Eve is getting everything she wants in life…more or less. Aside from her doting husband’s penchant for religious dogma, it couldn’t be more perfect. Or could it?

The black sheep of the family has returned for his brother’s wedding. Román is nothing like his older brother, Raul. He’s an irreverent womanizer with his eye on Eve. The only thing the two have in common is a mutual hatred.

When Raul is poisoned, his family will not suffer the suspected poisoner to live. Unfortunately, the suspect is Eve. It seems the only sane person in the family is Román, and the only way to save herself may be to accept a miracle…and him.

She’s an innocent caught between two brothers, but which one is the greater threat to her?

The Temptation of Eve is a thrill ride of a book. From the first page I was sucked in and couldn’t put it down. This author has penned an interesting, well-written story and I loved every word!

I found Roman to be enigmatic, even at the start of the story. I wanted to know more about him, and his mystery made him even more intriguing. From the beginning, though, there was something about Raul I didn’t like. I suppose it had to do with his attitude toward Eve and his continual quoting of Bible verses. This just got to be tedious after a while.

At first I wasn’t sure what to make of Eve. She seemed far to innocent, yet as the plot unfolded I found this to be part of her charm. I really enjoyed the twists and turns this book took as Ms Lyons wove her story. I recommend this great read, and look forward to seeing more from this talented author.
