Overview

When Dillon Reed strolls into Janey Mayfield's candy shop, the past opens up like a forbidden door. The imposing ex-marine turned high school principal is a shocking reminder of an affair that shattered all their lives.

After the scandal that destroyed two marriages, Janey fled to Colorado with her daughter. Now, three years later, she's come back to South Carolina, determined to make a success of the business she inherited and keep control of her well-ordered life. But it's an uphill battle, what with her rebellious teenage daughter, a rash of break-ins plaguing the town, and an ex-husband with a grudge.

She tells herself she doesn't want the attraction she feels for Dillon. She doesn't want to be vulnerable to what his heated glance has put on offer: sweet, irresistible passion. But Janey discovers that the more determined she is to avoid temptation, the more it stands in her way.

A Fantastic Pager Turner. Two Dynamic Characters. A Touching story. Mixture of hearth felt pain & wonderous joy. This was the first Mary Lynn Baxter Book I've read and I loved so much that I went and bought couple more. I am sure I'll end up buying all of her books. Ms. Baxter you have done an excellent work.

In Hunter, South Carolina, former marine turn principal of Brookwood High School Dillon Reed thinks the world stopped when he sees Janey Mansfield again. Three years ago his now deceased wife had an affair with her then husband. Both marriages crumbled and Janey fled with her daughter to Colorado to escape the scandal. She has returned to take over the operating of her aunt¿s candy store.

Janey and Dillon are very attracted to one another. However, she has big problems with her teenage daughter and has no time to worry about a man, especially her daughter¿s principal who is the ex of the other party with her ex. Still, in spite of both their common senses shouting run, Janey and Dillon cannot stay away from one another. However, obstacles continue to keep them apart making any opportunity for a second chance at love slim.

The concept behind TEMPTING JANEY is as juicy as they get as two people burned by the indiscretions of their spouses begin to fall in love with one another. The lead couple is a charming duo who deserves happiness. However, Mary Lynn Baxter concentrates on the attraction between them more than the relationship thus hampering the plot. Still, contemporary romance fans will enjoy Ms. Baxter¿s tale even if most will ask ¿where¿s the beef¿ apart from Dillon.
