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. . .
In Melbourne's urban underworld, there's a nightclub for every fantasy and desire. But for Riley Jenson, one such club has become an obsession. Riley, a rare hybrid of vampire and werewolf, hasn't come in pursuit of pleasure but of an unknown killer who's been using the steamy nightspot as his hunting grounds.
Leave it to Riley to find the only ticket into the heavily guarded club: Jin, a deliciously hot-bodied bartender who might just provide the key to unmasking a killer unlike any other in the Directorate's experience. Taunted by a former colleague turned rogue, distracted by an ex-lover's attentions, Riley follows Jin into a realm of pleasure she could never have imagined. And as danger and passion ignite, a shocking mystery begins to unravel—one where Riley herself becomes the ultimate object of desire....
Loved reading these books! Riley has had a heck of a journey so far, and I'm only just reaching the halfway point in this series! So yeah, I want to see where she's going to go in the future books! I've really enjoyed reading about Riley!
Tempting Evil basically wraps up the plotlines of these first 3 books in this series, of Deshon Starr, the cloning and DNA changes! Though there's still some loose threads left to deal with, especially Gautier. And who knows, there might be some hidden threats still out there connected to this!
These two books, Riley is a Guardian, and she has been changing, but she has her line, and she hasn't crossed it, and I don't think she will. I think she'll be tested a lot, and the line might change slightly, but she won't go over it!
Quinn was an asshole once again in these books! We learned more about him in Dangerous Games, about his family, and what his other half was before he became a vampire. And yeah, that was interesting, but he also used his powers to get Riley to do what he wanted-namely, not go to the clubs, and leave and go home when they we facing danger. Yeah. That backfired on him!
Loved these books, and I can't wait to read more of this series!
