“Someone needs to make you come completely undone, Sydney Parker.” His tongue moved slowly over his lips. “That someone is going to be me.”

Goal-oriented Sydney Parker has never had a problem focusing. She’s about to start law school, the first step on her way to the Supreme Court. With no time for relationships, she lives vicariously through her best friend Brynn, who has recently decided to use sex as a research tool. Sydney, however, hasn’t been laid in years. Men are a distraction, one Sydney has diligently avoided…until Jackson West crashes into her life, and under her hood.

The last thing Sydney needs is a hot mechanic working on her ‘69 Camaro. Especially a hot mechanic with eyes like the ocean and lick-me abs, who claims to be better in bed than a werewolf.

Jax thinks that’s exactly what Sydney needs.

But Sydney has goals, and a relationship with the enigmatic Jax would challenge her.

Distract her.

Tempt her.

Sydney is about to find out that temptation is very hard to resist.

*Due to mature content, this New Adult novel is recommended for readers over 18.

“Take them off, or I’ll tear them off.” #TemptingSydney

I scanned the shop like I’d been tactically trained to find washboard abs by the FBI. #TemptingSydney

He gave me a wolf-smile as he caught me. “Slippery, eh?”

Yeah. And that’s not all that was wet. #TemptingSydney

“Like doesn’t cover it. My ovaries tremble in his presence.”

What fiction most influenced your childhood, and what effect did those stories have on Tempting Sydney?

When I was young, my parents gave me a set of read-along books. My favorite was a book with hairy little guys who were trying to help destroy a ring. I loved following along with The Hobbit and hearing about Orcs, Elves, and Frodo and Sam. I fell in love with reading at that moment, and realized all of the things that I could experience through the mind of an author.

I loved reading so much that I spent far more time in the library than anywhere else. Story time was my favorite part of the school day, and I couldn’t get enough of books. I wanted more hobbits, more fairies, more places to escape to. I was seven when my elementary school librarian gave me a copy of The Fairy Rebel, by Lynne Reid Banks. I devoured it, and read it over and over again. I was obsessed with the rebellious little pink haired fairy and the thought that maybe, just maybe, fairies could be real.

Reading led me to think about what I wanted to be when I grew up. After consulting with my parents, I realized I was too tall to be a hobbit, and dragonslayers and fairies were tricky jobs to get, so I decided to create worlds of my own. I started writing when I was eight. At first, I wrote poetry, and then I started writing short stories. By the time I was a teenager, I had a file full of book ideas I escaped to every night with a pen and a notebook.

Whether the books are paranormal, contemporary, historical, or fantasy, I just love a good story. I love great characters, a plot that keeps me guessing, humor, and kissing…lots of kissing! They’re elements I look for in books I read, and elements I try to incorporate into all of the books I write. Tempting Sydney is my first NA novel and I love listening to my characters tell me what’s going to happen next. Brynn’s book is the next book in the Tempting Series, and I can’t wait to tell you her story! Just like when I was a teenager, writing is still an escape for me, only now I do it with a laptop instead of notebook and pen.
As a child, Angela Corbett’s most prized possession was a set of read-along books. She used to follow along with the narrator on the stereo and dream of when she would be able to read by herself. Her childhood reading habit led her to consider her future career. However, after consulting with her parents, she realized she had already exceeded hobbit height and since fairies and dragonslayers were tricky jobs to get, she decided she wanted to create worlds of her own. She started writing poetry in elementary school and worked as a journalist in high school and college, but could never leave her love for writing fiction behind.

She is a graduate of Westminster College where she double majored in communication and sociology. She has worked as a journalist, freelance writer, and director of communications and marketing. She loves classic cars, traveling, and escaping in a good book. She lives in Utah with her incredibly supportive husband and their five-pound Pomeranian, Pippin, whose following of fangirls could rival Justin Bieber's.

Eternal Starling is her debut novel and the first book in the Emblem of Eternity trilogy.
