Angelina Williams is in the middle of her
sixth season, at one of the best parties, and really isnít
interested in the current person of interest Ė the new Russian
Count. However when she is brought back into the ballroom by
her mother and then requested to dance by the Count, Angelina
cannot say no. She is amazed to see that Count Roman
Ivanovich resembles the shadow man of her most recent dreams.
Count Roman Ivanovich has been waiting
for Angelina to grow ever since he first met her. Now,
finally his wait is over and all he has to do is get her to
agree to the final steps that will make her his for all
eternity. Time, however, is not on their side. A hunter has
also descended upon London for the season and sees this as his
ultimate moment to take out the Count.
To Tempt An Angel takes place in London during their
season, but not within the circle of the top ton . Angelina
has been haunted by a man she met many years ago and suddenly
finds a man who seems to resemble him. Count Roman has spent
many, many years searching for his mate and then had to wait
until she became a woman. He has no plans to wait any
longer. To Tempt An Angel seemed a bit rushed to me and I had a problem with the
quickness of their meeting, first sexual contact, and then
marriage. I just could not get the feeling they had the
amount of passion that would be necessary to overthrow the
current customs for such a quick resolution. While I did like
that Ms. Bellevaux added a bit of suspense to the story,
again, I just could not find the emotion that should have been
associated with the type of danger at hand. I did like that
the Count made himself wait to approach Angelina until she was
an adult when he could have moved much quicker.
Tempt An Angel is a brief look at how the rest of the ton lived during the
Season Ė something you donít always find .
