A shifter and a human together? Unimaginable…
One careless decision. The colony betrayed. Tanen’s only course is a desperate hunt for justice, but his solo mission is cut short when he’s mortally wounded. Rescued by a sweet, innocent woman, he can’t deny the passion that burns between them. Now he must choose between his duty and honor or his desire for the precious, but forbidden, human female.
Broken promises and ruined love hardened Sheri’s heart. When she finds an injured and extraordinarily sexy man on her property, she’s pulled into a world she never imagined. As she nurses him back to health and they bond over their love of books, she’s torn between the lessons she learned from her rough past and the need to seek solace in Tanen’s arms, but she must learn to trust him, and herself, in order to survive.
In book three in the Warriors of Lemuria series, Tanen finally catches up with the traitor, Mauree, after a long chase. He’s determined to protect his king and people by any means necessary, but he’s not a warrior—he’s a scholar and the council leader of the Stiyaha race (an alien race from the planet Lemuria that now lives on Earth). After a few Gossum attack and nearly kill him, he seeks shelter on a human’s property, never expecting he would meet the love of his life.
Nurse Sheri Lockwood tends to the injured man in her shed. He’s nothing but trouble—just like her absent father and her drug-addicted ex-husband, Ram—but she’s drawn to him. Then she realizes he’s not human, and her life turns upside down.
Tanen and Sheri are great characters. He craves redemption for his sins and finally proves he is a strong, honorable man. She faces her fear and stands by Tanen’s side in a spectacular fashion. The chemistry between them is off the charts. There weren’t many sex scenes, but that’s understandable because the course of this story takes place in a few short days.
Ram returns after dying in the previous book, Untamable Lover, and I’m so happy he did. This book wouldn’t have made sense without him!
I liked the scenes with Alora on Lemuria, but she keeps making mistakes and letting Zedron get her into trouble. I’m anxious for her to fight back.
I like Ms. Redd’s writing style. The story flowed well and kept my attention, but sometimes I didn’t know who was speaking (one character would act or think something, and another character would speak in that same paragraph).
Anyway, I’m excited to read the next book in the series.
