Genre: Paranormal Romance M/F

Main Characters: Kyter and Iolanthe

Release Date: January 6, 2015

Reviewed by: Wendy

My Rating: 4 stars






BLURB: A jaguar shifter with a dark secret, Kyter has spent his entire life running from his demons. When a tragedy takes him back to his pride’s village, he is set on a path of vengeance that will see him collide with the terrible ghosts of his past and a beautiful vision of his future.
Iolanthe deals in finding artefacts for discerning clients, but this time her client is one of the deadliest men in Hell and her mission has the highest stakes imaginable. Failure is not an option when your life is on the line, but things take a dangerous turn when she crosses paths with a handsome and mysterious male on the hunt for the same artefact—a male who declares she is his eternal mate.
Can Iolanthe resist Kyter’s wicked allure and find the artefact before he does? Can Kyter face his demons and win the heart of his fated female? Or will this deadly game of cat and mouse claim both of their lives?


Review: Leaving his pride was easy, leaving his mother was the hardest thing Kyter has ever done. That's what he thought until he had to return to the rain forest and his pride to bury his mother. Kyter lived most of his life with the pride of jaguars who treated him like an outside from day one just because he was different from them. He is half jaguar and half demon. Growing up he was told by the pride elders he would never find a mate because no one would ever want him due to being a mixed breed.  Believing them he left to make a life for himself in the city. Once he laid his mother to rest he set out on seeking revenge for the demon he blamed for her death. 
Iolanthe is a treasure hunter for hire and she is looking for something that will help her get away from some very dangerous men who hired her. When Kyter and Iolanthe meet she wants nothing to do with him, her goal is set on finding the artifact, not falling in love. 
Agreeing to work together for a gain that they both need, Kyter and Iolanthe grow closer every day which is shocking to Kyter who always believed that he would never be fated with a true mate.

BLURB: The forces that bind them can also tear them apart…
Zachary McKenna is a warrior shapeshifter from the Lion Clan, trying to catch a break in the sun and surf of Mexico. Mai Tais and scantily clad beach beauties are just what he needs after his last battle. But the fun doesn’t last long before a beautiful young woman is mugged on his doorstep and Zach is pulled right back into the fray.
Zach has no idea of the danger Annabelle has unwittingly brought to his doorstep, until he discovers that losing her will almost certainly destroy him…

Shonna's review: My first thoughts when I finished the last page of UNBOUND was,...my kindle is broke. This can NOT be the end. Surely something happened when I downloaded this book. OMG, No, no, no!
But in the end, my kindle was fine and it did download the book correctly. Since then, I have been very upset and literally thrown for a loop. My emotions all over the place, I began having a conversation in my head with Sara Humphreys as to how distressed I was while pointing my finger to emphasize that I needed to read more about Zachary and Annabelle, and....... Wait a minute. Ding, light bulb just went off in my head. 

I'm looking at this the wrong way.
Sara did what she is good at. Sara did what a talented author does. She had me totally wrapped-up from the beginning to the end. She made me fall in love with everything about this amazing love story. Then, while some things were coming together, she throws the dice one more time. So now there are still lots of events yet to come that make me crazy for more of her work. I don’t want to wait. I need to know right now what is going to happen to these two characters that I have become passionate about.
Yes, Sara just proved (again) what a fantastic author she is. So well written, and so well executed. I have been a huge fan of the AMOVEO series from the beginning and with each installment it just gets better and better. What more can I say, this is without a doubt another winner.

The rules:
No dating.

No sex outside of the game.
No disclosing the terms of the contract.
Rules were made to be broken, right?

Eight weeks ago I signed a contract. One that seemed like a good idea at the time. A handsome bachelor, luxury accommodations, and a chance to win a prize my family desperately needed. There were some rules though. Lots of them actually. Follow the script, no dating, sex, or disclosing the terms of the deal. After my self-imposed moratorium on men the last year, it wouldn’t be hard to live up to my end of the bargain…so I thought. Until I realized the deal I’d made was with the devil…and I was in love with his dirty-talking brother.



Excerpt

Every girl needs three things 


1. A flutter in her belly when she meets him for the first time. 

Meet Cooper 

My lips brush the top of her hand lightly, my tongue sneaking out to fleetingly touch her skin. The brief contact stirs an ache inside me. This woman tugs at something—more than arousal—something that makes me want to slow down time just to spend a few more minutes standing here.

