My Review:

"Temptation on Ice" by Cherry Adair is a short story in T-FLAC series. Time is running out for kidnapped scientist Michaela when Sebastian, the man she's dreamt of for years arrived to 'rescue' her. But Sebastian's assignment is to take out the sexy woman, he believes faked her own death and is working for the enemy on a bomb that will destroy the world

I liked the characters' back-story and thought that Sebastian's ability to borrow others' paranormal powers was neat, the next thing I know Sebastian is having sex with Michaela and then plans to kill her afterwards. (3 stars) 

"Temptation in Shadows" by Gena Showalter was my favorite story of the bunch.  Gabby is a survivor of an experiment that has left her with very dangerous powers. Sean is an operative in a paranormal agency working undercover as a bodyguard in order to get close to Gabby - his job is to determine if Gabby is a threat which needs to be neutralized.
Sean is a great character and I loved his power of manipulating the shadows and the chemistry between him and Gabby is hot. (3.5 stars)
Hunting Temptation" by Lorie O`Clare is about bounty hunter hero, Seth, tracking down a serial killer goes to his favorite 'source' - who unknown to Seth is a werewolf - for info and catches the attention of his informant's sister Jenna. Jenna is intrigued by the human and decides to evade her protective pack to entice Seth to scratch her itches - and inadvertently sets herself up as the next target for the killer.  Seth was a  good character but Jenna was naive and never listened to her brother - she always found herself in situations. (3 stars)
