Overview

Kiss your powers goodbye.

Kidnapping a super-powered suspected felon from a Vegas bachelor party is another day at the office for Jenny Ray, alias Temptress. With one kiss, any naughty supe’s powers are hers. Except this time she’s caught by her mark’s boss, who’s no ordinary superhero.

It’s Thinktank, leader of the toughest hero crew around. One destroyed men’s room and near-toilet-drowning later, Jenny’s forced to steal an innocent hero’s powers.

For a super brain, Tank’s feeling pretty idiotic. First, he let Jenny close enough to get to him. Second, he’s helpless against the tide of desire that rises in him every time he kisses her. Which he’s doing a lot, since she’s trying to give him back his power—only it’s not working. As he shadows her on her various freelance casino security jobs, he realizes she’s no she-demon—she’s a time bomb. Her acquired powers are shredding her, body and soul.

As they give in to desire, a shadowy figure from Jenny’s past surfaces with a kidnapping plan of his own. Jenny will do anything—even level Las Vegas—to rescue the man she loves. But there may not be anything left of her when the dust settles.

Warning: Contains high-stakes poker, high-end cocktails, and high-flying over Las Vegas skies. Never drink and fly!

    Jenny Ray (aka Temptress) has the ability to steal a superhero's

    Jenny Ray (aka Temptress) has the ability to steal a superhero's powers with just a kiss. She freelances for the Vegas police, and is called if there are any supers acting out of line. On a mission at a club to detain Steel, a superhero with super strength, Jenny's cover is blown by a member of the group of superheros he belongs to.

    Thinktank, the leader of M10 isn't easily fooled since his super power is all about the mind. He is able to read thoughts, see statistics/ratios at a glance, and several other perks. Temptress does the only thing she can do, kiss them both to steal their powers and figure out the rest later. The book revolves around Jenny trying to give Thinktank his powers back and also keeping Vegas safe from supers misusing their abilities.

    I cannot tell you how much I loved this book! Temptress is an amazing debut novel that I could not put down. The characters kept my interest, and the plot sucked me in from the start. If you are a Urban Fantasy or Paranormal Romance reader then I highly recommend this book.

    Jenny aka Temptress can take any super heroes power with one kis

    Jenny aka Temptress can take any super heroes power with one kiss. She then gets that persons powers. She uses this to work her jobs and make money. On a mission to bring in a super hero and take his power till he has been freed from charges. All goes well until Thintank catches her. She has to take his powers so she can get the other super to jail. This leads her to get in trouble as Tank is the head super hero. While she should be able to return his powers with a kiss something doesn't go right. Now they are stuck close together until he gets them back. Between trying to unravel a madmans plot and sharing more kisses hoping things will go back to normal they begin to really fall for each other.

    Jenny has more powers than she even knows. She uses them for good and hates to pull up the darker ones. She is confused as to why she can't return Thinktank's power and it bugs her cause she can now know what everyone is thinking and some things she doesn't want to know. A villain has appeared and it seems he knows Jenny but she doesn't know him. She realizes she has some gaps in her memory and he may be the only one to help her get them back. Tank is the boss and tries to keep things going smoothly. Jenny changes all that when se takes his power. Now he is staying close to her and he sees she is a great fighter and she is very hot. The two work great together and have loads of heat between them I really liked this story as the superheroes are amazing and I love all their powers. Jenny is one to jump into things and uses everything she has to put a stop to evil villains. I have to say I loved her very much. She is a phenomenal main character. If you like a story with lots and lots of action and or superheroes be sure to pick this up.
