Years ago, bestselling author Jack “Jock” Steele lost his girlfriend and baby in a horrific accident that drove a wedge between Jock and his family, keeping him from sharing a devastating secret. An aging philanthropist saved him from the brink of despair, and for a decade Jock cared for his ailing friend who became his family. Now his friend has passed away and left him a fortune—on the condition that he publishes another book. Jock is floundering, unsure how to rebuild the life he’d walked away from, much less find his muse, have another relationship with a woman, or even think about having a family of his own. But he can’t get his sweet, sexy new friend, single-mother Daphne Zablonski out of his head, and her adorable toddler must know something he doesn’t, because she wraps her tiny fingers around his heart and won’t let go.

Daphne has been through the wringer with her ex-husband and doesn’t believe true love is in the cards for her. Friends she can handle, but letting a man see her mom bod naked? Especially someone as strikingly handsome and unbelievably sexy as Jock? No, thank you. Besides, she has a toddler to chase after and enough fictional boyfriends to fill her lonely nights. If only her book boyfriends could make her body tingle the way one look from her mysterious neighbor does.

As Jock and Daphne’s friendship turns to something too tempting to deny, their lives take an unexpected turn. Can a man who has lost everything find redemption with a woman who has everything to lose? And then there’s that secret…

 

Melissa Foster is on fire with the kick off to her new Steeles at Silver Island series! In TEMPTED BY LOVE we quickly fall in love with Daphne’s little girl Hadley who has her heart set on making sure Jock is hers. The story line is emotional, the characters are endearing and the family and friends around them add so much depth to their story. I loved Silver Island and the Steeles and can’t wait for more from this family. What a ride!

Jack “Jock” Steele is a bit of a mystery at first, but it doesn’t take long before Daphne has unraveled his history and we feel so much for this guy who’s had it rough over the years. Watching him begin to heal and feel again is heartwarming.

Daphne Zablonski is a doll and quickly steps into the protective mother roll as she watches her little girl’s heart hurt as time and again Jock runs away from her. Watching him start to fall under her spell is so rewarding, and their passion for each other is off the charts HOT!

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves an emotional, family and friend centric plot that adds another dimension to the steamy romance taking place as they fall in love.
