Review of Tainted By Temptation

Hello Everyone,

Today, I'm doing a review of a book I just read. It's a gothic historical in the tradition of the classics such as Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre. The title is Tainted by Temptation by Katy Madison.

I was drawn into this story to stay until I finished by the sufferings of these characters brought about by their peers. It showed me that in this respect our lives never change. There will always be those who will try to push you down no matter what your circumstances in life are. As Lucien and Velvet fight their own battles of the innuendoes voiced against each for different reasons, they learn to trust one another.

This is a wonderful story, but is not for children because unlike the classics Tainted by Temptation does have love scenes in it. If you have teenagers you have discussed sex with, they can probably be allowed to read it. This is just a discretionary note. Tainted by Temptation can be found at all local book stores and Amazon.

Have a great week, and I'll see you next Sunday.

Nice review...and it's great that you mentioned a possible warning for YA readers. Sometimes it's hard to tell about age-appropriate books for teens.

I absolutely loved this cover and the title. Nice to know you thought it was suitable for teens who've had "the talk" with their parents. I'll add to my reading list.

Thank you, Marianne. The classics may not have been age-appropriate when they were released, but they would be today. Since I compare Tainted by Temptation to the classics I had to warn my readers they need to decide what they'll allow their teen to read.

Thank you, Isis. Today, teens often know way more than we did as teenagers. Smile.
