Single mom Rachel Hunter has not one second to spare in her day between rearing two daughters, running a thriving goat farm, and keeping tabs on her eccentric brother. Not to mention an ex-husband who's in prison for murder and a local gang leader harassing her at every turn! Then a gorgeous, tattooed man crashes into her fence and she finds out exactly what it means to have her hands full.
Pruxnae Dyuvad ab Mhij is sent to Earth by a mysterious Net telepath to protect a young girl, from what, the 'path doesn't say. He arrives at the girl's home expecting the worst, and is greeted by the young girl's mother, a honey-haired, plain spoken temptress whose mountain fortitude makes her a perfect candidate for the Choosing.
Dyuvad's first duty is to his mission, protecting a young girl from dangers unknown. It doesn't take long for the danger to become apparent, however, and soon, he and Rachel are embroiled in a reckless game led by a man who will stop at nothing to control Rachel and her children (Summary and cover courtesy of goodreads.com)
Please note: I received a free copy of this book courtesy of Lucy Varna and voluntarily wrote a review.
In this continuation of the series, we meet new characters (or, if you already read “A Warrior’s Touch” get context), but do still have a few cameos of previous characters at the beginning. The book mostly takes place on Earth so if you don’t have the context of who the Pruxnae are, you may be a bit confused as to why Dyuvad does some things. As such, I recommend starting of the beginning of the series if you’re just hearing about them!
I would say this one is slightly lighter on the sexual content than some of the others, and a little more for setting up the foundation of the relationship. Since there’s a full family involved, I think this makes a little more sense to make sure that Dyuvad has a relationship with Rachel’s daughters as well. The munchkins are adorable and I’m particularly interested to learn more about Tiny and how she fits into the bigger picture of the story. For some reason, I don’t think we’re going to leave it off where it is now, but that that story might be revisited. Having read this one, I think I’m due to re-read “A Warror’s Touch” and remember what happens with Yasmin!
Warning: Contains sexual content and some violence.
Rating: 5 stars!
Who should read it? Science fiction fans looking for a romantic twist! I do, however, think this one could be a bit confusing without the context of previous book.
