Some women are bad. Some women are a bad idea. The best ones are both…

As a Black Ops assassin, “Lucky” Landon has had more than his fair share of close calls. Now he’s turned in his sniper rifle for the simple life of his small hometown. So the last thing he ever expected was to end up at gunpoint. Or that the woman holding the gun would be his best friend’s little sister and Lucky’s on-again/off-again lover.

Taylor Elliott is Trouble, and she likes it that way. And seeing Lucky again? Well, he’s been her dirty little secret for the past few years and everyone knows that secrets in a small town are almost impossible to keep. But Taylor has bigger problems on her plate. Like the local mob boss who wants her dead.

And right now the only thing standing between Trouble and disaster is a hottie named Lucky…



"For sizzling hot romance, Robin Covington is a must read." Carly Phillips, New York Times Bestselling Author

 "Lucky and Taylor have a past, and a red hot present, but do they have a future? This book is filled with action, heat and small-town charm. Lucky and Taylor's shared past adds a sweet touch that will melt your heart as it heats you up." ~ RT Book Reviews, 4.5 stars

"Lucky and Taylor are fun and amazing characters. The book was hot, well written and definitely kept me reading until the wee hours of the morning. Looking forward to the next book in the series!" ~ Bestselling author, Robin Kaye

"His Southern Temptation manages to be a sweet romance with liberal hot, steamy sex in multiple locations and a good measure of suspense. You will absolutely fall in love with these characters. . .   This is a story that will resonate with any modern woman that has questioned whether she can really have it all. You will enjoy Taylor as a strong, feisty heroine that isn't afraid of her sexuality and Lucky as a strong hero that risks everything to make himself vulnerable to have the love he's always wanted." ~ Cocktails and Books, 5 stars

"Whew, is it HOT in here or what?!?! His Southern Temptation was AH-MAZ-ING!

I was lucky enough to read an ARC of this book and it has all the sexy sizzle of the first in the series! If you're looking for intrigue, well-drawn sexual tension and smokin' hot bedroom scenes that make that tension worthwhile, you're in the right place with this book. Loved Lucky and Taylor! ...more

By Jessica's May 04, 2017

I really liked Lucky, Taylor was okay but she drove me crazy the way she hurt Lucky. She made him feel like he was nothing special just a booty call. I also didn't like how she let fear rule her and pushed Lucky away a lot. I do understand her fear, especially with what her mom was going through, bu ...more

From the first sentence to the last page I couldn't put this book down. If it's even possible Robin Covington outdid herself.

When I turned the last page of this book, the thought that ran through my head was " What a beautiful love story". There's very hot sex, heartbreak, danger , and anger. But the love between these two damaged people pulled me in.

An honest review due to being given an ARC from the publisher. Okay so honestly it was just not my cup of tea. And I don't even blame the writer's skills or abilities for this it's not something that I should have picked up for myself to read which is something I found out halfway through out the no ...more

His Southern Temptation is a fun read, but what really makes it special is Robin Covington's superb writing. She puts you right into the first scene, where you happily stay until you get to "The End" and start pining for the next book. Her Boys are Back series is on my auto-buy list, and should be o ...more

Read this as an ebook, which took some getting used to (I just prefer “dead tree” books). But it was worth it - loved the setting, the emotional roller coaster, and the background suspense plot line. Looking forward to the next installment. ...more
