Mistaken identity leads to love in TEMPT ME, the first book in the new steamy contemporary romance series THE MACINTYRE BROTHERS SERIES from USA Today Bestselling Author S. E. Lund:

I thought my life was all mapped out – marriage to my very ambitious fiancé, a career in business writing and a family.

Then I found my husband-to-be in the middle of more than just dictation with his nubile young 'sexretary' Bunni.

That's Bunni with an 'i' just so we're clear.

Brokenhearted, I swore off men in general and office romances in particular. I escaped to Manhattan with the plan of starting a new life on my own two feet, free of my cheating fiancé.

Despite an initial disastrous encounter with sexy bicycle courier Josh, I couldn't help but admire his buff body, sharp mind and sense of humor. On top of it, he was a real gentleman, offering to help me when my life crumbled around me.

Maybe a crass and meaningless relationship of sex, sex and more sex with his hunky and very buff cyclist body would be good enough. He might not be my own Mr. Big, but a fling with him would sure beat another session with B.O.B.

Then I discovered that the sexy bicycle courier who stole my heart was none other than Joshua Macintyre Jr., one of America's richest bachelors.

Not only that, he's also my boss.

Now, I'm afraid I'm going to break all my rules about office romances…


Five brothers. One hell of a last will and testament. Five couples find their happy ever after.

BOOK ONE: TEMPT ME is the story of Josh and Ella's beginning.

BOOK TWO: TEASE ME continues the story of their growing romance.

BOOK THREE: TAME ME follows the couple as they find their happy ever after.


  • Good content, horrible grammar

    By Binkleberry
    The book and storyline were great, but the grammatical errors were so glaring! Hopefully the others are more thoroughly proofread.
  • Didn’t want to put it down

    I am quickly becoming a fan of S. E. Lund. Too often, the female protagonist is supposed to be strong willed and independent. But is jaded, quick to anger, and many times just annoying (often, conflicts in this genre can be diffused with a 2 minute conversation). Ella was finding her way in life, trying to be independent, strong willed, but she was compassionate and didn’t jump to conclusions and run away at the first sign of trouble. Joshua was not the alpha male typically depicted in this genre. He wasn’t overly domineering or teetering on creepy (stalking, following, etc). I enjoyed S. E. Lund’s writing. Was it perfect? No. However, the story wasn’t filled with boring back and forth and the character’s conversations didn’t feel forced. There was a lot of internal conversation but that’s ok with me because it fit the story. Again, it didn’t feel forced. I gave this book five stars because I enjoyed the characters and storyline. I’m looking forward to continuing this series.
  • Excellent read!

    By Mikomush
    Really enjoyed this book, the erotic scenes were very well done, and the characters were developed very well. Would enjoy reading other books by this author.
  • Good read

    By BonitaRed1
    I liked the storyline. It was funny, romantic, and sexy. I could not give this book 5 stars because of spelling errors and inconsistencies with dates. Overall a good read though.
  • Meh

    By thismanmustbestopped
    I did manage to read the whole thing, but zero interest in what will happen in part two. I just don’t care about either of these people. The author tediously relies almost exclusively on inner monologue to develop the story and “conflict.” The conflict consists almost entirely of the facts that they just came out of bad relationships; she doesn’t want to have an affair with her boss; and he is either A) moping and texting to persuade her that a meaningless fling with the CEO is a good idea or B) groping her in the office.
  • Waste of time

    By tric23
    I don’t even know where I wold begin. The terminology was cringeworthy. It was just a disaster from start to finish.
  • Tease Me!

    By DannyGirl2146
    Not worth it! Misspelled or wrong word choices throughout the book so you have to figure out the word that’s suppose to be there. The characters seem immature for their ages. It’s stretched out to seem like it’s good and a lengthy story but it’s not! Don’t start this BC there is a part two and I wouldn’t suggest paying for it. I read about 10 books a week give or take and I know what good is And this is not! Sorry!
  • Needs a few more rounds of editing

    By Patty in McKinney
    Misspellings. Word omissions and/or disparate words in same sentence. Continuity issues. Poor grammar. Poor character development.

    I liked this book, but found it dull/boring in spots. It was very descriptive throughout which took up many many pages. The coming together of the main characters took awhile. It was choppy and left the reader hanging, which I personally, don’t care for. I would buy the next book if it was out. It being January 2019, and a little late. I did like the characters.
