Item description for Histress by Crystal Lacey Winslow...
Anthony Cross is a highly successful, well educated, young, up and coming plastic surgeon. He has a string of sexy, young, single woman at his fingertips. So why is he sweating Mrs. Gracie Lane? She was a challenge: a married woman who was still in love with her husband. The married, mysterious temptress eventually becomes his stress with her incessant lies, secret past and constant mood swings. Why can't he let her go? That question will haunt Anthony as his boys try to talk sense into him: Married women are good for one thing...booty calls! Anthony's heart --or is it his ego? -- won't let her go. When he and Gracie's worlds collide, Anthony, the self-proclaimed bachelor, realizes that Gracie's in control and he's become her HISTRESS!

(RAW Rating 3.5) Secrets will surface Jul 14, 2008
HISTRESS by Crystal Lacey Winslow is an intricate story of abuse, deception and love. Gracie is mistreated as a child and never understands why. As a result, she flees her home as quickly as she can. She marries Ed, a man several years younger than she is, and Ed, being a kind husband, gives Gracie what she wants as a present: a tummy tuck. The moment Gracie steps into Dr. Anthony Cross's office, she knows she wants this man and the good doctor becomes her `histress' - the male version of a `mistress.' As the affair continues, Ed becomes suspicious as does Dr. Cross's girlfriend and the drama begins. Can Gracie carry this off without her many, dark secrets surfacing? There are those who want her exposed and are working overtime to do it. Will she survive it all?
Crystal Lacey Winslow has penned a novel of deception that grows rather than diminishes over the years. There are many plots, twists and turns. Sometimes it was a bit hard keeping all the various characters and their actions straight. It was definitely an interesting book and most of the characters were well developed. A few of the minor ones were rather vague, thus hard to keep straight.

When A Woman Runs It! 3.5 Stars Apr 10, 2008
Dr. Anthony Cross is the man in New York City. He is the premiere plastic surgeon and as such is used to women falling at his feet. He is thirty-three years old and has no questions at all about what he brings to the table. There is nothing he loves more than a bevy of beauties at his beck and call and he is often not nice about it. However, that does not stop the women from flocking to him. After all, he is tall, dark, handsome, rich and well-endowed. He may be about to meet his match though, finally.
Gracie Lane is about to enter her forties. She is a millionaire due to her late husband's death. She has been remarried for ten years and is seemingly happy. Gracie's past is filled with lies and secrets and she is always a heartbeat away from the truth spilling out. The one thing Gracie wants is to have a tummy tuck but though rich she will not purchase it for herself. She is pleased and surprised when her husband provides her the surgery as an anniversary present. Of course, the doctor is none other than the famous, Dr. Cross.
Upon meeting, Anthony and Gracie get off on the wrong foot. However, she decides to use him as her plastic surgeon. For some reason, Anthony is immediately smitten with Mrs. Lane and is unable to get her out of his mind. A chance encounter, after work hours, leads to a hot and heavy sexual relationship and from that point the games truly begin. It was fun reading about a man who is so full of himself getting played by a moody, married femme fatale. I recommend Histress to those who enjoy a fast-paced, sex-filled, sometimes comic novel.

Don't buy, borrow from a friend. Mar 22, 2008
I didn't like this book at all. I bought it based on the reviews and I was like "WTF?" There was just too much going on all at once. This "playa" turned out to be a whipped fool and the object of his affections was just as crazy. The beginning was so bad that I quit reading it, and it down for a few days. The ending was good though. That is the reason I gave it got a star. The characters could have been more played out instead of jumping from one thing to another. I have read previous CLW books and I think that maybe the author got tired when it came to writing this one. The other books are great.
