"Enslaving the Day" is an enjoyable and sexy historical romance. Annalise and Gordon are an engaging couple and every conversation has sensual undertones. Their story is one of misunderstandings and jealous reactions. The ups and downs of their journey is entertaining even when you want slap someone upside the head for being so dense. Annalise is headstrong and very unsure of Gordon and his motivation. You can't really blame her after their first encounter. Gordon does try to redeem himself but their mutual attraction makes that difficult. The story has some very sexy moments that are balanced with fleshed out characters and well written dialogue. Loved the secondary characters, especially Isabella. This is second book in the series but can be read as a stand alone. I did, however, read the first after I finished this one. Can't wait for the next.
The Story: Poor judgement and alcohol were partly responsible for Lady Annalise's condition. Baron Dailey was responsible for the rest. When she decides that she can't marry a man just because she's having his baby, Annalise and Gordon begin a merry and sexy chase. The question is who will catch who.
One night’s mistake finds Lady Annalise Hera in a very compromising situation. Pregnant, unmarried, and on her way to Gretna Green. Although Baron Dailey put her in this position, she belatedly realizes she can’t marry him and will do anything to get him to release her. Even lie. After all, life would be better as a disgraced, unwed mother than the wife of a cocky, irritating man she can barely tolerate.
Gordon Ashford, Baron Dailey, never thought much about his friend’s younger sister. That was, until she grew into a beautiful woman. Now, after one drunken night when he took her innocence, he can’t seem to get her out of his head. With her constant refusal of him, and perpetual need to argue, he should give her up. But he can’t, even though she’s told him she’s not carrying his child.
Convincing her to accept him proves to be near impossible, but he’s not one to easily give up.