“Did you just…” she stammers a bit.

“Did I just what?”

She squints at me. “You know.”

“Do I?”

“I felt your tongue on my hand. You…you licked me.”

I’d been dying to run my tongue along her neck all evening, although I hadn’t really meant to be so crude about it. It just sort of …happened. “I wouldn’t say licked, maybe just a little taste.”

“So you tasted me?”

My entire body suddenly has interest in this conversation. “I suppose I did. But it wasn’t nearly enough. That brings us back to my invitation for dinner. Tomorrow night?”

“I can’t.”

“The day after then?”

She laughs and shakes her head. The sound makes me smile.

“Good night, Cooper.” She pulls the driver’s side door shut and leaves me standing there…for a full five minutes after she’s gone.

2. A best friend to talk about him to. 

Meet Sadie 

“And?”

“And I kissed him when we were in his office.”

“How was his office?”

“Really? That’s what you want to know. Not how was the kiss or aren’t you in breach of your contract? How was his office?”

“You can tell a lot about a man by his office.”

I gulp another unladylike sip from my wine glass. “His office was beautiful. Sleek, overlooking the city. It oozed power.”

“Nice. Bet he fucks like he owns you.”

The thought of what he’s like in bed is enough to make me lose my train of thought.

“Go on,” Sadie prods.

I don’t continue immediately.

“You forgot what you were up to because you were thinking of him fucking you like he owns you, didn’t you?” My best friend smirks knowingly.

“Shut up.” I pause. “Anyway, I don’t know what I’m going to do.”

“Well, him. Obviously.”

“I wish it were that easy.”

3. A gentleman that turns into a bossy dirty talker in the bedroom. 

Cooper – behind closed doors. 

“You haven’t even begun to see bossy yet. Tonight I’m going to tell you to do things, and you’re going to do them. When I tell you to open wider, or take my cock deeper, you’re going to listen. You know why? Because since the moment we met, all I’ve wanted to do is make you feel good. Hell, I don’t even need to get off physically. Because I’m going to get off watching you every minute. So, yeah, I’m going to be bossy. Now let’s put the rest of this behind us. Do you want to be with me tonight?”

After that prelude, I nod my head fast. I’m no fool. Who wouldn’t?

Lisa Carlisle's KNIGHTS OF STONE with Guest Post & Giveaway

Guest Post 
by 
Lisa Carlisle

Gargoyles, Witches, and Forbidden Love

I have somewhat of an obsession with gargoyles, I’ll admit. My office has three framed photos of the gargoyles of Notre Dame over my monitors and gargoyle bookends, statues, and a shelf. There’s something about them I find compelling – a misunderstood creature with a drive to protect others.
Gargoyles have found their way into three paranormal series I’m writing. In each one, there’s a slightly different take with their characteristics as I enjoy exploring different aspects of it. These recent releases include: Knights of Stone, Rock My Senses, and Dark Muse.
Although I write paranormal romance, Knights of Stone was a little different. Most of my stories take place in the human world with paranormal creatures trying to blend in. In this one, gargoyles, tree witches, and werewolves live on the island, which humans discover. The gargoyles don’t hide their true nature, but proudly display their transition from stone to flesh as part of their shows.
When writing this story, I had an opening image of five gargoyle statues perched on a stage. Come night, the statues transform into human forms to take their roles in a band. I thought of a young witch who sneaked over to watch the show. She lives in a tree house as part of a coven on the other side of the mystical island. Once I got them together, I loved exploring how Kayla and Mason struggled against their forbidden attraction. Their coven and clan forbid them from socializing. And there begins their romance, one of forbidden love—another storyline I find fascinating.
So now I have a question for you -- what do you think of when you picture a gargoyle?


