Feature and Giveaway: Tempted by Love by Jennifer Ryan

She was this Montana Man’s greatest temptation . . .

Alina Cooke—little sister of his two best friends—is the last woman DEA agent Jay Bennett should be waking up next to on the day of her brother’s wedding. But their powerful attraction ignited a powder keg of desire, and their once simple friendship has just become impossibly complicated.

Alina’s always been steady, focused, and lived on the safe side of life. Jay is totally devoted to his dangerous job. She knows a future with him will be filled with worry that one day he won’t come home. She’s done it with her brothers. She’s not sure she can face that uncertainty with the man she loves. Yet being in his arms is a bad idea they keep repeating, again and again.

When Alina is run off the road, Jay fears his job has made her a target. But the threat in Alina’s life is closer than they think. As the enemy gets more ruthless, Alina proves she’s no easy target and Jay will do anything to bring them down. Because surviving and being together is the only thing that matters.

Check out the Montana Heat series:

Two hours and three beers later he made his way up to his room and flopped on the perfectly made bed with his back against the headboard. He stared at the black TV and listened to the silence, fighting the memories of him and Alina wrecking the bed that felt as empty as his heart.

He didn’t regret last night. In fact, doing it all over again nearly had him running to Alina. But his friendships with Caden and Beck mattered. They were like brothers to him. He didn’t want to disappoint or piss them off. This could affect the trust and bond they’d forged working side by side in the trenches.

But Alina was a grown woman with her own mind. She’d been all in last night. And he’d reveled in the way she gave herself over to him with complete abandon. So much so, he wanted more. A lot more.

She may have had second thoughts this morning, but there’d been that moment when she stared at him before she walked out and wanted to say something but held it back. He’d caught her looking at him throughout the reception and thought he’d seen a glimpse of the same look in her eyes that he felt inside. That what happened between them may have been impulsive, but doing it again was a temptation worth repeating.

Wishful thinking?

No one had to know.

It’d be their secret.

You hate secrets.

But he really wanted her and more of that happy feeling he found last night and woke up with this morning.

He wanted her like he’d never wanted anything in his life. If he didn’t do something, try, he’d regret it.

“Shit.” He rolled off the bed and headed for the door. He didn’t often give in to impulse or subject himself to the potential for utter humiliation, but tonight he threw caution to the wind again and headed to Alina’s room. He knocked on the door and it opened seconds later. Alina stood there with a glass of champagne in her hand wearing the hotel bathrobe loosely tied at her waist. He swept his gaze over her beautiful face, scrubbed clean of makeup, the swell of her breasts in the opening of the robe, and all the way down her gorgeous legs to her bare feet and sheer-pink painted toes.

She didn’t say anything, so he did. “I have a bad idea.”

She pushed the door wider, grabbed his shirt and tie in her free hand, and yanked him into the room. He took that as a “yes!” and bent, grabbed her by the ass, hauled her up so she wrapped her legs around his waist, and kissed her, igniting the fire between them all over again.
