Reader Review: I have read this book at least four times since I bought it, for me Beverley Kendall is one of the top writers of romance novels, and she has only written but four books, her Elusive Lord´s books are the best of the best I can´t wait to read her new one.
"Sexy and dramatic." --Sophia Nash, author of Secrets of a Scandalous Bride
She Challenged His Pride
Lady Amelia Bertram may have a reputation as the most brazen beauty of the ton, but she shocks even herself when she accidently--and loudly--derides one of society's most eligible bachelors in the middle of a crowded ballroom. The timing of her faux pas couldn't be worse, for her father is seeking someone to take her off his hands that very night. . .
He Challenged Her Willpower
But when Thomas Armstrong overhears the so-called "Lady" Amelia slandering his sexual prowess in public, he cannot help but accept the dare implicit in her words. To her father's great delight, he offers to take her to his secluded country estate--properly chaperoned, of course--to teach the girl a lesson in ladylike behavior. . .
Praise for Sinful Surrender
"A delightful debut! Beverley Kendall writes with wit and passion!" --Sophie Jordan, USA Today bestselling author
"A fresh new voice in historical romance." --Anna Campbell, author of Captive of Sin

A Taste of Desire
Chapter OneLondon, 1856
As Thomas, Viscount Armstrong, digested Harold Bertram's words, he came up straight in his seat, his hands finding the curved arms of the chair. Although the marquess delivered the request with all the gravity of a clergyman officiating a funeral, Thomas prayed he hadn't heard him correctly.
"You would like me to do what?" Thomas issued the question in a soft voice and an even calmer tone, but the sound cracked the air like the report of a rifle.
The marquess gave a mirthless laugh and shot a quick glance at the study doors before shifting his regard back to him. "I am asking you to-to take my daughter under your care during my stay in America."
Thomas suffered through the second such insupportable request in as many daysthis one even more painful than the last.
Only the prior day, a peer in the House of Lords had presented him with the kind of offer that sent honest men hurtling full-tilt down the unsavory road to perdition. He hadn't thought it could possibly get more unseemly than that.
He was wrong.
What Harry spoke of was not about politics and one-thousand-pound bribes; this was one hundred times worse.
"It would beerup until the new year unless I could conclude the negotiations in less time."
Harold Bertram, the Marquess of Bradford, or Harry as he preferred close acquaintances to call him, was not a lack witthough many might doubt that assertion at the present time. He possessed the sharpest mind in matters of finance and business, and could articulatewhen not suffering a brain lapsewit...

I LOVED this story! I have to say that Beverly Kendall is one of my new favorite authors and I hope she will continue to keep them coming!
I could not put this book down! I especially loved the ballroom scene when Emily made the cutting remark about Thomas's prowess...the crowd parted and he strolled slowly - never taking his eyes off of her as he approached her. I could just feel the tension and breathlessness of the situation!
I've read both this book and Sinful Surrender and could not put either down. I was up until 3 and 4am reading until my eyes would no longer stay open. Yummy love scenes too!
