Oliver Parker is a narcissistic a*$hole—vain, self-absorbed, conceited, and egotistical.
And those are his better qualities.
He takes what he wants, and he wants me.
Only, I don’t want to be had. Not ever and not by him.
When fate puts the hotel heir in the perfect position to get his way, my only choice is to give him what he wants.
in communications and is currently working on her masters degree. She spends most of her free time reading, writing, and when the weather permits lounging out on a beach.
I’m the woman your husband thinks about while he’s on top of you at night…
At least, that’s how I tell the girls I hire to think.
Being an escort is no easy job, and being a madame is no easier…
I’m in the business of selling fantasies and dreams to million dollar clients, and if you think what I do is harmful to society, then think again. (If it wasn’t for me, there’d be a lot more unhappy and unproductive businessmen and a lot more drug addicted prostitutes in the world)
I guard privacy and secrets with my own life, and I’ve never slipped up or got caught, not once.
But there’s something about the man I just met, something that makes me uneasy, especially since he’s interested in me…
And he’s offering me a whole lot more than anyone ever has before…
I’m just not sure if this is a risk worth taking–if letting him into my life is the right thing, or if the red flags I’m currently seeing are real or another mirage…
BLP REVIEW ~ TRACY
Though I had heard Alice Tribue’s name, until I picked up Mirage I had never read one of her books ~ this is something I will be remedying in the near future.
The blurb for Mirage had me intrigued – there are many books available where the main character is an escort but I’d personally never come across one where the female lead was a Madam. I have to say that I loved this story from the start.
Victoria is a very successful woman who has a very tough exterior but there are many layers her – she hides them all very well – and when you discover why she took the road to becoming a Madam it gives you a better insight to her character.
Nathan, ah, dark, mysterious, determined, dirty talking man that he is…. He’s another one with secrets and layers – and even though I wondered what his angle was right from their first meeting, I kept hoping that he was as good as he appeared to be!
“They see only what I want them to see.”
They get together after a fair amount of persistence on Nathans part ~ Victoria has so many secrets that need to be kept hidden and she trusts so few people that it’s hard for her to let anyone in – will she be making a terrible mistake letting Nathan get close to her?
When the shroud is lifted and his truths are exposed, her world is knocked for six, but she’s not the only one affected!
I read this story in less than a day – and that was allowing for interruptions from real life, bugger that it can be… – I honestly didn’t want to put the book down!!
A hot, emotional and sexy story, with a likeable supporting cast, some mystery, a couple of twists and a good plot ~ for me, this was a really great read and I give it 4.5*

Being a Madame is no easy job…I guard privacy and secrets with my own life, and I’ve never slipped up or got caught, not once.I don’t do long-term relationships, there’s too much at stake, but there’s something about the man I just met, something that makes me uneasy. I try to push him away, but he won’t take no for an answer…
I’m just not sure if the red flags I’m currently seeing are real or just another Illusion…
