Overview

For Kip Barrett, a secret commission from her boss’s boss’s boss, CEO Tamara Sterling, shows that the respect she’s earned for her integrity and intelligence as a fraud investigator is justified. All she has to do is what she’s done successfully before: Follow the cyber-trail, find the high-tech thief, and document it so that justice prevails.

This time, however, the embezzler is one of their own. Sterling Fraud Investigations has an unblemished reputation for ethical conduct and security. Kip must find out who and how, as soon as possible, and no one but Tamara can know what she’s doing.

As Kip gets closer to discovering the embezzler, her clandestine meetings with Tamara grow more frequent. It doesn’t help that her admiration for Sterling’s work is compounded by an undeniable physical chemistry. But SFI has an iron-clad no fraternization rule, and Sterling investigators never break the rules. She needs to wrap up her findings before anyone—including her emerging prime suspect Tamara Sterling—realizes Kip is not above temptation.

Follow the passion—and the money—from Seattle to Nassau in the latest page-turning story from Lambda Literary award-winning author Karin Kallmaker.

    Ignore the cover, read the book

    Karin Kallmaker enters the world of cyber business for her latest romance.

    After failing to qualify as a Secret Service agent, Kip Barrett went to work for Sterling Fraud Investigations where she specializes in tracking financial transactions. She's very good at her job, but she's still surprised when CEO Tamara Sterling gives her the special assignment to find out who is embezzling money from the company. Kip has complete access to all of the company's records, but she can't tell anyone else what she is doing and she is to trust no one, including Tam. That proves to be prudent because, as she tracks the culprit through paperwork and cyber information, she can't prove that Tam isn't the thief. Kip and Tam develop an attraction for each other, but there is a strict non-fraternization policy at the company and Kip refuses to compromise her integrity. If Tam turns out to be the thief, Kip is going to make sure she is prosecuted. As they dodge government investigators, rumors in financial newspapers and use false identities to sneak out of the country, Kip is determined to do her job first and worry about a relationship later. At the heart of the story is the issue of trust between the two women and the answer to the puzzle turns out to be the worst kind of betrayal possible.

    Kallmaker has written a nice tight suspense story with some action included. Though it's a romance, that's not what drives most of the action. Sometimes the reader can get a little lost in the discussion of the technology involved and the details of how information is gathered, but that's a minor point. This is the type of solid romance that Kallmaker's fans expect from her. The most curious question about the book is the cover. It really doesn't reflect the story at all and could mislead a reader about what to expect.

    Karin Kallmaker is referred to sometimes as the "queen" of lesbian romance. Above Temptation is an example of why she has earned the title, but it is proof that she can handle other aspects of a story also.
