continuing story about two gorgeous mens journey and way against HEA love perhaps in the 1820s Edinburgh in Scotland 1822 Edinburgh, Scotland Beguile is the continuing grand love story about the man of the people , David Lauriston and the noble dandy, Lord Murdo Balfour Not a completely simple journey for love in a still homophobic society where sex between men is prohibited both by the British State laws and ecclesiastical values.It s been two years since we met them last and it is now the summer 1822 when the British England s king is on a grand visit with great fanfare in Scotland The Scottish people celebrate and in Edinburgh is it festival and party on the city s streets and squares David needs the new, assigned, clothing in the Scottish colors At the tailor, he meets by chance the man that his heart still bolts hot and intense for Lord Murdo Balfour is back in Edinburgh He could nowalk away from this than a starving man could refuse bread And what pleasure These kisses The intimacy of them David has by now a muchshinier lawyer advocate career He has moved to a nicer apartment, he earnsmoney and have a bitprestige Though David has of course, in no way, forget his old strong ideals, morality and ambition of wanting to help When old friends are in need he cannot but try to help For me personally, is this series the very best kind of historical romance The one with the traditional style with noble men bigger than life heroes like Murdo , a witty and sweetie heroine of the people..our lovely David and a lot of glam and glamor Not to forget kisses and steam, agnst, misunderstandings, a lot of banter, big feelings, some tears from me etc But also with a strong focus on a portion of equity and social problems, then, two hundred years ago This time it deals with the story of David s support and help to a good old female friend It s a dark story about cruel wife battering and men s immense power over their wives at this time We also get the chance to enjoy the almost comical in how a royal English guest the King was treated and honored Chuckle worthy, like a semi funny joke David Lauriston s and Lord Murdo Balfour s grand love story started in a heartbreaking way and so very yummy in the first book David is still a bit hesitant about his inner feelings and needs, but when the Lord asks for a meeting can he no longer resist the temptation It gets steaming hot, heart thumping beautiful and I was just a big romantic silly smile This story is pure romantic pleasure A rebound is now in sight I want , much , soonish or actually NOW immediately Please You re not an abormination, David You re beautiful, Dear sweet David, you captured my heart in the first book and I love you evenby now You dared this time, and then there s the chance to win Lord Murdo Balfour, you re a tempting conqueror and still a dandy but you showed us another greater man now also I wasn t sure about you in the first book but wow you re a man to fight for Enjoying the tentative intimacy that was growing between them and that felt almost tangible, here, in this warm, secret corner of the world Enlightenment is a highly recommended, three books series, in the

    This story was simply dazzling and profoundly romantic My heart felt like it was melting with love Beguiled is the second installment of a series entitled Enlightenment It is set in a historical period and trust me when I say that this series is SO GOOD, I actually forgot that I dislike the historical genre in general The writing is a beauty but I guess the strength lies in the characters.David was simply a darling a gentle soul, he had an ingenuity flair in him that I found ende This story was simply dazzling and profoundly romantic My heart felt like it was melting with love Beguiled is the second installment of a series entitled Enlightenment It is set in a historical period and trust me when I say that this series is SO GOOD, I actually forgot that I dislike the historical genre in general The writing is a beauty but I guess the strength lies in the characters.David was simply a darling a gentle soul, he had an ingenuity flair in him that I found endearing However, he also became stronger andcourageous than the first book without losing his integrity There was a significant change in him, after the encounter with Murdo two years ago Previously, David thought of being with a man as sin even if he refused to live a lie and marry a woman But here, David admitted that it started to make him angry, how society judged a man who lied in bed with another man.And Murdo Balfour, ah, Lord Murdo In Provoked I found him as this dashing arrogant rake who sometimes looked down to David s principles But here, oh, MY, how two years changed He was less arrogant, David definitely got under his skin and Murdo admitted that he missed David Here, Murdo was like David s knight in shining armor Not that David was a damsel in distress, but Murdo ensured that David s well being and needs were taken care of Even if David didn t tell Murdo everything.What could I say about the two of them Their chemistry was lovely, their sexual tension was gorgeous I LOVED that first meeting after two years GAH THE TENSION Did you know, I had my hand LITERALLY on my chest almost throughout the whole book, because it was so, so romantic I LOVED how they talked to one another, the soul barring session and then, the sex Sigh, the sex I actually sent a text message to Susan who finished the book before I did, asking whether they would have penetration sex She said they did, and it was glorious Well, GLORIOUS it was So good and so worth the wait And the ending Well, it s not completely HEA yet, we still have book 3 coming, but it was less subdued than book 1 It was passionate, it was tender, it was flawlessly hopeful sigh But wait, it wasn t just about the romance there was quite an action and suspenseful plot here too It involved Lady Elizabeth whom in Provoked had a crush over David who s trapped in a marriage with an abusive man We got David and his friend Euan trying to get Elizabeth to escape and it was intense So final words It is simply one of the best romances I ve read this year It is the kind of story that stays with me after awhile Also a kind of story that can make me break my own policy of not doing re reading So yes, I could only gave my rare 5 stars I couldn t find anything to complain Not a single thing except maybe WHY BOOK 3 IS NOT OUT YET The ARC is provided by the author for an exchange of fair and honest review No high rating is required for any ARC received.
