Overview

A Woman Made for Pleasure by Michele Sinclair

Known as the Daring Three, a trio of exquisite young women are taking London by storm. But if Lady Millie Aldon has her way, no man will win her hand in marriage—not even the one she loves. . .

A Passion For Adventure

Drawn to a life of excitement and risk, Lady Millie Aldon made a pact to forsake marriage. But her plans are thrown into chaos when Chase Wentworth returns to town. The lanky lad she remembers from childhood is now the Marquess of Chaselton, possessing an air of mystery Millie can't resist. As Chase moves through London's elite circles, his stealth manner has Millie convinced he harbors a secret—one she is determined to reveal. . .

A Dangerous Seduction

As Millie makes a game of observing Chase's every move, she finds her attraction to him unsettling. When a stolen kiss threatens to turn their flirtation into something more powerful, she questions her vow of freedom. But Millie has no idea of the danger she's facing. Chase has a complicated past—and his clandestine efforts to expose a traitor will soon provide a more perilous—and passionate—adventure than Millie could ever have planned. . .

I love to read historical romances but this book was more than just romance, lust and sex. The characters were very well written and humourous in their own ways. There is mystery and a great plot beyond just the lady falling in love with the handsome man. Pages: over 200 (cant remember exact #) Storyline: 4/5 Character depth: 5/5 Sex: mild 2/5 Overall rating: 4

Reviewed by Molly Book provided by the publisher for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book Michele Sinclair is a superbly talented author. She captured the heart of the regency era with this incredibly written novel! From start to finish, I was completely engrossed in Millie and Chase’s story, sometimes laughing out loud, other times wanting to strangle one of them. They were chiseled out perfectly and truly lent depth to the story line. Millie is a wonderful character! I loved her attitude and her strength. She really knew what she wanted in life until she came face to face with Chase, the boy from her childhood. Trouble is, now Chase is a man, and the pact she made when was younger seems to be vying for the spot that her heart wants to put him in. She’s a woman, after all. She has needs and wants, and Chase could be the perfect fit for them. I absolutely loved the feeling I got as Millie’s emotions swept over me and became my own. I felt the struggle she was dealing with with fighting her attraction to honor her pact or give her heart away. It was a fun roller coaster ride! Marquess of Chaselton,Charles “Chase” Wentworth has returned home to London where is bound and set on exposing the truth. Trust was betrayed and Chase is determined to announce the truth. But, he’s come face to face with Millie again after years away and wow! I loved his attitude and protectiveness towards her. She’s not the little girl remembers and the sparks go flying when he’s around her! I loved that. Chase is such a loving character when you get to know him. I really wanted to be Millie more than once! Chase soon learns that there is more to Millie than meets the eye and he’s not going to put her in danger, and despite the feelings in his heart, he’s got to protect her. I adored that in him. He was a strong man on the outside, but on the inside he had the heart of tenderness. These two characters, as well as their friends and family, round out this story in a truly amazing way. A bit of suspense, scorching passion and incredibly drawn out plot line, this story left me breathless and wanting more. I am highly anxious to see more of the Daring Three in Aimee and Jennelle’s story. Thank you, Ms. Sinclair, for writing an absolutely breathtaking story! I am now a devoted fan for life!

