Publisher's Summary

"I bind you to dread’s cold embrace 

Until your truth you boldly face."

Kiera never wanted to be a witch and certainly did not desire to inherit her mother’s ancestral crown. Yet, as the rightful heir to the Bargarran Coven, it is a destiny which becomes inevitable upon her parents’ untimely death.

Summoned to New Orleans on Samhain night for an annual gala, Kiera struggles to come to terms with her impending ascension. However, before she can make a final choice, a curse whisks Kiera through the veils of time.

Trapped in medieval England, Kiera must come to grips with her deepest fears in order to return to her own time and protect those she cares for. However, the journey is complicated by both an evil presence intent on preventing her return and a blossoming love with a noble knight, Aisling, who aids the young witch upon her quest. 

As Kiera is forced to face both past fears and an uncertain future, she is confronted with the greatest challenge of all. 

Does she give in to her heart’s desire and remain with her newfound love? Or return to her own time to claim her rightful place within the Bargarran Coven?   

Both choices promise a heart wrenching price.

My new favorite short time travel romance

I am picky about PNR and time travel romance, but this one is wonderful! I love the concept of this Cursed Coven series written by multiple authors, and this individual novella's story surprised me with its exceptional quality and satisfying plot. This is my first book by K.L. Bone that I have experienced. I will definitely be listening to more audiobooks in this series and more books by this author. I highly recommend this one to everyone who likes paranormal romance or time travel romance. There are a small number of really well-written, moderately steamy love scenes. The story is told only from the third person perspective of the heroine, but the hero’s lovely words gave me a good window into his good heart and intelligent mind.

I adored both main characters. I really related to Kiera, and I rooted for her as she grew emotionally during her tough challenges. Kiera is the 24-year-old heir to the leadership of a powerful witch coven in Scotland. When she was a small child, she almost perished in the terrible fire that killed her parents. On her next birthday, she is set to inherit the powers and position, but she doesn’t want it. Then, at a coven meeting, someone sets a curse on the coven, and Kiera gets swept back in time!

This is the first time that I have experienced the work of the narrator Kylie Stewart, and she blew me away with her exquisite performance. Her English and Scottish accents were like music to my ears. Her American accent is great as well. Kylie Stewart’s beautiful voice swept me away and elevated the excellent writing to an even higher level. Her male voices are also incredibly believable and sexy.

I requested and received a free audiobook copy via #AudiobookObsession, and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Interesting plot

This was a pretty cool plot. I could tell a bit where the story was going and it was fascinating. Unfortunately, the constant switching of time (years in the past and future) was extremely confusing. I also personally prefer a stronger heroine. The narrator did a very good job though and I felt like the voice fit and was very personal.

Cool premise, quick listen, sweet romance!

Listened to the story on Audible. Narration sounds nice; the narrator has a lovely accent. She gives a performance with good clarity, and her tone fits the story well. Plus, she had to sing a bit and she did great!

This is a quick entertaining story that I would've loved more of. What was there was great, but I would've loved a bit more detail in some scenes and a bit more to the ending. It's a short story though, so I didn't dock any stars because I still really enjoyed the whole premise of the story. Kiera is a witch whose family was murdered; she doesn't quite remember all the details of what happened, but it has left her feeling a bit lost. Kiera is now being asked to take over as leader for the coven her mother ruled, but she doesn't feel up to the responsibility of ruling a coven. When she ends up traveling back in time to the early 1300's, she's going to need to find out how to survive in this different time period, how to get back to her own time period, and if she can handle it all. Luckily, she has a handsome, good-hearted knight in Aisling to help her. The romance is so heart touching and the connection was wonderful. Aisling is a total sweetheart! Loved all the magical elements! There's some evil witches on the loose! The adventure through the past was entertaining too!

A wicked read!

Does she give in to her heart’s desire and remain with her newfound love?
Or return to her own time to claim her rightful place within the Bargarran Coven?

Wow...was not expecting such an awesome and fantastic book. I was gripped right from the start. Such a perfect read!

The narrator did a beautiful job of giving life to these characters.

Paranormal Romance

Wicked Desires by K.L. Bone is a paranormal romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Kylie Stewart.

I absolutely love K.L.’s Books! She does an amazing job pulling you into the story. . I knew the story was a novella length but I couldn’t help but want more of Kiera and Aisling story.

Kylie did an amazing job on the narration! She really knows how to bring a story to life.

3.75 stars

Narration was amazing! The different accents were great and each character had a distinct voice.

I liked the story. There was betrayal, secrets and time travel all in one small story. It kept things interesting. The I love you came pretty fast after meeting but it is a quick listen so it's expected. I have to say that the character I found most intriguing was Nicholas and I wish he would get a full length book because I can imagine his story has so much potential. If you like quick listens and are a fan of witches and vampires then this is for you!

Short but HOT!

Definitely recommend this book! Even though it was short, it was hot! Characters and storyline are intriguing from the very beginning to the end. The narrator did fabulous job in creating the characters. I need to go to the beginning of the cursed coven series.

Don’t ignore your fate...

Sometimes when we wait too long, our fate gets tired of waiting. It takes over and creates a reminder of why you need to be in that moment; why you never ignore your duties and known future. Alas, did Keira find this out too late? Well, listen and find out!

Great book I couldn't stop listening

I love it. How a witch was raised by vampires to take over a coven. The past she gets to visit to help set things right in the future! What more can come I hope there is more to this story. I would live to find what happens to her and her beloved that was turned so he could be with her again in the future. #AudiobookObsession

Good PNR!

This book was enjoyable, I wish it didn't switch between past and present so much but it was still good. I liked the characters and the plot was interesting. I will definitely be checking out other books in this series. 🎧AudiobookObsession

Wicked Desires

This was my first book in this series and I had no trouble jumping right in. Kiera has always thought she did not want her birthright, that is until she realizes others are willing to kill for it. This is a fun action packed super natural story and I love how it overlaps with the Vampire Mates Series. Nice job on the narration, super easy to listen to.

Love time travel

Kiera has traveled back in time to save her coven in the future. While in the past she falls in love with a knight, Aisling. With his help and a vampire friend that was a live in those times she learns the key to saving her and her coven. This was a great short PNR story and Kylie Stewart was amazing with the narration.
