    1. USA Today bestselling author of passion, danger and suspense I live in the magnificent wine country of California s central coast with my husband and two daughters.

    2. This was the first book/novella I've ever read by Joan Swan, but after this delicious morsel, I want more. So much more.Zoe Brooks was one kick a$$ heroine. As a Border Patrol Agent she was out in the field taking down bad guys left and right. She was tough, efficient, focused and definitely had the respect and backup of her team. It took courage for her to admit that the field work was getting to her in ways that could put her life and that of her team on the line if she got reckless. During he [...]

    3. My Review:What a fabulous book. This is the second series I've begun that features ICE agents and I'm soldI want more books featuring these incredible guys/girls.This book starts off with an incredible, adrenaline-infused scene and I loved the fact that it was a scene featuring Zoe to show just how tough this girl is on the job. Wow! She's incredible. But then immediately, she is thrown into a situation with Taft and her boss, Rio, where she has to prove just how feminine and alluring she can be [...]

    4. Wowza! What a fantastic novella to accompany the Covert Affairs series by Joan Swan! After reading Intimate Enemies, which is one of my faves, I wanted more! I love these characters and was delighted that Rio is in First Temptation, too.There were so many things I loved about First Temptation. Right away there is action and danger. Zoe Brooks is a border patrol agent who is ready to change jobs. Her first assignment working undercover with ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) pairs her with [...]

    5. Originally posted HERE.When I downloaded a review copy of this book, I’m not sure I looked all that closely at the blurb!The ‘Covert Affairs’ title drew me in, because I’ve recently overdosed on sugary small town romances, and was in the mood for something a bit edgier.I don’t think you’ll get much edgier than two people working undercover in a sex shop!For a novella that is – ahem – rather focused on the sex, I was impressed by the attention to detail in the action scenes and th [...]

    6. Rating: 3 Stars - Liked ItSpoil Free Review:The cover alone caught my attention. Sexy and eye catching. First Temptation starts off with great action with a kick butt heroine Zoe. Loved how it started and how her and Taft first meet. I was not big on the insta-love but like a lot of novella's that is what happens sometimes. It is a hot fan your self and enjoyable read. I did like Joan Swan writing voice and writing style but I was hoping to be more wowed with Zoe and Taft relationship. I do alre [...]

    7. As a big Joan Swan fan I'm a little mad at myself for putting off reading this series for so long. Joan Swan's writing is always great and both novellas from this series I have read haven been both sexy and fun. I loved that the heroine in this one was strong and capable but also was vulnerable. The chemistry between these two characters was great. I look forward to reading more in this series. For readers that haven't checked this author out yet, she is definitely one to put at the top of the T [...]

    8. What do you get when you mix a tough border control agent and a Counterterrorist agent who have to go undercover in a sex shop to catch someone who’s helping terrorist? An extremely funny and very hot and steamy read. Oh there is plenty of action too to get your heart pumping along with the all the sex toys  And as a added bonus Rio from Intimate Enemies is Taft’s boss and running the op. I loved all the stories in this book and didn’t have a favorite until I read the last one – First [...]

    9. 3.5 stars. I enjoyed this quick read, but this is one that could've really used a longer treatment. I understand this is a novella, but this story has great bones and I really wanted to know more about the characters. Moreover, Taft really starts off as a douche and could use more time to redeem himself. He eventually does, but barely. I really liked the first book in this series, Intimate Enemies and am thrilled to get an "appearance" by Rio. I look forward to the next book in the series, but I [...]

    10. *GEEZ* All I can say is that I needed to take a LONG COLD SHOWER after reading this to cool myself off!!! I ABSOLUTELY LOVED this little addition to the Covert Affairs series; it was hot and suspenseful and did I say hot? ;) I loved how strong Zoe was and Taft *SIGH* i'd dance around a pole for him ANYDAY!!! LOL!! WELL DONE Ms. Swan!!! This one is most definitely going on my loved-it shelf! *ARC courtesy of Netgalley and Joan Swan*

    11. This book was fun but far too short to justify the deep love the h/h feel for each other. They've known each other less than a week--and been working a very dangerous undercover--and yet they become soul mates instantly. I also found the heroine to be portrayed primarily through her looks. She's supposed to be a top notch Border Patrol Agent and yet she's the hottest pole dancer ever, every man wants her, yadda yadda yadda.

    12. Loved it. Zoe and Taft were on fire. Zoe was a strong heroine who could kick ass. Taftgh.Can't wait to read more from this series.

    13. The second book in this series keeps some of the same threats that the first one mentioned but if you haven't read it, you will still be able to follow the story. We get a glimpse of the first book main characters which is nice but they are not the stars of this book. Tate and Zoe are hot together and the difficulties they face as a couple falling in love while undercover is well written.

    14. ripeforreader/201My rating: 4.5 of 5⭐Zoe Brooks is a tough and determined Border Patrol Agent, but since the death of her partner Cody, she has been looking to move into a different direction of law enforcement. When an opportunity to go undercover with ICE to bring down a new cross-border transportation mode for the powerful Mexican cartel, she is ready and eager to jump in!Counterterrorist agent Taft Walker is not happy being partnered with the rookie undercover agent, who looks like she is [...]

    15. Okay…let me just say “HELL YEAH!” “First Temptation” is a novella from her series “Covert Affairs”This book was everything I love to see in romance stories. A tough woman, who can kick drug cartel ass, yet who oozes so much sex appeal she could be a stripper. A hot sexy guy who tries to be an overbearing Alpha, but then realizes he can stand with her or against her.Zoe is trying to get away from her current job as a Border Patrol Agent. She wants to try something different and if s [...]

