To Surrender to a Rogue by Cara Elliott: Mini Book Review
by Cara Elliott
Hachette Book Group
Description: An expert in antiquities, Lady Alessandra della Giamatti arrives in Bath to excavate newly discovered Roman ruins-only to find herself caught in a web of evil intrigue by a blackmailer threatening to expose her scandalous past. The one man who can help her is Lord James "Black Jack" Pierson, a fellow member of the expedition and a sinfully handsome rogue whose tempting presence ignites a different sort of danger. Jack has clashed with Alessandra in the past, so when she suddenly surrenders her body he can't help being suspicious. Is she a scheming temptress? Or is she truly a lady in trouble? As desire and deceptions swirl around them, Alessandra and Jack must find a way to win each other's trust. For if they don't work together to uncover a shocking truth, their enemy-and their own simmering passions-may destroy them and everything they cherish.
Mini Book Review: Delightfully sinful read full of beautiful strong women and handsome rogues. The perfect read for a day at the beach, a cold Canadian night or just while sitting in your office and reading it instead of doing your boring job -- not mine of course ; ) The characters were intriguing and not stereotypical like in many novels of this genre. Lady Alessandra and Jack have an intense chemistry, but there are also many light moments between them. Also Lady Alessandra's daughter is a delightful character and would have liked more scenes with her. The story flows nicely and it keeps you interested. I was quite ticked off one day that my bus was on time and had to put the book down. I look forward to picking up more books in Cara Elliott's "Circle of Sin" series.
I won this from a blog (sorry cannot find in my notes anywhere, what blog I won it from) and didn't HAVE to review it, I just felt like it -- so there.
