#Review: THE TASTE OF TEMPTATION by Julia Kelly



  4 of 5 stars

Miss Caroline Burkett is infamous for suing an ex-finance and winning her case. Unfortunately, by the time, the decision was made, every aspect of Caroline's life had been picked apart and scrutinized. She flees London and heads to Scotland to live with her brother until she can marry. She's looking to marry as soon as possible and hires the services Mrs. Sullivan, a matchmaker in Edinburgh, Scotland. Caroline hopes to never cross paths with another newspaper ever again.

Jonathan Moray owns two successful newspapers--one serious articles and the other, a gossip newspaper. When he finds out Caroline has fled to Edinburgh, he knows that she's the key to selling newspaper. What he doesn't realize is Caroline is unlike anyone he's ever known.

I loved this second book in the Matchmaker of Edinburgh series. Ms. Kelly takes her time in establishing a relationship between Caroline and Jonathan and their attraction toward each other doesn't feel forced. This was a serious subject that I'm sure didn't happen very often during the times, but I felt that Ms. Kelly handled it very well. By the end, I was routing for Caroline and Jonathan to finally admit what they felt for each. Fans of historical romances will definitely enjoy this one.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
