4.0 out of 5 stars An innkeeper and a treasure hunt, 10 Mar 2009
This review is from: Temptation and Surrender LP: A Cynster Novel (Cynster Novels) (Paperback)
'Temptation and Surrender' is another in Stephanie Laurens' Cynster series, although the hero, Jonas Tallent, is related to the Cynster clan through marriage and they play a fairly minimal part in the story. Jonas is living back out in the country near the village of Colyton and trying to get to grips with being a landowner - including finding a decent innkeeper.

When a young lady, Emily Beauregard, comes to apply for the job of innkeeper, Jonas accepts her for the position. He is immediately attracted to her and realises very early on that something doesn't quite add up about her story and her references for the job. As he gets to know Emily more he realises there is a very special spark between them, one they both feel.

But Emily and her brother and sisters have secrets that they dare not entrust to anyone else. Their arrival in Colyton isn't accidental and they hope to reverse their fortunes by finding the Colyton treasure. Only where should they look? And can Emily keep her younger siblings safe from their nasty uncle?

The romance side of this book was a very gentle falling-in-love story without the usual misunderstandings and fallings out that are so often found in this sort of story. Both hero and heroine were appealing characters and it was a gentle read. The 'baddie' wasn't at all difficult to spot and the treasure hunt felt, at times, a little half-hearted, but it was an enjoyable read and will no doubt appeal to Laurens' fans and new readers alike.
