WELCOME TO TEMPTATION is vintage Crusie that goes down as smoothly as a fine wine. As always, the humor and insight into human nature make Ms. Crusies books downright irresistible. A former hardcover Top Pick.

The moment Sophie Dempsey and her sister, Amy, enter the town of Temptation, Ohio, Sophie knows there is bound to be trouble. Filmmakers Sophie and Amy are supposedly in town to help movie star Clea Whipple make an audition video for an upcoming project. The tiny detail Clea has failed to mention to Sophie is that the target of the audition video is porn producer Leo Kingsley.

Phin T. Tucker is the Mayor of Temptation. When council members want to pass an anti-porn ordinance, Phin knows the fat is about to hit the fire. However, when Phin and chief of police Wes get a glimpse of the Dempsey sisters, they are only too happy to put Cleas farm under surveillance.

Smoldering sex, jealousy and anger bubble in a cauldron of emotions that threatens to boil over. Who knew movie making could be so dangerous?
