Format: Mass Market Paperback
There was more than enough material for Layton in dealing with Eric’s fears about his illness and Camille’s lack of self-confidence and, instead of introducing irrelevant and uninteresting characters, she could have spent more time showing the development of Eric and Camille’s friendship and Eric’s growing realisation of his feelings for Camille. I would have enjoyed the book far more had Layton developed the plot in that way.
Nevertheless, as always it was good to see characters from previous books, though as in each case Layton seems to focus on Drum and Rafe and their spouses, with brief glimpses of Gilly and Damon. While Ewen Sinclair, one of my favourite characters from the series, does make an appearance in this book, it’s almost entirely offstage, and Hathaway Wycoff is only mentioned. More of these two in future books, Layton! Although, since Gilly’s younger sister Betsy seems to be of marriageable age now, I suspect that her story is about to come - and if that’s the case, we’ll have to see more of Ewen. Or so I hope!

HASH(0x9d2d072c) out of 5 stars Tempting a HUSBAND, more accurately... 27 Dec. 2003
By Dr W. Richards - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Camille Croft has been in love with Eric Ford, her brother's friend, ever since she first met him. And she's not very good at hiding it, either. To her, in her own view a lumbering, large and plain woman who doesn't know how to behave in Society, he is the most handsome man she has ever seen. But, despite his kindness towards her, he treats her like a little sister.
Eric, though he does his best to hide it, is in love with Camille too. He won't act on his feelings, however, because he suffers from recurring bouts of malaria and, as he sees it, there is no guarantee that he will live a long life. He can be struck down by an attack at any time, and although he's recovered each time so far, it's not guaranteed. He feels that it wouldn't be fair to Camille to let her tie herself to a husband who could be an invalid, or worse.
Enter Nell Baynes, a woman every bit as beautiful as Camille feels herself plain - and Nell's cousin and guardian, who begins a courtship of Camille. Jealousy finally prompts Eric to tell Camille how he feels about her - but with about 150 pages of the book left to go, what kind of spanner is going to be thrown in the works?
This would, in my opinion, have been a much better book without the dramatic plot and the involvement of the secondary characters, Nell and her cousin. There was more than enough material for Layton in dealing with Eric's fears about his illness and Camille's lack of self-confidence and, instead of introducing irrelevant and uninteresting characters, she could have spent more time showing the development of Eric and Camille's friendship and Eric's growing realisation of his feelings for Camille. I would have enjoyed the book far more had Layton developed the plot in that way.
Nevertheless, as always it was good to see characters from previous books, though as in each case Layton seems to focus on Drum and Rafe and their spouses, with brief glimpses of Gilly and Damon. While Ewen Sinclair, one of my favourite characters from the series, does make an appearance in this book, it's almost entirely offstage, and Hathaway Wycoff is only mentioned.

HASH(0x9d2d0780) out of 5 stars A Tempting Treat! 22 Dec. 2003
By Ballerina Girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
As a fan of Edith Layton's other work, her latest book does not dissapoint. I found the main characters and their relationship fascinating, and the story was full of the passion, poetry, and sense of humor I've come to expect from this writer. This is one temptation you should indulge!

HASH(0x9d2d0bb8) out of 5 stars Tepid... 21 Nov. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I was excited when I bought Edith Layton's latest historical "To Tempt a Bride," but after finishing it I can't help but wonder where the "tempting" comes in? Eric Ford has apparently been in love with Camille, his friend's sister, for a long time; but his struggles with malaria and the ten year age difference over her, stop him from showing Camille his feelings for her. Ok, that sounds like a romance, but the problem with this book was the lack of chemistry between the protagonists. If Eric is in love, and Camille feels the same, I expected love scenes, longing, or something to indicate how they felt. There was none of that, and the fact that I had to wait until almost the end for a sex scene did not help matters. The story seems more about the relationship Camille develops with the mysterious Nell, than a romance. If you like tepid regencies, "To Tempt a Bride" is for you, but if you are looking for a good romance, skip this one.

HASH(0x9d2d0f6c) out of 5 stars another great read 21 Dec. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Here is another literate, lyrical romance from one of the masters of the Regency-set historical, with a hero to sigh over. Layton has always been a favorite, and this book is no disappointment.

HASH(0x9d2d0d38) out of 5 stars Great book!! 8 Feb. 2013
By K. April Holgate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
A really great read! Plenty of drama to keep the story interesting. Very well paced and nice narrative. A really sweet story at points and at other parts gut wrenching. Can't wait for more of the series!
