Shirley G. Martinabout this book: Fed up with an abusive boyfriend, Jennifer leaves her home in Pittsburgh and settles in Miami, where she obtains a position as a high school teacher. She vows that after this, she'll never again fall for any sweet-talking man that comes her way. But when she meets Varik at a party, she is immediately attracted to him, a man like no other she's ever met.
The attraction is mutual. After meeting Jennifer, Varik can't get her out of his mind. But what Jennifer doesn't know is that Varik is over one-thousand years old. Nor does she know that a friend of Varik's dared him to lure a mortal woman into his bed. Too soon, Varik realizes Jennifer isn't that kind of woman, and what he feels for her is not lust but love. Could she be the one woman he's waited for all these centuries, a woman meant only for him? But it can't be, he knows, for she is a mortal woman.
In the background lurks Celestia, a jealous vampiress who won't permit another woman to get close to "her man." Nor has Jennifer's abusive boyfriend, Brian, forgotten about her. Discovering that she lives in Miami, he goes after her. Varik saves Jennifer from her former boyfriend, but Celestia joins forces with Brian and kidnaps Jennifer.
But can Varik save her a second time? And once she finds out what he truly is, will her love for him remain?
"Temptation" is a story of conflict and hard choices,of love and jealousy, of good and evil. It's a story for our time.
