Ascending Hearts: 2 (Tempting Tales)

Ascending Hearts - Keira Andrews, Leta Blake I really enjoyed this latest Tempting Tales offering. Jack and Rion were great characters, two very different, nuanced men, each in his own way trapped in his circumstances. As with the first Tempting Tales book, [b:Earthly Desires|15712132|Earthly Desires (Tempting Tales, #1)|Leta Blake|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1340071974s/15712132.jpg|21379428], I think what I found most compelling was the history behind the story. Leta and Keira have a way of exploring how the characters became who they are and how their circumstances evolved that is just endlessly fascinating to me. They also construct one situation which I always find very heart-rending, which is where the characters find themselves at an impasse where they desperately WANT to be together, but simply can't.

My only complaint is that at about 9% of the way through the book, there is one paragraph that I suspect the wording of which is pretty important, because (I suspect) it's a carefully constructed bit of double-speak that traps Jack into a certain situation, but somehow it came out as complete gibberish. This is no fault of the authors or the writing; Ellora's Cave (the publisher) needs to be more careful about their formatting and editing.

Apparently this was only a problem with the .prc version and EC is aware of it and has fixed it.
