Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
My site's name seems a bit more SCANDALOUS today considering our featured title, but all blushing aside, this NEW Entangled Amara title is FAB-U-LOUS! So, Historical Romance fans, lend me your ears, find a comfy spot to enjoy your bookish spoils, and get ready to INDULGE as we welcome TLC Book Tours with today's book of choice...
About the book....
As owner of the most scandalous club in London, the last thing the notorious Marquess of Roth wants is a wife. Keeping up his false reputation as a rake brings in the clients with the deepest pockets; money he needs to fund a noble cause. Even though everything inside tells him not to leave his beautiful, innocent wife behind at his country estate…he must.
But three years later, tired of her scoundrel of a husband headlining the gossip rags, Lady Isobel Vance decides enough is enough. She is no longer a fragile kitten, but as the anonymous author of a women’s sexual advice column, she’s now a roaring tigress…and she can use her claws.
Isobel decides to go to him in London, channeling her powers of seduction to make him beg to take her back. But she didn’t expect her marauding marquess to be equally hard to resist. Now the game is on to see who will give in to the other first, with both sides determined like hell to win.
Each book in the Regency Rogues series is STANDALONE:
* The Beast of Beswick
* The Rakehell of Roth
My dear readers, please take a moment to compose yourselves because once you've started THIS PARTICULAR "dance"...you won't want to stop 'til you've reached book's end!
Isobel and Winter...an unusual couple from the start, though not by looks. He, a notorious rake though heir to his family's title and then some, and she, a beauty without a season desperately trying to escape an entirely unwanted match. It looked good on paper, it certainly felt good on their wedding night, but that is where the potential fairytale ends. He left her for three years with barely a correspondence, which even when received was not directly from him, while building up his business and carefully courting his reputation as a notorious rake. She having caught wind of these affairs some time ago has finally reached a boiling point...and with the help of some good friends, and a boost of confidence from Lady Darcy herself, she's finally ready to call his hand in the ultimate game of life; LOVE.
Oh. My. Word.
The tension between these two leaves almost everything feeling like an innuendo, having been made intentionally or not. You could literally start fires with the looks that pass, and make bets on how fast the flames would spread if they ever truly get over, around, or through the walls they both have around their hearts. I was routing for Isobel as I truly felt for her. She entered the marriage thinking one thing, only to be disillusioned, but she wasn't giving up without a fight! Still...I was also behind Roth because, well...I mean, he's who he is with the brains and the brawn, and yet he still can't help but get it wrong with where he places blame. True, it'd help if he listened to some much overly needed explanations that were trying to be given to him concerning the whole situation, but I get it...his heart was hurt and he wasn't risking it again. Or at least, he THOUGHT he wasn't...because as we all know, the heart wants what it wants!
So, if you're a Historical Fiction fan, love witty banter, and don't mind the serious blush factor here, this is SO the book for you! I mean, I enjoyed it immensely...and though I might not read ALL the passages aloud in public (oh I could see the looks now! Talk about the talk of the ton!), I definitely shared some private chuckles, gasps, and moments right alongside Clarissa and Isobel.
