Book Description

28 Oct 2005
Award-winning author Jillian Hunter weaves another enthralling tale in which the path down the aisle is paved with startling twists of fate . . . and temptation.

Lord Heath Boscastle’s attraction for Julia Hepworth begins with a bang. She shoots him at a hunting party–accidentally, of course. Though the shot grazes his shoulder, her beauty pierces his heart. Sparks fly soon after when they find themselves dangerously close to a compromising position. Too inexperienced to understand such overwhelming emotions, Heath and Julia part ways.

Now, years later, Heath is a high-ranking intelligence officer, asked to protect his commander’s fiancée, Julia, while he chases down an elusive spy. Heath quickly regrets his promise when he meets Julia again–and their mutual desire still burns hotter than ever. Of course he will protect her. There is danger in the air. And Heath would never think of betraying his friend, until he learns that Julia herself has been betrayed. Suddenly seduction Boscastle style is the name of the game. Yet Julia has a trick or two up her own sleeve–and is determined to be a player, and not a mere pawn, in his wicked game.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Bodcastles 8 July 2005
By Detra Fitch TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Six years ago Julia Hepworth met Lord Heath Boscastle when she shot him. But that did not stop the two from being dangerously attracted to one another. They were almost caught in a very compromising position. So they quickly parted ways, but never forgot each other.
Now Julia is the fiancée to Sir Russell Althorne, Heath's commanding officer. Russell is chasing Armand Auclair, a French spy that one tortured Heath to near insanity before Russell rescued him. Russell calls in the debt of honor. Heath is to protect Julia while Russell is away, in case Armand sends someone to harm her. But Heath and Julia both know that they can't be in the same room without falling into each other's arms.
*** There are some very colorful secondary characters in this tale. Julia's aunt, Hermia, actually steals the show a few times! You will also get to see how Grayson and Jane (from a previous novel in the Boscastle series) is doing. As for Julia, she is a widow when she meets Heath again, no innocent miss fresh from the school room. This makes the romance between the two main characters explosive. All-in-all, this is not the best story in the Boscastle series, but well worth your time to pick up and read. ***

Lord Heath Boscastle has never forgotten Julia Hepworth - possibly because the first time they met, she shot him in the shoulder! While tending his wounds, the pair enjoy on a very nearly compromising afternoon. Too young to understand the overwhelming passions, the pair part.

Years later Heath, now a decorated war hero, is asked to protect Julia by his former army commander - who is now her fiancé - while a dangerous French spy is captured. Heath soon regrets his decision as the passion that engulfed the pair so many years ago is burning brighter than ever before. And when Julia's fiancé's indiscretions come to light, Heath decides it's time to finish what they started all those years ago.

This is the third in Jillian Hunter's Boscastle Family series (after The Seduction of an English Scoundrel and The Love Affair of an English Lord) yet it does stand entirely on it's own so there is no need to have read the other books in the series to understand this one.

I did enjoy this book but there were a few problems with it that stopped me from giving it more than 3 stars.

Both Heath and Julia are excellently well-rounded characters that play well off each other and never fall into the trap of having ridiculous misunderstandings or random attacks of stupidity. There is little in the way of sensuality until near the end of the book when it comes out in full force as if to make up for the beginning of the book. That's not really a complaint though!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved It 10 Oct 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
My summary of the book - Heath is requested to look after Julia while her fiancé is away but they have a secret past and it comes flooding back when they meet again. Heath vows to protect her from danger but his feelings for her come back and when he finds out she has been betrayed he is determined to seduce her and make her his at last.

Thoughts on the characters - Julia is very amusing and outrageous member of the town after being known for shooting a man while living in India and when Heath comes back into her life she manages to engage them into a scandal. She has never forgot Heath and relived their secret afternoon in her mind ever since and when she sees him again she can't stop her feelings for him growing. She is very independent and believes she can look after herself but deep down she doesn't really mind having Heath around protecting her but she just can't stop her desire for him whenever they are in private and gives in to him.
Heath had his life in order but then he is asked to protect Julia who he never forgot and as he spends more and more time with he wants her more. He realises that she is the woman for him and when he finds out about her fiancé not quite being true he is determined to win her for himself. He very strong man who went through a lot when he was in the war which makes him protective and determined to finish the danger that is threatening both him and Julia.

