Herrera's Temptation by Samara King

Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight…will be at my mercy.

It is his responsibility to ensure minimum risks are taken with his clients. Now that ex-cop Nicolas Herrera is working with his dead partner’s daughter, pretending it is no different from any other case is becoming harder. It’s his duty to protect her, not give in to the wild attraction that shoots between them like electric currents.

Larisa Vega wants this criminal off the streets. If she has to go undercover as a celebrity, she will execute without fail. She doesn’t have time for Nic shadowing her every move with his quiet strength and bedroom eyes. Where was that concern when her father bled to death in his arms?

But when the Starlight rapist turns his sights on Larisa, will she trust the man she holds responsible for her father’s death and for stealing her heart?

Second Edition – This book was previously released by another publisher.

Larisa knows that she's a great cop. But being the only woman in her crew, it sometimes makes her think. With the death of her father so recent, Larisa knows that she just needs to plow ahead. When she's given the assignment to go undercover, she jumps at it... until she finds out that she'll have a babysitter in the form of her dad's hot partner. Nicolas has been the star in some of her erotic dreams since she was younger. But the last thing she wants is him following her around and making her job harder.

The chemistry between Larisa and Nicolas was just okay for me. While I found that their history helped in their "relationship," it also felt somewhat forced. I wanted a more natural flow to their relationship.

Nicolas wants to keep his heart hidden and Larisa thinks that a one off will do the trick. Can either of them figure out that they are what they need? I wish this was slightly longer – it felt cut off at the end and I wanted more of the couple and their story. It will be interesting to see what happens next.

SAMARA KING is the author of sexy contemporary romance and romantic suspense. Writing romance has been woven into Samara's world since her days of sneaking to the back of the library in grade school... of course, at some point, there was studying (usually after the end of a chapter.) When not dreaming up her latest hero who may or may not resemble the likes of Morris Chestnut, Channing Tatum or the latest MUST-HAVE-HIM archetype, Samara can be found jamming out to music, sipping on her favorite drink: cinnamon coffee or if the mood calls for it – because let's get real – often life requires Moscato while watching This Is Us, shopping for plants she cannot kill, and dancing.

Currently, she writes for multiple publishers, including her own imprint Crave. Previously, Samara cohosted SoundNOff, a poetic format for poets and spoken word artists and hosted InCharacterN10, a former showcase for authors on Her well-received poetry collection, The Ebony Kryptonite, preceded her poetic EP, Stripped Barefoot, a sultry mix of poetry and spoken word, which went on to reach #20 in Chicago’s Top 40 on Reverbnation in September 2013.

Samara resides in the Midwest, mixing city life with her family... and characters who never sleep.
