Review of Southern Heat by Catherine Rose

"Southern Heat" was exactly that HOT, like panties on fire... It is about a young 18yr old southern belle named Caroline Blake who's father is running for Governor and she has just discovered sex. So because she is basically a bored, spoiled, rich girl in the later 1800s she finds herself spying on the stable man and the kitchen help having "fun" in the barn and she wants to have some for herself... So she does, with just about anyone & just about any type. The author is a very descriptive writer and was able to capture the speech and feeling of the south after 1863 Emancipation Proclamation. You could picture the fields, carriages, dress, etc. For that reason I am giving the 3 stars. However, for me the lack of a real plot except for this young girl having sex constantly with anyone, except when she stumbled upon Randy Lowe (her father's rival's son). She sees him and is immediately drawn to him. The author lost me when **** Warning SPOILER ****  the young lady decides she wants to have sex with the stable man (keeping in mind that having sex with someone of "color" in the south at that time was considered very bad) her Father catches her and is livid, but decides that her punishment should also be his (and her's) pleasure and then they have sex too. By this point I found myself scrolling through the sex scenes. 
I think this story could have potential if more of a plot and character development had occurred because her descriptive writing and creativity was obvious. I was hoping more of a story would have happened with the Randy character and herself, except for the mention of them trying to get together for sex but in the end he makes another appearance and there is a surprise.
