Temptation Bay

ABOUT THE BOOK:  Anna Sullivan brings us the first book in her witty new contemporary romance series set off the coast of Maine. TEMPTATION NEVER TASTED SO SWEET . . . Maggie Solomon has always been one of Windfall Island's favorite daughters. A beautiful, passionate charter pilot who loves this remote Maine island, Maggie has never cared much for outsiders-until her latest passenger arouses the curiosity of the town . . . and something hot and irresistible in Maggie. With his long, lean looks and razor-sharp wit, the man is temptation itself.  Cop-turned-PI Dexter Keegan is on a covert mission to solve the case that will make his career: uncovering the identity of the Stanhope heir, kidnapped nearly a century ago. No one on this fiercely protective island can know what he's doing, not even the spirited, blue-eyed beauty who infuriates-and excites-Dex. As the desire between them ignites, Maggie becomes the key to the case . . . and the target of an unknown enemy. Now Dex will do anything to protect the woman he's come to love-even risk his own life.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Anna Sullivan was born and raised in southeastern Michigan, the seventh of nine children, whose claim to fame was reading five books a week in grade school. Needless to say, her obsession with the written word only grew from there-despite a short, and misguided, foray into the world of computer science (the 'sensible' job path). She still lives in Michigan, with her husband, three children and two dogs whose life of leisure she envies but would never be able to pull off.

MY THOUGHTS ON THE BOOK:  I enjoyed reading this book. It has an good story with a wicked suspense element and I am looking forward to seeing just where it goes in the next book.  I wouldn't call this book a cliffhanger not all of the mystery is solved in this story. Maggie, the heroine is my only problem with this book is the heroine. She was  abrasive and I am not really sure how Dex managed to have ANY feelings for her.  Even though she was not one of my favorite characters that does not remove the fact that Dex and Maggie did have some pretty spectacular chemistry. I think I would have liked to see a little more tenderness and a little less spark.  I am looking forward to the next book which will be the story of Jessie and Hold.
