Novellus superbus!
Goodreads appetizer: The USA Today bestselling author tempts success in this stunning debut novel.

National bestselling author Eileen Wilks draws readers into a bold new world where the magical and mundane co-exist in an uneasy alliance--and a cop balanced on her own knife-edged struggle is their only hope against a cold-blooded killer.

Lily Yu is a San Diego police detective investigating a series of grisly murders that appear to be the work of a werewolf. To hunt down the killer, she must infiltrate the clans. Only one man can help her - a werewolf named Rule Turner, a prince of the lupi, whose charismatic presence disturbs Lily. Rule has his own reasons for helping the investigation - reasons he doesn't want to share with Lily. Logic and horror demand she keep her distance, but the attraction between them is immediate and devastating - and beyond human reason. Now in a race to fend off evil, Lily finds herself in uncharted territory, tested as never before, and, at her back, a man she's not sure she can trust...

My thoughts: Tempting Danger is book #1 in the World of the Lupi UF series. Eileen Wilks developed the idea, main story in Only Human, and at first I thought she was only "fattening up" her basic plot of Only Human in Tempting Danger, but as I started reading I saw that besides a few familiar scenes Tempting Danger became an independent, completely separate story. My only two complaints with Only Human were satisfactorily dealt with in Tempting Danger when Eileen Wilks had more time and space to delve into details. A fantastic read!
