Jade-Scarlet's membership in the powerful Order of the Sibile has always been controversial. A hal...more

Very glad I bothered, the author was straight into the sexual-tension-caused-by-irresistable-scents thing which is one of my favourite aspects of the shifter trope. So good start, followed by a good book. Liked the general world it was set in, the author has obviously put some thought into it and I particularly liked the idea of t...more
His eyes smoldering, he said only two words. “Prove it.”
Ah man, this was better than i thought. I'm so glad i picked up this book. Dee Tenorio is a good author, i must say! :)
I loved the characters and the story was well written. Getting to see both Jade and Pale's pov was perfect, and i enjoyed the whole book.
He traced her chin, running his fingers to her throat, watching them wander over the swells of her breasts to the line of the towel. His finger hooked the edge aga...more

Rysen is the requisite hunky-alpha-male, and Jade the expected counterpart – sexually inexperienced, not fully in control of her abilities, and determined not to give in to Rysen’s demands. While neither character made a huge impression on me individually, I did enjoy the two of them together. The interaction was lively, and I loved some of their conversations:
“I told you I...more

- the bonding scene > just wow... I have no words to describe what this scene did to me
Jade-Scarlet is an empathic Sibile with the gift of manipulating light and a half-breed Wolf shifter. She’s sarcastic, defiant, giving and loyal.
Pale Rysen is a homicide detective and Wolf shifter. He’s the Alpha of a pack he’s trying to build up after the humans tr...more

Tempting the Enemy is one of those books that I wasn't sure what to expect with this new-to-me author, however, ended up being very pleased with. To me, it's a combination of CSI, paranormal investigations, and M.Knight Shyamalon's 'The Village'. Okay, I may be a stretching a bit, but you'll see what I mean when you read it! I was hooked from the beginning to the end, following the non-stop action and suspense, and getting all warmed up from the amount of heat being throw...more
Pale is a true alpha male. I loved the fact that he acted the part, but didn't broadcast it to everyone and expect them to bow down to him. And while you could tell that his temper was always thin as wind, he always managed to keep himself in check. He especially kept himself together when dealing with his Jade.
Jade was a likeable character. She...more
* I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*
Tempting the enemy by Dee Tenorio was a smart, sexy book. Even with the intrigue of the Woodsman killings, the scenes between Pale and Jade were HOT!
The police department called in a Sibile to help them solve the Woodsman killings. Pale is not comfortable with this decision but has resigned himself to work with her, until he realizes that she is also an unmated wolf in heat. This fac...more
At the beginning I was worried this was going to be love at first sight, or in this case scent but I was wrong....more
What a wonderfully creative and inventive world that Dee has created here. This is book #1 in the Resurrection series. Resurrection is a mountain in California that was created as a refuge for shifters. In this world, shifters were subjected to genocide by humans and the packs have been dissolved. Pale, as an alpha, is recreating the pack-life at Resurrection. He also lives as a human working as a homicide detective. Both jobs are int...more
Detective Pale Rysen knows what it’s like to be hunted. That’s why he, the Alpha Wolf, has dedicated his life to protecting and rescuing others. But when a serial killer known as the Woodsman starts targeting young women, Pale fears even he won’t be able to discover the madman’s identity. That doesn’t mean that he wants to work with a hated Sibile, however. Yet Jade-Scarlet isn’t what he expected; for one thin...more
I really enjoyed this one. I hadn't really expected much from it, especially as it is another story with shifters and matebonds and stuff which I am not keen on. But it was well done and the heroine was a strong and likeable character to counterbalance the Wolfie stuff. I even felt that despite the short time span, the relationship between the H/h was pretty realistic for the situation they both found themselves in and their natures as shifter/half-shifter. Oh and the sex scenes were...more

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 m...more
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 recom...more
