Synopsis: 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 his family's source of power, Rose struggles to control her own.
My Review: I'd like to thank Innovative Online Book Tours and the author for providing me a copy of this book to review for the tour.
I loved reading the first book of this trilogy, and the Shakespearean quotes at the beginning of each chapter really set the tone. During the first book, they were all quotes from Romeo and Juliet, now they are all from A Midsummer Night's Dream. In the first book, we got a glimpse of how evil Rose's mother truly is, now we get a further glimpse of how much love can destroy a person. Truly gives more meaning to the William Congreve quote, "Heav'n has no rage like love to hatred turn'd/ nor hell a fury, like a woman scorned."
As Rose and Derek's love and relationship progresses all the usual ways, including the miscommunication, there are slightly more wicked twists to the plot.
I can't wait to see how it all pans out in the end. Will Rose get to meet her father?
