The Lady Tempts an Heir by Harper St. George – Review | Blog Tour

The Gilded Age Heiresses, Book 3


A fake engagement brings together a lady with bold and daring dreams, and the heir whose heart she captured—perfect for fans of Bridgerton!

Tall, dark, and brooding—to say that American Maxwell Crenshaw stood out in the glittering ballrooms of London is an understatement. He vowed never to set foot in England again, but when a summons from his father along with an ultimatum to secure his legacy has him crossing the Atlantic for the last time, reuniting him with the delectable Lady Helena March, he can’t deny the temptation she presents. Or the ideas she inspires…

Lady Helena March is flirting with scandal. Instead of spending her time at teas and balls in search of another husband, as is expected of a young widow, Helena pours her energy into The London Home for Young Women. But Society gives no quarter to unmarried radicals who associate with illegitimate children and fallen women, and Helena’s funding is almost run out. So when the sinfully seductive Crenshaw heir suggests a fake engagement to save them both—him from an unwanted marriage and her from scorn and financial ruin—Helena finds herself too fascinated to refuse the sexy American.

As their arrangement of convenience melts oh so deliciously into nights of passion, their deception starts to become real. But if Max knew the true reason Helena can never remarry, he wouldn’t look at her with such heat in his eyes. Or might the Crenshaw heir be willing to do whatever it takes to win the one woman he’s never been able to forget…

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.


After reading the previous two books in the series, I was eagerly anticipating the third installment The Lady Tempts an Heir. Will the American Maxwell Crenshaw, heir to the obscenely rich Crenshaw Empire, win the heart of the young widow Helena March?

I liked that neither of them deny their attraction towards each other. Maxwell hatches a plan of fake engagement which would serve both their ends. Helena agrees but she is skeptical of its outcome.

She is a feisty heroine fighting for the rights of the unmarried women and their children, while Max is attuned to his business. He loves his sisters dearly and believes in equal rights for men and women.

In a similar vein as the previous works in the series, this book is steamy too. However, I didn’t feel any of it was crude or just added for the sake of crafting a sexy tale. Moreover, Harper St. George gives equal space to gender issues in her story.

I can’t put my finger on the exact reason, however, I enjoyed the previous two books more.

Overall, I liked reading The Lady Tempts an Heir and would recommend to historical romance lovers.

Harper St. George

Harper St. George was raised in rural Alabama and along the tranquil coast of northwest Florida. It was a setting filled with stories of the old days that instilled in her a love of history, romance, and adventure. By high school, she had discovered the historical romance novel which combined all of those elements into one perfect package. She has been hooked ever since.

She lives in the Atlanta area with her husband and two children. When not writing, she can be found devouring her husband’s amazing cooking and reading. She would love to hear from you.
