I'm delighted to be one of the blogs starting off a brand new blog tour for Lord Ravenscar's Inconvenient Betrothal by Lara Temple. I will be sharing my review today and there is also a fab giveaway to enter. First of all though lets take a look at the description for the book...
“Women either ran from Lord Ravenscar or ran to him.”
A Wild Lords and Innocent Ladies story
Alan Rothwell, Marquess of Ravenscar, is furious when unconventional heiress Lily Wallace refuses him purchase of her property. He can’t even win her over with his infamous charm. But when fever seizes him and they’re trapped together, horrified, Alan realizes Lily’s attentions will compromise them both! His solution: take Lily as his betrothed before desire consumes them completely…
After reading book one in the Wild Lords and Innocent Ladies series I couldn't wait to pick up book two. Even though this book is part of a series I would easily class it as a standalone. In this story we meet Alan and Lily who I couldn't help but love. Alan is determined to purchase a property that Lily is reluctant to sell but there is so much more to this story with themes of loss, family and of course love. The sparks really flew when these two clashed and it made me whip through this story even more quickly.
This truly is the perfect romance to be swept away with, I couldn't help but smile pretty much all the way through as Alan and Lily struggle to contain the simmering attraction between them. Lara Temple has created some wonderful characters that make you root for them right from the very beginning. In Alan you have someone who appears at first glance to be a typical rake and full of charm but slowly but surely the layers are revealed and show a much deeper vulnerability that made his character so much more loveable. The same can be said for Lily she is strong willed but as you find out her back story there is more to her personality too and I was hoping that things would work out perfectly in the end. Their interactions are lively and entertaining providing some lighter moments that just made this book so much fun.
Lord Ravenscar's Inconvenient Betrothal is a truly charming story with romance, passion and two wonderful characters.
Five stars from me!
With thanks to Rachel at Rachel's Random Resources for my copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.
Lara Temple writes strong, sexy regency romances about complex individuals who give no quarter but do so with plenty of passion. Her fifth book with Harlequin Mills & Boon, 'Lord Ravenscar’s Inconvenient Betrothal,' will be published in March 2018, and is the second in her Wild Lords series. Her four previous books are: Lord Hunter's Cinderella Heiress, The Duke’s Unexpected Bride, The Reluctant Viscount, and Lord Crayle’s Secret World.
When she was fifteen Lara found a very grubby copy of Georgette Heyer’s Faro’s Daughter in an equally grubby book store. Several blissful hours later she emerged, blinking, into the light of day completely in love with Regency Romance but it took three decades of various fascinating but completely unrelated careers in finance and high tech before she returned to her first love.
Lara lives with her husband and two children who are very good about her taking over the kitchen table for her writing (so she can look out over the garden and dream). She loves to travel (especially to places steeped in history) and read as many books as possible. She recently went looking for that 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…
