From the New York Times bestselling author of such beloved novels as Jemima J, The Beach House, and Another Piece of My Heart comes an enthralling and emotional story about how much we really understand the temptations that can threaten even the most idyllic of relationships....

Gabby and Elliott have been happily married for eighteen years. They have two teenaged daughters. They have built a life together. Forty-three year old Gabby is the last person to have an affair. She can't relate to the way her friends desperately try to cling to the beauty and allure of their younger years...And yet she too knows her youth is quickly slipping away. She could never imagine how good it would feel to have a handsome younger man show interest in her―until the night it happens. Matt makes Gabby feel sparkling, fascinating, alive―something she hasn't felt in years. What begins as a long-distance friendship soon develops into an emotional affair as Gabby discovers her limits and boundaries are not where she expects them to be. Intoxicated, she has no choice but to step ever deeper into the allure of attraction and attention, never foreseeing the life-changing consequences that lie ahead. If she makes one wrong move she could lose everything―and find out what really matters most.

A heartfelt and complex story, Tempting Fate will have readers gripped until they reach the very last page and have them thinking about the characters long after they put the book down.

About the Author:

JANE GREEN is the author of more than a dozen bestselling novels, including Another Piece of My Heart and Family Pictures. Originally from London, she now lives in Westport, Connecticut, with her husband, children, and a menagerie of animals.

From Booklist:

Popular chick-lit author Green (Family Pictures, 2013) tackles another hot issue for women in her new outing: temptation outside of marriage. Gabby Cartwright is a happily married mother of two who meets an attractive man a decade her junior while out for a night with her girlfriends. Gabby has an instantaneous and powerful connection with Matt, an entrepreneur with a successful website. Though nothing happens the first night they meet, Matt begins e-mailing Gabby, and she finds herself looking forward to his messages and responding in the middle of the night while her husband, Elliot, sleeps. Though Elliot is a devoted husband and loving father, Gabby hasn’t quite forgiven him for having a vasectomy and denying her the third child she’s been longing for. Given the book’s title, readers might have an inkling of what to expect when Elliot goes to a conference out of town, leaving Gabby on her own for the weekend, but Green takes things in interesting directions as she deftly explores the aftermath of Gabby’s rash, impulsive decision, making her latest a captivating cautionary tale. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: A substantial initial printing, author appearances, book-club call-ins, and many other media and online promotions will mobilize best-selling Green’s large, social-media-stoked fan base. --Kristine Huntley
