I loved Tony - he's a war hero with a lot of baggage, but has enough of his mind to know what he wants as soon as he returns home. I was rooting for him the entire time, on a mental (to get his issues resolved) as well as a relationship-wise level. Talia was a delight as well. I enjoyed reading the letters that they shared with each other while he was away at war, as well as Talia's cute personality. Her condition was a surprise; usually authors don't delve into such serious subject in a short romance novel. But Christopher does it with ease.
This is a quick read, spends very little time talking about Tony's brother and Skylar (which I was okay with actually), and begins to tee up future stories with some of Tony's cousins, and (the way I read this) the Talia's smart-mouthed, but loyal sister.
Great job, Ann. Don't keep us waiting long, we look forward to the next one!
Antonios Davies has returned from war a haunted man. His family thought he was dead but he was a prisoner for months until he escaped. Now he is back with his family trying to rebuild his life. The one thing that kept him going was the letters he received from Talia. Now he must seek her out to see if the feelings that were coming across in her letters were for real.
Artist Talia Adams fell in love with the letters from Tony Davies. But her fears of him getting hurt or killed made her break off the blossoming relationship. She is floored to find a well and formidable man on her doorstep. Talia is convinced that is he finds out the truth he will run just like the last man in her life.
But the soldier in Tony has his battle plan all worked out and sets to seduce Talia into his life. Tony's plan works all to well and Talia falls into his arms. Will he stay there once he learns Talia's secret?
Sinful Temptation is compelling. The opening of the books with letters between the two characters really got you to know them before they got to know each other. Their relationship wasn't an easy one and both had major life issues to work through but it was a moving experience watching them fall in love. Looking forward to the next book by Ann Christopher
Tony eventually returned home but experienced Post Traumatic Syndrome. The only thing that got him through his captivity and the aftermath was his thoughts of Talia. At first, Tony was going to abide by Talia's decision not to talk to him but he decided to give it one more try to see if she had feelings for him. Both Tony and Talia had a lot of baggage that they had to overcome before they could give each other their hearts. I really liked how Tony decided to go full force no holds barred when trying to get Talia to give him a chance for romance.
This was a very entertaining novels with lessons to be learned by all of the characters in the book, including the minor ones. I easily read this book in one sitting because I couldn't wait to read how the story ended. I give this story a Very Good rating.

After realizing that Ann Christopher doesn't have anything new out until September, my plan was to read Sandro's story now, and not read this one until probably May (trying to avoid withdrawal, LOL!), but after the big surprise in the first story (I won't say what), I had to read this one right away. And proceeded to read it in a couple of hours. While I'm glad I read it, what the heck am I supposed to do until September?
