Seducing an Angel

Huxtable Quintent 4

(3)
In a time unlike any other, a family you'll never forget . . . Meet the Huxtables-three headstrong sisters and their dashing brother-each searching for love that's always a shocking indiscretion away. . . . In her magnificent new novel, New York Times bestselling author Mary Balogh sweeps us into a world of scandal and intrigue-glittering Regency England-and introduces the youngest Huxtable: Stephen, the only son. Here Stephen will risk his reputation and his heart as he enters a scandalous liaison with the infamous beauty intent on seduction. But when passion turns the tables on them both, who can say who has seduced whom?
He must be wealthy, wellborn, and want her more than he wants any other woman. Those are the conditions that must be met by the man Cassandra Belmont chooses for her lover. Marriage is out of the question for the destitute widow who stands accused of murdering her husband and must now barter her beauty in order to survive. With seduction in mind, she sets her sights on Stephen Huxtable, the irresistibly attractive Earl of Merton and London's most eligible bachelor. But Stephen's first intriguing glimpse of the mysterious, alluring Lady Paget convinces him that he has found the ideal woman to share his bed. There is only one caveat. This relationship fueled by mutual pleasure must be on his terms.
As the two warily circle each other in a sensual dance of attack and retreat, a single night of passion alters all the rules. Cassandra, whose reputation is already in tatters, is now in danger of losing the one thing she vowed never to give. And Stephen, who wants Cassandra more than he has ever wanted any woman, won't rest until she has surrendered everything-not as his mistress-but as his lover and wife. . . .

Huxtable-Series Part 4

Bewertet: Buch (Taschenbuch)

After all the female siblings in the Huxtable Family found their husbands and formed marriages that turned out love matches, it is now up to their only brother Stephen, Earl of Merton, to find a spouse, or rather to be seduced to form an alliance..... And the determined lady... After all the female siblings in the Huxtable Family found their husbands and formed marriages that turned out love matches, it is now up to their only brother Stephen, Earl of Merton, to find a spouse, or rather to be seduced to form an alliance..... And the determined lady to start a seduction is Cassandra Belmont, Lady Paget, who is rumoured to have killed her deceased husband with an axe. Officially the death has been declared an accident, but threatened with accusations of murder by her husband's oldest son Lady Paget has renounced all claims to her lawful heritage and is now in dire need of funds. So she joins a ball given by Stephen's sister without invitation but scheming to find a wealthy, wellborn gentleman to make him her protector and to become his mistress. And her lures seem to gain her just that: after the ball Stephen takes her home and remains in her bed the rest of the night ....... until she tries to strike a bargain with Stephen the next morning, which does not quite seem to work out exactly as planned and both protagonists must come to terms with their needs, wishes, and conceptions of life and maybe even change their ways of life in the end. Mary Balogh always succeeds in delivering an entertaining story with strong characters haunted by shadows of the past and a successful struggle to better their situation and find love in the end. So far all the Huxtables started their relationships in more or less strange, even funny ways and Stephen is no exception. And, of course, he, too, will end up with a love match. So it's another easy to read, amiable love story, with a problem to solve and a turn to the better. But it is not really something absolutely new or exceptional, that's why I refrained from rating it with a fifth star. (This comment refers to another edition of the book.)
