Overview

Adrian St. Claire, the sexy chef at the Pearl Island B&B is as tempting as the dishes he serves. In fact, he’s never had a woman tell him no––until his family needs help searching for a legendary heirloom on the sunken ship in the island’s cove. To find the treasure they need the help of a woman whose family history is as linked as theirs to the island’s romantic past.

As the owner of the Pirate’s Pleasure, Jackie Taylor is far more interested in running her cruise ship along the Texas coast than chasing tales of lost booty, and even less interested in tangling with a man who collects female admirers just by walking down the street. On top of that, helping the St. Claires could dredge up secrets she’d like to remain buried.

Enticed by Jackie’s resistance, Adrian soon has something more than treasure hunts and casual flirtation in mind . . . and he’s not a man who takes no for an answer. But will they each have the courage to risk their hearts for the greatest treasure of all––falling in love?

Editorial Reviews

Betty Cox
…sizzling, in and out of the kitchen. This is one terrific story full of enough adventure, humor, and passion to satisfy any reader.
Publishers Weekly
Readers…will eat up this final installment of Ortolon’s Pearl Island trilogy faster than a plate of Adrian’s brownies.
Amanda Killfore
The magic of the Texas coasts and pirate ships create a lush background for a special love story. Adrian is the kind of man that every woman wants to find, and if a less worthy gal than Jackie had won him, we’d all be ticked. However, she is his equal.
Suanne Coleburn
…this is one temping story of sexy romance, pirate lore and treasures of the heart in the past and the future. Julie Ortolon knows how to tempt you to take the plunge into reading this fabulous trilogy.

    A terrific ending to the Pearl Islands

    Julie Ortolon concludes the Pearl Island trilogy with a wonderful book, Don¿t Tempt Me. Adrian St. Clair is the chef at the families B & B on Pearl Island. His family has decided to search for a missing heirloom off their home. But he needs the help of Jack Kingsley great granddaughter, Jackie Taylor. Jackie has a letter that will help the St.Clairs wish to hunt for the heirloom. But Jackie has very personal reasons for avoiding the limelight that this treasure hunt will bring. Adrian is the type of man Jackie tries to avoid. With his devastating good looks, charming personality he is making her want for things she has never had. Jackie finally agrees to help but only if her and Adrian keep it friends only. That theory doesn¿t last long for either of them. Adrian latterly charms the clothes off Jackie and for once she decides to go with the flow. Neither is planning for the feelings that they have for each other. When Jackie¿s past comes back to haunt her, it takes all of Adrian¿s will and charm to get her to fight for them. Adrian and Jackie have such amazing chemistry and passion. They both have issues to deal with and its riveting watching them work thru them as a couple. You will love them all the more. This is my favorite book out of the trilogy. Adrian and Jackie just touched a special place in my heart.

    Awesome ending to the trilogy...

    Adrian St. Claire was the sexy chef at the Pearl Island B&B. he was also more sexy, luscious, and tempting than a whole box of Godiva chocolates! In fact, he had never had a woman tell him no, until he met Jackie. Adrian's family knew that B&B was haunted by the ghosts of their ancestor, lovely Marguerite Bouchard and her pirate captain, Jack Kingsley. In order to help the ghosts rest at last, they needed to search the cove for a legendary heirloom which was last seen going down with Jack's ship so long ago. To find the treasure, they needed the help of Jack's ancestor, Jackie, who possessed a certain letter that held the key to success. ........................... Jackie Taylor was the owner of the small ship Pirate's Pleasure. With the well known history of her deceased father conning most everybody in treasure hunting scams, she was barely able to get by. She learned long ago not to rely on anyone else and never to get her hopes up. Adrian was drop-dead gorgeous and Jackie was not immune to his good looks. However, she did know better than to even consider getting involved romantically with him and all his casual flirtations. And Jackie made it her personal business to deflate his too-healthy ego a bit. ....................... Enticed by Jackie's resistance, Adrian found himself coming back for more. Soon he wanted more than just harmless flirting and he was never a man who took no for an answer. ..................... ***** In the author's previous books ('Falling For You' and 'Lead Me On'), I witnessed Adrian's sisters fall in love, change the mansion into a wonderful B&B, and the family brainstorm on how to help Marguerite and Jack's ghosts find peace. Now it is Adrian's turn and I say, the author saved the best for last! ................. Adrian's ego was getting too big and Jackie was the stubborn spitfire to tame Adrian. This is the perfect ending to the trilogy and I very highly recommend it! *****

    The final book of Julie Ortolon¿s Pearl Island trilogy, like ooey-gooey fudge brownies, truly delivers.

    I love this last book of the Pearl Island trilogy! Loved the first two, and this is a great wrap-up. There's not only the love story of the 2 main characters, Jackie and Aidan, there's also the love story of Marguerite and Jack--the long-lost lovers whose souls can't rest until their business is finished here on earth. I love a story with a bit of real-life magic woven into it, and that's what Julie Ortolon gives us here. She effortlessly weaves lots of contradictions into her writing and stories: plain writing, real-life characters and situations, and yet there is a definite element of the fanciful here. Ortolon's stories are simultaneously light- hearted and deeply emotional. Her writing invites her readers into the story and makes us feel included in a warm circle of characters. The Texas Gulf Coast comes alive in all three of the Pearl Island books--the rhythm of the water and the sun, heat and humidity are almost like characters themselves. And an added perk in 'Don¿t Tempt Me' is the inclusion of Ortolon¿s recipe for chocolate brownies--the same ones that are the focal point of one of the book¿s steamiest scenes! Read this book, but read books 1 and 2 of the trilogy first. You'll be glad you read them in order.
