Liquid fire poured into me, filling me with the intimate sense of him as he leaned in to claim my lips with his own. I reached for him, needing him closer, needing to feel his flesh against mine, but my arms couldn’t close the distance between us, which grew wider with each hitched breath. So close to finally feeling something real, something carnal and deep, I cried out in frustration, dropping my hands as he disappeared. My cries deepened into a frenzy of panic and my eyes flew open. I clutched my blanket and stilled myself to calm my racing heart.

Just a dream. Always just a dream.


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.


Review: All I can say about this book is OMG! I just don’t know what to say, I just started reading it and I was left speechless.

I felt so sorry for Rose. I really wanted her to find true love and to be able to figure out at way to use her magic. With the parents that she has I just don’t believe they are there to help her. Well maybe for the bad and not the good. She has been through so much in her life. I am glad that she has Ocean by her side.

Derek is running away from his father. He just wants to make it on his own and I can understand that. Who wants to get things just because of the last name he has? I had more faith in him because he wanted to make it on his own. He only comes back home to find out what happened to his brother.

I enjoyed reading about Rose and Derek; they are just meant to be together. You just don’t know if they will be able to get over who their family is. I just got so into this story and I was mad when I reached the end. Just when it was really getting good and you thought you would start uncovering more secrets. Now I will have to wait until I get the next movie to see what will happen next.

I love experiencing young love and I know that you can’t have everything easy. You have to have struggles so that you can appreciate what you have when you get it. It just makes me wish that we could make it easy every once in awhile. I enjoyed this book and was glad that I decided to read it. It was a little different but in a good way.

I say take the chance and read this book because you will be missing a great story if you don’t.
