Blog tour, giveaway & 4* review - The Gilded Chain by Lauren Smith

Cowgirl Callie Taylor is swept away by the mysterious art collector, billionaire bad boy Wes Thorne when he takes her to Paris to seduce her and offer her the world and her dreams.

Roam the streets of Paris, the City of Love, with Callie and Wes and fall in love as Lauren Smith takes them on an erotic adventure in THE GILDED CHAIN.


Explore a hidden world of erotic fantasies, where the greatest pleasures are stolen and the fiercest passions are untamed. . .
For years, Callie Taylor has been obsessed with two things: a man she can never have and escaping to Paris where she can follow her artistic passions. But everything changes when Callie meets Wes Thorne, a wealthy, mysterious art collector and famous dominant. Despite all the nights she’s spent dreaming of another man, it is Wes’s predatory gaze that suddenly consumes her every thought and sets her body on fire. One touch from him promises unforgettable passion, but Callie knows that passion often comes with a price…

From the moment he sets eyes on Callie, Wes is intrigued by her artistic talent and her delightful innocence of all things erotic. A stolen kiss leaves him aching and desperate to claim her in a way he’s never wanted any woman. But first he must convince her to surrender her control. And what better place to seduce an artistic soul like Callie’s than Paris?

This is the second book I've read by this author, and I'm quickly becoming a fan. Lauren Smith is very good at including all the little details that come together to bring the characters, setting and story alive. You really get to know her characters and feel involved in their lives. Although this book is third in the series it can be read as a standalone, as the couple featured here are only secondary characters in the previous books.

The hero, Wes is so dreamy and a really interesting character. There were a lot of layers to his personality, he was a surprisingly complex guy. To start with I wasn't convinced that Callie was a good match for him, but they proved me wrong as they worked really well together.  Their chemistry was hot and the sex scenes were well written.

I really liked that much of this book was set in Paris, it gave it a different feel to the previous books. The author really did this wonderful city justice, I felt like I'd been transported to Paris. The Gilded Chain is a great book with an intriguing storyline so it gets four out of five stars.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.
