Seduced by Innocence (Book 1)

INNOCENCE-3DRose Wintersong will kill her first love--just as she's killed others. That is the dark prophecy that has guided her path for years. So she stays hidden with her coven of witches, raised a recluse by her despotic mother, hiding herself, and her powers, from the world.

Until she meets Derek, the sexy martial arts instructor who teaches her more than self-defense.

Derek O'Conner was born into wealth and power as a Druid Shifter whose family protects the wellspring of magic that has made them who they are. But he doesn't want that responsibility and is on the run from his own destiny when he meets Rose, a shy beauty who doesn't know her own inner strength.

Neither of them realize they are from opposing families at war, or that their love could destroy everything.

Until it's too late.

Forbidden passions. Deadly secrets. A love that will stand against it all.

 Available exclusively on Amazon (and free through KindleUnlimited!) 


Seduced by Pain (Book 2)

There's a fine line between pain and pleasure, and it's so very easy to cross.

As Rose Wintersong awakens to her own sexual nature, the darkness growing inside her threatens to consume the man she loves. Each touch puts his very soul at risk. But she thinks she's found a way to control it. Pain.

Derek O'Conner has always exercised control over his own powers, but being with Rose unleashes the beast within and challenges him to embrace his own wild magic. When they embark on a sexual path that leads them down a deadly road of pain and pleasure, Derek finds he is unable to stay away from the woman whose family has tried to destroy his.

But one night, one touch, could destroy them both and give Rose's family what they need to end the O'Conner shifter line forever.

Available exclusively on Amazon (and free through KindleUnlimited!) 


Seduced by Power (Book 3)

Rose Wintersong thought she could control the dark power she was born with.

She was wrong.

Now, the man she loves is trapped in a hell dimension and she will risk everything to save him. But what awaits her in hell is more than she imagined, as deadly secrets from her past come forth to claim her.

Caught between love and duty, between the past and the future, Rose must find the strength to become something more. Her metamorphosis is the only way to save her lover and his clan of Druid Shifters--and the only way to stop an unbeatable new evil from being unleashed into the world.

Available exclusively on Amazon (and free through KindleUnlimited!)


Seduced by Lies (Book 4)

Everyone has secrets. Some secrets are more deadly than others.

Rose Wintersong and her friends have gone through hell and back to protect those they love. Now that life in their lush forest safehouse has returned to normal, she thinks the worst is over.

She's wrong.

A new evil is brewing in the darkness, something that threatens everyone she loves, including her new husband and his pack of shifters. When one of their best friends is nearly killed by a beast that hunts like a wolf, Rose and Derek embark on a journey to Rome to see his attacker avenged.

But secrets have a way of poisoning those we love the most. A truth Rose finds out the hard way.

Seduced by Darkness (Book 5) 

Drake Davis has had and lost more para-powers than most people could ever dream of.

He'll do anything to protect his wife and child from whatever darkness is hunting them... but can he protect them from the new darkness growing within?

I just wanted to share with you my thoughts on this series!


When I first agreed to review this series I had no idea what to expect. I had never read any Karpov Kinrade books before this, and was going on pure instinct.  I'm so glad that I decided to read these books.

The story that Mrs. Karpov Kinrade told was definitely a unique one. I will warm though,  you must read the previous four novels. If you don't, nothing will make sense. 

These stories are fast and interesting reads. Once you pick them up you won't want to put them down. I read though all five novels within a span of two days days.They are that attention grabbing.  This review is going to be a little different as in the sense, as in all the books together sort of make one book.

These stories are also told through multiple POV's, which is something that I love in books. Now don't get me wrong, I love books that are single POV's, but I also love getting in the heads of some of the other characters as well.

Book one starts out with you meeting our main lady Rose, a witch living with her coven. Some of the witches in her coven have been blessed with certain gifts. Like her best friend Ocean, she can control water, and her mother can read/ control other people's mind. But Rose has always felt sort of out of place. Her gift is not one that is common among witches. She can't have skin to skin contact with anyone with out the fear of taking the life out of them. Or so she thinks that's what happens. The people who touch her in any way usually  just become vegetables. She has no name for her gift, except that it has made her afraid to interact with anyone.  Except for her friends and family. Even memebers of her coven are afraid of her.

It isn't until one night when her coven gets attacked that she feels the need to be able to protect herself.  Without using her powers.  So her and Ocean  decide to sneak away from the coven and take self defense classes.

This is where she meets the very handsome shape shifter Derek, who is home because something has happened with his brother. However, neither one knows about the other's supernatural abilities.  But from the minute these two meet, their lives are turned upside. People are not who they think they are, loyalties are tested, and nothing is as it seems.

Their journey goes through all five books, I can't go into much detail without giving too much away. Since all five  books are connected and linked together. They follow who they meet, their problems with good fighting evil. As well as them growing into their powers and abilities.

I liked the story and the concept behind these books. I thought that they grabbed your attention from page one. It did get a little confusing at times, when certain plot lines got interwoven. However, it was easy to get back on track. The relationships between these characters reminded me of the X-men. It was like they all became all family unit.

I enjoyed all of the twists and turns, you never knew what was going to happen. Or if you thought you knew, it was never what you thought.  And my favorite parts were all the cool magical and paranormal elements that were part of this story. The attention to detail, was awesome. Having the characters so in touch with nature and the elements was one of my favorite aspects of these books.
I encourage you guys to go and check them out! :)
