"Awakening Power and Passion" [Flower Fae Series, Book 2] by Nicole Campbell
Author's Book Description : Jasmine Moonflower is an Earth Fae only interested in exploring her talents and developing her gifts. Upon reaching adulthood, she comes into her power and is urged to start looking for a mate. The Elders have said her heart would tell her who her mate is, but none of the males in her village speak to her heart.
Duke Halton Steel knows all about the Fae. Many of his people in Essex are at least part Fae, and he protects them from a dark sorcerer. He is pleasantly shocked when Jasmine literally falls into his arms one day in the woods. She and the Fae she saved from the dark sorcerer return to his keep for safety.
Can the duke, an ally in the form of a Sorcerer of Light, and Jasmine keep them all safe? Will their love be enough to boost Jasmine’s power enough to help the Sorcerer of Light destroy the Dark One?
My Book Review : 2.5 out of 5 stars. Just as Jasmine gets into what is considered the Fae adulthood, she gets herself into a bind by being caught by a powerful dark sorcerer called Tristen the Dark One. Tristen plans to force her to willingly marry him so he can then take her power as his own. However, Jasmine is stronger than even Tristen could have imagined and finds a way (along with others who were captured) to escape. Once escaped she meets Halton (Duke Roger Halton Steel the Second) who brings out a side of herself she never knew. Will she be able to really escape from Tristen and move on with her life for good?
This fast-paced fantasy romance brings new ideas to what the “typical fae life” could be while throwing the readers right into the nitty-gritty of it all. For me this novel was a little too fast-paced to be as enjoyable as I had liked. In addition, although I found Jasmine to be an entertaining character, and I enjoyed learning about her ways of doing things, by the time she meets Halton I found their relationship a bit forced. Also, while I admit that they have some enchanting chemistry and it was quite cool what her power does when they are together, I never got a chance to really appreciate them as a couple because of how the plot plays out.
Nevertheless, I WOULD still recommend to those looking for an intensely quick fantasy romance and/or to fans of this series!
