I have always wanted to be able to paint, capture what I feel and put it onto canvas. However, I cannot even take a picture with the simplest of cameras so the option to paint a picture is a no go for me. When Cara Elliott writes about the splendor that is the simplest of flowers with such amazing detail it took my breath away. Knowing that there is someone out there that can paint such a masterpiece always leaves me and Claude Monet will forever be the bar that all other paintings are set for me.

TOO TEMPTING TO RESIST by Cara Elliott
Book #2 in the Lords of Midnight Trilogy
How much trouble am I willing to get into for this love?
Gryffin Owain Dwight, the Marquess of Haddan is a man with a well-deserved reputation as a notorious troublemaker. Gryff and his other cohorts have run amok through proper social protocol and enjoyed every minute of it. What no one sees beneath Gryff’s surface is the heart of a poet and the soul of man who honors not only the beauty of flowers but their meaning as well. Gryff however has become mesmerized by something he never thought possible, a woman he just met. Gryff is not a hero but he certainly wishes to be the salvation for Eliza, Lady Brentford who is desperately in need of a white knight.
Eliza has suffered through one bad marriage and is trying desperately to manage her brother from running them straight to the poor house with the money she has left. Eliza like every woman has a plan to use her gift of painting and illustration to make her own money making it possible for her to support herself free from anymore dimwitted men. Eliza keeps a private profile to make sure no one knows her secret. She would never guess the latest book she is illustrating is for Gryff whom she just met and is as spell bound by him as she mistrustful.
These two take an immediate attraction to one another to the next level of secret rendezvous where clothing is optional. The more they dance around the relationship the more entrenched they both become. Warning flags are flying high and flapping in the wind but neither of them will listen, they just want to know if the secret each of them is hiding will help the relationship or ruin it.
Cara Elliott is the master of writing a breath taking and romantic book built around an exciting, engrossing story of suspense and intrigue. I believe she is truly one of a kind in bringing all the pieces and characters to a fulfilling conclusion yet always leaving the reader begging for the next book.
