Enticing Miss Eugenie Villaret by Ella Quinn

Enticing Miss Eugenie Villaret


22090692William, Viscount Wivenly, plans to remain the most eligible of bachelors. He refuses to surrender to the schemes of husband-hunting ladies and matchmaking mamas. Fleeing the pressure of the ton, he's bent on finding refuge in the West Indies. What he finds instead is a fascinating stranger, a woman so unlike those of his society that he can't resist such a beguiling distraction. . .

Determined to let nothing complicate her mission to protect her family's livelihood while covertly rescuing orphaned slave children, Miss EugĂ©nie Villaret does her best to evade suitors. But when dashing William lures her down a path of forbidden adventure and delicious danger, she may be convinced that business can indeed be mixed with pleasure—and persuaded to add passion to her priorities. . .

There are times when I like a domineering hero in romance.  Sherrilyn Kenyon, J.R. Ward, and Celeste Bradley are very good at writing the "asshole turned nice guy" type of character.  I never feel like I want to chew them up and spit them out.  William, on the other hand, is the kind of character I'd dearly love to give a hard kick in the balls.  He is a cad and treats women, especially Eugenie, like crap.  I hated him.  Even after the turning point I never fully liked him or believed that he could so easily change his behavior. 

The plot meandered along at a slow pace and there were times when I had no idea why a certain scene was included in the book because it had no importance to the storyline.  I got very bored with it.

Because I had a hard time keeping interested in this book, I probably wouldn't recommend it to anyone.  It just wasn't for me and I'd think twice about picking up any other books from this series.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for sending me a free copy for review.
