The Complete Tempted Series by Selene Charles
This is the complete boxed set of all three books in the Tempted series, a spinoff of the Night Series which features a carnival of the damned, a grim reaper known as Dean, and Pandora, one of the seven deadly sins also known as Lust. There is a lot of crossover between both series, but you do not need to read one to understand the other.
Book 1: Forbidden
Welcome to Whispering Bluff, Tennessee. Where the guys are hot. The girls are sweet. And nothing is what it seems…
Flint DeLuca is sick and tired of moving. She and her dad have moved three times in the past year. But that’s the life of a carnie. Even an ex-carnie like her. Her father swears this is the last move. All Flint wants now is to graduate from High School and put the carnival life behind her. Unfortunately, one of the two ain’t gonna happen. So now not only is she back in the life she can never seem to get away from, she’s also met this guy who pushes all her “I totally hate you” buttons.
Cain. No last name. Wears shades in school. Dresses entirely in black. And only speaks to her when he’s insulting her. She hates him. Hates him. And yet… there’s something about the Goth boy that draws her like a moth to flame. God, she can’t wait to graduate and get away from Whispering Bluff, only problem is she’s pretty sure her high school is infested by vampires. Cain might be one of them. And for some reason, she seems to be on their menu.
Sometimes High School really sucks…
Book 2: Reckless
The day Flint DeLuca moved to Whispering Bluff, TN she thought her life was over…until she met the dark, brooding, and seriously hot Cain. And then things were epic. Until they weren’t.
Prom night, her school is bombed by a pack of monsters known as hive, Flint’s nearly killed in the explosion and her best friend Abel is kidnapped—all of it orchestrated by Cain’s crazy mother, Layla aka The Hive Queen.
The race is on to find Abel before Layla can turn him into one of her twisted creatures. But when a sword keeps appearing and disappearing in Flint’s room, one that bears strange markings on it and hints at a secret buried deep in her past, Flint’s already chaotic life is turned upside down. Now not only must she find a way to save Abel, but everything she thought she knew of her world and her life is about to change forever…
Book 3: Possessed
Flint DeLuca had hoped that recapturing Abel from Layla’s vicious clutches would have been the end of a very long nightmare, but she couldn’t have been more wrong. She’s taken her friend–now twisted into a thing of rage-filled darkness–deep below the earth to heal and recover from the atrocities his mother committed upon him, only to discover they’ve been tricked by the dark fae court and have been thrust into a game of high stakes. Where the winners walk away, but the losers die.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, back on Earth, Cain’s grappling with biblical end time prophecy, an Aunt who may or may not be the reincarnation of the Scarlet Woman doomed to tear open the Gates of Hell, and the loss of his mate and his brother.
Great sacrifices will be required of them both, losses will accrue on every side, will Cain and Flint find their way back to each other? Only time will tell…time neither of them have much of…
