Sweet Temptation  - Maya Banks 4.5 stars. Favorite in this series so far. Probably in the whole series, as I doubt the next two books will live up to this one.This book didn't offend my feminist sensibilities! Which was a big surprise! There's a part where the heroine is kidnapped by a deranged stalker and taken to a remote cabin for probable rape and possible murder, and guess what? She beats him up, handcuffs him and ties him to a table, and walks miles with a gunshot wound to find help. I was totally expecting her to wait around for the hero to rescue her! But nope, she had actual agency. So awesome!I also thought this one had the best romantic conflict of the first four books.
