Jacquelyn Frank-- "Pleasure"

Shadowdwellers series
Discipline. Penance. Order. A Sanctuary priests life revolves around such things. But then Sagan is taken captive and thrust into the Alaskan Wilderness, he encounters a woman who challenges his faith and his self-control. Valera is a natural born witch who almost lost herself to the lure of dark magic. By rights, Sagan should shun her, but convention will count for nothing in the face of a passion that could change the world of the Shadowdwellers forever....
As Chancellor of the Shadowdwellers, Malaya's first duty is to her people. Her bodyguard, Guin, knows this only too well. For tradition's sake, Malaya must marry, and the thought of this lush vibrant woman in a loveless union is impossible for him to bear. Guin loves Malaya--not as a subject loves his queen but as a man craves a woman. And even if he cannot keep her, he'll show her everything she stands to lose....

***(spoiler alert)This is the 3rd book in the series and i like all 3 equally. And it may be the last since the villain Acadian has been caught and murdered in this book. But sometimes i think having a series that has only a few books is far better than a series that goes on and on without changing the premise but only changes the names. If you have never read Jacquelyn Frank, be prepared, she is vivid in her detailed descriptions about what happens in the bedroom (and the living room, the bathroom, the hallway, wherever) if you get my meaning. But the murder/suspense/love story factor is also a strong part to her stories.
