July 24/25 is the "1st Adult Book Read" blogfest hosted by the Heroines with Hearts. All you have to do for this blogfest is fess up on the first adult book you picked up and read: whether a classic, a racy novel or that of unusual content. Then post your entry to your blog July 24th/25th.

The earliest “adult” book I can remember reading is Connie Mason’s Tempt the Devil. I was about 12 years old and the book was given to me by a cousin. By then, I had already developed a love for TCM and the old pirate movies they often played. This book is reminiscent of many of the Maureen O’Hara pirate movies and I fell in love with the book, reading it many times.
I still own a copy today, though it is no longer one of my favorites. I have discovered so many other wonderful stories over the years. This one will probably always have a place on my shelf for the sake of nostalgia.
Do you remember your first?
