His Secret Temptation was fun to read. Thier were a few love scenes that I skipped over. Simon Holcroft comes home from a business trip and fines a strange beautiful women asleep is his bed. He was feeling refreshed just looking at her. He realized it was his house cleaner that they have been exchanging funny notes with for the past 6 months. Caroline Sampsen did not mean to fall asleep but she had been up studing for her law class. She is one semester away from finishing but she owes money and till she pays can't finsh the final semester. Simon realizes that when while they were flirting he picked up her law book and the letter with amount due fell out. Thier is a knock on the door and his brothers fiance Francine and his old girl friend comes in and tells Simon that she is his christmas gift and starts taking off her clothes. Simon tries to tell her to leave and when she barges into the bedroom and finds Caroline she is upset. Simon introduces Caroline as his fiance that has not told his parents yet of. After Francine leaves Simon offers to pay what she owes on her law school and pay the last semester tution if she will come to his parents home in Savannah with him. The last time they fought over Francine the brothers did not speak for 3 years and his mom just finshed cancer treatments. Simon has his own company and doing really well. His parents have a big old mansion and money to go with it. So Simon buys her all new clothes and hair makeover buys her jewelery for the part. Caroline lost her mom to cancer right after she finshed high school and was the only family that she had. So Caroline agrees to go and have a family christmas. Turns out that all the family is hiding secrets till after Christmas. Caroline gets told all of them. She falls for Simon and his family even for his home town. I really liked Caroline & Simon. Seeing them grow closer and having a very merry Christmas. I look forward for reading more books from Cat in the future. I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley. 4/16/2012 PUB Carina Press

This book had a predictable premise but started out with a unique twist. The whole opening scene sets the theme for the entire book. I really wasn't sure what to expect other than a solid storyline. The characters were vivid as they developed. They should vulnerability and moral struggles throughout the story. There were a few too many characters for a contemporary romance in my opinion. The relationship between Simon and Caroline developed slow and steady. They sank into their romance and you weren't even sure when the change sneaks up on you. Once it starts, you can't help but root for them. Overall, this was a great romance story. The characters were flawed and the situations felt realistic. The only thing lacking in this awesome story is originality of the stories' concept. My rating: Four stars

...but I have to settle with just liking it. I adored Simon's family (save for Dane) and I feel they really made this story. Simon and Carolyn, however, were sometimes acting in unbelievabe and ridiculous ways. I will say one thing for the writing however: I felt they got to know one another "on stage", as it were and I was just as surprised as Carolyn that they'd only met a few days ago. Interestingly enough, I hope Dane gets his own story next.
