MS. Arthur produces another spellbinding read. Once you start Tempting Evil it's hard to put down. This is the third book in the Riley Jenson Guardian Novel series. These books need to be read in order, as it's basically one really long paranormal romantic suspense story. We have been lucky that MS. Arthur's publisher, Dell Publishing, has granted us a quick fix. Most of the books are coming out at one per month. The sixth book we will have to wait a bit longer on. There will be a lapse of 3 months between the 4th book, Dangerous Games, and the fifth book Embraced in Darkness.
Because this is book 3, I do not want to give too much away. This book picks up fast. Riley is training to become a Guardian for the Directorate of Other Races. The book progresses through Riley's foray into the Deshon Starr compound. Ms. Arthur finely reveals the person behind Riley problems. Who is the person that can take on the look and life of another? Who in Riley's life is not what they seem?
This was a great 3rd book and I'm sitting on pins and needles for the next. This is not your typical romance, boy meets girl and all is love and marriage. This is hard core suspense with horror and romance mixed in. Riley is not a monogamous woman and has many lovers. If you only like a linear romance this is not for you. If you love paranormal suspense, with a lot of variety this should be at the top of your list.
In a world of sorcery and seduction, the nights bring out the beautiful, the damned, and the desired. Here, Riley Jenson is on her own-half werewolf, half vampire, working for an organization created to police the supernatural races. Trusting her superiors and lovers barely more than she trusts her worst enemies, Riley plays by her own set of rules. Her latest mission: to enter the heavily guarded pleasure palace of a criminal named Deshon Starr-a madman-scientist who's been messing around in the gene pool for decades. With two sexy men-a cool, seductive vampire and an irresistibly hot wolf-vying for her attention, Riley must keep focused. Because saving the world from Deshon Starr will mean saving herself-from the trap that's closing in around her. . . .
