My Forbidden Desire Blog Tour and Giveaway!

June 28th, 2009 by dsuzuki

Thanks to Anna at Hachette Book Group for organizing this tour and providing 5 copies to giveaway!

Description: Alexandrine Marit is a witch in mortal danger. An evil mage craves the powerful, mysterious talisman that supplies her magic, and the only person who can keep her safe 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.

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.

This is actually the second book in a series but I found it fine to just jump in although by the end of the book you will probably want to go back and check out Jewel’s other book in the series, My Wicked Enemy.  Alexandrine was the perfect mix of vulnerability and ability to kick some butt.  I really enjoyed her story although sometimes you do really want to strangle Xia and some of the other demons butts over their pig headed hatred of mages and witches as a whole.  I get that there are evil ones out there killing and enslaving demons but really that is like saying all demons are horrible (although maybe they would agree?).  Either way the chemistry between Alexandrine and Xia is smoking!  For those that love paranormal romances this is one to check out.
