Book Tour - Review and Giveaway - Temptation by Karen Ann Hopkins

Temptation ( Book One in the Temptation series )
Author: Karen Ann Hopkins
Genre: YA Contemporary Romance   
Release Date: June 26, 2012
Publisher: Harlequin Teen

Your heart misleads you.
That's what my friends and family say. 
But I love Noah. 
And he loves me. 
We met and fell in love in the sleepy farming community of Meadowview, while we rode our horses together through the grassy fields and in those moments in each other's arms. 

It should be 
ROSE & NOAH forever, easy. 
But it won't be. 
Because he's Amish.    And I'm not. 

Buy the book on Amazon 
** I received a e-copy of Temptation for review purposes from the tour host.

My thoughts:
I enjoy reading books about the Amish lifestyle. This is a sweet romance about two young people
( one who is Amish, and one who is not ).  The characters are strong and interesting, and I like the way that the "forbidden love" connection between Rose and Noah is written.
As Rose and her family settle into their new home in Meadowview, she meets Noah and is attracted to him right away. Neither Rose or Noah has had any previous romantic experiences and it was heartwarming to see how they handled their attraction for each other.
Rose is a very "independent" teenage girl with a temper and lots of passion for everything in her life, while Noah is quiet and devoted to his family and his faith, and since the story line is written from both Rose and Noah's point of view, you begin to understand what they are both going thru.
I liked their family members, and the community where they lived was very interesting.

As the story progresses, you begin to understand if their faith and love will keep their relationship together.... or tear them apart.

About the Author:

A native of New York State, Karen Ann Hopkins now lives with her family on a farm in northern Kentucky, where her neighbors in all directions are members of a strict Amish community. Her unique perspective became the inspiration for the story of star-crossed lovers Rose and Noah. When she’s not homeschooling her kids, giving riding lessons or tending to a menagerie of horses, goats, peacocks, chickens, ducks, rabbits, dogs and cats, she is dreaming up her next romantic novel
