Determined to apologize, she sneaks out to do just that. Guilt over the lost of friendships and Robert still angry at the embarrassment made Athena even more determine to see Robert, who refuses to see her. Finally giving up he meets her with one thing in mind, to kick her out of his home. The annoying child is now a women and Robert has conflicting feelings. Love the interaction between the two characters. Great that you can get a great read in a few hours. The ending ties all the happily ever after together.

  • Enemies to Lovers

    I received an ARC of this book through NetGalley. All opinions are my own. An Unexpected Temptation by Sophie Barnes is the fifth and final novella in her The Townsbridges series. A child of fourteen when the series began, Athena Townsbridge is now all grown up at age twenty and has decided that she needs to make amends to Robert Carlisle, Marquess of Darlington, for standing up at his wedding six years ago and announcing that the bride and her brother were in love with each other, causing him to be left at the altar a second time. Visiting close by his country estate, she creates an opportunity to sneak out and ride over to make her apologies in person but ends up trapped there by a snowstorm. At first reluctant to accept her overtures, Robert comes to realize that she’s grown from the child he once knew and that perhaps it is time to put the past behind them because he finds himself enchanted by her now. A reasonably low angst story with medium steam, this one is my favourite of the series. Publishing Date: December 8, 2020. #AnUnexpectedTemptation #SophieBarnes #HistoricalRomance #Bookstagram #Bookstagrammer #NetGalley

  • Athena's story

    I couldn't wait for Athena's story. We've watched her grow up thru out the different books of the Townsbridge series. She was the vibrant, no nonsense, most untraditional hoyden, who the ton looked down upon. Ironically, of all her siblings, Althena's story is the most traditional of courtships. I loved the irony also in her choice of a husband, Robert. 6 years previous, at the age of 14, she stood up in church and stopped Robert's wedding,when she announced his fiancee was in love with her brother. They reconnect after 6 years and the attraction between them is instantaneous. I liked the irony in this story but I also felt Athenas story should have been more adventurous as she was. I did love the way Robeet treated her with kidd gloves, allowing her to understand the feelings she was experiencing for the first time. 4 1/2 stars rounded up to 5 I want to thank Netgalley for the chance to review this book.

  • Fantastic Finale

    Six years ago, fourteen-year-old Athena Townsbridge humiliated Robert Carlisle when she stopped his wedding and announced the bride and her brother were in love. Robert is now the Marquess of Darlington and living near her family’s estate. This means social contact may be unavoidable, so Athena decides to try to apologize and make amends for the pain she caused. Athena is and always has been a hoyden. She is the last person he wants to see, but here she is, in his parlor, unchaperoned. To make matters worse, a snowstorm strands her at his home. The visit is quite contentious at the start, but as they spend time together waiting for the storm to abate, Robert realizes that he likes Athena, a lot. What is he to do now? Has Fate thrown them together? How will he face her family? An Unexpected Temptation is a quick, cute read with wonderful characters from the whole series. It is full of fun, surprises, forgiveness, and reconciliation. Athena and Robert’s story is the perfect finale for this wonderful series about a happy family. I enjoyed and recommend it. I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. My review is voluntary.

  • Spellbinding storytelling

    I was looking forward to reading this book. I wasn't disappointed! I loved it. It captured me right from the beginning and held me captive until the end. Warning: don't start reading unless you have the time to read it in one sitting or have discipline and self-control to be able to put it down. I enjoyed reading this book tremendously. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
