    One thought on “Tempting Eden

    1. Nikki Brandyberry

      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 square in the chest. To be completely taken advantage of by your 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 he [...]

      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 emotionally/sexually 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 whethe [...]

      Very dark with descriptions emotional/physical 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 more by this author.

      This story happened May 1814 going forward. Major Stuart Hartford was proper, priest-like and"abstained from baser urges." Eden was awkward,ugly, plain and prickly and actively disliked men(according 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 [...]

      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 a year later and I just reread this story and found myself drawn back to the deliciously decadent and saucy scorcher of a read.What do you do with one of the tons most perfect nobleman and an imperfect woman that is about to turn his “Holy Hartford” persona upside down?Eden Emery is the reason I [...]

    6. Lynette

      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 quickly 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 [...]

      I'm really torn about this book. The description of the story is: to save her 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 [...]

    8. BRNTerri

      Boy, was this one dark story with a heroine who had an unusual past. We got to hear about it through book excerpts what were written by her sex partner, Ivor. They were graphic and a bit disturbing. Eden really had no choice in the matter when she began a sexual relationship with him four years earlier, at the age of eighteen. Even though she had to do it, she loved every minute of it.I didn’t really sense a love connection between Eden and Stuart even though we were told they loved each other [...]

      When I read outside my comfort zone and still find myself engaged with the characters and their story, I know I’m in the hands of a gifted writer. This was my experience with Tempting Eden. It is far darker, edgier, and more erotic than the books I usually choose to read. Had it not been written by a friend, I probably would have passed on this one, but I knew enough about Eden and Hart to be captivated by their story and to want to see them get their HEA. At its heart, Tempting Eden is a stor [...]

    10. Noelle

      Tempting Eden is marked as an erotic story but to me it's more romantica. I mean that the story isn't mainly about the sex between the H/h it's more about the journy that Eden has to make to find her selfworth after years of being emotionaly and sexualy abused by her stepfather. Margret Rowe used most of the book to show how Eden comes to terms with her past and how she developes and learns to love herself. She didn't have Eden fall in love and all of the sudden become a whole and emotionaly hea [...]

    11. Virginia Campbell

      It's no secret that I adore Maggie Robinson "aka" Margaret Rowe. She is a wonderful storyteller in a nicely naughty way! The storyline for "Tempting Eden" is not one that I would usually choose, but I trust Maggie/Margaret's voice as an author. "Tempting Eden" drew me in from the beginning, and then it spun me around several times before landing me in a very involving romance. The seducer and the seduced often trade places in this compelling story, and hearts are laid bare as souls' darkest secr [...]

    12. SaturNalia

      Beautiful cover, interesting story line. So where did this book go wrong? Easy answer, the hero of the story. Every character was ten times smarter then he was. Said inappropriate things at the wrong time. Accused the heroin of being a slut and lier, even when he had proof she was innocent. Very difficult to read when you want to kill the hero. So what did the heroin see in him? I have no idea!!

    13. Jo (My House of Books)

      This starts in a horrible, horrible situation; then the narrative changes to lighter (almost like Mistress by Mistake, which is by the same author under a different pen name). The second half of the book seemed similar to books I'd read before, Mistress by Mistake and The Surrender of a Lady by Tiffany Clare.

    14. Sorcha Mowbray

      I enjoyed this book. I did have some issues with the graphic nature of the abuse scenes. It's just not what I want to see in my erotic romance, though I do understand it served a purpose. I certainly understood Eden's humiliation and misery. Overall it was a good read.

    15. Lisa Baffi

      I loved this book. It had a beautiful love story, with triumph over abuse. the scenes were explicit, but flowed right along with the story. It was one of the best historical erotica I have read in a long time.

    16. PNR

      I liked this ok. It mostly centers around Eden dealing with having been abused, and how that impacts her sexuality, and that was handled in a way I really appreciated. But overall it didn't particularly wow me. Maybe I am getting over the theme of abused/traumatized heroines? (3.5 stars)

    17. Nastassia

      I found it difficult reading the scenes between Eden and Ivor, I had to skim through these parts. I liked how Eden develops throughout the book.
