Temptation Unleashed - Kari Thomas

Title: Temptation Unleashed
Author: Kari Thomas
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Number of Pages: 272

Something wild this way comes. Once a powerful, practicing Wiccan, Kira Douglas has reluctantly moved to wild and beautiful Sedona, Arizona for only one reason-assume custody of her dead sister's daughter. She immediately runs into an obstacle. The child's uncle, the disturbingly sexy Aiden Calhoun, refuses to give her up. Aiden has good reason for not allowing Kira custody of his precious niece. The child is half witch, half shapeshifter. Allowing her to take the girl could expose the family's shapeshifting secret he has spent a lifetime protecting. Their instant attraction isn't just an inconvenient temptation. It could put his entire family in danger. But an evil force is re-emerging, bent on destroying everything they know and love. The only way to survive is to put all differences aside. And overcome the nightmare that once broke Kira's faith. This title has been revised and expanded from its previously published version. Warning: This book contains explicit, howling-under-the-desert-moon love scenes and some wash-your-mouth-out-with-soap language.

First thoughts after...

Why Kitty Kira??  That was never answered....I think there's something to it.

How distracted did I get?
Temptation Unleashed is a fascinating story of witches and shifters with lack of trust for the other.  Kira stopped practicing witchcraft after a horrific incident.  She's strong and yet she's putty when around Aiden.  Aiden, a hot shifter that loves protecting his family.  Enough said.  I feel I figured out the bad guy pretty easily and he/she is revealed pretty early.  Which I liked in this case to see if the others could figure it out.  I would recommend Temptation Unleashed to the shifter/wiccan read fans!

I give Temptation Unleashed.....
