Review

Sit down and make yourself comfortable before picking up this newest release from Sara Lindsey, TEMPTING THE MARQUESS, because once you turn the first page you probably won’t be going anywhere until you’ve finished. From the first word to the last, her story captivates and holds the reader in thrall, page after page.

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?

We first met Olivia “Livvy” Weston in Sara Lindsey’s debut novel PROMISE ME TONIGHT in the role of the charming younger sister, with a love for adventure and a heart of pure gold. She’s also rather fond of stories about gothic heroes and heroines, so when she stumbles across something relating to her aunt’s reclusive step-son, Jason Traherne, that leaves her intrigued, she’s determined to meet the mysterious Marquess—whether he wants to meet her or not.

From the first word to the last, her story captivates and holds the reader in thrall, page after page.

From the moment they first meet Jason feels threatened by the pocket-sized Venus who seems to have the ability to get past the protective shell he’s built around his heart without even trying. Despite the heartbreak and betrayal in his past that forced him to emotionally withdraw from everyone but his young son, he can’t help being drawn to Livvy’s warm heart and spirited nature no matter how hard he tries to deny it.

It would be neglectful of me not to mention the fact while these two are working through the emotional hurdles required in achieving their happy ending, there is also a sexual tension that cuts like a Ginsu Knife! You know when that “special” moment arrives it’s going to be nuclear. (It is, btw) Sara Lindsey’s special knack for writing intimate scenes that not only incredibly steamy (Boy Howdy!) but, charmingly playful as well, can only be described as brilliant.

With the Weston Series, Sara Lindsey has struck 24k gold and we, as readers, are the ones to reap the rewards as she continues to create stories that are truly unforgettable and a true pleasure to enjoy.
