If drama is your thing, then you need to read Tempted at Midnight by Cheris Hodges. This is a romance novel by an author that’s new to me, but Ms. Hodges has made a good first impression.
It all started with a kiss. Sylvie Gates sees sexy Erik Jordan at her best friend’s New Year’s Eve party and knows she has to get a kiss to ring in the new year. The two end up spending a magical night together, but Sylvie leaves before Erik awakens, so he never gets her last name or contact info. As luck would have it, Erik’s offices are being remodeled by, you guessed it, Sylvie Gates.
Both Sylvie and Erik are facing trying times in their personal and professional lives, which makes it hard to begin and maintain a new relationship. How much power is there in a single kiss?
Tempted at Midnight is an enjoyable read. The characters are well-developed. The plot is compelling and the dialogue is engaging. There’s plenty of drama to keep the reader entertained. I rate this novel 3 out of 5 stars and recommend it to those who enjoy dramatic romance. There is some explicit sexual content that may be inappropriate for sensitive readers.
My thanks to Kensington Books and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.
