Seduced by Pain
by Kimberly Kinrade
The Seduced Saga (Rose's Story), Book 2
Publisher: Daring Books
Release Date: February 12, 2013
Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance
Their passion will destroy them.
Only true love can save them.
"Hope is a fragile thing, yet strangely enduring. It hides in the crevices of pain, burrowing deep until unseen, for fear that sorrow, in its rage, will devour hope's desperate hold on the heart.
It can live there for years, silent and waiting. Or, it can be slaughtered with a word-- mankind's most powerful weapon.
They say that universes are created with words.
And with words, they are destroyed.
Just as mine has been."
In the sequel to Seduced by Innocence, Derek and Rose face even greater threats to their love as Derek fights to protect the core of his family's power while Rose struggles to control her own dark gift.
Recommended for 17+ due to explicit sexual content. This is a new adult paranormal romance with erotic content and includes shifters, demons and witches.
**Rose's story is a trilogy, not stand alone books. The first two books have cliffhanger endings. Her complete story in one book will be available as "Seduced" when the author finishes writing all three books and they are out. If you do not like cliffhanger endings, please consider waiting to purchase until Seduced the omnibus edition is out.**
Submit to the Seduced Saga as Derek and Rose face their future while unraveling the mysteries of their past.

Beginning shortly after the events which took place at the end of the first book, Seduced by Pain continues the saga of the Romeo and Juliet like romance between a powerful, somewhat out of control witch and the shapeshifter/druid who loves her. A little darker in tone, the stakes are higher now that Rose and Derek have to repair their romance while trying to resolve several power struggles at the same time. Continuing her world building and further developing her characters, Ms. Kinrade easily drew me back into her tale.
At the beginning of this story, Rose finds herself still on the outs with her coven. Having just survived a small battle with her mother, Rose has several issues she must face on her own. She still doesn't understand the extent of her powers, has self esteem issues she needs to resolve and finds herself temporarily separated from Derek, the man she loves.
Heartbroken over his discovery of the part Rose played in his brother Dean's situation, Derek is determined to stand by his family. Refusing to return Rose's calls, Derek knows he still loves her. He just needs to help her figure out how to control her dark powers.
While Rose and Derek are temporarily apart, Ms. Kinrade introduces us to a few new characters. Rose and her best friend Ocean, are determined to discover what's really going on inside the coven and just what Rainbow, Rose's mother, is trying to do. Rose also has to deal with Blake, a person she's never liked, who suddenly isn't behaving he was in the past. Blake's sudden change also attracts the attention of Ocean, who wants to know why he's suddenly acting like a hottie!
Soon Rose and Derek realize they'll have to forget and forgive the mistakes in their past to discover the answers they seek. It's only their love and the hope for a future together that will give them the answers and power they seek.
Will Rose and Derek's love be enough to get them through their problems? Will Rose be able to uncover all of the secrets involving her mother and learn to control her powers? You'll have to read Seduced by Pain to find out. I can't wait to see what happens next.
My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Stars
FTC Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Kimberly Kinrade was born with ink in her veins and magic in her heart. She writes fantasy and paranormal stories for all ages and still believes in magic worlds. Check out her YA paranormal series The Forbidden Trilogy, her lower grade fantasy series The Three Lost Kids, and watch for her New Adult romance and fantasy books coming in 2013 including The Seduced Saga, Sunrise and Nightfall, Death by Destiny and The Fallen Trilogy and her next YA fantasy adventure, The Reluctant Familiar. You can find her books on Amazon, B&N and Goodreads among other fine retailers.
When she's not writing, she runs Daring Books Design & Marketing with her husband, Dmytry Karpov, where they help authors with all manner of marketing, editing, and design needs until such a time that their brilliant children take over the business for them.
She lives with her three little girls who think they're ninja princesses with super powers, her two cats who think they're gods (and probably are), her two dogs who think they're humans and her husband, also known as the sexy Russian Prince, who is the love of her life and writing partner.
