Tempting Juliana

James and Juliana's story — second in the Regency Chase Family Series!

London, 1816

Lady Juliana Chase wants nothing more than to see everyone around her happy. That's why she takes such pleasure in playing matchmaker. Her latest efforts involve Dr. James Trevor, the Earl of Stafford, and her good friend Amanda, who are absolutely perfect for each other. So why on earth is the handsome physician ignoring Juliana's good intentions and ruining her carefully laid plans?

After losing his wife, James buried himself in his work, opening a clinic to vaccinate London's poor against smallpox. The last thing he wants is to fall for another woman. So when Juliana meddles with his love life, he's surprised to find himself smitten—but not with Amanda. Now he must turn the tables and beat Juliana at her own game, or risk losing the determined beauty who has reawakened his desires and captured his heart...

Series Info: Regency Chase Family Series

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…
