Alayna’s car stops and she gets out to find help on the empty road. But she walks into another world …it seems. There are people who don’t really understand her, who dress weirdly, and there are stores that she knows closed down many years ago. She is welcomed friendly enough and after spending hours there meets someone named Khayden. What she doesn’t know is that he is a Lawke and she is his Kee.
This had a slow start introducing the main characters. After that I thoroughly enjoyed Khayden and Alayna’s story. There were slow times, when I skipped pages. When I focus on a story I dislike too much about side characters or back-story. I still enjoyed most of the book.
Can a woman who has been betrayed in the worst way by an ex-spouse learn to trust again? Will she open her heart to a man who seems to be too good to be true, meeting every requirement she has ever wanted or needed in a partner? Alayna would. But it will take time. Time is the one thing Khayden, Master Lawke, doesn’t have. His enemies are bent on destroying his people and harming Earth in the process. The only way to save both is for his Kee, Alayna, to unlock him, freeing his powers and unbeknownst to her, her own. But first she has to believe that there’s more to her current lover than she sees. It will take a leap of faith to accept his pursuit and engage her battered heart again. The attacks are speeding up, with an alarming amount of casualties. Despite the fierce attraction, Alayna isn’t sure she’s strong enough to lay bare her heart again, so soon. Khayden is betting his life that she is strong enough to do that and to handle his flame.
