Christmas is only days away and I feel as I just stepped off of a time machine. I just finished reading Protect Her and am now having a hard time bringing myself back to the real world of glittery trees and merry carols. While I normally don’t much go for demons and curses, this was a powerful book to read.
Golden and Kris are lovers who were cursed centuries ago by a terrible demon–like there’s ever been a good demon, right? The evil Lailoken first condemned Goldhain and Krzysztof to a fiery death, only to return at the appointed time, reincarnated. Destined to meet and fall in love, they could only hold each other a short time until their ultimate date with death once more. Endless times the young lovers reincarnate and repeat the sad cycle, forever trapped in a living, dying curse.
This time, however, it might turn out differently– or will it? Golden is strong, stubborn and smart. Sassy and determined, she might find a way to break the curse once and for all. Or die trying. With her lover and hero, Kris, at her side.
With grand period detailing and great imagery that switches from the creepy to the exotic settings they globe trot to, Golden and Kris’s story is one steamy, hot and intense read. As are the longings between them as they fight their way around and over every obstacle before them.
Five stars for a well written story! Bring on Book 2 please!
