Temptation by Kelsey Karson
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Fate has twisted the knife in Trish Anthony’s back one too many times. The man who has haunted her dreams and heated her fantasies has strolled into her life for a second time; only this time, he’s become her stepbrother. Even if he felt anything for her, he is now off limits, but this doesn’t stop her from fantasizing about him, or from comparing every man she meets to him.
Logan Carmichael has kept focused on his company and denied himself the one woman who could complete his life—Trish. He tries to fill the void with other women that remind him of her and when this doesn’t work, he decides to take action. No longer is the work he once loved enough to give him happiness.
When the past rears its ugly head, bringing with it devastating news of murder, betrayal, and adultery, can Trish hold on to what’s important?
Talk about HOT!!! While this is very much a stepbrother romance it is also a second chance romance. I really love both Trish and Logan. They were both just so real and let me tell you that Logan was everything you want in a stepbrother. I mean if you are gonna fall for your stepbrother he better be hot and demanding! He knew what he wanted but convincing Trish of that is something else. Of course more than convincing her are the secrets that come out that could affect their future.
The front door opened just then and her father stepped through, catching them in the middle of things and shattering the mood. Jumping off Logan, she grabbed her discarded shirt. Shit!
“What the hell is going on?” Her father stalked into the house, his eyes wide with anger. “Who the hell are you?”
“Logan? What’s going on?” The woman that Trish hadn’t noticed at first followed closely behind her father.
“That’s your son?” Her father took a side glance at his new bride before quickly looking back at them.
“Yes, Mr. Anthony. I’m Logan Carmichael.” He didn’t offer his hand, but he did stand up, placing himself between her and her father.
“What the hell do you have your hands on my daughter for? She’s your stepsister!” Anger had his words echoing off the walls.
“David…I’m sure there’s a logical reason.” Nancy laid her hand on his arm. “Right, Logan?”
“Oh sure, Mom.”
“What could that be? She tripped and landed on you with her shirt off?”
“That’s enough, Dad.” Suddenly, everything that had been building up within her was ready to be let loose. “Logan and I dated years ago and things just happened.”
“Just happened! He’s now your stepbrother. Things like that can’t just happen.”
“Like how you killed Mom?” The words were out of her mouth before she had a moment to think things through.
