"Tempting the Marquess is filled with lively characters and an irresistible story that will keep the reader enchanted from the very beginning." --Lauren Calder, Affaire de Coeur

From the Back Cover

The Weston siblings have been blessed with Shakespearean names and an affinity for impropriety. Prepare to fall in love while discovering how the Westons are won.
While Olivia Weston loves matchmaking and romantic novels, she intends to make a suitable match. But first she wants an adventure, and when given the opportunity to visit a reclusive widower living in a haunted castle, Livvy can't possibly resist.
After his wife's death, Jason Traherne, Marquess of Sheldon, shut his heart to everyone but his son, and until now he has succeeded in maintaining his distance. But there's something about Livy - her unique blend of sweetness and sensuality - that tempts him beyond all reason.
Though there's nothing suitable about the feelings he inspires in her, Livvy can't help falling for the marquess. But can she persuade him to let go of the past and risk his heart again?

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I am a little torn about how to rate Tempting the Marquess. Parts of it were really lovely and then others, due mostly to the heroine, were less than stellar. Overall this rates 3 ½ stars.

Olivia Weston (Livvy) has decided to save a man from himself. She arrives at Lord Jason Traherne's Welsh home in the company of her aunt; Jason is her aunt's stepson. Livvy feels she almost knows Jason through a diary left behind by his deceased wife that she discovered when she was organizing an estate library. Livvy read the diary and came to the decision that Jason needed her.

Jason on the other hand believes he does not need anyone and he is more than put out that Livvy has invited herself to his home. He is reclusive and not welcoming. Moreover, he is sparring quickly with Livvy as she has a tendency to forget that she is a guest in his house and engages in a verbal match with him within a day.

Jason can be chauvinistic but that is a malady most peers possessed in his time period. What distinguishes him from other peers is his deep love and affection for his son and his appreciation for a woman's quick wit. He has a teasing nature with no malicious intent.

Livvy can be trying. I believe she is eighteen or nineteen and she acts like it. This was a bit of a surprise as her inner thoughts are of a much more mature young woman, her actions, though do not match. She is idealistic to the point of being a perfectionist, love has to be perfect with a perfect hero in a perfect setting, and she expects this even though she is far from perfect herself. Livvy is supposed to be rational and a planner yet there is very little forethought in some of her actions.

This is the second book in the series. I really enjoyed the first book, the author's debut, and was excited to see how both the author and the story developed. I am now hooked! Very refreshing writing for a genre that is so plentiful. The dialogue is very witty, I actually laughed out loud in several spots. It is just plain fun to read.

One thing I appreciated is that only a minimal amount of time involved prior characters... if you haven't read the first book, you will have no problems reading this one. However, the first book in the series was such a joy, I highly recommend that you read it; it will give you a little more depth in the story and characters. I was so disappointed when I finished # 2 because I didn't want it to end, I actually went and re-read the first book and enjoyed it just as much the second time!

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the story, the characters and the witty writing. I cannot wait for additional books in the series to come out, they cannot be released fast enough for me!

In 1798 Lady Olivia Weston is about to have her debut London season. A die hard romantic, Olivia is pragmatic as she knows she will marry out of need not desire. However, she can dream of an adventure with one of the hunks who star in her readings.

Olivia and her aunt head to Wales for Christmas. When she meets Lord Jason Traherne, father of an ailing child, she thinks he stepped out of one of her books as a menacing hero. As she tries to understand the man, she falls in love as does he. However, she believes deep in her hurting heart he still loves his late wife and has not moved passed her death.

The latest Weston Regency romance (see Promise Me Tonight) is an engaging tale mostly due to Olivia who is the late eighteenth century version of Bonnie Tyler's song "I Need a Hero". However, she soon learns the other side of holding out for a hero as he has traits that are not endearing to her; on the other hand his kisses are. Sub-genre readers will relish this Weston woman's witty war for love with her reluctant hero.

Olivia Weston is ready for an adventure and when her Aunt Jane invites her to her step son Jason's house, Olivia is ecstatic. Earlier, while organizing the library Livvy stumbles across a diary belonging to Jason's late wife. Livvy is immediately intrigued by its contents. She decides she must meet Jason, a man who has lived the past years in grief, raising his son and pushing everyone else away. Livvy, a romantic at heart, wants to mend Jason, and break him out of his shell.

When Livvy accompanies Aunt Jane and they arrive on his door step, tempers flare. Jason is very suspicious of Livvy and also can't understand why his body starts to betray him. But Livvy's presence soon becomes much more than just an annoyance.

Tempting The Marquess is a cute book but also one that never really drew me in. I found it to be a bit slow and it has a heroine, Livvy that is immature. At times she came across cute, naive, and charming. Other times she grated on my nerves and I found her young ways to be annoying. She has grand notions of saving and rescuing Jason, who she only knows through entries in his late wife's diary. She builds Jason up in her head and sees "fixing him" as a grand adventure. She boldly goes into his house and starts interfering in his life and his son's life. Jason is set-up to be the grief stricken, cold host and at times I think his character forgets that. Their love-hate relationship never really takes hold. Jason seesaws between lusting after Livvy, to guilt over his dead wife. The ending conflict is very predictable as well.

While Livvy didn't sit well with me at times, other times she came across very likable. She is a temptress and very eager to explore the physical side of her attraction to Jason.
