    The author's comments and the Prologue pulled at my emotions from the beginning and I knew that Ramsey and Grace deserved to find a happiness that knew no bounds. This is a wonderful story of two special souls who needed each other, although it may have taken awhile to slowly come together.

    Grace Morgan was going to London and all she could think was "Good Lord this is going to be a disaster!" She was very intelligent but always seemed to be clumsy and a little awkward. She had to say positive that with the help of her guardian, Heathcliff, Viscount Kilpatrick and his wife Samantha, who had been her governess, she was determined to do her best.

    Having been raised by an unforgiving father, Ramsey , Marquess of Sterling, hated Scandal with a passion. He conducted himself so that he avoided it at all cost. He and his friend's owned Temtations a gaming club and they depended on each other. Kilpatrick is one of those friends who had just gotten married. He is asked to help Grace at the social events.

    Surprising he and Grace seem to be drawn to each other. Unfortunately Grace is being pursued by a man who is Ramsey's enemy and he is determined to put a stop to it.

    Kristin Vayden has written a wonderful story of acceptance with delightful exchanges between the hero and heroine with some suspense, Ramsey coming to grips with his past. Do not miss this book or any in this series! I have loved them all!

    Grace should never have come to Ramsey's office unattended. But how else was Grace to get his romantic attention?

    This is the first book I have read by this author but I hope it's not the last. I will certainly be on the lookout for other books by this new to me author. This story was a real page turner filled with laughter, unwanted love (at least by our hero) and a touch of danger from unwanted attentions from a man we shall call the villain in this story.

    I gave this book 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline, plot and characterization.

    Even though this is book #3 in this series and there are characters that tie these books together this one reads well as a standalone.

    I received a complimentary ARC of this book to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

    A well written engaging read I loved the verbal sparring between Ramsey & Grace. This is the third book in this delightful series & whilst it could be read on its own all three books are well worth the read. The characters are well formed, the pace is very good & I enjoyed it from cover to cover. There are some twists & turns along the way but this is very a much the story of two people falling in love & finding happiness. The one true revelation is Ramsey returning to his childhood home & finding himself with help from his housekeeper.

    My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read

While it could be read as a stand-alone I do think you should read the previous books in the series to fully enjoy this one. I’m going to describe this book as beware of helping out your friend and business partner with his ward if you truly intend to remain unmarried. Ramsey Scott, Marquess of Sterling discovers that (Iris) Grace Morgan ward to his business partner and good friend Lord Kirkpatrick is one of the most interesting and delightful women he has ever met but will he be able to overcome his past clouded by a disastrous first marriage and an extraordinarily nasty father who made him feel that he was never good enough and as well there seems to be a fair bit of competition for her hand including from an old enemy of his. I found Grace to be quite endearing and do recommend reading this book. Mild to medium steam.

    Grace had travel around where other young women her age have not, so she has a different take on life. Grace also is someone that is awkward and clumsy which she goes forward to be more graceful as her name. But she does have a misstep with society which brings Ramsey to step forward to help her, which leads to a unconventional friendship, but Grace wishes for more. Ramsey too is having feelings for Grace but he has always felt that he wasn't good enough because of his father's expectations. But of course feelings can't be overlooked for long.

    features an excellent romance and was an amazing conclusion to the

    series.

    Miss Iris Grace Morgan is hoping to live up to her name and show a bit of grace during her first season. But after a near disaster at her first event, Grace isn’t sure that’s going to happen. Ramsey Scott, Marquess of Sterling, avoids gossip and scandal like the plague but after witnessing Grace’s debacle, he cannot help but offer his assistance. However the more time Ramsay spends with Grace, the more he finds himself drawn to her. And after Grace unexpectedly shows up at Ramsay’s office in his club, the pair are unable to ignore their attraction any longer.

    Grace grew up travelling the world with her parents prior to their deaths resulting in Grace developing a different education than is typical for society ladies. She has a number of fascinating stories about the places she’s lived and I really enjoyed how she catalogued each new experience to compare to previous ones. Grace is bold, clumsy, and entirely unsure of herself when expected to behave as a proper lady.

    Ramsay was told his entire life by his father that perfection is the only acceptable option and everything else is failure. Ramsay has never been able to live up to his father’s expectations and it caused him to develop a bit of a complex as a result. Compounding those issues is the fact that Ramsay was married before and it ended in a disastrous divorce which in his father’s eyes was completely unacceptable.

    Grace and Ramsay hit it off instantly and find themselves immediately at ease with one another which is unusual for them. While Grace finds Ramsay a bit restrained and Ramsay finds Grace a bit wild, the pair still feel a connection. Their banter is fantastic and I enjoyed the way they’re able to make the other laugh. With Ramsay’s issues regarding scandal, the relationship does initially progress slowly. Thankfully Ramsay works through those issues pretty quickly and their relationship picks up speed from there. There are several fantastic kissing scenes with their physical relationship not progressing much further until nearly the end of the book.

