B+ The X Ingredient by Roslyn Sinclair October 1, 2019 · Ylva Publishing Erotica/Erotic RomanceLGBTQIARomance This book is not going to be for everyone because it’s an erotic romance with a boss/employee scenario, although if that pairing is your jam, you will almost certainly love it.

Celine quickly becomes drawn to a young woman named Odette, who hires Celine to make a dress for a Mardi Gras masquerade and invites her to the Court of Lions, which Odette refers to as a gambling hell for mentalists. Count me in. In reality, the Court of Lions is a collection of inhuman beings under the purview of Le Comte de Saint Germain. At its center is the Count’s only heir, his nephew Bastien. When Celine and Bastien meet there is an undeniable chemistry between the two, even as Celine realizes that Bastien is dangerous.
