Temptation's Darling | Johanna Lindsey
3 posts | 2 read | 3 to read
#1 New York Times bestselling author Johanna Lindsey blends passion and humor in a dazzling Regency-era novel in which a disastrous debutante becomes the toast of the town with a little help from a friend of the Prince Regents. Threatened by powerful enemies, William Blackburn, Earl of Ketterham, lives in exile in the Scottish Highlands with his daughter Vanessa. When she comes of age William urges her to return to her mother in England to make her debut. Raised with all the advantages and freedom a boy would have, Vanessa doubts she can fit into the mold of a proper young lady. Still, she agrees to re-enter fashionable society, determined to end the vendetta against her father, never imagining the high price she will have to pay. Lord Montgomery Townsend enjoys living on the edge, courting danger as he fixes potentially scandalous problems for the Prince Regent. While hiding out at the home of the Countess of Ketterham, Monty watches a disaster-in-the-making as his hostess tries to prepare her estranged daughter for a match with the pompous son of a powerful family. Puzzled as to why independent-minded Vanessa submits to being turned into a puppet and wants to marry the arrogant rogue, Monty nonetheless steps in to make her dreams come true. But no good deed goes unpunished and soon he faces more pressing problems, including the temptation to upend Vanessas wedding plans so he can marry her himself!

Mehso-so

Johanna Lindsey wrote the first romance I ever read so I will always read them because nostalgia. But this one was just ok, not as good as her older books (but that could be me just remembering them that way 🤷🏻‍♀️) #romance #romantsy

Dogearedcopy Wow! I didn't realize that she was still writing! She wasn't the first romance authorI read (that spot goes to Barbara Ferry Johnson-- 'Tara's Song') but I remember the early 90's and Fabio!

Really enjoyed the story! Loved the playfulness between the hero and the heroine, like that secrets were shared, and that misunderstandings were cleared up quickly! But, did think the book was a tad long and could have easily been cut down a bit.
