Book Description

Lara Temple offers you a taste of the forbidden in this sexy Regency romance.

This very handsome earl…Is the one man she cannot fall for…

War widow Lily Walsh has left her aristocratic family behind, but she can’t deny her younger sister’s request to come to London to meet her fiancé. Though not a love match, Lord Sherbourne is kind, amusing and ideal for her sister on paper. But as Lily gets to know him, she’s finding him alarmingly attractive! And the forbidden look in the earl’s eye shows the feeling is mutual…

From Harlequin Historical: Your romantic escape to the past.

Lily had a problematic relationship with her mom and eloped at 17 with a soldier. After her husband died, she remained distant from her family but agreed to join them in London to meet her sister’s new fiance.

Her sister’s engagement was not a love match, but her fiance, Lord Sherborne, was content with his choice despite his fiancee’s complicated family.

Lord Sherborne was such a gentleman! I loved him from page one. He was misguided in his marriage ambitions, but he was always honorable, even when he realized his mistake.

The falling for your sister’s man trope is not always my favorite, but I think this one was well done. There was the right amount of guilt, no cheating, and the tension was very satisfying.

Another great read by Lara Temple.

About the Author

Lara Temple writes strong, sexy regency romances for Harlequin Mills & Boon about complex individuals who give no quarter but do so with plenty of passion.

When she was fifteen Lara found a very grubby copy of Georgette Heyer’s Faro’s Daughter in an equally grubby book store. Several blissful hours later she emerged, blinking, into the light of day completely in love with Regency Romance but it took three decades of various fascinating but completely unrelated careers in finance and high tech before she returned to her first love.

Lara lives with her husband and two children who are very good about her taking over the kitchen table for her writing (so she can look out over the garden and dream). She loves to travel (especially to places steeped in history) and read as many books as possible. She recently went looking for that crowded little bookstore but couldn’t quite remember around what corner it was…hopefully it is still there and another girl is in the corner by the window, reading and dreaming…
