Reine has lost everything. His family and his ability to fight and be a protector or he so thinks when he meets her in the bar. Mysique is special and when she meets the dark broody man life changes. As they explore the town of Lance together he finds himself and the real reason he’s on Earth. Reine is a Guardian and will always be a Guardian.
So this was the first time I read this author. Its an interesting story line of Protector's of Earth saving humans from the bad guys, the Inferums. They come to Earth to steal souls. Reine has lost a limb and is depressed and wanting to die but gets a new look on life when he meets Mystique. Planned or not? Maybe. But they do make a great combo and this pulls Reine out of his depression and gives him a new purpose. This story is the king of dark but ends in a very happy ending. This book might not be for everyone but its an enjoyable read if you are looking for something new.
He’s the kind of man her mother warned her to steer clear from...
Mystique is happy with her current life, but for years she's struggled on a path of self-destruction. She knows she shouldn't get involved with the brooding hunk at the bar, but how can she stay away when his sorrowful gaze is so compelling?
Reine has lost everything: his wife, his friends, his ability to fight, and his identity as an Alpha Protector. There's nothing left for him except a world of anger and bitterness. At least, that’s what he believes until he meets an intrepid waitress.
The attraction between them is immediate, but while Reine can’t let go of his past, Mystique is not willing to return to hers. With darkness constantly closing in, will they find a way to be together? Or, will Reine's behavior destroy their future?
