Tempting Mr. Jordan
After four unsuccessful London seasons, Lady Julia Tenwick despairs of ever making a love match. With spinsterhood looming on the horizon, she and a friend set sail for America on one last adventure. When her travels take her to northern Maine, Julia meets a reclusive but handsome artist, whose rudeness masks a broken heart Julia feels compelled to mend.
Still haunted by the betrayal and death of his pregnant wife two years before, Geoffrey Jordan is determined never to risk his heart again. Certainly not with the gorgeous and impetuous aristocrat who intrudes upon his small-town solitude, and is far too similar to his late wife to tempt him to take another chance on love.
But when Julia and Geoffrey find themselves united in a reckless plan to save Julia’s friend from ruin, they discover that temptation is impossible to resist.
About Marin McGinnis (Cleveland, Ohio Author)
I am Marin McGinnis, author of Victorian era romance. I have lived almost half my life in a tree-lined, unabashedly liberal suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. I have been married to the same great guy for over 20 years, and have one teenage son. We all live together in a 100 year-old house with our two dogs, Larry and Sneaky Pete.
Although I've been a voracious reader ever since I could make sense of words on the page, I came fairly late to writing. I dabbled with writing a mystery in my 20s, but didn't start writing in earnest until after I discovered historical romance in my late 30s. While my very first book will languish under the bed, the next book, Stirring Up the Viscount, won two contests in 2013 and was published by The Wild Rose Press in January 2015. My second book, Secret Promise, was released by The Wild Rose Press on October 30, 2015. The third book featuring the Tenwick family, Tempting Mr. Jordan, releases December 19, 2016.
I am a member of the Romance Writers of America, as well as its Northeast Ohio, Hearts Through History, and Kiss of Death Chapters.
