The Temptation of Your Touch
Maximillian Burke prides himself on being the man every mother wants her daughter to marry, but after his scoundrel brother steals his bride, Max decides there’s more satisfaction in being a rogue than a gentleman. He flees London for lonely Cadgwyck Manor, and though the tumbledown estate comes complete with a ghost, it’s Max’s no-nonsense housekeeper who haunts his dreams.
Prim and proper Anne Spencer could do without a new master, especially one as gorgeous and temperamental as the Earl of Dravenwood. Even as she schemes to be rid of him, she is irresistibly drawn into his muscular embrace. But when Max vows to solve the mystery of the White Lady of Cadgwyck, he risks both their hearts and tempts them to surrender to a pleasure as delicious as it is dangerous.
*Starred Review* Maximillian Burke, Earl of Dravenwood, has been a true gentleman and model citizen most of his life. But when his brother steals the woman he loves, Max turns into one of the most notorious rogues in London. He then resigns as chair of the Court of Directors of the East India Company, much to his father’s dismay, and heads to the far outreaches of the family holdings, Cadgwyck Manor. Neither Annie Spencer nor the other residents there want a “master” in the house. They’re doing quite well on their own, thank you. To discourage noblemen who intend to take possession of the estate, Annie and the rest of the meager staff do their best to make the place as uninviting as possible, even creating a dreadful specter, the White Lady of Cadgwyck, that makes potential “masters” flee in horror. But Annie’s best, spookiest efforts fail to make an impression on the jaded Max. This is quintessential Medeiros (The Pleasure of Your Kiss, 2011), who, as readers know well from her impressive body of work, never fails to entertain. --Shelley Mosley --This text refers to the Library Binding edition. “Engaging characters, a tight, well-drawn plot that is complex and captivating, and an overall tone that manages to be both lighthearted and emotionally lush make this a sweet, fun and satisfying read.” (Kirkus)"This is quintessential Medeiros, who, as readers know well from her impressive body of work, never fails to entertain."
