Book Description

A TEMPTING DIVERSION
Things have always fallen into place for Richard Moore, Earl of Raleigh. His good looks, abundance of charm, and the small matter of being heir to a marquisate make him quite the catch. So when a delectable young woman wants nothing to do with him, he can’t help but seize the irresistible challenge.

AN UNLIKELY COURTSHIP
Jane Bunting knows all about responsibility—she has managed to support herself and her brother with their bakery—but she knows nothing of excitement or passion. When dashing Lord Raleigh crosses the threshold of her shop, she has no idea of the potential danger to her reputation…or to her heart.

AN IMPOSSIBLE MATCH
Neither imagined things would go so far—until the night their worlds collide, irrevocably changing both their lives. But when duty calls for Richard, and with everything Jane's worked for suddenly at stake, will their taste for scandal be their downfall?


Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for MORE THAN A STRANGER:

“This sweet treat of a romance will entrance you with its delicious humor, dollop of suspense, and delectable characters. It'll make your mouth water!”—New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries
 
More Than a Stranger is more than a romance—it’s a witty and engaging love story that had me turning pages well into the night, just so I could find out what would happen next. It’s a truly captivating tale of two headstrong friends who become much more to each other than they could have imagined.”—Lydia Dare

4.0 out of 5 stars endearing characters December 7, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
4.5 Stars
Reviewed by ANN & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

With endearing characters, eloquent writing and a spoonful of charm, you've got the perfect recipe for the perfect read! ~ Under the Covers

Richard Moore, Earl of Raleigh is no stranger to a life of scandal and carnal pleasures. He indulges often and isn't afraid to use his charm to get what he wants. However, life has seemed rather dull lately and it isn't until he attempts to be a hero that things go terribly wrong for him. A shrill shriek catches his attention and when his eyes land on a large, roughened man and a wide-eyed woman, Richard reacts impulsively and tackles the man to the ground to prevent him from hurting the poor lady.

Soon he finds that the lady was in fact not in any sort of trouble, but simply very excited to see his cousin. Worse yet is the fact that the lady he has attempted to save is now blaming him for the damaged done to her shop as he fought the man. Now, it seems that Richard cannot complain of his life being uneventful as the beauty pointing her dainty little finger at him both infuriates and intrigues him. Richard makes it his next goal to learn more about Jane Bunting.

Erin Knightley delivers a splendid sequel to the Sealed with a Kiss series. I was ecstatic to learn that Richard was getting a book next. He made such an impression in the first book that I just had to know what would happen to him. Knightley creates a charming story for Jane and Richard that I couldn't help but smile and even laugh out loud at some scenes. This is partly due to the mess that Richard and Jane get themselves into and also partly due to the way Knightley writes her books.

5.0 out of 5 stars WARNING: Do Not Read On An Empty Stomach! June 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What is funnier than a self assured rogue with the ability to attain any woman realizing a simple baker is immune to his charm? Richard Moore is so sure that Jane Bunting is under attack that he jumps into save her. He's so busy patting himself on the back that he doesn't notice that all her anger is directed at him. What does an Earl do when the same young lady shows up at his house the next day to drop off a peace offering? The old saying," The way to a mans heart is through his stomach," definitely applied here.

Did you ever read a book that had parts you knew wouldn't happen but the book had such a strong hold on you it just didn't matter? That was my experience with this book. I have read books where the Hero is a rogue and he can have any lady he chooses and does a complete turn around and I just stated in another review that I was tired of reading that tired out theme.

What made this different for me was the Earl Pays for baking lessons from Jane and it's not to seduce her but to pay her back so she can fix the damages done to her establishment and because he wants to better understand what about this lady makes it impossible to get her off his mind. He also takes his sister to the lessons as well. We know an Earl would not get his hands dirty with such tasks, and yet you have to see what happens.

The Earl boxes and is use to physical activity but a couple of hours make his shoulder hurt to the point he can barely lift it? I didn't care because the man was use to having everything done for him to see him come to the realization that you actually work up a sweat and that graters bite, ovens are hot was too funny to resist.

I have read funnier books but this one just makes you feel good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Baking Hijinks December 7, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm super excited to bring to you the latest release in A Sealed with a Kiss series by Erin Knightly. Anyways, I really did enjoyed this story and I think A Taste for Scandal was even better than More Than a Stranger. Here's what's it about and what I loved about it.

Jane Bunting owns a lovely little bakery and loves to turn out tasty little pastry. However, her world gets turn upside down when a certain lord attacks her dear sweet cousin in her shop.

Richard Moore, Earl of Raleigh, believes he is coming to rescue a damsel in distress, but he finds a harridan. Come on you would act like a harridan if an unknown stranger came barging in and attacking your cousin? The best way to describe Richard is a take charge and ask question later. That doesn't fly over well.

All right, A Taste for Scandal had me snickering from the get go. Truly a charming read, and I adored the story. I mean you have to enjoy a story where the heroine is a baker who makes marvelous creations. Then you have Richard, who is a unrepentant rake and enjoys the attention of women. Yet, whenever he's around Jane he has a tendency to stick his foot in his mouth. You gotta love when a charming hero can't charm his way out of everything. Then you have Jane who has a distaste for the aristocracies attitude towards others and I completely understand. Yes, Richard has his work cut out when it comes to wooing Jane. However, during their time together Richard learns something about himself and tries to become a better man.

An amusing read with baking hijinks that will keep you entertain. So, if you are looking for a sweet read, you should checkout A Taste for Scandal. Before I go, I will leave you my absolutely favorite line from the book: "Guard your oven door well, my dear."

I hope y'all are enjoying this fine Sunday and enjoy the books that you read.
