Descripción

With Passions of a Wicked Earl, USA Today and New York Times bestseller Lorraine Heath kicks off a new series of delightfully sinful historical romance novels featuring "London's Greatest Lovers." The first romantic adventure involving the titled and rakish sons of a scandalous Dowager Duchess and their tales of passion, pleasure, and love, Passions of a Wicked Earl concerns the innocent and unfairly disgraced young wife of the first brother and her brazen attempts to win back the dashing rogue's heart…by any means necessary!

Sobre el autor

When multiple New York Times bestselling author Lorraine Heath received her BA degree in psychology from the University of Texas, she had no idea she had gained a foundation that would help her create believable characters—characters often described as “real people.” The daughter of a British beauty and a Texan stationed at RAF Bovingdon, Lorraine was born in England but soon after moved to Texas. Her dual nationality has given her a love for all things British and Texan, and she enjoys weaving both heritages through her stories.

I would recommend this book especially if you enjoy Regency England, the twists and turns of life, the joy of being loved and the complex relationship between husband and wife. This book was received from Net Galley for review and details can be found a Harper Collins Publishers and My Book Addiction and More.

    Good story with engaging characters. Silly and unnecessary little melodrama at the end.

    this was OK. not fantastic, but it didn't suck. which is good. it just didn't seem to stand out in the crowd. perhaps I was spoiled by the last historical romance I read, which I loved. it's happened before...
    anyway, claire married westcliffe when she was 17 and he 25 (ew). unfortunately she was terrified of him so schemed with his brother to delay the marriage bed. a plan that doesn't work the way they expect. fast forward a number of years and claire needs westcliffe's help. her sister is in the same situation she was, only she has a chance, a season. but in order for it to work claire and westcliffe must show a unified front.

    Morgan Lyons, Earl of Westcliffe, after finding his bride in the arms of his brother, can't forgive her, and banishes her to the country estate, then he settles in England, a conossiur of woman alike. He has never been able to forgive or forget the one night, that should have been theirs. Claire Lyons, having been bethrothed to Morgan knowing that she would end up married to him, but never spent time with him before they got married, was afraid of him. So when his brother offered a way that would give her time before having to give her body to the Earl, she agreed being a little drunk, but not knowing what it would entailed. After the fact, she fully regrets it, and stays at the country estate, managing it as well as any man, but when her sister is of age, she goes to England to reconcile with her enstranged husband and to put her sister out into society. But seeing Morgan again, and after sharing a passionate kiss with him, she sets her out to seduce him and win him back to her side forever, to have his love and non other. I truly loved reading Passions of a Wicked Earl, it was such a engaging and warm read, that had me aching for more but yet leaving me fully satisfied at the end. We see Morgan, who had planned at the beginning to keep true to his vows, but after seeing his brother holding his wife, never mind that both had their clothes on, he feels betrayel stab to his heart, and vows to never forgive her or forget that horrible night, where he knows their marriage is a farce. However when she returns to London, he knows he can never trust her, however passions ignite between the two, and he starts wondering if he should have listened to her all those years ago, and should he trust in her again, or will he only be betrayed once more? Both Morgan and Claire find a love benetah all the mistrust and betrayal, where they learn to trust with full hearts. Passions of a Wicked Earl is one of my favorite romances written by this author so far, it had such a emotional twist to it that went to the heart of this reader, definitely looking forward to reading the sequel in this wonderful series.

    This author is normally good to great but this one was disappointing. The hero was TDTL, the issue is a misunderstandings and pride. The heroine is way too understanding and a doormat. The hero did not grovel any where near enough, or at all. The villain is just cliche and anti women. Avoid. Read lord of scoundrels or Mr impossible

    This has become one of my favorite historical romance books. It fits the formula, but there are differences to your run of the mill HR.1) The prologue actually serves the correct purpose of a prologue!! I’m usually not a prologue fan, but this one gave one scene from the past that sets the stage for the beginning of the book. It worked.2) From the get go, tension fills the air. The author sets the stage of a prolific earl in the room of his current lover, but before he leaves we see his “real love” is still on his mind. Nice foreshadowing here.3) We don’t wait long for the conflict of the story to begin. Good thing about this is the whole book is about these two coming to terms a misunderstanding from 3 years past and both wanting the other. Granted, pride is in the way, of course. The bad part of this is I felt awful for most of the book! lol I really liked these characters and loved watching them evolve with revelations of each other, etc. But, really wanting them to get together and the obstacles that get in the way could drive a reader crazy. A slow, steady dread in my stomach resided for most of the book. 4) I am SO THANKFUL the writer does not have the earl continuing to have sex with women when his wife comes back. Even though there is a lot to figure out between them and he wants a divorce, you KNOW in a romance there will be a happy ending. I hate it when the man still has relations with someone else until “all” is resolved.5) The villain in this book, the jilted lover, is truly a villain. She’s not just a jealous lover…nope; this lady has more up her sleeve than I am use to in a HR. She doesn’t quit!This book fits the historical romance formula for fans to be appeased, but it also adds more tension, more intrigue, more heartbreak, and joy than usual. I very much enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to romance fans.
