Eve Dowling left Thibodaux Hospital and never looked back. She didn’t want to look back… ever. She and her son Philip moved into the west wing of the Gregiore Estate mansion with husband-to-be, Beau Le Masters and, by all appearances, they were already the perfect, happy family.
Was Eve’s life a dream? Some days were harder than others when she could not shake the shadowy fear that seeped into her sleep and turned her dreams into nightmares. Nightmares of being ravaged by an exotic creature that she comes to believe is a Nephilim. The horrors were different from night to night and yet they were the same: broken images, flashes of events, people, places, pieces of a broken puzzle that didn’t fit together.
An emotional story of love threatened by creatures first described in ancient texts as the Nephilim or “fallen Sons of God.” Could Beau Le Masters himself actually be a Nephilim? Will Eve have the strength to vanquish the evil that surrounds her and her son, Philip? Will true love be able to conquer pure evil? Can she resist the Nephilim? All is revealed in The Tempting!
A TEMPTING Interview with Author D.M. Pratt
Who is D.M. Pratt and when did the dream of being a writer begin?
D.M.: I am a story teller. I have always been a story teller. When I was very young, I would retell my dreams from the night before to my friends when we came out to play. And those rather fantastic dreams were always embellished stories by the end of the day. I started writing poetry at about 13 when I was moved by an event or a person and found it was the only way to express my feelings.
I picked up the guitar at 18 and my poems became songs. I loved performing in front of live audiences. So naturally, I became an actress and loved the exploration of self that comes with building characters.
