Laura Black knows her boss is a man of many secrets–haunted by some unknowable force, driven by some unspeakable destiny–and yet it makes her crave the devilishly handsome, roguishly charming Charon all the more. When she uncovers a betrayal that will send her into a world of magic, she turns to the only one she trusts: Charon. Even when she’s in jeopardy of losing her heart…
Charon Bruce endures a relentless yearning to have Laura for his own, an ache he knows will never be fulfilled.  After the town he has protected for centuries is targeted by a ruthless Druid, he has no choice but to reveal his secret to Laura. He must fight the deadliest foe he’s ever known if he’s to keep her safe.  But when Laura is captured by his nemesis, he must choose between winning the battle of good versus evil–or losing the woman he loves…

 

Review:  I have read some of the books in this series but I hate to say that I have jumped around on them. When I read this book I really didn’t think that I was really missing out on what was going on. I was always brought up to speed and was able to get lost in the story.

Charon has been through a lot but which warrior hasn’t? Some have been through more than their fair share and unfortunately Charon has. He moved to a place that he felt he belonged and he knows that he has brought evil there and soon he will be having to leave again. He has feelings for Laura but knows that she can never be his because she isn’t a druid.

Laura has worked for Charon for two years and knows that he is hiding some things from her. She wants to be with him but knows that she will only have her imagination. When she is almost kidnapped Charon has to start telling her some of his secrets and he tries his very best to keep her safe.

In this book we find out about the dragons and just the way the author describes them makes them come alive in my mind. There seems to be a lot going on in this book and that is just how every book in this series is. We have Aiden working with a woman trying to figure out the whole blood thing and how it can help them in the end. Laura finding out that she has powers and Charon realizing that he does need someone after all.  There is just so much excitement in this book. I just want to see what else will happen in the next book. Makes me just want to get all the books and read them one after another. There is always a secret that is revealed in every book. You never know what it is until the end. You know there will be more that will still need to unfold.

This author does a wonderful job with her writing and keeping her audience entertained. Each and every book is more exciting then the last one. I love reading about every warrior and having them find that one special woman that is for them. We even meet new beings in this book and start to see the warriors children have a life and find love. I will be having to read the dragon series and see what the differences is between the series and how the author brings them out. I also wonder if the warriors will make an appearance in the dragon books. I say that we will probably see some warriors in them. I hope with each book that the warriors will be able to get rid of all the evil and be able to live peacefully in the end.

I would tell everyone that loves paranormal and things that are different to read this series and get to know a pretty great author that knows what she’s doing.
