ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

Keaton Mara was still reeling by the revelation of the man she thought she knew. Trying to move on with her life proved to be hard when her heart still desired for the one who betrayed her. With a new power emerging and threats looming, she couldn’t afford to lose more than she already did.

I barely recognized the woman looking back at me because she wanted someone she should never have desired.

I have to say, I don’t envy Keaton at all with all the things she had to endure. She was a strong person (albeit unwise), braving the decisions she made.

“You can ask anything of me and I’ll do it. Letting you go is the one thing I can’t do.”

I had conflicting allegiance to the two men (which I won’t elaborate to avoid series spoiler) in her life. My conscience felt sorry for one while not necessarily accepted the other. But my dark side actually root for both of them :p

The first half of the book was a little slow for me. There were too much talking and not enough actions for my preference. But as it progress, they play on loyalty and honesty kept the story engaging. I like how it ended – as in the sentiment.

This…” I paused to allow him to chew over my words. “…is about redemption. This is about the power of forgiveness.

Seducing Virtue is the conclusion to the dark and deceitful Wicked Trinity series. The series would appeal to readers looking for a sexy (and sometimes disturbing) thrill ride.

I’ve always believe I could lead a cult. Not as the face, but as the mind. Like a certain someone… lol!

COURTNEY LANE has been creating her own little world since she was very young. When she was eight years old, she began to bring her worlds to life with a pen and paper.

While many of her works touch several different genres, she has an archetype when it comes to the female protagonists in her stories — they have to have certain brand of strength, be deeply flawed, and harbor layered personalities. In her books you will find themes that reflect the darker side of life with a tremendous amount of depth and complexity. She also has an affinity for characters that aren’t necessarily the girl or boy next door, or the people you’d encounter in everyday life. In other words, she prefers to explore characters who aren’t easy to fall in love with

Currently, Courtney can be found either working on her next book, playing the latest role-playing game on her X-Box (preferably a game by Bioware), or spending time with her family.
