Between the Devil and Desire

Between the Devil and Desire  - Lorraine Heath I am not certain how I feel about this book.

On one hand, great writing. Lorraine Heath writes beautifully. I loved the letter Lovingdon wrote to Jack at the end of the story. Such eloquence.

On the other hand, I do not feel like that I know Jack and Olivia at all. I can hardly imagine them, no mental pictures, no personalities, despite Heath's outstanding proses. I can only conclude that I have no emotional connection to either character, which pretty much killed the book for me.

Thankfully, Luke and Catherine from [b: In Bed with the Devil|2634570|In Bed with the Devil (Scoundrels of St. James, #1)|Lorraine Heath|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1322214331s/2634570.jpg|2659280] made a few appearances in this book. I am so much more emotionally invested in them than Jack and Olivia, which is why I really don't want to rate this book 3 stars, as it should be. I rated Luke and Catherine's book 4 stars and this book.......1 star difference just wouldn't do.

So my apologies to Jack and Olivia. It is not you, it is me.
