EBOOK READ [Tempting Eden] Author Margaret Rowe
I found the characters in this book to be extremely memorable and then some The story itself deals with physical and emotional abuse plain and simple The main character Eden is emotionally abandoned by her mother and then emotionallysexually abused by her stepfather And because of that I found the written material about the abuse slightly difficult to read This book deals with Eden attempting to put the abuse behind her the psychological scaring she suffers since being abused and whether or not Hart another member within the abusive family can forget her transgressionsTempting Eden is a very dark et interesting book It s not my favorite by this author same author as Mistress by Mistake but if Liniştea Cri you re looking for a different story in historical romanceou may want to give it a try What a great love story I loved how these two over came the rough beginning Do gold they FINALLY got back Together I m really torn about this book The description of the story is to save her Introduction to Type and Leadership younger sister Eden allowed her stepfather to take advantage of her That description is really misleading and not the story Eden is seduced by her stepfather and falls into sin and infatuation with him But her stepfather goes from being a considerate lover to an abuser treating Eden like a sexual doll Making her do degrading things as well as doing degrading things to her When Eden realize what her stepfather is about she tries to pull away from him but he uses the threat of going after herounger sister to keep her in line This book could have a been a real emotional read if the author would have written the heroines flashbacks a little better ot at least let us experience what she went through The heroine s memories seemed almost like a seperate story within the book Like the heroine was reading a story of someone elses life There was some light bondage in the book the heroine found that she liked the role of being a submissive but I felt like the author really didn t know what she was talking about so some of the bondage parts came across as unrealistic The book was also labeled erotic historical but there really wasn t much eroticism to the story The author used some curse words and the prereuisite words found in erotic to describe sex and feeling but to me erotica is than using vulgar words Not everyone can write erotica and this author proved that she one of those people In fact she hHas than proven it to me since I just finished reading a book written under her other name Maggie Robinson purely coincidental I didn t discover this until I went on to Magaret Rowe s website and saw Maggie Robinson s nameAll in all this book was good not great This story happened May 1814 going forward Major Stuart Hartford was proper priest like andabstained from baser urges Eden was awkwardugly plain and prickly and actively disliked menaccording to H When her beautiful Mom married for a 2nd time toIvor a baron her daughters were 12 8 and herson 10 Son later died Waterloo Sickly mother endured several miscarriages became a poppi eater Evil step father groomed Eden for sexual advances by accidently bumping into her when she was 17 and kissing her 18 This led to sexual activity He threatened to rape her ounger sister if Eden failedto comply w his desires He beat Eden with whips and sketched her in the nude He used alcohol to make her cooperative with his demands Eden later described to hero her being Ivor s willingsex slave I disliked that her sex activity was thought #Sexy When Ivor Was # when Ivor was pedophile It was disgusting that the servants overlooked this horrendous behavior Later the hero threatened the former servant blackmailer of h So this story had 2 baddies IMO the author could tell a story but needed to refineher rationales for character behavior actions andreactions It s time to stop cloaking the sexual abuse and violence of women as eroticaerotic romance This starts out reading as uasi Stockholm Syndrome when the stepfather controls all aspects of his stepdaughter s life which includes sexual abuse even though she thinks she loves him The story doesn t improve once the stepfather dies and a nephew takes his place Of course misunderstanding occurs the nephew thinks his cousin is a whore shameful disgusting etc and she blames herself for all that happened D N F Seduced and trapped in a depraved relationship with her step father Eden feels that she s finally set free when her step father dies Yet in his place her guardianship is placed in the hands of his nephew Major Stuart Hartford known as Holy Hartford to his friends When he arrives on the estate all he wants is to uickly discharge his duties and find a nice wife that could help him live down the scandalous reputations of his late father and uncle When Hartford learns the true nature of Eden s relationship with his uncle he s torn between horror fascination disgust and an attraction that won t go awayHartford decides the best way to protect Eden is to marry her but Eden is so damaged by what she s been through that she would rather do anything even if it s to become a whore rather than put herself under another man s thumb So she rebels and it s up to Hartford to tempt Eden and to show her how good things could be between them when degradation is replaced with loveTEMPTING EDEN is a hard book for Me To Review TEMPTING EDEN to review TEMPTING EDEN so well written and uniue to its genre that it captured my attention and kept it However I still had issues with TEMPTING EDEN Eden was such a damaged character and with the way TEMPTING EDEN was written I found it hard to believe that she could make such a complete transformation and achieve her happily ever after Honestly I didn t believe Hart was man enough to give Eden that He wasn t as well drawn out as Eden and I never really warmed. A scorching debut novel of erotic historical romance set against the backdrop of Regency England Eden Emery is no stranger to sin To keep her sister safe from harm she's paid a steep price with her body and very nearly lost her soul But when Baron Ivor ,
