Book Review: The Pleasure of Your Kiss by Teresa Medeiros

The Pleasure of Your Kiss
By Teresa Medeiros
Release Date: December 27, 2011
Summary: Ashton Burke is a legendary adventurer who has spent the past ten years roaming the globe to forget the girl he left behind. His devil-may-care life is interrupted when he's hired to rescue his brother's kidnapped fiancée from a sultan's harem. Too late, he discovers she is none other than Clarinda Cardew, the very same girl who made off with his jaded heart a decade ago. 

The last thing Clarinda wants is to be trapped in a palace of sensual delights with the man whose irresistible kisses still haunt her sleepless nights. Although he vows he is only doing his job, Clarinda quickly realizes that allowing Ashton to rescue her may put her yearning heart in even greater peril. In a journey that takes them from the delicious intrigues of a sultan's court to the glittering ballrooms of London, Ashton and Clarinda resume the steps of their dangerous dance only to discover the most seductive pleasure of all may be love itself.


Review: Ahhh yet another great historical romance novel :) I was really excited to be able to get this book for review because I don't read nearly enough historical romances. Reading this one made me realize how much I missed them! Since the first page of this book, I was hooked. I loved Clarinda's character and how she had actually had her heart broken by the infamous, adventurous Ashton Burke. And even though a majority of the time Clarinda was seen as the damsel in distress, she could really hold her own when it came to handling men. 

The story was fast paced and engaging, dealing with Clarinda's fiancé (who happens to be Ashton's brother) hiring Ash to rescue her from a Sultan who had bought her from pirates. Clarinda and Ash's chemistry was undeniable, but Clarinda was already engaged to two men (his brother and the sultan) and Ash had already walked out of her life 10 years ago. What a tangled web, huh? I also liked the side-romances that occurred in the book, especially with Poppy, Clarinda's best friend who was captured with her. 

What I liked best about this book was how the ending was very surprising and really wrapped everything up. This whole story was charming and addicting and I really can't wait for the next book that is a brand new historical romance and deals with one of the very handsome characters of this book!
