To find temptation, we must lay our own path.
For the last ten years, I thought I was nothing special. I was just another priestess in the Temple of Temptation…one of many. Little did I know that my god has plans for me. He intends to make me powerful.
But what I will become is up to me.
For centuries, things here have always been done the same way–and the gods are now paying for it. Somehow, I’m expected to revive the faith. I’m their last hope, but no one is quite sure how I’m supposed to do that.
That means I’m making this up as I go. My god is begging me to become something new. My temple wants me to respect traditions. My instructors want to force me to follow their rules.
I just want to save my god.
With my three men, I know I’ll figure it out. That is not the same as this being easy, though. Even worse, being "special" makes those around me jealous, and giving in to temptation is a part of our nature. When my guardian’s family gets involved, things get infinitely more complicated.
The temple wants to break me. My success or failure depends on the path I choose. I just hope I find the right one.
The Path of Temptation series features a strong woman and the men who love her. It’s intended for a mature audience due to graphic language, adult situations, and potentially triggering violence including discussions of rape and assult.

A student of Meisner method acting and obsessed with books, film, music, and art, Aaron came to the world of audiobooks not only as a gifted actor, but as an avid fan, chasing after his favorite narrators’ latest work with voracious enthusiasm. In addition to narrating over 300 audiobooks under various names, Aaron can be been heard in podcasts, radio dramas, animations, video games, commercials, and infomercials all around the world. Known for his deep voice, dynamic versatility, extensive use of dialects and accents, and submersing himself fully into his characters and stories, he brings a wonderfully unique, emotional, and engaging experience to his listeners. He’s a fan favorite across multiple genres and can often be found interacting and enjoying their company as a prominent streamer in the Twitch community, playing music, sipping great coffee, or just rolling around on the floor with his pups.
