The Danger in Tempting an Earl (At the Kingsborough Ball, #3)Publisher: Avon
ISBN: 006224518X
 Pages: 384 pages
 Genre: Romance/Historical
Buy this Book: Amazon, Nook


Lucien Marvaine never thought he was good enough for Katherine. As the younger son of an earl, he didn’t have a title or prospects. Then fate steps in and gives him a second chance, and this new Earl of Roxbury is determined to make the beautiful Kate his own . . . one touch . . . one kiss at a time.

Katherine never thought of herself as a temptress, certainly not with Lucien. Why, she’s known him almost all her life! Yet as she waltzes in Lucien’s arms at the Kingsborough Ball, she can’t help but be drawn to him. Has he always been this hard and masculine? And where did those dimples come from? Kate is not looking for a husband . . . but how can she not surrender to Lucien’s charms when love is at stake?

My Review:

Intro: The early part of the summer was plagued by an epic reading slump and now the end of the summer is being plagued by a review slump. More like writer’s block but only with reviews. I can’t even manage to get a thought down. It’s taken me all day to write this review….All day. It usually takes an hour at the most. But I persevered and I also really loved this book.

Heroine: Katherine-I liked Katherine. I did have a slight bit of trouble with her because she tends to dig her heels in but I thought she was likable. I don’t know if she is a favorite heroine of mine but I definitely did like her.

Hero: Lucien-He was the highlight of the book for me. It’s so very rare that you find a hero pining after the heroine. Or at least I don’t find it very often and when it is attempted, it isn’t done very well. But Lucien was perfect sweet and completely besotted.

Chemistry: I waver a bit on the unrequited love storyline. When it’s done well, I absolutely love it but when it’s badly done, it’s just a mish-mash of melodrama. But here it was done perfectly. You can sense Katherine and Lucien’s history together and there was a nice tinge of humor throughout the book.

Chemistry Rating:

Conclusion: I really do love Sophie Barnes’ books. They are light reads with a nice bit of humor. That’s always a nice break from the angst I usually read.
