Determined to stop her wayward brother from squandering their dwindling fortune, Lady Eliza Brentford decides to follow him to his favorite den of depravity. There, among the candlelight and raucous revelry, she encounters her brother’s role model in debauchery, the notorious Marquess of Haddan, Gryffin Dwight. Staring into his smoldering green eyes, Eliza can’t help but find the rakehell nobleman seductively charming-and sinfully attractive.
In a Lover’s Paradise . . .
When Gryffin appears on Eliza’s estate as a guest of her brother, a stolen kiss among the garden’s blooms leads to a night of unbridled passion. Suddenly the lovely widow feels herself opening up, like the petals of a rose. Could this master of seduction possibly feel true emotion for Eliza? Or is he leading her down the garden path to an Eden of delights no woman can resist-and a fall no woman can escape?
REVIEW: This author manages to entertain me regardless of the name she writes under, Andrea Pickens or Cara Elliott . Her characters are fun, entertaining and can always manage to get themselves into all sorts of mischief. I love watching them squirm while figuring out how to extract themselves out of the troubles they mostly create themselves.
I read this series awhile ago, but apparently failed to review it, so this week I’ll be bringing you the lords of midnight.
I had so much fun reading this series about three men whose friendship and bond was formed on the battlefield fighting a war in Portugal. They’re known as Hellhounds. Connor Linsley is the Irish Wolfhound, while Gryffin Dwight’s a Deerhound, and Cameron Daggett’s a Bloodhound.
They are seen as dangerous predators in Society, mostly because of the Wolf’s Lair, a notorious gaming hell and brothel which is owned by Connor, and is a place where they spend most of their time!
These stories are for all of us that appreciate and love a bad boy and you can’t read this story and not fall in love with Gryff. You know right off the bat that he’s not all that he appears to be. He has his secrets and secret passions that have little to do with sex…well, almost. I’m not surprised that our heroine found him dangerous, charming and handsome. And with a strategically placed tattoo, this man was everything our heroine didn’t need but found herself intrigued and drawn to him. Watching these two and listening to them was too much fun!
I also liked Eliza who was on a mission to reform her brother and along the way she finds love in the most unlikely place and within an even more unlikely man.
The attraction they feel for each other is instantaneous and I while both are struggling with it, I liked the sparks and fire they both ignited within each other.
Oh, and there’s a bit of a mystery here too, so honestly, you can’t go wrong with this one. It has romance, intrigue and mystery. What’s not to love?!
