Hi everyone! I have a stop on the What A Lady Most Desires blog tour today. There is a review of the book and a giveaway for you all.

What a Lady Most Desires
The Temberlay Series # 3 
By: Lecia Cornwall 
Releasing August 26th, 2014
Avon Romance 

On the night before the final battle against Napoleon, Lady Delphine St. James finds herself dancing with the one man she has always wanted, Major Lord Stephen Ives. He makes it clear he has no time for a lady he sees as flirtatious and silly, but as the call to arms sounds, she bids him farewell with a kiss that stirs them both. When he returns gravely injured, she is intent on caring for him, even if his surly behavior tests her patience. 

After the battle, Stephen is not only wounded and blind, but falsely accused of cowardice and theft. The only light in his dark world is Delphine, the one woman he never imagined he could desire. But she deserves more than he can give her. 

As their feelings deepen and hidden enemies conspire to force them to part forever, can their love survive the cruelest test of all? 

My Review
Lady Delphine could marry many men but she has turned them all down. She will not marry without love and her heart is set on Major Lord Stephen Ives. Stephen doesn't look at her the same way. He has had his heart broke. The call to go to war send the men to the battle field but Delphine sends Stephen away with a goodbye kiss. It is a kiss that makes him look at her different. Stephen is injured in battle and Delphine helps nurse him back to health but he is blind now. He is also facing a scandal but he has one bright spot in his life Delphine. She makes him see the beauty that is all around without his vision. As the two fall for each other Stephen believes he will never be good enough for her and pushes her away. He may have pushed her to far and into the arms of another man. Now he has to see if she is what he truly wants forever.

Delphine is a great character. She won't be rushed into marriage and even if she is a Lady she is willing to get dirty to help others. She follows her heart and tries to help many. I like her she is spunky and outgoing. Stephen I have to say took almost 80 percent into the book before I liked him. From the start he is moody and sullen and I really couldn't see what Delphine saw in him. He had some moments where he seemed sweet and caring but they were in-between his bipolar like attitude. He did turn it around and was a nice guy but I never got to feeling more than a like for him.

 If you like romances with a great female character you will really enjoy this one. Delphine made this book for me. She was simply amazing the whole book. There is a mystery going on that I figured out pretty quick but it still didn't take anything away from the book. I enjoyed seeing Delphine bring Stephen out of his funk and how passionate she is with him. She only seems to want the best for him. Seeing do whatever she could to clear his name even after he hurt her showed how great she is. I am sure many historical romance fans will enjoy this one.
