**REVIEW** ~ The Temptress, C. J.Fallowfield

Contemporary Erotic Romance

Adult/18+ Read

The temptress


There’s just something about a French accent, something that conjures images of romance, sex and passion. There’s a reason French is called ‘the language of love.’

Lulu McQueen runs an exclusive honeytrap agency, to test the fidelity of rich men for their suspicious partners. While her business flourishes and her track record in the field remains unbroken, earning her the nickname of The Temptress, her personal life isn’t so successful.

A trip to Paris, years ago, led to the most erotic encounter of her life with Luc, a charismatic, dominant, irresistible Frenchman. For one night she experienced bliss on a scale she’d never encountered and fled in the morning, ashamed of herself, but her Parisian one night stand was burned into her memories and no one since had compared.

With no one available on short notice, Lulu steps in to lure Mrs. Le Grand’s rich husband, for an extortionately high fee. Lulu’s in for the shock of her life when she finds her mark at the hotel bar. Luc Le Grand still has a face and body to make Adonis weep. He exudes confidence, masculinity and raw sex appeal.

The question now isn’t whether Lulu can tempt him, but whether she can resist him, retain her reputation and secure her fee, or whether she’ll fall under Mr. Le Grand’s spell. Again.

My Review 

Powerful, Emotional and Darn Sexy! Five Stars *****

The Temptress is the first book that I have read by C.J. Fallowfield and it is one powerful and emotional read with some sizzling scenes! An erotic romance it contains one hot French Dom, a sassy heroine who is very much his match and an adversary I wanted to punch! It also has a fab cast of supporting characters and witty and sometimes laugh-out-loud dialogue.

The heroine Lulu makes her living in a most unusual way, heading up an entrapment agency, spying on and gathering evidence for partners who believe that their other half is straying. Once I got my head around the concept of the business and the moral dilemma it creates, I began to enjoy the often humorous scenes, combining state of the art surveillance equipment and disguises with good old fashioned feminine wiles and seduction techniques. It was a bit like James Bond meets Mata Hari! Lulu runs a tight ship and my respect for this beautiful yet vulnerable heroine grew as the novel progressed.

The scenes between the hero and the heroine are darn hot and I was frantically fanning myself after their first fateful encounter! Luc, the French Dom, really made this book for me. Like Lulu I just melted at the sound of his accent and I adored his romantic side and his determination to win his woman against the odds. Both Lulu and Luc have a number of issues to face after an absence of six years and not just the fact that Luc is now married. There are  many tear-jerker moments and a handkerchief is essential, although I must say that I particularly loved how they dealt with their adversary and the seemingly impossible situation they were in.

Recommended for fans of erotic romance who are after a read that is both sizzling and humorous!
