Kissed by Water by Delwyn Jenkins Review

Kissed by Water
The Watchtower Chronicles #3
By: Delwyn Jenkins
Releasing September 24, 2015

Charlotte McLaren is tired of being the good girl - the shy, gentle soul that everyone tiptoes around in case she startles. She wants to be strong and decisive, as powerful and independent as her Witch-sisters. She’s determined to join in the fight against their enemy and to do that she has to challenge everything she’s been taught to believe.

Tristan, a Watchtower Knight, has spent three agonizing months locked in a hell of dark magic - and he emerges a changed man. No longer fun and carefree, there’s a darkness in him now that stalks and prowls, just waiting to escape. A darkness he’s desperate to keep from everyone he cares about, especially the lovely Charlotte.

But his water Witch lures him with her innocence and determination, making demands he’s not sure he can fulfill. His honor demands he walk away, but his heart already knows it’s too late.

Charlotte is a water witch, and in a Quatre with her 3 other witch “sisters”; Amelia an Air witch, Kam, a fire witch and Mycah an earth witch.  After being recused from dark magic by the protectors aka the knights of the watchtower, but alias they didn’t come out unscathed. Tristan (a knight) soul watch snatched into the darkness of black magic by the evil Malleus.  But Charlotte will not let Tristan stay in the darkness and after a light and dangerous fight; she succeeds in bringing him back in to his body.
When Tristan awakes, he can’t get Charlotte out of his head and after a time he realizes that he is very much in love with her. Soon their relationship turns from one of a protector in to one of a protector and lover.
But of course, love can never run smoothly and the dark forces strike out at the knights and the Quatre and then you just hope that they will survive.
Okay, so I have not read any of the Watchtower Chronicles before and so I found this book extremely hard to follow. There are many name, previous battles etc. that I haven’t read about and while the author tried her hardest to catch the reader up on what had happened in the previous two books, it didn’t quite get there. I will say by the very end of the book it was much easier to read, though at times I was still confused.
Overall a good book and maybe after reading the first two, I will understand the book better. I give Kissed By Water 7 out of 10

Delwyn Jenkins likes radical career changes. After serving in the Australian Navy for ten years (and being exceptionally disciplined) she switched to a full-time university Arts student (where getting out of bed before 11am proved traumatic). She’s worked as a teacher, an editor, and now writes full time - a career she plans to stick with for as long as anyone wants to read her stories.

She’s an avid reader and movie-goer, an amateur belly dancer, and a disinterested cook. She live on the beautiful south-east coast of Australia where the changeable weather suits her mercurial nature.She writes sexy, sensual paranormal romance as Delwyn Jenkins and also writes erotic romance under the pen-name DJ Michaels.
