Tour: Seduced by Innocence

Title: Seduced by Innocence
Author: Kimberly Kinrade
Release Date: Jan 2013
Seduction comes in many forms. 

"Liquid fire poured into me, filling me with the intimate sense of him as he leaned in to claim my lips with his own. I reached for him, needing him closer, but my arms couldn't close the distance between us, which grew wider with each hitched breath. So close to finally feeling something real, something carnal and deep, I cried out in frustration, dropping my hands as he disappeared. My cries deepened into a frenzy of panic and my eyes flew open. I clutched my blanket and stilled myself to calm my racing heart.

Just a dream. Always just a dream."

Rose Wintersong didn't have an ordinary upbringing. Raised in what most would call a hippy commune, but what is actually a powerful coven of witches, she never questions the life fate chose for her.

Until she meets Derek O'Conner.

Derek challenges everything Rose believes and forces her to see the secrets hidden beneath the whitewashed walls of her idyllic country life.

Rose knows she should walk away, that the sexy martial arts instructor is bad news bred to create discord in her tight community… but the animal magnetism between them is impossible to fight.

Caught between the passion of first love, and the steady beat of the life she's always known, Rose must choose between the innocence of her youth or the pleasures of womanhood—but lost innocence comes at a price, and Rose harbors a dark secret that could destroy everyone she loves—including Derek. 

Submit to the Seduced Saga as Derek and Rose face their future while unraveling the mysteries of their past.

I have loved every book I have read by Kimberly Kinrade and Seduced by Innocence was no different.  This a classic Romeo and Juliet story with a huge paranormal twist.  Each chapter starts with a verse from Romeo and Juliet which I truly loved because the quotes really set each and every scene.  It was delightful!
Rose is a witch who has a very dark power.  She is a sweet girl but because of her dark gift she has been an outcast in her own coven her entire life.  She wants to experience the greatest pleasures in life without fear of herself. 
Derek is a super sexy martial arts teacher who just so happens to be a Druid/Shifter.  He doesn't want his families power and money to define him.  He is determined to live his life on the road and never look back but when tragedy strikes his family he finds his way home. 
Rose and Derek are thrown together by none other than fate herself.  There love is intoxicating and there challenges are bittersweet.  Their families hate each other but they have no clue who each other is. 
Kimberly Kinrade writing is intense.  She has mastered the art of suspense in a romantic coming of age story.
This book has one hell of a cliffhanger so be ready for book two!
 Look for these books in 2013.
