Release Blitz With Review: Moonlit Temptation

September 15, 2023


Moonlit Temptation by Penelope Black is now live! 

They say everything happens in threes.

Good luck and misfortune.

I got fired, inherited my late-grandmother's house, and moved across the country all in a weekend.

I thought I would get a reprieve, eager and excited to spend my summer with my cousin.

But no one warned me the rule of three could apply to men.

The charming playboy. 

The enigmatic stranger. 

The grumpy single dad.

Known collectively as the St. James men. And the most coveted bachelors in all of Rosewood. They run the Rosewood Reapers, an allegedly reformed motorcycle club. I find myself irresistibly drawn to all three of them in a way I can't ignore.

So I don't.

The only problem is, there are more secrets than people in this town. And I fear there's one that could shake our very foundation.

Of all the endings that I dreamt of in my head for this book, I did NOT see this one coming. They need to stop calling these things "cliffhangers" and let's just say what they really are: little deaths. This story completely took me by surprise and if you're brave enough, it's going to do the same thing to you.


Evangeline Carter has lost the only family member that truly loved and cared about her. Her beloved grandmother meant the world to her and even though it's been a year since her passing, the pain of losing her is just as fresh as it was a year ago. Moving to her Nana's hometown for the summer will hopefully be the reset that she needs for her life. But with a new sense of peace also comes complications and it's not one, not two, but three.


I love a good small town romance and seeing that this had a bit of a mystery to it, I was on board for everything. Eva was the kind of heroine that you wanted to have as a close friend and enemies were your enemies. I was under the impression that this was a standalone book so you can imagine my surprise when sh*t started getting real towards the end and gave me severe anxiety. I was a hot mess because I know this author couldn't have been that crazy to go there. There was no way she was going to put that into the universe. Guess what she did? Guess.She went there!!


Now despite all of that, this author told us to trust her so that is what I'm going to do. I'm going to trust that for book two I won't be unprepared and bring the good wine. I'm going to trust that she's not going to lead us down a rabbit hole and have me in a chair talking to a therapist every Thursday at 2pm. And I'm also going to trust that these characters will take care of my heart because if I have to go through another cliffhanger like that again, I'm going to find a way inside of that book!.

If you're looking for a "why choose" slow burn mystery romance, then I recommend you read this one.

Please note that this is not a standalone and it ends on a cliffhanger. Let me repeat myself some more. Do not read this book with a glass of wine. This is NOT a standalone. Drink from the bottle. You're welcome.
