Lauren has created an exquisitely unique love triangle. Gemma believes she loves James yet doesn’t realize she really is in love with Jasper. James the cad wants nothing to do with her leaving Jasper to do his dirty work. Jasper clearly the rogue, but is determined to win the lady’s heart. The characters are powerful clearly ones you will love to hate with James and Jasper or find hilariously funny with Lady Greenley. Rich, detailed storyline, though short, is easy to be caught up in. Not really a chosen genre for me, but enjoyably well written. Will Jasper win Gemma’s love? “Tempted By A Rogue” is destined to be a sensational hit novel.
The story's setting is Midhurst, West Sussex in 1817 where two of the town's resident sons, James Randolph and Jasper Holland having left in their early teens, are returning from eleven years' service together throughout the world in the Royal Navy. Gemma Haverford, after having been wooed by letter all of these years, is expecting to marry James. Unfortunately, James had become disenchanted and asked Jason to write and dissolve the supposed betrothal. Jason, having had some interest in Gemma when they were still youngsters, writes but procrastinates with `breaking off' the relationship. Instead, he continues to write and discovers Gemma's letters to be most intelligent, charming and in accord with his likes and dislikes. Because James has found someone new he wants to marry and has been informed of Jasper's lack of compliance with his request, insists that Jasper compromise Gemma so he will have a sound reason for disengaging from the unwanted relationship. Jasper attempts the seduction, finds himself completely enamored of the young woman, and the ensuing activities provide a charming, titillating tale of unleashed desire complicated by the mental struggle involving the apparent accompanying deceit, deception and betrayal.
The author has managed most adroitly to set forth, and stretch, a relatively simple plot into an extended delightful interlude that romance devotees should find irresistible.
Gemma is considered an almost old maid in her town. Her parents and her closest friend know that she and a local boy, James, promised to marry each other when they were older. James and his best friend Jasper joined the Navy and were away for over ten years. Gemma has been writing to James for the entire time and is madly, passionately in love with him. Little does she know that James no longer intends to marry her. In fact, James wasn't the one writing to her all those years, it was Jasper... and Jasper is madly in love with Gemma.
Jasper and James have returned home and it's time for them to admit to Gemma their deceit. James is now a bitter womanizer and his best friend is a thoughtful, sweet man. It was a lot of fun to follow Gemma and her boys as they admitted their lies and love. Gemma is not a silly,careless girl. She is lovable and spunky.
I thoroughly enjoyed this short book. Vivid, visual and vivacious are the best descriptive words I can use to describe the writing, the characters and the story. Definitely going on my list to books to read when I'm in bed sick and needing to be cheered up.
The tension in these pages is palpable, and there was considerable time spent in detailing the setting, providing backstory, keeping the flow of the narrative even, and detailed edits to sharpen certain sections. I think this was a labor of love, and while it has plenty of traditional romance novel elements, it is a higher caliber - and certainly a more interesting story. Nicely Done.
