Once Faith Whitfield dreamed she'd find her prince, but enough frogs have dispelled that fairy tale. She's been too busy running Let Them Eat Cake and satisfying other people's sweet tooth to lament her own love life. Still, a woman's got to get out of the kitchen sometime and Ethan McMillan's seduction heats her passion to the boiling point. But even decadent weekends of ...more

The Sweetest Temptation is the Second and my favorite of the Whitfields Brides. I like it and it is worth my time to have read it.

I met this author at the Romance Writers Association Conference in SF in July. I went with my mom in order to see Nora Roberts and have her autograph a book. After meeting Nora, we walked around and looked specifically at the Black writers that were present (there were less than a dozen). I chose this author's book, which she signed.

The romance was nice, although I found the story format disconcerting. I cannot think of any other book I have read in my life that did not involve some sort of conf

The Damsel and the Prince

"The Sweetest Temptation" is the second installment in the "Whitfield Bride Series" and it's just an OKAY read. I enjoyed the attraction between Ethan and Faith, but it's a very slow-paced romance. It's so sluggish at times I was TEMPTED to skip ahead, in the hopes of finding some FIRE and HEAT. Once again, I enjoyed the camaraderie of the sisters during their social gatherings. However, this story is inundated with "insignificant" details regarding the cakes, the décor,

The Sweetest Temptation is the second in a trio of novels by Rochelle Alers, this one is about Faith Whitfield who is the owner of the a wedding cake shop. I liked the story but feel that she could have developed the story a little more. The substory never developed at all. Why was someone threatening Ethan's cousin?

I am big fan of Ms.Alers but this is not her best (Please read Stranger in My Arms, No Compromise, All My Tomorrows, Renegade, Careless Whispers, just to name a few).

I really tried to like this book. I tried to finish it but I couldn't. It's about a Black woman which I am. Who lives in New York City as do I and dates. Unfortunately those three things alone can not make a good book.
Perhaps I am to jaded, the story just plodded along as the characters fell in love. Halfway through I wished an assassin would come and kill off a minor character just to make it more interesting. Unfortunately I was not so lucky. It just went on and on.
I wish I could tell you thi

This book is my favorite out the series. I know from experience that dealing with trust issues can be hard for the other person in the relationship, but my guy is quite special........ I am glad he stuck by me these last two years.

It was good, not as good as the first one but still good. Really thought they were going to elaborate more on Ethan's career.

As always, Rochelle Alers has written a live story that captures the hearts of the readers. I thoroughly enjoyed Faith and Mac's story.

I loved this book, but.........

This was a very good story, but Laws have mercy, I wanted to just choke the ish out of Faith and Ethan a few times!!! This couple worked my last nerve, Faith was just a bit of a shrew at times, and how do you love someone and not trust them, I understand that you've been hurt before, but Damon, he's not them, now Ethan ,(sushi understand not wanting to divulge your financial status in the beginning, but after you've started fantasizing marriage and babies, it's abo

When you least expect it love will creep in your life. You wonder what it is but you really know, because you have been their before. What is worse is when you fight it and then you have to give in.
