Torn between telling her the truth and risking their future, he agrees to join her perilous quest. But their enemies to the north are not the only menace determined to see them fail and, to prove his love, he must conquer the demons of his past.

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

What a rush! This novella is action packed and suspenseful with enough romance to make your heart soar. The illustrative language that Nuest uses paints a beautiful picture for the reader. It is so easy to get lost in this world alongside the characters. Nuest develops everything to its fullest, without losing the action of the story in descriptions. The entire story is in perfect balance.

The stark contrast between the two main characters is absolutely breathtaking. It’s also completely comical at times. You can’t help but giggle at the things that they come up with. Their back and forth is extremely striking. These characters are also so well developed by this point in time in the series that they easily carry the story on their own. The minimal supporting cast barely registered I was so focussed on these two.

My final thoughts on this one? You’re killing me!!!! I need more now. I can’t believe this series will be over with just one more instalment. I definitely won’t be ready to give these characters up.

About the author:

I am a multi-published, award-winning author who lives in the middle of a cornfield in NW Indiana. My loving husband, two beautiful children and a bevy of spoiled pets have agreed to stay and, in exchange for three rations per day and laundry service, tolerate my lunacy. While I spend most days happily ensconced in crafting romance across a multitude of genres, an underground coup has been percolating. The dogs just informed me the cat is secretly vying for dictatorship.
