For standing against her brother, Brigid McLaine is imprisoned within her home. All she wants is freedom and the ability to follow her dark nature. But captivity poses a greater threat in the form of her handsome guard, Micah Nelson. Day after day of confinement leads her down a treacherous path of desire she can no longer ignore.

When Micah befriended Brigid six years ago, he never imagined the woman who haunted his every fantasy would end up being the very same demon he’s employed to guard. During the forced confinement, he comes to learn the softer, gentler side of the woman who is despised by her family–and he recognizes the fear that keeps her chained to her sire. As their bond strengthens and passion ignites, Micah struggles to convince Brigid to confront her fears and escape her incubus father’s dark designs.

Yet with the sabot of Litha so near, one of them must make a choice. Will Brigid find the ability to confront her sire once and for all and embrace the lightness in her heart–or will Micah find the courage to let go of the one thing he wants most? Brigid.


Review:  I really loved this book. It’s a beautiful romance with a couple you absolutely want to root for!

Brigid is half a demon who has been locked into a section of her brother’s house because her ties to her evil father are strong. Brigid is fighting between both sides of her nature – the good and the bad. It doesn’t help that her prison guard is a man she is becoming more and more attracted to.

Micah is beyond attracted to Brigid….but he can’t admit it, not even to himself. But every day, it gets harder and harder to control his passion. Brigid isn’t making it easy for him either. One night of passion spawns a love that won’t be denied. Micah refuses to give up on the woman he has completely fallen for.

Micah is the ultimate book boyfriend. He is sexy, funny and brave. He is determined to prove that love IS worth fighting for and darn it, I like it!

I’ve read a few books by Claire Ashgrove now and I am so glad. All of her books are magnificent and she breathes such wonderful life into all of her characters. I cannot wait to see what she is working on next.
