New Warren series: Byrons of Braebourne

Tempted By His Kiss
Author: Tracy Ann Warren
Series Connection: Byrons of Braebourne
Genre: Historical


London society knows the Byrons are "mad, bad, and dangerous" and every bit as fascinating as their poetic non-relation. Join the fun as New York Times bestselling author Tracy Anne Warren presents the first tale of this tempestuous family—famous for scandal and legendary at love . . .

Orphaned beauty Meg Amberley never planned to pose as Lord Cade Byron's fiancée. Caught in a snowstorm, she takes refuge at his estate. Stranded together, Meg soon finds herself falling under Cade's spell. When the roads clear, she intends to leave, but fate intervenes.

Haunted by his past, Cade Byron has buried himself in the country. Then Meg—with her lush curves—invades his house and his life. With her reputation compromised, he proposes a pretend engagement and a London season where she can find a husband.

But as their charade deepens, Cade can't let her go . . . vowing to tempt her with a kiss that just may lead to forever.

Author bio from her Website:
Tracy Anne Warren is the New York Times Bestselling author of six Regency historical romance novels, including The Wedding Trap and His Favorite Mistress. Her books have appeared on the USA Today Bestsellers’ list and the Borders’ Group List of Bestselling Single Title Romance Paperbacks. She has won numerous writing awards, including Romance Writers’ of America’s prestigious RITA® Award, the National Readers’ Choice Award, the New Jersey Golden Leaf, the Golden Quill, and others.

My View on her book:
Lord Cade Byron is hiding away from his family with a leg injury after being tortured during the war. He isn't in a good place in his world when stranger Meg arrives during a severe snow storm. Not happy to be interrupted Cade allows her to stay for one night. One night becomes several as the snow storm continues.

Over time the couple fall in love, but Cade feels so much guilt over falling in love with Meg because of his past that they go through a lot of rough times before they finally make their way to each other. I loved Meg's character in this book. She was charming and witty, but she had her own shortcomings and at times I wanted to ring her neck.

As I've said before I'm not a great fan of historicals, but I'm really trying to expand my horizons. This one wasn't bad to cut my teeth on. The author's writing style is pretty good and I actually got into the read fairly easily. So while I didn't give this book a five, a three is a pretty good rating just the same since I still working towards finding historicals good reads.
