Wow I really enjoyed this book Rose is determined to stop her crazy mother, so many twists and turns. I thought Rose's mother was messed up but her father is way more messed up than her mother. With all the craziness I was happy to see Rose and Derek finally get married and have their happy ending. But it's not over yet now it's on to book 4.

I don't know if you've noticed, but I really like these books. This is the conclusion to Rose's trilogy. And I was super excited to read it. If you haven't read them, start with the first book, Seduced by Innocence, be aware that the first book ends on a cliffhanger so make sure you also have Seduced by Pain.

In Seduced by Innocence, each chapter starts with a quote from Romeo and Juliet. In Seduced by Pain, the quote is Midsummer Night's Dream. Seduced by Power has quotes from 'The Scottish Pla

Determined to put a stop to her mother's shenanigans, once and for all, Rose has teamed up with Blake and Derek in hopes of preventing her from fulfilling her ultimate goals. Sadly, none of them ever counted on Rainbow's resourcefulness. Neither did they imagine that she'd try to get exactly what she's wanted at a moment's notice.

Evading capture, her mother has done her best to try and destroy the shifters at every turn. Though she's never gotten her wish completely, she's caused enough damage t

The following review is my opinion and not a paid review. I received a free copy of the book from the author for my honest opinion.

Rose is still trying to find a way to defeat her mother, Rainbow and to take back the rose bush that she stole from Derek's family. Not only does she have to worry with her mother she is also trying to find a way to get Derek's brother Dean's soul back at the same time.

When Rose and Derek are having sex Rose has to feel pain so that she won't send Derek's soul to hel

This is the last installment for the Seduced Saga - Rose's Story. I have read each installment as it has been released and this is the best yet. I read it in one night because I just couldn't put it down. The roller coaster ride started with a plunge down the steepest part of the ride, then flashed back and started where the previous story left off. This trilogy has allowed us to watch Rose grow as a person and find her strength. She has always had the power to overcome, but this story really ta ...more

Kimberly Kinrade has written some of my favorite paranormal and Y.A. romances. Seduced by Power continues her winning streak in my book.

The Seduced saga follows the lovely story of a young witch named Rose and a Druid-shifter named Derek. The sparks between the two are hot, hot, hot and the love runs deep. Seduced by Power picks up where Seduced by Pain left off.

Rose and Derek are fighting to free themselves from her mother's betrayal. They need to recover the stolen rose bush before the Druid

Seduced by Power is the coup de grâce to the Seduced trilogy. War wagged between two paranormal households with one naughty romance in the mix; This new adult action paranormal romance was elfin alluring series involving shape-shifters, witches/warlocks/druids, demons, and magic.

One factor I really enjoyed was the Shakespearean references. It was paralleled perfectly with each segment. Seduced by Innocence pay homage to Romeo & Juliet while introducing the fueding families and blossoming fo

As this is the last book questions are answered and the twisst keep coming!
It amazes me how all this can come from one author's head! Just WONDERFUL!

Derek still has my heart, more so after reading this book. Man the things that he goes through and does it one heck of a lot for a woman! However, since he loves her I guess it proves so much!
Blake (the Demon), actually gets my admiration. Although he's been born evil as all "bleep" he turns ov

***Since my copy is an ARC, I cannot speak of any errors I may have or may not have found***

Seduced by Power picks up where Seduced by Pain leaves off. The joy and laughter from book 2 are definitely lacking in book 3. The story has taken a dark turn and other emotions are invoked big time as we draw to the climax of this part of Rose's story. The strength and power of Derek and Rose's love is prevalent in this book, and we learn so much more about Blake as this part of the story comes to a clos

Absolutely Perfect ending! OMG I can't believe this book! What you say?! Yes this book had me absolutely thrilled from start to finish! hahaha Reading Kimberly's books are never a disappointment. This is the 3rd book is Rose's Trilogy. Each book showing the reader Rose's growing pains as she learns about her powers and controlling them. Is she a demon or a witch or both? Hmmm...those of you that haven't read Seduced by Innocence...start at the beginning! It makes all the twists and turns of Sedu ...more
This was a good conclusion to Derek and Rose's story. The first chapter leaves you needing to read the rest but dreading it at the same time because you know something bad is going to happen. This does not always work, but I thought it did here. The present day to flashback got me invested in the story right from the beginning, and I flew through the pages. I am now eagerly anticipating the two companion novellas to Derek and Rose's story as well as Ocean's story. Keep up the good work Ms. Kinra ...more

I'd like to thank the author and Innovative Online Book Tours for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
It was the third book in a series and while the ending was expected, there were a few twists that were unexpected, and some that were heart-wrenching. The author made me care for each of the characters and hate some, but there was one whom you couldn't help but sympathize with.
Overall, I found the whole series to be well-written, without much of a pause between the b

With each and every one of Kinrade’s books that I read I come to love her writing more and more. I couldn’t put this one down. Her writing is so enthralling and captivating that you immerse yourself in the novel and lose all track of time. The book is also so flawlessly written that there is nothing to draw you back to reality. This book becomes your reality for a short while.

