Review: Circle of Desire - Keri Arthur

In ten years of working for the Damask Circle, shapeshifter Katherine Tanner has never come across anything that goes after kids the way this monster does.  It's not something she wants to confront, but with the Circle's resources stretched to the limit, she's given very little choice.  And the last thing she needs is interference from a cop who has no idea what he's up against.

Ethan Morgan's niece is missing and he's determined to bring her back alive, even if he has to break every law in the land to do it.  He will use anyone to achieve his aims - even a woman who claims to be a witch.  Yet time is ticking away and the monster rarely keeps victims alive for more than seven days, and four of those days have already passed.

Kat and her grandmother have been working for the Damask Circle for 10 years but this is their hardest case yet.  Children have been disappearing, with their bodies turning up within a week showing that they have been brutally murdered.  With their psychic abilities Kat & her grandmother are working with the police trying to track down the killer and rescue the children who are still missing.  Ethan is a police officer but since his niece was kidnapped he has been removed from the case - that isn't going to stop him from doing everything he can to find her though and he quickly realises that Kat is going to be the key to help him.  As a werewolf Ethan has abilities that can help Kat much more than the police can so they need to work together if they are going to stop the murderer before any more children go missing or end up dead.

Circle of Desire is the last book in the Damask Circle trilogy by Keri Arthur but as the series each revolve around a different set of characters and there is no continuation of the story it is easy to read the books out of order or as stand alone stories.  I've enjoyed and would recommend all 3 books in the series though this was probably my favorite of them all.

I really liked both Kat and her grandmother, the relationship between them was really nice to see and they obviously cared for each other deeply.  Kat's grandmother had me laughing out loud in several places with her open attitude to sex and the way she was so upfront about Kat and Ethan's growing relationship.  Kat was a strong character, her abilities really take it out of her but she was very strong and determined to stand on her own two feet.  Ethan was one hot werewolf and if you've ever read Keri Arthur's Riley Jenson series then you'll know all about wolves and their natural appetites as the full moon draws nearer!  Because he was hurt in the past Ethan is very reluctant to face up to the feelings he starts to develop for Kat but will he admit how he feels before he loses her forever?

As I've come to expect from Keri Arthur Circle of Desire was an enjoyable paranormal romance with great chemistry between the main characters, plenty of action and a strong plot line.  I'd happily recommend this series to paranormal romance and urban fantasy fans.
