Any self-respecting hedonist will love this book! The author manages to seamlessly connect the dots in this exciting read that’s set in both contemporary Los Angeles and the late 18th-century Mediterranean region.
Beverly is perfectly content with her career as an exotic dancer who teaches women pole dancing, etc., on the side. Her ex-husband, Jay, could not handle her dancing and they eventually divorced. One of her students happens to practice regression therapy and Beverly is taken back to the 18th century and her life as a Middle Eastern princess, Camille.
After two years apart, Jay and Beverly reconnect and decide to have an affair, no strings attached, but they are meant to be together; it’s just a matter of time. As Beverly reveals more of her past, she wonders whether Jay was her husband/prince. The parallels are striking and Jay starts to wonder the same thing. But he also experiences some jealousy of the prince, who meant so much to her. Camille, on the other hand, is unhappy in her arranged marriage and attempts to entice her husband away from his harem.
READER TO READER REVIEWS:

Exotic dancer Beverly Gilbert, a.k.a. “Malibu” is perfectly happy with her occupation, dancing at the Dusky Doll topless club. It’s where she first met her husband, Jay Novak, a male model and actor who moonlights as a fusion cook. Following a hasty wedding their torrid romance cooled when Jay asked Beverly to give up dancing, which turned into a deal-breaker for their marriage. They split within a year, though neither of them fell out of love.
In addition to her dancing, Beverly has an interest in past life regression. She learns in a series of therapy sessions that in the late Eighteenth Century she was Camille Renard, chosen as a child to be the future bride of Prince David Abir Rou Veli. On their wedding night Camille asks David to disband his harem, a request he flatly refuses, which turns into a deal-breaker for their marriage.
Back at the Dusky Doll, Jay shows up one night to see Beverly dance and their long-denied feelings reignite. In Neylan, Camille gets a second chance when she devises a seductive plan to charm her way back into the prince’s bed.
Whitefeather’s erotic tale alternates between the love stories of Jay and Beverly in 21st Century California, and David and Camille in 18th Century Neylan Empire. Both stories are equal in intensity and each switch heightens the reader’s anticipation as both couples find delightfully creative ways to settle their differences. Hot. Sweet. Yummy.

For those that love second chance at love romances, you will enjoy Private Dancer. Sheri Whitefeather starts readers off with Jay paying a surprise visit to the nightclub where his ex wife works as a stripper. Frustrated by her job and yet drawn to her even after their divorce, he pays for a lap dance. Beverly can’t believe it when she spots her ex in the crowd and dancing for him brings back the memories of how they met and fell in love.
At times I was on Jay's side understanding his jealousy and desire to have his wife just to himself and then I was on Beverly's side because she was a stripper when he met her. This was interesting as readers have to wait to see if these two old lovers will be able to conquer the demons of their past and make it work a second time. This was a full length book but the story flowed quickly and I was finished before I knew it. Whitefeather is an author I will check out again.