Decadent and saucy scorcher of a readWhat do ou do with one of the tons most perfect nobleman and an imperfect woman that is about to turn his Holy Hartford persona upside downEden Emery is the reason I am addicted to TEMPTING EDEN Eden isn t It's All About the Bike The Pursuit of Happiness on Two Wheels your usual Regency heroine who has lived a hard life Don not get me wrong Eden Emery has lived a hell of an odious life under the nefarious brutal rule of her step father Baron Ivor Hartford Lord knows I cheered when he dropped dead Ms Rowe did an outstanding job in creating a heroine who jumped off the page and right into my heart Even though I never experienced anything as close to Eden s plight I did experience the feeling of unworthiness that emanates from TEMPTING EDEN S pages Eden s voice is so strong and clear that it would cut through glass Her strength in character is what pulls the story along to make her one of the most endearing heroines that will be tucked nour heart for all time TEMPTING EDEN had some very interesting and charismatic characters such as Mrs Iris Brown who is the Madame of the elite PATHEON CLUB her band of misfits and girls that she takes under her wing and I would be obtuse to not mention Hart s lovable compassionate widowed aunt Mrs Julia Cheverly who her self was a staple to this very engaging and heartening story The main attraction besides Eden Emery that captivated my attention from the get go was the newly appointed Barron Hartford Major Stuart Holy Hartford I ask how Corinna, A-Maying the Apocalypse you can not love a man of pure perfection with miles of imperfections of his own to work through Hart when we first meet has a holier than though attitude which is perfectly matched with our severely independent heroine who will never allow another man enslave her We could say that Hart isou re a typical alpha make hero with his beautifully stunning face with his Adonis like physiue Hart does not capture our heart at the beginning He is so wrapped in his new wards appearance that he doesn t see the woman for who she is Well said Juliet No wonder Ivor left her in the lurch She s the most awkward thing Ugly as an old boot besides He swallowed a healthy dose of Ivor s brandy and poured another Hart It s not like ou to be so unkind She is not ugly although her dress is not uite de la mode Her looks are no above average I grant but it seems she s had a hard life It is very primitive here Perhaps she just doesn t know how to get on in society To be sociable An understatement my dear aunt She s just plain rude You certainly are not used to a woman who does not fall at The Big Book of Losers: Pathetic but True Tales of the World's Most Titanic Failures!

IT SHE LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT I DIDN loved every minute of it I didn really a love connection between Eden and Stuart even though we were told they loved each other I never understood why Stuart wanted to marry her so soon I never understood why she turned him down so many times She did feel she was unworthy but that too didn t seem true Both characters were very likeable but I wish Stuart had been a little alpha true Both characters were very likeable but I wish Stuart had been a little alpha of the sex scenes were very graphic and I enjoyed them There was even one with the heroine using a dildo anally I preferred the scenes that were between Eden and Ivor to those between her and Stuart the hero I think the ones with Ivor were graphic and detailed I found it interesting that the author created a oung heroine twenty two who was very skilledexperienced at sex and actually liked it That s not the usual type of historical heroine we re given and I found it a refreshing change Ms Rowe also writes under the name Maggie Robinso. N who makes him uestion the virtue of being proper For the passion she incites burns away his inhibitions and inflames his heart But Eden has vowed to never again cede her destiny to a man And Hart is left with no choice but to tempt the temptress hersel. Up to him as a heroic character I believe I felt that way because of the lack of respect shown between Eden and HartEden s degradation was so complete and started at such a oung age and so well explained I found it hard to believe that she would have the strength to stand up to Hart without fear and second guessing herself I also found it hard to believe she would fight Hart about their relationship instead of just doing his bidding This feeling was compounded with her submissive personality These feelings could be me and my misunderstanding of submissionThe only other thing that bothered be about TEMPTING EDEN was how when