Today, I bring you another wonderful Historical Romance, that I am in love with. "To Tempt The Devil" by C.J. Archer, is a different type of historical romance. It has murder, false accusation, romance, a head strong heroine, and a brooding leading man. Which, in my book makes historical romances the best.
Here is the summary taken straight from Goodreads....
"For years, Rafe Fletcher wandered the world, an assassin-for-hire and one of Europe's most feared swordsmen. It's a fitting life for a man who once beat his own brutish stepfather half to death, one of many sins for which he hopes to atone upon his return to London. Yet redemption proves elusive when he reunites with Lizzy Croft. A child when Rafe left, Lizzy remembers her dear friend's brooding brother all too well. And though dismayed to now find herself drawn to his dark good looks, she hasn't forgotten how dangerous he can be. She dare not trust him ? until the Master of Revels is murdered and Lizzy becomes the prime suspect. Suddenly Rafe is the only man she can trust, the only man who can protect her as they race to unmask the true killer. As her heart begins to thaw to the mysterious rogue, Lizzy wonders if loving him is the greatest risk of all?"
The summary alone should kind of peak your interest, I know it did mine. Although, I have definitely gone through an historical romance phase, but what reader hasn't gone through a phase. This is definitely a one and only type of historical romance. It has laughter, intrigue, and falling in love with a dark, handsome rogue...lol. If your in the mood for a nice historical romance than give this book a chance and you could probably finish this in a day or two. So, it is a very good, page turning read and it will have you hooked with the first page.
Till Next Time,
