She won't be tamed.
A fiery, unconventional Scot, Adaira Ferguson wears breeches, swears, and has no more desire to marry than she does to follow society's dictates of appropriate behavior. She trusts no man with the secret she desperately protects.
He can't forget.
Haunted by his past, Roark, The Earl of Clarendon, rigidly adheres to propriety, holding himself and those around him to the highest standards, no matter the cost. Betrayed once, he's guarded and leery of all women. Mistaking Roark for a known spy, Adaira imprisons him. Infuriated, he vows vengeance. Realizing her error, she's appalled and releases him, but he's not satisfied with his freedom. Roark is determined to transform Adaira from an ill-mannered hoyden to a lady of refinement.
He succeeds only to discover, he preferred the free-spirited Scottish lass who first captured his heart.
Add to Goodreads:
I enjoy Collette Cameron’s books quite a bit. While looking for audio companions, I found The Earl’s Enticement in the Kindle Unlimited program with the offer to purchase the audio version at a fantastic price, so I immediately downloaded it.
Ms. Cameron’s writing style is smooth and flowing, her characters are complex and her pacing is excellent. The plot for this book is well thought out. I immediately became enmeshed in the story.
I did not immediately fall in love with Adaira’s character because in the beginning she acts without much forethought and makes assumptions that turn out to be wrong. This impulsive behavior has what could turn out to be dire consequences. As the story unfolds I did grow to love her character.
Roark is an excellent hero. He shows he is willing to forgive, even though Adaira’s behavior is atrocious toward him in the beginning. He is a strong protector and shows love and caring toward his sister. He has a great deal of patience as well.
If you enjoy a Regency romance that will sweep you back in time, and one with a moving love story, then you will enjoy The Earl’s Enticement as much as I did. I look forward to reading other books by this very talented author. Happy reading!
