I received this book for free from Rachels Random Resources in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


Alan Rothwell, Marquess of Ravenscar, is furious when unconventional heiress Lily Wallace refuses him purchase of her property. He can’t even win her over with his infamous charm. But when fever seizes him and they’re trapped together, horrified, Alan realizes Lily’s attentions will compromise them both! His solution: take Lily as his betrothed before desire consumes them completely…


Lily Wallace is off her beloved island and in England to find a suitable match with her inheritance. She runs into Alan Rothwell, Marquess of Ravenscar who wants to buy her property she has just inherited. She refuses. Fate would have them cross paths again and they are left alone for a couple of days while Rothwell is down with a fever. Convinced that she has been compromised he declares them betrothed. If only it were that simple she gives him a run for his money.

In ” an Oyster Shell –  A tantalizing romance that has a palpable tension that will get your heart racing and your fingers turning the pages quickly.

The Pearls – The author had a deft hand with words. She had great word economy. I appreciate good books that make me have to look words up. It was entertaining but I also learned some new words. That is always thrilling for me.

The romance was intense. The tension between Lily and Allen was jumping off the pages and captivating me. There were real struggles for the two as they were both stubborn and had to fight to be open with the other. It was a riveting adventure to read what happens with the two of them.

I loved Lily as the heroine. She was a mystery at first that was delightfully untangled by Lord Ravenscar himself. He was a troubled man but Lily challenged him and simultaneously sought to soothe the festering wounds of his past. They were really great characters that brought the story to life.

The Sand – It was on the steamy side not as clean as I like.

About Lara Temple

Lara Temple writes strong, sexy regency romances about complex individuals who give no quarter but do so with plenty of passion. Her fifth book with Harlequin Mills & Boon, ‘Lord Ravenscar’s Inconvenient Betrothal,’ will be published in March 2018, and is the second in her Wild Lords series. Her four previous books are: Lord Hunter’s Cinderella Heiress, The Duke’s Unexpected Bride, The Reluctant Viscount, and Lord Crayle’s Secret World.

When she was fifteen Lara found a very grubby copy of Georgette Heyer’s Faro’s Daughter in an equally grubby book store. Several blissful hours later she emerged, blinking, into the light of day completely in love with Regency Romance but it took three decades of various fascinating but completely unrelated careers in finance and high tech before she returned to her first love.

Lara lives with her husband and two children who are very good about her taking over the kitchen table for her writing (so she can look out over the garden and dream). She loves to travel (especially to places steeped in history) and read as many books as possible. She recently went looking for that crowded little bookstore but couldn’t quite remember around what corner it was…hopefully it is still there and another girl is in the corner by the window, reading and dreaming…
