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.
Our group liked the uniqueness of the world using Tarot Cards and how they brought Strength to the little boy. Strength was an enjoyable character; we liked the way she embraced the child and cared for him.
Did like the characters and their uniqueness, but the romance felt a little contrived. If they hadn’t been stuck together – and they were literally stuck together, they would never have been together, in our opinion. She’s like a god and he’s a paranormal bounty hunter.
Despite the disappointment in the romance feeling contrived, the story was enjoyable and we liked the ending. Would have liked a more complete Happily Ever After for the whole group, rather than just the singular ending we got. We would try these authors again.
