She wanted a life of her own. . .

Paulette Hamilton loves working in her family's London bookshop. Strong-willed and sharp-witted, she hopes to one day open a second shop, and she won't let romantic follies get in her way. But the best laid plans have never met such a handsome Irish widower with a dubious history. . .

He wanted to leave his behind. . .

Declan Reeves came to London with his young daughter to escape his life in Ireland. Though he's vowed to never marry again, he quickly falls prey to the tempting blue eyes of fair-haired Paulette. But her family is suspicious of his past, and before he can make her his wife, he must travel to Ireland to vindicate his reputation. Torn between honor and desire, Declan and Paulette launch a perilous search for the truth. Whether it lies in the past or a present beyond their control, it's their only hope for a future together. . .

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
O’Riley (a pen name for Kathleen Milmore) expertly blends mystery and romance in the fourth Hamilton Sisters Victorian-era romance (after It Happened One Christmas). Paulette Hamilton, one of five daughters, is perfectly content to remain single and work in her family’s London bookstore, but when Declan Reeves, Lord Cashelmore, walks in with his young daughter, Mara, she feels an instant connection to him. Declan’s wife died in a horrible fire, and he is a suspect in her death; Mara has been mute since she witnessed her mother’s death. Declan and Paulette slowly venture toward romance despite their mutual aversion to marriage. Paulette’s forthrightness and independence are refreshing in a Victorian heroine, and O’Riley’s attention to detail imbues each character with realism. The heart of the story is the magnetic attraction between Paulette and Declan as they search for the cause of the fire that destroyed his life and threatens their future. Agent: Jane Dystel, Dystel & Goderich Literary Management. (Nov.)

    Another great addition to the Hamilton Sister¿s series. This sto

    Another great addition to the Hamilton Sister’s series. This story is about Paulette Hamilton who works at her family’s bookshop. She is a very strong and independent woman who has ambitions and goals. One of those goals is to open another bookshop. Paulette has no time for romance in her busy life until Declan Reeves walks into her store. There is an immediate attraction between the two and Paulette is also drawn to Declan’s daughter Mara. Rumors run amuck that suggest Declan killed his wife in a devastating fire that Mara witnessed. Declan and Paulette’s relationship must be kept secret until they can find the truth about the fire. Their relationship grows and strengthens during their time finding the truth.

    This was the first book of the series I have read. I enjoyed it immensely and can not wait to purchase the first three and get to know the Hamilton sister’s a little bit more.

    Paulette loves working in her family owned bookshop, and preparing to open a second one. She has made no time for romance, or marriage much to the dismay of her younger sister.

    Declan came to London to hopefully find a doctor to help his daughter Mara. Also trying to get away from the vicious rumors that he killed his wife.

    Paulette and Declan meet when, Declan brings Mara to the bookshop that Paulette's family owns. The attraction between the two is almost instant. The both feel very drawn to each other. Declan keeps visiting the shop sometimes with Mara and sometimes by himself. Paulette just knows that he did not kill his wife, and wont listen to the gossip of others and what the newspapers print about him. Paulette's sister tries to worn her to stay away from that nothing good will come of it if Paulette becomes friends with Declan.

    Paulette and Declan start a secret relationship. Afraid of what others might say, Paulette is worried that her sisters would disapprove. I really enjoyed the family dynamic. Paulette and her sisters, and Declan and his daughter Mara. I loved how well Paulette and Mara took to each other, I found it very sweet.

    Their attraction to each other gets stronger and stronger. The chemistry was amazing!! The sex scenes were steamy and sweet!

    I really enjoyed To Tempt An Irish Rogue, I now want to read the rest of the series.

    I give To Tempt An Irish Rogue five cocktails

    Quite a tempting Rogue! Kaitlin O¿Riley returns to bring her r

    Quite a tempting Rogue!

    Kaitlin O’Riley returns to bring her readers the anticipated fourth chapter in her Hamilton Sisters romance series To Tempt an Irish Rogue!
    Paulette Hamilton, fourth in the line of five girls born to Thomas and Genevieve Hamilton is at the forefront these days in carrying on the family business, and quite a businesswoman she is also proving to be. Thanks to the love of books she shares with her older sister Collette, along with the whole hearted support (and sometimes resistance) of her other sisters; Juliette, Lisette and Yvette, the Hamilton Book Shoppe is known by all who live in the Mayfair district of London. So successful is their shoppe in fact that plans are in place for the construction of a second store, the name of which Paulette holds in secret along with Collette! Although busy with thoughts of the new store, Paulette finds herself distracted by the serious looking dark-haired customer venturing out on a rainy August day and upon entering the shoppe, she discovers her new customer is also clasping the hand of a reluctant looking young girl. Paulette prides herself in what has thus far proven to be an accurate ability in sizing up people however; at the words uttered by her new customer, thoughts of danger cross her mind. The search for a book for his young daughter is the purpose in bringing the mysterious stranger to Hamilton’s Book Shoppe. Along with the habit of taking careful note of her customers (which she feels until now is with reasonable accuracy), Paulette also has the ability of knowing exactly what her customers want to read. Speaking to the shy little girl hiding behind her father’s pant leg Paulette leads the way to the area set aside for the youngest of Hamilton’s customers. Although gaining nothing other than shy smiles and nods of agreement in response to the questions directed at her newest customer, Paulette finds she is curious (which she also suffers with oftentimes to her own detriment), to know why the child does not speak, even when simply asked for her name. The intense response in which the child’s father delivers his daughter’s name draws Paulette’s attention to him once again. Upon closer scrutinizing, Paulette determines there is more to this man than she initially thought possible and the intense feelings he brings forth in his direct gaze leave her at a loss of reasoning why. Declan Reeves is a man with deep secrets and Paulette cannot help but feel somehow she is the only one who can uncover them and bring truth to light. Once again, Kaitlin O’Riley brings her readers a story filled not only the colorful cast of the Hamilton family, but new characters we cannot help but embrace in the telling of it!
