Nana Prah & Cathrina Constantine have reviewed this month Seduced By Innocence by Kimberly Kinrade.
This was my month to pick a novel, and it was a quick read. Kimberly Kinrade is a wonderful writer.
The story held my interest since I'm a sucker for the strange and unknown. A coven that battles against rich and powerful shapeshifters can be thrilling.
The rich, bad boy shapeshifter, Derek, is extremely hot, especially when he transforms into an ominous wolf. Derek is immediately seduced by Rose's innocence leading him into uncanny trouble. The scintillating love sequences curled my hair, yet different, since the too innocent Rose, (a witch) harbors a power that could kill while mating. Derek has yet to discover this tidbit from Rose, though, he agrees with her decision to take it slow. She might be innocent, but you wouldn't know it by some of these passages. There happens to be bad blood between the coven and the shapeshifters, and neither Rose or Derek realize...oops...I don't like to post spoilers. But there is underlying intrigue. I am curious about what is going to happen between Rose and Derek, although, still pondering on whether to read the sequel. Perhaps you'll feel differently after you read Seduced by Innocence.
Now let's head over to Nana Prah's blog for her review.
Seduced by Innocence Blurb:
All my life I've been told that I will kill my first love. That the dark power I harbor within myself will destroy him.
Just like it's destroyed others.
Witches take an oath to do no harm, but I broke that oath even as a child, and so I hide within the invisible walls of my strange coven, keeping everyone at a distance.
Until I meet Derek.
His magnetism draws me in even as I know I should run. But I can't run, because I need him to teach me how to defend myself and others, so I don't fall victim to the shifters out to terrorize my coven.
He can't know my secret, and I can't give in to the other need that's growing between us, the one that heats me from within whenever we're together.
But flesh is weaker than intention, and neither of us can fight the fates. If only we'd known the truth before taking that first bite of forbidden fruit.
Now it's too late.

I love the cover for this book. I have a pretty heavy reading list but it is certainly a book I will be taking a look at in more detail, once I am through my current, to read pile.ReplyDelete
Me too! Thanks for stopping by Joss.Delete
I do love the way you are able to summarize a book so concisely, Cathy. I bought the complete series and can't wait to read to read it. I'm glad I wasn't the only one who thought Rose's sexual innocence wasn't so innocent.ReplyDelete
