So the other day I wrote about another book by Jacquelyn Frank called Pleasure. This book, Rapture, is actually the 2nd book in a 3 book ‘series.’ I put series in quotations because although these books do tell one larger story, they’re also super easy to read independently of each other.
Reading Rapture after reading Pleasure was a bit odd because I already basically knew what was going to happen – I just didn’t know how. I still found the book compelling and I definitely got sucked in wanting to know what was going to happen next. Rapture is actually a bit darker than Pleasure. There’s more sinister activity going on.
Again – this book, just like Pleasure, is heavy on the romance part of paranormal romance. The sex scenes are vividly described and last for several pages. Again, just like I said about the book Pleasure, I get it if that’s not your gig. And the same thing still goes… even if she had taken out all the sex stuff, I think the book still would have been good (although to be honest it would have been hard to write this particular story without the sex stuff).
So far, I have definitely enjoyed this series and I’m more than likely going to purchase the first book in the series (it wasn’t in my Half Price book box that the Husband got me).
Here’s the synopsis from Barnes and Noble: The Shadowdwellers live in a realm of darkness and sensuality, where order is prized and sin must be punished. Yet for Magnus, the head priest of Sanctuary, salvation rests with the one woman who can entice him to break every rule…
She Was The Ultimate Temptation
Magnus is a man of contradictions—a spiritual leader in a warrior’s body. To him, laws are for enforcing and visions must be followed—even if that means freeing a beautiful slave and making her his reluctant handmaiden. Betrayed once before, Magnus can barely bring himself to trust another woman. Yet Daenaira’s fiery innocence is drawing them both into a reckless inferno of desire.
