A Taste of Seduction

A Disgraced Lords Novel

by Bronwen Evans

Description:

The flames of desire fuel a torrid reunion as bestselling author Bronwen Evans returns with another captivating novel of the Disgraced Lords. See why Jen McLaughlin raves, “Bronwen’s historical romances always make the top of my reading list!”

Lady Evangeline Stuart chose to wed a tyrant with a title, or so society believes. That was five years ago—five long years that she could have spent with her first and only love: Lord Hadley Fullerton, the second son of the Duke of Claymore. Now Evangeline is a widow, and her soul cries out for Hadley. But when they see each other at last, everything has changed. The passion in his eyes has been corrupted by betrayal. Somehow Evangeline must regain Hadley’s trust—without revealing the secret that would spoil the seduction.

Hadley is determined not to be distracted by Evangeline. He and the other Libertine Scholars are in pursuit of an enemy who has been striking at them from the shadows, and Evangeline’s mere presence could be dangerous. But with one smile, one touch, one taste of Evangeline’s lips, Hadley’s resolve is overpowered by far more pleasant memories. As the two enter into a discreet affair, Hadley vows to give her his body, never his heart. That, she will have to earn.

My Thoughts:
This is book #5 of this series. It is the 3rd book in the series that I have read, Books# 3, 4 & 5 so I do not have a complete view on the series. I did however like the three books that I have read. I felt they were well written and had compelling characters and interesting storylines. This one may be the best one of the three that I have read. I fell in love with the characters and having been briefly introduced to them in one of the previous books I was excited to delve deeper into their personal story.
I would give it a 4.75 star rating.
I received a digital ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Forbidden Legacy

by Diana Cosby

Description:
“Diana Cosby is superbly talented.”—Cathy Maxwell, New York Times bestselling author

A betrothal neither wants . . . a passion neither can resist.

When the English murder Lady Katherine Calbraith’s family, she refuses their demands to wed an English noble to retain her home. Avalon Castle is her birthright, one she’s determined to keep.  After Katherine’s daring escape, she’s stunned when Scotland’s king agrees to allow her to return to Avalon, but under the protection of Sir Stephan MacQuistan . . . as the knight’s wife.  To reclaim her heritage, Katherine agrees. She accepts her married fate, certain that regardless of the caliber of the man, Stephan may earn her trust, but he’ll never win her love.

One of the Knights Templar, Stephan desires no bride, only vengeance for a family lost and a legacy stolen. A profound twist of fate tears apart the Brotherhood he loves, but offers him an opportunity to reclaim his legacy—Avalon Castle. Except to procure his childhood home along with a place to store Templar treasures, he must wed the unsuspecting daughter of the man who killed his family. To settle old scores, Stephan agrees, aware Katherine is merely a means to an end.

The passion that arises between them is as dangerous as it is unexpected. When mortal enemies find themselves locked in love’s embrace, Stephan and Katherine must reconsider their mission and everything they once thought to be true . . .   

My Thoughts:

This is another well thought out and well written book by Diana Cosby. I have been reading her books since I picked up a paperback copy of “His Captive” when it was newly released. It was a bargain from Zebra so I thought I’d give it a chance. I wasn’t disappointed then and have not been since.
This one had more sexual tension than actual sexual scenes, but that was nice for a change.
I gave this one a 3.75 star rating. It was a very good read but not a great one from one of my favorite authors.