I love the consistency between the novels in this series. Kinrade adopts the same writing style and tone within each of t

And with that i can finally call it quits on the series. For reasons I can't quite explain i got really sucked into this series and felt like i needed to keep reading despite not particularly enjoying it. Luckily this one wrapped up the storyline pretty well in fact i have to wonder why they didn't just end the series here because I can't fathom anyone wanting to continue reading.

“By the pricking of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes.” -William Shakespeare, Macbeth

Druids, shifters, witches, and demons; romance, sex, intense action and the overwhelming power of true love. This third book in Rose’s trilogy is fast-paced and quite intense.

Rose and Derek must finally face the evil that threatens the future of their family, their magic, and their love. They each bravely face that darkness that lurks in each twis

I was chomping at the bit for this third installment, especially after the second one ended in such a cliffhanger! All we knew was that Rose's dark gift finally managed to take Derek away. ACK!

I ended up devouring the entire thing in less than an hour on a short car trip. I wanted no one to talk to me, so that I could concentrate on the final battles.

I will admit that like all final books in a trilogy, this one is my least favorite. I think this is because the climax hits in the second book, o

This is a really interesting series. I loved the way this one started! Funnily enough Rose has some issues on her hands. Major ones.

This starts actually in the middle of the story and then goes back to explain how things happened the way they did. Blake is still in the picture, which is awesome because I really like him! But all hell has broken loose and not only does Rose have major issues, all of the Druids do.

This builds on the story that the first two started. This one is more intense and le

I barreled through this book just because the first two in the series were cliffhangers. All three books are short and it didn't take up much time to get the closure I was looking for.

Except that one of the main areas in which I sought resolution never did get resolved. (view spoiler)

Another great book by Kimberly Kinrade. In this series Kimberly shows her "adult" style writing with pretty hardcore intimate scenes. I would say a bit of a erotica novel with some harsher words than a typical romance book. Rose and Derek have figured out they are be intimate as long as Derek in flicks pain, but can this really happen or will Rose's powers take over and send Derek in

With the power source gone Rose and Derek's family must find a way to get it back and stop the coven leader for good and stop her plans for the ceremony. Instead of using rose as the sacrifice victim she chose Blake tells her she will use her sister Jasmine.. But in the opening story a fun time turns into darkness for rose and Derek. Her power gets the better of them and she sends Derek to the demon plane were his brother is. Two days before rose and Derek were having a wonderful time being toge ...more

Another Fantastic Read! This third book Seduced by Power was a fantastic read. Again this book continues where the second book ended. This book like the others in the series has many great twist and turns and has your heart going out to the two main characters Rose and Derek.

"Seduced by Power" is the third and final book in the 'Rose Trilogy' and picks up where the second book, "Seduced by Pain", left off as Rose and Derek continue their journey and as usual I was not disappointed at all.

Cliffhangers, gotta love em! Especially when finishing off an enticing, enthralling, seat-of-your-pants story. Rose, Derek, Blake are written in a way that you can feel their pain, their happiness, confusion, wants and desires. I don't generally care for Demons and Hell descriptive stories, but Karpov Kinrade write in a way that you're so focused on the characters that even while you're reading, you're focused on them, not where they are, though you are aware.

This is the third installment in the Seduced Saga series with Derek and Rose.

I thought this a fitting final book to the series. Kimberly has a way with words and characters that just sucks you out of your own life and throws you into the world she has created. I couldn't put this one down and I am glad I didn't. I'm sad to see Rose's trilogy come to an end, but it ended so perfectly I can't even find it in myself to mourn.

I have to give Seduced by Power 4 stars only for the fact that it felt a bit rushed at times. If there were more room for the plot to unfold, the story

My favorite of the series so far! If you read my reviews of the first two books in the Seduced Saga, you may have picked up on how much I am enjoying and loving them. Well, the third book is my favorite so far. It was packed full of twists and turns and had a number of highly emotional moments. My heart broke for both Derek and Rose because of what they were facing in this book. The ending was very satisfying and I cannot wait to dig into book four and see what else Karpov Kinrade have up their ...more

Very satisfying ending to this trilogy, although I have to admit the first chapter scared me until I read further!
