Overview

Rose Wintersong will kill her first love-just as she's killed others. That is the dark prophecy that has guided her path for years. So she stays hidden with her coven of witches, raised a recluse by her despotic mother, hiding herself, and her powers, from the world.

Until she meets Derek, the sexy martial arts instructor who teaches her more than self-defense.

Derek O'Conner was born into wealth and power as a Druid Shifter whose family protects the wellspring of magic that has made them who they are. But he doesn't want that responsibility and is on the run from his own destiny when he meets Rose, a shy beauty who doesn't know her own inner strength.

Neither of them realize they are from opposing families at war, or that their love could destroy everything.

Until it's too late.

Forbidden passions.
Deadly secrets.
A love that will stand against it all.

    A modern-day Romeo & Juliet story, with the two "houses

    A modern-day Romeo & Juliet story, with the two "houses" being shape shifters and witches.  The story was well-told, but the romance was overly erotic, fast paced and highly unlikely for a home-schooled 19 year old witch who has never had a relationship before.  The book ends rather abruptly, and is presumably continued in the next, but I won't be bothering to find out.

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book




    All I can say about this book is OMG! I just don’t know what to say, I just started reading it and I was left speechless.




    I felt so sorry for Rose. I really wanted her to find true love and to be able to figure out at way to use her magic. With the parents that she has I just don’t believe they are there to help her. Well maybe for the bad and not the good. She has been through so much in her life. I am glad that she has Ocean by her side.




    Derek is running away from his father. He just wants to make it on his own and I can understand that. Who wants to get things just because of the last name he has? I had more faith in him because he wanted to make it on his own. He only comes back home to find out what happened to his brother.




    I enjoyed reading about Rose and Derek; they are just meant to be together. You just don’t know if they will be able to get over who their family is. I just got so into this story and I was mad when I reached the end. Just when it was really getting good and you thought you would start uncovering more secrets. Now I will have to wait until I get the next movie to see what will happen next.




    I love experiencing young love and I know that you can’t have everything easy. You have to have struggles so that you can appreciate what you have when you get it. It just makes me wish that we could make it easy every once in awhile. I enjoyed this book and was glad that I decided to read it. It was a little different but in a good way.




    I say take the chance and read this book because you will be missing a great story if you don’t.

    Pretty good

    I liked this story, it was fast paced but rather overly erotic, there is no way a virgin who has never given a bj could deep throat the first time attempting to give oral pleasure with out gagging. But other than that and a few other erotic scenes it was a good read

    Poor taste strategy by author- first book free; 2 are cliff hang

    Poor taste strategy by author- first book free; 2 are cliff hangers and you can only purchase as a bundle so in essence you are paying for all three. Books, even if in a series should stand alone (beginning, climax, end).They should not end abruptly and should not be so short. Since ebooks, that is no longer the case. Anybody can publish a so-called "book". B&N should put guidelines in place. That said, this author is off my list even if the plot is a good one. We have to start somewhere letting writers know what is unacceptable.

    surprisingly wonderful!

    Started out reading only 50Shades books. The cover looked intriguing, so I tried it and loved it so much that I had to buy the rest of the trilogy.

    After reading the blurb I figured I would give this book a try.

    After reading the blurb I figured I would give this book a try. It seemed like it would be really good.
    But I felt as though somethings were left unexplained and I can only hope that maybe in the other books everything starts coming together and we can get the answers to questions that are there.
    This is a story about witches, druids and werewolves. I know, I know the normal type of paranormal. But there is a past it seems between the witches and wolves and it is one that we don't really understand why they have a past because we never get an answer to it. Not only that Rose has a dark power that we never get any explanation or semi explanation as to why she has it. I wanted to know more about it all. 
    There are different P.O.V.'s through out the book and you can tell which one is telling us the story. 
    We have two families who are fighting just like Romeo and Juliet (the author opens up each chapter with a quote from Shakespeare) but I don't know if we will be getting the end like the two star cross lovers did as it ended with a cliff hanger only reading more will tell.

    On to the characters.
    So Rose she is this girl who has a dark power she doesn't truly like to use and heck I don't blame her. She isn't very rebellious and even though she questions her mother and sometimes doesn't agree with her decisions she never truly gets into her face questioning. top it off she is a virgin which is not a bad thing at all. Not only that she meets this guy named Derek, and they kind of hit it off. But then they started messing around sexual or at least as far as Rose wants to because she doesn't want to hurt him and that I can understand. Throw in there that she is a virgin who ends up turning into enjoy the whole sexual thing a bit too much was a whoa moment for me. But it seemed their jumping into the sex scene together was pretty quick and it didn't seem to be like the Rose I first started reading about. Of course we see Rose struggle with wanting to tell Derek her secret to wanting to keep quiet. 

    Ocean, I have to say I really like her. Not only because of her name, but because she is the live life type. She is Rose's best friend and tries to get Rose to open up a whole lot more. There isn't much of Ocean within the story but enough to where you can remember who she is.

    Derek, is the guy who is on the road and only comes home when his family needs him. He planned on staying just for a while but then Rose gets into his system. And he has to decide what he wants to do. He is a guy in love and you can tell by the gestures that he gives Rose. He also has a secret that he wants to tell Rose. It seems to be a lot of darn secrets that these two are harboring.

     Rose's mother. There is just something about her and we get just enough of her in the book that we can all tell the woman is evil. She seems to be just for the coven and not her daughter, and she truly seems to harbor hate for the wolves that end up attacking them. But of course this was never truly brought up and I can only hope that later on we get an answer as to why.

    Of course we have a few characters who are minor but end up playing some type of role but we don't get enough of them to truly understand them. 

    Overall a decent story and I would be getting book two and three when I can. Just know there is a major cliffhanger so if you do not like them make sure you get all the books first so you can read one right after another. Also I highly suggest that these books be read by 18 plus because of some sexual contend that is written within the story.
