Tasty Book Tours Presents: This Earl Is On Fire + Giveaway


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.


Few things shock Liam Cavanaugh.  The much scandalized Earl of Wolford is no stranger to the rumor mill.  Whether it be  by way of the scandal sheets or word of mouth.  But when he finds himself injured, unable to see, and in a strange bed.  Liam becomes all to aware that this latest scandal is far more truth than anything that even he is prepared for.

Adeline Pimm has always longed for adventure.  A desire long denied her.  Due to an injury at her birth; which left one leg shorter than the other.  But now, a full grown woman of 22.  Adeline is determined to make a London showing.   Proving that though her stem may be a little bent, she is far from anyone's shrinking violet.


This second offering in Vivienne Lorett's Season's Original series, offers quite the step up from its predecessor.  Making quite the grand showing in character development, character interaction, pacing, setting, and plot.  This Earl Is On Fire is no less than Historical Romance perfection.

While Adeline's disability (and I use that term loosely) does come into play within the course of this read.  It is thankfully not allowed center stage.  That honor being rightfully reserved for the wonderfully "sickbed romance" that takes place when Adeline is left to nurse a very battered Liam back to health.  A time so full of interpersonal connection between the two, that one is sorry to see it end.

But end it does, and then its off to the dances!  Well, there is also an opera thrown in for good measure. A time filled with all the snobbery and tongue wagging that the ton can muster.
But surprisingly, most of that is still reserved for Liam.  Who is  gallantly doing his best to shield Adeline from its worst.

There is as always the bet and wagers about Liam's chances at becoming the next Original.  There is also a secondary plotline centring around the pilfering of Liam's extensive antiquity collection.  But for the most part, the attention remains with Liam, Adeline, and their fight for love. In spite of themselves.