Overall thoughts - Loved this one. It was amusing to find out all the things Julia had done and still doing and how she manages to affect the reserved Heath. When desire gets involved between the two of them it gets very hot and you fall in love along with them.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Conclusion - Leaves You Wanting More! 28 Jun 2005
By L. Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In THE WEDDING NIGHT OF AN ENGLISH ROGUE, we meet yet another Boscastle family member in Jillian Hunter's conclusion to her latest trilogy. Heath Boscastle is every bit as much fun as Grayson and Chloe had been in the previous books, THE SEDUCTION OF AN ENGLISH SCOUNDREL and THE LOVE AFFAIR OF AN ENGLISH LORD.

Six years after Heath Boscastle encounters Julia Hepworth, he is asked to be her bodyguard by his commanding officer, Russell Althorne. Seems Althorne saved his life so Heath owes him a favor. Little does Althorne know that Heath and Julia had a romantic encounter that neither has been able to forget in the ensuing years.

Reluctantly Heath agrees and the rekindling of their romantic feelings begins. But this is more than a typical historical romance. Hunter likes to keep the reader guessing, so she adds a bit of suspense. Seems Althorne is on the heels of a diabolical villain, Armond Auclair, a Frenchman who enjoys torturing his captives. Heath had been captured by Auclair and barely survived, only to be rescued by Russell Althorne and a friend and fellow soldier, Hamm. Althorne believes Auclair is in France, but when Julia begins to have encounters with a stranger, Heath wonders if Auclair isn't behind the meetings.

Jillian Hunter brings back some of her characters from the two previous books, much to my happiness. Grayson Boscastle and his lovely wife, Jane, show us that life has not changed for them. They are still witty, fun, and very much in love. Unfortunately we were only given a glimpse of Chloe and Dominick, but I'm hoping Hunter gives us a glimpse into their lives in the future.

Hunter has created the Boscastles who rival Nora Roberts' MacGregor clan. Each Boscastle is unique, but all possess the verve for life that set them apart from others. Seldom is the reader entertained to this extent by the shenanigans of so many amusing people. The Boscastle's knack for finding themselves in interesting but scandalous situations will leave you laughing. One excellent example is Julia having her nude caricature of Heath stolen and then published in a pamphlet distributed all over London. It was pure enjoyment each time someone mentioned that drawing to Heath and I loved reading about him squirming his way into an explanation that would not disgrace he or Julia.

Jillian Hunter continues to shine with THE WEDDING NIGHT OF AN ENGLISH ROGUE. Her humor is at the forefront and leaves the reader wanting more at the end of the book. I hope she continues with the dramatics of this energetic family in the near future!

5.0 out of 5 stars ...lick your lips...uummm 28 Aug 2005
By D. Lane - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I picked this book up and devoured it in a day. The story grabbed me from the start, saucy characters, and great plot twists. It is a fun, escape from reality read.This is a story of unrequited love and passion that will keep you glued to it till end. The dialogue was Hunter at her best...witty and amusing. The plot moved along at a great pace. Full of enjoyable supporting characters and stories.Both characters felt "real" and made me believe they were in love with one another deeply. Both had great senses of humor too, which is always a plus. This book had everything you need to create a good romance: a dashing hero, a beautiful heroine and, most of all...PASSION! This book is sharp and fast-moving. Filled with Lovable characters, exciting and not too heavy action-mystery twists. Lots of laugh out-loud, I-can't-believe-they-did-that scenes and oh so plenty of heart warming moments. This was just the kind of romance novel I love. Wonderful characters. Characters that seems real because they are not perfect-something most novels like this lack. I absolutely loved this book. The author has a great gift in her ability to develop characters. I must have laughed a hundred times and I absolutely couldn't put the book down until I was finished. Wonderfully written! And very sexy Historical Romance book. I loved, loved ,loved this book!!!

This book is by far my favorite of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very romantic - I really loved this book. 11 Oct 2006
By J. Brennan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
For me this was the kind of book I truly love to read. The couple had fallen in what appeared to both of them to be lust several years before when neither of them were quite sure of the others true feelings. But they both lived with their romantic encounter and it never truly left them. They both regretted that they had not taken a few different actions afterwords that might have changed the course of their lives. So six years later Julia and Heath are once again thrown together although she is engaged to another, a man named Russel. Russel has asked Heath to guard Julia while he chases after a French spy. Heath cannot believe it. He is supposed to guard this woman that he has not forgotten, and has measured all other women since. Soon the couple will be forced to test their feelings for each other once again. It is just so romantic and sexual and heated. You can feel this couple just explode right off the pages. I loved how they both remembered their encounter and they both truly regretted that they had not been honest with their feelings. It is great that they are given this second chance at love. The Boscastle men are one sexy charming family of rogues that seem to be absolutely wonderful husband material when they find the right woman. For Heath no other woman but Julia will do and he truly had me melting for him as he seduced Julia right into his bed! Great sexy historical romance!!!
