Too Great a Temptation by Alexandra Benedict

A lord so sinful he is dubbed the "Duke of Rogues," Damian Westmore lives for pleasure—until the day his brother dies at the hands of pirates. Abandoning the libertine life to pursue revenge, Damian finds the criminals he seeks and joins their crew in disguise, waiting for the chance to strike the brigands down. But he never imagined there would be a woman on board—or that the stunning siren would inflame the very passions Damian swore to resist until his brother's death was avenged.

Beautiful, fiery Mirabelle Hawkins longs for the freedom of the high seas—so she stows away on her brother's pirate ship at the first opportunity. But she finds something more exciting than chase and plunder: a bold, handsome, secretive sailor whose touch makes her tremble with desire . . . but whose love is a cutlass that could destroy all she holds dear.

Such An Enjoyable Cast of Character's! I would say for the most part I really enjoyed this book, especially the last half. The first to middle has very little action, but the ending was great. I loved that the author included a funny Epilogue that catches you up on the H/H and her brothers. Please note that there is A LOT of sex in this book, which is usual for most Romance Novels. The author has a series on Belle's brothers that sound enjoyable. (ljb)

This book is a must read for romance lovers. Pirates and forbidden love? Count me in. Along with the great story line, it is beautifully written. I fell in love with these characters as much as they fell in love with each other.

This is my first book by this author. It is over 500 pages. The plot is good. The adventure at sea and on land is great. The male is alpha and the female is strong but still somewhat reasonable. The romance will not disappoint.

Loved the storyline. A little harsh for me at times but otherwise a great read.

The Ton thinks that wealthy Damian Westmore is a wastrel, labeling him 'The Duke of Rogues'. However though he enjoys females, he is on a mission of vengeance. Pirates killed his younger brother Adam at sea so he plans to even the score. For two years he learned what he could about sailing until by 1821 in New York he feels ready to act on his hard earned knowledge and find the culprit. Damian becomes the navigator of the Bonny Meg, a pirate vessel captained by the Hawkins brothers. Also on board is Mirabelle Hawkins, sister to the vessel¿s leaders. As Damian and Mirabelle fall in love to the dismay of both of them, he finds circumstantial evidence that his employers, his beloved¿s siblings, killed his brother. --- TOO GREAT A TEMPTATION is a superb Regency romance due a strong story line enhanced by a several fathoms deep cast and the predominantly oceanic setting (readers will feel the motions of the waves). The lead couple is a typical era star-crossed pairing, but the rowdy support crew especially her brothers bring out Damian¿s dilemma often in a comedic way. Sub-genre fans who have not discovered Alexandra Benedict (see A FORBIDDEN LOVE) are missing out on a top new talent worth the sea cruise. --- Harriet Klausner
