Book Blog Tour of Tempt Me If You Can by Janet Chapman
When an anonymous letter stuns shipping magnate and confirmed bachelor Ben Sinclair with the news that he has a teenage son, he's determined to make good on the past. But Emma Sands doesn't trust him. The beautiful, fiery blonde has raised her nephew in the peaceful woods of Maine since he was five, and just because fifteen-year-old Michael is the spitting image of his tall, handsome father doesn't give Ben the right to march in and change their lives forever. Or so she thinks, until his return mysteriously unearths a dangerous small-town secret. With Michael's help, Ben will do whatever it takes to prove to fiercely independent Emma that he can be the fearless protector she never knew she wanted . . . . and the passionate lover that she always thought she could resist.
Janet Chapman's Tempt Me If You Can is a fun contemporary romance!
Ben Sinclair, the romantic lead, is likable from the start. Upon discovering that he has an illegitimate son, his first reaction is to investigate and then to acknowledge the son. He travels to Maine, treading carefully, and slowly reveals his identity - he takes care not to disrupt his son's life. Gorgeous, considerate, filthy rich, and a respected force in the business world, it's easy to fall in love with Ben Sinclair! Meanwhile, Emma Sands is equally endearing - she takes on her older sister's obligations and raises her nephew as her own. Emma is independent, intelligent, protective, beautiful and level headed. We are rooting for Emma and Ben from the very start!
As Emma, Ben, and Ben's young son Michael slowly get to know each other, they come across a dangerous secret. Their group approach to the problem draw you in to the action - and make this book a fun, romantic read! I very much enjoyed Tempt Me If You Can. It'll provide a nice, fun escape on a rainy evening or a day at the beach!
