To Taste Temptation (The Legend of the Four Soldiers) by Elizabeth Hoyt

From the back of the book:

Lady Emeline Gordon is the model of sophistication in London’s elite social circles, always fashionable and flawlessly appropriate. As such, she is the perfect chaperone for Rebecca, the young sister of a successful Boston businessman and former Colonial soldier.

Samuel Hartley may be wealthy, but his manners are as uncivilized as the American wilderness he was raised in. Who wears moccasins to a grand ball? His arrogant disregard for propriety infuriates Emeline, even as his boldness excites her.

But beneath Samuel’s rakish manner, he is haunted by tragedy. He has come to London to settle a score, not to fall in love. And as desperately as Emeline longs to feel this shameless man’s hands upon her, to taste those same lips he uses to tease her, she must restrain herself. She is not free. But some things are beyond a lady’s control…

This book is the first in a new series by a great historical romance author. Those who loved The Serpent Prince, The Leopard Prince, and The Raven Prince will love To Taste Temptation. Each chapter starts with an excerpt from a fairy tale much like the “Prince” books did. I think that the additional story to follow adds to the book in a good way.

The chemistry between Lady Emeline and Samuel Hartley is electric. You can really feel her internal struggle of not wanting to love someone from a lower class and her inability to resist him.

I cannot wait for the next book in the series, To Seduce A Sinner (The Legend of the Four Soldiers), that comes out in November 2008.
