Review: Seducing an Angel by Mary Balogh

angelFrom book jacket:

He must be wealthy, well born, and want her more than he wants any other woman. Those are the conditions that must be met by the man Cassandra Belmont chooses for her lover. Marriage is out of the question for the destitute widow who stands accused of murdering her husband and must now barter her beauty in order to survive. With seduction in mind, she sets her sights on Stephen Huxtable, the irresistible attractive Earl of Merton and London’s most eligible bachelor. But Stephen’s first intriguing glimpse of the mysterious, alluring Lady Paget convinces him that he has found the ideal woman to share his bed. There is only one caveat. This relationship fueled by mutual pleasure must be on his terms.

As the two warily circle each other in a sensual dance of atack and retreat, a single night of passion alters all the rules. Cassandra, whose reputation is already in tatters, is now in danger of losing the one thing she vowed never to give. And Stephen, who wants Cassandra more than he has ever wanted any woman, won’t rest until she has surrendered everything – not as his mistress – but as his lover and wife…

This is the fourth book in the Huxtable series. I was looking forward to reading Stephen’s story, but was disappointed. I didn’t like Cassandra at all. She seemed all wrong for the man that Stephen had become. I just didn’t buy them as a couple, and I couldn’t get into the story. I’m hoping that Con’s book next year will be better.

the book girl gives SEDUCING AN ANGEL 3/5.
