Could this infamous rake…

…finally have found his countess?

Part of The Sinful Sinclairs. When Lucas, Lord Sinclair, receives a mysterious summons from a Miss Olivia Silverdale he’s skeptical about whether he can help her. But Olivia, although eccentric, is in earnest about her quest to restore her late godfather’s reputation. Lucas’s curiosity is piqued, and not just by Olivia’s intelligent eyes and lithe form. A new challenge quickly presents itself: keeping Miss Silverdale at arm’s length!


The Earl’s Irresistible Challenge is the first book in a new series, “The Sinful Sinclairs” by author Lara Temple. I’ve been waiting for this one since I first heard about the Sinclairs in a previous book of Ms. Temple’s and I must say it was well worth the wait! It was absolutely perfect and I loved every moment of it. What a fantastic start to what I expect to be an excellent series.

Lucas is reluctantly the Earl of Sinclair after the infamous death of his father in a duel. Chase and Samantha his younger siblings stories will follow after this one. We do meet Chase in this story and I must say I am intrigued and can’t wait to read his story in the future. But for now, I have fallen for Lucas! He was a fabulous hero and it was an absolute pleasure to see him fall for Olivia.

Miss Olivia Silverdale was such a refreshing and entertaining heroine. Lucas describes her as relentless, she definitely is that and so much more. She’s the type of person who will go to any length to help those she cares for. She has such a wonderful personality and you can’t help but love her from the beginning. The chemistry and dialogue between these two were fabulous!

With a gorgeous cover, a mystery to solve and fabulous characters this was a perfect story to start out my 2019 reading! I highly recommend this book and can’t wait to see what author Lara Temple has in store for the rest of the Sinclairs.
