunate or fortunate, depending on how you look at it events that take her from situation to situation.

The main theme is that she finds herself experimenting with various male partners. There is an overarching tale regarding a childhood love which add a plot to the tale. I love her voice, the accents, and the clarity of her re This book reads like a diary. I love her voice, the accents, and the clarity of her reading.
I’m never disappointed when listening to a book she has narrated. Nov 11, Alli rated it it was ok Shelves: Christy bought this book in Kadena on Monday, read it, and told me I should read it. An unbelievably quick read, and rather boring, and I feel dumber for having wasted an hour and a half reading the pages. Aug 18, Ceej rated it really liked it Shelves: I loved “the Master and the Muses” so much that when it made several references to this book I had to read it.
I was surprised by how far into the book it was before “the master” was mentioned but it was worth it and best of all it was worth the entire read. Dec 08, Tamara rated it did not like it Shelves: Not even great sex.
Feb 23, Zurysol Melendez rated it it was amazing. Aug 15, Liv rated it liked it Shelves: I adore the narrator Ashford MacNab, and that’s another reason I chose to plunge into this book.
I was ready to listen to something within the regency romance genre which was slightly gritty, realistic and nontraditional. Well, I definitely got that in this candid story with tragic elements of a woman fighting to survive in a world where women have very few advantages in society.
The development of the story line is different since the actions of the story are explored as a diary experience and through the heroine, Cozette’s perspective. The book does work toward an HEA, with mild injections of humor, much tragedy, tough life lessons, pain and ultimately survival. Cozette and Earnest have been diaruo, as late teenagers living in an orphanage, and have promised to find each other.
Earnest is mcintrye absolutely gallant hero who protects Cozette and sacrifices so much for her. But, diarip don’t really know the full extent of mckntyre sacrifice until the very end of the book, might I add after Cozette has experienced various trysts dirio other men.
On that note, one of my biggest worries throughout the book was all of this unprotected sex Cozette had with various suitors Even though this book is well written, secondary characters are interesting, and there is an HEA at the end, if you are a helpless romantic as I am, you can’t help but feel that there was a lot of wasted time ina unnecessary heart-ache that could have been avoided altogether but then, if that heart-ache was avoided this would be donceola very different book.
