Tempt Me Series
Nina Valentine is done with New York. After spending the last year struggling to make it as a painter, all she has to show for it are bills she can’t pay. Out of money and sick of struggling, she decides it’s time to pack it up and head back to her hometown in New Hampshire.
When she meets Ian Sinclair at her going away party, Nina’s instantly attracted to his dark, smoldering looks and lean athletic body. When he asks her back to his apartment, she’s willing to overlook the fact that he’s a high-powered lawyer. It’s just for one night, and guys as gorgeous as Ian don’t come around every day.
Ian has never had a problem getting women into his bed, but after his hot night with Nina, all he wants is more of her. So he makes the curvy painter a deal – stay in the city for a few weeks and he’ll take care of everything.
Nina agrees, even though she knows better than to get attached. He’s a rich corporate suit, she’s a struggling artist. But as the connection between them deepens and Ian takes her to places she’s never been – both in and out of the bedroom – Nina doesn’t know how much longer she can resist.
What started off as a fling with Ian Sinclair is now a full-on love affair, and Nina Valentine can hardly believe her good fortune. Life with Ian gets more delicious every day, and after years of struggle all she has to worry about is her art.
But it’s not long before her doubts resurface and she’s once again wondering if she fits in Ian’s world. As generous as he is, she hates taking his money, and everyone from her own mother to Ian's friends seems to think less of her for it.
Alone in their little love nest the two of them make sense, but as soon as they let the outside world in, it all starts to fall apart. People are starting to talk, and she doesn’t like what they’re saying. Even worse, she’s starting to believe them.
