‘Tempting Mr. Weatherstone’ by Vivienne Lorret

tmw vlSTORY: Penelope Rutledge longs for passion, but only with the man of her dreams: the brilliant, dashing Ethan Weatherstone. If only her longtime neighbor would open his eyes and realize how much she loves him. If only they weren’t best friends with so much at stake. Penelope knows her future—and their friendship—is in her hands, but is she willing to take the biggest risk of all on the man she loves?

If it were up to Ethan, life and love would be as predictable as the figures in his ledgers—certainly nothing like the adventures Penelope longs for. Yet his childhood friend has grown into a beautiful, feisty woman blissfully unaware of the danger she causes when near. Ethan knows he must save Penelope and her reputation … but can he save himself from the temptation of her lips?

Previously appeared in the e-book anthology Five Golden Rings’ and you can check my review of it here.

REVIEW: I read this short story four years ago and it was the first time I read this author. This is actually the prequel to the Wallflower Weddings series, and a good one at that. Trope of childhood friends falling in love is one that I always liked and I thought this story was very well done. It packed a lot for a short story!

I found the characters in this story to be sweet, fun and entertaining. The chemistry was good, the pace fast and the dialogue witty.

This is a perfect story for any season, but Christmas especially. My suggestion is to sample it in the anthology, which has five authors and is almost 500 pages, for only $3.99 🙂

About Bookworm

I'm married, working, and have grown and independent kids. I love gardening, reading and painting. My favorite TV show is Dancing With the Stars! Television shows have gone to the crap house. My favorite movie of all time is "Last of the Mohicans" with Daniel Day Lewis. Second best is "Titanic" and third "Passion of the Christ". I am an avid reader and I love talking about the books I’ve read, especially romance novels. I will warn you though: I am prone to rants and raves about a lot of things!
