STORY: Lucien Marvaine never thought he was good enough for Katherine. As the younger son of an earl, he didn’t have a title or prospects. Then fate steps in and gives him a second chance, and this new Earl of Roxbury is determined to make the beautiful Kate his own . . . one touch . . . one kiss at a time.
Katherine never thought of herself as a temptress, certainly not with Lucien. Why, she’s known him almost all her life! Yet as she waltzes in Lucien’s arms at the Kingsborough Ball, she can’t help but be drawn to him. Has he always been this hard and masculine? And where did those dimples come from? Kate is not looking for a husband . . . but how can she not surrender to Lucien’s charms when love is at stake?
REVIEW: I am one of those readers that likes to give authors that at first read disappoint, a second or even a third chance. As of right now, it looks like I’ll be giving this author closer to four or even five chances because once more I had a hard time liking this story and especially the heroine. Talk about cutting your nose to spite your face!
Everything from plot to characterization defied logic and if I can’t connect to something or someone in a story, the author will loose me. And that’s what happened here.
I am sorry to say that I just can’t recommend this story, however, like I said, I will not give up on this author and will probably give her a couple of more chances.
