“We can’t see each other again…
and I think you know why.”
After an impulsive one-night stand with Jacob Stone, Teagan Hunter is appalled to discover he’s a lawyer intent on suing her media mogul brother. They’re done. But Jacob pursues the understated heiress…and Teagan is tempted. Could the powerhouse attorney be the one to give Teagan the new lease on life she desperately needs? Or is this a star-crossed scandal waiting to explode?
Do you accept who you are? The wise choices as well as the mistakes. Do you believe you are the creator of your own destiny or more a product of the generational blood that flows through your veins?
Teagan Hunter, the heroine of The Case for Temptation, knows precisely who she is, where she’s from and what she wants. Teagan is part of a family that wields spectacular power and has accumulated staggering wealth. But Tea decided to go her own way, find her own path, and if her family wants to call her The Wild Child, no skin off her nose.
Then she meets Jacob Stone, a cut-throat attorney with a family history which is the antithesis of her own. Jacob is so not her type, from the color of his eyes to the next level emotions he stirs deep inside of her.
Here’s an excerpt:
Jacob Stone was so not her type.
As Teagan turned to see him close the door, she reminded herself again, I like blue eyes. Lively and ocean-deep. Tender and kind. The preference went as far back as her first crush freshman year.
Mr. Stone’s eyes were the kind of focused amber gold that, combined with the jet-black hair, reminded her of a panther—a mesmerizing, muscled male who hadn’t eaten in a week. As Jacob slid the key card onto a marble side table and headed over, that hungry gaze locked onto hers and Teagan’s jaw almost dropped. He even moved like a big cat. Completely captivating, and she was a dog person!
As he drew nearer, Teagan puzzled more. In relationships, she wanted openness and honesty. As much as they had talked this evening, she’d gotten the impression that Jacob was more about control and charm—subtle when need be, direct when the time was right. When they had danced earlier, with his mouth a hair’s breadth away from hers, her body had tingled in all the right places. Caution had melted away. Again, not her usual reaction. True substance, real feelings, including the sizzling sexual kind, needed time to grow, didn’t they?
Teagan knows who she is, what she wants. And, ready or not, she wants Jacob Stone. Of course there are obstacles that work to keep them apart…secrets and circumstances that Tea could never have imagined. She has so much more to learn about Jacob…and, as a consequence, about herself.
How have you changed over time? Tastes in food, friends, books, men…?
