Title: Roused (Moon Called, #2)
Author: Lilou Roux
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: 20th October 2013
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

I read and reviewed book one in the series, Drawn, here. (My reviews have improved a bit since then 🙂 )

Synopsis:

Hell-bent on getting her sister Tess out of the clutches of what can only be a weirdo-cult Erin Wright travels all the way to Montana. Upon arrival she ignores the beautiful setting and the tug of longing in the pit of her stomach. Though most of all she tries to ignore the hot guy who opens the door.

Erin is determined to keep Seth from getting under her skin and the Hawkins family and their magic out of her heart, but that’s easier said than done …

18+, contains graphic sex scenes

So this one follows Erin, the old sister of the two, and how she follows her sister, Tess, across the country worrying her sister may have gone a little mad, wanting to marry a man she’s known for such a short time.

Erin is fiery and doesn’t mess around with words. She tells people what she thinks and wants and has never met anyone who stands up to her. Until she meets Seth. He knocks her down a few pegs with his flirty attitude and she finds herself wanting him, almost as much as he seems to want her, but she holds back.

I have to say I liked Seth, he’s sort of gentle in his seduction of her. He doesn’t push her into anything but he wants answers as to why she keeps turning him down when he realises there’s a definite reason behind it.

It was a sweet story of overcoming fears and finding yourself again after suffering at the hands of someone else.

Book Review – Drawn

Name: Drawn (Moon Claimed, #1)

Author: Lilou Roux

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Release Date: 20th August 2013

Rating: 3½ out of 5 stars

I received this copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

A recurring dream drives Tess Wright to journey across the country until she finds a strange sense of peace in a small town in Montana. A place where the dark woods are calling to her – and a place she has seen in her dreams without ever having been there before.

In a beautiful and out-of-the-way B&B she wants to get to the bottom of the matter and quickly connects with the owner’s son Nathan Hawkins. But as Tess begins to fall in love, the lines between dream and reality blur.

For how could Nathan be possibly the man in her dream?

I really like the books cover, which is always a good thing 🙂

So, this is the debut story from the author and I was intrigued from the beginning. Why did she have these dreams? Why did she recognise the lake in the picture?

I liked Nathan. He seemed like a really nice, sexy guy who had his eye on Tess right from the start. And some of the sex scenes were fairly steamy… ;P

There are a few minor wording issues but considering the author is from France, it is overall very good.
