Tempt Fortune

Tempt Fortune
Hebby Roman
July 2015

Desperate to escape an arranged marriage, Angelina Herrera flees from Cuba to Key West to start a new life and build her own business. But when her past catches up with her, she realizes the only way she can avoid the arranged marriage is to marry another … in name only.

Drawn to the fiercely independent beauty Angelina, Cuban revolutionary, Alejandro Estava marries her. Though outwardly he agrees to the platonic relationship because of his secret past, he cannot deny his powerful desire to possess her completely.

But tempestuous forces more powerful than the hurricane descending on their island home unleashes their mutual passion while threatening their yearning for a lifelong bond.

Between The Pages
A historical romance based in the setting of Key West. A good cast of characters that evolve in friendship, family, emotion, secrets, distrust, and love. I would have enjoyed the suspense to be more edge-of-your-seat, but the author throws in two romances in one story to level the pace of the read. Angelina and Alejandro are the main characters, but the romance between Destiny and Nathan is equally enjoyable. The plot and characters keep your attention throughout the whole story.

4 Stars