    16. *Book provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review.Originally posted on Adria's Romance ReviewsI admit, I was a little nervous to read First Temptation. Not because author Joan Swan doesn't deliver, she always does. No, I was nervous because of, get this, the blurb.Why? Because it is a contemporary romance that used the dreaded "V" word. The heroine, Zoe Brooks, is a sex toy virgin and I was afraid that meant a boring, saintly, "innocent" little fool. I was nervous because I thought "W [...]

    17. Zoe has been ready to move on from her job as a Border Patrol Agent ever since the death of one of her partners, Cody. When a risqué undercover position with ICE comes up, Zoe jumps at the chance to be part of it. Her experience and knowledge will give her the edge she needseven if it means having to work with Taft. Taft initially doesn't think Zoe has what it takes professionally or personally to get the job done, but Zoe soon proves him wrong!Working together as a married couple running their [...]

    19. (SEX) TOYS-R-US !!Edit Normally I like to start my postings off with a link to the book on , but as of this writing, there ISN’T a link up yet – boo :( !! This novella also has some name flip-flopping, because the cover on my ARC shows the title as “First Addiction”, but NetGalley & Joan Swan’s website show it as “First Temptation”. I’m mentioning BOTH names so that you can more easily find it when it reaches its release date of 8/19/13. (Of course, you can always just run a [...]

    20. First Temptation by Joan Swan is one very hot romantic suspense story. It is the second book in Joan's Covert Affairs Series and much steamier than the first one, Intimate Enemies.In First Temptation, we follow the story of Taft (Counterterrorism Agent) and Zoe (Border Patrol Agent) and their assignment to go undercover by posing as a couple that owns an adult store next to suspected Mexican cartel smugglers. It was quite entertaining to read about because Zoe knows nothing about the adult "toys [...]

    21. Wow!! That was a seriously hot little read!!!! The chemistry was off the charts and scrumptious!! I need to fan my face for a bit!Zoe is more than a little bit awesome! She rocks and owns her sensuality. I love that she doesn't let Walker treat her like a helpless little lady. The way she schooled him in the cafe was priceless.Taft Walker has his moments where he is a total ass. Fortunately, Zoe is fabulous at putting him in his place and showing the error of his ways. They have fabulous banter [...]

    22. I am really starting to wonder why in the hell I haven't heard of some of these authors that I'm reading lately!! Why have I never heard of Joan Swan?!? I'm just not understanding. Great authors should NEVER be kept secret! Who is it I need to be stalking in order to find out about these writers? All this lost time!! I could have been reading her books since last year!! Ugh. So frustrating. Well, at least I've found her now because DAMN. Swan is an amazing writer! This novella had me hooked from [...]

    23. What do you get when you mix Covert Affairs and Sex Toys? One GREAT book!Zoe is a border patrol agent that is excellent at her job. But she's done it for a long time and recently lost her partner and is looking for a change. As she is beginning a meeting about a possible future position Taft shows up. He is in Covert Affairs. He is arrogant and condescending and tries to dismiss Zoe as he thinks his time is more important than hers. She doesn't let him get away with it and puts him in his place. [...]

    24. First Temptation is a novella following after Intimate Enemies of the Covert Affairs series by Joan Swan. I was a bit surprised that there was a novella for this series. Being that I enjoyed Intimate Enemies, I just had to jump at the chance to read this book. Well, I’m glad I didn’t miss it because Ms. Swan wrote another hot and engaging read.Zoe was a Border Patrol Agent who is ready to do some undercover work. Unfortunately, in this line of work, women do not get the same credibility as m [...]

    25. This sexy action packed novella is the story of Zoe and Taft. Pretending to be a couple while working undercover as managers of a sex shop, Zoe and Taft are really after the drug cartel members using a neighboring shop as a front. But while their intense attraction for each other makes their cover look good, is it possible that it will lead them to a real relationship?I loved this story! Joan Swan is very adept at combining an intriguing story line with sexy love scenes and fast paced action. Zo [...]

    26. It's been quite a while since I read the first book in the Covert Affairs series, INTIMATE ENEMIES. In fact it's been almost 2 years!! When an opportunity to read and review the third book presented itself I grabbed it, knowing I'd have this second book to read too first. The chemistry and banter between Zoe and Taft was off the charts from the very first meeting. I really loved how sassy Zoe didn't take crap from Taft. And let's face it: an undercover operation in an adult store? Isn't that the [...]

    27. When Zoe Brooks gets her transfer from working the Border Patrol front lines to working investigations for ICE, her first assignment is working with Counterterrorist agent Taft Walker to put the stop to a new tunnel which will be used to smuggle drugs, weapons, and terrorists into the US from Mexico. Posing undercover as owners of an adult store which is located next door to the cigar shop which is the front for the local cartel, Zoe and Taft are confronted with a mutual attraction that goes dee [...]

    28. This book started out with action and with a woman in charge, so it could only go up from there, but this woman had to deal with the dangers that were in the her field of work, along with the danger of overbearing men who didn't trust her ability At First! Zoe spent her life trying to be something she wasn't. Her father wanted a son, so she was raised to do all the things a boy would do, and became just as tough. This toughness gave her an edge, but also made her vulnerable in some ways. When sh [...]

    29. This is a short 160 page novella and it's packed with action right from the first page. Zoe Brooks is ready for something different and she's put in for a transfer months ago. Finally she gets the call right after a hard night catching baddies on the border which ends up with her pretty banged up and almost killed. When she meets with her possible new boss and the guy she's going to have to work with on her first assignment sparks fly. Not even the good kind. At least not at first. Taft Walker i [...]

    30. A short, entertaining book about a female border patrol agent and an undercover Department of Homeland Security agent. The female agent has spent her whole career trying to prove that a woman can do the job just like a man and spurns any thought of having a long term relationship with a cohort. Then she is assigned her first undercover assignment with a beautiful hunk of a G-man.
