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.

Customer Reviews

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
Well our heroine just couldn't put up with being blackmailed, and why should she?

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.

If you love Regency romance than Cara Elliot should be a must your book shelf. Elliott sets Regency romance rocking.

Whatever you are reading at this very moment put it down and pick up a copy of Historical romance authors TOO TEMPTING TO RESIST. This is Elliott's second installment in her fantastically fascinating exotic Lords of Midnight domain. This group of Hellhound rogues will win your heart from the moment they enter your quixotic atmosphere.

TOO TEMPTING TO RESIST is the story of the Marquess of Hadden, Gryffin Dwight, who readers were introduced to in TOO WICKED TO WED. The story takes place in the opulent and plush Regency world of the ton. For years the Marquess and his Hellhound brothers have honed their rapscallion ways by owning one f London's seedier hell known as The Wolf's Lair. Hadden recently has felt a shift come upon him. His old ways do not seem to beguile him. Not as much as the blonde haired, blue eyed angel, Lady Eliza Brentford, has run her wayward brother down to his favorite den. Nothing prepares Hadden for the beauties feisty and steadfast nature. Tempted be on reason, Gryffin finds himself drawn to Eliza like a bee to flowers sweet nectar. He knows she is trouble, but there is something about this country spirit that leaves all rational thought behind when she is around.

Lady Eliza is not some insipid country bumpkin. No this spirited gel has hunted her wicked wastrel of a brother to give him a piece of her mind. She never expected to find the very devastatingly handsome stranger, with stunning green eyes her brothers Deity of sin starring at her among the raucous and revelry of The Wolf's Den. The man was made for sin. Eliza becomes intoxicated yearning to learn more about the rakehell with the stunning green eyes.

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.