    Throughout the book there are a number of scenes with Samantha and Heathcliff, the couple from the second book in the series. I really enjoy Grace’s friendship with Samantha and how supportive Samantha was of Grace. Plus I really like Samantha and Heathcliff as a couple so it was fantastic seeing them again. The couple from the first book, Liliah and Lucas, appear towards the end of the book and I enjoyed seeing them again as well.

    Overall

    was my favorite book in the series and I highly recommend these books for anyone looking for a great historical romance.

    We have the third and am assuming the last since Ramsey was part of the trio of Temptations. Ramsey is known amongst his friends as the proper one the one least likely to cause a scandal since he is deathly afraid of causing one since he did and it was a big one although truly not his fault. Iris "Grace) as she wants to be known now is coming to London for her first debut and she is terrified since she is so not good with all the ins and out required of Ladies of the Ton, she is brash and outspo

Grace is trying to be the good Ward and find a suitable bachelor but unfortunately catches the eye of an unsuitable one who also happens to have some type of beef with the trio of Temptations but mainly Ramsey..How will Ramsey stop it in time? Well grab a copy and Enjoy! Sad to say by to these guys and awesome women. Lila is still my favorite

    The Gentlemen of Temptation #3

    In this book the third owner of Temptation – Ramsey Scott, Marquess of Stirling – meets the woman he will marry. He is NOT looking for a wife and in fact believes he never will marry again. He is however a good friend and when asked by Heathcliff for assistance in the debut of his ward, Iris Grace Morgan well, Ramsey is definitely going to be there for his friend and business partner.

    Iris Grace Morgan is world traveled and as such has not been trained in the ways of being a lady. When suddenly orphaned she was given into the care of Heathcliff, the Viscount Kilpatrick. Samantha, now Heathcliff’s wife, was governess to Grace and has helped her as much as possible in the short period of time before Grace’s debut is to be made. Grace is worried that her lack of grace and knowledge of how to behave in society will embarrass her guardian and his wife and will also prevent her from making a good marriage – a love match – one like that of her parents and her guardian.

    So...we have stoic, upright, uptight, society savvy, scandal avoiding Ramsey meeting Grace and there for her while trying to retain his bachelor status. He has to deal with ghosts of his childhood before he is ready to take on happiness and perhaps a bride but he is there for Grace throughout the book. There is an interesting twist to his past that crops up in that someone from his past, with a rather iffy reputation, shows up and causes a bit of grief BUT all comes right in the end and there is a HEA for Grace and Ramsey. AND as the epilogue is four years in the future I am guessing this is the end of the series. I wouldn’t mind reading a book about John (the butler who for Heathcliff and also at Temptation) and the housekeeper Mrs. Marilla – there is definitely a story about them either together or independently!

    Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington-Lyrical Press for the ARC – This is my honest review.

    While I enjoyed this story and I liked Ramsey and Grace for the most part this series got a bit redundant. three friends from childhood all have scandalous first marriages and their wives are now dead then two of them marry sisters and the other marries the ward of one. a bit far fetched.

    plus Temptations which was a big pull for me in book one was hardly mentioned and not mentioned at all in book 2.

    the biggest flaw was that in the epilogue of book one Liliah and Lucas are said to have a son yet in the epilogue of this book they are said to have three daughters no mention of a son.

    it's an okay read but best with the whole series you would be lost reading this as a stand alone.

    Miss Iris Grace Morgan is doing her best to at least hold up to the "grace" part of her name, but what a struggle it is. Her guardian and his wife are about to launch Grace into society and she must be prepared for anything. Starting over should be easy, right?

    Ramsey Scott, the Marquess of Sterling, has worked all of his life to avoid scandal, but it's finally caught up to him. Having already been married and then divorced has made him feel as if he's a failure. Still, when Ramsey's friend asks him to help with Grace, Ramsey cannot deny him. Unfortunately, Grace is being pursued by the enemy. Can Ramsey put a stop to it before it's too late?

    THE TEMPTATION OF GRACE is the third installment in author Kristin Vayden's GENTLEMEN OF TEMPTATION series. I definitely recommend reading books one and two, FALLING FROM HIS GRACE and ESCAPING HIS GRACE, for the full effect. Back to TEMPATION OF HIS GRACE... I found it to be a little slow paced. It's obvious from Grace and Ramsey's first meeting, they feel an attraction to one another. However, it's a little more drawn out than I would like. I feel their love story sort of got put on the back burner while the rest of the story played out. All in all, the TEMPTATION OF HIS GRACE got it's happy ending and that was worth the read.
