And she's a darn good Madam, if she does say so herself. Her place is clean, her booze is cheap, and her bedrooms are fancy. But when a would-be patron won't take no for an answer, she's forced to fight for her life and run. And what better disguise than as a nun?Tom Slater is a taciturn cattleman at the tail end of a long, hard season on the trail. He plans to have a quiet winter at his old family homestead in Mexico. What he doesn't plan on is finding a foul-mouthed nun stranded in the middle of nowhere. She has sly green eyes and a way of looking at him that turns his head upside down. Tom doesn't need to be trailsman to know that this woman will only lead to trouble.

    Tess LeSue takes you on another epic journey in Bound for Temptation, the third book in the Frontiers of the Heart series. Emma Palmer is finally free and ready to start her life over now that she has sold her establishment and giving up the life as a madam. If only one of her patrons would get the hint and leave her alone. In order to leave town, she disguises herself as a nun and gets help from Tom Slater to guide her and some friends to Mexico. It may be a long way to freedom but at this poin Tess LeSue takes you on another epic journey in Bound for Temptation, the third book in the Frontiers of the Heart series. Emma Palmer is finally free and ready to start her life over now that she has sold her establishment and giving up the life as a madam. If only one of her patrons would get the hint and leave her alone. In order to leave town, she disguises herself as a nun and gets help from Tom Slater to guide her and some friends to Mexico. It may be a long way to freedom but at this point she’s willing to leave her formal life behind. Tom Slater can’t believe the mess he’s in with his friend using his name to get out of trouble and now has a posse on HIS tail. Heading to Mexico himself, he agrees to guide the nuns there. No sooner they’re off and trouble ensues. During these times and being out west, any travel would be hard and with trouble on their heels they had their work cut out for them. These two couldn’t catch a break. Things got so bad that Tom himself had to disguise himself as a woman to keep him alive! Neither Tom or Emma hadn’t expected is the attraction they would feel for one another during their journey. How can Tom be falling for a nun?! He battled internally to reconcile his feelings and keep them under control. Emma herself had inner turmoil with her past and how she wanted to be in charge of her own destiny from here on out. It wasn’t easy being a woman during this period and the author revealed so much through Emma how hard it could be. Your heart ached for Emma and her plight and cheered for her to get a happy ending for her and her friends.The author created wonderful characters and brought them to life in this story and took me on the journey as well. The plot was full of twists and dangerous developments that kept me glued to my seat as it leapt from the pages. I loved how we met the previous couples from the previous books and caught up on their latest developments. Tess LeSue has brought the west to life in her latest tale and any historical romance fan will love to read and cherish.

While LeSue did fictionalize the life and times of Gold Rush California, she also integrated some difficult realities of slavery, the treatment of Native Americans and women into the story without detracting from the heart of the tale of Emma and Tom. The issues helped to show the depth and strength of the characters.The storyline flows for the first part of the novel and I thought the tension between the characters played out believably. I found the pacing at the end of the novel a little off for me, but still enjoyed the conclusion to Emma and Tom’s romance. This is the third book in LeSue’s series about the Slater brothers, I have not read the prior novels and did not feel I missed anything. I look forward to reading more the LeSue’s books.I received this book to read from the publisher through the First to Read program in exchange for my honest review.

There is just so much girl power in this book, and I loved every minute of it. The characters are working through their own "flaws" and issues which gives them a depth that kept me thoroughly engaged. Let's not forget about the romance! I loved Tom's insecurity, even though I wanted to shake him at certain times. I hadn't read his brother's books, but now I definitely will. Especially knowing that Emma was in previous books.**Received access to the galley for free through the First to Read program from Penguin Random House in exchange for an honest review!**

    (I received an ARC of this book through Penguin Random House First to Read)I thoroughly enjoyed this historical western romance. Emma is a character I won't soon forget; plucky, funny, bold, vain, kindhearted, and quick-witted. Tom is equally memorable. The story is romantic, comedic, adventurous, and ultimately very satisfying. As soon as I finish this review, I am heading to over to add the other books in this series to my wishlist :-)(FYI: Some pretty steamy content at times)

    This was my first Western historical romance, and boy am I hooked. If (like me) you're into Regency historicals by authors like Julia Quinn, Tessa Dare, Sarah MacLean, Lisa Kleypas, and Lenora Bell, then Tess LeSue's writing is a very similar vibe to the style of those writers - just out West with pistols and cowboys instead of ballrooms and dukes.

