I read the novella that started this world off in a Berkley Sensation anthology (Cravings) many years ago so when I saw Wilks had built on it and written an entire book I was all over it. And then I became a huge fangirl and I’ve read every single book in this series and eagerly await each new installment in this amazingly fresh and imaginative paranormal world.
So today’s book prize is Eileen Wilks’ Tempting Danger, the first book in the series
Lily Yu is a San Diego police detective investigating a series of grisly murders that appear to be the work of a werewolf. To hunt down the killer, she must infiltrate the clans. Only one man can help her–a were named Rule Turner, a prince of the lupi, whose charismatic presence disturbs Lily. Rule has his own reasons for helping the investigation–reasons he doesn’t want to share with Lily. Logic and honor demand she keep her distance, but the attraction between them is immediate and devastating-and beyond human reason. Now, in a race to fend off evil, Lily finds herself in uncharted territory, tested as never before, and at her back a man who she’s not sure she can trust ….
Rule Turner is such an awesome hero. I seriously have mad love for this character and how he treats Lily, who is no slouch herself in the badass department. Despite the paranormal aspect to the story, they’re a very “real” couple with real problems and struggles. I really love that.
And the world? Wow. Seriously amazing worldbuilding by Wilks here. I love that each new installment gives us more about not just the secretive world of the Lupi, but the other parts of this just beneath the surface world as well. Magic, mystery, so much awesome action. I love this book and I can’t wait to share it with one lucky reader chosen from the comments to this post. Good luck. Winner announced in the next Monday Winners Post.
