Grace Burrowes' "Darius" - #1 of the "Lost Lords" series

Darius: Lord of Pleasures - Grace Burrowes

Got halfway through and gave up on it. The main characters didn't really engage my interest. There are no real reasons given for why Darius has to work as a man-whore, even though he hates it, and Vivien didn't have much of a role in the book up to point where I stopped - her role is mostly passive (like Grace Burrowes' female main characters tend to be). If there had been more pages developing the characters as people and developing the plot, instead of describing the sex between Darius and Vivien in long-winded, loving, clinical detail, things might have been better, for me anyway.