Tess LeSue is definitely a new favorite author and one that's going on my auto-buy list; she's also not only opened the door to whole new subgenre of romance for me, I'd say she blew that door right off the hinges with a mining cart full of dynamite. Emma (formerly Seline) is a spitfire of a woman who can take care of herself - and anyone else that crosses her path that needs it to. I love that she's so positive despite everything that's happened in her life, and that she knows that while sometimes you have no control over what happens to you, you damn well have control over how you react to it. She's impetuous and runs off a little half-cocked sometimes, but I adore her "excellent plans" and the way her mind works, and how she just keeps her chin up even when the hits keep comin'. She's basically Poppy from the movie Trolls. (It's OK if you don't know who that is, haha.) Tom is a dark and brooding hero who is lonely and somewhat damaged, and I want to hug him and squeeze him and tell him it's gonna be OK. He's not in a good place when he meets Emma and the rest, but he is a good guy, and it shows. And while he is an incredibly giant jerkbutt, he realizes it much faster than some men and I forgive him easily. Also, he's kind of a big hot dork and it's adorable, as is the fact that he is the youngest of three swoony brothers, and has no idea how hot he is because his big brothers are just as swoony but know how to turn on the charisma and charm more than he does and he's a little taciturn. Oooh, I just wanna pinch his cheeks!The dynamic between Emma and Tom is anazing, and I love the jokes they make and their small teasing moments. I'm also a sucker for a mistaken identities trope, so the fact that Tom is hot for Emma even though he thinks she's a nun and then hating himself for it, and then she's sitting there going "Dammit, he thinks I'm a nun and I'm actually an ex-whore, what the hell do I do about this now?" just makes me giddy with glee. Yessss, suffer my children, suffferrrrrr and look at each other with hot, longing looks. Mwahaha! The tension is so thick you could cut it with a knife, and I love it. Aside from the sizzling attraction and the super slow burn, there are also a lot of deeper lessons here, like realizing that you can't change your past, the future is what you make of it, and sometimes you need to fight for your happy ending. This is the third book in the Frontiers of the Heart series, but can be read as a stand alone. I read this book first, and I think there are some spoilers for the first two books. From what I can tell, it sounds like Emma is a side character in the first two books as Seline (and that she's not a very likeable side character in the first book, haha). Each book focus on one of Tom's brothers and the first one, Bound for Eden, is Luke's book, and since Seline had a thing for Luke... Yeah. Anyway, you can absolutely read Bound for Temptation without reading the first two books in the series and completely be able to follow it just fine, but you may spoil yourself on some plot points for the first two books in the series. I'm still definitely going back to read them, but it might be a good idea to read them in order (just in case).

And when tempting feelings start to surface, it's only a matter of time until they consider running from each other instead...Thoughts: Well, I didn't enjoy this story as much as LeSue's second in the series, Bound for Sin. The premise started off all well and good, but the compilation of lies Emma tells Tom is certainly going to come back to bite her. And there was no need to keep up the pretense of being a nun with Tom -- Emma was already familiar with the Slater family, having developed what she thought were deep feelings for his brother Luke -- so she had to know she could trust him. I understand the need for the costume while they traveled (it is the wild west, after all) but she could have told him straight away that she wasn't a nun. For that matter. (view spoiler)[I also was annoyed by Emma naming the bakery in town "Seline's" considering she wants everyone to forget, or at least look past, her history as Seline the whorehouse madam. LeSue makes it a point at the end of the novel for Emma to constantly correct people when they call her "Seline", which was annoying as a reader because it's Emma's fault for naming the bakery by the exact name she wants everyone to avoid using when referring to her. (hide spoiler)]Bound for Temptation is an interesting story and has some very sweet, romantic scenes. I was left disappointed as a reader, though, because I wanted a bit more time with Emma and Tom as an actual couple.

