About the Author

Tina Traverse is a passionate writer, avid reader, a self-proclaimed Autism Warrior Mom, and Proud Newfie Gal. Tina hails from a quaint little hamlet on a quaint little island known as Canada’s youngest province, Newfoundland. The desire for writing came at an early age when she wrote her own spin on the Bible’s Good Samaritan story for her third grade class. When she fell off the traditional publishing path, Tina stumbled onto an exciting new path called self-publishing. It’s been a thrilling journey, including publishing not only her own work, but being a part of numerous anthologies. In her spare time, Tina enjoys leisurely strolls in the great outdoors, playing Thomas the Tank Engine with her youngest son and being beat at Wii bowling by her teenage son. Tina lives with her husband of too many years to count in a scenic town by the bay. Front row seats are available to Tina’s work and ramblings in a variety of ways.

Format: Paperback
Sometimes reviewing a book is easy and other times I have trouble expressing my thoughts on a story. I find this instance is one of the latter. This one left me with… let’s say… conflicting opinions.

First off, the book was written in present tense. I find stories that use present tense harder to get into. It takes longer for me to adjust to the story when the style is one so uncommonly used. (I probably come across one present tense story out of ever thirty to fifty books that I read.)

To compound the issue, the book is also written in shifting first person perspectives. Now, the chapters are labeled so there is no confusion as to who the first person pronouns refer to–although there are long passages of straight dialogue without exposition so conversations get difficult to follow at times but I digress. The story line itself is difficult to follow at times because the perspective shifts so often it creates an issue with the flow. You see, the story is told from four separate point of views, two are related- a brother and sister- while the others have no connection to the siblings or each other, of course their paths cross later on but for a large chunk of the book, you get bits and pieces of the story from the various characters. A chapter with one character would end and the story would pick up with another character, then the scene would change back and things had progressed with the first character leading to unexpected situations without any real explanation.

I received this book as part of a Review Tour for Books On Fire Tours.
Covet provides readers with the ultimate challenge.There are multi points of views, a very different language almost, and a whole cast of protagonists.This book seemed to be all over the place at first and it was hard to keep track of one story line as each chapter revolved around a different character and their story. Timelines seemed blurred, but overall the flow of the book worked.
Having said that, you are gripped from the start and have no choice but to read each story. They all fall into place in the end to reveal the pieces of the puzzle you have been waiting for. This is the true brilliance behind this author.
Scarlet Winters lives in Newfoundland with her mother and two sisters. After the tragic death of her beloved father, nothing is the same. Then a horrible accident turns her life upside down once more. Homeless and alone, she is taken in by Victor Smith the local Reverend. He introduces her to Christian Leblanc, who offers to pay for her to go to University. All is not as it seems as she soon discovers that Victor Smith is Victor Leblanc and along with his brother, Christian Leblanc these Vampires want to kill her. They inform her that she is a powerful Witch who holds the key to immortality and that they want her heart as it will grant them the real immortality they seek. She escapes from their clutches only to be forced later on to join a powerful organization called The Selective.
Sebastian and Declynn are twins who suffer a tragedy on their own. They are saved by Victor and Christian Leblanc who turn them into unique Vampires.Through a series of events Sebastian is also forced to join The Selective.

Scarlett Winters thought she had a good life and thought she knew those around her. Tragedy sets her on a path with her destiny. Through many missteps she meets up with Vampires that will change her life and bring her powers to life.

Sebastian & Declynn Sinclair are unaware of what they truly are and who they are meant to be. They both suffer a terrible loss that sends their world spinning. Eventually their paths collide with Scarlett's and what happens next is nothing any of them are ready for.

Can they all work together even though they all have past tragedies and pain?

This book was a breath of fresh paranormal air. I didn't see any predictability in this book and it truly surprised me. I am a lover of paranormal books and this book did not disappoint. The story was a little slow at times but worth the wait. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series. Good Job Tina Traverse!

Will this supernatural trio overcome archaic rivalries and personal demons to work together to conquer a relentless, sinister predator?

Tina Traverse’s Covet is a fun romantic read, while it is steamy, I really enjoyed the darkness contained in it. That helped make the story seem more real for me. Scarlett, our MC, is kind of a quiet person. When we first meet her, she is dealing with the loss of her father, and that may help frame that impression of her. But, she isn’t exactly a normal human either. And, then, of course, this story has a vampire—a hot wonderful vampire named Sebastian. I’m still fanning myself. LOL. Following them both on their quest of love, steaminess, and intrigue is one hell of an experience. Lovers of paranormal romance will devour this one. I’m not kidding
