Book Blurb:A reluctant heiress resigned to her fate… Mary Elizabeth Edwardes has one of the largest fortune's in England, but has no desire to leave her quiet country existence… and even less to acquire a husband she cannot choose for herself. A dissolute nobleman bent on retribution…

Trapped in a duplicitous existence since scandal destroyed his fortune and family name, Lord Hadley Blanchard has spent the better part of a decade posing as a disaffected exile while spying and seducing in the service of the English Crown. A dangerous game of seduction, and intrigue…

When summoned from abroad by a former lover, Lord Hadley perceives an opportunity for vengeance at last. By employing the full measure of his seductive charm, he woos the ward of the man who destroyed his life, little knowing that winning Mary's fortune will mean risking his own treacherous heart.

Review: You know how they say never judge a book by its cover? Well this one you can. I mean look at that cover! Not quite a bodice ripper but still super sexy for a period romance, one of my very favorite things.

I've really been loving historical romance lately and Victoria's Treacherous Temptations reaffirmed that love.

When I saw that the author was inspired by 18th century writings like Dangerous Liaisons, well I knew this was the book for me, and I was right!

This is a darker romance set in the Georgian Era, not a period I usually read, but Victoria brings that age to life remarkably well.

I can see a lot of Valmont from Dangerous Liaisons in Hadley. He's just not a nice fellow. Lady Mary is quite the opposite. So you know this is going to be a tale of good triumphing over evil and the rake will be reformed.

Love those kinds of stories.

Definitely a great romance read for historical romance fans
