For The Earl’s Pleasure
Back cover blurb
Beneath every scornful smile . . .
They were once cherished childhood companions, until a scandalous secret tore them apart. Now Valerian Rainewood and Abigail Smart are the fiercest of enemies. To Abigail, Rainewood is a notorious rake, hell-bent on mischief and not fit for polite society. So what if it seems he can seduce her with nothing but his eyes? She will not succumb. But when the earl is viciously attacked, Abigail’s distress tells her that something still binds her to the wild Rainewood.
Lies an unquenchable desire . . .
Though the ton believes there is nothing between them, Rainewood knows the truth. Abigail tempts him the way no other woman has. Wanton lust overwhelms him whenever she is near. But keeping her too close may put her precious life in danger. He must destroy his enemies-so that with every touch he may prove to Abigail that though their past was filled with trouble, their future will be nothing but pleasure.
Valerian Rainewood passed through two men without breaking stride.
His eyes glittered and Abigail’s hand rose without direct consent to her lips.
“You can see me.” That familiar silky, deep, masculine voice said.
Her eyes tightened. No one there. A figment of her imagination. She would not look.
A tall, darkly dressed man moved into her vision. Stood before her, dark eyes piercing her.
“You can see me,” he repeated forcefully.
Her lips parted. A tingle brushed down her arm, a bone-deep shiver followed in its wake.
Rainewood circled her. “Talk to me,” the commanding, sensual voice said against her ear. “I know the look in a woman’s eye when she has noticed me, I know the look in your eye when you’ve seen me.”
She shivered again…
First review out! 4 1/2 Stars, Top Pick at Romantic Times!
Ok, this section obviously hasn’t been updated in a while, lol. Will gather and add the others sometime in the near future (hopefully that does not mean by 2015). I have to go back and find the links (which were lost in deadline dementia way back when). But there is a balanced love/hate selection of reviews over at Amazon that might help you decide on which end of the spectrum you might fall.
If you don’t like paranormal elements in your historicals, this one is not for you.
