Review: My Forbidden Desire by Carolyn Jewel


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.

I really enjoyed this book. I liked the main characters and I think they fit well together. The characters were very well written, the action was intense and the conflict between the main characters could start a forest fire. I certainly hope there are more novels set in this world and since I haven't read My Wicked Enemy I am going to pick it up soon. . It is the second in this series, but I was able to jump right in and there were no hard to understand parts that sometimes happen when you read a book out of sequence. This story was very exciting and on par with some of the best that paranormal has to offer

What I liked about My Forbidden Desire:

1. Lots of intense action

2. Sexual tension and some sex but not so much that it obscures the story

3. Well written characters and plot

4. Intriguing world of blood twins, magehelds, witches, mages and fiends

5. Left me wanting more

I rate My Forbidden Desire 5 stars
