Liam is not ready to let go of the one woman who stirs his deepest longings.


THIS EARL IS ON FIRE
Season's Original #2
Vivienne Lorret
Releasing August 2nd, 2016
Avon Impulse




The sheltered daughter of a country baron, Miss Adeline Pimm comes to London looking for adventure… and finds it in the form of a bloody, unconscious man slumped in the doorway of her family's rented townhouse. Though his identity is a mystery, Adeline is inexplicably drawn to the handsome, injured man and vows to nurse him back to health.



Liam Cavanaugh, the scandalous Earl of Wolford, is startled when he awakens in an unfamiliar bed, wrapped in bandages that hinder his eyesight, with no memory of why he was beaten half to death. Although he can't see the witty young woman who tends to his wounds, her alluring voice--and a single stolen kiss from her soft lips--help soothe his pain. But when he is fully healed, Liam is not ready to let go of the one woman who stirs his deepest longings.

Liam will do whatever it takes to see Adeline again, even if it means giving up his rakish ways. But his disreputable past is not so easily forgotten and his secrets are far more dangerous than he-or Adeline-ever imagined. 



“However, perhaps if my pillow were fluffed.”

She looked at him as if he were teasing her, but played along nonetheless, chafing her hands together. “I must have an innate talent for pillow fluffing.”
If one could possess a talent for such a thing, she certainly did not. Not that he would tell her. Because if he did, he already knew the result. She would leave his side, and he would lose the relief—or whatever this was—he found in her presence. And he had never been one to deny himself necessary comforts.
Then, as she had done before, she leaned over him. Her hands went to either side of his face, pressing into the pillow, the inviting plumpness of her breasts resting on his chest. Enjoying the moment, he closed his eyes and drew in a deep breath that hinted at pear blossoms.
She went still. “Why are your hands at my waist?”
Were they? He squeezed his hands and found that, yes, they most definitely were. He also discovered that the satin gown was warm from the heat of her body and fine enough that there was little barrier between his hands and the slender curve of her waist and the slight flare of her hips.
“I’m merely aiding in your efforts by offering stability,” he said, by way of an excuse. Of course, he hadn’t intended to touch her—gentleman’s daughter and all that. Given his pleasure-seeking nature, however, he wasn’t entirely surprised by his wayward hands. Perhaps he should think about removing them before he found them cupped around her breasts. Inadvertently, of course.
“Afraid that I will crush you?” she said with a laugh against his lips. “Well, do not worry, because I have finished. Your pillow is sufficiently plump.”
More than. And lumpy as well, but he did not mind in the least. Especially when he felt her lips against his cheek.
“Thank you, Wolford. I had a delightful evening.”
In the next instant, he didn’t know what came over him. Suddenly, he found his hand at her nape, pulling her mouth to his.

Don't miss the first title in the Season's Original Series




USA Today bestselling author, VIVIENNE LORRET loves romance novels, her pink laptop, her husband, and her two sons (not necessarily in that order … but there are days). Transforming copious amounts of tea into words, she is an Avon Impulse author of works including: Tempting Mr. Weatherstone, The Wallflower Wedding Series, The Rakes of Fallow Hall Series, The Duke’s Christmas Wish, and the Season’s Original Series.



She was not like any other debutante. Scheming and manipulation were foreign to her, not mother's milk. In fact, she was one of the few people he trusted.

So my next read is obviously going to be the first book in this series. I thoroughly enjoyed this highly entertaining regency romp! Vivienne Lorret is a new author to me but The Season's Original series has definitely got a budding fan in the making! I absolutely love the fact that all the titles in the series are a spin-off on well known songs too!

I loved Liam and Adeline, I feel like when I say Adeline has a disability, I'm being disloyal to her character because her disability probably made her a better person and is what ultimately made her stand out from the rest, which would make it not a disability... right? On another note I haven't read many historical romances with disabled or less than perfect heroines and I really enjoyed that about this book. Not that I don't enjoy reading romances about Dukes and earls falling in love with perfect blonde and blue eyed debutantes, but it is quite refreshing when an author throws a curve ball like this.



Liam the Earl of Wolford .... lands up on the Pimm's doorstep after he is brutally attacked, and from the moment Adeline sees him she knows he is unlike any other man she's ever known. The Pimm curse hard at work ( read the book you'll get it if you do). Liam, like all broody nobleman has some hangs up ( which never messed with his hot and steamy vibe) he's been burnt in the past and is weary of all debutantes no matter how sweet and innocent they may seem.

Since this is the second book in the series I missed out on all this wager business but I plan to remedy that. Throw in some secrets passages, hidden doors, questionable relatives and artefacts and you have the makings of a great historical romance!
Highly recommended!

How strange it felt to have been away from his kiss for a few moments and have this joy pour through her at his return. I love you, she thought again, wrapping her arms around him, pulling him closer.
