Wow this is a first I have read from Shannon Emmel and it won't be the last. This author not only brought a new world, but made me believe that we all have a special gift inside that we are afraid to show. This was a great introduction to The Lotus Circle. I felt for Sadira for as a child to be called a freak is harsh but to suppress that gift is hard to do. Not only does she have a gift to heal but is afraid to show her gift because of one bully. Then you have Dr. Luke who by all counts is a very patient man when it comes to a woman he loves dearly. I loved that the author did a very good detailed history about The Lotus Circle and kept the theme throughout the whole book. Can't wait for more of this talented author's books.
Savvy talk-show host Montgomery Jones has it all! Fame, fortune and fabulous friends. With this year’s Emmy win almost guaranteed and a business empire extending far beyond her television show, she thinks she can finally put the painful lessons of her childhood—of Sadira Montgomery’s childhood—behind her. But Fate thinks she still has a lot to learn. Something is missing in her life…a willingness to accept her healing gifts and fulfill her true destiny as a descendant of The Lotus Circle. Dr. Luke White Eagle’s Native American roots are deep and healers run in his family, so no one understands heritage, or the burden of certain talents, better than he does. He can help Sadira reconcile her past and embrace her future. What he can’t do is write a prescription for trust. The Wheel of Fate is in motion and soon events will force Sadira to either accept the gifts she has long denied, or bring unbearable pain and suffering to those she loves. The choice and the power are just a touch away.
