About the Book:
Devastated by the disappearance of his sister, the Earl of Stranraer has gone to extraordinary lengths to find the notorious rake responsible, and enters his household incognito to wreak his vengeance. But his enemy has an unexpected protector—the innocent but headstrong Miss Cassandra Blythe.
Cassie is determined to learn the art of seduction. But she is blindsided by her body’s thrilling response to the wrong man—a mysterious servant who shows up at the most inauspicious moments to spoil her lessons in love with warnings of her imminent ruin. When she learns the handsome servant’s identity and the reason for his deception, she resolves to help Stranraer, but only if he abandons his vow to destroy his enemy.
The earl is sorely tempted to give the meddlesome beauty a lesson in seduction she’ll never forget. But she turns the tables, and he gets his own lesson in forgiveness…and love.
Add to Goodreads
Having only recently discovered this author I must say that I found this second book of the Wayward in Wessex series even better than book one.
The characters are very well thought out and the storyline captures and keeps your attention.
Cassie is certain that her future lies with her childhood friend. She has after all been in love with him for years, so she enlists the aid of a notorious rake to teach her the ins and outs of attracting the attention of the man she has loved since she was thirteen.
Edmund, Earl of Stranraer is undercover as a servant in the household of the man he is certain has everything to do with his sister’s disappearance.
His attempt to become Cassie’s protector turns into something quite different.
Will Cassie’s penchant for helping those who have befriended and attempted to help her turn into love or hate between herself and the earl?
This well written tale scores 4.75 of 5 stars from me for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 4 of 5 flames.
I look forward to additional titles in this series.
Although this is book #2 of this series, I believe it reads well as a standalone title.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this title from the publisher to read.
This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I have voluntarily reviewed.
Meet The Author:
Elizabeth first started writing fiction when she was eight, encouraged to do so by her Head Teacher father, who needed something to keep her quiet during school holidays. Her favorite topics were mermaids, ghosts, Norman knights and quests, and she illustrated and decorated her own books. She emerged from the world of her imagination to read History at the University of London, after which she spent many years working as an archaeologist and artifact illustrator. She then became a primary school teacher, after which she moved to museum education work, and display and collections management.
Elizabeth has been involved in Medieval, Tudor, and English Civil War re-enactment and has enjoyed sword-play and traditional archery, excelling in neither. She lived for seven years on a Knights Templar estate in Essex where she pursued her interest in historical textiles, cookery and medicine. She loves anything to do with the past, and still looks down holes in the ground to see if there’s anything archaeological in them. There generally isn’t.
She has written fifteen historical romances since moving to the West of England in 1997, the landscape and history of which have inspired the “Wayward in Wessex” series. Book #1 in the series, “Distracting the Duke”, has recently been published by Entangled Publishing.
