Add to Wish List
Fiona Ferguson's troubles began with a kiss . . . It feels like a lifetime ago that Alex Knight saved Fiona from certain doom . . . and stole a soul-shattering kiss for good measure. Wanting nothing more than to keep her safe, he left her in the care of her grandfather, the Marquess of Dourne. But Fiona was hardly safe. As soon as he could, the marquess cast her and her sister out on the streets with only her wits to keep them alive. Alex has never forgotten that long-ago kiss. Now the dashing spy is desperate to make up for failing his duty once before. This time he will protect Fiona once and for all, from a deadly foe bent on taking revenge on the Ferguson line-and anyone who stands in the way . .

Re: Twice Tempted
I love reading series! It is really nice to be able to find
a wonderful book and learn that there are many more set in
the same place and time and with many of the same
characters. I do like when there are stories within a
series (even just novellas) that can be read independently.

I love the covers on your books--no extremely long piles of fabric and the hair
and the color of the gowns go so well together.
(Sandra Spilecki 10:32am December 3, 2014)
If the story line is interesting enough, I'll read a series.
After a while, the characters in those types of books tend
to be almost like your own family, and you can't wait to
find out what happens next!! The only drawback is when
certain Authors wait so long (sometimes a year or more)
before the next book comes out. By then, you start to lose
interest in the series altogether, and at times, I have
stopped reading the series. I came across one Author that I
loved, and she took a completely different direction with
her story line. To me, that was a big disappointment. I
think she hit a brick wall with her story line, so she
decided mid-stream to go in a different direction. I
haven't read her books in quite a while, and she's had a few
books out since then. I haven't had a chance to read your
series yet, but it does sound good to me. Thank you for
leaving the heads on the characters of your story on the
cover of your book!! It adds so much to the cover, and
doesn't look like a mistake was made at printing!! I'll be
putting your books on my TBR list, and since the Winters are
long where I live, I'm sure I'll have plenty of time to get
started on your series!! Congratulations!!

I love when secondary characters get their own story! Leave no character behind.
(Seanna Yeager 11:52am December 3, 2014)
I love series. Rather they are the same people through out
or different couples.
(Kimberly Woodall 12:18pm December 3, 2014)
I enjoy series as long as each book can act as a stand alone... sometimes I miss books and never know what happens, especially if it is a series with multiple authors...
(Colleen Conklin 12:32pm December 3, 2014)
I love reading series books! However, I also despise
them. I like to read them one after another so that I
can just go on from book one and read them in a row to
the end. Some times I have the books for a few years
before I even read the first just so that I have two or
three to go thru and the four is coming out. But then
there are some that I just devour them as they come out.
The Dark Hunter series or Stephanie Plum series for
example I just read once they are out and I am ok. Lady
Whistledown/Bridgerton series, I started with the Duke
and I and when she announced she was doing the 7 others I
knew I was going to get frustrated waiting. But they are
so worth it.

I do like to read series. It gives me a chance to revisit
characters and settings in a story. I tend to most enjoy
reading them from first book onward. Can't think of
frustrations regarding them.
(G. Bisbjerg 12:52pm December 3, 2014)
I love series, and seeing the development of the characters.
What frustrates me is when I get a book that is part of a series I haven't read, but NOT the first book. Some authors like to recap what happened in previous books, but unless it's essential to the character's development in the current book, I think it's overkill.
(Joanne Schultz 5:03pm December 3, 2014)
I love reading series that cover secondary characters,
especially stand alone books.
(Mary Hay 10:02am December 4, 2014)
Of course your latest in the Drake's Rakes series doesn't disappoint! I'm so glad Chuffy is finally getting his girl. He is one of those interesting secondary characters that you meet and instantly know there is more to him that expected. I hope he and Mairead pop back up in Pip's book. Thanks, Eileen!

I love reading series! This one is especially my favorite!!!
(Bonnie Capuano 10:48pm December 4, 2014)
I love reading series. I do like for each story to be
resolved by the end, but don't mind if it picks up in the
next book. The one thing that bothers me the most is when a
character is described in an early book & in a later book
has been totally made over into a different looking
character, but it is still supposed to be the original
(Kathleen Giannone 11:05pm December 4, 2014)
I love series - especially the never-ending ones ;) I
appreciate the well developed over multiple books story
arcs and relationships - it makes the world more real. My
biggest problem is when an author's muse stops inspiring
that particular series and I want more :(
(Vanessa Primer 1:26am December 5, 2014)
I love series books, but hate it when I have to wait to
long for the next installment.
(Jenny Ford 2:06am December 5, 2014)
I love series. The frustation comes in waiting for the next
installment or when the series ends - that's why I love
(Diane Sallans 11:12am December 5, 2014)
I love series. I enjoy finding out what happened in the lives of other characters and am always anxious for the next one in the series to be published. I haven't read any of the Rake books, but I think I would enjoy reading Twice Tempted. If it's a good as it sounds, I'll probably have to go back and read the others in the series.
(Anna Speed 2:39pm December 5, 2014)
I love series and I always read them in order. Sometimes I will
read a couple and then read another book and then come back to
(Denise Austin 6:32pm December 5, 2014)
Finally! My computer stopped fighting me and gave me my password. Thanks Sara and FF for letting me play, and for everybody's answer. I'm delighted I can share my love of series--and my frustrations--with you guys. And yes, sadly, I'm afraid I'm one of those authors who hasn't always managed to get her books out quickly. Especially TWICE TEMPTED, because writing two couples makes it so much more complicated for me, took longer than I wanted. Hopefully Pip and Beau will behave themselves. We'll find out, won't we?
(EILEEn Dreyer 6:41pm December 5, 2014)
I like a good series. I like getting to know characters and what happens in their lives. Disjointed series not so much.
(Laura Gullickson 9:12pm December 5, 2014)
I enjoy a good series, but I'm anal about it...I have to
read them in order.
(Deb Diem 11:55pm December 5, 2014)
I love reading series! Even though I try reading them in order, it doesn't really matter. I enjoy following the character and story development with each new book.
