A Taste of Seduction - Bronwen Evans










Blurb:

Lady Evangeline Stuart chose to wed a tyrant with a title, or so society believes. That was five years ago—five long years she could have spent with her first and only love: Lord Hadley Fullerton, the second son of the Duke of Claymore. Now Evangeline is a widow, and her soul cries out for Hadley. But when they see each other at last, everything has changed. The passion in his eyes has been corrupted by betrayal. Somehow Evangeline must regain Hadley’s trust—without revealing the secret that would spoil the seduction.

Hadley is determined not to be distracted by Evangeline. He and the other Libertine Scholars are in pursuit of an enemy who has been striking at them from the shadows, and Evangeline’s mere presence could be dangerous. But with one smile, one touch, one taste of Evangeline’s lips, Hadley’s resolve is overpowered by much more pleasant memories. As the two enter into a discreet affair, Hadley vows to
give her his body, never his heart. That she will have to earn.



Wow, this book was quite a roller coaster of emotions! I really enjoyed it and felt for Evangeline and Hadley when they try to find their way back to each other after having been separated for five years. Five years that were spent in hell as far as Evangeline is concerned while Hadley still tries to come to terms with her betrayal or what he thinks to be a betrayal.
Are five years too long to ever make things right again between them? Is there a chance for happiness or is that chance gone forever?
When other forces threaten to destroy their blossoming relationship again, Evangeline and Hadley try to strike back. That's when everything starts to happen at once and suddenly they find themselves in even more danger than before....

I really enjoyed reading this book. It is fast-paced, emotional and imaginative and it has an interesting story and well developed characters as well. The story is part of the "Disgraced Lords"-Series but it can easily be read as a stand-alone - well, it could be read as a stand-alone but as you will probably want to read the other books as well after you have finished this book (at least I suddenly "found" all the other books of the series on my wish list after I had finished "A Taste of Seduction"), you might as well start at the beginning just to enjoy how the whole story unfolds. Actually I was a bit frustrated at the end of the book because there was a bit of a cliffhanger there, not a big one but if you really have to know how the story goes on it is rather hard to have to wait at all. Fortunately the next book in the series will be out in October so we won't have to wait too long.

I really liked this well written book and I'm looking forward to reading the other books of the series - and other books by the author!

★★★★
