Rookery Cove: Kidnapping Karisma
By Tuesday Morrigan
Karisma “Kitty” Knowles is the best at what she does, making people feel sexy in their delicates. Still, she’s a little surprised when Rookery Cove Aphrodisiacs offers her a job at their company designing erotic lingerie. It’s the perfect excuse to avoid the four men that make up the Kanakis Pack. The four very different, gorgeous men are convinced she is the final element required to complete their family.
Karisma is surprised and angry to find that the Kanakis Pack has followed her to Rookery Cove. One by one, the men seduce her mind, body, and soul. Things get really crazy when Karisma gets an overdose of the secret aphrodisiac called “Venus” that makes her lingerie oh so alluring.
Watch Kitty go wild with four very hungry men willing to appease her every wicked desire.
I loved reading this book. Kidnapping Karisma is a stunning offering by Tuesday Morrigan and a fitting addition to the Rookery Cove multi-author series.
Karisma “Kitty” Knowles was such fun to get to know. She was strong-willed and determined to live her own life, no matter how her heart ached for the men in the Kanakis Pack. It may seem that she’s crazy for turning down four very hot men who are very much in love with her, but Karisma has her reasons, and very valid reasons at that. She doesn’t want to give up her career to be a stay-at-home wife to four very alpha males. She wants to be an equal partner not only in love but in life as well, and who can really blame her! She was a pretty amazing woman and I could see why her men would do anything to get her back into their lives.
The entire story is told from Karisma’s point of view, but I loved that the author was still able to put forth the feelings and emotions of the four men as well. At one point I thought that it would be nice to have seen the story from the men’s points of view, but then realized that it probably would have been too confusing to be given five points of view to keep track of. I have to say, I’m glad that Ms. Morrigan decided to keep it in Karisma’s perspective as I was able to focus more on the story than on who was feeling what.
The men of the Kanakis Pack were varied and each had their own personality traits that endeared them not only to Karisma but to the reader as well. The four men who make up the pack are all shifters of a different variety: Aleka, the apparent leader of the pack is a Phoenix, and runs hot in every way. Jae, the closest of the pack to Aleka is a dragon, and runs with his own heated desires. Bailey, the Irish werewolf seems to have the most apparent sense of humor of the four, and made me smile on more than one occasion. Last, but definitely not least, Malik, the black panther, who was just as determined as the rest of the men to convince Karisma that they need her in their lives. All four men were hot in their own way, and this reader can guarantee you’ll feel the abundance of super-hot shifter pheromones!
I loved that we were given the chance to get to know each man as an individual as well as a part of the whole group and their place in the pack. The individuality of each man made a deeper and richer story for the information given. All in all this book was a journey of love for all five, but a bigger journey of discovery for one man in the pack most of all as he learned to let go of fear and trust in the amazing, miraculous love they all shared. If he can learn to let his heart lead then he will learn that the love they share will see them through anything life can throw their way.
The only drawback, and the main reason I can’t bring myself to give this a full five cherries, was an issue regarding Karisma’s nature. In the beginning of the story a question regarding her nature and form was put forth regarding whether an old “fairy” tale was true or not. This question was never answered one way or the other and I found myself a bit disappointed that something that had seemed important or at least interesting and able to further the storyline wasn’t fully addressed.
Aside from the above concern, I thoroughly enjoyed Kidnapping Karisma. Tuesday Morrigan has created a book that is full of heat, frustration and a deeper love that will leave you smiling. I gladly recommend this book and hope that you will take the time to enjoy this as much as I did.
