Book Description

In Samantha Kane’s erotic tale of secrets and temptation, a woman whose only defense is seduction targets a rake who teaches her the true meaning of love.
 
As wealthy and beautiful as she is desperate, Harriet Mercer can have any man she wants—which makes picking the worst of the lot quite easy. By convincing the ton she is a ruined woman, Harry hopes to outwit the greedy, conniving cad blackmailing her into a loveless marriage. Roger Templeton is a rogue with a scandalous reputation, no expectations, and no shame. He is perfect for Harry’s fall from grace. Her brazen attempts at a very public seduction are delightful fodder for gossip . . . and pure torment for Roger.
 
With his pockets as empty as his heart, Roger is in no mood for games and decides to show Harry how foolish it is to tempt a devil. But behind her mesmerizing golden eyes, he sees something unexpected: a woman in trouble. Her scandalous behavior would be amusing if he wasn’t captivated by her lush, curvaceous beauty. Worse, every libertine bone in his body has turned traitorously noble. Only a rake would seduce her. But only a gentleman in love can save her.
 
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: The Devil’s Thief, Flirting with Disaster, and Long Simmering Spring.

3.0 out of 5 stars You are all grown up now! Or are you? February 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Harriet Stanley Mercer has a problem and she believes that becoming a ruined woman will solve it. While endeavoring to be ruined, she gets cold feet, and starts to fight off the man she has picked to ruin her. Roger Templeton was just taking a walk in the garden of his host and hostess when he hears this scuffle. He reluctantly decides to see what the problem is, when he discovers the victim is none other than a childhood friend from home. Roger has not seen this gorgeous siren since he was fifteen. and she nine. During their childhood association, he was always having to rescue her. Will he be able to now that they are grown?

The plot of this story is very light on the mystery introduced and heavy on the "Should I have sex with that woman?" on his part, and "I can't wait to see him nude." on her part. For this reader, it just seemed very juvenile. Both the H and the h had much sexual experience before this, so it did not ring true that these parties would be so inept at seduction and dalliance. It brought frustration and boredom.

The hero seems to have no self-esteem. Who wants a hero like that? Boring! For a majority of the book, the Hero even runs from an affair with the heroine. The heroine did not play well in the time period of the book. Her aggressive and reckless manner would have not been tolerated in that time period. Once again, an author that tries to write contemporary characters in an historical setting. The entire mystery revolves around the heroine's child, but the author does not ever develop this child as a character. Most of the characters are little more than cardboard figures for the back drop of the great sex debate.

I have read two novels by Ms. Kane.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tempting a Devil July 9, 2013
By Vanessa
Format:Kindle Edition
I just absolutely adored Harry and Roger. They make a great couple, but they are just as incredible as individuals. Harriet is trying to be an independent woman in a time when that was just not done. I say trying, yet she really was succeeding. She had a plan. She knew exactly how to get what she wants. What she wants is the man blackmailing her out of her life. The best way to do this is the ruin her name. She has no desire to remarry so what harm can a ruined reputation cause. She sees Roger as the perfect means to her end and the chase is on. Harry proceeds to spend an incredible amount of time Tempting a Devil. The tempting and the chasing make for a very sweet romance with a sensual dose of heat.

There were so many times I almost felt sorry for Roger. As a man he of course knows how to handle any situation. Harry keeps him on his toes as she is always doing the unexpected. Roger sees that her behavior is going to make her the target of gossip and he is doing his best to stop her from ruining her name, not realizing that that is exactly what she is trying to do. Roger has the reputation that could easily shame Harry, but he is gentleman enough to try to protect her from the scandal even though she tempts him in ways he never thought possible. This made them such a fun couple to read as they bumble their way to the fated happily ever after.

The Saint's Devils series has the most fascinating group of secondary characters. I still can't wait to get my hands on Hil's book. I do hope we readers get to see more Wiley in that one. In my opinion both books in this series work just fine as a stand-alone.

Favorite quote, Roger to Harriet: "I love the feel of you loving the way I feel."

3.0 out of 5 stars Steamy Historical Romantic Mystery July 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
There are pockets of passion in Tempting a Devil that are VERY hot. Roger's desire, barely leashed, is toe-curling fun. His refusal to consummate the "affair" inspires delivery of creative and delicious alternative erotic experiences. Roger is wildly sensual, charmingly tender and sweetly respectful of sexually naive Harriet. Equally enjoyable is witnessing Harriet's sexual liberation. She grows bold and assertive as her body and spirit are awakened.

I was hoping for a little more scoundrel in Roger's character. He is touted as a devil and a ruthless rake. We have to take his word for it because in this story, almost from the start, despite reactive gruffness and discontent with events, he chooses to be a chivalrous, honor-bound gentleman. I would have loved to have seen more of Roger's devilish side before he chose to reform.

This is a breezy afternoon read. The romance isn't overly dramatic nor the mystery too involved that you can't put the book down. The steamy bits however... you'll want to read those juicy scenes with undivided attention.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Okay Read July 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I'd never read anything by Ms. Kane, so decided to give this a try, since it fell in one of my favorite genres (historical romances). Overall, I have to say it was a decent book. Harriet (Harry) has a plan to avoid getting forced into marriage with a man who could ruin her with the town (it's not a spoiler to admit that the villain fathered Harry's child because Harry's husband, Lord Mercer, was incapable since it comes out in the first few chapters). The villain wants Harry because she's got Lord Mercer's entire fortune and his family is demanding he find a well-bred and well-reputationed woman to settle down with. Harry, in an effort to avoid that, wants to ruin herself by having an affair despite a distaste for the bedroom thanks to said villain's sex.

When she tries to lure a man, distaste for her potential lover maeks her change her mind, which the man doesn't like and she runs into Roger, who she promptly tries to seduce and he willingly goes along...until they discover they're old childhood friends.

As time passes, Roger resists temptation, at first because it would be a come down in the world since it would be abhorent for a man to marry for money (because he'd be a fortune hunter), and then for a very brief time, because he thinks she married for money/status, and that doesn't sit well either.

This had a very unusual ending to my mind, because of the choice Roger makes in order to make himself feel worthy/acceptable as a mate for Harry, and as part of his attempt to woo her once she realizes she's afraid of being married again. That's probably why I end up liking it more than simply dismissing it as a meh, mediocre book.
