David Lauriston is struggling to build his reputation in Edinburgh’s privileged legal world. His humble origins are enough of a hurdle, never mind his recent decision to defend a group of weavers accused of treason, prompting speculation that he may harbour radical sympathies. The last thing he should be doing is agreeing to help the brother of one of the convicted weavers find the government agent who caused his brother’s downfall.
David’s personal life is no more successful. Tormented by his forbidden desires for other men, and the painful memories of the childhood friend he once loved, David tries his hardest to live a celibate existence, castigating himself whenever his resolve slips.
But then—into David’s repressed and orderly world—bursts Lord Murdo Balfour.
Cynical, hedonistic and utterly unapologetic, Murdo could not be less like David. Whilst David refuses to entertain the prospect of entering into a loveless marriage for propriety’s sake, Murdo is determined to wed one day—and has no intention of giving up the company of other men when he does so. But as appalled as David is by Murdo’s unrepentant self-interest, he cannot resist the man’s sway.
Murdo tempts and provokes David in equal measure, distracting him from his promise to find the agent provocateur responsible for the weavers’ fate, and forcing him to acknowledge his physical desires.
But is Murdo more than a mere distraction?
Is it possible he could be the very man David is looking for?

Honest Reviews of Provoked (Enlightenment) Book by Joanna Chambers
Top Reader Reviews :
Review by Jackie
To say this is the quintessential Regency period M/M romance series is to underestimate how truly unique and totally engrossing each book is. Yet, I cannot bring myself to review each book (or the 1.5 shot story) individually because I would be exhausted by the end of each review, and would more than likely get a bit bitchy about some comments made by others for each book.
Therefore, indulge me for repeating this review for each book:
This series is different from others in the same genre because it deals mainly with Scotland and its patriots and near ex-patriots. This circumstance alone brings a richness to the historical references, plotlines, brutality and lustfulness that imbues the best of the genre, but goes one step further.
The fact that the cover art is virtually the same for all three books underscores the distinct personalities of both the quintessentially dark Scot aristocrat Lord Murdo Balfour (foreground) and the low country
Review by Daniel
Its very rare that I find a book for sexytimes that also manages to pull at my heartstrings so strongly.I love both these characters, the dynamic between them, the very plausible hurdles they face living as they do as gay men in regency England.Their differing philosophies on how to face their homosexuality is so much of what makes this plot so interesting, the feels so strong.So many romance novels have their characters tumbling into bed together with an immediate serving of happy ever after, cooing and calling each other dearheart.(Probably why I turned to M/M regency – you know whenever a virginal aristocrat girl finally gets her rocks off that everything is winding down to an end of course she’s going to end up with the guy she slept with – "soiled goods" etc.) This is a next level romance novel and I feel very grateful I found it despite the lack of reviews (what a huge disservice btw to this series).I wouldn’t say as another reviewer did that this is
Review by Starr
Worthy of a Masterpiece Theater Production. Rich in historical setting and emotional tension, here is a story that would play out beautifully if ever a drama of homosexual romance could get aired on mainstream television. Until the last few decades, the lives of gay lovers was severely restricted, compromised and in many places illegal. This was all very much the situation in the kingdoms of Scotland and England in the early 1800’s. But with all the colorful social panache of a Jane Austin story, this drama would make compelling viewing. The haughty privileged hid their sexual proclivities in sham marriages and ultra discreet "clubs", while the commoner risked robbery, murder or exposure in dark street by-ways and alcoves.
Born of humble parents, David perceivers to rise above his humble birth and achieve success in law, while struggling with his "sinful" lust for other men. Always guarded and painfully circumspect, he finds temporary satisfaction, only to
