Tempted received a great review today from Happily Ever After Reviews! I’m so thrilled that I had to share. I was just going to post an excerpt of the review, but it was all so lovely I didn’t want to, LOL. 🙂

Temptation is one of those books you don’t expect; to understand my reaction to it might be better placed if I start with some context. I began reading this book last week after learning my husband’s grandmother, whose health had faded dramatically over the last two years, had passed away.
I really enjoyed the quiet, thoughtful bits of solace I’ve stolen in Ms. Evans touching novel about a disgraced angel working his way back to salvation. We meet Seth, who became classified as a fallen angel when love steered his priorities from the Divine. He has since taken up with the Angels of Death as—for lack of a better word—a staffer who does the dirty work. Seth encounters the foul-mouthed, wounded Lyndi Garrison on one of his assignments, and intervenes against his better judgment to save her from a cruel fate.
I’ve read a good number of erotic paranormal romances that take on religious themes, and they tend to exceed my expectations every time. While Temptation is no exception, it felt like a different sort of paranormal from the get-go—intertwining both hotter-than-you-know-what sexual encounters with well rounded characters whose emotional connection, while rushed, never seems forced, making for a thrilling erotic read.
However, the erotic element—while truly spicy—wasn’t what I took away from the novel. For me, the underlying themes were sacrifice, courage, and recovery. If you’re looking for a read with evolved characters, depth, and let’s face it, seriously hot sex, this is the book for you.
