Recently Read - Tempted by His Kiss by Tracy Anne Warren
London society knows the Byrons are "mad, bad, and dangerous" and every bit as fascinating as their poetic non-relation. Join the fun as New York Times bestselling author Tracy Anne Warren presents the first tale of this tempestuous family—famous for scandal and legendary at love . . .
Orphaned beauty Meg Amberley never planned to pose as Lord Cade Byron's fiancée. Caught in a snowstorm, she takes refuge at his estate. Stranded together, Meg soon finds herself falling under Cade's spell. When the roads clear, she intends to leave, but fate intervenes.
Haunted by his past, Cade Byron has buried himself in the country. Then Meg—with her lush curves—invades his house and his life. With her reputation compromised, he proposes a pretend engagement and a London season where she can find a husband.
But as their charade deepens, Cade can't let her go . . . vowing to tempt her with a kiss that just may lead to forever.

This wasn't the most riveting romance I've ever read, but it was an enjoyable one. I didn't find Meg to be that fascinating a character, though I did enjoy reading about Cade and his horror filled past. He was very interesting; very brooding and caught up in his memories. He made Meg seem flighty in comparison. I didn't care all that much for descriptions of their social events - that just doesn't interest me. But there was some intrigue dealing with spies, which added some needed spice to the story.
