    A Romantic Adventure!

    I am an avid historical romance reader, and I adore Liz Carlyle's books. You may remember Phaedra and Mr. Kemble from her earlier books. Phaedra is the half sister of Stefan, who married Xanthia at the beginning of the series. The plot is exciting and keeps moving at a rapid pace - no huge twists and turns here, but adventurous all the same. A great read that you will thoroughly enjoy!

    I Also Recommend:

    "Like all good stories, Tempted All Night delivers."

    I like that Phaedra is what Tristan needs in a turbulent time of his life, and that Tristan is what Phaedra needs to understand and accept herself for what she is. I like that Tristan feels regret for his wicked past as it relates to Phaedra, which we don't see a lot of heroes doing. I like that Phaedra also meets and strikes up a friendship with Zoe Armstrong, a woman as lively and bad as Phaedra is quiet and good, yet Zoe is exactly what Phaedra needs in her life to draw her out of her shell, to live life, so to speak. Most of all, I like a good story, and Tempted All Night certainly delivers. Reviewed by Silver for The Raving Readers

    Tristan and Phaedra: A Sweet And Spicy Action Packed Love Story

    I love Liz Carlyle's writing, her books are almost always excellent, top notch reads. She tackles some darker issues in Tempted All Night with storytelling skill that comes from a real understanding of what makes people tick. She reveals Tristan and Phae's weaknesses and soft spots, their strengths, their pasts and secrets, and shows us how these two off-beat characters are meant for one another, right down to a mutual desire (though it is a revelation to the heroine) for adventurous "bed play", (as the hero calls it), which is very tenderly handled by Carlyle.

    The current trend in romance novels of introducing characters for the "next book in the series", bringing in people from past romance's, and done so clumsily by other authors, is one of the best parts of Liz Carlyle's books. In Tempted All Night perennial secondary character, antiques proprietor and man-of-many-skills George Kemble reappears, as well as dark and handsome Max de Rohan (hero from No True Gentleman), and Zoe Armstrong (secondary character from Carlyle's very first book) charmingly reappearing here, poised and ready for her turn for a passionate happily ever after in the near future, a story I would love to see and gladly read. I hope this little community of characters never ends.

    Tempted All Night by Liz Carlyle

    Liz Carlyle is one my must-buy historical authors. She writes strong characters and interesting plots and her brand new release "Tempted All Night" is another good read for me.<BR/><BR/>Phaedra should be married. She's pretty, she's got a great dowry, and her brother is a Lord. But Phaedra also suffered an almost unspeakable loss when she was very young. That experience, and its repercussions, have resulted in her determination to never marry. She spends her time trying to be unobtrusive and unnoticed. Until the younger sister of her maid disappears, leaving behind a young child. Phaedra reluctantly journeys to London with her family, but not for ton entertainments. Her mission is to find the missing mother...but what Phaedra finds isn't just a missing woman, but a case of murder and espionage. And the man who's trying to help her may be the one to change her mind about marriage.<BR/><BR/>Tristan's father is the Earl of Talbot and his mother was a beautiful Mediterranean peasant his father fell in love with, giving up his chances for high office with the marriage. The result was Tristan, too dark to look entirely English, but undoubtedly the Earl's heir. With little acceptance from his family and his mother gone, Tristan went off to serve as a mercenary and spy-for-hire...something that (intentionally) irritates his father who runs the Foreign Office at Whitehall. But his father is on his deathbed and Tristan can't refuse what may be his last investigate the death of a Russian who may be mixed up with a spy. It doesn't take Tristan long to meet Phaedra, and he is drawn to her almost in spite of himself. Events around Tristan and Phaedra become more and more dangerous, and so does their desire.<BR/><BR/>Two complex and intriguing characters, with messy pasts and dubious futures struggle to understand and recognize love. Each is afraid to care but can't seem to resist the traits of the other. The mystery wasn't too bad either, even though we're told right off who the bad guys are, it still plays out well. The real focus is always the growing closeness and caring between the hero and heroine. There are brief appearances by characters from previous books, but this novel stands on its own. "Tempted All Night" is another solid historical from Liz Carlyle.
