Summary

We're tempted to play games, thinking they will give us more power–but that only works if we win.

After spending the holidays with my guardian's family, it seems that everyone in the temple has the wrong idea. The Baron isn't my patron. He's not even a friend. In truth, I hate the man.

But the rumor mill is strong, and jealousy is running rampant.

This is all just one more excuse for my instructors to hold me back, lower my grades, and try to force me to choose one path. I can't! My god needs me to save him, and the Path of Temptation gives me the power to do that.

Except that I'm drowning in the pressure, feeling like I'm failing my god. I need to make people believe in him, but how can I do that when I can't believe in myself? All these mind games are starting to pile up, and it's tearing me apart.

But Zeal is getting stronger.

That's enough to keep me going. No matter how hard they try to push me down, I'll just keep fighting back, learning to play this game better each time. I will not become the victim here, because I'm not doing this alone. My lovers will always stand with me.

But this is not a game. If we fail, we'll lose everything...including each other.

The Path of Temptation series features a strong woman and the men who love her. It includes graphic language, adult situations, and potentially triggering violence and discussions of rape and assault. It is intended for a mature audience.

Steamy

In Carseth there are six gods: Intuition, Compassion, Ambition, Perception, Inspiration and Temptation. This book is about how the god of Temptation is trying to survive in a world that no longer believes and his chosen, Nariana and her four men to help. In this third book, we follow them through their first year of initiative training where two instructors are trying to keep Nariana from following her given path but she intends to succeed at any cost. She just needs to learn she doesn’t have to do it herself.

Please note-there are a lot of graphic sex scenes which are extremely important to the story.
