Favorite Quote: “I ache. I want. I remember every touch, every kiss, and want more.”
Lady Olympia Wherlocke has never made a promise she couldn’t…wouldn’t keep, so when a young girl comes to her in desperation, Olympia promises to do anything and everything to help her. Lady Agatha Mallam’s mother is trying to sell her into marriage to a much older man who is rumored to have sadistic tendencies and an unfortunate incurable ailment. Only her brother, the Earl, has the power to stop their mother but he has buried himself in the country and refuses to answer her letters.
Lord Brant Mallam has spent the last few years drowning his grief in sex and spirits over his beloved fiancée’s death. When Lady Olympia comes sweeping into his home, relaying his mother’s nefarious plans, Brant knows the time has finally come to put an end to his mother’s schemes once and for all.
As Olympia and Brant work towards repairing Brant’s reputation and helping Agatha, they ferret out more of his mother’s schemes and soon discover the true nature of her plans. Plans that spell disaster and possible death for them all.
If He’s Tempted is the fifth installment of Ms. Howell’s Wherlocke series. A dark and gritty historical romance that mixes a batch of love, humor, revenge, and redemption into a volatile potent. Action and suspense go hand in hand as two damaged yet repairable people come together to stop a mad women from further ruining their lives and the lives of those they love. I would like to point out this can be read as a stand alone and you do not have to read the others in order to appreciate this story.
