Publisher's Summary

Three young heirs, imprisoned by an unscrupulous uncle, escaped - to the sea, to the streets, to faraway battle - awaiting the day when they would return to reclaim their birthright.

Once upon a time, he was Lord Tristan Easton - now he is Crimson Jack, a notorious privateer beholden to none, whose only mistress is the sea. But all that will change when exquisite Lady Anne Hayworth hires his protection on a trip into danger and seduction....

She has never known temptation like this - but to protect her heart, she knows she must leave him behind. Yet Tristan cannot easily forget the beauty - and when they meet again in a London ballroom, he vows he won't lose her a second time, as fiery passion reignited takes them into uncharted waters that could lead the second lost lord home....

    "HISTORICAL ROMANCE AT IT'S ABSOLUTE BEST"

    Firstly, this is actually book 2 of The Lost Lords of Pembrook series however, Audible hasn't yet listed book 1. It would have been nice to start at book 1 - She Tempts The Duke, but don't be put off as this is easily a 'stand alone' book.

    Good story with a great chemistry between the roguish Tristan and Lady Anne who just can't help falling for his charms but they are both tortured by the past. There's an instant attraction that they both try to fight but, however hard they try, it builds and builds. Anne is being forced to marry but, despite their bond, she won't force him and he doesn't want to be tied down and the sea is calling him back.

    It's a passionate and heartbreaking love story and, absolutely one of L.H.'s best. 9.5 hrs of pure listening pleasure.

    Worth a credit? Definitely - this one is a MUST HAVE.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Passionate Love Story"

    Tristan is a ship captain and a contradiction. He's a Lord but eschews the title; he is educated but dresses almost like a ruffian and he appears insouciant yet is incredibly aware of all his surroundings. Tristan is a wanderer having been forced to sea at a young age. He is a restless soul.

    He meets heroine, Lady Anne in a London tavern and he is attracted to her right away. She wants him to take her to her fiancé who left her four years earlier to fight in the Crimea. He declines her offer making her angry and she storms out.

    Anne is determined to make her journey for many reasons and she is also determined to do things her way. Eventually Tristan agrees to transport her and they have a very interesting voyage. Anne almost bristles when she confronts Tristan and he enjoys their encounters but as the ship sails toward the Mediterranean these two drop their masks. Anne has been melancholy and guilt ridden, she needs to forgive herself and move on with her life. Tristan is scarred horribly from being separated from his brothers and losing his father, he is terrified of loving again.

    Both characters try very hard to keep their hearts protected but soon they find themselves irresistibly drawn to each other. Both try to dismiss their feelings yet they just can't seem to let each other go. There are moments in this story which resonate with true heartache for the past and even for the present. Anne wants a family and Tristan wants freedom, they are at odds with each other over their futures yet neither wants to forgo seeing the other. This is a passionate couple, really demonstrative and many times they support each other in difficult circumstances. This is a truly romantic and memorable tale

    "Excellent 2nd book in this series."

    This is the 2nd book in the series of Lost Lords of Pembrook. The first book is not available on audible, however I did read it and it was fantastic, it was about Sebastian. This book, Lord of Tempation, is about Tristan and the 3rd book is about Rafe. I am looking forward to the 3rd book which is available on audible, and I am about to start it. I am not sure why audible does not have the books grouped as a series or why the 1st one is not available on audible. However, the order of this series is as follows:
    She Tempts a Duke
    Lord of Temptation
    Wicked Intentions

    I hope this helps.
    Also I thought the narrator has done a fantastic job!

    "Loved it"

    I've been waiting for this book to come out, since I fell in love with the first one in the series! This one was fantastic. I wasn't a fan of the narrator. But I love Lorraine Heath's books. Can't wait for book 3!

    "Fun to listen too !"
    Where does Lord of Temptation rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was better than some that I have listened too.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Lorraine Heath? Why or why not?

    yes


    What about Faye Adele’s performance did you like?

    Her accent was fun to listen too and she has a soothing voice.

    "A Little Too Melodrama"

    I really believe this book would have been so much better had the narrator not been so melodramatic. I truly like Lorraine Heath books but this one, I didn't, not so much. I understand romance is truly formula writing however, there are writers like Julie Garwood who put such a different twist on the plot that it makes the book worth listening to and enjoy. With that said, if the narrator is over-dramatic, making the female voice shake everytime she uses the word, "love", it takes away from the book.

    So through a lot of the book I found myself rolling my eyes.

    "Oh Lorraine, you know how to tell a tale!"

    I love Lorraine Heath. I love this book. I need more Lorraine Heath and her complicated, sexy, scarred, tortured heros that melt at the love of a good woman.

    This novel is brilliant, enchanting, heart wrenching and just beautiful. I am not going to repeat the plot for you, but just know that this love story is so much deeper than the description leads you to believe.

    The whole novel centers around the hero and heroine and the internal obstacles they face trying to love each other. It is just pure romance for the sake of romance. I really didn't think they would figure it out until right up until the end.

    I wish that the first title was available as it is sure to be just as beautiful as this. Don't let that put you off though, I kept up with the novel fine without it.

    The narrator was a brilliant choice for this book. Her voice is somber and sets the right mood to this haunting tale.

    Buy it, throw a credit at it...just get it!

    "Excellent Book; Weak Narrator"

    I loved this book. It had a great story line, great chemistry and lots of passion between the sea capitan (and nobleman) Lord Tristan and Lady Anne. Lord Tristan is very compelling and mysterious with a tortured past, and Lady Anne is a strong and determined female character, especailly for that time in history. The only downside is the weak narrator. She made Lord Tristan sound board and arrogant and all her other male characters sounded like silly nim-wits. Her voice is too soft and monitone, and I found my self turning up the volume frequently to hear her. Disappointing, as the book is really excellent.

    This is the second book in the series, but the first is not yet on Audible. You don't need to read the first book to enjoy this one, but it would be nice if Audbile gets it - BUT with a different narrator!
