It’s Meru’s birthday and she’s given an unexpected gift that will reveal her true ability to see what they truly are; hence lifting the veil. She is favoured by a goddess and is gifted the power of future sight and there is a mystery that only she can solve and answer.

Damon the sexy as sin, handsome alpha, and immortal shifter is a guardian of the North Portal to protect the high priestess, keeping dark shifters and others from gaining access to the human world. When he meets Meru, his wolf inst

This is my first story by R.G. Alexander and I found myself totally blown away. Reminiscent of early Laurell K. Hamilton and the worlds of Kelley Armstrong and Kim Harrison, LIFTING THE VEIL brings the world of magic to the reader's senses. I loved everything about this story. I really enjoyed Meru's reaction to discovering all the hidden aspects to the world she lives in. From lizard men to shape shifters, she appeared way in over her head. Although she starts out with a very amusing reaction,

Great story. I loved learning about the Lycoan myth. I never knew the origins of the word "lycan". It was also interesting to think of the Greek gods as aliens. There was discussion of the struggle between Enlil and Enki, from Sumerian mythology. Merlin and Nimue and Danu from Irish/Celtic mythology. There were fae, shapeshifters, lycans... it was chock full of paranormal goodness. And a nice love story/mate-finding thrown in. It's R.G. Alexander, so there was sex of course, but it was pretty ta ...more

I got to say I was really surprised at how well I enjoyed this book. It was a kindle loan from a good friend who recomended it and I'm glad she did. I really struggled to get past chapter one and then all of a sudden it just open up. This author take a new spin on the druids and celtic history. Splashes it up with the greek gods and sumarian gods and a being known as the Archon. It has Merlin and Nimue and a delicious Lycan a cursed Viking. A the Tuatha Danu. It's like every fable and lore rolle ...more

I really enjoyed "Lifting the Veil" the first book in the "Temptation Unveiled" series. A lot of world building went on in this book, but it really didn't take away from the overall story, it only added to it. I didn't feel like the story was rushed at all, but I truly would have liked it to have been longer. Enjoy!

"Lifting the Veil" of reality. Meru Tanner receives The Book of Veils which opens her eyes to a whole new reality. Can she accept the legacy handed down to her from the distant past and convince her Lycan to be a part of her future? Or will the ancient evil that threatens to destroy their world keep them from making a new beginning together? A highly erotic tale that I found interesting; maybe you will too.
