When you want something so desperately that you can feel it in your bones I wondered if that was a good thing or bad. You have to be able to control yourself and make sure you know what you are getting yourself into, and not be pushed too far. Knowing how far to go is the key to success and channeling that is key. So the question becomes am I strong enough to do that. Reading TEMPTATION RISING by A.C. Arthur with Valerie and Chase’s story you see how two strong people handle desire, and the need for complete control.

As a fan of Claude Monet’s I am always moved by how he took the negatives in his life to make them positives. No one liked his paintings, they criticized his innovative style, and what he thought was okay he went with. Life may knock you around but look for the one shining moment in the day and celebrate a Little Victory.
REVIEW from Mary Gramlich "The Reading Reviewer"
TEMPTATION RISING by A.C. Arthur
Should we always understand why we are drawn to someone?
What should have been a routine investigation for Kalina Harper has turned into anything but that. She knows sneaking around Roman Reynolds office is beyond a bad idea but it is something she was assigned to do. Roman is not at all what he appears to be yet Kalina is not sure what that something is that she is unable to see.
There is a shadow world that Roman prowls and protects. Roman now feels that overwhelming need to do all those things with Kalina including possess her and the motivation is unclear. He scents that she may be his perfect match yet she is caught in one lie after another making him wonder if he can trust his own feelings about her. The parts that are missing for Kalina are the same for Roman, family. They are surrounded by people that know them, and yes care for them but no one truly belongs to them.
There is a battle brewing between factions of Romans world and he sees the only constant to be Kalina. Does Kalina see the same in Roman or is he just another job to be completed. Then there is the darkest secret of all that Kalina must reveal that she is not even sure she herself understands. The more Kalina spends time with Roman the more she realizes that business does not mix well with pleasure and Roman is an expert at giving her pleasure.
A.C. Arthur has hit everything right with this book with an ability to have as much romance as there is character tension. Nothing goes smoothly but Ms. Arthur shows it can all come together when written with pizazz.
