But for the memory of the lovely Lady Helena Fairchild undressed in his bed. Intrigued by her boldness, and yearning to know her innermost secrets, Desmond can't help a temptation beyond all reason This book was okay and I mean "Just OK"! Here is a woman who comes across a man who just happened to like his share of women. Well, we all know what happens next.
Yes, they like each other and then they live happily ever after. It was way too predictable. I mean I would read a page skip 2 or 3 pages then read 4 and skip 2 more. It was like once you knew what was going to happen you didn't want to read anymore. It had a few steamy sex scenes but just too much inbetween. Apr 20, Ben rated it did not like it.

She accepts him again and they get married after some more arguing and dramatics. A dramatic couple, for sure. They eventually get their HEA though, but not without more hysterics and stuff.
All in all, it was a decently entertaining story. Sometimes it was silly, and the heroine and her dramatics and hissy fits, and the hero with his bossiness was a little much, but I liked it well enough for a day's diversion. It kind of reminded me of the newer style Catherine Coulter works in a way.
I'm glad I can check another one off of Mt. TBR, though if I see the sequel, Helena's story, on a bookhunting trip, I might pick it up out of curiosity.

Yeah, he's happy now but I predict that in book 5 of the series Olivia will have a second chance at love when Sebastian, a shell of his former self, dies of exhaustion, as if sucked dry by a vampire.
