Faced with the closing of her family owned bar, Temptation, free spirited Cat Sheehan realizes that her life is about to change forever. Temptation has provided the Sheehan family with a livelihood for 21 years, but in the name of progress, the city wants to widen the highway. In order to do that, the building that houses Temptation must be torn down. When a last ditch effort to save the bar by having the building declared a historical landmark fails, the Sheehans have thirty days to vacate the premises.

Faced with such drastic changes in her professional life, Cat Sheehan decides to make changes in her personal life as well. She plans to give up her passion for bad boys and look for a nice quiet boy next door to settle down with. Just as her mind is made up in walks Dylan Spencer a bad boy if ever Cat saw one.

Dylan is part of the band thatís playing at Temptation for itís last few nights. When Cat learns from the help of his band mates that Dylan is basically homeless, she invites him to stay on at the bar to help her get things in order for the big move. Since there is some obvious chemistry going on whenever the two of them are together, she just might indulge in Her Last Temptation with a bad boy for old times sake.

Dylan isnít exactly what or who Cat thinks he is. Will their relationship survive when she finds out he has been less than truthful with her? Of course you will have to purchase your own copy of Her Last Temptation to discover the answers.

Itís hard to believe I am reviewing the very last Harlequin Temptation to be sold in North America. Her Last Temptation brings an end to the Last Call mini series this month as well as the end of an era as Temptation will be no more. Leslie Kelly has done a fantastic job of penning the final book in this line. Her Last Temptation has all the elements that made me love the line so much.

Dylan and Cat are a fun, smart, and sexy couple who draw the reader into their story. The secondary characters featured through out the Last Call mini series round out the story nicely, and the reader discovers a bit more about them in this last book. The sensual scenes are filled with passion and love and are hallmark to what the Temptation line was all about.

If you are a long time Temptation reader you will find lots of inside jokes and meanings concerning the 21 year Temptation line sprinkled throughout this book as well as the other three. Looking for them made for additional fun for this reader. Ms Kelly has penned perhaps her best Temptation to date and ended this fabulous line with style and grace and of course lots of passion and love. Pick up a copy of Her Last Temptation and share one last sexy passionate story and perhaps a tear or two with the talented Leslie Kelly.
