Two Days of Temptation by Evie North Review @samhainpub

Two Days of Temptation (The Brothers Mortmain, #2)
Release date: December 2, 2014
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Genre: Historical (Regency) Romance
Series: The Brothers Mortmain #2

Who’s to say who is blind…and who sees clearly?

As Hannah approaches the imposing gates of Youlden Manor, she keeps reminding herself of why she is about to give her body to the master of the house. Two years ago, Lord Sebastian Youlden wronged her and their unborn child, and she cannot resume her life until she wreaks revenge.

When Sebastian awoke weeks after a duel that stole his sight, he discovered he’d lost something else—the woman he loved. Grief-stricken, he retreated to his isolated estate, where he occasionally sends for women from the local inn to temporarily assuage his loneliness. Yet there is something strangely compelling about the latest lady of the night who comes to pleasure him.

The first time they come together, Hannah’s icy resolve begins to melt in the heat of his bed. As passion begins to burn away the veil of secrecy between them—and gradually lift the blindness from Sebastian’s eyes—the only thing left standing between them and a love that never died is the naked, painful truth.

Warning: Rather a goodly amount of hot, satisfying sex between a lonely man and the woman he never forgot.

My Rating: 3 Roses

A sweet second-chance romance, Two Days of Temptation was an enjoyable read.

Hannah and Sebastian were both good. Hannah had gone through a lot but had survived against the odds and refused to let her circumstances keep her down. Sebastian was full of regret for making a mistake that cost him the woman he loved. But, beneath that, he was also very sweet. Both characters were likable.

The romance was sweet. Hannah and Sebastian had loved each and got a second chance to make it work. The only issue I had was that I wished Hannah had actually given Sebastian a chance rather than assuming the worst. If she loved him as much as she said, I would have thought she would give him the benefit of the doubt. But, I still thought they were good together.

The plot moved quickly and I was kept interested the entire way through. I enjoyed the story and the ending was lovely.

Two Days of  Temptation was a sweet little historical romance novella. It was an enjoyable read. Romance lovers, this is a book you might want to check out.
