LOST IN TEMPTATION - England, 1815 - Lady Alexandra Chase has always done what was expected of her. But when the man she's loved since her girlhood returns from a long spell abroad, she quite suddenly finds herself hoping the fine lord her brother has picked for her won't propose.
TEMPTING JULIANA - London, 1816 - There's nothing Juliana Chase wants more than to see her loved ones happy. So why is everyone ignoring her good intentions and shaking up her sensible plans?
THE ART OF TEMPTATION - London, 1817 - Though Corinna Chase is more interested in pursuing her art than finding a husband, she can't help but take notice of the handsome Irishman who's moved in next door. When it soon becomes evident that her new neighbor isn't who he says he is, rather than expose him, she finds herself drawn into the hoax.
Playing matchmaking mama to three Regency ladies isn’t easy—especially if you’re not even a mama, but a clueless older brother thrust into unexpected responsibility. Alexandra is the dependable one, Juliana the schemer, and Corinna the artistic rebel. But Griffin Chase’s three younger sisters all prove equally maddening as he attempts to help them find love…while perhaps managing to secure a lady’s affections for himself…

divine with a sensual play as delicious as the recipes for
sweets…a deeply satisfying and original read.
