Help A Bitch Out

HaBO: Receptionist by Day, Sex Worker by Night

This HaBO comes from Aleksandra, who is looking for this romance:

I’ve been looking for this novel for years. Sometimes I even think I imagined it…

I read it in the 90s. If I remember correctly the cover was white with some green or dark blue. I think it was written by a British author (I borrowed it from the British Council Library and they used to lend only books by British authors) and I have an impression the story was settled in London. The main character is an exclusive call girl. In the past she was kind of saved from the street and trained by an aging call-girl, who then passed our heroine her own customers. On a daily basis the main character is inconspicuous, dresses rather unattractively, and works as a dentist/doctor receptionist as a kind of a cover.

There must have been some crime, because there was a policeman involved, who discovered her double personality. He was also attracted to her and tried to build some relationship with her. I think at the end they get together. Any ideas?

Can we find this older title?

    How much sex was there? If it was an erotic romance, I’m wondering if it was from the Black Lace imprint – erotica for women, by women. I remember that most of the authors were British.

    Thanks cleo! It definitely wasn’t erotica. I can’t even remember, whether there was any explicit sex scene or not.

    Sounds like the plot to that Kathleen Turner movie “Crimes of Passion”.

    I read something similar to the description above, although I’m pretty sure it’s a lot newer than Aleksandra specified. It had a terrible title–something like Trash, or Slut, and the author’s name was only a single name or a combo name made from two first names. I’m a judgmental old bitch at times, so given the title and the author’s name, I started it with great anticipation of hating it, and instead I really liked it. But I CANNOT find the title! The opening scene (I think) was in a high-power (and perhaps high-rise) city office, and the “call girl” had been sent to try to compromise the guy who ends up being the hero of the story. There is an aging “mentor” who is at heart very kind and caring. I’d love to track this down again, so if it’s perhaps the missing book for this HABO, I hope someone remembers it!
