    Easy going read that is blessed with enjoyable characters.

    Lord Matheson needs a wife posthaste and he asking the first lovely lady that piqued his interest and that was his first mistake! James has a few problems. First, he is engaged to an eloquent, intelligent, and enchanting woman that he doesn't love. Second, he has to get married quickly to defuse the scandal that has befallen his sister and her daughters. Third, and the worst yet, he is in love with his fiancé's sister. What is a Viscount to do? When you envision a proper lady you see Louisa Oliver. Demure, proper and lovely, she was a perfect choice to become the next Viscountess. She is the complete opposite of her step sister, Julia Herington. Julia is impetuous, speaks her mind and is very vivid. These two women grew up together forming an unbreakable bond. Julia is ecstatic about her sister's engagement. Julia is unschooled in love and it doesn't become clear to her right away that she is developing feelings for James. So she does what every respectable lady would do, she sets out to deter those feelings and to find herself a suitable husband. The London ton won't know what hit them. Poor Lord Matheson, he has countless problems and he still needs to maneuver the mazes of the ton. Society has been a thorn in his side all his life and now that he has found the perfect woman, he is not allowed to pursue her. Constant encounters, growing feelings and clueless vexing relatives are the least of his concerns. His head knows what needs to be done, now if only he can get his heart to agree. He must relinquish Julia once and for all. This was a relaxing enjoyable read. The story was slow starting but engaging. The subject matter was handled extremely well. When you have a man who is engaged to a woman that he doesn't love, but falls in love with her sister, you cannot have a rushed story. Ms. Romain was able to write a believable book that was thought out and thorough, an absolute joy. The last third of the book was absolutely the best and worth the journey to get there. Season for Temptation is an entertaining read with an unconventional love triangle, quirky relatives and well placed humorous moments; a romantic tale for the senses.

    A strong unique cast, especially Julia's eccentric family, anchors this engaging romantic triangle between the two sisters and the Viscount

    In 1817 Lord Oliver approves of James Matison's suit of the former's daughter Louisa. James arrives in Kent to meet Louisa's family when he hears a women curse. He thinks Louisa's half-sister Julia is impulsive and cute. She introduces him to her three younger sisters and brother while she eats the better snacks.

    James and Louisa met in a library at a party. She was hiding amidst the books as she loves to read while he sought a bathroom. He feels awkward as he now realizes he is attracted to her sister and enjoys the impish play between his fiancée and Julia. Louisa's parents arrive after a calf is born. Dinner proves as lively; reminding him of his mother's need for no scandal since his late brother-in-law died in his mistress' arms. James feels welcomed. The next morning he is late for breakfast, but Julia sees he has a nice meal while he coaxes her to join him, which she does. Feeling distraught as he wants to kiss Julia, he asks Louisa to set a date. She acts skittish trying to delay him while also backing away from his attempt to kiss her. Louisa explains she will come to London with Julia being sponsored by their Aunt Estella. They will wed after that; he agrees though his attraction is to her sister.

    A strong unique cast, especially Julia's eccentric family, anchors this engaging romantic triangle between the two sisters and the Viscount. Each adores and respects one another, which adds depth as not one of them deserves to be hurt. In fact James's mom is the villain, but comes across as inane and selfish while causing unnecessary conflict to an otherwise wonderful fresh Regency romance.
