Dashing and disreputable…
Now he’s back in society’s ballrooms!
Whispers of Captain Kit Carrington—now Lord Westford—have long scandalized the ton…so his arrival at the season’s most anticipated ball sends society’s gossips into a frenzy! Miss Genevieve Maitland needs his help to find an eligible match for her sister but assumes he’ll be reluctant to help the family that rejected him. Yet after one spine-tingling waltz with Kit, sensible Genny finds he’s not her opponent…but a very tempting ally!

About the author

Lara Temple's life has been about changes - she has lived on three continents and gone from the military to Wall Street to wife, mom, and philosophy student. But with one constant - ever since she can remember she has been writing stories. In 2014 she took the plunge and sent a manuscript to Harlequin's SYTYCW contest which has come out (March 2016) as  "Lord Crayle's Secret World" and her second novel "The Reluctant Viscount" is due this summer.

Editorial Reviews

"Lara Temple’s A Match for the Rebellious Earl is a beautifully written love story.... It’s a passionate, gorgeously romantic story about two people at crossroads in their lives; the leads are so well-written and fully-rounded that they simply leap off the page, the chemistry between them sizzles, and Ms. Temple’s talent for writing sparkling, witty dialogue shines once again. Highly recommended" - All About Romance

"Lara Temple didn't disappoint…. I absolutely loved the characters, they are pretty unique and intriguing. I highly recommend to read this regency romance, it caught my attention from the first page and I've eagerly read it." - Goodreads

"This is a wonderful story. I thoroughly enjoyed it and know I will read it again and again. It concerns the love story of two exquisitely drawn characters who leap off the page fully formed and stay in the mind long after the book has ended. All in all, this is a gorgeous book: a social commentary with depth, a witty, romantic and sexy love story with wonderfully vivid characters. I just loved it." - Goodreads

"Fantastic, addictive and satisfyingly passionate, this was all I needed and more. Such wonderful characters. I adore Lara’s books, she has a wonderful gift and I always find her books enjoyable and entertaining." - Goodreads

"Expertly-drawn characters, clever dialogue, impeccable storytelling with humor, historical tidbits, and emotional depth, and sigh-inducing romance made this another excellent read from Ms. Temple." - Goodreads

"Lara Temple’s story-telling capabilities grow with each successive book. Reading this book was an absolute pleasure and I cannot recommend A Match for the Rebellious Earl highly enough." - Goodreads

"Another winner from Lara Temple. Sweet moments, funny moments, and Temple's usual stellar prose made this a heartwarming, page-turning read." - Goodreads

"This was a lovely story with some wonderfully sparkling dialogue.... Beautifully written and engaging. Recommended for all fans of Regency romance." - Goodreads

"Overall, this is yet another triumph from Lara Temple, who only seems to get better with each passing book. The story is full of romance, humour, family drama all amongst a cast of characters who spring to life and keep the reader engaged throughout. The end will leave you smiling (if somewhat teary eyed) and the characters will be remembered long after the last page has been turned." - Goodreads
