Season's Original #2

Blurb

The sheltered daughter of a country baron, Miss Adeline Pimm comes to London looking for adventure… and finds it in the form of a bloody, unconscious man slumped in the doorway of her family's rented townhouse. Though his identity is a mystery, Adeline is inexplicably drawn to the handsome, injured man and vows to nurse him back to health.

Liam Cavanaugh, the scandalous Earl of Wolford, is startled when he awakens in an unfamiliar bed, wrapped in bandages that hinder his eyesight, with no memory of why he was beaten half to death. Although he can't see the witty young woman who tends to his wounds, her alluring voice--and a single stolen kiss from her soft lips--help soothe his pain. But when he is fully healed, Liam is not ready to let go of the one woman who stirs his deepest longings.

Liam will do whatever it takes to see Adeline again, even if it means giving up his rakish ways. But his disreputable past is not so easily forgotten and his secrets are far more dangerous than he-or Adeline-ever imagined. 

My Thoughts:

What a marvel! Seriously, I'm totally in love with Liam and Adeline. Absolute perfection. I mean I laughed, cried, excited, basically a wreck. Vivienne Lorret wrecked me with The Earl is on Fire. Talk about being a hot mess. I don't know where to beginning, because it was that good. Granted it did take me a little while to read this story, but my home is in chaos. However, this book is like a Pringle once you start you can't stop. Can I say I love, love, love Adeline. She's has be the best heroine. I mean she puts Liam in his place a couple times, especially when he accuses her of trying to trap into marriage. She basically tells him I'm no prize catch, so why would I trap you. There are a couple of times Liam is flabbergasted by her bluntness. Of course, he tries to go back to his life, but he  just can't seem to get Adeline out of his mind. Oh Liam. He's so smart and handsome, but he gets all dumb when he's with Adeline. 

Adeline truly makes the story. She basically comes to London to have an adventure and prove to her family she can do things. They have a hard time, because of her disability. Honestly, it wasn't a big deal, and she wanted to be able to do things that a normal young woman would do. She has a grand adventure with the help of Liam. 

Anyway. Did I mention I loved The Earl is on Fire, yes, okay. Vivienne does an amazing job with her characters. She truly made a remarkable young woman to life on the pages in this story who is able to show an earl that he is lovable. In search of an adventure, you might give The Earl is on Fire a try.

Excerpt:

“However, perhaps if my pillow were fluffed.”
She looked at him as if he were teasing her, but played along nonetheless, chafing her hands together. “I must have an innate talent for pillow fluffing.”
If one could possess a talent for such a thing, she certainly did not. Not that he would tell her. Because if he did, he already knew the result. She would leave his side, and he would lose the relief—or whatever this was—he found in her presence. And he had never been one to deny himself necessary comforts.
Then, as she had done before, she leaned over him. Her hands went to either side of his face, pressing into the pillow, the inviting plumpness of her breasts resting on his chest. Enjoying the moment, he closed his eyes and drew in a deep breath that hinted at pear blossoms.
She went still. “Why are your hands at my waist?”
Were they? He squeezed his hands and found that, yes, they most definitely were. He also discovered that the satin gown was warm from the heat of her body and fine enough that there was little barrier between his hands and the slender curve of her waist and the slight flare of her hips.
“I’m merely aiding in your efforts by offering stability,” he said, by way of an excuse. Of course, he hadn’t intended to touch her—gentleman’s daughter and all that. Given his pleasure-seeking nature, however, he wasn’t entirely surprised by his wayward hands. Perhaps he should think about removing them before he found them cupped around her breasts. Inadvertently, of course.
“Afraid that I will crush you?” she said with a laugh against his lips. “Well, do not worry, because I have finished. Your pillow is sufficiently plump.”
More than. And lumpy as well, but he did not mind in the least. Especially when he felt her lips against his cheek.
“Thank you, Wolford. I had a delightful evening.”
In the next instant, he didn’t know what came over him. Suddenly, he found his hand at her nape, pulling her mouth to his.
