$35.00 Harry & David Gift Card

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?

Don't think less of me but...I CRIED...from the first page my chest started to squeeze, and it just built and built, and then...yep...the tears just came and came...I don't think a novella length romance had ever made me cry before, but Vivienne did it with TEMPTING MR. WEATHERSTONE, which is the Prequel Romance to the Wallflower Weddings Series, which is actually one of my favorite Historical Series, has that same magic that I found with Kleypas' Wallflowers Series.  

Lorret captured my attention from page one with her emotional friends-to-lovers romance and I just adored every word.  The novella was the perfect amount of feisty heroine, stubborn hero (he was too stinkin cute), and adorable secondary cast that were all just waiting for these two to figure it all out!

Loved I have the rest of the series!  A Holiday MUST READ!!

I fell in love with fairy tales and the romance behind happily ever after at a very young age. Like a lot of you, I tweaked the fables bit by bit in my imagination until they suited me perfectly. By the time I was eleven, a teacher encouraged me to start writing.

Throughout the years that followed, my teachers remained my most fervent supporters, giving me the tools I needed to continue my journey as a writer.

My husband and I have two teenage boys, who are heroes in their own right. For now, we live in a small Midwestern town near Lake Michigan…until a time in the future when a new adventure calls us to other shores.

I am currently working on my next novel, but I always enjoy hearing from my readers. Feel free to email me at