Knights of Stone 
Highland Gargoyles 1
Gargoyles, tree witches, and wolf shifters have divided the Isle of Stone after a great battle twenty-five years ago. When Kayla, a tree witch, hears about the unconventional rock concerts in the gargoyle’s territory, she sneaks from her coven and into their territory to see for herself. Night after night, she returns to see one in particular shift into human form and play guitar at these unconventional shows. 
For several nights, Mason has kept watch for the pixie-like female. He plans to seduce her, thinking she’s a visitor from another island. When he discovers she’s one of the tree witches, he retreats, attempting to keep his distance. The temptation is strong, but forbidden. 
Kayla and Mason attempt to meet in secret, but other elements on the isle command their attention. A magical cloak created by the three clans on the island is thinning, leading to repercussions for all the clans. Kayla and Mason are caught in the middle of it, and their actions may change the fate for all. 
This novella was originally released as part of the USA Today bestselling Highland Shifters paranormal romance boxed set.
  The crowd pushed Kayla closer to the stage as the last trails of fiery sunset faded. They knew what happened once darkness fell. She recovered her footing and focused again on the five life-sized stone gargoyles perched on pedestals on the perimeter of the stage. The space between them was set with instruments—guitars, a drum set, mic stands, and massive amplifiers, while a bonfire in a pit behind them cast the statues in a warm glow.
A stagehand with tartan draped over one shoulder climbed onto the stage and walked to the closest statue. He fastened the kilt over its shoulder and around its waist with a thick belt, covering the statue’s massive thighs. Kayla flushed, picturing why the coverings were necessary once the transformation began. The kilt had become a key detail in her fantasies about the guitarist, since it was the only clothing he wore. The stagehand continued dressing each statue with the same brilliant blue tartan worn by the gargoyle clan.
The last vestige of sunlight disappeared from the sky, and night draped the stage like a closing curtain. The statues loomed, dark silhouettes barely discernible by the crescent moon with the backdrop of the craggy cliffs and the rugged peaks of waves in the Atlantic Ocean behind them. The murmur of voices was replaced by silence. Waiting…
Five torches blazed on the stage all at once, lit by an unseen force. The audience erupted in cheers as the dancing lights from the flickering fire basked the statues. The flames lowered, casting the gargoyles in an eerie, almost reverent glow.
Movement. So slight, Kayla wondered if it was simply a play of light and shadows in her anticipation for the change. She fixed her gaze on the statue in front of her, the one she’d gravitated to each time she had sneaked out to see the show. Its massive gray form stood straight on two legs built for sturdiness. Its chest jutted out proudly. Gray wings with detailed feathers etched in the stone arched from a point below its shoulder blades. Eyes cast straight ahead on a face that appeared to be a mixture of canine and lion. Its right hand twitched, so slightly she would have missed it if she hadn’t stared so intently. Then a clawed foot inched forward.
Murmurs of astonishment burst from the crowd as the transformation began. Their cries of fervor grew louder as the monstrous statues transformed into taller, slimmer figures with the bronzed skin of warriors who battled under the midday sun. The tartan fabric fell over their thighs as they stood erect, covering their nudity.
Kayla barely blinked, mesmerized as always, as the statue before her stood to full height, taking on the form of a human male, but with beautiful raven wings. Hair just as black snaked rebelliously past his chin. The stony eyes flickered with animation, turning to a mossy green. His deep gaze seared the audience, seeming to burn anything in the path. When he found Kayla, he stopped. His expression was unreadable, but the intensity in his unblinking eyes made her swallow. She froze under the scrutiny as if hypnotized, unable to break eye contact. Her stomach lurched, heart pounded, and every muscle in her body tightened, fueled with blood now scorching through her veins. His penetrating appraisal affected her so. When his eyes took on a smoldering glint, her skin tingled and a red-hot awareness grew between her thighs.
He broke the stare and continued to assess the audience. She gasped, not realizing she had been holding her breath, and panted while she tried to breathe at a normal rate.
He turned on robust legs and strode to a guitar stand. She tore her eyes from him to note the other gargoyles. They, too, had shifted into the form of striking males. One had black hair draped further down his back, one had long blond hair, and two had reddish-brown hair—one wavy and shaggy, the other straight. They took their place at other instruments. She sought the guitarist again and caught the first sound of the pick striking the strings. On hearing the guitar projected through the amp, the crowd roared again, pressing Kayla forward.
The freak show was about to begin.
Spotlights flooded the musicians, powered by solar panels near a massive amplifier. The guitarist continued playing and the others joined in, playing a raucous crossover between hard rock and heavy metal. The one with long blond hair grabbed hold of the microphone and belted out a shattering cry that sounded like a call to battle. The crowd went pin drop silent to listen and then cheered in unison as the band played on. The front man sang piercing growls and low croons about the Knights in Stone, the protectors of the ancient forests, battling against the evil tree witches.
Kayla’s coven.

