A Myrt's Review Invitation to Passion (My Lord's) by Bronwen Evans The Course of True Love...   Madeline Knight thought she was helping her long time friend Richard Craven from being found in a compromising situation with married lady, Sarah Wrentham, only to end up compromising herself and being quickly married off to Richard in a matter of days! Maddy and Richard have been friends for years, ever since he rescued her at 13 from bullies.  He has always been her hero and as she grew older, her secret crush.  However, she never expected to actually marry the dashing ladies man.  Richard thinks of Maddy as a little sister, in fact, the little sister of one of his closest friends.  He is in love with Sarah, who had been forced to marry another man. He never expected to marry his sweet friend, Maddy. While Maddy was growing up, her brother, Rufus, had relentlessly worked to redeem the family name from years of disgrace by proving their late father had been falsely accused of treason.  During that time Richard had filled the void left in Maddy's life by befriending her and exchanging in a regular correspondence with her over the years setting the foundation for a deep friendship. Maddy had hoped to marry for love and despite her feelings for Richard she hoped to marry a man who loved her back.  Maddy knows Richard is in love with Sarah and doesn't want to force him into a loveless marriage.  Richard doesn't want to see his dear friend ruined in Society because of his selfish actions and wants do the right thing by her so he insists they marry. When Richard really looks at Maddy as his prospective wife he stops seeing her as a little sister and sees the beautiful young woman she has become.  One of the best things in the book is the open and honest friendship the two have and how Maddy has always been able to ask Richard about anything over the years and he has always given her the respect of an honest answer.  As they discuss their marriage and what they want it to be, they agree they want to maintain their special friendship and they both acknowledge they want more than a marriage of convenience.  Maddy asks only that Richard continue to be completely honest with her and when he takes a mistress, as she assumes he will eventually, that he tell her. Richard wants to tell her that this would never happen but he doesn't know if he can trust himself and instead promises her he will always be honest with her. One of Ms. Evans' strong suit is the intimate and passionate love scenes she writes.  Her heroines usually have a wedding night that virtually sets the reader's own room on fire and Maddy is no exception. Her and Richard's first night together starts their new life off with figurative fireworks for both of them and helps to solidify their new relationship.  It also deepens Richard's resolve to always make sure Maddy is happy in their marriage. But there is still Sarah, whose husband manages to die in a suspicious fall from a horse while Maddy and Richard are being married.  Richard ends up helping the needy Sarah, who is now either a murderess or a potential victim to someone after her husband's estate.  Sarah also makes it clear she is very much interested in continuing their previous relationship, In a nice turn, Richard realizes he doesn't want to be with Sarah anymore and keeps Maddy informed of everything that is happening with Sarah.  Except of course for one little, tiny detail... The story continues with the mystery of Wrentham's death, a suddenly supportive and handsome new friend who shows up at the right times to rescue our heroine, old grudges coming back to haunt, and it is never a good idea to break a promise, no matter how much of a good idea it seemed at the time. The biggest issue in all this for Richard is the question of true love and is it possible.  He comes to love Maddy so much that he constantly questions whether his love for her is enough. Maddy is not the only one to be in love for the first time. For Richard, his history of superficial relationships in the past where he thought he was in love make him doubt his capacity for the real thing when he has it.  It's up to Maddy to show him the way. I really enjoyed the easy banter between the characters.  Maddy's openness with Richard was refreshing in the way she really could and often did ask him about anything. Richard's attempts to always answer honestly even when the subject was something a young Society lady should know nothing about were very amusing.  I really liked that they had such a strong physical chemistry to match their emotional one.  Sarah was definitely set up to be a bad girl but just how bad was the question running through the story and kept her interesting.   This is the third in a series and can be read as a standalone like I did but the ending was a bit murky (although completely resolved) with the sudden appearance and reference to characters and incidents in the previous books.  I look forward to reading those two now as well. This a wonderful read for those who are interested in a Regency romance that offers more than a series of misunderstandings! I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Good golly, I am so glad I dont have to talk with this writer, as I would go stark raving mad waiting for her to get to the point! I dont know, maybe its because I read an exquisit romance before this one. Can not understand why this writer is a best seller. Had to press a star just so I could post

Madeline Knight thought she was helping her long time friend Richard Craven from being found in a compromising situation with married lady, Sarah Wrentham, only to end up compromising herself and being quickly married off to Richard in a matter of days, He never saw her as a grown women, He always thought of her as sister. He was in love with someone else. Maddy and Richard have been friends for years ever since she was 13 and he saved her from young men. He always thought of her as a sister because her brother is his closest and dearest friend . Because of the scandal they cause he says they have to marry. Meanwhile Maddy wanted to marry for love and she hates forcing Richard. As they discuss their marriage and what they want it to be, they agree they want to maintain their special friendship and they both acknowledge they want more than a marriage of convenience. Maddy asks only that Richard continue to be completely honest with her and when he takes a mistress, as she assumes he will eventually, that he tell her. She thinks that Richard has no feeling for her. Meanwhile he stopped looking at her as a sister and really saw her as a woman. don't want to spoil it . get this to see do they confess to each other the feelings they have . get it to see if Richard is always be honest with her

Overall, this is a good read. The characters are well developed and the storyline is good. What i didn't like very  much is how Madeline accepts that fact that her husband is off helping another women that was a past lover. She was really insecure, and that's fine, but she really needed to stand up for herself.

I am really loving this series. One of my favorite things about this book is the Heroine. She had to grow up fast in her young life. Her maturity and strength at such a young age helped her get through the difficult things that happened to her in this book. I love how every book in this series carries on the story with each book. To be able to revisit the characters from the other books and see how their lives are going and how their families are growing. It is almost like checking in with old friends. I can't wait to see what happens in the next book!
