Overview

Tempt the Devil by Anna Campbell

Any man in London would worship her. Yet Olivia is, quite frankly, bored of them all. Despite her many dalliances, she's never felt true passion, never longed for any lover's touch . . . until Julian, London's most notoriously wanton rake, decided to make her his mistress.

From the moment he first saw her, Julian knew he must possess her. And when he discovers her greatest secret, a scandal that could ruin her reputation and end her career, he knows just the way to use this damaging information to his most delightful advantage. He offers Olivia a deal with the devil: he'll keep her secret . . . if she allows him the chance to show her true ecstasy.

But Olivia must be careful, for Julian has a secret of his own: he will not rest until she is completely, shamelessly his.

As I've written before I love stories of redemption and this is one of those. In fact, all Anna Campbell's books seem to be of redemption. This is Ms. Campbell's third book and it's as good as the other two. I didn't like Julian at first. He was what I would call a bastard. He wanted Olivia just because he could have her. I can understand Olivia. I can really identify with Olivia, having been sexually abused myself, you don't think you're worth anything and no man will want you.

In 1826 London, Olivia Raines is the first choice of anyone wanting a courtesan. Her beauty and skills are beyond comparison as nobody does it better than she does. Surprisingly, behind her enticing smile is a woman whose heart is ice.

Earl Julian Southwood has just come home to England after time in places like Marrakech and Constantinople. Considered a rake by polite society, he persuades Olivia to be his mistress. However, he is different than those hedonistic aristocrats who desire her especially those who have had her; he wants more than her body. He wants her mind, her heart and her soul given freely to him. Julian knows he will not get them unless he can get her to confess the secret that turned her heart into an iceberg even as she begins to thaw with a desire for his lover¿s touch.

TEMPT THE DEVIL is a powerful late Regency romance starring two wonderful vivacious lead characters whose role reversal refreshes the story line. He is the one who seeks much more depth with their arrangement; while she is the one whose past limits her relationship to sexual dalliances. Fans will think of Dean Martin¿s tune Everybody Needs Somebody Sometime as Julian builds his campaign around expanding that theme because he needs the whole Olivia; but she distrusts passion, intimacy, and especially love. Anna Campbell provides a potent, entertaining and heartwarming historical romance.

This third book by Anna Campbell follows her previous theme of love conquering all. If you set aside her graphic language and explicit sex scenes, the character's backgrounds are richly detailed and the author makes a great effort in realistically showing the impact of this on their actions.

Definitely worth the read. This was the third book I've read by Anna Campbell, and I find myself looking forward to more...

No surprises here. The erotic writing was okay, nice but a bit fractured. The male lead was to much of a whimp and the female lead was to much of a ninny. However it was a good way to kill a couple of hours while waiting in line for your car to be fixed. You do not have to pay to close attention to the plot. Your average nice little romance.
