Review: Tempting the Enemy

Detective Pale Rysen, an Alpha, is determined to secretly rebuild the Wolf packs from the ashes of genocide. When a killer starts picking off young females looking for sanctuary, it's his job to protect them. Forced to work with a hated enemy, he fears his cover will be blown. 

Jade-Scarlet's membership in the powerful Order of the Sibile has always been controversial. A half-wolf, Jade's unstable psychic powers are a disappointment to her mercenary handlers. So when the Oracle commands her to work with Pale, Jade must prove herself...even if it means challenging the enigmatic shifter. 

Yet Pale triggers more than her curiosity. He sends her into Heat, and the intense sexual attraction could mean losing control of her gifts-something she can't allow. As the number of victims rises, so does the danger. A murderous darkness wants them both dead. But even if they stop the killer, how long can they fight each other? 

Wow!  Want to talk about a book that grabs you by the throat and won't let go?  One where the characters are so realistic that they walk right off the page?  Where there are so many twists and turns in the plot that the villein is impossible to pinpoint?  Oh and one where the sexual tension keeps you on the edge of your seat?  Well, TEMPTING THE ENEMY is all that and more. 

Ms Tenorio has created a world that is very similar to ours with the additions of a few more races that are capable of interbreeding.  I find the Sibiles to be very interesting and I really wished that there was more in the story about them.  Hopefully there will be a next book that will feature that race.

I recommend TEMPTING THE ENEMY to any reader who enjoys paranormal romances.  I rate this book a 4.
