I love the Jade Calhoun Series and I'm so happy to see new characters introduced in the last book. This book is about two of those new characters. Matisse and Vaughn. We find out how they met and how their relationship got to the point it did in book 5. The story is written from both characters point of view. So we get a clear understanding of each characters inner struggle and draw to each other. Another great story from Chase!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle:
--Actual rating 4.5 Skulls
Marked by Temptation was a great novella in the JADE CALHOUN world. It can easily be read as a standalone,especially since the characters are actually from different covens and groups than the main characters of the full length novels. The ending was an awesome 'ah ha' moment that is segueing Angels of Bourbon Street (#4) with Shadows of Bourbon Street (#5) though, and the introduction and meshing of the characters from the New Orleans coven and the Coven Point coven was awesome.
I loved Mati and Vaughn! Mati is a confident, powerful woman and she just so happens to be a sex witch and sister to the head angel of the Angel Council. She's on a classified mission for her sister, and in order to accomplish what she has to do, she must charge up. Enter Vaughn...
Vaughn is the ultimate alpha male. Sexy as sin, confident but not annoyingly cocky, successful, and protective. He's a bounty hunter working for his brother and the Witch Council, but when Mati and Vaughn's gazes connect across a crowded bar, all bets are off. Instant smoking chemistry and the scenes that ensue are H.O.T!
The sexiness of this novella shocked me a bit, I'll be honest. I was used to the more Urban Fantasy Romance feel of the previous Jade Calhoun novels, and this one was *really* sexy. It completely fit the characters, however, and was beautifully written.
I would highly recommend this to all JADE CALHOUN fans, the intrigue and twist was great after the ending of book #4, and I can't wait to see how Deanna ties everything in to book #5.
I also recommend it for any readers looking for a fun, sassy, sexy PNR novella.
