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.
Forbidden passions. Deadly Secrets. A love that will stand against it all. Submit to the Seduced Saga as Derek and Rose face their future while unraveling the mysteries of their past.
Whew!! Talk about a hot one!
It’s relatively short at only 232 pages but this is packed with seduction and oozes sexiness! First of all, Derek, man! The description of Derek makes me want to fall in love or jump him, or both! So I can understand Rose’s need to be close to him. Especially since, seriously, this gal has some issues!
Rose is an interesting character with a very interesting secret. Sadly she kills people but not on purpose. She has a power that she cannot control and that has affected her entire life. As I am sure you can imagine. Derek has some issues of his own. He comes from a wealthy family but he doesn’t want to be seen as the wealthy son. He wants to make it on his own.
Oh, and of course they are star crossed lovers. Their love is forged through two enemies. Sadly, they two of them do not know it yet!
There is so much to the plot of this story, and to Derek and Rose getting to know each other. I could not put it down. I loved every word! Although I think Rose puts herself into some horrible situations. I understand the how and why of it and it is easy to judge from the outside, but she doesn’t always make the best choices. I can say the same for Derek too. They are really just trying to figure out who they are so I’m giving them a pass at the idiocy of some of their choices.
Especially since, when these two meet, sparks fly! It gets hot and passionate!
In short: I am really looking forward to the next in the series. This ends on a cliff hanger and there is no telling where Derek and Rose will find themselves next!
