Overview

She came to betray him...
No one could have known the truth: that the beauty who swept into the elegant ballroom was a pirate queen with a treacherous plan to save herself from execution by identifying an infamous privateer attending the ball in disguise. Only Maureen Hawthorne could expose the double life of Julien d'Artiers, the toast of the ton. After all, she was his wife...

But he caught her heart unawares...
Julien was stunned when he beheld the love of his life, the wife he'd presumed dead. But here she was, her turquoise eyes blazing across a crowded ballroom, a woman determined to bring about his complete ruin. She blamed him for her father's death, swore to see him hang. But he took her into his arms and made her dance instead, tormenting her with memories of the passion they'd once shared, determined to make her love him again... willing to do anything to keep from losing her again.

Editorial Reviews

Harriet Klausner
Boyle's latest tale, Brazen Temptress, lives up to the author's reputation as the story line never lets up until the climax. The lead protagonists are a wonderful duo. Julian will heat readers well beyond the boiling point while the effect of love leaves both of them in jeopardy. Ms. Boyle provides regency fans with a wonderful reading experience.
Staff Reviewer
A captivating melange of intrigue, suspense and romance makes this series an increasing delight.
Suan Wilson
This rip-roaring adventure is told very effectively with flashbacks. The deceptions are peeled away, revealing one surprise after another. Brazen Temptress is a superb read following the other Brazen entries by Ms. Boyle.

MY OH MY!! I can't get over what a great series this is. I bought the bundle, which is $3.99 for 3 books, where if you buy them individually, they are $3.99 apiece. Thanks for offering such a deal because this is how I found a new author to me. I read a review that said, this wasn't a favorite, but I beg to differ. Granted it is so different from the first two, those being about Spies, but this is about Pirates, and has as much suspense, intrigue and love, that it was also a favorite. My heart just ached for Julien. The author, really made you feel his pain. I really felt a kinship with this couple. The love making, was tasteful and not throughout the whole book. There was a major twist, that I didn't see coming. I like that the author included an Epilogue, but at the beginning, I wasn't happy, but Ms Boyle, turned it around and I felt satisfied. I am not going into the plot, because it has been done, but just know this is a fantastic series. I read 3-4 books, if not more a week, and it is rare I can say, I hate to see the end of these great character's. I will be reading more of Ms. Boyle's books because she draws you in with the way she writes her stories. You feel you are apart of their lives. (ljb)

I have just completed all 3 of the Brazen books and MUST compliment Elizabeth Boyle for the fantastic reading. I truly enjoy historical romance books and don't mind the sexual encounters but too many of my favorite writers spend more time on sex than the story. I not only felt Elizabeth gave the perfect balance in her books but also had great historical data and a true suspense story line. GREAT JOB!

Temptress was a good book, but not nearly as good as the other two in the Brazen series.
