Note: I received an ARC generously from Netgalley, the author and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I should've been tempted to read and like this novel too..I mean look at the title.

*waits for everyone to catch up*

Yeah well, now you got it.

I mean look at the summary. A one night stand between two enemies (who have no idea they are enemies) which may turn to something else but before that happens, they find out the truth about each other and it becomes an all out-third world war

Power, temptation and scandal run rampant in Teagan and Jacob's world. How could they have known they'd be drawn into the center of it? Grady adds fuel to a backdrop that was built on drama. The Case for Temptation is a whirlwind. What was meant to be one night becomes an obsession that implodes the world around the two main characters. There's so much going on that sometimes I struggled to keep up, but I love a challenge and Robyn Grady always delivers on that front.

This is the first book I am reading by Robyn Grady. Before this I have read a novella by her on Harlequin Online Reads - The Medici's Pregnant Mistress. The Case for Temptation is Book One of About That Night... Series, the last one in the Hunter Siblings Saga (The Hunter Pact Series).

Jacob Stone is a lawyer who is in Los Angeles to attend the lavish wedding of an old friend. While there, he comes across a woman named Teagan, and within three hours of knowing each other, they have a one-night

The Case for Temptation is a little different to some of your other romance novels. It begins with our hero and heroine getting together for the night. As the book progresses they try to decide if they can fit into each other's lives, particularly when it comes to dealing with the baggage from each other's past.
There is a lot going on in this novel, with both Jacob and Teagan questioning if they want a relationship with one another and if they can make it as a couple. There are a few occasions

4 1/2 STARS!

One night turns into a forbidden love affair! THE CASE FOR TEMPTATION, part of the About That Night series by Robyn Grady was a really fun read. A chance meet up at a bar, a forbidden night of passion ... and just when they realize they feel a connection and want to pursue something more, the real world rears it's ugly head.

Teagan Hunter is a head-strong confident business owner who didn't want to rely on her family's glitz and reputation to make her way in life, so she struck off on

The story was a bit difficult to follow at first for me - I didn't realise that the book was part of a series - there's a lot going on!

After an amazing night together that ends on a sour note, Teagan Hunter & Jacob Stone find that they can't quite move on from each other. Family issues interfere over and over, but their connection seems to be even harder to sever.

Robyn Grady managed to hold my attention with this offering. The story showed that, once you believe in love & you're willing

I was not aware that The Case for Temptation was part of a series. Resolution to assassination attempts, mentions of previous kidnapping scares made for one confused reader! I did really like Teagan. At first I liked Jacob, then I didn't like Jacob and then I liked him again (just like our heroine!). I loved that part of the story took place in Australia. Visiting there is definitely on my bucket list. Overall, I did enjoy the story; I would just recommend reading the previous books. Thank you ...more

The Case For Temptation (About That Night..., Book 1)

There's a lot going on plot wise in this book (one night stand, assasination attempts, unplanned parenthood) which made it really confusing at times. It seems like the author just threw in a lot of stuff to keep it interesting. Overall its not bad book but I would have expected this to be book 2 or 3 in a series and not book 1.

I received this ARC copy in exchange for an honest review. I haven’t read a Harlequin story for quite some time. This storyline dealt with a couple of issues. The writer had all the necessary love story requirements; family dynamics, sibling relationships, chemistry, sexy hero, passionate heroine, and believable storyline. Well worth the read. Enjoy !

While this can be read as a standalone I think it is so much better if you have read the previous books first. I enjoyed this book it was well written and I really liked Teagan she is a good likable character I will admit I could not make my mind up about Jacob though he had some moments when I wanted to throttle him. I did enjoy this book though it was really good.

This was an interesting story where the main characters have to decide between family and work. They have to overcome obstacles that could hinder their growing romance.

I have been reading harlequin books for years and love the desire series. Jacob Stone is a lawyer who plans to sue Teagan’s brother but she doesn’t know this until after the one night stand. Teagan is determined to stand by her brothers side and refused to date or get involved further with Jacob. Jacob isn’t going to make it easier for her to say no.

Robyn received a book from her big sister and immediately fell in love with Cinderella. Sprinklings of magic, deepest wishes come true - she was hooked! Picture books with glass slippers later gave way to romance novels. When she was older, she wanted to write one.

However, in junior high, Robyn hit a stumbling block - a disheartening grade of one out of ten for a book review. Confused and hurt,
