A Lesson in Temptation is my first Audra North and I have a feeling its not going to be my last This woman can write the heck ut Limey Gumshoe of a novella delivering an emotional and scorching read that is so very worth your time It s not the cover alone that isut Maritime Academy Graduate: Memoir Of A Third Mate of this world sexy when it comes to A Lesson in Temptation what lies inside is mind numbingly soA Lesson in Temptation is partf the Stanton Family series With two full length novels and ne novella already published in the series A Lesson in Temptation reads just fine as a standalone and tells the story f Julie Stanton and Adam Harkness Adam is highly ambitious studious and doesn t have time for distractions like falling in love Having led a life that had been nearly at the edge Trouble Looking for a Place to Happen of being poverty stricken had made Adam a stickler for hard work and even with a PhD under his belt with an impressive position as a Professor at the Colombia University Adam still feels the need to push himself to achieve When a friendffers a place at a dance class Tango for Beginners as a gift Adam shows up ut f respect for the friend than anything else He has no plans whatsoever f returning for a second class But the moment he walks in and lays eyes n Julie his intentions seems to crawl From Paella to Porridge: A Farewell to Mallorca and a Scottish Adventure out the nearest window Julie had been thene time he had nearly succumbed to temptation and the On Toby's Terms one who had got awayf sortsFor Julie seeing Adam Hotness walk into the classroom had made her realize that when it comes to Adam the attraction that had sizzled through her is very much alive even three years after The Adam that takes her in his arms looks even tense and distant than he had been back then and it makes Julie practically itch to make him loosen up just a little What follows as a reluctant Adam finally gives in is as delicious as the glossy cover itselfWhat made A Lesson in Temptation stand ut is the fact that Audra managed to deliver an emotionally well rounded story in just a mere 100 plus pages Adam s ambitions his fears and struggles comes ut perfectly making him a mix Max Lerner: Pilgrim in the Promised Land of delicious contradictions the studious and serious sidef him that wars with the sexy sinful and playful side His ambition to verachieve is such that it blinds him to the best thing that happens to his life and this fact gave the story that bit f angst that made the novella that much endearingJulie comes Indiscretion off as this bright and sunny personality when compared to Adam and the fact that Adam totally misreads Julie s character gave a few surprises about Julie to the reader as well Julie s philosophy in life is simple Try and be happy as much as possible And given her past I admired Julie uite muchn the point Indiscretion of her being able to move beyond all that and simply just have a positive attitude towards lifeIf you want a short read that would give you an emotionally satisfying story with a hotter than sin hero whose reluctant attraction to the heroine makes things that much fiery then this is the read for youMost definitely recommended Rating 45Caliber SEAL GREAT READ For reviews uotes visit wwwmaldivianbookreviewercom My thanks to NetGalley and Entangled Publishing LLC for providing me with a free copy for an honest reviewThis was a very fast paced novella that spanned a periodf 5 6 weeks and Tango classesA former student and her TA find themselves in a Tango class for two very separate reasons however the attraction they had a few years ago is still very much thereBoth have their reasons as to why they work so hard but whilst he excludes the fun she is determined and works hard to make sure that she has someIt s a sweet and fun and enjoyable read that seems to finish very uickly For this review and visit my blogTo be honest I wasn t expecting much from A Lesson in Temptation Lately a lot f the short romances I have read have been disappointing so I was unfairly expecting this to be as well Short romances are hard to get right because they essentially rely n Soul Dust one thing chemistry You can have a perfectly written novella with well rounded characters and an engaging storyline but if there is no chemistry in the romance then the novella is going to fall flatn its face A Lesson in Temptation wasn t perfect I had issues with it 4 Stars From the vertical tango to the horizontal tango this was a fun flirty sexy novellaI was charmed by Adam s

Difficult to dance tango That means straight Audra North has placed herself firmly Whore Stories: A Revealing History of the World's Oldest Profession on my autobuy list This lady can write a novella From thepening page A Lesson In Temptation grabbed and with every element I love to find in a full length novel albeit condensed and I had the most pleasurable lunch hourFinance Professor Adam Harkness isn t known as Prof Hotness for nothing Sexy witty and intelligent he is somewhat The Paper Wife of a workaholic When his friends sign him upn a 6 week dance course he s partnered with Julie Stanton ex student She wanted him then she wants him now and their lessons prove that the Tango is sexy Upright r horizontalSexy and sizzling Adam and Julie had a perfect chemistry he brooding and serious with a dirty thought process against her young confident and fun nature All I will say is that their like minded intelligence brings some very sexy action So if a short sensual and very sexy read with wit and a bit f tension and angst thrown in is what you crave then this is the book I could have happily read a full length book We, the People: Of Earth Elders on these characters but in

most part I really enjoyed this novella It is part f a series but can be read as a stand alone While the author gave the reader background knowledge Pig on her characters it wasn t until the endf the story that Julie and Adam learned about each Scipio Rising (Scipio Africanus other and what they learned was why they were both so driven Adam is working so hard so he can send money back to his

to put herselfut there and do Which is great advice for all f us who have been bullied in the past Don t let the bitches get us downMy nly complaint and it s silly is that the author in describing Julie s eyes compared them to brand new pennies Which I immediately thought Rim of the Pit (Rogan Kincaid, of as copper eyes and how creepy I m hoping she meant shiny and bright But that was just my
