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.
Review: I really enjoyed the uniqueness to this story line. Lenna encapsulates strength perfectly, but she's much freer than she seems to be in the beginning too. I like that her relationship with Caine is really secondary to the mission, to helping the poor boy who's mother has been murdered. I also particularly enjoyed the way that the plot didn't always go exactly as expected. A nice, lighthearted paranormal romance.
