TEMPTATION ISLAND is a hot erotic romance that brings on the heat, and not just because it's set in Hawaii.
Ric wants to save his family plantation in Hawaii by turning it into a bed and breakfast, but he needs some financing to get the project off the ground. His long lost and insanely rich grandmother is just the ticket. When she tells him that she will be in Hawaii soon to meet him, he thinks he may be able to convince her to give him the money.
Well, imagine his surprise when it's not his grandmother who meets him but Jenny, a beautiful young woman from a small Minnesota town who was sent in his grandmother's place. He's supposed to be convincing her that his bed and breakfast is a worthwhile project, not getting her in bed, but there's something about her that makes him want Jenny so badly. And when Jenny and Ric give into their passion, they begin an erotic adventure that will change their lives.
This story was so cute. I loved Jenny. She was very fresh, real, and had a wide-eyed innocence about the world that was unusual to read about. She is in such a contrast to Ric who lived a hard life and was jaded.
The plot was fun and light and moved along quickly. Before I knew it, I was at the end of the story and I didn't realize I had been reading for so long.
Jenny and Ric had a chemistry that was palpable from the moment they met. Even though they both thought it was not in their best interests, but they just couldn't stay away from each other. They were incredibly hot together. And Lorie O'Clare really knows how to bring on the steam when writing a sex scene.
TEMPTATION ISLAND has great characters, a fun plot and some super sizzlin' scenes. I was reading this during an extremely rainy weekend, and I was instantly transported to the sun and sand of Hawaii. I was so sad when it was over and I had to come back to my east coast rain. But it was extremely fun while it lasted!
