"I SWEAR, MISS CANTRELL, YOU WOULD TRY THE EVERLOVIN' PATIENCE OF A SAINT!"
Deputy Game Warden Bram Killoran is certainly no saint, and he has wanted headstrong Kinley Cantrell since the day he first saw her outside Crowheart's Paradise Saloon – backing a burly drunk three times her size up against a hitching rail and giving him a truly inspired and colorful upbraiding for mistreating his horse.
Kinley's determination to defend herself and the animals she loves will make her Bram's unlikely ally. They are irresistibly drawn to one another, but when her passion and spirit clash with his tangled conflict of duty and desire, not only their hearts will be in danger, but their very lives as well.
Tender and touching, full of drama and detail, it brings all the emotion and adventure, suspense and romance readers have come to expect from author LORRIE FARRELLY.
TERMS OF TEMPTATION. a Readers' Favorite 5 Star novel, continues the lives and loves of the Cantrell and Devlin families, following the best-selling TERMS OF SURRENDER and TERMS OF ENGAGEMENT.

TERMS OF TEMPTATION by Lorrie Farrelly is an enchanting romance story with a twist of the paranormal. I know little of the historical era, Wyoming in 1905, so I will make no deeper comments on its historical verisimilitude but from all perspectives it feels well researched and developed.
The characters are well developed and engaging. The main character, Kinley, is somewhere between Dr Dolittle and a spunky heroine ready to take on the world. She and her menagerie of animals are always good for a surprise, leaving the leading man baffled, enchanted and sometimes a little lost. Being lost is good for men. He is slightly gruff, slightly awkward and very male.
The only drawback of the story might be that the characters are, in places, unnecessarily stereotypical. In places it feels as if the interaction between the two characters is unnecessarily awkward in order to heighten the conflict which leaves the reader a little uncomfortable, like a cat rubbed the wrong way. The humour in animal and human form however rescues the interactions and brings a smile to the reader. Though the romance itself can get lost through it.
Yes, the romance. I loved the tension between the two characters, the way they find their way. Yes, in places it is awkward, but the heat is there. This is impressive, more so as it is most prevalent when they are not having sex.
So, is this worth reading? Definitely. It is a fun and enjoyable read. It has moments which feel too farfetched, moments which feel uncomfortable, but overall it is a very well written, engaging story.
