Destiny's Mark

The Guardians of Eden, #3

Destiny's Mark is the third in the Guardians of Eden series. I highly recommend starting at the beginning of this fantastic series in order to fully appreciate the rich and complex world the author has created. The larger saga keeps evolving but each book is complete within itself. This one is Tsu and Jai's story. It's intense, suspenseful and a true testament to love. Jai is such an unexpected character. She grows and finds herself throughout the story. Her determination is tremendous. Tsu is one of my favorite people ever. His strength and power are unmistakable but subtle. He's not an 'in your face' alpha male, nor does he need to be. Together, Tsu and Jai are really something special. Their relationship builds slowly but the chemistry is there from the start. The very serious topic of abuse is handled with respect but with a sense of realism. Guardian lore continues to grow and the author weaves it seamlessly within the plot. So many series tend to lose focus and quality as they continue, but not this one. Great story, great series and great writing. I can't wait for the next.

Jai has a mission. She will find her daughter no matter how long it takes. Tsu is a Guardian. He waits for the one woman who is his. In Jai, he has found her. But the path is fraught with obstacles. Just maybe together they will find their way.

Book Blurb for Destiny's Mark

The only difference between fate and destiny is choice.

Tsu Halan, Guardian defense master, has honed his skills and waited patiently over the centuries for the covenant’s promise of a mate to share his soul and a family to cherish. Close enough to taste fulfillment, the dark echoes of the past threaten with danger and death.

Jai Dashkov harbors her own painful secrets of harsh betrayal and tender loss. Her desperate search to reclaim her life doesn’t allow room in her heart to deviate for love.

Together they are stronger than apart, but the promise of the covenant is a perpetual test. One that Tsu and Jai must conquer in time or suffer an eternity for their failure.


A race of beings created in a Sanctum at the far edge of Eden. Co-existing with mankind, they safeguarded human souls and the promise of eternity—until a virus killed all over the age of eighteen. The surviving children fled to the Sanctum for protection, children raising children without the full legacy of their history and knowledge. Two hundred years of solitude have produced a race of semi-immortals fortified with powers and intellect but lacking the mates who will make them whole and allow them to fulfill their covenant with mankind.
