Description

The flames of desire fuel a torrid reunion as bestselling author Bronwen Evans returns with another captivating novel of the Disgraced Lords. See why Jen McLaughlin raves, “Bronwen’s historical romances always make the top of my reading list!”
 
Lady Evangeline Stuart chose to wed a tyrant with a title, or so society believes. That was five years ago—five long years that 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 far 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.

A KISS OF LIES | A PROMISE OF MORE | A TOUCH OF PASSION | A WHISPER OF DESIRE | A TASTE OF SEDUCTION | A NIGHT OF FOREVER

    2.5 stars – rounded I’ve read the first 3 books in this series, and now I jump forward to the fifth. The connection thread in this series is the Libertine Scholars, a group of young and titled male friends, all seeking to overcome their father’s inglorious reputations. Each of the Libertines is under threat, and eac is striving to solve the questions around them as they work to their happy ever after. A second chance at romance is the theme here, when Evangeline, now widowed and Hadley come face to face. Old emotions rise to the surface, despite a rather thinly felt but frequently referred to letter. Evangeline’s efforts to explain her ‘disastrous marriage’ and her lack of actual viscerally felt conflict and hesitation when encountering Hadley again after all the years let me down. I loved this series for the LACK of ‘missish’ heroines, that cookie cutter ‘oh save me’ heroines who seemed to be missing that oomph that would make them stand out. Editorially, Bronwen Evans was let down in this story. Many passages of show not tell took from the story, and a few twists and an unnecessary death just seemed to be added for effect, with little result. Adding in the secret child, a hero who was more able to berate and claim his hurt from betrayal than show it, and a general sense of wrap this up quick to get to an end without actually moving the connecting thread forward more than a few inches left me sad. This was a series that showed some great potential, but the installments after the first couple of books have let it down. I can only hope that the original editor from book one comes back and challenges Ms. Evans to live up to her writing and storytelling potential so clearly promised in the start of this series. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
  • Enjoyable read, fifth in the series

    This is part of a series which I have enjoyed reading. This is the story of Evangeline and Hadley. They planned to elope and evil intervenes. Five years later, they are face to face and try to sort out their feelings. Added to this mess is the hunt for the woman wreaking havoc on the Libertine Scholars. Kidnapping, blackmail, and death push their ability to love one another without guilt, anger, or fear. Evangeline is such a positive-thinking woman regardless of the things she has undergone. She keeps others around her from doing things they may regret. Hadley flourishes under her love and support, and he desires to protect her as he had not in the past. I thoroughly enjoyed this story as I have in the previous books and highly recommend it. I received a copy of this story through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    This is the best so far! Part of it may be because I love Lord Fullerton. He has such a sad backstory - and it's something that actually happened to him instead of to his parents, so it was much more pressing and heart-breaking to me as a reader. As the source of his heartbreak tracks him down, things get quite interesting. These two make such an amazing couple, but there are some secrets and misunderstandings - horrible ones - between them. And, of course, they all come out at the worst possible moment. I couldn't help but cheer for these two as they tried to navigate through their new sort-or-relationship. Things kept just getting in the way. Like big things. Family obligations, honor, reputation, and the by now ever present danger of the assassin. As in previous books in the series, there is a good dose of excitement as the assassin tries once again to ruin everyone's lives. But this one does not end the same as previous books! I soooo want to tell you, but I can't. But it is very very good. Now to settle in for the wait for book 6. *This book was received in exchange for an honest review*

    I adore this series. Each of the books is full of romance and a healthy dose of suspense that it will keep,you on the edge of your seat. With the series nearing it end its at the point that we've learned a great deal of the evil that is out to destroy "The Disgraced Lord". In "A Taste of Seduction" Lord Hadley Fullerton gets his HEA. Lady Evangeline is back. The woman who five years ago ripped his heart to shreds. With Hadley on the verge of doing his duty and marrying his world is spinning out of his control. Evangeline needs answers and has a huge secret. Hadley wants nothing to do with a woman who chooses money and a title over love. There's a fine line between love and hate. Hadley the protector of family and friends is about to learn just how early the evil started and the depths someone will go for revenge, including his own. I highly recommend this series and that you read them in order. They are not stand alone books. *Book Obsessed Chicks Review team
