I'm so glad you enjoyed Lucas and Chase's stories! I enjoyed writing them so much and I miss them already. Edge and Sam's story (The Lord's Inconvenient Vow) is out in 4 months - 31 October 2019. It starts out in Egypt and then heads back to London. Sam and Edge are very special for me so I hope that comes across and I do hope you enjoy them as well! Thanks so much for reading and sharing your enjoyment and thoughts on my books - I always learn more about my books reading other people's impressions! Lara x(less)

Sophie, the heroine was very clear to me - a misfit in a large family, with a love of painting and a big heart but always a sense of being out of place. The key line in this scene was when she tries to capture the escaping pug (called Marmaduke) and yells out ‘Heel, Duke!’ and though the pug doesn’t heed her, a real duke does. The Hero, the Duke of Harcourt, takes his title and its responsibilities very seriously and after a tragic past engagement he is determined that his wife will everything that is proper. Neither he nor Sophie considered each other as partners, despite the undeniable attraction between then, but when circumstance and an old rival force them into an engagement they struggle to come to terms with their new circumstances. There’s a light side to The Duke’s Unexpected Bride, but it is also a story about guilt and feeling helpless and realizing what you can, luckily, be very wrong about what you really need in life.(less)

Unconventional Heroines: Caroline Herschel’s Stellar Career

Being a history of science geek I’ve known about Caroline Herschel for quite a few years, but recently I went on a tour of the RAS and as we were shown into the upstairs library a rather wild looking lady dressed in a long saffron silk dress and with her greying blond hair halfway down her back burst in and, in a heavy German accent and a great deal of humor, presented the amazing life story of Wi Read more of this blog post »

Quotes by Lara Temple  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Imagine you find a book you’ve searched for for a long, long time. You want to rush through it, don’t you? Immerse yourself in it, consume it whole in one sitting. But you also want to make it last, sink into each page and let it absorb you whole. This is where you feel alive and you never want it to end, because you know that when it does you will be bereft, thrust out of that perfect place where you felt you belonged, where you were temporarily whole. You want to devour, but you also want to savour and that conflict is both torture and bliss. That is what a good kiss is.”
Lara Temple, The Rake's Enticing Proposal

“He raised her hand to his cheek and the warmth of his skin and the roughness of his stubble chased along her nerves.
Fear struck her hard. Every one of his gestures was pushing a wedge between her and that part of herself that kept her safe.
He was like a forbidden book, like a glance through a prison window at rolling hills and a gleaming sea beyond. One could not unsee, unread, unfeel such things. He was now part of her.”
Lara Temple, The Wrong Way to Catch a Rake

“I am not covetous, but as ambitious as ever any of my sex was, is, or can be; which makes, that though I cannot be Henry the Fifth, or Charles the Second, yet I endeavour to be Margaret the First; and although I have neither power, time, not occasion to conquer the world as Alexander and Caesar did; yet rather than not be mistress of one, since Fortune and Fates would give me none, I have made a world of my own; for which nobody, I hope, will blame me, since it is in everyone's power to do the like.”
Margaret Cavendish - Dutchess of Newcastle
