Seduced by His Touch
The Byrons of Braebourne #2

Tracy Anne Warren
Historical Romance
Published in 2009

H/h - Lord Jack Byron/Grace Danvers
Setting: London, 1809.

Read in Feb, 2011.

My rating: 4 out of 5


                                                            [spoiler alert]

Well, Jack is beginning to sound like Tony (including the mistress scene, grrr!), so have to see what he's got for me and I don't mean the obvious ... ahemm

Grace, well, she has to show more spirit and fire, as she isn't 17 but a 25 yrs old. So far I like her but not exactly impressed. Read 4 chps so its far too early to say anything else and the rating is quite good.

PS: There's a mention of Tony and Rafe sometimes later in the book and Tony, Adam, Jack are from the same circle ... peas from the same pod ... Rakehell of the first water that is!
***************

Well, I like Grace. Poor girl, Jack's simply wreacking havoc on her, both physically (read "sexually") and emotionally. So, when she found out about his debts and settlements with her father, although at first I thought she should kick him outta her bed, later on I had to agree with her ways. Why not have the fun, since they're already married? I mean Jack is REALLY good there, the only thing he is good for so far in my eyes (if I leave the lying and deception behind!). And then they did just that (and man, what a honeymoon!). Initially I would've said, "Hold on girl, give him his comeuppance...". But I guess her way is good as well. I can so understand her standing, loving a man who doesn't deserve that kinda love and devotion. I really feel for her. I'm waiting to see what happens next now that they've returned from their honeymoon.

I hope Jack eats his words. Man, apart from sex, he pisses me off sometimes so much, I wanna break something, preferably on his head! Grrr! His thought: "I get tired of all my lovers so why should Grace be any different? ... Sadly, she wont be ... Let's enjoy while it lasts ..." blah blah blah blah ... MORON!!

Really, have to admit that TAW writes hot hot love scenes and sexual tension between the characters. Her books would be 5 stars if it played out just like that in other areas, too.
**************

Well, what can I say? I've thought of many things while finishing the book but have to say, Jack did make me cry in the end. I mean, seeing what an idiot he was throughout the book, have to admit that's a big feat! I LOVED that speech to Grace where he says he's going to fight for her (and her love) if it takes the rest of his life. He stayed with her when he heard she was pregnant, he was faithful and celibate when she was sick ... Big feat indeed! Even Grace was amazed! Gotta say he improved (to take it by heart to prove himself and his love to an indifferent Grace) and even if it was a gamble, he impressed me as well. I did see vulnerabilities in him, emotional ones, that given to his thick head ahemm, I didn't expect him to feel. Funny, huh?

Grace, hmm, she coped well enough given the fact that she saw him kissing his ex-mistress. Here Jack didn't really initiate the kiss but was kissing back just to see if his new found feeling for Grace was real or not and man, I wanted to strangle him! I thought she should've thrown those shoes to his face instead of the closed door! He deserved no less. I don't blame her a bit for not trusting him, even when he confessed he loved her. And, she did the right thing by going away IMO.

Now, I wish in between the narratives, lots of time didn't pass by ie: 3 weeks, 5 weeks, 7 weeks passed etc. TAW tends to do that and then the narrative kinda becomes lose, feels like she's jumping. Nevertheless, I liked that she used less first person monologues then her earlier books, which sometimes proved to be quite irritating. I really loved the love scenes, even the ones where they didn't talk but let their bodies talk instead. A 4 for me.

I'm a simple girl. I love to read in my spare time and do reviews the books I read. I also write, mostly songs/poems, though I'm not published. I love music and traveling. Sometimes, I wish I could live inside a book, having my own HEA. :)
