The Enemy Within

Daughters of the People, #3

Lucy Varna continues to write stories that complement the rest of her Daughters of the People series. This story was well written and fast paced and a pleasure to read. These stories are best to be read together and in order and they seamlessly flow from one to the next. The Enemy Within is the third book in the series. Ms Varna builds her characters into interesting and fun people to get to know and it is great to see so many of the previous characters continue into the next book. You can laugh and cry with the characters and the pages sizzle with the love scenes. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series. Each book has Ms. Varna focusing on the couple in the book; however, you also see past couples and possible future story lines.

Indigo Dupree left Tellowee years ago, running from circumstances she wasn't ready to face yet. She has returned home, wanting to be close to her family with the upcoming birth of her newest sibling. She ran to get away from a young man years ago and she's not planning on forming an romantic entanglements. Bobby Upton is the man who has loved her from the time he was a teenager and the reason Indigo ran. Circumstances make it so the two have to work together, to help save the People and themselves.

Book Blurb for The Enemy Within

After fourteen years, Indigo Dupree returns to Tellowee, Georgia, to face the past she left behind. She's tried of running, tired of hiding, and wants nothing more than to help her mother through the final days of her pregnancy. What she doesn't want is to become romantically entangled, not even to the sinfully handsome Bobby Upton, whose kiss sent her fleeing a decade and a half before.

Bobby is the son of the Blade and a ruthless warrior in his own right. At sixteen, the age of manhood among the People, he tried to claim the woman he loved and failed, and spent the next decade hacking his way through Uncle Sam's enemies. Now a successful businessman, he's given the task of tracking down the People's enemies, including India Furia, the twin sister of his heart's only love.

Duty demands that Indigo atone for the sins of her sister by helping to bring her in. India has other ideas, ones that draw Indigo and Bobby into a deadly game involving the Prophecy of Light, forcing Indigo to choose between her duty and her heart.
