REVIEW

"J.C. Wilder is one of the best writers of supernatural romances in the genre"

Vivian Carrington is one of the wealthiest and most powerful women in the world, but when her best friend dies she feels empty and rudderless. She travels the world trying to find herself and ends up in New Orleans doing research on voodoo for a friend. She spends a lot of her spare time at Chat Noir, a popular nightclub.

The owner of Chat Noir, Sinjin, is actually a vampire several hundred years old who is trying to recover from the death of his one true love. When Vivian and Sinjin meet sparks fly, but these two wary, heartbroken people are afraid to become intimately involved with each other. While they are dealing with these unwanted feelings, Sinjin comes into possession of a book that other vampires would kill for, and a hit man intends to make Vivian his next target.

J.C. Wilder is one of the best writers of supernatural romances in the genre and her latest work is quite a triumph. The romance between the two protagonists is fascinating to observe but it's how the two make peace with their pasts that makes TEMPTATION the author's best work to date. A fast-paced, multilayered plot and a rousing climax makes for a powerful reading experience.

SUMMARY

In her search for revenge, Maeve finds herself trapped in a world of magic and deception. With her twin sister dead, Maeve seeks justice for her murder. She's discovered the key that will guarantee her success—a magical spell to control a vampire. Now she needs to locate a witch of pure intent to teach the spell to her.

Quinn Montgomery wants nothing to do with his High Witch mother, Mortianna. Denounced at birth, Quinn was only summoned to her side upon the death of his half-sister. When he discovers the beautiful Maeve a prisoner in his mother's house, he refuses to allow his mother's plans to kill her and instead he rescues the prickly immortal from imminent death.

Maeve and Quinn reluctantly band together to battle the forces of darkness as they fight their growing attraction for each other.
