Tempted by Jess Michaels

Juliet Grey had saved the life of the Dowager Marchioness of Woodley when she was sick.  To repay her, the Dowager is insisting on funding a Season in London for Juliet.  London with the Dowager is the last place Juliet wants to be because she knows she won't be able to avoid Gabriel Woodley.  Gabriel is obsessed with finding his twin sister who disappeared under mysterious circumstances two years ago.  It is his drive.  The one other thing he notices is Juliet.

Eventually, Gabriel can't fight his desire and asks Juliet for help in finding his sister.  Will her help bring him closer to finding his sister, or destroy all?

I absolutely love the passion between Gabriel and Juliet, yet Gabriel is determined to fight the attraction in his obsession to find his sister.  It was a fresh plot twist to have the hero a virgin.  I love the Woodley family because they learned that station in life does not necessarily make one a good person.  There is the sub-plot of Gabriel's mother and Juliet's father re-kindling a romance that was ended before it could start.  

This is the third book in this series.  I missed (and have since bought) the first two.  It stands well on its own but it is nice to see the have familiar characters woven into the story.

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