Teresa Gabelman's SLADE Tour and Giveaway!

teresa gabelman - whole series covers

teresa gabelman - Slade cover

synopsis


Highly trained VC Warrior, Dr. Slade Buchanan’s, role between lifesaver and lifetaker has been a constant battle, but nothing prepared him for half-breed VC Warrior trainee, Jill Nichols. Slade realizes his struggles from the past were nothing compared to the difficulty of resisting the woman who could never belong to a man like him.
Being the only female VC Warrior recruit, Jill Nichols, has an uphill battle. Falling for the sexy doctor, Slade Buchanan, has not made the battle any easier, especially when he constantly reminds her and others there will never be anything between them. Working harder than any male recruit, obstacles are thrown in her path, and with each challenge, it becomes clear that the two things she wants most may never be.






reviewTTbanner

Since The Protector Series is one of my all time favorites, I was doing the happy dance in anticipation to reading Slade’s story until I saw the cover. That is when I fainted dead on the floor. Ok ladies, this has to be the best sizzling Hottie man cover I have ever laid eyes on. To top it off, for me it is the perfect way I see Slade in my head. Here is one of my favorite quotes that reflects what you see when you drool over this cover. 


“He was so much taller than her; she had to tiptoe to bring the shirt over his head. He kept his arms down to his sides so the shirt just went around the back of his neck. Now, that was fucking hot as hell. Deciding to leave it like that, she ran her hands slowly down his body, loving the sensation of his muscles beneath her hands.”


This story featuring Jill Nichols and Slade Buchanan is so far my favorite. Yes, I say this with every new installment, but I do mean it.
Going from fear, to excitement, then laughter to tears, this read wraps up everything a good book needs between the well written pages.
While Jill works hard and proves she should be part of the VC Warriors, she also shows her vulnerability and womanly side, which I appreciate.
Slade is an all dominant, demanding (in a good way) *wiggling my eyebrows* and powerful male. And when he finally gets Jill behind closed doors he’s not afraid to show his traits. I now want to change my name and become Mrs. Jill Buchanan LOL.
All the other characters (with their unique personalities) in the series are included in this story too, which is an outstanding bonus. Together they all share a bond of love, and family, even though they don’t always act like it at times.
Applause to you Teresa Gabelman, this is positively a winner.

Genre: M/M- Contemporary

Main Characters: Bull and Ian

Release Date: Oct. 1, 2014


Book Provided by: ARC by author

Reviewed by: Wendy

My Rating: 5 stars






BLURB: Former Marine and full time big brother, Bull Connor spends his days helping those in need of a second chance and his nights fighting the inner demons that won’t let go. During a routine tow he comes face to face with the only person who refuses to need him and the one man he wishes would.
As a throw away, Ian Jones is used to being alternately overlooked or ridiculed but hasn’t given up on the idea that with just one chance he could turn it all around. Rescued by the one person who neither overlooks nor ridicules him, he longs to be seen as more than just a man in need.

Ian isn’t pining for the family he’s never known but when they descend, unwanted and uninvited, Bull must prove that he’s the man who will protect Ian’s long neglected heart by sharing the demons that torment his wounded soul.


REVIEW: I really liked this book more than the first one, book one was great but this one was just fantastic to me. It's insta-love but not, I will explain that a little. It was love at first site for Bull, even though he knew that Ian was there for a reason he also knew he had to know more about him. With Ian it was love at first site for his heart but it took his brain longer to catch up. Having such a tough life from the moment he came into the world he was slow to trust and even slower to actually think that anyone could love him. Patience and love was all Bull gave Ian until he realized that he was so much more than the worthless trash he believed himself to be. 
The absolute patience and heart that Bull put out to Ian made this book a 5 star read for me, even though Bull struggled with his past and the nightmares that the past brought on he still knew that he found his forever with Ian.  This book was so well written and emotional you could feel the love jump off the pages.

Victoria Sue's PURE Spotlight & Giveaway!!



Pure

By Victoria Sue


Callum hasn’t time to take on a new sub for training. He has his BDSM club, Pure, to remodel and open on Friday. He certainly doesn’t have the time to train Lee in all the nuances of submission, even if Lee seems to be a natural.
But someone else wants him. Another Master who has no limits and doesn’t believe in safe words.
If Callum doesn’t wake up and accept the gift of Lee’s submission, someone else will take it – forcefully.






