Blog Tour, Review & Giveaway: My Forbidden Desire by Carolyn Jewel







Alexandrine has just found out that her brother, Harsh, is still alive. He's got some very unpleasant news for his sister. Her birth father wants her dead. Harsh decides to make his friend Xia stay with her as her protector. The only problem is Xia hates witches with a passion but not nearly as much as he hates Alexandrine's father who enslaved him.

Alexandrine and Xia both fight their desires for one another but in the end are unable to help themselves. They fall deeply for one another and end up making some mistakes that may be irreversible.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. If you like Paranormal Romance then this is a great book to add to your to be read list.