4.5 Stars A Woman Made for Pleasure is a very enjoyable historical romance with a touch of mystery.   The idea behind the Promises Trilogy is fascinating and fun.  Three young girls, aka The Daring Three or Three for short, make a pact to never get married.  Each are allowed an exception, and all three have listed some very extraordinary exceptions.  Millie Aldon is the instigator of this promise.  She has no desire to ever wed, but she wants to ensure that her best friends will be with her always.  Millie is adventurous, contemptuous and put quite plainly…a handful. Years later, she remains steadfast against marriage.  The three ladies have put off their season long enough and are sent to London to find husbands.  None of them have changed their minds, but they put on their best faces to appease their families. It’s been eight long years since Chase Wentworth has been home.  He is being called home to escort the Three into society.  He will gladly return home to accompany his sister and her two friends at least that is what he wants everyone to believe.  He is getting closer to the identity of a traitor to England and this is his opportunity to search closer to home.   What he doesn't expect is his feelings for Millie.  Her personality has always fascinated him, but now that she is a beautiful young woman and he can’t stop thinking about her.  Trouble is she hasn’t changed much since he last seen her.  She is still impetuous, adventurous and challenging, but she makes his blood boil with a mere smile.  Now he has to guard his heart, protect Millie and find a killer. These two were a joy to read and the supporting cast was just as much fun.  The mystery was well executed and developed nicely.  Even though I had an idea who the traitor was, I was guessing right up to the end.  Well done, Ms. Sinclair.  Millie kept me on the edge of my seat, wondering what she was going to next and Chase’s hardheadedness did him no good, but it was exciting to watch Millie put him through the paces. While I absolutely enjoyed this story, I’m unsure about the series.  A Woman Made for Pleasure was actually titled Promises back in 2007 and placed first in the Historical Romance category for the PASIC 2007 Book of Your Heart contest.  According to her website Promises was never published.  It also appears the other two books of the trilogy have already been outlined.  Ms. Sinclair has blurbs up for the other two books but no ETA’s.  I doubt they will remain titled Consequences and Choices, but it sure would be nice to know when they will be published. A Woman Made for Pleasure was a hit for me.  I know I have mentioned my uneasiness about the other two, but only because I want them now.  In my very selfish opinion, she has had plenty of time to have them ready for me to read *grins*.  If you like saucy heroines and stubborn heroes, with a sweet romance, with some mystery thrown in, I think you will enjoy this novel.  Once you have read them, you can join me in a campaign to get the other two released ASAP.

PLEASANT AND ENGAGING Bind by their common love of adventure, Millie, Aimee, and Jennelle decide to seal their friendship with a pledge: they will never get married unless they each meet a man who will accept, appreciate, and share their unusual interests and spirit of independence. Daughters of earls, they are uncommonly smart and bookish to be members of the ton, and they each pursue hobbies that good society doesn’t consider suitable to young women of their high station: to Millie, Aimee, and Jennelle, exploring a cave and reading a philosophy treatise seem to provide more excitement than the social gatherings usually attended by debutantes eager to land an advantageous marriage and secure a respectable place in society. They will marry for love, or they won’t marry at all. Of The Daring Three, Lady Millie Aldon seems to be the most adverse to the idea of shackling herself into marriage, but when her childhood friend (and Aimee’s brother) Charles Wentworth comes back to his ancestral home after years of military training and war missions, Millie will need to revise her priorities…loving Charles, now a dashing man, will be for Millie the most daring and exciting adventure of all. This was a good historical romance novel. It read smoothly and was enticing enough to keep me turning page without putting it down too often. I always appreciate a certain degree of historical accuracy in a HRN and Michele Sinclair added her own touch of fictional fabrication (in reference to some real historical events) that sounded plausible and certainly helped structuring the plot and interlacing the romantic element with a solid thread of suspenseful mystery. The events unfold at a nice pace and the Sinclair’s writing style treats us to an elegant and historically consistent prose. Right from the start, the novel features an engaging plot, a good storyline structure, lively dialogues, sultry sensuality, and well developed characters, both main and supporting cast. The characterization of the lead couple is effective and convincing: Sinclair delivers an interesting take on the friends-to-lovers trope, predictable at time, but enjoyable all the same, with a good balance of angst, light-hearted tones, and suspense. Millie is a spitfire of a young woman, and yet likable with her brave temper and good heart: “She had sworn never to marry, and of the Daring Three, she believed most strongly in her pledge. Or at least she had. Now, Millie wanted so very much to break it. Who would have thought a man’s kiss could ruin such a well-intentioned promise?” As for Charles (identified as Lord Chase most of the time), his transition from the emotionally detached, poised, stoic personality of a born war spy to the man in love, passionate, protective and possessive beyond redemption, is believable, but I had to wrestle a bit with the idea of him exposing Millie to the dangers of his undercover mission in order to protect her and unveil a political conspiracy. An engaging and gratifying read, A Woman Made For Pleasure, is the first installment in the Promises Trilogy. I look forward to Aimee’s and Jenelle’s stories.

I have yet to read a book from Ms. Sinclair that I did not love. I was a little disappointed when her new book was not medeval, but her writing in this time period proved to be just as fabulous. I cannot wait for the next two books in this series!
