He’s her darkest fantasy. . .
After years of struggling, Haven Daly has finally accepted that she’s nuttier than a fruitcake. Why else would she see visions of a beautiful but tormented male every night . . . and actually believe she can talk to him, even feel his touch? But thanks to those dream journeys, she can paint images nobody else on earth can duplicate. In each brush stroke, she captures the blatant masculinity and raw desire in his eyes that promise he’s coming for her…and soon.
She’s the light that keeps him going. . .
Quade Kayrs has already suffered a lifetime of pain and torture. Completely isolated, he kept his sanity thanks to one beautiful female, a vision with kind emerald eyes. In the end, her soft voice led him out of hell. Now, naked and alone, he’s in a strange world that bears little resemblance to the one he left behind. All he knows is Haven. All he wants is Haven. His final mission? To protect her from the evil hunting them both—whether she likes it or not . . .
This is one of those stories I imagine most fans of the Dark Protectors series have been waiting for since this series has been picked back up. It certainly didn’t disappoint, either. I adore Haven, her strength and grit after all she’s been through and all the things she’s believed about herself. And, although Quade is drastically out of his time, he adapts quickly even while resistant to some of the changes he has to make.
Haven and Quade are meant for each other, there’s no denying that. How could they not be after the connection they’ve forged through the years. Even though Haven didn’t realize it was reality, she always felt a link to Quade.
There are so many things that start coming together in this story. The wheels are turning fast and furious. There are some answers we’ve been waiting for and more questions have come up. I’m so anxious to find out where this all going while loving the ride.
One of the things I really appreciate about this series is the humor. Seriously, as grim and crazy as things get in the world of the Dark Protectors, the author always finds humor. There is a vein throughout this book that has to do with toothpaste and it is gold! It really endeared Quade to me even more while making me giggle every time. I may have said this in a previous review of a Rebecca Zanetti book, but even my husband knows when I’m reading when of her books because of the reactions I have while reading. Laughing, gasping, yelling, and telling the characters what to do. I get very animated when reading these stories, that’s for sure.
I never want this series to end while also wanting everyone to find peace and their HEA.
