Caleb Donovan was never meant to be a prophet. At heart he's a conqueror, his appetites far more carnal than spiritual. He's not inclined to repress his passions and surrender to fate. After all, that's what cost him Lily—three centuries ago. She married another, because it was ordained. Now that he's in the same benighted calling—and forced into proximity with her—all the old desires are roaring back to life. . .
After widowhood and centuries of celibacy, Lily is eager to explore the wild side of life, except now she's vulnerable to another forced relationship, with an enemy. But this time she's determined to choose her own path. And if hot, furious Caleb comes charging to the rescue, it might just change both their destinies. . .
Love is about to start conquering. . .
Overall rating: 4.5 Rockin’ Stars!
Lily has been a Prophet for her people since the death of her husband. She has always put duty before everything including love.
“You want to forget about war and duty? Come home with me.”
Caleb has always loved Lily even though she chose duty over him when she married another. Now that Lily has been infected with Virus-27, her mating mark has been removed and he can pursue a relationship with her.
She blinked and inserted the diamonds as if in a dream. Heat rose into her face. Was Caleb trying to court her? “Thank you, Caleb.”
All the Prophets have been having terrible dreams demanding that they kill Janie Kayrs. Are they really dreams directing their paths or are the nightmares?
“Janet Isabella Kayrs must die. To save humanity, to save everyone, the prophesied one must die.”
Between Caleb and Lily will they be able to solve the nightmares or will they be forced to follow their duty. Lily has never had a vision that incited violence or one that told her to kill someone.
“You have the eyes of a soldier and the heart of a warrior, Caleb Donovan.” He tilted his head to the side running a hand down her arm. “Why is your tone sad?” “That doesn’t leave much, does it?” His dangerous eyes somehow softened, even in hue. “That leaves everything. Want my soul, Lily? It’s yours.”
Will their love be strong enough to do what must be done to keep their people safe and broker a peace between the Witches, the Demons, the Kurjans and the Realm?
