A riveting, imaginative new novel of paranormal romance from bestselling authors Linda Howard and Linda Jones.
Lenna is Strength, a manifestation of the Tarot card, and powerful beyond reckoning. But when she's pulled into the human realm, tasked with protecting a young boy, everything is thrown into chaos. Lenna's not supposed to be here, interacting with mortals. She's definitely not supposed to be drawn to the sexy mercenary sent to retrieve her by any means necessary . . .
As a Hunter for magical beings, Caine's duty is simple: return this compelling, impossibly attractive woman—or eliminate her. Instead he's drawn into Lenna's dangerous rescue mission and blindsided by his growing feelings. But there is more than one enemy to contend with. And as the clock runs out, failure means not just the loss of an innocent life and the woman Caine has come to love, but the destruction of Lenna's entire world.
It has been years since I have read anything by Linda Howard. I like this joint book by she and Linda Jones. I could not stop reading this book. Lenna, Caine, and Elijah were great. Although, It was Elijah that really was the superstar and who stole my heart. What with his innocence and his love of superheroes. I mean who does not want to get the chance to be a superhero. Yet, I can't forget Lenna and Caine. Their chemistry and attraction to one another was hot. Lenna may have been royalty but she had compassion. Caine is the type of guy I would want watching my back. My only complaint is that I do wish that there were more fighting scenes as it was great to see Lenna and Caine in action. Even Elijah got into the action some as well. This book is not frosty but magical and worth your time to check out!
