Seduced by Pain by Kimberly Kinrade – Review/Giveaway


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 the core of his family’s power while Rose struggles to control her own dark gift.



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


**Rose’s story is a trilogy, not stand alone books. The first two books have cliffhanger endings. Her complete story in one book will be available as “Seduced” when the author finishes writing all three books and they are out. If you do not like cliffhanger endings, please consider waiting to purchase until Seduced the omnibus edition is out.**

I’m wrung out…tired…emotionally wrecked…totally in love with this series.  There is so much going on so I’ll only hit the highlights.

The quotes at the beginning of the chapters are great.  The tell their own story within the story.  I’m sure this reference has been said…there are a lot of elements that mirror the dramas of Shakespeare.  Two families; star crossed lovers; great supporting characters and a villain that is just too evil.  And I thought I had issues with my own mother.  Good lord…I don’t slapping her would do any good.  She might actually enjoy it.

Rose’s friend Ocean is O.M.G. excellent.  In fact, in all of my readings, Ocean is the perfect side kick, friend, support system that I’ve gotten to know.  Not overpowering, just the right amount of support that our poor Rose needs.

Rose’s mother needs to be put out of her misery NOW!!!  I never knew someone could write a character so twisted, so evil, so truly despicable that I’m in awe of Ms. Kincade.  Truly masterful.

The romance between Rose and Derek is erotic, heartbreaking and I’ve never known two people more in love than these two.  I cheered for them, cried for them and pray that everything works out for them in the last book.  With everything that they have endured, they deserve some happiness.

I so CAN NOT wait for the conclusion of one of the best paranormal series that I’ve read.  Oh and I can’t forget… witches!  I love witches!
