Half human, half daemon, Ryan Doyle is a driving force for justice. As an agent for the Preternatural Enforcement Coalition, he's investigating murders linked to a Los Angeles fringe group bent on exposing the shadow world to humanity. He is a master of self-control, keeping his deepest hungers hidden beneath a veneer of cool professionalism. Until he crosses paths with sinfully sweet Andy Tarrent,a gutsy reporter who makes him crave all the pleasures he's denied himself for centuries.
Tracking a band of conspiracy theorists eager to spill blood, Andy has uncovered the story of her career. Brooding, mysterious Ryan is an enigma-but their dance of seduction is hotter than any fantasy. As they race to stop mass murder on the streets, Andy knows that Ryan is holding back, keeping secrets.But getting close to Ryan means opening the door to a world that will challenge her deepest beliefs-including what it means to truly surrender to love.

My Thoughts

While I found this to be a well written, and interesting story, it started off quite slow. In fact I had the same complaint with the previous book in this series. Review here

The story takes quite some time to get going, and a less patient reader may put it aside, lamenting its lack of ability to grab your attention.

Perseverance paid off though as When Temptation Burns is actually a really great read. The characters are much more like-able, the story was more interesting and exciting, and I found it to be an easy and enjoyable book to read.

When Temptation Burns was a vast improvement from the previous book in this series, and gets a well deserved 4 Stars from me :]
