Deliver Me From Temptation (Paladin Warriors #2) by Tes Hilaire




Logan Calhoun is the last full-blooded Paladin, the future leader of a race of immortal warrior angels. The heavy responsibility of continuing the Paladin line falls to him, and the last thing he should do is get involved with a human. 

Then fate throws Jessica Waters, a homicide detective who doesn't believe in fate or divine intervention, into his path. Her devotion lies in her Glock and a good set of handcuffs. Like Logan, she's a warrior for her people, and she awakens within him something he'd never thought he'd feel. But she's also as human as they come...





Type: Paranormal Romance, Angels/Paladin/Demons/Vampires
Heat: 3 out of 5
Rating: 5 out of 5
Deliver Me From Temptation was one of those read until your eyes burn, can't stay awake a single second more type of reads for me. I absolutely devoured it and didn't want to give this book up. The characters were wonderful. They're sexy and honorable as all get out and so easy to fall in love with. And the suspense was exciting and had me on the edge of my seat more than once. It just doesn't get better than that.

Jessica and Logan were brilliant together. The two were so suited for each other even if they couldn't always see it. They're both, without question, warriors and strong individuals. Logan is one of those delicious sigh inducing men and Jessica's a kick ass heroine that I absolutely adored. She's tough as nails, no nonsense and determined as hell to get what she wants even if it's a little risky. I really loved that they fell into each others paths because of the happenings in book one surrounding his best friend Roland [it still reads really well as a stand alone so no worries there]. It was just a nicely done carry over.
One of the things Hilaire does so wonderfully is putting her secondary characters to use. You get little tastes of the other warriors but they always take a back seat to the main couple and provide support without overshadowing them. And Sweet. Mary. Those warriors are so freaking hot! I love all their interactions together and am damn near aswoon over Alexander. Damn if he doesn't make me all growly ;) That man NEEDS his own book! <g> *  and yep, that was my oh so subtle hint Mrs Hilaire lol*
 
The ending. OMG. The ending was one of the best I've read. Tears. Edge of my seat fidgeting. Didn't see it coming... wonderful. Everything I could have asked for. If you haven't picked up Hilaire's Paladin Warriors series yet it's really a must read. Hilaire has a wonderful voice and created an incredibly rich world that's easy to get lost in. The characters are complex, damaged but so incredibly likable you'll want to spend more time with them.

    and now after your review I'm really fiending.

  25. I haven't read any of these, but the review makes me wonder just why not! And what I've been missing! Great attention grabbing review ;)
    And I have to say, I love the sound of the H, an angel who is a true Warrior, not some being who doesn't know how to deal with what gets thrown at him or needs an modern person to rescue him. Some of the current angel stories have left me wondering how they could have been the first beings created, they just didn't work for me. This sounds more like what I have always imagined.
