THE IRRESISTIBLE ROGUE the latest edition to the Playful Brides series by Valerie Bowman is just as delightful, if not more so than the previous titles. The fun and romance gets a little extra nudge ahead, with the dash of adventure Ms. Bowman has added this time around. A secret marriage, a dangerous mission and a hero and heroine who share a passion for adventure…what more could you ask for?
THE SEDUCTION OF HIS WIFE Rafe prefers to face the dangers of spying alone, but this time he needs his innocent, fiery wife to uncover the information he seeks. He has even agreed to release her from their marriage if she submits completely to his plan. However, Daphne’s alluring combination of courage and curves makes her a dangerous distraction, and it is not long before Rafe is trading subterfuge for seduction in order to prove that Daphne is meant to be his and his alone…
Valerie Bowman’s Playful Brides novels are: “Smart and sensual…readers will be captivated.”-RT Book Reviews “Sexy, satisfying romance.”-KirkusReviews “Merry, intelligent, and wholly satisfying.”-USA Today
A marriage of convenience, for the sake of king and country was supposed to be a temporary fix only, but years later as Daphne is prepared to marry another, Rafe is suddenly back in her life and unwilling to set her free unless she is willing to help him one more time.
Daphne’s character is real treat! The secret heartbreak she still carries from their first adventure and her ability to go toe-to-toe with Rafe after being pulled into another mission, make for a great romantic heroine.
Rafe, “Mr. I-DON’T-NEED-ANYONE’S-HELP”, is equal to the challenge of dealing with Daphne’s thirst for adventure, but terrified by the strong desire and emotions he feels for her, fearing they will make him weak.
In many ways Daphne and Rafe are so much alike that conflict is inevitable, although the softer sides they try to hide from everyone are what ultimately break down the barriers they have each built around their hearts.
It’s a fun-filled, witty, romantic adventure that will keep you on the edge of your seat and leave a satisfied smile on your face long after the last page has been turned.
