Midnight Temptation by Shari Nichols
(Ravens Hollow Coven)
What are the stakes for falling in love?
That’s the question tarot card reader Gillian Howe ponders when she hosts a supernatural speed dating event. Making the perfect match is her passion, too bad she can’t find one for herself. A chance encounter with a wealthy vampire provides her an opportunity to attend an exclusive after-party and prove she isn’t opposed to love. But she finds herself plunged into a secret society of trancing, blood bonds and human escort rings. The night ends in a police raid and of all the vampire detectives in Raven’s Hollow, Garrett Mulroney shows up at the scene. Even if he is scorching, hot, he accused her of a crime she didn’t commit and nearly ruined her life.
Fate has thrown them together again…
Garrett has been down this brutal road before and it didn’t end well. His sire tried to force him into a life of debauchery, but he chose to uphold the law instead. The fact that the one woman he can’t seem to get out of his mind or out of his lust-filled dreams is at the center of his investigation doesn’t bode well. It’s a good thing she hates his guts because it helps douse his growing desire for her and focus on the case. But when Gillian’s cousin is kidnapped into the Du Sang Brotherhood, she becomes the prime witness. Now they’re forced to put their differences aside and go undercover by pretending to be a couple. The more time Garrett spends with Gillian, the more he wants her in his life—and in his bed.
Knowing who to trust and who to love becomes a matter of survival, and possibly the only way to take down the Brotherhood.
What I thought
I received a copy of this book from the Author, in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
This is the second book in the Raven Hollow Coven series; however, this book can be read as a stand-alone. I have not read the first book yet but I cannot wait to pick it up. This is not my usual genre so I was not sure what I was going to think, so I am happy to say that I really enjoyed it. This is an enemies to lovers story, and it was so easy to read.
This book has wonderful female friendships and that is something that I am finding that I really enjoy in my stories. This coven is really a family and these girls watch out for each other. Gillian is a force to be reckoned with and did not have to be “saved” by the big strong Vampire. Okay, so I like strong female characters too! She might be a witch but she stood toe to toe with more than one vampire. I loved the fact that she was not a damsel in distress. Garrett was a complicated character there were times when I wanted to shake him but he was open enough to listen to people and see that he doesn’t always know what is best for everyone.
If any of this strikes your interest. You should really give this one a chance.
