She Sought Revenge But Discovered Desire. On a quest to avenge her sister's death, Eleanor Watkins never expected to fall for the man following her through pleasure gardens and into ballrooms. But soon nothing can keep her from the arms of the sinfully attractive scoundrel, not even the dangerous secrets she keeps. Strong, compassionate, and utterly irresistible, James is all she desires. But can she trust him enough to let herself succumb to all the pleasures that midnight allows? James Swindler has worked hard to atone for his unsavory past. He is now as at home in London's glittering salons as he is in the roughest streets. But when the inspector is tasked with keeping watch on a mysterious lady suspected of nefarious deeds, he is determined to use his skills at seduction to lure Eleanor into revealing her plans. Instead, he is the one seduced, turning away from everything he holds dear in order to protect her—no matter the cost to his heart.

When her sister goes into London for the season with hopes and dreams of finding a husband and a more secure future for her family, but comes back to them broken in body and spirit. After her death, Eleanor looks throu...
If I continue reading historicals where the heroine gives her virginity without a second thought to her virtue or an unwanted pregnancy, I might have to give up on the genre. And I might have to give up Lorraine Heath latest releases anyway, if I read one more sticky, sweet story with a bit of drama...
I love a good story twist that can outsmart the reader, and this one had it. Just when I thought this was going to be yet another oh-so-boring-typical regency romance, Lorraine Heath pulls out a pretty solid storyline twist that kept me entertained and glued to the book up to the end. This is Jame...
