Surrender to Temptation by E.B. Walters  A playboy in hiding
A woman searching for answers
Will he let her in or send her packing?

After a tragic accident, Chef Chase Fitzgerald left his life in Los Angeles behind and moved to a ranch in Montana. He's convinced that all he needs to be happy are his horses, a few ranch hands and the Big Sky Country. Until one day, Nikki Savoy walks through his doors with her city clothes, sexy mouth, and a body designed to drive a man insane.

Nikki wants to know the truth about the accident that left her sister in a coma. Getting a job at Chase’s ranch is just the beginning. Throw in a crafty housekeeper, a cantankerous old cowboy, a few adorable horses, and an attraction that can’t be denied, and you have a recipe for disaster or romance. Will Nikki get her answers or will Chase offer her something better?


     Nikki wants to find out why Dee is said to have attacked her boss, Case Fitzgerald.  Also, why she would burn his restaurant down after he’d just promoted her.  She just could not wrap her head around it.  Here Dee was in a medically induced coma as they performed surgery after surgery as it allows her body to heal from the 40% burns of her body. 

     Nikki needed rest and answers so she was going to Montana before she got sick herself to get away from the hospital.  It would be a working vacation that her friend Amelia and parents didn’t know about.  She needs to go into enemy territory to get her answers on what happened that night at that restaurant even if it means Dee was the cause.  That meant meeting with Chase Fitzgerald.  The best way to do that was to be hired as the web designer he needed so badly for his ranch.  Took a lot of jumping through hoops but she was hired by his Uncle Mo the lawyer owner of the firm her friend Amelia works for.  Now she just needed to get Chase to accept her help.

     You see Chase was blinded in the fire and had to have surgery also and is recovering but slowly and painfully still.  No longer a restaurateur but a horseman, owner and breeder of race horses.  He needed help on getting his files on line and a website created for his business but his sight was causing delays.  All the help sent so far had been unqualified sexy women who had come to only get laid.  So, when Nikki showed up he thought it would be the same so he ordered her to be returned to the airport.

     Until she doesn’t back down to him, she becomes his match.  At first that is not what really unnerves him it is the fact that her voice reminds him of the fire and him being unable to find Deanna (Dee) in the flames.  (Dee being Nikki’s sister which he doesn’t know about).  But Nikki looks nothing like her sister and they don’t even have to same last name.  What was going on?  How could that be?  Why was this woman making everything in him react to her?  She had to go she was bringing out all these feelings in him and memories too.

     For unknown reasons he allows her to stay she’s glad, he’s not.  They start really enjoying each other’s company.  They establish this fun bantering that is so sexually charged it’s like a branding iron.  As they try to get to find out information about one another there are truths left out but one thing is clear they want each other.  Chase being who he is states the obvious asking straight out when will it happen?  Now she is really on edge.  For this and for lying as to why she is there in the first place.

     Is this a no win situation?  Will it all blow up in Nikki’s face?  Will Chase hate her for lying to him?  Will either of them ever find out the real truth of what really happened?

     I enjoyed the fast paced read.  Chase and Nikki have such a great chemistry that you can’t put the book down.  I loved Mrs. B. and Winston too.  E. B. Walters knows how to make the characters come to life.  There’s a mystery, a love story, and a family saga all rolled up into one book, can’t beat that.  Provided by
