Overview

A Top 10 Nook Bestseller from a New York Times Bestselling Author!

London, 1816

Lady Juliana Chase wants nothing more than to see everyone around her happy. That's why she takes such pleasure in playing matchmaker. Her latest efforts involve Dr. James Trevor, the Earl of Stafford, and her good friend Amanda, who are absolutely perfect for each other. So why on earth is the handsome physician ignoring Juliana's good intentions and ruining her carefully laid plans?

After losing his wife, James buried himself in his work, opening a clinic to vaccinate London's poor against smallpox. The last thing he wants is to fall for another woman. So when Juliana meddles with his love life, he's surprised to find himself smitten--but not with Amanda. Now he must turn the tables and beat Juliana at her own game, or risk losing the determined beauty who has reawakened his desires and captured his heart...

Meet the Author

I decided to become a writer in the third grade (or, as my Canadian friends call it, grade three), after winning a "Why My Mother is the Greatest" essay contest and having my entry published in a major newspaper. Seeing my words in print was a thrill! But everyone told me it's too hard for novelists to get published, so after college I spent fourteen years as the CEO of my own jewelry store chain before writing my first book. A mistake? Maybe...but my first heroine, Amethyst, was a jeweler, so at least I took advantage of that wise old saying, "Write what you know." And I learned a good lesson: Don't let other people tell you what you can or can't do!

I write humorous historical romance mostly set in England and Scotland in the 17th and 19th centuries (Restoration and Regency periods). I've been oh-so-lucky to see my books hit bestseller lists all over the world, including the New York Times and USA Today lists, making this second career a real dream come true. I live in Southern California with my family and a constantly shedding cat, and I still think my mother is the greatest!

Tempting Juliana 4.3 out of 5 based on 1 ratings. 31 reviews.

NOT UP TO PAR WITH THE FIRST BOOK OF THIS SERIES! I came close to not completing this book. There really isn't much of a story line, unless you count a story about meddling a lot, and the wrong people being pared. It does improve at about 3/4 of the book. Unlike the first book, which had so many twists, suspense and mystery, this one is very bland. If you buy the bundle, then read this book, but I don't think it is worth $4.99 for Juliana's story. There was more romance and connection in Alexandra and Tristan's story. I did like James though and he had a very big caring heart. The Aunt's and other relatives did make this enjoyable at times.

This is probably my favorite romance book, and I've read many. Love, love, love the two main characters, James and Juliana. And the supporting characters have a lot happening in the book too. One scene is smoking hot, considering they get interrupted and therefore have to wait for another time. And some of their interactions are hilarious. This book put a smile on my face many times. It's been filed under my shelf titled "to read again".

After reading the 2006 review I do not think I actually need to purchase the book; she gave me the story.

I enjoy Lauren Royal'sbooks, and I did enjoy this one, but Juliana and her meddling were getting me annoyed at first. And what was she thinking when she met James--his hair is too dark, he's too tall--what kind of reasoning is that? Ultimately, the book ws fun, but I enjoyed the first of the trilogy, "Lost in Tempttion" better. I found Alexandra to be a far more interesting heroine than her sister.

Still a good novel, but I found myself extremely frustrated with Juliana the first half of the book. I did not find it as pleasant as Tristan and Alexandra's story, but it was alright even if it was a bit of a let down. I'm hoping the third and final book of the series will be better.

Another good Chase family story.

Lauren Royal's books always deliver. This one is no different. I love how she pulls the characters in the series through the book. This is the second in the series, and it's just as good as the first. Maybe even better. I love how the recepies are a part of the story, and she has modern copies on her web site. Check it out!
