Overview

From award winning author Debra Dier comes a tale of a returning war hero and the lady intent on healing his wounded soul. Saint's Temptation is set during the Regency period in England.

Saint's Temptation is the sequel to Devil's Honor. Book 4 in The Heiresses Series. Each book in the series can be enjoyed as a stand alone novel.

Clayton Trevelyan, Earl Huntingdon, always did what was expected of him, until the day his beautiful, impetuous, eccentric fiancée Marisa Grantham ended their engagement. No one expected the quiet young scholar known as The Saint to purchase a commission and march off to fight in the Peninsula. Seven years later, Clay returned home a war hero and former spy determined to find an appropriate bride--his last promise to his father. Hardened by war, the once shy young man knew precisely what he needed in a bride. She must be quiet, dignified, intelligent, and above all have no illusions of marrying for affection. After losing Marisa, he swore never again to allow a woman close to his heart.

When Marisa overhears two men discussing plans to murder Clayton, she swears she will do anything to keep the stubborn Earl alive, even if that involves kidnapping him. No longer the naïve young woman who allowed her one and only love to walk away, Marisa is determined not to lose him a second time. Yet as she fights her way past his defenses and struggles to heal the wounds scrawled across Clay's gentle soul, a murderer lurks in the shadows, threatening both their lives.

About the Author

Debra Dier is the bestselling author of sixteen critically acclaimed romance novels and short stories. Her work has earned her a place in the Writer's Hall of Fame.

Debra was born and raised in Niagara Falls, New York. Although she always knew she wanted to do something creative in life, well-meaning family members talked her into doing something in a much more practical light. She received a BS in Information Systems Management and headed down a career path that included writing computer code and designing computer systems. It wasn't exactly what she had in mind when she thought of a purely creative career. For some mystifying reason, she was put on a fast track in this career and became a manager of other programmers and analysts in a large corporation at a young age. It was then she decided to try her hand at writing something other than computer code. After her first novel, Surrender the Dream was published, she took the plunge into writing full time. She has never regretted that decision.

Deb lives in the mid-west with her family, their two Irish Setters who often make appearances in her books, and two cats who keep asking for starring roles.

I loved and enjoyed reading the outstanding, fantastic & fabulous, heart-wrenching, awesome & amazing, historical romance novel that I received free from the talented, extraordinary author, Debra Dier. Since the Trevelyan's and Grantham families spent the summer together seven years ago,Clayton Trevelyan and Marissa Grantham ended up spending a lot of time together and got engaged.  When the summer ended and found Clayton acting markedly different toward her, she ended the engagement and Clayton went off to war.  Now, Clayton has returned and is looking for the exact opposite in a wife from the woman he had been in engaged to who had broken his heart.  Marissa has men still wanting her attention and hand in marriage but her heart belongs to only one man.  Marissa overhears two men talking about murdering Clayton, and Clayton tells her not to worry that he can take care of himself.  Marissa does the only thing she can do for the man she loves, she kidnaps him. Read the highly recommended, beautifully written, suspenseful & heartbreaking, romantic love story.
