About this ebook

When my job lands me in Dogwood Cove, I have no intention of pretending to be someone I’m not.  I especially didn’t intend to fall for a cautious, small-town bookstore owner who brings out a side of me I was convinced no longer existed.

We couldn’t be more opposite, but I can’t seem to stay away from her.

The problem is, if Paige knew the truth of who I was, how broken I really am, she’d run in the other direction. My emotional scars run deep, the chains of guilt weigh me down.

So when the truth comes to light, will I lose the love that has changed me forever?

Truth and Temptation is a heartwarming, swoony love story, perfect for readers who enjoy steamy small town romance with a heroine who has no idea what she’s missing in her love life, and a broken alpha hero determined to help her figure it out. Readers who want a dash of angst and a heavy dose of spice, with characters who help heal each other, and grow together as they fall in love with a guaranteed HEA. It is the fourth book in the Dogwood Cove series and can be read as a standalone, although the series is best enjoyed if read in order.

This series is for fans of Melanie Harlow, Adriana Locke, Claire Kingsley, Lucy Score, Laura Pavlov, Tia Louise, Jami Albright, Kandi Steiner and more.

This is book four in The Dogwood Cove Series and it is Wyatt and Paige's story and it is definitely a must read. Wyatt and Paige have the same career as Paige owns a small bookstore in her hometown of Dogwood Cove where as Wyatt is from a wealthy family who owns a big box bookstore. When tragedy strikes Wyatt's family he decides to go and stay in Dogwood Cove to regroup and sort out his life. When Paige and Wyatt meet there connection and chemistry between them is so strong that you can feel it sizzling of the pages but they both have there own problems but they are so perfect for each other and even with all the different backgrounds, issues and situations I still found myself hoping that they could get the happy ending that they both deserve but what happens when all the secrets are revealed and also the fact that they don't live near each other may cause everything to call apart. I absolutely love this book as the characters and storyline pulled you in right from the start and kept your attention throughout and I can't wait to read the next book in this series. I Voluntarily Reviewed a Copy of This Book.

Note: I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. It is great to go back to Dogwood Cove! I have to admit, I was skeptical about Paige's story when I saw that it was coming out. She seemed so quirky in the previous books. Paige is actually adorable. And her awkward and quirky self is quite endearing. Her speech patterns from the past books continue in this one too and we get so much more insight into her. There were a few parts that had me in tears. There were parts that were so well done that I just couldn't help but get lost in the moment. I could actually see the conversation happening in my head... Love when that happens! Wyatt was so swoony. The way he handled Paige (for most of the book) was really well written. Every girl who has ever felt like the odd duck needs a Wyatt in her life (for the most part, again, you'll see) Anyway, the wit and banter is amazing as always. It was nice to "catch up" with characters from prior books. And I can't wait to read more...

This is the fourth book in this fascinating series and is Wyatt and Paige’s story. Paige is the owner of a bookstore, and she is shy, innocent, and unique, and has led a sheltered life. Wyatt is struggling with family issues, and is the heir of a bookstore empire, and from the moment he arrives in town and meets Paige there is an instant connection between them. These two may be opposites but the complement each other by brig out the best off each other. This is a beautifully written story which has engaging and relatable characters, and is a sweet, and an emotional roller coaster, with loss, guilt, humor, witty banter, family, and love, which leads to a wonderful small-town romance. I look forward to reading more from this talented author whose work I highly recommend.
