They both want the same thing – St. Eden Studios.
Corporate raider Yvette Giardino intends to bring St. Eden Studios to its knees. It’s a job. One her grandmother’s health depends on. That Adam St. Eden will suffer isn’t personal. Until he awakens her sympathy and stirs her body in ways she can’t explain.
Adam wants one thing and one thing only – to protect the dream his grandfather began. But when the board demands he work with stunning Yvette, a woman he’d mistakenly indulged with in a little after-hours play, his world turns upside down. Missed meetings, unhappy clients, and nights of intense pleasure – he can blame one person. Yvette.
With his corporation crumbling around him, can Adam rise above the fallout and see his sexy temptress for what she really is – a victim of manipulation and a woman who desperately needs his love?
I’ve got a visitor today! Jill James is here with blurb, excerpt, and man candy all in honor of her novel Tempting Adam, Want some more? Read on…
Yvette pulled herself together with a jolt.
It’s a job. It’s a job. She repeated the mantra in her head in an endless loop, gazing into deep, blue eyes. This close, she noticed the subtle lines near his eyes from his outdoor living. If he had grown up in Hollywood, he would have had a facelift or two by now, instead of the natural look he pulled off quite well.
Adam helped her rise, his warm hand cupping her elbow. A tingle shot from her arm, to her chest, and to regions much farther south. A sexual moan almost escaped her lips. Yvette shook her head to clear the mental images of her and him and the hotel room. It didn’t help. Memories of that night still had the power to stir her senses. They hit Yvette in a place she didn’t think existed—her emotions.
His eyes darkened to indigo, and he leaned nearer. His fresh, evergreen scent enveloped her. Her head swam, and she tilted on the heels of her shoes. She berated herself for her juvenile behavior, unable to believe the She-shark of business might have met her match. At least in the sexual arena.
Adam wrapped an arm around her shoulders, led her to the bench outside the door, and sat beside her. “I hope you’re doing okay. I would’ve found you a seat inside, but they were getting back to work. I didn’t want anything else to delay the work schedule.”
Disbelief flooded Yvette while she replayed what had just happened. She needed to get a grip on herself and this job. Adam was nice enough overall, and was great—make that fantastic—in bed.
However, he was no ruthless businessman and knew next to nothing about Hollywood. He wasn’t the first CEO she’d taken down, and he wouldn’t be the last. It wasn’t personal.
Sounds like it’s gonna be!
Now that you’re hooked and you gotta have the rest of this book, here’s how to get it. And even get an authographed Kindle edition.

Ohhhh….Jill, I want to read this one sooooo bad. It’s on my list, I promise, I promise! And you know, no one — and I mean NO ONE — tops Robert Redford in his hay day. Dang, that man is gorgeous. Thanks for the delicious eye candy.
AJ, thanks. I pictured Robert Redford in his white dress uniform in The Way We Were the whole time I was writing Tempting Adam.
Going back a few years, but yeah, Robert was a hunk. Great picture. I have to say your cover is gorgeous, too.
Best wishes for great success with Tempting Adam.
Lynne, yes that picture is slightly old, but Man!!! Robert sure had the mojo going on.
You already know I loved the book, Jill. Redford’s always nice to look at, but I’m kinda partial to the guy on your cover!
Carol, yes Jimmy Thomas isn’t hard on the eyes either. I love the cover Rae Monet made for me.
Now I am going to see Robert Redford while reading reading Tempting Adam. I agree with Lynne. Your cover is gorgeous. And the blurb is very tempting. Reading it on my next trip, in less than a week.
Mona, thanks. Love to hear that people are trying Tempting Adam.
I love great, realistic conflict in a romance. Sounds like you’ve got it goin’ on. Love the cover, by the way.
Vonnie, I love conflict (in books, not real life) and doing the wrong things for the right reasons is always a good one.
Thanks for the interesting post. Love the blurb, and that cover is to die for! And yeah, doing the wrong thing for a good reason, well, we can forgive a hero for that, depending on his reason, you know? Some people may not always think his reason jives with their idea of good….
Julianne, thanks for the kind comments. My heroine is a corporate raider and she needs the money for her grandmother’s health care so she sees nothing wrong in what she is doing in the story.
