Publisher’s Description:

Travel back in time to Scotland with bestselling author Julia Kelly for this delightful second installment in her latest historical romance series, The Matchmaker of Edinburgh series. Accomplished matchmaker Moira Sullivan knows that sometimes, the most unlikely pair can be the most entertaining.

Only desperation could have driven Caroline Burkett to her brother’s home in Scotland, but desperate is exactly what she is. After suing her former fiancé for breaking their engagement and causing a scandal in the papers, her only hope of starting over is to enlist the help of Edinburgh’s famous matchmaker, Moira Sullivan.

Born to a butler and maid, Jonathan Moray fought hard to find his place in Edinburgh society. Now a powerful newspaperman, he can make or break a person’s reputation with his headlines, but Jonathan knows his success isn’t guaranteed. He needs salacious stories to keep his readers enthralled, and Caroline’s story is just the sort to sell papers in droves.

When Moira introduces Jonathan and Caroline at a salon, Caroline knows the editor is exactly the wrong man to associate with if she wants to find a husband and restore her reputation, but even as another, more suitable suitor begins to court her, she can’t deny the power of her attraction to Jonathan. Now she must ask herself if she’s strong enough to choose between the man who can give her a secure, quiet life, or the one who promises her a passion she’s never known.

My Thoughts:

I try not to miss a book by Julia Kelly.
This second book in the matchmaker’s series is an exceptional read.
Caroline Burnett is on the run from a scandal which was not of her own making. At the urgings of her now deceased mother she sued and won that suit, her fiance who jilted her. Now due to that very suit she finds herself almost penniless and in need of a husband and a new start. She heads for Edinburgh and her brother’s home as a nearly last resort. There she seeks the help of a matchmaker.

Johnathan Moray is the last man on earth that Caroline should find herself attracted to. He is a newspaperman who makes his living off of scandals such as the one that sent her running to Edinburgh. He is not without secrets of his own though.
Will their mutual attraction prove to be their undoing or will it survive another scandal of their own making?
I gave this book 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a high sensual rating of 4.5 of 5.0 flames.
There is passion abounded in this well written novel.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book via NetGalley from the publisher to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
