This novella is a companion piece to the Solsti series and can be read as a stand-alone.Kidnapped as a teen and forced into a life of sexual slavery, Garnet vowed long ago to do whatever she could to spare others her fate. When karma comes full circle with an offer of freedom for her and her young son, she jumps at the chance.
Masquerading as a village innkeeper, Aden keeps his espionage work secret from the gentle pixies he lives among. Using his skills to prevent a group of vicious demons from attacking the innocent, his world is draped in mist, shadow, and danger.
Steeped in shame, Garnet is loath to share her past with Aden. But Aden senses a sweet, loyal strength in her that no amount of horror can erase. His dangerous work is the opposite of the stability Garnet craves. Yet Aden’s patience and strength make him the hero she never had. When the enemy targets them, Garnet and Aden realize that honesty is the truest form of courage.
5 awesome stars*****
So good... great addition to this already great series! Can be read as a stand alone but if you've been following this series you will recognize the main character, Garnet, who we met in Wicked Waves... so nice to see her get her HEA!
Garnet was Kidnapped at age 15 and held as a slave at Stroehm in the demon realm. She finally has an opportunity to escape from this horrific life and chooses to return to her childhood home with her son Dash. She meets Aden who is residing there as an innkeeper in an effort to mask his undercover job as a demon spy. Their attraction to each other is strong and undeniable.
Garnet's back story was heartbreaking but seeing her embrace freedom and love for the first time in her life was heartwarming. I love a strong female character...
I do think I'm a little in love with Aden... yep... I'm in love with a fictitious demon man... don't judge me! He was so patient, loving and understanding and... well, sexy. :)
I would love to see more of this couple again... they were perfect together. Beautifully written, engaging and stands on it's own... very satisfying read.
This novella is a good place to start if you're wanting a taste of what this series is like... or, if you're interested you can start with book one... Wicked Wind
