Navegando por la tentación
Tres jóvenes herederos encerrados por un despiadado tío escaparon en dirección al mar, a las calles o a guerras lejanas, esperando el día en que pudieran regresar y reclamar sus derechos de herencia.
Érase una vez un noble, lord Tristan Easton, convertido en Crimson Jack, un corsario que no rendía cuentas ante nadie y cuyo único amor era el mar. Pero todo eso cambió cuando...more
When I first started it felt formulaic. Girl needs ship, hero is captain of ship, forced proximity and voila.
I was quite sceptical of the speed of how it all unfolded.
But THEN….. it got more layers - quite delicious, emotional and complex ones. Plus a rather believable obstacle to a happy ending.
So once again I was impressed by Lorraine Heath, and her Lost Lord series.

"He skimmed his fingers along her throat, felt the fluttering of her pulse against his skin. “And I’m still safe. I’m a blackguard to the core. I’ve never claimed otherwise. All I want from you is passion and pleasure. To give. To receive. You don’t want me for a husband any more than I want you for a wife. But you can’t deny there is an attraction between us, like the moon to the tides.”
“And which am I?” she asked on a breathy sigh. Before he could respond, she answered, “The mo ...more
The making of Lord Tristan Easton aka Crimson Jack can bear a resemblance to adding:
• A sound segment of Billy Blade’s rebellious courage Lady of Desire
• A piece of the dashing libertine and easily bored Viscount Sebastian
St. Vincent Devil in Winter
• A large segment of the love and tender and witty humor of Lord Bramwell Johns Always a Scoundrel
• A portion of the nefarious single minded charisma of the Marquis of St. Aubyn London's Perfect Scoundrel
• A ...more
In the previous book, "She Tempts the Duke", Tristan Easton is very appealing. He's the rakish twin brother of the disfigured hero of that book and he was definitely intriguing. Unfortunately, I felt very disconnected from him as a romantic lead in this book and I'm still trying to figure out why.
He's cynical ...more

BR with Aly!!
Lord Tristan Easton is the scoundrel among the brothers. Forced to leave his life as the second son of a duke and live in the seas as a pirate he has become a man no one messes with. He shows only his jovial face and pretends to be an unthinking man-whore in order to protect himself from coming too close to anyone since his only permanent love and home has become the sea. All this though is about to change the minute Lady Anne Heyworth steps into his life.
Anne was once ...more

The narration seriously detracted from my enjoyment of Lord of Temptation and probably the reason why I'm rounding down. The narrator's male voices were bad and indistinct, she used inappropriate accents and imbued the narration with a terrible melancholy. Everything and everything seem sooo saaaad!!!
Anne has been grieving her dead fiancee for several years and to find some closure, she decides to journey to the place he died. Her father refuses her wish but Anne takes matters on h ...more
We met Tristan Easton, one of the lost lords of Pembrook, in the first novel of this series with his two brothers. He is the twin of the Duke of Keswick, but because no scars align his face, the better looking one. In the first book, he seems the type to deflect emotions with humor and sarcasm and he was always very playful, which made me excited to read his book! But for some reason, I just didn't connect to him in this one. I found myself skimming through the ending bits and I don't car ...more
It's really a shame to give this such a low rating because Lorraine Heath is in my top five romance authors and she rarely dissapoints. This isn't a bad book, it's just one of those dime a dozen forgettable ones.
Which shouldn't have been the case. Tristan's back story, given in the far superior Waking With the Duke, is positively Shakespearean. His Richard the Third-esque Uncle tries to murder him and his two brothers for the fortune and title. Runaways at fourteen, Tristan i ...more
Anne has hired Captain Crimson Jack/Triston to take her to Scutari were her fiancé Water has been fighting the Crimean War. She needs to ask his forgiveness for an argument they had before he left for the war. Triston is ...more
Another winner from Lorraine Heath.
I can't think of any words to describe how much I love this book.
This story is beautiful.
“But you can’t deny there is an attraction between us, like the moon to the tides.”
“And which am I?” she asked on a breathy sigh.
Before he could respond, she answered,
“The moon, of course. I stay put in London Society while you come and go where the sea takes you.”
“Yet here I am, with you pulling me toward you. Let me come nearer, Anne.” ...more
How I imagine Lord Tristan Easton/Captain Crimson Jack…
Once Lord Tristan Easton, he is now the roguish, sexy, witty, adventure-loving Captain Crimson Jack but he still bears the emotional scars of leaving Pembrook all those years ago.
From the moment he’d galloped away from Pembrook, he’d sworn that he would never complain, whine, or cry about the unfairness of life. He’d buried deep ...more
Lorraine Heath is one of my go-to HR authors, and although I did not love the first books in this trilogy, She Tempts the Duke, I was excited to receive an ARC of this book from Edelweiss.
First, a quick update on the s ...more
If you are a fan of the The Lost Lords of Pembrook series then you will like the second book. It has the overall, look and feel of the first one.
I’m not too fond of the, already engaged storyline, but yet we have it again. It’s slightly different, but still apparent.
You can read the books out of order, but I feel like so much character development was created in the first book, you should read them in order. I do like the second book slightly more than the first, only because the already ...more

Lorraine Heath has always had a soft spot for emotional love stories. No doubt because growing up, watching movies with her mom, she was taught that the best movies "won't half make you cry."
She is the daughter of a British beauty (her mom won second place in a beauty contest sponsored by Max Factor ...more
