What other book might you compare Temptation to and why?
I would compare Temptation to "Tamed by a Highlander" and "Ravished by a Highlander" because of the Scottish setting and superb narration. Jude Deveraux's story is excellent and Carrington MacDuffie does an amazing job conveying male and female voices in Scottish and American accents.
Which scene was your favorite?
While several scenes were compelling, I was "hooked" when Temperance arrived at the rural Scottish estate dripping wet and James refused to let her in. Without giving away the ending, I also enjoyed the last scene that took place in New York.
Any additional comments?
I purchased this book because of the author and narrator – two of my favorites. I was NOT disappointed because it contains everything: an epic romance, intriguing mystery, villains, heroes, heroines, and a lavish setting. The beautiful and headstrong Temperance O’Neil appears to have been born at the wrong time, as she finds it difficult to be taken seriously as a New York career woman. Forced to accompany her mother and new stepfather to Scotland, Temperance is required to become the housekeeper and secret matchmaker for her stepfather’s handsome but resistant nephew, James. Though many have tried before her, Temperance is determined to find James a wife because her stepfather has promised to release her trust fund and allow her to return to New York if she succeeds.

An enjoyable listen. Several scenes made me smile. Although it does follow the romance novel "formula", I liked the way the heroine grew over the course of the story.
The narrator's voice is quite pleasant, but some parts sound more "read" than performed. I still enjoyed her narration.
