Description from publisher:

The moment she arrives at her rented vacation cottage nestled in northern Scotland, Zoë Daniels feels it—an arousal so powerful she’s compelled to surrender to the unusually forceful carnal desires…with nearly anyone who crosses her path.

Zoë knows she’s not quite in control of herself and begins to wonder if there’s any truth to the legend of Annabel McGraw, a powerful, promiscuous 18th century witch who once owned the cottage, and whose spirit is rumored to affect anyone who stays there. Zoë doesn’t believe in anything that even hints at the occult, but now strange visions are turning frightening… and only one man’s touch can bring her back to earth.

My thoughts:

I was initially drawn to Rampant because of the paranormal aspects. Erotica isn’t something I usually read, but I found the synopsis for Rampant interesting so I decided to check it out. I’m glad that I did.

Yes, this book was naughty but it also had a great plot. The author has a very beautifu,l and descriptive style of writing. You couldn’t help but to hate the bad guys, and love the good ones. The setting was a beautiful coastal town in Scotland which just happens to be one of my favorite places to visit when opening a book. The descriptions of the terrain were so vivid it made me feel as if I was there seeing it all through the character’s eyes. As if that wasn’t enough the romantic interest was a gorgeous man with a Scottish brogue. Men with accents always win my heart. There was no exception when it came to Grayson Murdoch the blonde witch and love interest of Rampant’s protagonist Zoe.

Rampant is a beautifully written work of erotic romance. It contains fascinating characters, and steamy love scenes all set in the gorgeous country of Scotland. All in all I found this a very entertaining read. I’d recommend it to those that enjoy paranormal romance and whose senses aren’t offended by more risqué sex scenes.

  5. Definitely sounds like an interesting read. Sometimes its nice to go outside your comfort zone a little and try something new and it sounds like this was a nice little something new for you. I have to say I'm a sucker for guys with accents too! Maybe I'll have to check this one!
