Tempting the Marquess by Sara Lindsey

This is the second novel in new author Sara Lindseys Weston series following Promise Me Tonight. The Weston siblings "have been blessed with Shakespearean names and an affinity for impropriety" and this book focuses on the second oldest sister, Olivia. She travels with her Aunt Kate and niece to Scotland to visit Aunt Kates stepson, Jason, Marquess of Sheldon. Jasons wife Laura had died in a tragic horsing accident a couple years ago leaving Jason alone with their young son, Edward. Now why is Olivia going with? Well...she was organizing the library at her Aunt Kates other home and found Lauras diary and also a small mystery, find the treasure type game from Jason to Laura. Naturally, Livvy could not let this be and found the treasure, a small picture of Jason in a brooch and she falls in love and decides she can rescue this poor, lonely, handsome man! So she travels to Scotland to save him (as she read many Gothic novels and has many ideas in her head) and does indeed find him handsome....and quite arrogant and stuck in the mud. Sparks fly and there are of course, the big misunderstandings but it resolves itself quite nicely.
I read these two books back to back and I really looking forward to the next story, A Rogue of for All Seasons. Sara Lindsey writes a delightful story with some fun dialogue and snappy quips between the H/H. Overall, a great new author....four stars!
