His bed. His rules. His intense ability to make her come...completely undone.
Law student Gina Banks knows that getting in bed--literally--with billionaire Austin Long is just plain trouble. Sure, she's done some dangerous things in the past to fight the good fight, but taking risks is far different from testing her limits.
Being with Austin would involve both.
Still, the chance to help the families in her hometown is something she just can't turn down. So, she agrees to his terms.
Total surrender. Hers. To him. A simple business deal where they both get what they want.
The absolute last thing Gina expects is for Austin to end up wanting her to surrender her heart to him, too.
AUTHOR’S NOTE: C.M. Wick is my separate pen name for the dark romances in my catalog, as well as the extra dirty ones (and some are both dark & dirty). This is definitely one of the dirtier ones. Enjoy!

Tempted by Trouble is the love story between Gina Banks, a final year law student fighting to prevent an oil drilling company from entering her home community, and Austin Long, billionaire and CEO who wants to drill for oil in Skipjack Bay. When Gina crashes his party, Austin is instantly attracted to her and will do anything to have her. I recommend this book with its well developed characters and a plot with drama, plenty of sizzling chemistry, and a touch of BDSM.

Whaaaat The Hell!!!
I was feeling all kinds of things about this story. Parts of it I liked and took it strictly as a romance story but as a black woman some of it made be uncomfortable. The audience watching people engage in kinky sexual acts was unnecessary and more importantly Austin a white man flogging Gina a black woman didn't sit well with me. I don't speak for all black people but I guarantee you the majority will go where my mind went. Oh hell no that @$@$!? is to much like slavery beating. WHAAAT THE HELL. She allowed him to hit her with a flogger because he told her that she was beautiful and she was horny. After that I lost all desire to finish this book. There isn't a black woman I know that's going to allow any man do that to her just so she can get off. I'm disappointed. I finish this book but honestly it lost me after the frogging nonsense. I really thought that it was going to be my favorite in the series.
I have to say that I really enjoyed meeting Austin and Gina. Their chemistry is definitely magnetic. Their lives pull you in and will excite your senses.
Christa Wick has done it again. Can’t wait to see what’s next.
