Book Tour Review: A Matter of Temptation
A sexy, sumptuous Victorian start to a new historical series from USA Today bestselling author Stacy Reid.
Miss Wilhelmina “Mina” Crawford is desperate. Having been ruined in the eyes of society years ago for one foolish, starry-eyed mistake, she spends her days secreted away at her family’s crumbling estate, helping her brother manage the land but not able to truly live life the way she’s always dreamed. When her brother admits to just how dire their finances have gotten, she takes it upon herself to procure employment…but the only one who will even consider the scandalous idea of a female secretary is the brilliant, ruthless, and infuriating Earl of Creswick.
I used to read tons of historical fiction romances. Recently with the hype of Bridgerton, my interest has been peaked again to read these types of stories. I love a strong heroine. Mina is the perfect heroine. Don't mistaken her for a wilting wallflower. Simon quickly learned this the hard way. Yet, he was smart enough to appreciate Mina's strength.
Simon is a gentleman. I like that he actually knew who his people were that he presided over. It showed that he cared. In addition, to the way that he helped Mina with a sticky situation.
If you are looking for your next romance after watching Bridgerton, then you will want to pick up a copy of A Matter of Temptation! Mina and Simon really bring the steamy, chemistry vibes that will have you swooning.
