A letter from one swooning teen girl to a nymph drummer:
We’ve been through quite a bit these past few book. I have wanted to make out with you, stab you, hug you, make out with you some more. Stab you some more too. I know, I know. That’s a pretty common reaction when it’s concerning you. Well that and wanting to sleep with you, you being the son of the demon of lust and all that.
All the other books were from Anna’s perspective, and I have to say, getting to know you from YOU was rather wonderful. And those moments when Anna’s daddy put the Fear of God (pardon the pun) into you and I just love her dad. He’s so protective of her. Of course him being the Lord of Substance Abuse sort of adds to the mystery. AND HIS LOVE STORY WITH HER MOM IS JUST SO AWHHHH.
But, you. Kai. You’re so sweet. And I love that I can see all aspects of you in SWEET TEMPTATION. You’re so worried, and so in love, and so curious. Since this books has you through all of the first three, it’s a bit of a condensed. It’s helpful to have the first three books under your belt.
I think that you are one of the most un-perfect, laugh-out-loud, sweetest not-humans I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading about. You love her. Love her love her. I sort of do and don’t wish for panty-dropping drummers like you in the real world. You show humans the dirty parts of ourselves. You make us look beyond what we are and into who we want to be. All the Lords and nymphs of the less-than-perfect ideals do. I mean, y’all are pretty much the definition of temptation.
Kai, you are really one of a kind. And I’m so happy I got to read a story told in your perspective.
P.S. Totally have decided I want some drummers like you in the real world.

Bad boy Kaidan Rowe has never wanted for anything—money, popularity, musical talent…hot girls—but seducing them is part of his duty as a Nephilim, slave to the demon Dukes. As the son of the Duke of Lust, Kaidan has learned his father’s ways, becoming a master of passion, a manipulator of chemistry. Disobeying his father would mean certain death. Thankfully for Kaidan, he’s good at his job. And he enjoys it.
Until he meets Anna Whitt—sweet, smart, feisty, and inexplicably good—the one girl seemingly immune to his charms. The daughter of a guardian angel and a fallen one, she has a certain power over him, one that makes him wish for more than he could ever deserve.
Determined to save all the Neph from their dark lives as the influencers of sin, Anna joins forces with Kaidan to overcome the demons’ oppressive ways. In the light of her affections, Kaidan must undergo his toughest test of all, a battle of the heart.
Sensual and swoon worthy, this companion volume to the acclaimed Sweet Evil series from New York Times bestselling author Wendy Higgins, told from the perspective of the irresistibly sexy and mysterious Kaidan Rowe, gives readers revealing insights into his struggle, his intense connection to Anna, and most of all, the true emotions that drive him.
Sweet Temptation will encompass the entire trilogy in a condensed version, beginning with Kai's life before he met Anna, and taking readers through the epilogue of Sweet Reckoning. Sweet Temptation is a companion novel, not meant to be a stand alone story. It will definitely be a richer experience for those who have read the original trilogy.
