AWAKENED BY A KISSLaura Fairleigh needs a husband. If she is to keep a roof over her siblings’ heads, the prim rector’s daughter must wed by her twenty-first birthday. When she finds a mysterious stranger with the face of an angel and the body of Adonis unconscious in the forest and with no memory of his name or his past, she decides to claim him for her own. Little does she know that her fallen angel is really the devil in disguise.
Sterling Harlow, the notorious rakehell known as the “Devil of Devonbrooke,” awakens to the enchanting kiss of a lovely young woman who informs him he is her long-lost betrothed. With her sun-kissed cheeks and smattering of freckles, she looks every inch the innocent, but her curves possess a woman’s allure. When she assures him he is the perfect gentleman, he wonders if he’s lost his wits as well as his memory. He would have sworn he was not a man to be satisfied with mere kisses—especially from lips as sweet and luscious as Laura’s.As he attempts to uncover the truth before their wedding night, A Kiss To Remember ignites a passion neither of them will ever be able to forget....
Laura's papa had tried to warn her. If you sold your soul to the devil, it would only be a matter of time before he came to collect.
But Papa had never warned her the devil would be so beautiful that she would be tempted to surrender that soul without a fight.
I have that warm fuzzy feeling in my chest, the one you get when you finish reading a book that touched your soul. I read this book on a whim because lets be honest I'm a cover whore and the cover on this book didn't really impress me. But the story did, and that's the most important thing. It starts of with a sombre but intriguing prologue. The main character Sterling Harlow is taken away by his grumpy and cruel uncle, a duke, to live with him in his cold home. You see his uncle didn't have an heir but what makes the situation even worse is that his father and mother agreed to this in return for the deed to their home.
Teresa Medeiros is a new author to me but I'm so excited about reading the rest of her books. The mood in this story was consistently lighthearted and even when the subject matter got a little darker the author retained the whimsical feeling I got throughout the book.
Laura Farleigh discovers an unconscious man lying in the woods while she was praying for a husband. The unwavering hand of fate at play? I would have to agree.
Sterling has no idea who he is and Laura seeing an opportunity, begins to spin a lie, but the one thing she isn't lying about is her growing love for this stranger.
He laid two fingers against the softness of her lips, effectively stilling them. "You've spent the past week telling me what I'm supposed to want. Now it's my turn to show you what I do want."
Without giving you a blow by blow account of the story I'll mention what I loved. The supporting characters in this book were just amazing,
Lottie, Laura's little sister with all her kittens was a little terror.
George her little brother was adorable in how he wanted to keep his sisters safe even though he was barely a teenager.
Dower and Cookie were hilarious and surprisingly great parental figures.
The sexual tension between Thanes (Sterling's best friend) and Diana (Sterling's cousin) was palpable I can't wait to read their book).
If I was walking around recommending historical romances to people then this book would definitely be named.
