This is the first book that I have read by Lara Temple so I was wondering what to expect. What I did find was a romantic and gorgeous book that completely melted my heart. It was such a delightful story that has a lovely depth to it, there is romance for sure but themes of grief and guilt also play a part within the story.

The chemistry between Nell and Hunter is perfect with a friendship forming first and then moving on to a gorgeous flirtation that was so much fun to see play out. I loved how Nell had picked herself up after the constant pressure and bullying from her family and became a more confident, stronger person than she was. This story has plenty of fun moments but there is also more heart felt scenes especially with Hunter and his tragic past. He is strong, flirty and very charming but he also has this vulnerable side that made me love him even more! He really is a perfect match for Nell but will they get their happy ending? 

I have to mention that there was also a little introduction to Hunter's friends and I really can't wait to read their stories. There is a wonderful charm to this story that will make you smile and sigh while reading. With loveable characters along with a warm and comforting story that is perfect for a lazy afternoon of reading or for the colder evenings.

Lord Hunter's Cinderella Heiress is flirty, sweet and very entertaining!

Five stars from me!

With thanks to Lara Temple for my copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.

When I was fifteen I found a very grubby copy of Georgette Heyer’s Faro’s Daughter in an equally grubby book store. Several blissful hours later I emerged, blinking, into the light of day completely in love with Max Ravenscar and with Regency Romance.

But the love remained one-sided as I progressed through various fascinating but completely unrelated careers in finance and high tech until my mother gave me a firm shove by entering one my many drawer-directed novels into Harlequin’s annual writing contest. To my shocked surprise I not only made it to the top ten but Harlequin commissioned me to write five Regency romances.

I write strong, sexy, and suspenseful regency romances about complex individuals who give no quarter but deliver plenty of passion.
Like every (or most) writers, I would love to hear from you about books (not only mine) and history and whatever you find that makes you love this period and genre.

I live with my  husband and two children who are very good about my taking over the kitchen table for my writing (so I can look out over the garden and dream). I love to travel (especially to places steeped in history) and hike and read as many books as possible (which just about sums up my dream vacation). 

I recently went back to look for that grubby crowded little bookstore but couldn’t quite remember around what corner it was…hopefully it is still there and another girl is in the corner by the window, reading and dreaming…
