Inspired kathys reviews


I was in the mood for a quick sweet novella I could read in one sitting so I gave this one a try.  I enjoy reading books from this time period and didn’t end up disappointed but did wish for a little bit more than what I got.  Sweet Temptation was a little too “insta-love” for me and I didn’t really feel the connection between the two of them but I enjoyed the story-line.

There were a few crude comments and talk of escapes in a widow’s bed and I wondered a couple times if this would be a stay a clean read or if it would push the limits as it felt a couple times like it was walking that fine line. It has a memorable plot line and I would try another book by this author.



Rating: 3.5 Stars – Good Book

Content: a few crude comments, mention of sewing “wild oats” being acceptable but other wise clean.
