REVIEW: Bound by Bliss (Bound and Determined #2) By, Lavinia Kent

Lady Bliss Danser, daughter of the Duke of Mirth, is a scandal waiting to erupt. Which is why her highly conventional brother wants to saddle her with Stephan Perth, Earl of Duldon, the only man he thinks will marry her. Worse, Stephan keeps threatening to punish her, to teach her just how a woman should behave. His words may cause Bliss to tingle in the strangest places, but that doesn’t mean she likes the man himself.

Stephan has secretly desired Bliss for years, but he knows how close he is to losing his beloved. Careful not to rile her impetuous heart, he promises only to aid Bliss in her search for another fiancĂ©. And if she’s determined to understand the male body first, he’s happy to comply in that regard as well. However, she must follow his rules or face the consequences. Slowly he takes Bliss to the darker, steamier side of his world . . . where she realizes that Stephan is everything she’s ever wanted.

Bound by Bliss is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

Bliss Danser is not ready to marry. She has hoped to hold out for another few years and then she would buy a house and disappear. She had never been one of those girls who had dreamed about getting married and having children. She likes her freedom and she has seen what falling in love can do to a person. Her brother is willing to set her up with the one person she definitely can’t see herself with and now the clock is ticking to find someone other than Lord Duldon. Bliss was a vivacious heroine. She was willing to try anything once in and out of the bedroom. She was different then the women around her. She was a little but rebellious and was ok with being alone.

Lord Duldon is ready to marry. He has resigned himself to sleeping with women with masked to get the kind of sex he craves. Lord Duldan has set his eyes on Bliss. When Bliss started asking questions and he was more than willing to help her explore. He is willing to do whatever to takes to get Bliss and have fun while doing it. Stephen was a great character. He was sweet and romantic with Bliss. He was really willing to do whatever he can to change her mind about marrying him.

The romance was amazing. There was enough steaminess to keep you fanning through the whole book. Stephen and Bliss worked really well together. Their chemistry was sweet and spicy. They challenged each other and made each other work to make the relationship work. The plot of the book moved swiftly and kept me interested with every turn of the page. Bound by Bliss was a sweet and steamy romance that keeps you turning the page. I would definitely recommend this book to romance readers who like historical romances with steamy slightly taboo scenes for that time era. It was a very great read and I will definitely be picking up more form this author.
