My review cross-posted from Joyfully Reviewed: http://www.joyfullyreviewed.com/reviews/Dec08/oneforlove.EW.html
David Barrett, Earl of Dunreith, is the image of propriety. Though the earl is rich, handsome and young, he is also the very last person on earth anyone could imagine seducing an innocent lady. Yet, after years of hiding his love for best friend and neighbor, Victoria Caldwell, David stops resisting. With a touch of magic, he suddenly possesses the one woman he’s longed for all his life.
Victoria has known David since childhood and finds herself bewildered when she suddenly starts seeing him in a new light. Swept away by passion, Victoria discovers that there’s more to David than she ever knew. But as friendship turns into love, David and Victoria find that his simple spell has unlocked a chain of events that has consequences neither could have dreamed.
Get ready for a wickedly delightful trip back in time. One for Love is a luscious Regency romp that will leave you begging for more.
There is just something incredibly sexy about a reserved, utterly respectable male breaking the rules by caving into the potent mix of eroticism and lust, isn’t there? The seeming conflict between two sides always generates a fascinating hero and Emma Wildes has certainly dished up an incredibly delicious hero in David. As for Victoria, she is utterly charming and very likeable, the perfect match for David. I enjoyed watching the two take the step from friendship to love and was cheering for them to overcome whatever obstacles life, or the villain, threw at them. One for Love was both scintillating and sweet, with endearing characters and a scheming villain I am sure we haven’t seen the last of. I can’t wait to read the next installment of the Wicked Warlock Society series.
