This week, I’m sharing a bit about Dalton’s Temptation. This book is the second story in the trilogy that began with A Most Unusual Princess and ends with The Pauper Prince. Together, they make up a fun trilogy, but each story stands alone as a separate read. (Excerpts, reviews, and summaries of all three books are on my site: www.KelliWilkins.com)
Dalton’s Temptation focuses on the theme of fidelity. Elara wants to test Dalton’s loyalty, so she masquerades as a sultry kharim girl in a pleasure palace. Of course, she gets in over her head and into trouble.
I enjoyed taking Elara out of her element and giving her new challenges and experiences. I also got to show a different side to Dalton’s character as he (and readers) learn about his weaknesses and desires. The unique storyline was an interesting way to showcase Dalton and Elara’s relationship and see how they interact and respond to challenges in their lives.
Dalton’s Temptation was fun to write. It has a little bit of everything: humor, sizzling love scenes, an element of danger, and even a drop of sadness. This book also introduces readers to Elara’s charming, womanizing, “bad-boy” brother, Prince Allan.
When readers ask me if I ever have characters who want to “run away” with a story, I always point to Allan. By the end of Dalton’s Temptation, I knew Allan needed his own story, and so The Pauper Prince was born!
Here’s the plot summary to Dalton’s Temptation:
After only four months of marriage to Princess Elara, Prince Dalton is sent to Emperor Salizar’s “pleasure palace” on business. Not wanting to be left behind, Elara risks her safety and sneaks along on the trip. Aided by her brother, Prince Allan, she disguises herself as one of Salizar’s sultry kharim women and decides to test Dalton’s loyalty.
Masquerading as Oonish, Elara goes out of her way to tempt Dalton at every turn. Despite Dalton’s resolve to resist the indulgent girls, he finds himself falling under the spell of the mysterious Oonish. After nearly giving in to temptation, Dalton discovers Elara’s trickery and turns the tables on her, making her into his submissive playmate.
Here’s what reviewers had to say…
“5 Roses! I thought the first book [A MOST UNUSUAL PRINCESS] was hot, but this one is worth reading. Kelli A. Wilkins did a superb job in this one and introduces us to a new side of Dalton. The beginning was just about Princess Elara, and this time we learn more of Dalton. I loved this story and it’s hard for me to give a Historical Erotica a 5 for the first part and a sequel but Kelli Wilkins did a beautiful job in showing us a princess with stubborn heart to love and a man who completes her in every way.” - Lena, Reviewer, Mybookcravings.com
"A 5! Where do I start about DALTON’S TEMPTATION? For starters, this is part two of a series. Yet, it stands alone. At least that was what Ms. Wilkins told me, and she was right. I didn’t feel as though I missed something from book one or that I felt left out of a secret joke. Her writing style and characters makes me want to read book one (A MOST UNUSUAL PRINCESS). I can’t wait to get a copy of the first book to find out how it all began." - Miranda, Reviewer, BDSM Reviews
“4 Coffee Cups! Ms. Wilkins has created a page turning story that you cannot help but finish in one sitting. Dalton and Elara are unforgettable characters. The sex scenes are hot, hot, hot! The twists and turns make it impossible to figure out what happens next. DALTON’S TEMPTATION is definitely on this reader’s keeper shelf!”- Jenifer, Reviewer, Coffee Time Romance
“DALTON’S TEMPTATION is truly exceptional and first rate! Kelli A. Wilkins is amazing and brilliant with her writing talents. She captures you from the first moment. I totally enjoyed myself reading this book. I for one would love to see another book on this family giving Allan his own story. It would be interesting to see who can tame his wildness.” Sensual Reads.net
