    Stellar Series!

    The plot thickens in Bronwen Evans A Whisper of Desire, the fourth book in her stellar Disgraced Lords series. This work is so well constructed that from the start you will not be able to resist surrendering to it. A great ongoing suspense scenario from this author’s previous installments in the series, with clues and surprises galore, this was one exceptional story! As if this was not enough the taut line of sexual tension as the hero and heroine vied for control over the direction of their desire was handled superbly by Ms. Evans and makes this a must read! The sins of the father come forth and demand reconciling through their sons in this first rate work and I cannot wait to see where this series goes next! *I received this ARC via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.* *While this book can be read as a stand alone, reading the previous books in this series would enhance your overall reading experience.*

    A Whisper of Desire

    Marisa and Maitland have known each other for years - as the sister to a Libertine Scholar, Marisa has been around the stories and the men themselves for half her life. But, she never expects to find herself waking up in bed next to one of them - naked - and obviously compromised in the eyes of the ton even though nothing happened. But the villainess has struck again, and Maitland and Marisa find themselves wed to save her reputation.This is where I get just a tad tired of the whole style of "she wants love, but he's determined not to." I hope it gets change up a bit more in the future. Marisa and Maitland are far from an ideal pair. Marisa is determined to find love in marriage and Maitland is determined to avoid it at all costs - he considers passion to be a curse. It may look like the villianess has finally struck a blow to the Libertine Scholars. But Marisa is no coward. She will find a way to bring some passion and romance to her marriage - but when she finally does - well, things get pretty bad. I just about cried several times in this one. There is tragedy, secrets, and a great loss that Marisa and Maitland will have to overcome before they will ever be happy. This was the most "real" book of the series so far. Things didn't all miraculously become better and all the hurt doesn't just disappear. But because of this, the characters are going to stay with me for a long, long time. I can't wait to see them in future books in the series.

    Love it!

    A Whisper Of Desire by Bronwen Evans is a fantastic historical romance. Ms Evans has packed this book with lovable characters, drama, sizzle and humor. Marisa and Maitland's story is fast paced and the book is a well written, smooth read. I loved this book and can't wait for my next book by Bronwen Evans. A Whisper Of Desire is book 4 of The Disgraced Lords Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

    Found naked together in bed

    Lady Marisa Hawkestone and Maitland Spencer, Duke of Lyttleton, wake up in bed together, naked, with no memory of the night before or how the got there after presumably having been drugged by an enemy of the Duke's longtime circle of friends. Although nothing untoward occurred, the ensuing scandal forces the two to wed. Despite finding tremendous passion in each other's arms, Maitland holds back in the light of day and for several following nights, leaving Marisa bewildered, hurt and a little angry. What happened in Maitland's past that makes him feel he must keep himself so tightly controlled? Will Marisa be able to penetrate his defenses and make him open up to her before their marriage is damaged beyond repair? Will they learn who wishes to harm them in such a public way before the menace moves on to causing physical harm? Can Maitland keep Marisa safe from both the outside threat and from his own dark side? This novel features the typical Regency romance plot in which two people who don't know each other well are forced to marry and must overcome communication barriers to learn to love each other, usually not realizing the depth of their true feelings until one or the other is in grave danger. However, this book is unique in that it also touches on the dark underbelly of London in that era, including topics such as sexual abuse, venereal disease, and child prostitution. These harsh realities are jarring when juxtaposed against absurdity of some of the elements of the plot, such as the very idea that two people already alert against possible attack could be drugged and placed in a chamber with their clothes taken, without a single person (not even the woman's brother or a single servant) seeing a thing. In addition, after all the build up to the finale, the conclusion of the book was most unsatisfying. While I understand the goal is to promote sales of the next book, some kind of mini-resolution or intermediate step would have been more gratifying. Still, the fast pace of the action and the well-drawn, fully-developed main characters made this an enjoyable read.

    Yes this book has it all. Great characters, romance, sensuality, humour and pain. It will take you on a thrilling ride and you will hate it when it is over. Loved it!
