Darkest Temptation by Rachel Van Dyken

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Publishing Date: October 31st, 2017

I'm a werewolf King who chose to step down out of grief for my mate.
For centuries I've been alone, choosing to live a life of modesty despite the wealth surrounding me.
I deserve to be punished.
I crave things I have no business craving.
And it is manifesting itself in a way I'm terrified I won't be able to control any longer.
Especially since she arrived.
Vampire. Orphan. Beaten beyond recognition.
My blood calls to her in a way that makes no sense.
I'm a wolf.
She's a vampire.
The two don't mate.
They barely tolerate one another.
All it takes is one slip of control on my part — one taste.
And I doom us all.
Then again, I never knew what is lurking inside has the power to balance good and evil.


I have been waiting patiently for Mason's story. I fell in love with Mason when we first met this group of friends in The Dark Ones.  I am not usually a fan of the paranormal genre, but knowing Rachel's writing style and how I LOVE anything and everything she writes, I threw caution to the wind and said, "what the heck, why not."

From the other books in the series, I knew Mason's story was going to break my heart. I loved seeing WHY Mason acted the way he did, what made him make the decisions he did, why he felt the need to punish himself.  I loved seeing Mason, the wolf, fall in love. I loved seeing Mason take back what was rightfully his.

I will be honest with you, there is a lot of back story that you MUST pay attention to. Rachel gives a lot of details on who each character came to be where they are in their lives. So PAY ATTENTION. 


The air around me thickened with a sweet-smelling fog. I inhaled and closed my eyes, allowing my baser instincts to take over. “Wolf.” She whispered my name. I sniffed. The voice was not familiar. It was not my mate. It was… other. “Wolf,” she beckoned again. Branches crunched beneath my feet as I made my way closer to the sweet scent, closer to the warmth, closer to what I should have been running from. I was already mated. And yet — I was being pulled. Like a siren’s song. I hated sirens. Every last one of them. But only the strongest were male. This — I sniffed the air again as ecstasy took over — this was no male. This was all female. The instinct to protect kicked in, forcing a surge of adrenaline through my limbs as I staggered toward the trees. Green eyes blinked through the fog. I stilled. My breath caught. Vampire. I frowned, reaching for her. “Kiss me, Wolf.” Why was I tempted? Why did I want to touch this being? When every hair stood on end like she was foe not friend. When I had a mate back home that I loved more than life itself. Confusion warred with disgust, and then the vampire stood on her tiptoes and pressed her cheek against mine, the way my people greeted. But she was no wolf. Her lips grazed the outside of my ear before she bit down onto my neck… I jerked awake. Sweat pooled the bed like I’d just taken a shower. And my mate, the one I was so convinced would be lying right next to me, was gone. She’d been gone. Over a hundred years. And every year, like clockwork, on the anniversary of her death. I saw my vampire. She bit me. And I woke up with a bruise on my neck as if it were real.
