"You're my soul mate. It's like the story Aristophanes tells. In the beginning, humans were both male and female, but the gods feared their strength and so Zeus tore them apart, leaving them dying until Apollo stitched up the broken pieces. Since then, men and women have wandered the earth searching for their missing half. Most never find it. Whatever else happens, Rose, I'm so glad I found my other half in you."

**SPOILER ALERT** If you haven't read book 1 and 2 **SPOILER ALERT**.
This installment takes us back to where Rose's mother has just stolen the roses from Derek's family. Rose has been welcomed to the family of Druids as Derek's fiance, but she is still struggling with the fact that she is to blame for the situation with Derek's brother Dean. Derek and Rose are using pain to control her power so they can be together, but with the loss of the roses, Derek and the rest of the shifter druids are slowly loosing their powers. The situation is dyer and tensions are running high. Rainbow must be found, the Rose bushes returned, and Rose must find a way to control her powers and return Dean to his body.
As Rose struggles to accept who she is, events happen and she is forced to confront her father and mother. Will Rose be able to run the gauntlet and go to hell and back to save Derek and his family? Will Derek be able to find his strength of will to become the leader his father always knew he could be? Can they both fight for what they love and save everyone?
I totally enjoyed this part of Rose's story. By the end I was even rooting for Blake. Kimberly has done a wonderful job of developing the characters and connecting 3 self contained stories, while sharing an overall combined story. The vividness of the situations pulls me in and doesn't let me go until the conclusion.
The Seduced Saga is a must read for anyone who enjoys paranormal romance.
