Tempted (Dark Protectors, #2.5) - Rebecca Zanetti
This was a little different from the rest of the series, because one Max is the leading guy and two the Kurjans are using a gifted female and not kidnaping her right away. I actually liked meeting more of Max past and discovering his fears. He's like a brother to Kayrs and was raised by them after being rescue from his insane father.

Sarah was just a teacher and now she has to escape a hospital because her brother wanted her commited as crazy to steal her company. I liked her and she was a nice girl, but her scenes with Max were crazy hot.
