The first book in the Soiled Dove Trilogy, The Ruby Queen is an excellent read. Mattie is abandoned by her boyfriend and ran out of town. She meets a prostitute named Roxie who takes her on as a protege.
Mattie soon learns all there is to being a prostitute and makes good money. She still thinks about her old life on the farm and her family, though.
I can't wait for the second book. I want to know if Mattie finds love.
