Summary

Richard Jonas has loved but one woman - a woman who belongs to his brother. Refusing to suffer any longer, he evades his family in order to barricade his heart from unrequited love. While attending a friend's summer picnic, Richard's approach to love is changed after he shares a passionate and life-altering kiss with a vibrant and mysterious woman. Believing he was incapable of loving again, Richard finds himself tempted by a young lady determined to marry his best friend.

Gemma Reed has not been treated kindly by the ton. Often disregarded for her appearance and interests unlike those of a proper lady, Gemma heads to a house party to win the heart of Lord Westfield, the man she's loved for years. But her plan is set off course by the tempting and intriguing, Richard Jonas.

A chance meeting creates a new path for Richard and Gemma to forge - but can two people, scorned and shunned by those they've loved from afar, let down their guards to find true happiness?

They Both Love Horses

Richard Jonas and Gemma Reed have been in love for years, but not with each other. When they have a chance meeting at a week-long society function, a friendship develops. They share their struggles with their loves and find a lot of interests in common.

I’m not sure why this is part of the Lords of Honor series, other than that Richard’s love is a character in a previous book. It is a novella so I assume it’s tucked in here to complete a background story. Actually it’s a 3-1/2 star.

Once more the author has created great characters and the storyline is good. I didn’t enjoy it as much as the other ones in the series, mainly because neither h/h were victims of war so it didn’t flow with the basic premise of the series.

I also listened to the audio version narrated by Tim Campbell. It’s good but not great.

Tempted by a Lady's Smile

Christie Caldwell crushes the field of Regency writers with this one! My husband even came into the room of ask me what I was laughing at. LoL Tim Campbell always drags me into the story so I can be there on the sidelines. Definitely a 5 Star audiobook for the author and narrator! 💗

Light and enjoyable

I thoroughly enjoyed this story, partly because I needed something light to read and not full of hours and hours of painful angst. It’s a familiar plot line if you read enough, but different enough to retain my interest. It’s a cut above the average writing and the narration was good, even though I’m more attached now to duo narrators, a man and woman team. Some narrators can put my teeth on edge. If I have to choose, I prefer a male reader who does a great job at the male voices since I’m female. And Tim Campbell did well enough with the female voices that I didn’t notice. All in all I enjoyed it.

A Fun Story

This was a quirky story and I enjoyed every minute. At one point I want to shout at the characters to kiss already. Oh but they already did that 😉. I hope you enjoy it too.
