Description

After four unsuccessful London seasons, Lady Julia Tenwick despairs of ever making a love match. With spinsterhood looming on the horizon, she and a friend set sail for America on one last adventure. When her travels take her to northern Maine, Julia meets a reclusive but handsome artist, whose rudeness masks a broken heart Julia feels compelled to mend.

Still haunted by the betrayal and death of his pregnant wife two years before, Geoffrey Jordan is determined never to risk his heart again. Certainly not with the gorgeous and impetuous aristocrat who intrudes upon his small-town solitude, and is far too similar to his late wife to tempt him to take another chance on love.

But when Julia and Geoffrey find themselves united in a reckless plan to save Julia’s friend from ruin, they discover that temptation is impossible to resist.

Publisher's Description: After four unsuccessful London seasons, Lady Julia Tenwick despairs of ever making a love match.

But when Julia and Geoffrey find themselves united in a reckless plan to save Julia’s friend from ruin, they discover that temptation is impossible to resist. My Thoughts: This was a very enjoyable book with a good storyline and well thought out and well developed characters. I have not previously read anything by this author but will make it a point to look for additional titles. I am not certain if this book is part of a series but it could very well be as there are secondary characters that could have their own story. It does however read very well as a standalone book. I would give this book 4.25 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and 3.5 of 5 flames for heat. I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the publisher to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion.

Tempting Mr. Jordan was a delight, so much better than I was expecting. Marin McGinnis seems to be an undiscovered writer. Tempting Mr. Jordan has a strong, cheerful, loyal heroine and a smoldering, self-imposed loner for a hero who is also an artist. Julia is actually Lady Julia and Geoffrey hales from a wealthy family in Maine. He sells his artwork, but his family thinks he is living off of his inheritance. Geoffrey’s family dynamics play a huge part in the story. He is one of four brothers. Lady Julia and Lady Constance have had several seasons in London and neither are yet married or even betrothed. Constance convinces her close friend to accompany her to Boston from England to visit Constance’s married sister Marie. They are going to have a grand adventure. On the ship they meet two brothers who are returning to Maine. Constance, ever the adventurer and flirt, strikes up a conversation with them. Thomas is the older brother, Geoffrey the silent, younger brother. Julia eventually realizes she actually had a glimpse of Geoffrey back in England when he had been painting along the river front. He had, also, noticed her on the same day. He does not want her around him and basically, is quite rude. Once they arrive in Boston, the ladies find out Constance’s sister is in Maine with her husband while he is supervising the construction of a hotel. By coincidence it is the home town of the brothers. There, Constance switches her romantic attempts to the youngest of the four brothers, Matthew, as she has found out Thomas is betrothed to another English lady. As the story progresses Julia and Geoffrey keep running into each other around town. Julia’s natural happiness begins to chip away at Geoffrey’s sullenness and the continued mourning of his dead wife, another intriguing part of the story. Julia believes she needs to stay away from him because she thinks she just makes him angry. She is actually getting to him and helping him thaw. Constance and Matthew get into a bit of mischief. So, Julia and Geoffrey go after them. Julia is sincerely worried for her dear friend. Geoffrey doesn’t trust his brother. What ensues makes for an enjoyable, intriguing story. There is a surprise twist toward the end of the book that took me by surprise. Ms. McGinnis is a talented writer whom I hope more people will discover. Thank you Net Galley for sharing this interesting book in exchange for an honest review.
