45 starsDidn t have enough paranormal stuff for me I was a little bit disappointed with that But I loved the Hh The Wherlocke family is awesome Hannah Howell has created a really cool historical paranormal family with this seriesB Before reading the book description I assumed this was a vampire book The male model on the cover is so pale But after reading the description I learned in fact that this is not a vampire novel There is a small paranormal element in the book but no vampires All the Wherlock s have some sort of gift and the heroine Lady Olympia Wherlocke has the gift of foresight Olympia is a woman with purpose She loves helping her
FAMILY AND OTHERS SHE IS ASKED BY LADY AGATHA and others She is asked by Lady Agatha to help find her brother Lord Brant Mallam Brant and Agatha s mother is pretty aw A treat Lady Olympia Wherlocke is asked by Lady Agatha Mallam to help her find her brother and rescue her from a marriage arranged by her mother Lady Olympia agrees that the match that Agatha s mother is preparing is preposterous and downright evil so she promises her that she will helpThe Earl of Fieldgate Lord Brant Mallam was been swimming in his cups since the woman he loved was sold into slavery by his mother He has no idea the depravity and cunning Lady Mallam has implored against her own children Slapped into reality by Olympia Brant must face the malevolence his mother has brought not just on his siblings but his father s bastard born children as wellLady Mallam might just have met her match when she starts to attack the Wherlocke family They have special gifts gifts that might just swing the chances in their favorHannah Howell truly out did herself with the Evil with a capital E villain in this story Lady Mallam is beyond crupt beyond power hunger a character ou can truly hateThe romance between Olympia and Brant is explosive and I adore both characters Especially enjoying their recovery from their pasts and taking on such a deplorable enemyeven when that enemy is familyUnfamiliar with the Wherlocke series I was very happily surprised with the paranormal twist Although this is my first read in this series it was able to stand alonealthough I will definitely want to back read what I ve missedIf He s Tempted was a dazzling paranormal historical fiction read with just the perfect amount of smoldering romance to keep ou plastered to the pagesThis ARC copy of If He s Tempted was given to me by Kensignton Publishing Zebra in exchange for a honest review This book is set for publication on April 2 2013 I swear the villains and danger in these books just become ludicrous with each new book As I said in my review of 4 it s a shame that Howell s writing can t do her ideas justice because the premise of these books is great Their execution however is lacking Every story has the same formula and rarely deviates from that path the dialogue isn t realistic and often far too flowery and the repetition drags the pace deviates from that path the dialogue isn t realistic and often far too flowery and the repetition drags the pace to a snail s paceAlso I m really tired of lame book covers Generic picture of a hot guy Fine But since the hero of this tale has grey eyes I m trying to figure out just who the hell that s supposed to be on the cover I have to admit this book just didn t do it for me and I had to force myself to finish I think me and I had to force myself to finish I think this is a book that can t be read as a stand alone because the references to the other family members didn t really add a lot to the story for me Therefore anyone reading this review should be aware that I did read this as a stand alone so take my comments in that contextThe reason I didn t enjoy this book was the superficiality of the writing Brant the hero was a dissipated drunk Then he wasn t He was tortured by guilt Lady Olympia Wherlocke has the gift of foresight When Lady Agatha Mallam asks Olympia to locate her brother so he can rescue her from an arranged marriage she knows exactly where to find Lord Brant Mallam Earl of Fieldgate What happ. ,
Hen he thought it out and then he didn t feel guilt any The heroine Olympia has some sort of paranormal skill kind of a I see things thing This ability did not really play into the storyline much except the titalating vision she had of the hero in a very compromising situation with two in a very compromising situation with two this meant he had to really clean his house or Olympia was going to be seeing a lot of X rated visions The wicked wicked villain was just wicked The fact that she view spoilersold children into prostitution hide spoiler 35 starsThis book as the whole series as far as I can remember touches on sensitive topics that some people may not like or feel bad about reading keep THAT IN MIND IF YOU ARE in mind if ou are to read this series of booksAmong these topics are abuse pedophilia child trafficking among other things and no these things are not made caused by the main characters Hannah Howell does it again After the death of his fiance Brant Mallam has divorced himself from his mother s machinations which directly resulted in Faith s death Unfortunately this allowed his mother to take full control over the household and enter in disgraceful practices like kidnapping and selling children in to sexual slavery When Brant finds this out from Olympia Wherlocke he is furious and determined to see his mother get what she deserves Olympia got involved when Brant s sister asked for help in keeping her mother from marrying her off to a truly despicable man dying of the pox Yup his mother is truly an evil person Regardless of the nature of the subplot this is a really good book It showcases Olympia who we ve gotten to know and love in the previous books as well as Stefan Artemis and Olympia s street gang A truly enjoyable rump through London NOTE I received a copy of this book on NetGalley for the purpose of reviewWHAT I LIKEDLet me start by saying that I adore Hannah Howell s Highlander novels They were some of the first historical romances I ever read and I fell in love with her writing style I knew she d branched out into other sub genres of historical romance but had never given them a try Then this book popped up in NetGalley and I knew I had to check it outThis is the latest in the Wherlocke Vaughn series I believe book five The book started off surprising #me with the supernatural angle It s subtle but I loved it The interactions between Olympia #with the supernatural angle It s subtle but I loved it The interactions between Olympia Brant were so much fun and the style was what I had come to expect from Hannah s other books All too often authors start to feel too formulaic once they ve put out a significant number of novels but I can count on Hannah Howell to keep me entertainedI spent a good deal of the book wanting to throttle Brant s mother and thumb Brant himself for letting things get so bad That being said it was a fun ride and when I d finished this book I immediately bought all four of the previous Wherlocke Vaughn novels to readWHAT I DIDN T LIKEI knew going into this book that it wasn t the first but my rule of thumb is if I m able to understand 80% of the plot when diving into a mid series book the author has done their job This sort of fit into that category It s my fault for not starting with the earlier books so I was fully caught up on the characters I was a bit confused at times but overall still enjoyed the books thoroughlyMy only other complaint was to my wallet Once I d finished this book I HAD to buy the others DOVERALL VERDICT 55 Blue DuckiesHannah Howell is one of my go to authors for a fantastic historical romance I highly recommend starting at the beginning of this series before reading this book however If ou re looking for well written historical romance with wonderful characters and a bit of a paranormal. Ens next is something she never envisioned Since his betrothed died Lord Brant Mallam has drowned his sorrow with wine and women His dissolute ways have only emboldened his calculating mother But with the help of the enchanting Olym. ,
