Review: Shades of Temptation by Virna DePaul

3 STARS I really like the story line. Drama was high till the end. Like the characters. This is the second book of this series that I have read. Shades of Desire was the first book that I have read. It did have a lot of swear words and sex scenes that I could have done without. Carrie Ward is a strong women with good points and faults. She really wants to make a difference with her life. Special Agent Carrie Ward worked forCalifornia Department of Justice's Special Investigations Group. In the past she worked as a swat sniper. was milatary police and before that she was an Olympic shooter in fact she won a silver medal. Carrie is attracted to a member of her team Jase. Jase is a serial dater she calls him. He is good looking and women come up to him all the time. Jase flirts with her and she thinks it is because she is hard to get not for her at all. One night when Jase follows her out of the bar leaving his date inside to flirt with her she gets mad at him and bites hard on his ear. After that she walks off to cool down and sees a teen burlger and chases after him when he runs. He comes out of the house and he is so young she hesatates and is shot in the leg. Her second shot kills him. Jase Tyler lost it when he heard Carrie was shot. He can't get her off his mind. He does not want a strong women especially a cop in his personal life. He likes easy relaxing women. He wants to be lead investigator on a serial murder his group was going to head. He heard that Carrie was going to get it . He did not think she was up to heading the investigation. He went to boss on that. Carrie heard that Jase had questioned her fitness to head the serial investigation and that he wanted to be in charge of it. Jase was not the first to think that Carrie was not ready. Both men did not know if its because she is a women, just coming back to work after being shot and killing a teen. Plus the grandmother of teen filed a lawsuit. So Carrie had to work with Jase but she was the lead. They both fought thier attraction to each other. Carrie's home was fire bombed and Jase had her stay with him and then working with him they both gave into the temptation. Carrie has to struggle to be strong but also to have a life outside of work. She is willing to give her life to protect others. Jase realizes that he can handle a strong women and is also willing to risk his life to save others. I was given this email to read in exchange of honest review by Netgalley. 09/25/2012 PUB Harlequin imprint HarlequinHQN
