Part vamp, part werewolf, Riley Jenson plays by her own rules, whether it's her stormy love life or her job as a guardian. But when her family's alpha male demands that she solve the mystery of a vanished girl, Riley can feel a trap closing in around her. Because the job comes with a catch: if Riley fails, her own mother will die. Now the stakes are raised, and the hunt is on. And when more women vanish, Riley is caught between a lover who demands that she give up her work, a serial killer who knows no boundaries, and a club where humans and supernaturals mix-at their own peril. Thrust into a realm of seduction and violence unlike any she could have imagined, Riley has to battle to save everything she holds dear. But the ultimate hunt has only just begun.

    " Was waiting for more Quinn stuff.... book was ok.. not going in a direction I would have put the series... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelleyrae at Book'd Out | 1/17/2014

    " I found Embraced by Darkness much better balanced between Riley as a character, the plot and the sex and violence. However it was obvious that the club would somehow be involved in Riley's cousins disappearance and I thought it was unlikely that she couldn't make that leap so it bugged me. That said I did enjoy it. Tempting Evil (#3) very nearly ruined this series for me but I'm much more willing to finish the series after reading 4 and 5. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielle Smiley | 12/29/2013

    " This series gets better as it goes on and this one isn't really trashy for a change(mind you, a good sex scene is always a plus, but when she is having sex with anyone and everyone, its just icky). Riley is very much a likeable character who is growing and accepting the changes in her life much like any of us would - with some grace but mostly kicking and screaming. "

    " There's nothing like playing cat and wolf, lolz. Riley's on the run in this one, will she escape or will she be caught? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diksha | 12/5/2013

    " This is one of my favorites by far--other than the very first one--in this series. The storyline was awesome. Riley is finally at the point of transitioning from just surviving to actually living her life, and going after what she wants. I love the complexity of her character. I love the passion with which she lives every moment of her life. I love going into Riley's world. Keri Arthur creates the world so completely that it feels more real than it should. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Irene Hollimon | 12/5/2013

    " I really liked the book although the way Ms Arthur gets heroine out of binds is sometimes a little far fetched james bondesque. It moves fast and there is enough character development to curious to see what happens in the next book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leigh Michaels | 11/18/2013

    " Little slow in the middle but the I did not see it ending the way it did! Can't wait to read the next one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacy | 6/7/2013

    " Honestly it isn't one of my favorite Riley books but it's still pretty good. The series is good actually but don't expect a happily ever after ending between Riley and most of her guys it's not your typical Romance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tina "coffee and books" | 1/15/2013

    " This book wasn't the same without Quinn. I wanted so bad to like Kellan and I did feel sorry for him, but he just isn't for Riley. "
