The Shadowdwellers live in a realm of darkness and sensuality, where order is prized and sin must be punished. Yet for Magnus, the head priest of Sanctuary, salvation rests with the one woman who can entice him to break every rule. . .

She Was The Ultimate Temptation


Magnus is a man of contradictions--a spiritual leader in a warrior's body. To him, laws are for enforcing and visions must be followed--even if that means freeing a beautiful slave and making her his reluctant handmaiden. Betrayed once before, Magnus can barely bring himself to trust another woman. Yet Daenaira's fiery innocence is drawing them both into a reckless inferno of desire.

Daenaira grew up hearing tales of a fearsome priest who seemed more myth than reality. But Magnus is very real--every inch of him--and so is the treachery surrounding them. Beneath Sanctuary's calm surface, an enemy is scheming to unleash havoc on the Shadowdwellers, unless Magnus trusts in a union ordained by fate, and sealed by unending bliss. . .

I love this series. I enjoy it more and more with each book. This one is about the highest priest of the Shadowdwellers and how he learns to trust again. Of course there is a lot of sword fighting and sex too. That helps. I really liked his partner. She was a slave and he "bought" her to become his handmaiden. Handmaiden's are the priests right hand. She has trust problems too, since she was a slave for most of her life. But she is very strong and intelligent and knows just what her priest needs. Next one comes out in January. I am looking forward to it.read more

Great story about Magnus and Daenaira. She has been held as a slave for 8 years and suddenly out of the blue, guards show up and whisk her away to the Sanctuary. She has been abused and does not trust anyone. Magnus has no idea that she has gone through such torture, he simply wants a new handmaiden and the Gods sent him Dae. The relationship between the two of them is intense and very detailed. An additional plot about someone trying to take over the Sanctuary is also included, I think just the relationship aspect would have been enough. It was that good. But, the possible downfall of the Sanctuary was also very good and just added to the story. J. Frank is one of my favorite authors. Her writing is just plain good. I really liked this book and loved all the characters. J. Frank doesn't just give you tidbits of each character of importance, she gives you great details so you can understand why they do or say the things they do. I think that is another one of the reasons I like her writing so much.read more

GREAT BOOK!!!!!!read more
