Review - Lilac by Louisa Trent
Author: Louisa Trent
Buy Lilac Here!
Rating: You Need to Read
Tegan Ellis storms the Hudson River mansion of negligent mine owner Sean Griffith intent on nobly sacrificing herself for her mining reform cause. Her mission to allow the despicable Robber Baron to ruin her during a decadent orgy and then blackmail him into making much needed mine improvements goes hopelessly awry, however, when her adversary shows her his scandalous erotic art collection. One glimpse at a painted mural depicting naked and writhing bodies and the romantic eighteen-year old virgin is overcome with lust.
Throwing caution to the winds, she tosses her legs in the air.
The despicable Robber Baron never stands a chance. Not only is he unable to defend his dubious honor, he is ravished on the spot. On several spots, to be exact.
When Sean finds out Tegan meant to use him, he extracts a carnal revenge from the duplicitous mining reformer.
And a naughty boudoir romp begins.
I’ll admit that I was surprised at Lilac. The book at first didn’t meet my preconceptions. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing – rather the first half of the book had me rolling on the floor laughing. Then the tone changed and it was tragically sad. Ms. Trent took me on a hot, spicy and emotional ride. Tegan and Sean were both real people with their past firmly controlling their actions. I really enjoyed Lilac. Lilac is not for the faint of heart either – the issues of the characters do on occasion take them down dark sexual routes. While historical, this isn’t your mother’s romance novel – it’s an emotional ride. I highly recommend Lilac for those who enjoy something a little more than vanilla and want good strongly written characters. I look forward to reading more by Ms. Trent.
