Finished reading: Surrender to the Devil by Lorraine Heath + Promise Me Forever by Lorraine Heath

I really enjoyed Surrender to the Devil by Lorraine Heath -- Frannie Darling was a central character in the previous novel that I read and I was eager to see how her story continued --

She was against marrying Luke because she was so afraid of having to be part of the ton.  Instead, she ends up with a duke -- the highest title of nobility (not counting princes and kings) --

From the start, Frannie and Sterling were attracted to each other -- but they knew they had to stay away from each other because of their stations in life.  Heath was able to capture the confusion and anguish that the two characters felt as they wrestled with their feelings for one another.

Sterling is an imperfect duke (irony with his name!) who hides a deep-dark secret (one that caused the rift between him and his father) and Frannie is too perfect for the world that she was born, raised and live in --

I love how Heath resolved the story.

Promise Me Forever is part of Heath's Lost Lords Trilogy and was recommended to me by F --

The premise reminded me of Again the Magic by Lisa Kleypas -- one of my all-time favorite romance novels.

I love Lauren and Tom together -- I love how the scoundrel constantly tries to corrupt the lady -- and she lets him!

Circumstances cause them to be separated for 10 years and, when they reunite, they are both wary of the other -- so much had changed ... and yet so much had stayed the same with each one.

Unlike Again the Magic, after they sort out the misunderstanding surrounding the last 10 years, there's very little that stands in the way of the two --

How they ultimately come together is wonderful -- and I love Tom's loyalty and steadfastness.
