Review: Seduced Trilogy - Rose's Story by Kimberly Kinrade

Hello, Therians!

I recently had the pleasure of reading Kimberly Kinrade's Seduced Trilogy, Rose's Story, and WOW did I love it!! Kimberly Kinrade has fast become one of my favorite authors. 

From Kiss Me In Paris to The Forbidden Trilogy, I cannot get enough of her fabulous books! 

If you haven't read any of her work, do yourself a favor and get reading!!

Forbidden passions.

Deadly secrets.

A love that will stand against it all.

Rose and Derek come from different worlds. Different families. Different destinies. But nothing can stop two souls meant to be together.

Faced with supernatural threats beyond their control, and a power that could destroy everyone they care about, Rose and Derek hold onto their love.

But is love enough when the greatest threat lives inside of you?

***Recommended for 17+ due to explicit sexual content. This is a new adult paranormal romance with erotic content and includes shifters, demons and witches.***


This was an amazing Romeo & Juliet type, star-crossed lovers story that showed just how strong the bond of love is and how much it can endure.

What I thought was going to be another typical YA PNR read soon turned into a very sexy romance when Rose and Derek set the pages alight with their sensual and very steamy game of look but don't touch. It was enough to send me off to have a cold shower, or rather to find a very sexy shifter and a cabin with a hot tub!! I loved the sexual tension that oozed between these two characters. The heat between them sparked right off the bat and never fizzled out. It was explosive throughout and reached new heights when pain became pleasure.

I was enthralled by this story from start to finish. I wanted to scream when my eReader's battery died and I had to wait a few hours before I could go back to devouring the pages. This story is filled with mystery and so many wonderful and creepy characters - from Rose's amazing bestie to her weird, crazy mother - there was never a dull moment.

I was immediately suspicious about the attacks on the coven. For some reason I just had this feeling that Rose's mother couldn't be trusted and as the story unraveled, the more uneasy I became. I had to wonder if the O'Connors were hiding something though. They all seemed pretty great and I didn't believe that they were as terrible as the coven made them out to be, but I still kept a close eye on them. I loved that secrets were revealed slowly, giving the reader just enough information to formulate their own ideas, while still keeping them guessing.

As the story developed the darker it became. I was quite shocked at the lengths Rainbow went to, to gain power. She was despicable, selfish and greedy. My heart broke for Blake, the demon not the man. I wanted to dislike him but he showed so much emotion, that I couldn't help caring for him. He was on a mission but his love and loyalty made him think twice about what he was doing. He was torn between duty and love. If only things could have turned out differently for him. In the end the purity or his evil soul shone through.

Deceit, betrayal, loyalty, bravery, love and acceptance, this book has it all. Kinrade is a masterful storyteller. I really loved the Shakespeare references and how they tied into the chapter headings. It was a wonderful touch. I also loved that this trilogy ties in with The Forbidden Trilogy, bringing back some of my favorite characters.

This story will capture your imagination and, like the all-consuming love shared between Rose and Derek, once you've had a taste of it, you'll keep coming back for more.

Favorite quote (One of them at least!!)

"We make the choices that are right for us. Sometimes, they aren't our first choices, because those have been taken from us, or perhaps, because they were never there to begin with, but they're the best we have. We try for better, but sometimes better is just a fleeting shadow, and it belongs to someone else." 
~ Blake, Seduced by Pain.

This special omnibus set 
includes all three novels from 
Rose's Trilogy

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, needing to feel his flesh against mine, 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.

"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.

In Seduced by Power, the final book in Rose's Trilogy, Rose and Derek face the greatest threat to their love, and lives, as they are forced to make painful choices to save those they love the most.

They give everything they have to end the battle against Rose's mother and retrieve that which was stolen from them. But will it be enough to save them?
