My Forbidden Desire

My Series bk 2

Carolyn Jewel

I was handed this book at RomCon and told that I had to read it. It took me a while to get to it, but I finally got the tbr pile down to this book and I am now wishing that it had been higher in my pile.

From the moment I started reading this book I couldn’t put it down. The world and characters that Ms. Jewel has created with this series is one of best paranormal worlds that I have ever read. She has created a world that exists within the normal world, and blended them very well. This book has it all, sexual chemistry, action, snarky comments and bad ass male characters.

Torn Between. . .

Alexandrine Marit is a witch in mortal danager. An evil mage craves the powerful, mysterious talisman that supplies her magic, and the only person who can keep her alive is a dark and dangerous fiend called Xia. With his fierce animosity toward witches, he’s hardly the ideal bodyguard. Yet as days turn into nights, she can’t deny the white-hot passion between them.

Desire and Temptation . . .

Xia hates witches. They enslave and mercilessly kill his kind. But he’s been ordered to protect Alexandrine, who, to his surprise, has a spirit he admires and a body he longs to possess. With the mage and his henchmen closing in, Alexandrine and her protector must trust the passion that can unite them . . . or risk losing everything to the enemies who can destroy them both.

When we first meet Alexandrine she is watching the brother that she has thought was dead for 10 years pace in her living room. What she never expected was that with the return of her brother her life would change dramatically.

Xia is one bad a** mother. If you don’t believe me just ask him. He has a hard on for all things witch and not in a good. He can’t figure out why he likes Alexandrine so much. It sure isn’t because she is a witch.

The action of this book takes place over a short time period but I loved it. It was intense and snarky and just all around great. The chemistry between these two was awesome. The antagonism between them was great. Okay the whole book was just plan great. I am now on the hunt to find the first book in this series and also to wait till the next book comes out.

Grade A.

Now comes the fun part. I have an extra copy of this book and one lucky commenter will win this book. All you have to do is a leave a comment telling us what you like most about paranormal romances.

    I love everything about witches, really wished I was one myself. It sounds like a great read. I like the storylines when they don’t like each other at first.
    I believe I have some older historical romances by this author on my shelves.


  2. Johanna Jochum

    This book sounds pretty good! I love reading paranormal romances because I like getting caught up in the fatastyof them or forbidden love. Witches, vamps, shifters are pretty forbidden. It’s sexy and fun way to escape.

  3. Maureen

    I like the being taken to another place and time where anything is possible.

  4. Kim Miller

    Sounds interesting, I wouldn’t mind reading it!

    This is one of those series that will not disappoint. You will all love it.

    I started reading PNR exactly a year ago. I think I was tired of the repetitive formulas I kept seeing in contemporary and historical romances. There’s an added flair when those supernatural and fantasy elements are added into the mix. I like the wonderful world building and various plot possibilities that PNR brings to the plate.
