Temptations are all around us. I’m tempted to eat the chocolate bar in our candy drawer. I’m tempted to sleep in during the week. I’m tempted to tell some people what I really think of them. 🙂 But I don’t give into any of those temptations. Why? Because in most cases there are consequences. Consequences I’m not willing to suffer for the sake of a few moments of pleasure.
When I was in my twenties and single I ran into temptation when I went out with my friends. Bars are great places to unwind, dance, have a few drinks. Not so great for meeting your soul mate. I’m not saying it isn’t possible to meet your soul mate at a bar. I know people who have. It’s just not the best place. Back then I romanticized everything but I was also realistic. I was tempted to give into the guys who just wanted in my pants but I didn’t give in. The consequences weren’t worth the pleasure.
When is it good to give into temptation? When the consequences are something you can handle. If I eat that chocolate bar I can mitigate the consequences by spending more time in the pool. When I can afford it, I always give into the temptation to buy a book. Yes, this post is about my latest release – Tempted to Sin 🙂 The temptation is subtle in each of the stories but the characters do have to make a choice. To give into what they want or not. And to accept the consequences.
On sale for 99 cents for a limited time! The price is going up to full price after Easter.
Would you be tempted?
Each of the stories includes some sort of temptation. Sometimes giving into temptation is a bad idea. But sometimes it’s a great idea.
In Satisfaction Guaranteed a wannabe succubus meets her match for her last assignment: The college boyfriend who broke her heart.
In Scale Deep a reporter learns more than she bargained for when she discovers that dragons are real… and they walk among us.
In School Bites a woman bumps into her high school crush at a reunion. Curiously he hasn’t aged a day in 15 years. When the bodies start turning up she finds out why.
Sweet, sexy dreams!
