He spotted her in Club Nightshade, a beautiful goddess among the mortals, and from that moment on she was his everything. She tempted him. She intrigued him. He wanted her.

Sensual and darkly intense, Roman is every woman's fantasy come to life. One by one, Sabrina's reservations fall prey to his skilled seduction, leaving her dreaming of a future she never imagined.

Three Boundless Stars
A great story, I loved the idea of bringing fairies and vampires together. The characters were well developed and readers will easily relate to them. Tempted is the first of a series, but can easily be a read alone if readers stop at the epilogue.
As I said, I loved the story and the imagination of the author; but I found the book to be a bit over-written. The overuse of adjectives took away from the story, and made it a bit repetitive. The story could have been just a great with half the length. Less is more. I enjoyed Tempted, but felt it could have been better; I rate it with 3 Boundless Stars.
