C J Fallowfield - The Temptress

*Contains adult themes
**Review by Susan

There’s just something about a French accent, something that conjures images of romance, sex and passion. There’s a reason French is called ‘the language of love.’

Lulu McQueen runs an exclusive honeytrap agency, to test the fidelity of rich men for their suspicious partners. While her business flourishes and her track record in the field remains unbroken, earning her the nickname of The Temptress, her personal life isn’t so successful.

A trip to Paris, years ago, led to the most erotic encounter of her life with Luc, a charismatic, dominant, irresistible Frenchman. For one night she experienced bliss on a scale she’d never encountered and fled in the morning, ashamed of herself, but her Parisian one night stand was burned into her memories and no one since had compared.

With no one available on short notice, Lulu steps in to lure Mrs. Le Grand’s rich husband, for an extortionately high fee. Lulu’s in for the shock of her life when she finds her mark at the hotel bar. Luc Le Grand still has a face and body to make Adonis weep. He exudes confidence, masculinity and raw sex appeal.

The question now isn’t whether Lulu can tempt him, but whether she can resist him, retain her reputation and secure her fee, or whether she’ll fall under Mr. Le Grand’s spell. Again.

The Temptress, Lulu McQueen is a strong, confident and successful young woman who has a thriving business, Sweet Temptations. But as we progress through the book we are taken on a trip down memory lane with Lulu. How she despite trying to find someone suitable to come into her life, as well as her home. But no one seems to ever reach that standard.

A hen weekend to Paris would find a man, Luc that would be the cause of her unrest. How could anyone compare to the Frenchman...

"...takes what he wants, excels at what he does and never fails to live up to his promises..."

He's pretty hot. And he's got it all! Luc comes back into her life after being hired by a horrid woman. Only to be confronted by the one night stand Lulu had never given up on all those years ago. No one lived up to him. Would anyone?

"My cravings for her ran so deep the Grand Canyon would be displaced as a natural wonder of the world."

The struggle through their relationship, Lulu letting him into her life and heart was an incredible journey. I was sceptical that I knew where this story would go...but the twists and turns had me hooked. The passion, love and boisterousness of all the characters was amazing.

"I'll love you all with a fire more intense  than the ninth circle of hell...I didn't even know I was capable of such intense feelings or emotions...You stole my heart and it has been missing ever since."

Five out of five story. A definite page turner and I can't wait to read more from C J Fallowfield (this was my first of her books!).
