Tempting the Earl

The Muses' Salon Series, #3

I recommend reading this series in order to help with character development. With that being said I enjoyed this story. It was like other books I have read where the woman has hidden jobs because of the time period. However this book also had a sub plot similar to Mr. and Mrs. Smith. They are both spies, the other has no clue. The romantic story line of him staying away only to fall in love with her is also not knew. All in all I liked the two plots separately, and think that maybe they should have been spread out more. A longer book, or maybe two installments. The codes and mystery is what made me give this book a 3.5.

Book Blurb for Tempting the Earl



Olivia Walgrave is finished with being a countess. Writing under a pen name, her controversial column for the scandal sheets provides her with some income and far more excitement than managing a country estate. Besides, in the three years since the wars have ended, her dashing husband hasn’t spent one night under their roof. So Olivia has prepared a plan, and an annulment. All she needs is his consent…

Harrison Walgrave, the Earl of Levesford, let his father coerce him into marriage, but his true devotion is to his Parliamentary career—and his secret work for the Home Office. Yet now, with freedom in his grasp, he finds he cannot so easily release his wife. Seeing her stirs a hunger no other woman has reached. A distraction now, when he is a breath away from revealing a ring of traitors, could be deadly. Still, wherever his investigations lead, the thought of Olivia lingers. It might be obsession. It might be treason. But the only way to escape the temptation is to succumb…
