Today's Free Friday's book, Temptation by bestselling writer Brenda Jackson, follows the unlikely romance between a private investigator and a big-hearted nurse.
Nurse Sheila Hopkins springs into action when an abandoned baby shows up in her hospital's maternity ward. First she works her magic to help calm the beautiful crying baby, and then she becomes a temporary foster parent until a more permanent solution can be found.
Little does Sheila know that this baby is part of a major controversy—a blackmailing scheme meant to embarrass a local big shot. Soon security expert/PI Zeke Travers comes to town, hoping to determine the baby's true identity.
But as Zeke digs deeper and spends more time with Shelia and the baby, his attention strays from the case at hand, to more personal concerns...
Temptation is an excellent introduction to Brenda Jackson - a celebrated author with over 70 books to her name!
Free Fridays Recommends
Each week, we ask our featured author to recommend a book or author that you may want to check out. Since authors are such passionate readers themselves, we thought you might like to find out what they love to read, too! Here’s what Brenda recommends:
The book I've read most often is Shanna by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss. It's shameful, as well as enlightening, just how many copies of this book I have in my house. I have it in every format and with every cover it has ever been issued. Shanna was my introduction to the world of romance novels, as the book has two strong primary characters - Ruark the hero and Shanna the heroine. Shanna is spoiled, willful and stubborn but she is the woman Ruark loves regardless of her faults, and during the course of the novel we see how his love transforms her into a heroine we grow to love, respect and admire. Ruark is a wonderful hero who loves his woman, no matter what. I read Shanna at least once a year to reaffirm my belief in the power of love. Because I write contemporary romances, it's nice to relax and read a historical novel that's so full of adventure, mystery and love, and to take an imaginary trip to the island of Los Camellos. Umm, a trip there sounds pretty good right about now.
