When a woman is the magnet for the wrong man, it takes a bad boy to break old habits.
Carolina Rodriguez is a large animal veterinarian on a mission to escape South Florida and her overprotective family. Willing to do just about anything, she accepts a job in Annona, Texas over the Internet from a family connection.
At her cousin’s wedding, she runs into Matt, a handsome Texan in the church parking lot. Matthew McLemore is more than gorgeous, he’s Carolina’s new boss, and needs her help to determine why his cattle keep dying. Matt’s instantaneous attraction to Carolina sorely tempts him to push the boundaries of their work contract, but a roll in the hay may prove too volatile to handle. Until she arrives on his ranch and is too hot to resist.

Carolina refuses to admit Matt’s raw sexuality is more than overpowering or that she's the least bit tempted by this smooth-talking bad boy. But by the time the pathology lab reports comes back, they’ve explored every inch of each other. All of a sudden, this fiery affair is more than just a fling. And when a past flame threatens to overwhelm their new found romance, Matt must find a way to stake his claim to Carolina's heart before it's too late.
Warning: Contains a smoking mess of scorching love scenes.
Ice may be needed for blazing imaginations.

Tempted by Trouble is fast paced contemporary romance taking place in Texas with a smokin' hot rancher, Matt, as the hero and a feisty if not a little vulnerable Cubian American heroine, Carolina.

The sexy scenes start from the beginning of the book and it is chock full of them. Matt and Carolina have no problem in the sex department, that is sizzling. The communications department is a whole other story. When Matt hires Carolina, a large animal vet, to find out what is killing the cattle on his ranch he never suspected she would be a petite curvy Latina with a quick temper and a connection to him that he can't deny.

I thought this was a good story and had a bit of a mystery element to it with the cattle dying of unknown causes,
it was fast paced and a good length, Matt seemed to be a good guy if not very good at communicating his feelings, Carolina seemed to be a bit immature in her reactions to Matt and the whole relationship issue. I did find that at times some rather cheesy references were made to part of the anatomy (my favorite was was hot love vice) but over all an enjoyable book.

  1. Carin,
    Thank you (Gracias) for sharing Tempted by Trouble. You're the first person to bring the foreground that this is a multicultural (Cuban American)romance. *clapping* I love and miss the Cuban culture infused within South Florida. Growing up in Miami, I found some inspiring friends and "family." A rich experience. To this day, the scents linger in my mind: Cuban coffee and cigars at corner cafes. *SIGH* Again, thanks and big ABRAZO (HUG)for this post.