    Bound for Temptation is the third novel in the Frontiers of the Heart series. In the previous two books we watched as each of Tom's two brothers fell in love while journeying across the country. Tom wasn't a character that we saw too much of since most of the previous books were centered around the grueling travels and the various obstacles that each couple had to overcome. Tom's story is no different. In fact, I feel like his story was the one with the biggest hurdle of all. You see, Tom is in Bound for Temptation is the third novel in the Frontiers of the Heart series. In the previous two books we watched as each of Tom's two brothers fell in love while journeying across the country. Tom wasn't a character that we saw too much of since most of the previous books were centered around the grueling travels and the various obstacles that each couple had to overcome. Tom's story is no different. In fact, I feel like his story was the one with the biggest hurdle of all. You see, Tom is in love with his brother's wife. Ever since his brother Luke brought her to their small town, he's had his sights set on her. Which is extremely awkward. So, Tom spends as much time as he can on the trail, running the business. Emma (formerly known as Seline) has probably the biggest hill to climb than anyone. She was the madam at the whorehouse that Tom's brother, Luke, frequented when he rolled through town. In fact, Emma fancied herself in love with Luke for a time. So, yeah... these two had some issues to work out. While we didn't know or see too much of Tom in the previous books, Emma (aka Seline) was seen a lot. Aside from her nightly meetings with Luke in the first book, she also accompanied Matt on his trek across country as a form of distraction. Matt's love interest was trying to shake a couple of sharks off her, so Seline and some of her girls accompanied the convoy to keep the men entertained and otherwise hold their attention elsewhere. So, Emma already had a tarnished reputation going into this. However, I was really interested in hearing her story, and boy did she not disappoint. Like the previous books, the woman is trying to outrun a man who's chasing her, and enlists the help of a passing Slater brother. In this case, Tom gets wrangled into helping a couple of nuns and a grieving senorita with her daughter across the country to a convent. Little does he know that the nuns are non-other than Seline (Madam to the local whorehouse), and a couple of her employees. Obviously, Tom is horrified by his growing attraction to Sister Emma. Which of course makes for an amusing read. I really liked that the hurdles these characters faced was a bit taboo. I mean a brother in love with his sister-in-law and a whore who thought she was in love with his brother? However, I felt like the author did a great job giving each of these characters a voice to be heard and understood. One thing I wish was a bit different would have to be the ending. It felt rather abrupt given all the build-up to it. I would have liked to have seen Emma living her life a little bit more and establishing herself in the community some before the story ended. However, I'm holding out hope that this won't be the last we see of Emma.

    Bound for Temptation by Tess LeSue is the 3rd book in her western historical romance Frontiers of the Heart series. We met our heroine, Emma Palmer (Seline), in the previous book, as she was a madam in her own brothel, and knew both Luke & Matt Slater (previous book heroes). When we meet Emma, she has sold her place, having saved enough money to travel to California and live a normal life. But first she has to escape one of the rich locals, who is determined to make Seline his. Tom Slater, t Bound for Temptation by Tess LeSue is the 3rd book in her western historical romance Frontiers of the Heart series. We met our heroine, Emma Palmer (Seline), in the previous book, as she was a madam in her own brothel, and knew both Luke & Matt Slater (previous book heroes). When we meet Emma, she has sold her place, having saved enough money to travel to California and live a normal life. But first she has to escape one of the rich locals, who is determined to make Seline his. Tom Slater, the 3rd Slater brother, is trying to clear his name, as his brother gave his name as a cover for the infamous ‘Deathrider’. When Emma makes arrangements with the real ‘deathrider’ having met him earlier, and Tom is assigned to bring Emma, her two friends and young girl on the trek, which could be dangerous, since she is running away from a dangerous man. When Tom meets Emma, the fun begins as the girls are dressed as nuns, to hide their appearance. In a short time, Tom is beside himself, as he begins to find himself attracted to the Nun (Emma). I really loved Emma, who is a strong, independent and a fun heroine, whom you could not help but root for her. From the start, she found herself attracted to the hunky Tom, but knew she needed to play the part of a nun, which was hard for her, as she continued to act her rambunctious sassy way; this also confused Tom how she spoke her mind. Emma always had a plan to get out of certain situations, which was pretty hilarious.The adventure was not only wild crazy, but a lot of humor along the way. When they meet dangerous criminals during their travels, the situation becomes tense, and they must find away to escape without revealing their true identities. When Tom gets injured, things will change as Emma has to help fix his injuries, and it was fun to see Tom appalled; but this led to the truth….she was not a Nun. Their relationship heated up, but not for long, as Tom discovers more truths about Emma’s past.Tom was a good hero, but to me Emma was the star of this book. I absolutely loved her. I also loved how when she lost Tom, she planned to find a way to win him back, but had to travel where the Slater Brothers lived, which did not sit well with the other Slater wives. Emma was a great cook and baker and used this to start her new life. Would Tom ever return to his home? Would he accept Emma’s past? You will need to read this book to find out.Bound forTemptation was a sweet fun historical western that was exciting adventure, romantic and humorous. I look forward to see what else Tess LeSue has in store for us. BarbThe Reading Cafe

Bound for Temptation is Tom and Seline/Emma's story.I love this historical romance. The life on the trail is hard. The banter between Tom and Emma is hilarious. There's action and suspense that will keep you hooked. The writing is fantastic. It's told in both Tom and Emma's POV. Reviewed on behalf of Once Upon an Alpha.

Lots of fun. Especially all the crazy ideas that Emma cooks up. Tom was cranky and reading the how he endured her torturous schemes was funny. Emma was a great character. I loved her in the previous book as well. She is definitely a sassy character. Received an ARC from First to Read.

When he sees Emma he knows that she is going to be trouble but, she may be just what he needs. I loved this amazing story. It had a great storyline and wonderful characters. Tom and Emma were two halves of a whole, who came together to make a great couple. I would definitely recommend this amazing story.

I did like that the story had its trademark craziness and drama all throughout.*ARC provided via First to Read*
