The icy winds howled around him, the snow fell gently from the heavens, but he did not stir. He allowed no memories of happier times to intrude. He refused to anticipate it.

Fairytales often feature evil step-sisters, but rarely evil step-brothers. The latter are more common in romance novels— Prisoner of my Desire and A Kingdom of Dreams come to mind—especially in historical romance.
However, surprising no one but himself, as the bidding begins, Rafe speaks up. The challenge had been spoken, and he never recanted his statements. Standing, he tugged on his black brocade waistcoat that suddenly felt far too tight. Wortham has assured us that she is pure. Have I made myself clear? That night Rafe does. He promised Father that he would see that I was well taken care of. At least I have no wife on the side, which is more than I can say for a few of the gents who were in attendance last night.
Evelyn is shocked and runs out into the cold, wet night. I almost quit reading at this point. I disliked the premise, I disliked Evelyn, I disliked Rafe.
The Lost Lords of Pembrook series tells the stories of three brothers who, years ago when their uncle murdered their father, were forced to run away. They spent ten years apart, each in rather horrific circumstances but have now returned to London and claimed their birthright.
The other two brothers, Sebastian and Tristan, have found happiness and their families are close but Rafe has kept to himself and rarely even speaks with his brothers. The Lord of Wicked Intentions did not turn out to be a terrible book.
Nor is it a good book. Heath spends most of the book rehabilitating Rafe. From the moment Evelyn moves into his house, he begins to shed his emotional and psychological barriers.
And it is he who works on himself. He waits more than just a few days to do so. He desires Evelyn from the first night he sees her and that never changes.
Part of his motivation for becoming a more open, connected person is to better seduce Evelyn. He is well on the way to becoming a changed man before he falls in love with Evelyn which I liked. She is a very typical historical heroine: a virgin who becomes a sensual lover overnight, a woman who loves a man she thinks will never love or marry her, a lady who is kind to everyone no matter their background.
Heath does write sex and sexual tension well. This is one of these books I suspect gets many of the historical details of the time wrong but for me there was nothing so glaring that it took me out of the story.
It is the best of the three and does a nice job of wrapping up the stories of the lost lords. I loved romances when, back in the mid 70's, in junior high, I read every Barbara Cartland novel I could check out from the library. Then, thanks to a savvy babysitter, I got my hands on the hot stuff.
I abandoned romance when I went to college and didn't pick one up again until when I got my first Kindle. I like my books to have sizzle, wit, and plots that make sense.
When not reading or writing about reading, or wishing I could rule the world, I'm meddling in the lives of my kids--I have four, ages 17 to , managing my husband's practice, doing bossy volunteer work, and hanging out with Dr. In an age and time of rampant sexual ignorance, it boggles my mind to think of these women seemingly becoming comfortable with and expert in all manner of sex, oral, vaginal and otherwise.
I also thought it was the best of the three books, so I would have graded it a bit higher. When confronted with his actions, he came across as too weak. I just listened to this one as an audiobook yesterday and liked it a lot more than you did, but I probably like the trope better.
And yum. I liked the book a lot. Faye Adele is fabulous. We do not purchase all the books we review here. Some we receive from the authors, some we receive from the publisher, and some we receive through a third party service like Net Galley.
