 About the author:

    Liz Cole was born and raised in a small town in upstate New York. Her love of romance—the steamier the better—began in her early teens, but it wasn’t until she left her job as a secretary to dedicate herself to being a stay-at-home mom to her to young children that her writing career began. It started with a story rolling around in her head which refused to be ignored. Desperate to turn her mind to other things, Liz sat down, hoping to exorcise the ‘demon’, and wrote her first novel. Since then, she has been plagued with other stories demanding to be told. Who knew that two jobs could be so fulfilling?
     She now lives in North Carolina with her husband, two children, two cats, and three dogs.

My review:

  This is definitely an ADULT READ.

     Persuading Prudence isn't a very long book (196 pages) but it is a very good book. And I just have to say the cover is gorgeous. As soon as I seen the cover I wanted it. Then I read the synopsis and new I had to have it. 

    When I first started reading this book it felt like a guilty pleasure. In the beginning it is very erotic but as I continued to read it became very sweet and romantic. Liz sets up her scenes very well. It was easy for me to slip back into time and picture the characters just as she's described.

    I really enjoy this time period when men were real gentlemen and women were proper. But I really love when the main female character is set apart from the caddishness of high society in a time when everyone put on a false smile and hid in corners gossiping. A woman who is not concerned with how to procure a marriage to raise her self in status and wealth. Pru is just that. She is a very smart and strong women who is not easily swayed by a man or her own emotions. She is witty, headstrong and passionate and always tries to keep a clear head. I really enjoyed taking a little time out from my normal genre to read this book. It was a very light-hearted read for the most part. I do wish it had been longer I would have liked to have seen where the story could have gone.

    This is an A+  Steamy Historical Romance that i would recommend to anyone 18+ years who wants to read a fun, very sexy romantic read.
