Morgan of Avalon our heroine is sent into the future on a mission to save all magic. She has been sent to kill the WindWraith. A evil that threatens past and future magic.
Ryan a druid, and our hero has been sent from a post apocalyptic future on a mission of his own. He arrives in time to save Morgan from certain death, and the two find themselves trapped alone on a magical deserted island.
Their passion explodes off the pages in this novel, Morgan and Ryan find themselves joining forces to kill the WindWraith. They must learn to trust and believe in each other, if they plan on having any chance of success.
These two strong, noble heroes will dare anything, risk everything to save their world, and their love.
This novel was wonderfully written. The world building is brilliant and fascinating. The island had a life of its own, and the author made me fill like I was right their on it. I could picture everything in my minds eye, and it was completely believable.
Everything was very descriptive, and I could appreciate that. The passion between Morgan and Ryan was a delight to read, and I wanted them to succeed so bad. This story had everything that makes a book good. Mystery, fantasy, and time travel is just a piece of it.
I highly recommend Wicked Paradise if you love a book that has those elements, I recommend it if you don't. It's a good read that will have you finding yourself swept away.
Avalon, the island of magic and mystery, is a key element in Erin Richard's lush time traveling tale of desire and betrayal Wicked Paradise. With well developed characters, descriptions that titillate the senses, and good dialogue grabbed my attention from the first page. A strange mix of fantasy, and dystopian romance, Ms. Richard's world building is well done. Adding in some with light erotic elements definitely makes this a unique romance read.
Seeing your own death is never pleasant, especially if your Morgan, one of the most powerful Druid priestesses of all time. Believing she has no future, Morgan is surprised when her father insists she accompany him to the magical stones on Avalon on her birthday. The day she's sure is her last. As her father tells her of a different future where she's responsible for the continuation of magic and mankind, Morgan finds herself transported into the future on Avalon with only the knowledge of the task she must complete - kill the WindWraith and survive to carry on her bloodline.
Ryan O'Roarke, a Druid assassin from the future, finds himself on Avalon with only one task - help a powerful sorceress complete her task. Determined to do his duty, Ryan never expected to be captivated by her beauty or tasked with saving her life and their joint future. Tasked with saving the future, will Ryan's skills be up to the task?
The scenes between Morgan and Ryan are entertaining, full of good dialogue and smoking hot chemistry. While they are both tasked with saving the future, their differences, keep them from completely trusting each other. I enjoyed how Ms. Richard's developed both Morgan and Ryan's characters; they both had to overcome their issues from their pasts in order to work together to accomplish their joint goal. As their adventures bring them together and they learn to trust each other.
The secondary characters were also well written and helped to move the story along. The setting, the island of Avalon, was well described and almost a character itself - it's easy to see why it's the ideal setting for this type of story. The antagonist of the story, the WindWraith, was also well done and clearly not a demon to be trifled with.
Will Morgan and Ryan accomplish their goal and find the love of a lifetime? How will what takes place on Avalon affect mankind's future? You'll have to read Wicked Paradise to find out. I enjoyed it and look forward to reading more of Ms. Richard's work.
Thrown together on a deserted island paradise, Morgan (heroine) and Ryan (hero) come from two different places in time. They must overcome their distrust of each other to destroy the evil WindWraith on the island. But as their bond grows, so does WindWraith. When their choices threaten not only the safety of their worlds but also their chance to be together, will love be able to conquer all?
Morgan and Ryan are bursting with chemistry from the moment they first meet and the sexual tension rises with every page. The characters are both vulnerable, lovable, brave, and noble.
The description of scenery was vivid and detailed, immersing the reader as though s/he were on the island. The island is a character of its own and added a new layer of richness to the story. Ms. Richards has true talent and a gift for weaving words together.
"Wicked Paradise" was a wonderful story and I'm looking forward to reading more from Ms. Richards in the future.
