Tempted by Darkness is the first book that I have read by Valerie Twombly. This book is an engaging story that focuses on angels, demons and a new budding species - the vampires. While this book can be read as a standalone novel, I still feel like there is something that I am missing from other previous stories when it comes to certain characters used. Tegan is stuck in his past still mourning the loss of Ana, the woman he loved for years. Years have passed since she passed away and he has since been reunited with his daughter, who went through her own ordeal at one point and time. Tegan now is on earth posing as a newly-wed with Rhea. You quickly sense the attraction between them, even though he himself tries to resist because of his lingering feels towards Ana. I like that despite the fact that Tegan is an elite Hunter angel that this story doesn't play out in his favor at all turns.
This story flows well and is engaging throughout. There are steamy sex situations that are hot and intense. My only issue is when Tegan and Rhea are together the first time. She's never been with a man, but the author glosses over the loss of her virginity. I would have preferred it if the characters are been closer to reality, with there being a reaction from her to reflect her losing it. Especially in light of the fact that he is not gentle with her and doesn't take his time.
The story is well written and engaging from start to finish. I love the twists, turn, and uncertainty in particular moments of the story. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future. I will be going back and reading some of the previous books in this series as well. I enjoy books with angels and demons in them and this book is definitely one that I'm sure I will be rereading in the near future to enjoy yet again. I am rating this book 5 out of 5 stars. I look forward to more from this author in the future.
Tegan is a very old angel that has not gotten over his love of his mortal love Ana. He was given orders to impregnate her in the process he fell in love with her. As she was mortal he had to give her and his child up or risk having them both killed. When Ana died Tegan put his heart on ice for over thirty years. The stirrings of a new species on the human realm had him being tasked with finding out as much info as he could. He also had to work with a partner something he did not like very much.
Rhea a full-blooded pure angel was tasked as Tegan’s new partner. Rhea had always wanted to visit the human realm and she was not going to give this up for anyone not even a surly magnetic angel. Rhea also had another agenda she was on the hunt for her mate. She figured getting out more would expose her to possibly finding him. While she was partnered with Tegan they were to act as husband and wife as they investigated the newly emerging species.
Their mutual attraction exploded much to Tegan’s guilt. While he was guilty he also realized that the darkness was closing in around him more and more. Allowing himself to feel with Rhea was bringing back more of his humanity.
This part of the story isn’t as much of a love story as the others that I have read in this series. While their romance had some steamy parts, Tegan’s over reaction to a perceived betrayal just seemed a bit of a reach considering his advanced angel years. Once they got past that the two of them began working seamlessly as the other mated pairs in this storyline.
This story is much darker than the others that I have read in the series. They are prepping for war with Lucifer and there will be casualties on both sides that may rip mated pairs and families apart as some of them straddle both good and bad. I did miss the camaraderie that the other books had that this one was in short supply of. It was also good to get a little more insight into the backstories of some of the other characters throughout this series. Some parts of the book felt rushed but for the most this story lined up with the others that I have read in the series. There is also a trigger alert warning there is an assault that happens in this story, it and its aftermath are handled well.
