Book Review: The Seduction of Sarah Marks by Kathleen Bittner Roth

The Seduction of Sarah Marks
The Seduction of Sarah Marks by Kathleen Bittner Roth
Publication date: June 9, 2014
Publisher: Entangled: Scandalous
 Amazon B&N | Goodreads
~~Reviewed by Lisa~~
Augustus Malvern, Lord Eastleigh, has come home from the war missing a large part of himself. He no longer enjoys being in London and the whirl that goes with it. He now enjoys the relative quiet of the country, spending time with his family. He has a large, loving and boisterous family. He is handsome and has a charming chipped front tooth that he worries when he is feeling stress. 

“Sarah Marks” is very quiet, afraid of men and being touched, and does not know who she is. Her past is missing, but the tidbits she does remember are about horticulture and the curative properties of honey.

Amnesia is something they have in common; hers from a bump on the head and his from the war. He knows her past and is treading lightly to try to help her remember on her own. They have an attraction that grows as they get to know each other. He is battling megrims, brought on by stress that put him in bed for days. He takes her to his home where his grandmother, a very eccentric vivacious woman will be their chaperone. The tenderness and care he shows her is foreign to her. Once she remembers a large part of her life she goes home to her parents. There the rest of her memory returns. The revelation that she is married and who she is married to brought a good gasp and smile. The balance of the story, omitting spoilers, is remarkable. She learns trust, love and what family is. His family members bring charm, humor, loyalty and spirit to the story. I enjoyed the pace and the conversations. I have discovered a new author to watch.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
