Having really enjoyed Pride & Passion (Brethren Guardians), I was anxious to read about Lady Elizabeth's story. Unfortunately, I really really REALLY didn't like this story. I only read to find out about the villain who has been torturing the 3 heroes and had hopes it would get better.

This story had a few things that I just couldn't get past.

First, I absolutely HATED Iain. The story opens with him seducing a married lady who has ties to the House of Orpheus (their nemesis.) I was not impressed with him whoring himself out. The author tries to explain through the words of Black that Iain is really a man of honor by seducing and sleeping with married woman by saying he believes so strongly in marital vows that he feels the need to punish those who don't by breaking those vows with them. Really? But truthfully, he is just a manslut. He's not a "libertarian." He's a manslut.

Iain has pined for Elizabeth since their affair 12 years ago, but sleeps with everyone else. When he gets shot in a duel for sleeping with a man's wife he has his deathbed moment when he realizes that he just wants to be with Elizabeth. So, he goes and assaults her at a dinner party he wasn't invited to and is shocked SHOCKED! that she doesn't lie on her back with her legs spread for him and weeps about how much she wants him. He figured that she kept herself all prim and proper for him while he's whoring himself out. He really was stunned that she doesn't want to be with him.

Second, however horrible Iain was I kept waiting for his redemption. Give me something to believe that he has changed and is worthy of this awesome lady. It never really came for me.

I have some very mixed feelings about this book. I've been waiting and waiting for Elizabeth and Alynwick's story ever since we first met them in book one of the trilogy. The way these two clearly pined for one another was captivating and I was very curious to see the big explanation of what drove them apart all those years ago. One of the things that bothered me the most while reading, was the fact that explanation let me down. But I'm getting ahead of myself.

I fully expected this story to pick up where the last one left off, but it didn't. In fact, the first 90% of the book overlapped with the timeline of the other stories. I can't say it was redundant, because it wasn't. We see events and perspectives we weren't privy to before. But it did have me off balance, trying to recall details from the other books that are casually referenced here. Not only that, but I kept waiting and waiting for the big kidnapping that ended the last book. I was waiting a long time.

As the story begins, Alynwick is working to seduce a married woman with ties to Orpheus. He was hoping he could use his connection to her to unmask the villain working against the Brethren Guardians. Watching our hero whore himself out did not endear him to me. In fact, I spent the whole story waiting for a redemption of his character that never came.

After being shot in duel, Alynwick comes to the realization that he is in love with Elizabeth and regrets discarding her after their love affair 12 years ago. The thing is, she refuses his advances. She knows him for the manslut he is and will not open herself to trusting him again. So he pushes and she flees. Then he pushes more and she flees again.

I actually did like Lizzie. She is blind, but doesn't want her infirmity to define her.

First, let's be real clear: this book has nothing to do with vampires. So those of you searching for the latest in Edward and Bella's romantic travails (and really it is time to LET THEM GO, especially since the unfortunate portmanteau of Renesmee) need to keep on keeping on.

Temptation & Twilight is part of a series about the Brethren Guardians (the others are Pride & Passionn and Seduction & Scandal, which I did not read and I had no problems understanding this one), a trio of men related to the Knights of the Templar. Iain Sinclair, the Marquis of Alynwick, is one of the Brethren, which are under siege by Evil Forces out to destroy them - or at least make them miserable and make money off of them. There are some red herrings thrown in your way about who the bad guy is, and ultimately it is someone completely out of left field. Maybe if I read the first two it would make sense? Because it didn't.

But this being a Hot Romance Novel, let's hit on that element, shall we?

Lady Elizabeth York and Iain were lovers when she was 19 and he 21, and now, 11 years later, neither can shake off the feelings they still have for each other. He left her lo those many years ago, and at some point in this book you find out why. They are wildly attracted to each other, even if Lizzy fights her feelings at every turn.

Oh - and there is one more eensy problem: Lizzy is blind. Yep. She can't see, and while everyone around her is just peachy about the whole thing, Iain makes one wrong move after another.
