This Earl is on Fire by Vivienne Lorret (Season's Original #2) @VivLorret @Avonbooks #NewRelease #Review #Giveaway #Historical

Liam is not ready to let go of the one woman who stirs his deepest longings.

Season's Original #2
Vivienne Lorret
Releasing August 2nd, 2016
Avon Impulse

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.

Don't miss the first title in the Season's Original Series

So I officially can say that I absolutely loved THIS EARL IS ON FIRE!  Liam and Adeline were just the right amount of push and pull to keep my clinging to my kindle!  Lorret continues to prove that she is a talented story teller who brings the magic back to historical romance!

Adeline is in London with her family for her first time in society where she wants to experience exciting adventures.  The Pimms come to find a bloodied and bruised man in the doorway of their rental for the season, and they take him in and start to nurse his wounds.  From that moment, Adeline feels a certain skip in her heart....and it's denial, denial, denial from that moment on, as she never intends to marry and she will never be pitied or coddled again.  

The sweet sound of Adeline's voice is the one thing that keeps the pain at bay for Liam, and the more time they spend together, the more they banter and the more the heat flares between them.  You can literally see the sparks ignite when they are in the same room...and you will never think of porridge as sexy until you read this book!

The flow of the story is slow building, as a bit of mystery starts to build in the story, but I simply adore the way that Vivienne is able to write characters that feel so real, almost as if you are transported back in time, joining the ladies for an afternoon tea, or taking a turn about the room at one of the Dower Duchesses parties.

I can't tell you enough how much I am loving the Season's Original series, and the group of friends that we encounter throughout each title.  I loved the backstory of Liam and Adeline, two people who basically want the same things, for different reasons and they fight the feelings they have for each other at every turn.  I literally cried through the whole last few chapters! suggestion is to buy THIS EARL IS ON FIRE....and you might want to grab THE DEBUTANTE IS MINE as well....and even the Holiday Anthology, ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS A DUKE, where we get Ivy and Vale's romance, THE DUKE'S CHRISTMAS WISH.

USA Today bestselling author, VIVIENNE LORRET loves romance novels, her pink laptop, her husband, and her two sons (not necessarily in that order … but there are days). Transforming copious amounts of tea into words, she is an Avon Impulse author of works including: Tempting Mr. Weatherstone, The Wallflower Wedding Series, The Rakes of Fallow Hall Series, The Duke’s Christmas Wish, and the Season’s Original Series.
