Overview

A TEMPTING DIVERSION
Things have always fallen into place for Richard Moore, Earl of Raleigh. His good looks, abundance of charm, and the small matter of being heir to a marquisate make him quite the catch. So when a delectable young woman wants nothing to do with him, he can’t help but seize the irresistible challenge.

AN UNLIKELY COURTSHIP
Jane Bunting knows all about responsibility—she has managed to support herself and her brother with their bakery—but she knows nothing of excitement or passion. When dashing Lord Raleigh crosses the threshold of her shop, she has no idea of the potential danger to her reputation…or to her heart.

AN IMPOSSIBLE MATCH
Neither imagined things would go so far—until the night their worlds collide, irrevocably changing both their lives. But when duty calls for Richard, and with everything Jane's worked for suddenly at stake, will their taste for scandal be their downfall?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
08/25/2014
Knightley (More than a Stranger) presents an unconventional light romance with a strong cast of characters but no villains to speak of. Richard Moore, the Earl of Raleigh, boldly tries to save baker Jane Bunting from a ruffian—but the man is Jane's cousin. She thinks the earl is attacking him and hollers for his arrest. The confusion is soon sorted out, and after Jane apologizes for her overreaction and Richard for the damages he's caused, a tentative friendship is forged. Jane shows Richard how sheltered he is as he watches her work hard to keep her shop and secure her brother's future. Richard, who is used to the simpering ladies of the ballroom, is intrigued by Jane and sets out to win her over with teasing. Holding their own as co-stars are the other women in Richard's life: his sisters, his mother, and the young woman his family hopes he marries. His merry, sneaky sister Beatrice has a heart of gold and makes the perfect fairy godmother in this Cinderella story. Family dynamics and loyalty propel the narrative forward. Much like the pastries that play a prominent role in the Richard's courtship of Jane, this romance is rich, savory, and warm. (Dec. 2013)

    Endearing characters

    Reviewed by ANN & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

    With endearing characters, eloquent writing and a spoonful of charm, you’ve got the perfect recipe for the perfect read! ~ Under the Covers

    Richard Moore, Earl of Raleigh is no stranger to a life of scandal and carnal pleasures. He indulges often and isn’t afraid to use his charm to get what he wants. However, life has seemed rather dull lately and it isn’t until he attempts to be a hero that things go terribly wrong for him. A shrill shriek catches his attention and when his eyes land on a large, roughened man and a wide-eyed woman, Richard reacts impulsively and tackles the man to the ground to prevent him from hurting the poor lady.

    Soon he finds that the lady was in fact not in any sort of trouble, but simply very excited to see his cousin. Worse yet is the fact that the lady he has attempted to save is now blaming him for the damaged done to her shop as he fought the man. Now, it seems that Richard cannot complain of his life being uneventful as the beauty pointing her dainty little finger at him both infuriates and intrigues him. Richard makes it his next goal to learn more about Jane Bunting.

    Erin Knightley delivers a splendid sequel to the Sealed with a Kiss series. I was ecstatic to learn that Richard was getting a book next. He made such an impression in the first book that I just had to know what would happen to him. Knightley creates a charming story for Jane and Richard that I couldn’t help but smile and even laugh out loud at some scenes. This is partly due to the mess that Richard and Jane get themselves into and also partly due to the way Knightley writes her books. She has a very strong voice that I think is very unique and reminiscence of historical heavy-hitters such as Lisa Kleypas, Julia Quinn, Suzanne Enoch and even a bit of Tessa Dare. The whole book is infused with charm and crazy antics that made it so easy to sink deeply into this world.

    Added to that is the fact that Knightley writes strong bonds between the siblings. Beatrice is a major part of this book and I think that this creates a lot of anticipation for the next book in the series where readers will see Beatrice get her own story told. As layers are built upon more layers, Knightley is creating a nice little niche of characters that I think readers will find endearing and fun.

    In this book, the magic really happens in the kitchen when Richard learns how to bake from Jane. As they made progress with each dish, the sexual tension boils to a fevering point and I think the romance was really well done. I do think that the ending progressed a little too quickly for my taste, however, there is no doubt that Jane and Richard have enough chemistry to fuel a fire.

    I can’t wait to read Beatrice’s book next! This is a new series that I’m glad I’ve discovered. With endearing characters, eloquent writing and a spoonful of charm, you’ve got the perfect recipe for the perfect read!

    Just as with the first book in the series, I quit enjoyed this one. It was cute and sweet and I loved the way they clashed and their bickering. Overall I thought this was a top notch historical romance. One of my favorites.
