In the sequel to Tempting Faye - Book Two, now engaged, Faye and Alexei abandon their responsibilities, embarking on a two-month holiday to America. First stop, New York, to stay with Alexei's brother - Lucas, and his family in Little Italy. A tough call for Faye, as most of her future in-laws are unaware she is also blood related; a secret she hopes will never come to full light. No sooner do they arrive, when things go awry, incited by a 'fly' in the family ointment; a situation that threatens to jeopardise the Cappellini/Lockhart livelihood. After Alexei and Faye move on in their journey, Lucas - left to clean up the mess, starts getting ambitious ideas; encouraged by an old friend and Faye. He has also started developing immoral feelings and is forced to play a hand that goes against everything he stands for. Meanwhile, Alexei has taken a 'pounding' and everything precious to him begins to slip away. Once again, his and Faye's holiday plans become disrupted. She can't bear the thought of never seeing her paternal grandfather again, while, likewise, Alexei cannot abide the prospect of loosing his son. Realising time is their enemy, in their temporary departure - Faye walks into a minefield about to detonate. In the midst of his personal crises and revisiting his original passion, Lucas unlocks another fantasy. As for Alexei, he is potentially facing something far worse growing out of control. And unbeknown to them all, someone close to them has been indulging a fine, flighty romance with the last person they'd ever expect. As some of them put their desires at bay to put family first and fix their most important relationships, the stones unturned are left be for the moss to grow over. Feelings of lust and loathe that more than scratched the surface - buried deep. All they can hope to resurrect is 'hope', faith, and unity. To be strong as 'one family' for one man's adversity. Although expectations are looking grim, with 'one love' behind him, there just may be more than one light to see them all through any looming darkness. Someone, or force, has upped the ante, but with more at stake, there's more to fight for.show more
