Check out details on how to win a copy of this book at the end of this review.

In The Last Temptation, the heroine, Moriah Dru, who is called Dru throughout the book, is called upon to find Eileen Cameron and her daughter, Linley Whitney, who have vanished from their home in Palm Springs.

The investigation takes Dru from her home in Atlanta to the places the mother and daughter were last seen in and around Palm Springs. Immediately, Dru realizes nothing and no one is quite what it or they claim to be, from Dartagnan LeRoi, a police officer, hairdresser, the husband, a French chef and an Indian Princess.
Dru’s life is threatened by a snakebite, monsoon and a flash flood and she seems no closer to solving the mystery. She returns to Atlanta to find out more from the girl’s father, only to find out no one there is quite what they seem or appear to be either. All the turmoil takes a toll on her romance with her love, Lieutenant Lake. Lake disappears and Dru puts everything on hold, determined to find him. When the truth about everyone and everything start to come out, Dru and Lake face imminent death.
