Book Description

The Banshee's Desire - A Paranormal Romance Urban Fantasy. This is Book 2 in The Banshee's Embrace paranormal romance trilogy.

Half banshee Jacqueline Huston is confused. With the Brotherhood of Merlyn looking for her, the specter of Death wanting her soul, and having to live with the knowledge that her wizard boyfriend's son killed her husband, sometimes life feels a little chaotic. Then the Brotherhood kidnaps the love of her life, Toby Williams, in an attempt to convince her to join their crusade for power over other supernatural beings.

In this book, Jacqueline comes to grips with her enormous powers--capable of reaping any soul, a temptation she must avoid at all costs. But will she be able to control her immense powers, or will she use them and risk losing everything in order to save the one she loves?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Desirable Read!---All Things Writing Review February 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've always been fascinated by banshees and Irish folklore. When I stumbled upon Victoria Richard's book The Banshee's Embrace a few months ago, I just fell in love with the story. I'd already checked out her book, Voodoo Love, so I knew this one had the potential to be another great read. I wasn't disappointed. The Banshee's Embrace was funny, sexy, and very romantic. I admit that romance is not always my first choice when it comes to choosing a genre, but as you can see, Ms. Richard's has really hooked me!

Which is why I was delighted to read her follow up book, The Banshee's Desire.

One of the things I liked about the first book is that it started with a strong hook. Banshee's Desire is no different! We learn right away that the wizards are majorly pissed off that Jacqueline has killed the son of one of their own and they demand vengeance. The struggle Jacqueline is having with her powers becomes obvious when she kills a lawyer who attacked her friend--even though it wasn't her job to take his soul unless he was already at the brink of death. (Personally, I thought the creep got what was coming to him!) Now she struggles to maintain balance in her life and be a good person while at the same time dealing with the desires and wishes of the murdered souls who cling to the person that killed them.

Talk about a headache! Yikes!

I really liked seeing Jacqueline's inner struggle in this book. Her character has evolved a great deal and while we see some of her previous insecurities, the reader can also tell she no longer just adopts a "wait and see" attitude about things. She is determined to make things happen--whether they are right or not.

Toby, a wizard, is her love interest.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Banshee's Desire by Victoria Richards April 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
`The Banshee's Desire' is the second book in The Banshee's Embrace Trilogy. So much has changed for Jacqueline Huston, now she's come into her banshee heritage, dating a wizard, and trying to control her powers. The wizards of the Brotherhood of Merlyn are out for blood because Jacqueline has killed one of their own, even though he was a total jerk and tried to kill her and her loved ones first. Now she's dealing with her boyfriend's son, who has his own agenda and killed her husband, her growing powers, and Death itself. When Jacqueline's best friend, Angela, is attacked she gives into the temptation of her half-banshee nature, but at a great cost...

`The Banshee's Desire' is a very solid and entertaining follow-up to `The Banshee's Embrace', the first book in this trilogy. Jacqueline has fought off and killed the evil wizard who was behind the original attack on her and her husband, but now there are very grave repercussions for her actions. As she learns what her powers can really do, she must avoid temptation to use them at all costs. However, it's difficult as her emotions rage out of control against those who hurt others and their victims' ghosts who cry out for vengeance. Jacqueline has grown a lot while dealing with her increasing powers, but she's not mastered them yet. I think the author has brought a great deal of humanity to Jacqueline's character - she's trying to do the right thing, which at times means keeping her supernatural nature on a tight leash. Yet when emotions overwhelm, it's difficult, just like it is for anyone else (human or otherwise). Toby is definitely a balancing force in Jacqueline's life and when he's in danger, she goes in no-holds-barred. I both liked and disliked the newest character introduced - Irish Death.

The Brother hood of the Wizards of Merlin are out for her blood because she killed one of their own, even though he tried to kill her and her loved one's first. Now she has to deal with her Boyfriends Son who has his own agenda and he killed her Husband, Her growing powers, and Death himself. A funny, sexy, very romantic read. I highly recommend if you enjoy stories about the paranormal
