An Irresistible Temptation

Defiant Hearts Book 2


An Irresistible Temptation by Sydney Jane BailyRide a cable car through the lively 1880s San Francisco, but beware the dangers of its infamous Barbary Coast in An Irresistible Temptation.

Knocked down in dusty Spring City by a handsome cowboy!

Boston-born Sophie Malloy is running from heartbreak — and now she’s covered in dirt and sprawled at the feet of a man with a devastatingly sexy smile. Can’t a classical pianist catch a break? She hopes so, once she gets to bustling San Francisco on the sparkling bay.

This is the woman of his dreams!

Riley Dalcourt is stunned. At first sight, he knows Sophie is the woman for him, right down to her purple unmentionables. Unfortunately, he’s already engaged. His future and his career are crystal clear. So why can’t he stay away from the sweet-tempered beauty who enters his life so unexpectedly, nor forget her when she leaves just as quickly?

Sparks fly in the Golden City . . .

While chasing their dreams, Sophie and Riley meet again amid cable cars and concert halls. But their destinies are impossibly divided, and success for each means they’ll be pulled apart forever. Will one of them give up their cherished dream in order to be together? Is this true love worth fighting for or merely An Irresistible Temptation?
