Kaia Verde is one of the four Faerie Handmaids of Zafira, Queen of the Fey. To redress an ancient wrong done to Zafira by a human king, the Handmaids make sport of mortal men, seducing and humiliating them. When Kaia sets out to seduce Garrett Jameson, but ends up being the one surrendering to pleasure, Zafira is furious. Kaia's punishment is simple: make Garrett fall in love with her by the summer solstice, then break his heart, or face eternity without her wings—or her soul. To make the task harder, Zafira tells Kaia she cannot use her faerie magic or charm to lure Garrett into her bed.

What I thought

I wasn't sure what to really expect when I began this novel. I was pretty stoked in starting and I was glad that I was given a chance to review it. The story was full of tender moments that left me breathless and eager to continue on. Inara Scott has a gift when it comes to romancing her readers and it shines as Radiant Desire unfolds.

Kaia was a great character. I was drawn to her at the start, as if her fairy influence effected me as well as other people in her world. What made Kaia so great, was that while she never knew what it meant to be human before, she gets a crash course and learns with it really means to live. Radiant Desire was utterly beautiful.

The romance was a little tricky. I wasn't sure how it would all end and I loved the fact it kept me on my toes. While I had an idea of how it might end, it left the journey untouched and the ending blew me away. This is a promising book in a new series and I can't wait to get my hands on the second book.

First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if
you don't mind. I wass curious to find ouut how you center
yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had trouble
clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems
like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just truing to figgure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
