#IOBookTour - SEDUCED BY INNOCENCE by Kimberly Kinrade

Howdy, all! I'm thrilled to offer you a review of Kimberly Kinrade's SEDUCED BY INNOCENCE. I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review on a book tour.

Okay, disclaimers out of the way, let's get to the good stuff--the book!
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. 
I very much enjoyed this charming look at first love and passion in this paranormal romance. Rose is a young witch who lives alone though in the shelter of a coven. Derek--a wolf shifter and druid--is trying to escape the expectations of his family. I love that Rose and Derek's plights parallel each other and is ultimately what drraws them together. And when they are drawn together...oh boy!

Passionate, sensual and full of delicious exploration and tension, I thought Ms. Kinrade did a wonderful job with the attraction between our hero and heroine. Both characters grow and change throughout the book making for a well-rounded read. My favorite part of the book are the twists at the end which left me dying to read the sequel, SEDUCED BY PAIN. My praise to Ms. Kinrade and I recommend fans of this genre pick up the series. From what I've seen so far, you won't be able to put it down ;)
