Goodreads synopsis: 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.
My review: I'd like to thank the author and Innovative Book Tours for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
This book was a nice paranormal version of Romeo and Juliet. The Witches versus the Druids, instead of the Montagues versus the Capulets. I felt for Rose the entire time, from her gift, to her horrible mother, even to the commune she lived in. The entire book was so well-paced and well-written that I just couldn't put it down. I finished it in one afternoon.
Fortunately, neither Derek nor Rose had to die, but there was a nice little final battle at the end. I can't wait for the next book!
