Abandoned by his cavalier father at a young age, William de Veres grew up knowing precious little happiness. But William has put the past firmly behind him and as a military hero and noted rake, he rises fast in the ranks of the hedonistic Restoration court. Until he is forced to seek shelter from a young Puritan woman…

The civil wars have cost the once-high-spirited Elizabeth Walters her best friend and her father, leaving her unprotected and alone. She flees an unwanted marriage, seeking safe haven, but what she finds is something she never expected. When her kindness and her beauty bring her to the attention of William, and then the king, she will have a choice to make. After all, can a notorious libertine really be capable of love?

              MY THOUGHTS:

LIBERTINE’S KISS by Judith James is a Historical romance set in the 1800 England. It it well written with depth and detail. It has romance, sensuality, history,healing wounded hearts and souls, foregiveness,finding home and love. The heroine is brave, strong,beautiful and determined. She has been in love with the hero since her childhood.When he falls into her door wounded she helps him survive his wounds,and helps heal his heart and soul.The hero is handsome, fearsome and has a wounded soul and heart. He has also been in love with our heroine since childhood, which has been a lifetime ago. They are reunited when our heroine decides to go to the newly appointed king who was in exile, but is now reinstated. She is trying to get her lands back, which was taken from her by the former king for helping our hero. They embark on an adventure of love, healing and hope. This is a must read. A keeper. It is fast paced page turning love story. I would highly recommend this story. This book was received for review by Net Galleyand details can be found at My Book Addiction and More and HQN.
