She won’t be tamed.
A fiery, unconventional Scot, Adaira Ferguson wears breeches, swears, and has no more desire to marry than she does to follow society’s dictates of appropriate behavior. She trusts no man with the secret she desperately protects.
He can’t forget.
Haunted by his past, Roark, The Earl of Clarendon, rigidly adheres to propriety, holding himself and those around him to the highest standards, no matter the cost. Betrayed once, he’s guarded and leery of all women.
Mistaking Roark for a known spy, Adaira imprisons him. Infuriated, he vows vengeance. Realizing her error, she’s appalled and releases him, but he’s not satisfied with his freedom. Roark is determined to transform Adaira from an ill-mannered hoyden to a lady of refinement.
He succeeds only to discover, he preferred the free-spirited Scottish lass who first captured his heart.
“The Earl’s Enticement” by Collette Cameron
Collette Cameron is an illustrious author of 20 compelling books dealing with the themes of love, betray, regency in Scotland etc. The novels are full of old historical intrigues, perplexing love stories and twists of the plot. It is extremely interesting to plunge into the 1820-30s where historical events intervene with personal problems and family mishaps.
The author is a happy mom of three, a wise and beloved wife as well as a successful woman that inspires women of all ages around the world with her gripping books.
Despite the fact that “The Earl’s Enticement” is triggered by historical facts, the book is rich with humorous allusions and inspiring quotes, so do not hesitate to spend your free time devoting yourself to this book. Many of her fans consider this book to be the best one in her career! Don’s miss the chance to indulge in getting to know it better!
In fact, the main heroes (Adaira Ferguson and Roark Marquardt) are already introduced in one of the previous books, namely “Highlander’s Hope”. The whole story unwinds just before the end of “Highlander’s Hope”, so it would be also useful to read this masterpiece as well! At times, it seems that Adaira Ferguson is the uncommonest lady in the whole Scotland. She wears breeches, swears and does not trust men the same as Roark. Roark is the super intelligent earl that was once betrayed and does not wish to be betrayed one more time that is why he seems to be too cold and aloof. The fates of the two connect when Adaira imprisons the earl by mistake (she thinks he wants to harm her brother’s wife) not knowing that Roark is afraid of small dark rooms because of some psychological trauma in the childhood, but then, Adaira gives him freedom after realizing her failure. Such freedom does not satisfy the hero that wishes to turn Adaira into an honorable, intelligent lady of refinement. The story obtains humorous tones when Adaira’s family comes to Roark’s place where Adaira ia taught fine manners but cannot do without a blunder even one day!
The two characters are a far cry from each other, they are complete extremes! Nevertheless, Roark understands that he likes Adaira the way she is, her temper, emotions and behavior! But this is not a sweet novel deprived of evil complots! Roark’s malicious brother and a neighbor lady have their own plans that do not chime with Adaira and Roark’s ones!
To summarize, the story is compelling and full of intriguing moments that will not leave you indifferent! Worth reading!
