In An Inescapable Temptation by Scarlet Wilson Francesca Cruz is running from her past. She cannot stop doubting herself and her past decisions. If she had been more attentive she could have saved her father’s life, but she blames a handsome doctor who turned her head for her inattentiveness. Even more she blames herself because he left her as soon as her father died and showed what he was truly made of then, something that she somehow overlooked while dating him. Now she has taken a job on a cruise while she gets her visa to work in Australia as a nurse practitioner.

AITGabriel Russo cannot stand the media anymore. They have invaded his family’s privacy his entire life. To run from them and the problems currently facing his family he decidesto take a job on a cruise, far enough away from Italy and everyone who immediately associates him with his family and does not his credentials.

When Francesca first meets Gabriel, he is unconscious after trying to rescue a teenager from drowning in the sea. He is a handsome man and she cannot help her very unprofessional thoughts, that is until she finds out his identity. She has been waiting six years to tell him off after her friend and roommate showed at 3:00 am soaking wet and crying after being thrown out of his penthouse.

Gabriel can see that Francesca is a very professional and knowledgeable nurse, but her sudden anger towards him is unexplainable, until she reveals the reason to be her friend Jill. Now Gabriel cannot help but admire her as a nurse, but he cannot help but wonder since she is friend with Jill, if she is also capable of using him and abusing any trust he places on her for money.

Francesca can see the professionalism that Gabriel has, and that he can keep calm in case of emergencies when other doctors have panicked in similar life and death situations. She cannot help but wonder if she was wrong in her immediate judgment of Gabriel and if she may not have all the information of what truly happened.

As they spend more and more time together helping passenger and crew alike and sharing close quarters, Gabriel and Francesca cannot help the attraction between them. But love will have to be stronger and trust definite.

If you want to read a sweet romance with a hero and heroine running away from their past but finding true love in the most unexpected place together, then you will like An Inescapable Temptation by Scarlet Wilson.
