Ms Elliott has a wonderful secondary character, flowers.
I fell in love with the Lords of Midnight with the first book and was not let down with the second one!
Mom of 4
Eliza was a perfect foil for Gryff and they balanced each other so beautifully.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Cara Elliott is the latest incarnation of Andrea DaRif Pickens, who as Andrea Pickens wrote several Signet Regencies in the late 1990s and early 2000s (e.g.,The Defiant Governess (Signet Regency Romance)), as Andrea DaRif wrote 2 HRs in 2003/2004 (The Tiger's Mistress and A Kiss of Spice) and as Andrea Pickens wrote a female spy series in 2007/2008 (beginning with The Spy Wore Silk). Now she's back as Cara Elliott with this TOO... series, about 3 rakish fellows.

The plot of this one has aspects of Andrea Pickens' Code of Honor (Signet Regency Romance), in that H and h share a love of botany and aspects of her A Lady of Letters, in which the h is an anonymous writer of political essays with whom the H corresponds without knowing her identity. Here the heroine is an anonymous book illustrator and painter of botanical subjects and the hero is an anonymous writer of books extolling landscaping and the botanical arts. We have an added subplot here of a profligate, spendthrift brother who is involved with unsavory characters and in danger of losing everything and of putting his sister's reputation in jeopardy.

So this could have been a pretty good book.

A guilty conscience needs to confess. A work of art is a confession. - Albert Camus

It is time for another Cara Elliott masterpiece! Elliott exceeds her own high standards with TOO TEMPTING TO RESIST - Book Two in the Lords of Midnight Series. The title offers so many metaphors ... and the back cover only scratches the surface of the passionate encounters between Lady Eliza Brentford and Gryffin Dwight, the Marquess of Haddan. To discuss more of the plot would spoil the fun, but let me set up the story:

- Eliza's brother finds Gryffin "too tempting" as a Regency rake to resist following his footsteps through gaming hells.

- When confronting Gryffin to stop leading her brother to debtor's prison, Eliza finds him "too tempting" to resist day dreaming.

- Eliza's brother invites Gryffin to a house party; the house's landscape is "too tempting" to resist a weekend certain to be filled with sophomoric pranks of wannabees.

- Gryffin finds Eliza too tempting on each meeting they have, one situation that is amusing, endearing, and sizzling.

Elliott delivers hidden gems throughout the story that confirm their attraction - Gryffin certainly lives up to his Welsh heritage and sensuous reputation. As their attraction grows into love, the conflict gives Eliza and Gryffin the opportunity to act as adults in finding their own Happily Ever After.

Recommended read for historical fans with a sophisticated taste in arts, gardens, and dialogue. I received an ARC from the publisher for this review.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I won't go into summarizing the plot to this novel because others have done it so well. My analysis of this book will be centered around the characters and the author's ability to deliver a realistically romantic story with a suspenseful plot involving engaging characters. I do apologize for such a long review (with some spoilers), but I feel that I owe other readers that really invest their time, savings and effort of trying to get away to a wonderful place of a good quality romance, but end up completely disheartened and let down feeling totally ripped off when reading less than average reads, like the one I experienced in this book.

In a nutshell, our heroine is a widow who was pretty much married at a very young age and was rather mistreated in said marriage. Because of this very bad marital experience, her conclusion on men is not a positive one. She is pretty much holding down the fort so to speak on her brother's entire estate and finances while he is too busy being irresponsible, in a drunken state 24 hours a day as he spends his entire time at gaming halls and brothels resulting in surmounting debts, especially to one of his conniving friends who is secretly selling art forgeries on the side in the black market. Our poor heroine has to resist the unsolicited and lewd advances some of her brother's friends try upon her person each and every time they come for a visit to the family estate, until said advance comes from our dashing and very good looking hero, who possesses having a VERY large dragon tattoo extending from his chest and heading upside down to all the way down to his very private parts where it almost seems that said dragon is attempting to lick his "p" as stated in the book.

More About the Author

I started creating books at the age of five, or so my mother tells me. And she has the proof--a neatly penciled story, the pages lavishly illustrated with full color crayon drawings of horses and bound with staples--to back up her claim. I have since moved on from Westerns to writing about Regency England, a time and place that has captured my imagination ever since I opened the covers of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice."

I have a BA and an MFA in Graphic Design from Yale University and now work as the Creative Director of a lifestyle sporting magazine, a job which lets me combine my love of the printed word with my love of art. I'm very fortunate in that my work allows me to travel to interesting destinations around the world--however, my favorite spot is London, where the funky antique markets and used book stores offer a wealth of inspiration for my stories.
