Myia, a shaman-in-training, wants desperately to protect her peaceful village from the barbaric Highland invaders. To hone her powers of prophetic visions and healing, the village elders send Myia on a quest: to heal the Highland warlord’s heart and stop a brewing war. Myia’s mended many souls before, so this should be an effortless duty . . . until she meets the gorgeous, stubborn Highland warlord.
Kedric, a gladiator who escaped enslavement, only wants to liberate the villagers from their common foe—a race that breeds humans for blood sport and genetic experiments. Fueled by his rage, Kedric is determined to take down the brutal enemy. So when a raven-haired beauty with a body made for sin tries to sabotage his mission, Kedric wants her gone. Yet no woman’s touch has ever left Kedric more annoyed . . . and aroused. Kedric knows he should shun her soothing embrace-but he can’t seem to stay away. As their passion grows, Kedric must decide between fighting
his war or surrendering his rage—and his heart—for Myia’s love.
This book caught me off guard with how much I ended up enjoying the story. With that being said, it did feel a bit confusing at times, but I think that could just been because I haven’t read anything by this author in the past and didn’t completely understand this authors writing style.
I did enjoy the characters throughout the story because no matter how minor of a role they had, they were still given an amazing personality and ability to keep you drawn into the story. I did end up enjoying this book more than I thought that I would, and I loved how the main characters were both strong and not willing to compromise until it was necessary.
I did feel a bit confused, but I think that might be because this is the second book in the series. I do plan on going back and reading the first book at some point in the future, and I will also be sure to look into other books by this author in the future.