Hart went after her back to his estate That didn t seem appropriate to the historical setting and I couldn t see how they could ve gotten away with living together on the same estate without a chaperone in that era Why didn t the neighbors come in protest Why wasn t anything said about that Even with Eden s past it wasn t something that was widely known To everyone s eyes she was still an unmarried maiden However I m not an expert so I could be wrong but because of that situation it pulled me out of the storyTEMPTING EDEN is a wonderful tale that left me curious to see how the story was going to play out Although it left me with a lot a uestions I don t think anyone would be disappointed with ordering this book What do I say about a book and a character that broke my heart I don t even know where to begin From the first page Eden s sorrow hit me suare in the chest To be completely taken advantage of by our stepfather is unforgivable At the tender age of 12 Ivor Hartford started weaving his web of Eden s destruction She was impressionable and lonely and when Ivor started paying attention to her she lit up She craved love and affection like no other By the time she was 18 she was giving herself freely to this man of disgusting intentions in every way imaginable He even goes as far as to mutilate her body with his initials in an extremely inopportune place When her conscious rears its ugly head and she pulls back from him he threatens her sickly little sister with the same abuse Thinking she has no other choice and in a way liking that fact she continues with her degrading lifestyle for several earsWhen Ivor dies suddenly Eden is finally free Casting aside any evidence of her affairs before the new head of the household Ivors nephew Stuart shows up becomes priority number oneThe one piece of evidence she needs is missing and it seems that a household employee knows her sordid details and wants to use it against herStuart is known for his experience on the battlefield and his appropriateness in his life Never a hair out of place never a look astray Until he comes to Hartford Manor and meets the stepchildren of his late uncle Frail and sick Jannah and her older sister Eden who is plain and skinny as a rail Of course he can t turn them out into the cold they are practically related Instead he allows them to stay and puts up with Eden s accusatory stares and that little niggling feeling he gets every time heglances her wayWhen the past comes to light Stuart immediately gets the wrong impression and sends Eden packingher wayWhen the past comes to light Stuart immediately gets the wrong impression and sends Eden packing makes his growing feelings for her easy to dismiss She must be weaving a spell on him just as she did his uncle Appearances are deceiving however and when Stuart discovers the real truth behind Eden he sets out on a journey not only to heal her but to make her his forever Eden is broken inside from her ears of abuse She is jumpy and untrusting Her belief in herself is degraded so low there may be no turning back Will Stuart be able to help her live againPretty soon ou guys are gonna think I am lying when I say I don t read a lot of historical romance huh I swear I don t usually I ve been on a kick or something lately This story just tore my heart to pieces Eden almost at times appears to have Stockholm Syndrome She fluctuates between loving and hating Ivor And not understanding that if she does hate him why her body reacts to him on a daily basis She feels as though her body is betraying her in liking some of the acts he makes her do If she likes it she must love him right Wrong When Stuart comes along she thinks he must be just like Ivor and doesn t understand the emotions he evokes in her How can a tainted woman begin to feel as if she deserves something better In a society that condemns such behavior she simply doesn t have feel as if she deserves something better In a society that condemns such behavior she simply doesn tHave Power To Understandpower to understand rise above itThe writing in Tempting Eden is incredibly good and will make ou feel as if And the Ass Saw the Angel you are there It is extremely graphic at times so the faint of heart might have trouble with those scenes There is also a theme of dominance and the need to feel it woven throughout the book To say I enjoyed the book almost seems wrong because of the dark and abusive nature of itbut I did Watching Eden overcome her personal struggles made me smile simple as thatSet in the early 1800 s and spanning severalears Passer par le Nord: La nouvelle route maritime you will feel the times You will hear the horse drawn carriages and the spoken dialect I can t say enough good things The book is dark and slightly disturbing I simply adored it Very dark with descriptions emotionalphysical rape which was a little too drawn out Really don t like when the villian gets the kinky stuff but the hero is very vanilla at least until the very end At first Hart was an ass but then he redeems himself The ending was a little rushed Liked the book and will definitely read by this author I am addicted to the Regency era When Berkley Heat in June 2010 sent a copy of TEMPTING EDEN by Margaret Rowe I couldn t help but drop everything and find out what was between the cover Yes it is aear later and I just reread this story and found myself drawn back to the deliciously.
