The Pleasure Trap is the sinfully seductive, delightfully romantic story of a woman who discovers a most thrilling type of pursuit.
After years of heroism in the fight against the French, Ash Denison wants nothing more than to savor the good life. But an urgent request has sent him to a writers’ symposium. His charge: to unmask an author who has rattled several members of the ton by revealing their most intimate, most scandalous secrets. Not one to be left out, when Ash encounters a bold, beautiful – irresistibly aloof – woman writer, he can’t help stirring up some gossip of his own.
Much to Eve Dearing’s surprise, Ash is far from the well-mannered gentleman she’s heard about. In fact, he’s shockingly brash and has taken an inexplicable interest in manhandling her at every turn. Yet something about his searing embrace makes her forgive his wicked behavior – and succumb to his dangerous seduction. And when a fellow writer is brutally attacked and Eve becomes the killer’s next target, Ash surprises her once more by vowing not only to keep her safe, but to win her heart.
Only an author of Thornton’s talent could pull off a story as tangled with plotlines, as filled with memorable characters, as tingled with paranormal touches as her latest—and then write about writers! This is one of the best books of the season. It’s lush, rich, exciting, passionate and humorous. What more could you want? Kathe Robin, Romantic Times
