I really liked this book - it reminded me of Jane Austen's "Emma".
Juliana is a compulsive meddler - she has a good heart and just wants to see everyone happy. James is a wonderful hero who doesn't think he will ever fall in love again after losing his beloved wife Anne and their child.
Throw in a couple of hypochondriac aunts, a couple of cousins, a little girl with a snake and a wallflower friend trapped in an unwanted betrothal and you have yourself a meddler's dream come true :)
Juliana schemes to make everything right for everyone and almost ends up losing the love of her life.
James was a great hero, he finds himself falling for Juliana and going along with her scheme to be able to spend time with her. I would have liked it better if Juliana had been portrayed as his soul mate rather than his second love - logically I know people can love more than one person, but in a romance book, I want the love of a lifetime - I want soul mates. I don't doubt his love for Juliana - I just wanted it to be more.
I am looking forward to reading the final book in the trilogy - I was hoping for more of Griffin and Rachel in this story, but they barely made an appearance so fingers crossed for Griffin and Rachel in the final book!!!

Juliana and James were meant to be together. It took a while for them to realize it but it was worth the wait. She wanted to see everyone happy so she did her best at match making. Juliana had a good heart though. Too bad she made a mess of things. James was a man of my dreams. Loved him. Loved the side friends and relatives. Did not love Emily and that snake. Inappropriate for an 8 year old. Wonder when she would give up that form of security blanket. Other than that, I loved the book. Reading this trilogy out of order. Book 3 waiting for me.
4,0 su 5 stelleJuliana's plotting was a little over the top and annoying to me

This book dragged a little for me compared to Lost in Temptation. Juliana's plotting was a little over the top and annoying to me, and her denseness about her feelings for James irritated me at the book's beginning. Overall, though, I still enjoyed the book enough that I plan to read more by this author. Thank you to the author for offering the first book in this series (Lost in Temptation) for free. It hooked me to buy both this book and the third in the series, and I also downloaded Fabulous Firsts per the author's suggestion at the end of the book. I've been looking for a good Regency roman author, and I've found one in Lauren Royal.

I have quickly become a fan of Lauren Royal's books. Each of her trilogies are different. The Jewel Trilogy is full of danger and intrigue. The Flower Trilogy is filled with stories of love overcoming obstacles, real or imagined. What is the Temptations Trilogy focused on? Resisting the love the is right even though society says it's wrong.
Tempting Juliana is a lighthearted romp filled with both scenes that are swoon-worth as well as those that inspire a full-on giggle. There are meddling mothers, hypochondriac aunts, clueless chaperones, you name it. It all adds up to a fun book that I couldn't put down. I am only sad that there's only one book left in this trilogy to read!

Lauren royal is amazing. By far one of my favorite writers. This book has all the highs and lows,and twists and turns, as all of her others. This book was a little harder for me to read, because i wanted this happy ending so bad! And i got it! She always delivers
