Must Read!!

Tantalizing Maria is the last book in The Temptation Series. I personally have not read the other six books in the series but after finishing Tantalizing Maria I'll be starting book one. Tantalizing Maria can be read as a stand alone but you should read the whole series cause different characters appear through out the book.

The twisted love story between Maria and Jeff goes back to when they were barley out of high school. Where they hopeless fall in love with each other but one terrible night chances the rest of their lives. Jeff pledges guilty to a crime he didn't commit and Maria does something that Jeff will never understand and he comes cold and heartless in prison.

Thirty years of passed between Maria and Jeff. Maria got married and had a family and Jeff is a free man. Maria tells Jeff her darkest secret that will change their relationship and give them a second chance but Jeff is scared that old history will ruin their happy ending. So the question is will Maria and Jeff have their happy ending after 30 years of being separated?

Helen Hardt has simply out done herself yet again! This is truly a roller coaster of emotions that will leaving you wanting more and cheering Maria and Jeff's story on! I completely fell in love with their story.
