Excerpt:
Catherine didn’t know if she wanted to tell Lord Ashworth about her retreat. She had come upon it not long after her marriage to Edgar, and it had offered her the only peace she was to know for a long time.
It was dangerous to share the only thing that belonged to one. Yet the thought of spending an afternoon with the earl in her most treasured place, sharing a leisurely meal, beckoned her. She glanced shyly over her shoulder to see if he still followed.

Lord Ashworth rode only a few yards behind her horse, and he grinned when their eyes met. He had a lazy, sensual smile and, when he looked at her like that, she felt an odd breathless catch in her throat. She wondered how it would feel if he were to place those warm lips to hers instead of the back of her hand.
Oh dear! There went that catch again.

Within moments they entered a clearing. Catherine dismounted without waiting for the earl’s assistance and swung her arms wide as she turned in a circle about the shaded copse. “What do you think?” she asked.

The earl, still astride, cast his gaze slowly around the tiny glen as he studied the scenery. He then turned his attention to Catherine but did not speak. A suggestive grin broke the calm of his expression as he continued to watch her. “More beautiful than I could have imagined,” he murmured.

Simple statement that, but it held a wealth of meaning. Catherine dropped her arms while staring back in fascination. Her mouth fell open and her breathing quickened. The air vibrated with unspoken words as they shared a moment of absolute understanding. The specter of desire had been brought into the open and was acknowledged.

Easy to read and enjoyble

The characters grow on you in this easy to read book! Was a tad predictable .. But hey.. Isn't that why we read these romance books!

Blacksorrento ,

Light read

Nothing here to test the grey matter, just a light easy read.
Adam gets played by the Baron, Catherine the Baron's beautiful wife is a pawn in the same game.
Can they find their way out of the game without hurting anyone. A bit predictable, a well edited story with a HEA. Certainly gives you an idea with a foray into the small mentality of the Regency ton, especially if you are innocent fodder for their voracious bad mouthing.

In the Garden Of temptation

Ebook. 6.5/10
Regency
An extraordinarily beautiful girl is married to an old rich gent, who unfortunately can't bear any human contact. For seven years he was unable to consummate the marriage but he wanted an heir, so he kept bringing men around and leaving his wife alone with them, hoping she would screw someone and get pregnant. Finally an Earl is attractive to her, but she didn't get pregnant, so the old Baron takes her London for the first time and hopes she and the Earl make woopie. They do, and once she's pregnant the Baron convinces the Earl's mother to convince her not to tell the Earl about the pregnancy and that if she loves him she should let him go without creating a scandal, rather than running off with him and ruining his social standing and political career. Baby is a girl and the Baron is becoming more unstable. He dies. Happy ending
