Forbidden Passion: Review & Giveaway

About The Book:

SHE SEES HIM IN HER DREAMS...

Fueled by her family's murder years ago, Dr. Marlena Bender has devoted her life to understanding violent criminals. But when a serial killer in this small Southern town starts taking the lives of women in diabolical ways--leaving trophies of his kills on Marlena's doorstep--it all hits too close to home. Terrified, Marlena turns to the only man she can trust...the man who saved her life.

BUT HIS SECRET IS HER WORST NIGHTMARE.

Sheriff Dante Valtrez would move heaven and earth to keep Marlena safe, but he's not the savior she thinks he is. A dark legacy runs through his blood and a dangerous secret lies within him. Now a fierce, hot, ruthless desire draws Dante and Marlena together--as a demonic force from his past threatens to rip them apart, destroying everything they hold dear.

About The Author:

It was a dark and stormy night when Rita Herron penned her first book--at age twelve. A dark and stormy night because she didn't think real people grew up to be writers, so she put her dreams aside and earned a teaching degree instead. Ten years later, she traded her chalkboards for a computer and now she writes so she doesn't have to get a real job. Having written over fifty books to date, this multi-award winning author and mother of three spins spine-tingling, paranormal romantic suspense stories that she hopes keep you up at night. 

My Review:

I have to be honest and admit I did not read this book right through. Initally, I signed up for the review because it sounded like a fantastic book. However, when I received it and started to read it, I realized that it was about a demon-man and due to my Christian faith, I decided not to finish the book. Of what I read (a few chapters) the writing style was excellent and very easy to read but I could not, in good faith, continue to read the book. I need to express to you my readers, my apologies for promoting a book that goes against my Christian faith. The purpose of this book goes against this, as well as my goal for my blog to bring you good, clean products and books. I have been really upset about this and I hope you will understand that I still had to promote the giveaway, due to fulfilling my obligation with the publisher. I will definitely be much more discerning in the future.
