About the Book:

London, April 1825
Lord Jakob Radclyffe left his past behind in the Far East. Or so he thinks until a ruthless thief surfaces in London, threatening to ruin his daughter’s reputation. With the clock ticking, Jake needs the scandalous Lady Olivia Montfort’s connections in the art world to protect his daughter’s future.
Olivia, too, has a past she’d like to escape. By purchasing her very own Mayfair townhouse, she’ll be able to start a new life independent from all men. There’s one problem: she needs a powerful man’s name to do so. The Viscount St. Alban is the perfect name.
A bargain is struck.
What Olivia doesn’t anticipate is the temptation of the viscount. The undeniable spark of awareness that races between them undermines her vow to leave love behind. Soon, she has no choice but to rid her system of Jake by surrendering to her craving for a single scorching encounter.
But is once enough? Sometimes once only stokes the flame of desire higher and hotter. And sometimes once is all the heart needs to risk all and follow a mad passion wherever it may lead.

My Thoughts:

This book had some exciting moments and some that were just plain dull. 
However the sexual tension between our hero and heroine is not to be missed. It makes for a very sensual read.Jake thinks since Olivia is a scandalous divorcee having an affair with her will be just the thing to rid himself of his need for her. She is too scandalous to fill his need for a stepmother for his daughter. Is she also somehow connected to the art thief he is now seeking or is it merely coincidence?Olivia on the other hand has other ideas. She will not be taken for granted once again. After living several years certain that her husband is dead she suddenly found herself not a widow after all but an abandoned wife instead. With the help of her father-in-law she obtained an absolution of the marriage. Now she is not looking for another husband but it appears one may have fallen into her lap.This was a very good read. I own the first book but have not yet read it so I can’t comment on if this is the better or lesser of the two.

This book gets 4.5 of 5.0 stars from me for storyline and characterization and a high sensual rating of 4 of 5 flames. As much as both hero and heroine try to keep their distance the intimacy is very, very hot.

I received a complimentary ARC of this book from the publisher to read both through Hidden Gems and a gifted file for an upcoming blog tour. I read this book voluntarily and all thoughts are my own.
