The author of this novel has written a historical romance with strong characters who behave in keeping with the era and she has made sure her facts related to the time are correct, for this I applaud her.

Setting in 1700's, the author really describes the places and situations perfectly. I can assume the author loves to read history or she used to live in this era. She definitely brings us back to the past. The topic is something new to be written in such era. There are tons of recipes exposed in this book, but that doesn't bore the readers (at least not for me). It's a combination of cooking book and classic drama. For me personally, reading Tempting Will McGlashen was a yummy experience!
This hero is yummy on a stick. Lurv the title, and Will is hot, hot, hot!
Thoroughly enjoyed this book. I loved the historical time period, and the real life characters that appeared in it - Mary Ingles and Colonel George Washington.
DNFed at 31% Liked the hero and heroine in this Shenandoah Valley set American colonial historical, struggled with the romantic arc, editing errors and spectre of Native American conflict hanging over the story. Not for me.Review copy given to me by the author.
