Beck’s sixth installment in the The Shadow Keepers series is one that grabs you from the beginning. Set in a world where otherworldly creatures exist alongside their human counterparts, When Temptation Burns is a sexy, fast-paced, action-packed paranormal tale that will keep you engrossed for hours.

A serial killer is on the loose, and women are being left mutilated and dead, blood drained from their bodies. Agent Ryan Doyle of the Preternatural Enforcement Coalition is on the case. Doyle himself is a centuries old paradaemon: half-human, half-daemon, who feeds off souls to survive. When reporter Andrea “Andy” Tarrent steps into the picture, Doyle is instantly attracted, and Andy can’t help but be drawn to the mysterious agent. As they get closer to finding the killer, Doyle finds it difficult to keep his secret as Andy gets drawn into his world, one that will challenge all that she believes in.
