My dearest, hottest, Kaidan,
From the very moment you walked into my life—before I even knew your name—I knew you were going to change me. And you did. I didn’t need to know where you would take me or what you were going to do to know my life would never be the same now that you were there. You have simultaneously been a world-class pain in the ass, challenging me every step of the way, and a hot-headed, warm-hearted, lost boy in a confident disguise, who secretly only wanted to be loved.
For five years you lived in my mind. I saw the world through your eyes. I saw the physical beauty and appeal in each person to cross my path (as you do as the son of the demon of Lust). I heard every music lyric through your ears, feeling the beat of the drums in each song more deeply than I ever had before. I saw innocence and guilt in each person. I saw the possibility of second chances in each very bad boy.
You brought me back to life, Kai. I will always cherish you.
All my love,
Sweet Temptations Synopsis:
Bad boy Kaidan Rowe has never wanted for anything—money, popularity, musical talent…hot girls—but seducing them is part of his duty as a Nephilim, slave to the demon Dukes. As the son of the Duke of Lust, Kaidan has learned his father’s ways, becoming a master of passion, a manipulator of chemistry. Disobeying his father would mean certain death. Thankfully for Kaidan, he’s good at his job. And he enjoys it.
Until he meets Anna Whitt—smart, feisty, and inexplicably good—the one girl seemingly immune to his charms. The daughter of a guardian angel and a fallen one, she makes him wish for more than he could ever deserve.
Determined to save all the Neph from their dark lives, Anna joins forces with Kaidan to overcome the Dukes’ oppressive ways. In the light of her affections, Kaidan must undergo his toughest test of all, a battle of the heart.
Sensual and swoonworthy, this companion volume to the Sweet Evil series, told from the perspective of the mysterious Kaidan Rowe, gives readers revealing insights into the true emotions that drive him.

Sweet Temptation Excerpt:
“No more sex.”
I blink several times at Anna as we stand outside the car the next morning. Have we been married long enough for her to say that?
“Just until after the summit,” she rushes on.
The summit. The summit where we might die. And then we’ll never have sex again anyway. What rubbish.
I am not ready for this conversation. I want to go back to last night.
“Kaidan . . .” She takes my hands in hers and tries to explain, but I am numb. “You have to pretend not to like me. It sucks, but it’s the smartest plan. If we’re both going to survive this, which I really think we can, and will , this is our best bet. You’re better at hiding your feelings than I am, but at this point it doesn’t matter if they think I have feelings for you. You can even say you made me fall for you to lure me in. Your father trusts you to find me and get me to the summit on your own. That’s huge. He has to think you’re in his pocket until the very last minute. We’ll have freedom to communicate with each other and warn the others. Do you really want to jeopardize one of the only things we have going for us?”
I close my eyes.
Why must she be such a reasonable, positive little pixie?
I squeeze her hands.
“No, I don’t,” I say. “I’m sorry. I’ll do whatever I have to do. Or not do.”
I’m about to ask for one last shag when Anna says firmly, “From here on out, no kissing, no holding hands or touching until this is all over. No doing anything that could look suspicious.”
Her eyebrows go up and I reluctantly nod, then let her hands slide from mine. I am secretly not in agreement, though I understand her caution. When did Anna become the cautious one when it comes to being caught?
