About the Author

New Zealander BRONWEN EVANS loves story-telling - gobbling up movies, books and theatre.  Her head is always filled with characters and stories, particularly lovers in angst.  In 2007, encouraged by a close friend battling a deliberating illness, Bronwen finally started down the path to publication by joining RWA, The Beau Monde. RWAustralia and RWNZ. Bronwen's first manuscript, INVITATION TO RUIN,  was completed late 2009 and was sold by her agent, Melissa Jeglinski of The Knight Agency, to Kensington Publishing early 2010, in a two book deal. Her debut novel, INVITATION TO RUIN, received a 4.5 star rating from RT Book Reviews and has been nominated in the 2011 RT Reviewer's Choice awards - Best First Historical. Invitation to Ruin was also well received in Publishers Weekly - Evans's debut Regency is filled with sizzling romance... Strong characterizations, smooth plotting, and plenty of explicit sex will appeal to fans of modern Regencies. (Mar.)

More About the Author

Waving from Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.

I'm a USA Today Bestselling author and lover of romance novels. I love reading all genres but in particular historical romance. Here's my bio:

USA Today Bestselling author, Bronwen Evans, grew up loving books. She's always indulged her love for story-telling, and is constantly gobbling up movies, books and theatre. Her head is filled with characters and stories, particularly lovers in angst. Being able to write her characters' stories is never work, it's a dream come true. Is it any wonder she's a proud romance writer.

She writes both historical and contemporary sexy romances for the modern woman who likes intelligent, spirited heroines, and compassionate alpha heroes. Her debut Regency romance, Invitation to Ruin won the RomCon 2012 Readers Crown Best Historical and was an RT Reviewers' Choice Nominee Best First Historical 2011. Her novella, To Dare the Duke of Dangerfield, was a finalist in the Kindle Book Review Indie Romance Book of the Year 2012 and the RomCon Readers Crown 2013.

Her first Entangled Publishing Indulgence release, The Reluctant Wife, WON the RomCon Readers Crown 2013 for Best Category/Series.

When not ensconced in her study writing her characters' thrilling journeys to their happy ever after, Bron can be found on the golf course.

Generally good plot but there is one stupid part.

***original review posted at Romancing Rakes For The Love of Romance***

Rheda Kerrich has been keeping her family and the town of Deal afloat with a bit of smuggling. She refuses to marry even though a friend has asked a few times. Independence, a horse breeding business and making sure poor people of Deal have enough to get by are her top priorities. She will stop at nothing and bend to no one to get all of it accomplished.

Enter, one dashing, Rufus Knight. Since his father's death, he's been chasing leads trying to clear his father's name. His father was thought to have sold secrets to France and paid for it with his life. His quest brings him to Deal and he's on the hunt for the Dark Shadow. Somehow this man, who is a known smuggler, is connected with the mystery of his father's death.

Temptation comes in the form of one golden-haired angel who sets his blood on fire. Finding her pinned to a tree by a barrel, he's intrigued. Both with the lady and her barrel. No slip of a woman could have moved it but somehow she did. Until it backfired on her. The attraction is instant on both sides. Rufus is intent on seducing the information out of this mysterious woman after finding out she is the sister to a baron. Seduce her discreetly of course.

Rheda will have none of this. Between trying to mate her mares in the dead of night with Rufus' studly stallion, trying to deny her primal and carnal attraction to Rufus and keeping the secret of Dark Shadow safe, Rheda isn't ready for this onslaught of feelings for this randy rake.

Rufus was betrayed by a woman he once loved and he vows it will never happen again. The lovely Rheda is starting to get under his skin and worm her way into his heart. Denial, thy name is Rufus.

Rheda Kerrich thinks her days of smuggling are going to come to an end when she is trapped against a tree from her latest smuggle, a barrel of wine. She is sure one of the men on patrol will find her and question her and then a magnificent horse appears with a mysterious man on his back. Rufus Knight, Viscount Strathmore, is on the hunt for the elusive smuggling ring leader, Dark Shadow and knows he has stumbled upon a woman who must be in the ring and will surely lead him to the answers he desires to clear his late fathers name. Being a master of seduction, he attempts to seduce the surely un-innocent woman and is roundly put in his place and Rheda manages to escape without revealing her true identity. She tries to put the man out of her mind but she finds it hard to do but has a harder time putting the magnificent stallion as he is the last piece of the puzzle she needs to get her horse breeding business going. Rheda cleverly thinks up a plan to 'borrow' the stallion but is unfortunately caught and forced to agree to a bargain with Rufus, otherwise her latest scandal will be told to her brother. As Rheda tries to protect all her secrest, Rufus is intent on uncovering them all and at the same time, these two attempt to deny the smoldering attraction between them. Who is the elusive Dark Shadow and will Rufus and Rheda be able to let go of the past to find a future together?

I really enjoyed this book! I wasn't sure if I was going to like the whole smuggling aspect of it as that really isn't my preference, but there was so much more to this story! I loved that Rheda wanted to start a horse breeding business and we got to see a bit of what it takes to do that...and at the same time see the attraction bloom between our couple during a lesson.

Format: Paperback
The hero is 32 year old Rufus Knight. He's got brown hair and brown eyes. The heroine is 25 year old blonde and green-eyed Rheda Kerrich. Boy, do they have an interesting first meeting! He's attracted to her from the start and she, him. He's in town to find out who a smuggler, who goes by the name Dark Shadow, is. After meeting Rheda he believes she knows who that person is.

Rheda is involved with things she shouldn't be. She's trying to be independent and earn her own money. She has turned down Christopher's marriage proposal several times because she doesn't want to be dependent on any man. She confides important things to him and it comes back to haunt her.

There's also a dark sexual and sinister subplot involving a terrible person and I enjoyed that part a lot. It came to a head at the end of the story and I felt the author could have handled it better, made it less obvious who the bad person was, made it someone else. I'd guessed it early on.

I was unexpectedly happy with this story. Wasn't sure I'd like it since I didn't like her previous novel but it sounded good so I gave it a shot. I really liked both lead characters and thought they were a perfect match.

I received this from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
