"I had a VERY hard time putting this book down! ...romance, action, uber sexy male lead, and uber sexy supporting male characters... I did not want it to end!"
-- The Book Junkie's Bookshelf Reviews
"Those who like a suspenseful, harrowing love story will enjoy this..even more than a love story; it’s filled with sorcery and ...a bit of horror as well...an entertaining tale, one that will satisfy the reader right to the very end."
This is an enjoyable romantic fantasy starring a strong female lead, a desperate male praying for a second chance at love, and a powerful support cast to include Providence and to a lesser degree Grand Pre. Readers will relish this enjoyable tale as love is tested by reincarnation and a malevolent mage.
