“I have to tell you that I truly enjoyed this novella.  It had a good suspenseful story line and most definitely great in the sexy department.” ~ Under The Covers

First Temptation is a novella following after Intimate Enemies of the Covert Affairs series by Joan Swan.  I was a bit surprised that there was a novella for this series.  Being that I enjoyed Intimate Enemies, I just had to jump at the chance to read this book.  Well, I’m glad I didn’t miss it because Ms. Swan wrote another hot and engaging read.

Zoe was a Border Patrol Agent who is ready to do some undercover work.  Unfortunately, in this line of work, women do not get the same credibility as men do.  Especially when her colleagues, won’t give her the benefit of the doubt.  She will need to work hard to earn respect…oddly, as a cop and as a seductive woman.  Well, she would have to as her assignment is to go undercover with Agent Taft as a couple who are very, very active and comfortable in their sexual activities.

I have to tell you that I truly enjoyed this novella.  It had a good suspenseful story line and most definitely great in the sexy department.  The tension between Zoe and Taft were palpable, and their banter made me laugh-out-loud.  I can’t help but wonder if Zoe or her previous partner was mentioned in Intimate Enemies as that book focused on Mexico’s gangs and border issues.  I actually tried to look, but my lendable copy had expired. =( On that note,  I love seeing a bit of Rio. He still exudes confidence and still has the I’m-the-big-shot persona.  Ms. Joan definitely knows how to create sexy heroes.
