From the moment hardworking tycoon, Leo Guerra, lays down the law to fun-loving hotel heiress, Teddy Behr, they lock horns, the sparks fly and a roller coaster of emotions are unleashed.

Little does she know she will be forced to work in her own hotel under the dominion of a hot, no-nonsense boss who thinks the spoiled princess is due for a wake-up call!

Heart Tempter By: Sophia Knightly Reviewed by: Elizabeth/snoopypeach Teddy is a privileged hotel heiress used to the lavish life. She is summoned home and finds everything is different, and things for her have drastically changed. Leo is a hotel dynamite, every hotel her remodels seems golden. Tasked with Teddy after a devastating fiasco at another hotel, he decides the gloves are off and she needs a few lessons. When these two butt heads the sparks fly. This was a pleasure to read. I couldn't help but laugh out loud and wait to see what Teddy would do next. The tension between these two was electric! The story was flawlessly executed and the twists and turns kept me easily entertained. This is a great read for any romantic or if you just want a laugh out loud fun read. Received a copy for an honest review.

Just finished reading Heart Tempter by Sophia Knightly. Was a little skeptical when I read the blurb for the story. Ultimately, I fell in love with Teddy and Leo. Teddy is an heiress that has a tendency to leap before thinking through her actions. Leo is a man that thinks everything through and is out to prove his worth. Teddy and Leo's path crosses when she is summoned home due to bad choice she made and finds out Leo is currently running her father's hotel. When I was given an ARC of this story I was intrigued but skittish due to the suspense element. I was scared it would overpower the romantic story. Ms. Knightly proved me wrong. Heart Tempter was a balance of just the right amount of romance and intrigue. Loved it and would recommend this story to any reader.

Another great book by Sophia Knightly! This is the 5th book in the series and I have read everyone of them. I love the way Sophia brings the characters and settings to life in her writing. Teddy and Leo's story is another fine example.  He is the Spanish businessman with a preconceived impression of the spoiled little Daddy's girl and she is the jet setting party girl. But when called to help out her father's failing hotel, she doesn't hesitate to do whatever is necessary to make things turn around, including maid service. Leo finally realizes he's misjudged her but is it too late to savage their relationship?  Check it out. You'll  end up wanting to read the rest of the books in the series!

Although this is the fifth book in the Heartthrob Series, it is a standalone novel. I just want to let Sophia Knightly know that I loved Teddy and Leo's story, and I think it is my favorite so far. Teddy is beautiful and intelligent, and also the heir to her father's hotel, The Riviera. Leo is a rough around the edges Spaniard, a handsome hotel magnate that has been placed in charge of overseeing the grand re-opening of the luxurious hotel. He calls for Teddy to come home and has every intention of putting her through every job at the hotel, to show her that running the place is not fun and games. Leo is under the assumption that Teddy is a spoiled little brat, he is not prepared for the beautiful golden eyed leggy blond that shows up in his office, or the fire that she ignites in him, even while they hate one another. Much to Leo's surprise, Teddy does all the jobs he throws her way without complaining, but he realizes a little too late, that she gets nervous doing things she has never done, and this causes little mishaps. It is almost as if Teddy is an accident looking for a place to happen, but even these little embarrassing moments are not enough to keep Teddy from doing whatever it takes to help with the re-opening of the hotel. Combine the re-opening, a spiteful step-mother, demanding hotel guest, a tough Spaniard, and Teddy, and you have a book filled with suspense, humor, and romance. Be prepared to fall in love with not only Leo, but also with Teddy and just a little warning, you will not want to put this book down!!

Teddy's party girl ways have finally caught up with her. Her father has summoned her home from her world travels and also has cut her line of credit off along with her very empty bank account. Giving Teddy the benefit of the doubt that last and biggest tabloid nightmare wasn't her fault, but it had been at a party she hosted.  Leo called in his debt that Teddy owed him for the damage at one of his hotels by taking over the running of the Riviera Hotel and making Teddy work her debt off by doing jobs around the hotel. He wanted her to see what it felt like to actually work for a living instead of having everything handed to her. Teddy didn't mind hard work and she was willing to work off the debt for the damage that was done at Leo's hotel, but she didn't feel like she deserved his treatment based on preconceived notions that he already had about her.  If Leo was honest with himself he would admit that Teddy surprised him. She was up for almost anything and even though there was a lot she didn't know if she was given the time to learn she usually did the job well.  Leo and Teddy soon realize that their feelings for each other are running hot and what had started as an employee and employer relationship had moved on to a friendship that soon became love. I love this series by Sophia Knighlty and will definitely be looking for more books to read by her. I was given an honest ARC for an honest review. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.   Lori P

The fifth book in the Heartthrob Series which can be read as a stand alone. It's an enemies to lovers story.  I wasn't liking Leo right off the bat, but of course he did win me over. Teddy appears to the world a spoiled rich heiress, but people need to look deeper to see the true Teddy. Leo is definitely one of those people that needs to look deeper. I felt it was a little rushed at the end, but over all it was an enjoyable read.

Heart Tempter is the latest in the Heartthrob series by Sophia Knightly. Since this a standalone novel, you can read this without reading the other in the series. But I think after reading this, you will want to read more about these friends. Heart Tempter is set in steamy Miami. Teddy Behr is a hotel heiress forced home when she is part of a publicity nightmare. She comes home expecting to be welcomed like a princess. She discovers that her father has been ill and the hotel is in trouble. Leo Guerra has been hired to save the hotel. Leo thinks Teddy is a spoiled princess. Teddy thinks Leo is an arrogant control freak who is destroying her father’s hotel. When they met, sparks fly. Can these two get past their impression of each other and discover what really lies between the surface. Once you start reading Heart Tempter you will not stop.

Great Series! This is a great book; this is the fifth book in the Heartthrob Series by Sophia Knightly. These books can be read as a standalone, however, once you read one you will want to go back and read them all. This book is just as good as the other books in this series. I love Teddy and Leo and their story. Teddy appears to be a spoiled, rich, girl who always finds herself in trouble. She is called home to find out that her dad has stepped down in his position at the hotel he owns, and now the handsome Leo is in control. Leo is prepared to make the spoiled princess work hard to prove herself; the problem is that Leo finds himself falling for her. This book has it all romance, mystery and a wonderful story that kept me reading most of the night. If you have not read a book yet by this author, then you are missing out. I have read every one of her books and they are all fantastic. So do yourself a favor and read this book, you will not be disappointed.  A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.
