Editorial Reviews

Review

"Lindsey demonstrates a deft hand with historical romance." --Bette-Lee Fox, Library Journal

"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

"An enchanting and entertaining read. ... The characters are endearing, their romance steamy and their battle of wits will keep readers engaged until the last kiss." --Maria Ferrer, RT Book Reviews

"As decadent and delicious as a hot fudge sundae--indulge yourself!" --NYT Bestselling Author CHRISTINA DODD

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.

After reading A Rogue for All Seasons (Weston Family), which I loved, I decided to go back and read the previous 2 books in this series. The first, Promise Me Tonight: A Weston Novel, wasn't bad but this one wasn't as good. I can see why the author's publishers became problematic. I say 'Well done!' to the author for sticking to her guns and going ahead and self-publishing 'A Rogue' because she's improved and matured in her writing and definitely worth keeping track of in the future. Having said all of that, I have to say that this book wasn't great.

I'm never a fan of stories where the H has been madly in love with a dead wife. In my opinion, it's then incredibly difficult to compete with a dead, beautiful and forever perfect spouse. In this case our H is so busy protecting his heart that the new h is on a collision course with hurt. It's hard to describe the ups and downs of this book but in the very end, the author does redeem the H, in so far as he says that he wants only to look at the future now with his h, but I'm left wondering if it was too little, too late. Never mind, I know that the series goes on and the next book is awesome. Thank heavens I read the best book first and eagerly await the next in the series. If I'd read book 2 first, I doubt I'd have read any further books in the series.

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!

Not as good as the first in this series. I really tried to like this book. There was too much monologue between the Characters , which caused me to do a lot of skimming. There really is no romance for the whole first half of the book. And no significant plot. I have to say I still enjoyed how the author develops the characters. However, she could have done more with this story. Certain points were to much writing about nothing. Fillers. But I still plan to read the next in this series. Henry's story. Maybe it will be better.

I ran across this series while searching for another author. The storyline seemed interesting so I decided what the check. If I don't like them, I don't have to read them.
Needless to say, it was a pleasant surprise. The writing is excellent and all of the characters are adorable. Especially, the children. I read somewhere a comparison between Sara Lindsey and Julia Quinn. So not fair. They may be similar, but nothing alike. It is not fair to compare.
Needless to say, you must read Izzy`s book before you read Lizzy`s. It is a s we does beat read in order since they seem to overlap and you my feel a little lost I'd you don't.
In short, I have read the first two and a boy to start the third. Both of the ones I have read so far are heartwarming funny stories that will make you smile, cry and wish it was you. There are numerous characters and they are all written well.
For someone I had never heard of, I enjoy her work very much. Red and Blue should have had a bigger role though. If you are confused about that, I suggest you read the book. ;)
