Overview


Detective Pale Rysen, an Alpha, is determined to secretly rebuild the Wolf packs from the ashes of genocide. When a killer starts picking off young females looking for sanctuary, it's his job to protect them. Forced to work with a hated enemy, he fears his cover will be blown.

Jade-Scarlet's membership in the powerful Order of the Sibile has always been controversial. A half-wolf, Jade's unstable psychic powers are a disappointment to her mercenary handlers. So when the Oracle commands her to work with Pale, Jade must prove herself...even if it means challenging the enigmatic shifter.

Yet Pale triggers more than her curiosity. He sends her into Heat, and the intense sexual attraction could mean losing control of her gifts—something she can't allow. As the number of victims rises, so does the danger. A murderous darkness wants them both dead. But even if they stop the killer, how long can they fight each other?

Meet the Author

Dee Tenorio has a few reality issues. After much therapy for the problem—if one can call being awakened in the night by visions of hot able-bodied men a problem—she has proved incurable. It turns out she enjoys tormenting herself by writing sizzling, steamy romances of various genres spanning paranormal mystery dramas, contemporaries and romantic comedies. Preferably starring the sexy, somewhat grumpy heroes described above and smart-mouthed heroines who have much better hair than she does.



The best part is, no more therapy bills!



Well, not for Dee, anyway. Her husband and kids, on the other hand…

Read an Excerpt

Shae trudged through the snowdrifts, her feet sinking nearly to the knee with each step. Cold seeped into her bones, but she didn't dare stop. Holding the bundle high against her chest, she pushed harder. It wasn't far now. Another mile through the trees. Maybe less.

If only she knew what chased her. It had been following, though she couldn't say how closely, since she left the road. That she knew of. It could have been following since the last checkpoint, even, and only revealed itself now. Sparing another fearful glance over her shoulder, she looked past the mist of her own breath on the night air for some sign of the person, maybe even the thing, that had come with her into the forest.

Nothing.

But she sensed it… Just because she couldn't smell it or see it in the shadows of the black trees or hear it crunching through the white snow didn't mean it wasn't there. She could feel it. It was nothing good.

She gave a shriek as her foot suddenly dropped deeper into the snow, throwing her off-balance onto her hands. The bundle at her chest wriggled desperately. Gasping, she gathered it close, peeling back the blanket layers to check the baby's face for signs of pain.

Once again, she wondered if this was the right move to make, but the second-guess was gone almost before it formed. The baby would have a better chance this way. Freedom was the only gift she could give to her.

Thankfully, the sleeping infant was more startled than hurt. She settled again when Shae made shushing noises. It took time, precious time, but she got the baby back to sleep, tightening the straps that bundled it to her chest before finding her footing again.

She made it five more steps before the first sound scared her nearly out of her skin. An angry hissing roar that echoed in her ears long seconds after it passed. If she didn't know better, she'd swear the sound had circled her, inches from her face. She had only time to gasp, her throat preparing to scream, and it was gone.

Panting, adrenaline rushing like an overflowing river through her veins, Shae did the only thing she could think of. She ran.

Arms tight around the baby, she skidded, crunched and sloshed through the snow, barely finding solid ground before she rushed to the next step.

Too much noise.

She wanted to obey the Instinct, but fear ruled her. This hunter was no pack of lustful wolves. Not even a death squad determined to end her. She didn't know what this was, but it was toying with her. She lurched backward at another hissing threat from between two trees, already changing direction.

South. Head south.

Half a mile. That was all. But Shae could feel the truth in her soul as the terrifying noise struck her spine, the sensation more frigid than the snow, nearly overturning her again. She wouldn't reach the last stop on the Underground, wouldn't have the chance to plead with the new Alpha she'd heard about. The one rebuilding the packs. To have come so far, escaped being caught over and over again because the dream of safety—a future for her child—kept her going despite the dragging hunger and exhaustion, only to know she'd never had a chance to get there tore the few remaining pieces of her soul.

    Rich, deep were-chocolate!

    Won this in a contest and stayed up way too late finishing it!

    It's rich. The characters have depth, agendas, conflicts between their allegances and their growing pull towards each other.

    No cardboard here.

    A great start to a hopefully great Shifter Series

    Detective Pale Rysen, is an Alpha,he is determined to secretly rebuild the Wolf packs from the ashes of genocide. When a killer starts picking off young females that are looking for sanctuary, it's Pale Rysen's job to protect them. Rysen is forced to work with a hated enemy, he fears his cover will be blown.
    Jade-Scarlet's membership in the powerful Order of the Sibile has always been controversial. Jade is half wolf and has unstable psychic powers that are a disappointment to her mercenary handlers. So when the Oracle commands her to work with Pale, Jade has a chance to prove herself and prove herself she must!...even if it means challenging the enigmatic shifter who is Pale Rysen.
    However Pale triggers more than Jade's curiosity. He sends her into Heat, and the intense sexual attraction could mean losing control of her gifts-something Jade cannot allow. As the number of victims rises, so does the danger. A murderous darkness wants them both dead. But even if they stop the killer, how long can they fight against each other?


    For some reason I had in my head that this series of books by Dee were actually YA and I got a little surprised at the first er.."steamy" descriptions, but have to say this book is really very good. The steamy sections are not overly done or out of place, I would say they are tastefully steamy. I love the characters of Pale and Jade-Scarlett. They initially have a strong mutual distrust of each other yet are also strongly attracted to one another. I love that Jade-Scarlett is a strong female character who stands her ground and is willing to face whatever and whomever she must to complete her assignment
    This is a great start to what seems to me to be another great shifter series comparable to the Rachel Vincent series "Shifters" and also I found Dee's writing as captivating as Kelley Armstrong's "Women of the Otherworld" Series. I would certainly recommend this book and am seriously looking forward to reading book 2 in the series which is called Deceiving the Protector. A definite "I recommend to read" I also have to add I love the cover, I presume it is a picture of Jade-Scarlett. Her eyes draw you into wanting to know more about her too, and of course wanting to read the book. I think a cover is the first thing that catches your attention with a book.

    a fantastic book !

    i won this book in a contest and i was asked to give a review if i felt like i wanted to. i truly enjoyed the book the hero and heroine were both intriguing and complex and pulled me right into the story.
    i also enjoyed the fact that even with Pale being an alpha he could not intimidate Jade and she gave as good as she got.
    the plot was also very good as it was not one of those that you had figured out 5 minutes into the book but it kept me guessing right up to the last pages.
    i would highly recommend this book to anyone that likes a paranormal genre or even someone looking for something different from their everday reads. they won't be disappointed.

    Tempting the Enemy

    Detective Pale Rysin is a werewolf, the leader of his pack. Jade-Scarlett is a member of the powerful order of the Sibile (women with strange magical powers), but she is also half-wolf. When she is sent to help Detective Rysin investigate the murders of several young women, sparks fly...in more than one way.

    There is an instant attraction between the two, but their worlds have been taught to hate each other for years. Will they be able to overcome their prejudices and work together to solve the murders, or will their differences and desires to work alone hinder them leading to only more grisly deaths.

    I loved this book. The characters were forced to evolve as they learned more about each other and the history that taught them to hate. The interactions between them a perfect and drive the story forward even as the events around them shape who they are becoming.

    4/5

    Great Book. The book was brought to a great end but could possibly have a sequel. Maybe a Series.