Available at: Amazon   Amazon UK   ARe


Excerpt:
Shit, what a day.
Longest day of his life, but God it was worth it. The club was finally his. Callum closed his eyes in relief and leaned his head on the smooth smoked privacy glass taking up the whole of one wall of his new office. Nickelback hammered out of the music system, and the glass vibrated. Later—yeah, later—he’d turn it down some, but now...now he needed it to drown out the pounding in his head.
He flicked the switch on the speaker so he could hear the sounds from the dungeon. Screams battered his ears, whips sung, and metal chains clanged. He breathed them in. Sex. He could nearly smell it. So, why was he up here in some stuffy office on his own, and not down there celebrating? He’d finally got what he’d worked so hard for, hadn’t he? There were bound to be a few subs down there that would love to help him do just that and normally he would be able to take his pick.
Callum opened his eyes. He looked for orange vests that should have stood out like beacons. Where the hell were they? Part of the purchase agreement for Pure was letting the old owners use the premises tonight. The old owners had two clubs and the other had some stag night going on, so they wanted somewhere for their regular members to go. He didn’t like it, but they had sweetened the deal, promising a cash bonus that he could use for new equipment, and it gave him a chance to organize his own people for how things were gonna go down starting next week.
The former DM’s from Spanks were supposed to be patrolling the dungeons tonight. His sigh frosted the glass in front of him. Patrolling? Yeah, more like checking out the bar. Who ever heard of an open bar in a BDSM club?
Spanks had no rules, no control. Which was why their little lawsuit problem had opened up the club for purchase and Callum had dived straight in.
There’d be no more dumb bachelor parties. No more Spankseven the name had no class.
When he re-opened on Friday, he was naming it Pure.
And it would be.

About the Author:
Has loved books for as long as she can remember. Books were always what pocket money went on and what usually Father Christmas brought. When she ran out of her kids' adventure stories, she would go raid her Mom's. By the age of eight she was devouring classics like Little Women, and fell in love with love stories.
She's still in love with them. Any size, any shape, any creature —love is love, no matter what it says on the box.
In fact if they don't fit very neatly into any box she loves them even more!
She has a very patient husband and three wonderful children. In 2010 in search of adventure they all moved from the UK to the US and are happily settled in Florida.

Wendy's review- 4 Stars

The bachelor life is all Callum wanted right now, except for maybe running the top BDSM club in town. Being the best Master in the club, all the subs wanted to be taught and collared by Callum, but he liked being single and playing the field. His life is turned upside down the first night he owns his own club, a Dom gets too aggressive with a new untrained sub. Saving the young sub awakens something in Callum he never thought he would be, a man who wanted a committed relationship.
Lee's life has not been easy but now with Callum he can be happy, or so he thinks. Danger is around every corner for him and someone is out to take him from Callum.

Revenant by Larissa Ione

Book Name: Revenant

Series: Lords of Deliverance #6

Author's Name: Larissa Ione

Genre: M/F- Paranormal Romance

Main Characters: Revenant and Blaspheme

Release Date: December 16, 2014


Book Provided by: Netgalley

Reviewed by: Wendy

My Rating: 4 Stars

Website ~ Goodreads ~ Facebook ~ Twitter




BLURB: HELL HATH NO FURY . . .
For five thousand years, Revenant believed he was alone in the world, a fallen angel beyond any redemption. Now he finds he has a twin brother who had all the light and love Revenant was denied. Caught in a tug of war between Heaven and Hell, he must weigh his thirst for revenge against his desire for a mysterious female named Blaspheme—a female whose very origins could deliver him into salvation . . . or destruction.

LIKE AN ANGEL SCORNED

Blaspheme has a deadly secret: she's the forbidden offspring of an angel and a fallen angel. Hunted by both heavenly and satanic forces, she has survived only by laying low and trusting no one. When Revenant claims he can save them both, how can she possibly believe him? But the powerful angel is persistence incarnate and for Blaspheme, there's no place she can hide in Heaven or Hell where he won't find her.


REVIEW: Took me a little bit to get into this book but once I did, I enjoyed it. The push/pull of good and evil is a constant fight inside of Revenant. Finding out that he is not an actual Fallen Angel was a shocker but learning that he has a twin brother had to be the most shocking thing ever for him. Knowing he has a family is something he thought would never happen to him but finding a woman who loves and wants him makes him happier than he has ever been. 
Blaspheme has had to hide and run her entire life. Hiding her true identity is getting harder for her.

