The Earl of Devonwood, Griffin Nash, has a gift. Or as he sees it, a curse. He can see the future when he touches an object. The vision always resolves itself within 12 hours, so when he gets a Sending from Emmaline Farnsworth’s pencil showing Griffin their passionate embrace, he’s both turned on and appalled. Emmaline is his brother Theodore’s choice for a bride though she hasn’t given him an answer yet. Betraying his beloved brother is not in the cards, but his visions always come true. And yet he feels something for Emmaline he’s never felt before. What’s a guy to do?

An historical romance with some psychic ability thrown in is always a favorite of mine. This is the 3rd book in the Touch of Seduction series and it’s just as good as the others. The writing is great, the characters are excellent, the plot is a good one and the chemistry between Emmaline and Griffin is off the charts. There is humor, too and I have to say how much I love Baxter the butler. Griffin’s friends are a bit barmy and it’s sad that he doesn’t have some better ones, but if they had been then there wouldn’t be much of a story. This book, and in fact the whole series, is a great way to be entertained.

    1. Me, too! Though it's not a lot of paranormal like some books (nothing wrong with a lot, I like them all), it's just enough to spice up a decent historical. :)
