Brenda Jackson's latest visit with the Steele family is a definite must-read-in-one-sitting! Sometimes comedic, sometimes dramatic and always sizzling with hot romance, Beyond Temptation (4.5) is a keeper. Morgan Steele has a plan to win his perfect woman. But real-estate agent Lena Spears says she's not interested because she experienced cruelty at the hands of her former love, who ridiculed her role as primary caregiver for her mother. To spend time with Lena, Morgan hires her to find him a new home that he has no intention of buying and selling one that he doesn't intend to part with. Morgan slowly overcomes Lena's reluctance, and his heart-stopping and very public marriage proposal brought this reader to tears.
