Overview

“Lorraine Heath’s books are always magic.”
—Cathy Maxwell

“[Heath’s] deftly skilled story-telling entrances and enthralls from the first page to last.”
—Karen Hawkins

Historical romance readers just can’t get enough of the Lost Lords of Pembrook. In her previous book, She Tempts the Duke, New York Times bestselling author Lorraine Heath introduced three brooding and intensely passionate brothers determined to reclaim their stolen birthright, as their righteous quest inadvertently leads each one down a separate path to true love. The story continues with Heath’s Lord of Temptation, as a dark and dangerous lord hardened by a life at sea sets his sights on one virtuous woman who, unlike so many of his conquests, would deny him what he hungers for most. When it comes to creating breathtaking love stories, irresistible rogue heroes, and heart-stopping sensuality, Lorraine Heath always delivers—and this Lord is one temptation no romance lover should resist…especially fans of Lisa Kleypas and Liz Carlyle!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Bestseller Heath continues the Lost Lords of Pembrook series with a formulaic follow-up to She Tempts the Duke. No longer “lost,” free to reclaim his birthright and status in society, Tristan Easton still feels more at ease on the sea, where he is known as Crimson Jack for the scars across his back. Lady Anne Hayworth decides to go to the Crimea and bid a saintly farewell to her dead fiancé, and she is predictably repulsed yet intrigued by Tristan when he offers to sail her there for the price of a kiss. This leads to a “long, slow, leisurely” and rather dull ship-board courtship. When they return, Lady Hayworth is shocked to see her sea captain at a ball and learn that he’s a lord, though a preposterous game of strip chess demonstrates his lack of propriety. The well-drawn angsty hero unfortunately only highlights the cardboard heroine and thin plot. (Oct.)

Meet the Author

Lorraine Heath always dreamed of being a writer. After graduating from the University of Texas, she wrote training manuals, press releases, articles, and computer code, but something was always missing. When she read a romance novel, she not only became hooked on the genre, but quickly realized what her writing lacked: rebels, scoundrels, and rogues. She's been writing about them ever since. Her work has been recognized with numerous industry awards, including RWA's prestigious RITA®. Her novels have appeared on the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists.

I love Lorraine Heath, I have tried to read all her books. Lord of Temptation is the second book about the Lords of Pembrook. I loved the story with Mary and Sebastian and I love this story about Tristan and Anne. It was a pretty sweet story and it is interesting how the three Lords unravel in front of us. I can wait to read the next story Lord Rafe. I love how Tristan and Anne became lovers and fall in love with eachother. Great story

This is the second book in the series about the Pembrooke Lords. This is Tristan story. He loves the sea. He is honest in his feeling which i like in a story. The story is believable with lots of romance. It is about 240 pages with an an epilogue. I look forward to reading book three.

I like that. read it and write your own review...

I enjoyed the book, but the main female character did annoy me at times. She would say no and then not stick to her guns and she would give in.

This is my favorite book written by Lorraine Heath so far. I loved the description of the settings and development of the characters.
