USA Today bestselling author Julianne MacLean brings the popular Pembroke Palace Series to a passionate, satisfying conclusion...

Sometimes the matchmaker finds a love of her own...

Lady Charlotte Sinclair has long given up her dreams of happily ever after. Years ago, a tragic accident claimed the life of her beloved fiancé, but somehow she found the strength to go on-as an independent woman with a secret double life that has earned her millions. Lately, however, she has begun to yearn for something more...

While setting out to play matchmaker for her mother, Lady Charlotte meets a rugged, handsome stranger who saves her from a thief in the street, but her heroic rescuer soon turns out to be more mysterious-and dangerously captivating-than any man she has ever known. Swept away by passion into a sizzling summer affair with a man who leads a double life of his own, she vows to live only for pleasure with no promises of tomorrow. But soon she must accept that one final night of ecstasy with an irresistible lover is never going to be enough...

Or will her heart forever belong to another?
William Thomas, the second son of a Yorkshire viscount, is about to be disowned for his unbecoming ambitions to become a medical doctor. But what does it matter if he can have the woman he loves at his side? Determined to finally claim the hand of Lady Adelaide, his lifelong beloved, William is shocked to discover that she has accepted a marriage proposal from a duke. With the wedding only days away, will he be able to win back her heart?

Eternal Love I just had the opportunity to read "Seduced at Sunset" written by Julianne MacLean, which is the conclusion of the Pembroke Palace series. You will enjoy Charlotte and Drake's story! But it is also the happy story of Adelaide and William whom you should remember if you have read her previous books in this series.This story was fantastic from beginning to end. Really breathtaking! Lady Charlotte, Adelaide's daughter is the last unmarried sibling of the family. The story begins as she believes that she has a charmed life as an independent writer, but discovers that something is missing in her love life! Being attacked on the street, she is suddenly rescued by a gentleman named Drake Torrington. As soon as they meet, sparks will flare between the two and she becomes mad of desire for him. They both decide to have a casual sexual accounter, but both find out, there is more than sex in this relationship. Drake had only expected to have sex with Charlotte, but he finds her mysterious and fascinating. Now, she wants more than a summer affair. They share secrets which I will not share with you; you will have to read the book to know. Charlotte's mother, Adelaide and William, Charlotte and Garrett, true father, have a second chance to be reunited. Will their love survive after so many years! You will enjoy a beautiful romance with inflamed love scenes! Julianne MacLean is a high-quality writer that kept my interest throughout the book. I was hooked from the first page and could not put it down. Do read her complete Pembroke Palace series! My favorite book was "In my Wildest Fantasies". This author has also written THE ROYAL Trilogy of which "The Prince's Bride" will be released on April 30th 2013. Another breathtaking Regency novel! If you are a fan of Julianne MacLean, you won't be disappointed.
