“Lorraine Heath’s books are always magic.”
—Cathy Maxwell

“[Heath’s] deftly skilled story-telling entrances and enthralls from the first page to last.”
—Karen Hawkins

Historical romance readers just can’t get enough of the Lost Lords of Pembrook. In her previous book, She Tempts the Duke, New York Times bestselling author Lorraine Heath introduced three brooding and intensely passionate brothers determined to reclaim their stolen birthright, as their righteous quest inadvertently leads each one down a separate path to true love. The story continues with Heath’s Lord of Temptation, as a dark and dangerous lord hardened by a life at sea sets his sights on one virtuous woman who, unlike so many of his conquests, would deny him what he hungers for most. When it comes to creating breathtaking love stories, irresistible rogue heroes, and heart-stopping sensuality, Lorraine Heath always delivers—and this Lord is one temptation no romance lover should resist…especially fans of Lisa Kleypas and Liz Carlyle!

    " When Lady Anne Hayworth blows into a bar one night and asks for his help to sail to visit her fiance, Lord Tristan Easton rejects her offer of monetary payment and alludes to a different sort of payment. Shocked, Anne dismisses him and tries to secure another captain only to find them all unavailable...to her. Her emotions high, she confronts Captain Jack, as Tristan is know in his shipping life now, to be told her payment will be just a kiss at his time of choosing. Thinking that she can ignore the burning attraction between them-and as she really has no other options, she agrees. They leave in the dark of night to avoid confrontation with her father and brothers and arrive at their destination quickly...with still no payment being given. Matters are attended to and they start the voyage back home and their flirtation continues but Anne has withdrawn back into herself and Tristan does all he can to have her back. Having finally broken down the last barrier of grief, they find passion and happiness together. But Tristan's heart belongs to the sea and Anne wants a life on land with her husband home to be with her and their children. And with Tristan's rough background also factoring in, how will this couple find a way to bridge their life differences and find happiness together? I really enjoyed this second installment in Lorraine Heath's The Lost Lords of Pembrook! First, I was surprised that it takes place a couple years after the first book, She Tempts the Duke. We get to see more of Mary and Sebastian and how the three brothers still have not forged a strong relationship with themselves or society. When Tristan was a boy, he was placed on a ship after almost being killed by his uncle and the resulting circumstances shaped him into the strong yet a bit bitter man he is today. No woman has tempted him to give up his mistress of the sea like Anne. Anne with her generous nature and pale, stunning looks. She quickly captures his heart but Anne is holding on to a lot of grief due to her goodbye to her fiance. And all the feelings she develops for Tristan just reenforce how cruel she thought she had been. Even though this book has no major side plot, it really is just about the growing relationship between Tristan and Anne and how to overcome the love of the sea aspect, I found myself always wanting to settle back into the story and I was disappointed when it was over! I wanted it to keep going as I was enjoying watching everything unfold so much! This is a strong romance about a couple that has had a lot of hurt and loss in their past, coming together in a way perfectly suited for them with the help of family. I am really looking forward to the youngest brothers story next as he seems to have quite a dark past to overcome. Lorraine Heath is in her element with this series and I look forward to each new book she writes with anticipation! 4 stars eARC provided by Avon via edelweiss "

    " This is Tristan's story; he is Sebastian's twin brother and when the brothers got away from their uncle, he went to sea. This story doesn't have any real suspense, action, etc. but rather is just a sweet story of two people falling into a friendship that turns into love. "

    " I liked this book much better than the first one in the series. Why? well because In the first book Tristan was the most lighthearted of the brothers and he sort of flitted in and out of Sebastians story like a butterfly. Hiding the depth of his scars from his uncle's attempt to kill off the heirs and steal their legacy and inheritance. Sebastian's story kind of plodded along until almost 1/2 way through the book but Tristian's story starts off at a perky pace and keeps that pace up throughout. Also as this is a romance book we don't have to wait too long before the central characters (Anne and Tristan) hit the sheets and hit them repeatedly. Not in a overkill sort of way but in a way that was nice and shows that yes! Regency era folks did get it on. Did lust after each other and given the history of the brothers there would be no longing glances across a room and desires that went unfilled. Tristan is still much of restless butterfly. Heading to sea because that is where he feels freest and that is where part of his unexpected journey as a youth took him when he and his brothers were forced to split up. He thinks that the seafaring life is the life for him... Until he meets Anne. Anne has lost something precious in a distant land and cannot move on until she has a cathartic "come to Jesus" with her loss. Tristan, smitten on sight is the one to take her on this cleansing journey and the one to fall in love to her almost unbeknownst to himself. Anne for her part is no silly Miss. She knows her mind and barges through the story in a very self-confident way that had me smiling. She knew her place and her duty in society but tried her best to live life on her terms and honor her familial commitments in a way that was honorable. Truly a good pairing. There are a few twists and turns in the book that keep the pathway to lasting love from getting stale and boring and a few secondary characters were pretty fun, especially Chetwyn and Hermoine. While not fully blown up as secondary characters, if this author wanted to she could do 2 quick novellas on these two that might be a hoot to read. Rafe's story is next and I quite feel my heart will break for him in his story because while the other brothers were able to get far away he was forced to exist in a workhouse and I fear his scars may be deepest of all.. a good, fast read, enjoyable and worth a look. "

    " Almost four stars! Really good though, her writing style is just so easy and readable to me. His character was annoying occasionally in terms of constantly putting her in jeopardy of scandal/not really caring but I liked it. "
