Tempting Evil is the third book in the Riley Jensen guardian series, but the first book in the series that I read. A lot of folks are comparing Keri Arthur's Riley Jensen guardian novels to Laurell Hamilton's Anita Blake vampire hunter novels, with good reason. Both have a butt-kicking heroine with tons of attitude and superpowers that combine the powers of a vampire, a werewolf, and an affinity for the dead. Both heroines have an unearthly beautiful, powerful vampire and a handsome werewolf vying for their love while their powers require them to have sex with pretty much any attractive supernatural guy in the area. Both live in a world where vamps, weres, and more exotic creatures of the night are real, but the background is otherwise the modern world that we know. Both work at enforcing the law on the super-powered folks whose abilities make them more than the average cop can handle. In fact, having read the Anita Blake books, I had a profound sense of déjà vu when I first picked up a Riley Jensen book.

From official release/information:

From publicity material: Set in present day Melbourne, Australia, in Tempting Evil readers catch up to half-werewolf, half-vampire Riley Jensen at the Supernatural Directorate of Other Races where she is on her most dangerous mission yet--going undercover to catch the man behind the cloning attempts and all the recent attempts on her life. (Paranormal Romance)
