The Disgraced Lords Series
A Loveswept Historical Romance
Written by Bronwen Evans
Release date, April 15, 2014
In the second novel in Bronwen Evans’s sexy new Disgraced Lords series, two very independent souls find themselves fighting to resist a deepening passion.
When Beatrice Hennessey sets out to confront Lord Coldhurst, the notorious rogue who killed her brother in a duel, her intent is to save her family from destitution. She’s determined to blackmail the man into a loveless marriage. She’ll make the wealthy Lord Coldhurst pay for the rest of his life. But while greeting his ship, Beatrice takes a tumble into the Thames—only to be fished out by a pair of strong masculine arms that tempt her to stay locked in their heated embrace forever. That is, until she realizes those arms belong to Sebastian Hawkestone, Lord Coldhurst himself.
The little drowned mermaid has an interesting proposition indeed; one that Sebastian is surprised to find quite agreeable. Although he’s had women more beautiful, she is pleasing to the eye, and besides, it’s time he fathered an heir. Beatrice promises to be the ideal wife; a woman who hates him with an all-consuming passion is far too sensible to expect romance. However, it isn’t long before Sebastian’s plan for a marriage of convenience unravels, and he’s caught up in the exhilarating undertow of seduction.
Beatrice & Sebastian
Hotness factor: Let it burn, let it burn, let it burn!
I RECEIVED AN ARC IN EXCHANGE OF THE HONEST REVIEW
This is the second book of Disgraced Lords series. Once again, one of the Libertine Scholars has been set up, this time it was Sebastian Hawkestone, we already knew from A Kiss of Lies. He killed a man in a duel. Have you noticed how their libertine ways get them into trouble? Maybe they should use their scholars’ knowledge a little more. Sebastian was on the run in Jamaica until he received a royal pardon. On his arrival back from exile, Beatrice Hennessey accosted him with a very interesting proposal: you killed my brother, now you shall marry me. I love historical romances and their noble logic!
Sebastian and Beatrice’s match was far from being a love one… at first. I mean, who wants to lay with her brother’s killer? But as more information was revealed, the truth about the duel and the vendetta against the Libertine Scholars came to light. But Sebastian and Beatrice were already hitched and decided to stay married anyway. Again, I love historical romances and their noble logic!
Unlike A Kiss of Lies’ Christian and Serena, two deeply wounded souls finding each other, A Promise of More’s Sebastian and Beatrice looked and acted more like most heroes in historical romance novels. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed the mystery part of the book and the entire series… I think I figure who is executing their vengeance on the Libertine Scholars and I’m dying to ask the author if I’m right. Bronwen Evans, you might receive a message.
The book is full of heated passion and interesting analogies. The characters are smart and funny when they don’t think with their… I recommend the book and the series. I’ll personally keep on following it until the last one.
