(The seventh book in the Aspen series)
A novel by

Small town, sexy romance by Amazon bestselling author Cindy Stark.
This book is #7 of the popular Aspen Series. Each takes place in the same small town. While characters do reappear in other books, it's not necessary to read them in order.


"Some of you may wonder why a motel owner is teaching an adult education auto mechanics class," Kade said. "Truth is, classic cars are a passion of mine. In fact, I'm happy to see Miss Parker here. I've had my eye on her '67 Mustang for a while now, and I'd love to get a peek beneath her hood."
Everyone in the class turned to her.
Heat coursed up Noelle's cheeks. It didn't help that he kept calling her by her formal name, either. "Please. My name is Noelle."
He met her gaze, giving her a warm smile that somehow declared victory while pulling her in at the same time. "Noelle."
Noelle Parker has spent far too much time searching for the right man, only to find the wrong ones. Taking a break from the dating game, she's decided the only steamy thing she needs in her life is the coffee shop she's built into a thriving business. She intends to avoid any man who has the potential to upset her plans, especially the attractive guy who could plow over her heart like he did the field of wildflowers next to her coffee shop.

Kade Collier doesn't need anyone to explain a broken heart to him. On the heels of a failed marriage, he's come to the small town of Aspen hoping to build not just a new motel, but a new life.

When Noelle catches Kade's eye during the auto maintenance class he's volunteered to teach, he can't resist flirting with her. Noelle wishes she could ignore the man with decadent eyes the color of her coffee, but he sneaks in under the guise of friendship. The two find themselves in a place they didn't expect to be, and it's up to them to put their past hurts behind them if they want a future together.

REVIEW OF TEMPTED (Aspen Series Book Seven)
I have really enjoyed the whole Aspen series. I got the boxed set on a whim and decided to read them on a cold dreary day...needless to say I ended up purchasing the other books in the series. I had not read anything by this writer before, but will look for her work in the future.
