Publisher's Summary

Enjoy heart-meltingly beautiful and toe-curlingly sexy romance in Tempted by Love, an emotionally riveting story about a man who has lost it all and carries a torturous secret, a divorced single mother who has everything to lose, and the little girl who helps them heal. Fall in love on the sandy shores of Silver Island, home to coffee shops, boat races, midnight rendezvous, and the sexy, sharp-witted Steeles.

In Tempted by Love:

Years ago, best-selling 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....

Audiobook Review:  I read Tempted by Love before I listened to it. As I read the book, I could hear that tones and voices that Jock would sound like, and I am thrilled that Brian Pallino matched what I had imagined.  Brian Pallino, narrator, did an amazing job telling Jock’s story. Jock’s story is full of emotion, heartbreak, and love that I hear in every word that I listened to. Jennifer Mack, narrator, did a perfect job of telling Daphne’s story. Daphne’s strength, love, and loyalty shined through in every word I heard. As always, Melissa Foster found the perfect narrators to tell her story.

eBook Review:  Jock has my heart. I knew from the first time I met him that his story would break my heart and bring me to tears and it did. His life has not been easy, and his grief had taken over his life until he met a man that pushed him to move past it while learning to live again. He meets Daphne and sparks fly but he must learn how to open his heart to her little girl before they can move forward. Hadley, Daphne’s daughter, has Jock wrapped around her fingers and Jock knows that his life will not be complete without her in it. He looks at his past, sees what his future could be and does all that has to be done to find his HEA.

Daphne is a single mother who wants the one man who cannot be around her daughter. She is strong enough to know that she cannot put herself before Hadley’s happiness and makes that hard decision to not start a relationship with Jock. Until Jock realizes that he must have both of them and he lets Daphne see how much he is trying and how much he can love them. I love how strong Daphne is. She stays true to herself and Hadley all while opening her heart again to love.

In true Melissa Foster style the story of Jock and Daphne will tug at your heart and make you believe in true love.
