Tempting the Deputy

Book 1, Men of Marietta

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Tough, taciturn and wounded in ways that no one else knows about, Marietta rancher and part-time Deputy Sheriff Logan Tate is a man in total control of his life. Until he catches British photographer Charlotte Foster hitchhiking and ‘insists’ she gets a ride into town in his squad car… 

After her run-in with Deputy Hardass, Charlie Foster is ready to ride her thumb right back out of Marietta the very next day. But that night, a trip to Grey’s Saloon fires up her imagination – and her wild side – when she overhears the town’s first responders panicking over how to come up with the money needed to repair Harry's House in just 90 days. 

Charlie has an ingenious solution to their problem, that might just require her to photograph twelve smokin’ hot guys naked. And, as luck would have it, also involves getting some much needed payback on Deputy Hardass–who isn't too enthusiastic about participating in the calendar shoot. 

But as he spends more time with Charlie, Logan can't ignore the chemistry sizzling between them. Can a man who lives by the rules fall in love with a woman who breaks all of his?

Fun sexy read

The first in a new series featuring the hotties from Marietta. This series picks up were the Bachelor Bake-off series left off now focusing on the town first responders as they are called on the help raise money for Harry's House. Deputy Sheriff Logan is all for helping and raising funds but a naked calendar? No. Freaking. Way. Even if the photographer is the lovely yet absolutely crazy woman he found on the edge of town. Dubbed Deputy Hardass by Charlie Foster, the photographer, is only the beginning of the ways she drives him crazy!!

This is a fun sexy read that you don't want to miss. I definitely recommend it.

Hot Men in Marietta

I was amazed reading Tempting the Deputy written by Heidi Rice, the first book in the Men of Marietta series. It is a heart wrenching story of lost faith in one’s supportive parents as maybe also in oneself. Logan Tate made sure to protect his younger brother from their father’s drunken behavior after the death of their mother. Now he hides those scars by being a tough, reserved, play by the rules deputy and rancher. As work on Harry’s House begins, an unexpected find is going to cost additional money the rescuers don’t have and now need to figure out a way to raise these funds before they lose the house. Charlotte Foster is a world renowned photographer, neglected by her wealthy socialite parents is in Marietta to take pictures for a book she is working on. Her unexpected meeting with Deputy “Bad-Ass” Tate had her overhearing the guys talking and planning. Charlotte pitches an idea that could raise the money, a calendar featuring the men of Marietta. As she works on the calendar shots, staying with Logan and his brother she begins to want more than she ever did before, to stay in one place and be loved.

This story really resonated with me, exemplifying that hope and love does exist. I struggle, on a daily basis, to understand how someone could abuse, neglect, or mistreat another person. Ms Rice did an outstanding job exemplifying this in her writing and plot line. I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in one day. I highly recommend this book to other readers.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
