Editorial Reviews

Review

Heath is a consummate storyteller, whose characters leap from the pages. Their powerful emotions and intense passions translate exceptionally well to readers, allowing them to become deeply involved in the fascinating plot and leaving them breathless and wanting more. (RT Book Reviews (top pick) - 4.5 stars - Praise for LORD OF TEMPTATION)

From the Back Cover

Three young heirs, imprisoned by an unscrupulous uncle, escaped—to the sea, to the streets, to faraway battle—awaiting the day when they would return to reclaim their birthright.

Once upon a time, he was Lord Tristan Easton—now he is Crimson Jack, a notorious privateer beholden to none, whose only mistress is the sea. But all that will change when exquisite Lady Anne Hayworth hires his protection on a trip into danger and seduction. . .

Desperation brought Anne to the bronzed, blue-eyed buccaneer. But after the Captain demands a kiss as his payment, desire will keep her at his side. She has never known temptation like this—but to protect her heart, she knows she must leave him behind. Yet Tristan cannot easily forget the beauty—and when they meet again in a London ballroom, he vows he won't lose her a second time, as fiery passion reignited takes them into uncharted waters that could lead the second lost lord home. . .


More About the Author

Lorraine Heath always dreamed of being a writer. After graduating from the University of Texas, she wrote training manuals, press releases for a publicist, articles, and computer code, but something was always missing. In 1990, she read a romance novel and became not only hooked on the genre, but quickly realized what her writing lacked: rebels, scoundrels, and rogues. She's been writing about them ever since, for both adult and young adult readers (as Rachel Hawthorne, Jade Parker, and with her son as J. A. London). Her work has been recognized with numerous industry awards including RWA's RITA(R), a HOLT medallion, a Romantic Times Career Achievement Award, and four Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice Awards. Her novels have appeared on bestseller lists, including USA Today and the New York Times.

It worked out like all HEA's do, maybe a little too neatly and perfect.

I usually can't put down a book by Lorraine Heath. This latest book in the Lost Lords of Pembrooke series was not what I was expecting. I thought the story was monotonous and had a hard time making myself keep reading. I kept thinking it would get better. It was much the same through the rest of the book. Anne would say she couldn't keep seeing Tristan and then she would turn around and do it all over again and again. I thought both characters were very self centered and shallow. I don't believe the brothers act like they like each other much at all or ever did. Sebastian seems to care sometimes and then others he is very distant. I understand the feelings they went through when separated, but they just seem more like they can't stand one another instead of just feeling the hurt and abandonment they experienced when they were children. I think the best part of the book was at the very end. I won't give the ending away, but I must say it by far is not the best ending I have ever read. I could have done without this book but then maybe Rafe's story will be better and just maybe I needed to read this one to be able to understand something in Rafe's story. Hoping for better next time.

At first, I didn't think I was going to enjoy the latest edition of the Lost Lords of Pembroke, the heroine seemed too prickly and the hero too cocky but as I delved deeper into this very emotional story my feelings toward the leads changed and I was totally engrossed in their story.

Tristan is a ship captain and a contradiction. He's a Lord but eschews the title; he is educated but dresses almost like a ruffian and he appears insouciant yet is incredibly aware of all his surroundings. Tristan is a wanderer having been forced to sea at a young age. He is a restless soul.

He meets heroine, Lady Anne in a London tavern and he is attracted to her right away. She wants him to take her to her fiancé who left her four years earlier to fight in the Crimea. He declines her offer making her angry and she storms out.

Anne is determined to make her journey for many reasons and she is also determined to do things her way. Eventually Tristan agrees to transport her and they have a very interesting voyage. Anne almost bristles when she confronts Tristan and he enjoys their encounters but as the ship sails toward the Mediterranean these two drop their masks. Anne has been melancholy and guilt ridden, she needs to forgive herself and move on with her life. Tristan is scarred horribly from being separated from his brothers and losing his father, he is terrified of loving again.

Both characters try very hard to keep their hearts protected but soon they find themselves irresistibly drawn to each other. Both try to dismiss their feelings yet they just can't seem to let each other go. There are moments in this story which resonate with true heartache for the past and even for the present.

Lorraine Heath is a very good writer, she's definitely up there with some of the best historical romance writers. She's written another good one with Tristan's story, which is a continuation from the first book in the Lost Lords of Pembroke series, entitled She Tempts the Duke.

I think what really made the book solidly stand out for me was the passion between Anne and Tristan. I really liked the push and pull between them and the hot chemistry. Heath is brilliant at creating chemistry between her characters and in this book it's no different.

SPOILERS start here, please don't read if you want to read the book without knowing any of the plot:

Anne lost her fiance, whom she loved and was planning a life with, and wants to say a final goodbye to him at his resting place overseas. So, she comes up with a plan to hire a sea captain to take her there and upon the recommendation of her maid, wants to hire Tristan, who goes by the name of Crimson Jack.

Long story short; Tristan sees her and wants her and agrees to take her on the voyage for a price; one kiss. Anne agrees and they set off. Tristan thinks that Anne's fiance is alive while they are journeying to their destination, but regardless, his attraction to her, and hers to him, increases. When they arrive, Anne asks him to accompany her and they enter a cemetery and end up at a mass grave where her fiance has been put to rest. Tristan holds Anne while she sobs and they begin to have feelings for each other that went beyond the physical. Not long after, they go back on the ship to make their voyage home.

Eventually they succumb to passion, but Anne knows that Tristan belongs to the sea and makes no demands, but Tristan cannot seem to let her go.

I have enjoyed these stories about the Lost Lords. I loved the hero even though he struggled to choose the h. I understood that he was tortured and had suffered but I really wish he'd made his choice for her sooner.

****Spoiler****
I really didn't enjoy the fact that he went to the other guy interested in the h and convinced him to marry her. He left it until the very last minute to go after the h and I really hate that. It's like love is not enough. I guess I'm too much of a romantic.

Anyway it was still a great read and I love the author's writing style.
