The youngest of the three at the time, he was left at a workhouse while his brothers went off to do what they had to do in order to return to Pembrook one day and reclaim their inheritance. Workhouses were horrid places and my heart broke for Rafe as we learn some of what he had to endure, just to survive the years spent waiting for his brothers return. I adore Rafe — the boy he was, and the man he became.
And Evelyn — Evie — what a wonderful woman she is! Strong, loving, compassionate… the kind of woman I would want to be, living in her era. He had revealed only bits and pieces of himself but she was beginning to gain a sense of the whole. Like her, he had been left with no one to see after him. But he had managed to make himself into a successful man. He had not relied on his heritage, but on himself.
He was to be admired. Perhaps someday she would meet a man who would respect her for doing what she had needed to in order to survive. As I said, I did read this story first, and I can tell you it does work well on its own. The bottom line: Lorraine Heath is a truly talented writer and one of my few go-to authors when I need a guaranteed feel good story.
Her characters are always amazing people with such an incredible capacity for love, whether giving it or receiving it, whether deserved or not. Though, in the end, their happily ever afters are hard fought, and always deserved. My thanks to Avon Books and Edelweiss for providing me with a copy of this story in exchange for an honest review.

Lorraine Heath brings her Lost Lords of Pembrook series to a satisfying conclusion with this emotive, romantic and passionate story. Nothing mattered. He was only ten years old, the youngest and most vulnerable of the three brothers who escaped that night and the one with the deepest emotional scars. His experiences have left him reclusive, cold and cynical; Lorraine Heath brings her Lost Lords of Pembrook series to a satisfying conclusion with this emotive, romantic and passionate story.
His experiences have left him reclusive, cold and cynical; a man who cares for nothing or no one; a man with dark secrets he has never shared with anyone. She invaded his dreams, inhabited his thoughts, occupied his mind.
I loved watching Rafe trying so hard to deny his feelings for Eve when everything he does reveals just how much he really cares. He always refuses to use his title but refers to himself as Lord Rafe Easton to get the respect Eve deserves from Madame Charmaine, the dressmaker. How I imagine Evelyn Eve Chambers… She possessed a determination, a strength of will that would have had her finding a way to avoid the rookeries.
After her initial distress, I admired her for coming to terms with the reality of her situation and it was satisfying to watch her grow in strength, confidence and determination. Is there a law of mistresses somewhere, a book that solicitors study?
I loved her determination to make Geoffrey pay for what he did to her and I positively cheered when she confronted him with her head held high. Better still was the scene where she ploughed her fist into his face! Ms Heath built the sexual tension so well. When Rafe agreed to allow Eve time to adjust to him, it created a delicious sense of anticipation, particularly as Rafe has difficulty keeping his hands off her.
My favourite scene is where Rafe finally allows Eve to touch him. There is something so beautiful and sensual about it. He held her, just held her, while she held him.
Marveled at the wonder of it. So much skin against skin. Silk to satin. Velvety warmth. Rafe has always struggled with feelings of anger and resentment towards his brothers for abandoning him.
It was satisfying to finally see the seeds of reconciliation between Rafe, Sebastian and Tristan and, when Rafe is in danger, his brothers are prepared to do anything to find him. There is a lovely moment in the Epilogue when I knew that Rafe had finally come home. Lord of Wicked Temptations delivered everything I look for in historical romance… emotional, sensual and romantic; the perfect end to this wonderful series.

Rafe is one of my most disliked heroes I have come across in a long while. People who loved 50 Shades of Grey might enjoy this. For people like me, who hated it, I strongly suggest skipping the 3rd brother of the Lost Lord series. But he could damn well make use Tropes: Shitty-ass-forced-proximity, So-bad-for-each-other-opposites-attract After having really enjoyed the 1st and 2nd book in the series, this took a drastic turn.
But he could damn well make use of her. His reasons for being this way is never properly explained or unreasonably exaggerated. He had expected that. He was a loner. It suited him.
Such a dislikeable character. You will spend your day planning for my arrival.
Lord of Wicked Intentions
Fairytales often feature evil step-sisters, but rarely evil step-brothers. The latter are more common in romance novels— Prisoner of my Desire and A Kingdom of Dreams come to mind—especially in historical romance. However, surprising no one but himself, as the bidding begins, Rafe speaks up. The challenge had been spoken, and he never recanted his statements. Standing, he tugged on his black brocade waistcoat that suddenly felt far too tight.
