Helen Hardt is wrecking havoc on my sleep pattern. Her books are so very hard to put down. Dallas and Annie are amazing and you fall in love with them instantly. Annie is so very strong and has overcome a lot. I think we all knew something was wrong with Chelsea. In the end they come together and make a stand in the name of love.

I have been a fan of Helen’s for a while now & when I saw the chance to read some of her Temptation series books I was excited. The series doesn’t have to be read all together, and they can be read as standalones. She packs so much emotion and heart into her writing, I was very excited to see what she puts into Teasing Annie & Taking Catie. Although I skipped right to book #2, it wasn’t an issue not reading book 1 first. Both books were quick reads for me and tugged at my heart in so man ...more

Annie is a Jersey girl after my own heart. She is built tough and knows how to overcome pain in her life. She is not afraid to start over again if she needs too. And she is willing to take a chance with Dallas.
Dallas is trying to overcome the end of his marriage. And is not willing to make the same mistake twice. So much so that he almost loses Annie in the process. Thankfully he realized his mistake before it was too late.
Both Annie and Dallas have been married and are now divorced. Neither o

Annie moved to a small town to start her life over after leaving an abusive relationship. She wasn't ready to be involved with anyone until she laid on eyes on the handsome Dallas McCray.
She met Dusty McCray when she stopped into the vet office with her sick cat. She invited Annie to dinner with her & her husband. That's where she first seen Dallas.
Now she was smitten but would they stay together after her slip up about lying to her ex husband because the same thing happened to Dallas w

An Awesome Book!

I loved reading Teasing Annie(Temptation Saga Book 2), all about Annie DeSimone a thirty year old woman who is a Veterinarian and is new to town & Dallas McCray who is thirty-four a cowboy/rancher. They met at his brother Zach's house, because his wife Dusty brought the new vet home for supper. Her car had broken down and was in the shop, so Dusty drove her out to the ranch and said her husband would take her home after dinner. However after dinner he asked his brother Dallas

As always Helen Hardt doesn’t fail to impress! I loved this book - full of passion and unexpected turns!
Everyone loves a gentlemanly cowboy, and everyone loves Dallas McCray! Annie moves to Baskerville and sets up her own veterinary practice attracting business from the local ranches (and local single men!).
We learn the reasons for Annie moving to the area, we also learn more about the McCray’s as this is the second book in the Temptation Saga.
A brilliant quick read that will make you blush, so

Helen Hardt has another hit in her hands!! Thus series is amazing. Each one if the books here is about one person ( must if who we have met already) . The first I've was about Dusty and Zack McCray.
Thus one is about Annie and Dallas McCray. Annie is the new to the town veterinarian. She , just like Dusty, has a HUGE secret. Dallas in the other hand has a lot of hang ups from his marriage to Chelsea.
Will Annie and Dallas ever be able to forget the wrong doings done to them by the people they tho

A continuation in the Temptation series. Personally, Annie was a little better than Dusty. Dusty was an intro into the series. Annie was good yet still left me feeling it may have been rushed. There were chapters where the storyline was captivating but too the relationship kind of happened a tad to quick. A real outlook on Annie’s circumstances and wa# wondering, what was the outcome to Dallas’s ex, Chelsea?

Anne needed a new start, so she decided a small town in Colorado was just the place to start over. She sets up her vet practice and becomes a big hit. Dallas fresh off a divorce finds himself head over heals attracted to Anne. Dallas has no clue about Anne's past other than she to is divorced. When Anne's ex-husband shows up things turn bad fast. Once again Helen Hardy has delivered an exceptional story.

The second book of the Temptation series. Dusty and Zach are happily married and have a son named Sean. When their cat Nigel becomes ill, Dusty invites the new vet in town over for dinner. Sparks fly when the vet Annie meets Zach’s brother Dallas. Unfortunately both of them have a lot of “ex” baggage and even though they are smitten with each other, they’re both too stubborn to give it a chance. When Annie’s ex is released from prison, things go from bad to worse.

Fantastic read.

Brilliant read loved the storyline. Loved all the characters. Loved the twists and turns and adventure of there love story. Couple of spelling mistakes here and there that I picked up on that made me re-read a couple of lines. But fantastic story. I do love a cowboy love story!

One heck of a read

This book was awesome. As always Helen Hardt has done it again. I had a difficult time putting this book down. It transforms me into the characters world and makes it hard for me to leave even when the book is over. Loved this one and can’t wait to read the next in the series.

I hate to write a bad review. I loved this authors Steel Brothers books. This book just felt cheesy and predictable. It was not good. If We didn’t already own the whole set, I would stop reading. I am going to continue though only because the books have already been purchased. If you want to read a great series, check out the Steel Brothers by this author.

I enjoyed the Temptation Series because of the story. It is s love story of people following in love. But not to much romance where you have to skip pages. Each book gives details into the characters and then you read their love story and are able to see how it unfolds. I enjoyed the series. Reminded me of harlequin romance books just some stories a little rougher and tougher.

I have enjoyed reading these books in sequential order, and have to say that I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed Rafe and Angie’s story. She was a character you loved to be annoyed and sorry for at the same time. Could feel the sexual tension between them constantly. Great ending too ❤ Now onto Treasuring Amber. ...more

Adored Dallas and Annie

I loved their story! It was emotional and heartbreaking, but uplifting to see two people learn to trust after being hurt so badly by others. Great writing as always!!
Awww such a sweet book. Full of life.

I love Annalisa and Dallas so much, that when they ended up HEA, i couldnt resist smiling. This is a series that I am looking forward to read:)

Hey, if one McCray is good, the others should be as good aint it?😎

At first I was disappointed thar Annie and Dallas went to bed the first day they met. Thinking oh no not again. But both their pasts had different torment but the same fear- deception. A nice dangerous love story and the hate of others

Absolutely loved this series and the characters in each. Helen has a way of tying one story and its characters into the next. The books pick you up in the beginning and whisk you right through. Each story is as good as the next. Kudos to Helen! You are an amazing author!

I first started reading this book thinking it was just going to be another great love story. But then Helen threw in some really suspenseful scenes and I just couldn't wait to find out what happened next. I really enjoyed reading this book and can't wait to start the next book in this series.

Yet another series that has me on my toes and not wanting to go to sleep at night so that I can see what's next. The eldest brother Dallas has proven to be the hottest and most intriguing so far. Dallas and Annie have a spark they just can't explain. Can't wait to start on the Chads story!
