Temptation is a companion novella to the best selling erotica book, Adam's Apple. The release day is set during the first week of December, 2013. More details, including a synopsis and exact release day, coming soon.
This novella is told in Kathryn Delcour's point of view. It will be an inside look into the woman that has set Adam Kingsley's life on a new course.

Here I am, a teacher of tantric sex who passionately teaches clients how to experience sex in the most blissful manner possible, and I've been stuck in a sexual dessert for two years.

Well now, that was a fun and sexy romp into Kathryn's head. This was pretty short, just a handful of chapters, but you really get to know Kathryn a bit better-this poor girl is starved for some intimacy.

Perhaps it's time to cave in to my mothe

Oh this hot lil number caught me surprised and left craving more. I was not sure quite what to expect from the supplied blurb. Wowzers this exceeded my expectations, the writing is more focused and sensually pleasing. After reading Temptation (Touch of Tantra #1.5), which I downloaded as an Amazon freebie btw, I must confess I had to insert my tongue and *SQUEEEEE* like a rabbid fan girl for Adam's Fall he's next yummy, mine all mine! I'm on it. Like NOW. This is one seriously addicting naughty ...more

I've been anxiously awaiting the arrival of this novella -- not just because I adored Adam's Apple. But because I wanted to read Kathryn's POV. As a 34 year old widow, she is a unique heroine in the genre -- a mature, sexually experienced woman, who could readily handle an alpha. We also get a peek at her tantra session and understand her loneliness. The chemistry when she does finally meet Adam downright crackles. Just a fab bit of reading/writing.

Cannot wait for Adam's Fall (01/06/2014) lots

Great intro

Great intro

Though this is a 1.5 book in the series I thought it did a great job recruiting readers to read Adams's Apple!

Excellent, I even read Adam's Apple right after. I love Kathrine and Adam. Anxiously awaiting part 2'

As the title says this just tempts you with the very start of the story and then you have to buy another two books to find out what happens.

Temptation (Touch of Tantra #1.5), by Liv Morris
5 out of 5 Stars
Heck Yes!! This is a great novella and normally I hate novellas! I reviewed Adam’s Fall (Touch of Tantra, #1) and so I was already loving Kathryn’s sexy, sassy, snarky attitude and I was intrigued by the concept of Tantra. (which as I said in my first review was a completely new thing for me upon reading the book) So when I shut Adam’s Fall and opened Temptation on my Nook I was incredibly pleased to see it was Kathryn’s story start

A Sophisticated, yet Sensual Look into the Mind of Kathryn Delcour

Temptation by Liv Morris is a short story that takes place before Adam's Apple, the first book in her Touch of Tantra series. Instead of Adam's perspective, we get a glance into the mind of the sophisticated, yet sensual Kathryn Delcour.

The author advised me to read Temptation after Adam's Apple and I'm glad she did. The book takes place the day Kathryn meets the infamous Adam Kingsley, but it covers the only the events that lead

This was a delightful short story to accompany the events in Adam's Apple. We see the few beginning hours of the book from Kathryn's point of view. I'm a fan of Liv Morris and her writing and this short story does not disappoint. It's short, but we get a significant amount more information on Tantra and its goals. As this is an important part of Adam's Apple and a key connection between Kathryn and Adam, this is a necessary companio

A great novella for the Touch of Tantra series from Kathryn's point of view.

This author definitely knows her way around describing the scenes you read. Trust me when I say this! I loved, loved, looooooved reading how Kathryn met Adam for the first time at her mothers fundraiser. Even though her mother wants to try and set Kathryn up with the big-shot NYC bachelor, she learns he may not be her type at all.

She was warned to stay away, but once she got a look at him, he was like a forbidden fruit
Love Africa Book Club
This book is acts like a little snippet into the mind of Kathryn Delcour, told in her point of view on the day she meets Adam. It starts with a very sensual massage scene which tickles your taste buds and gives the reader more knowledge of Tantra. We gets to experience firsthand her reaction to meeting the infamous playboy and her reaction to his chat up attempts. As this was read straight after book 1 I was a little disappointed that it didn't continue from the cliff-hanger at the end of book 1 ...more

I loved the Touch of Tantra series, which till now, I thought was just the two books! Have no idea how I missed this little novella, but really loved hearing from Katherine and what she was experiencing up to meeting Adam. This little revisit makes me want more of them!! This was a sizzling series, Liv! We ALL need a lot more Tantric Sex examples/ samples in our life, esp with all the BDSM glorifiers out there . Thank you fr this treat.
The Book Junkie Reads . . .
Informative. Educational. Instructional.

'Yoni massage' where can I find these lesson and get him signed up IMMEDIATELY!!!! This feel echoed through the entire read, even with it being short it carried on after the read was over.

Read this and you will find out just how naughty Kathryn has been.

I think I want to learn how to practice Tantric sex.

The candles, the oil, the breathing, the eye contact.

I read Adam's Apple ages ago and had forgotten how much I liked Adam. You only meet him at the end of this novella but you get a real feel for Kathryn.

It's a quick read that gives you a hint of what will come.

Temptation is a prequel to Liv Morris's Touch of Tantra series and happens just before the first book Adam's Apple. This tiny novella does exactly what it is designed to do, cranks the reader up and makes it literally impossible to not read the series to see what happens. Guess what I'm buy next?

I enjoyed those extra chapters. Those chapters were certainly an added benefit to the teachings of Tantra. It helped give the reader a better frame of mind for Kathryn upon meeting Adam. Those chapters lead the reader into the fundraiser night with her mother.

This companion novella gave us an interesting perspective of Kathryn's life leading up to her first meeting with Adam at the benefit. It allows the reader a better understanding of where her head was regarding her dead husband and what lead her to become a Tantra teacher.

LOVED IT! Getting Kathryn's perspective was so much fun. I loved her wild thoughts and the inside information as to how she knew of Adam Kingsley before meeting him. Thank you, Liv Morris this mini book brought many answers that weren't fulfilled in the 1st book. A must read in the series.
Feb 27, 2015 rated it it was ok
I am glad it was free. I felt like it was a waste of time. the entire thing is her point of view leading up to the moment she sees adam for the first time. I would have preferred knowing what was going on in her head from this moment forward.

After reading Adam's Apple, getting to see inside Kathryn's mind was an added treat. Not only was I correct about what a strong female protagonist she was in the AA but in Temptation we get to see even more of how powerful she is with Adam and everyone in general.

Not really a fan of these "half books". I don't think they are really necessary in a series.