Kelley Heckart's THE BEAR GODDESS Spotlight, Guest Post & Bonus Giveaway!

Sexy Centaurs

Guest Post

When deciding on a romantic lead for my nymph in The Bear Goddess, I knew he had to be a follower of Zeus, and he had to be an enemy of Artemis and her nymphs. At first I was going to make him human, but that didn’t seem exciting enough for such a popular Greek myth. After some brainstorming, I decided to make my hero a centaur but this posed a problem—centaurs are known for their savagery, not to mention they are part horse. So, how was I going to create a likeable centaur and not have uncomfortable romantic scenes? After giving it some thought I came up with an idea—my hero, and a few other centaurs, could take human shape. 
This worked for a number of reasons. The centaurs who could take human shape were viewed as outsiders within their centaur community and due to their unusual parentage, had milder personalities than their brutal relatives. This also made a romance between a nymph and a centaur more believable and not weird when it came time to write sex scenes. Plus, it added a level of sexiness for my hero to be something as exciting and dangerous as a centaur but also able to transform into a hunky human. In his centaur body, Kasin is powerful and formidable with a pure black horse body and in his human shape, he is still intimidating but striking and handsome with long black hair and war braids. 
As a follower of Zeus, Kasin is a warrior above all else, but he also has some favorite activities he keeps hidden from the rest of the centaurs. One of these is singing. Music, unless it is a battle horn, is not allowed among the fierce centaurs. My hero also likes to take scented baths; another activity frowned upon among the hygienically challenged centaurs. I had to make him attractive to a nymph who bathed often, and I’m sure readers appreciate a clean, well-mannered hero too. 
Not all centaurs have to be savage and some can be downright sexy.

Blurb: The lost memories of a thief…
The first twelve years of Alina’s life are a black void. An accomplished thief, she uses her cloaking ability to pick pockets as well as stage elaborate heists. Digging deeper into her past sets off a chain of events that puts her, and the family she has just discovered, in the sights of their worst enemy.
…and the scarred heart of a guardian…
In secret, Lash Watcher Caine plots vengeance for the destruction of everything he loved. Branded by loss, he longs to find his one true mate, knowing that only with her will his heart fully heal. When his brief meeting with Alina is interrupted by her elaborate evade-and-escape plan, he knows there is more to her than meets his watchful eyes. But nothing can prepare him for the lethal power of her mind.
…collide at the fault line of destiny.
A brilliant villain with a vicious and loyal army behind her can only be stopped by one force: the combined power of four women who command the elements. Alina, with her newly-discovered affinity to the earth, becomes the linchpin to halting the desecration of their world. Thrown into a battle plan and a new family, she finds joy in in the quiet strength of Caine’s arms. But when the secrets to her past are revealed, she learns a terrible price has been paid in advance. The very magic that allowed her to live to fulfill a prophecy will forever deny her heart’s deepest wish.


Review: I really like this series. I think Sharon contacted us in 2013 to review the first book in the series. I jumped at the chance because how can you go wrong with sexy demons who fall for human women? 
This is the last book in this series but I read there will be a spin-off series so I am very excited about that. 
In the previous three books we met, Nicole, Brooke and Gin, sisters with special talents. Nicole can control the wind and air, Brooke can control water and Gin can control fire. Thinking they were human all their lives, it was a real wake up call when they were told they are a special breed of women called, The Solsti. Finding their true mates, they are all finally happy and together but each feel like someone is missing. Their baby sister died when she was just an infant but they all still connected to her. 
Alina doesn't remember anything before the age of twelve, that is when her new father found her in a cave. Living her life on the run with her father and being a thief is the life she knows. Having a sense of something pressing on her mind causes her to make a huge mistake.
Caine, a Lash demon, first saw Alina when she was trying to steal from the host of the party. Since their chance run in, he has thought about nothing but her so seeing her at a club one night is the best thing that's happen to him in a long time. When Alina gets hurt, he does everything he can to take care of her and protect her. 
Learning who and what she truly is, is an eye opening experience for Alina. Having the family she always wanted makes her life complete. But having the one thing she wants above everything else can cause her new life to end in the most unexpected way.
