"a paranormal, historical romance with great period feel"

David Barrett, the Earl of Dunreith, has been in love with his neighbor, Victoria Caldwell, since they were children. Because there are rumors that Victoria plans to accept an offer of marriage, David takes matters into his own hands and sets out to compromise Victoria using a spell. Unfortunately, David has secrets that threaten to tear the couple apart.

ONE FOR LOVE is a paranormal, historical romance with great period feel and wonderful characters. At first, I had doubts about David's character, after all, he uses a spell to aid in his seduction of Victoria. Luckily, David soon redeems himself and becomes a yummy hero--reserved and aloof on the outside with strong hidden depths and passions. Victoria is no shrinking violet and is a great match for David. Even though that is the case, Victoria acts in a way consistent with a regency lady. Kudos to Ms. Wilde for the accuracy of her period details!

All in all, ONE FOR LOVE is highly recommended to the paranormal reader and the regency reader.

Diabolical, deliberate seduction takes some planning...and maybe a little dark magic.

David Barrett, the Earl of Dunreith, has a reputation for being calm, cool and distant. He's the last man anyone would think would compromise a young woman, but he has his reasons--not to mention a very wicked secret he carefully hides from the world.

Victoria Caldwell isn't exactly sure how it happened, but all of a sudden her world is upside down. Apparently the man she's always viewed as a mild-mannered friend is instead a passionate lover, capable of luring her into wild, wanton behavior. Even more bewildering, she finds out nothing about David is as it seems and the enigma both intrigues and frightens her. Is he the intelligent, even-tempered man she's known for years, or something else entirely?

As the past starts to play havoc with the future, both David and Victoria find a single pivoting decision can summon up all forms of demons, if even if the choice is one made for love...
