Tempting Gabe
A skilled assassin. A desperate plea. A sizzling romance.

Heir to a wealthy oil tycoon, Gabe Hawke joined the Marines to advance his tech skills and use them to build a premier computer technology company. While out in the desert, he falls prey to a brazen theft. His early prototypes are gone. The thief remains at large. But that's not the end of the bewildering crime spree. Soon thereafter, his parents are prey to an attempted assassinated by an unknown assailant, leaving him as the sole protector of his sisters.

When Megan Maddox lost her mother, her world came to a grinding halt. Her brother became a virtual recluse, and the jewels left behind for her, remained in his possession. An attempt to retrieve those jewels and find some semblance of a connection between her and her distant brother exposes unbelievable evidence about her brother's true identity and the dangers he faces.

Desperate to keep her brother safe from harm, Megan turns to the one person who can help her, but when their worlds collide, it exposes yet another unbelievable surprise – one that challenges her heart.

While this story is a standalone novel that belongs to the Hawke Family Fortune, there are mentions of the Marshall Family Saga, the House of Morgan, and even Princes of Avce characters and storylines are all intertwined in the same world.

Fans of Danielle Steel, Jackie Collins, Bella Andre, and Nora Roberts will adore this series.

I enjoyed the story, but found it a little too short. It needed a little more built up to the romance. The action part did build suspense quite well. Give me more suspense in the romance portion of the story, please.

This is a wonderful suspenseful romantic story. How two people meet under unusual sircomstancesnand find each other. Even though this was a very short book I feel it still is a 5 ? read. Victoria has done a wonderful job with all the emotional ups and downs. joy943

Another great story Megan had been trying to get the one thing her mother left her when she died, Her brother Maddox had been promising to give it to her. He hadn't been the same since he came back from serving. Gabe was trying to find who targeted his parents and family. His mom & dad where in the hospital after being attacked. Now Megan has proof that her brother is behind it. Gabe & Maddox served together.

Haunting past with lurking danger for an ex-marine. Into his life comes a dame asking for his help to get her brother well. Her brother happened to be in the same squad as the very rich ex-marine. Get the short story for the rest of the story.

3 stars I purchased the short novella The Hawke Fortune Saga book 1: Tempting Gabe by Victoria Pinder and this review was given freely. A suspenseful novella with promise and a happy ending. Ex- Marine Gabe becomes connected to Megan when her sharpshooter brother tries to kill Gabe, his family, his prior military troop, and Megan.

Tempting Gabe is the first book in a new series by Victoria Pinder. This story has a good plot and interesting characters. The setting takes place over a few days and major events of the past play a large part in the foundation of this series. Yes, there is a HEA ending and yes, more details of these events will be forthcoming. While I have loved her books in the past, this one seemed to be below the standards I expected. I did enjoy Tempting Gabe and look forward to continuing the series. Although it is a short read and left me wanting more, it is a stand-alone book.

Megan discovers by chance that her brother Maddox can be the perpetrator of a terrible crime and decides to inform the only person who can help her. Gabe decides to protect Megan from his brother until the police arrest him. Although I did like the storyline, I found this book very similar to the House of Morgan ones. There is also a lack of deepness that makes the story weak. All in all, I liked the book. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book.

ARC for honest review with no compensation 3.5 stars Tempting Gabe is about Gabe Hawke, wealthy tycoon who built his company into a multi-million dollar computer tech company but while in the Marines overseas someone ambushed his crew and stole his USB filled with prototype security programs. Megan Maddox who is trying to get her brother help after he came back from the war and was apart of Gabe military group who was ambushed. It seems he blames Gabe for leaving him to die (not true) and is determined to take away people Gabe loves….. Instalove, suspense, and some twists and turns you don’t expect….
