The Delight

Tempted is the story between Dage and Connlan’s, but it brings the story of Max is a brother, but no one of blood. Silent, but deadly, Max falls hard when he leasts expects it.


Max didn’t have a great life. Pulled from his miserable existence, he is adopted into the Kayrs family when Dage rescues him. He has a cold, dark heart until a little girl with the weight of the world becomes his to protect. Janie charms his cold heart, making him willing to do anything to protect his family.

Sarah is on the run after her stepbrother has her institutionalized when she claims she has seen monsters. A teacher at heart, she never really got into the family business, now she just wants to escape only to be found by a real vampire, Max. Attacked by Kurjans, she escapes, only to be found by Max again, claiming he killed four of them.

One night hiding togethe brings out the secrets each are holding. Sarah shares her gift while Max shares his past. The two fight the pull, but it will not be denied, but things can only be temporary. Or will it be temporary.

Max has always been the stotic vampire protecting a four year old, but Sarah open the hole wider to his emotions and he shows her the gentle side of himself. The one that needs love even if he has harden himself to survive without it. Sarah is a sweetheart, but she also has a steel spine that won’t let Max walk all over her or even her stepbrother.

This is a good addition to the Dark Protectors series, giving us insight into the characters we see on the sides, but never really get to know. I hope see more of these as I read through the series.

Great review!

…books with bulging abs on the cover always make me laugh. I don’t know why.
