The h, Alyssa, is madly, passionately in love with the H, Dillon before the first word is even written in this book. And Dillon, once her cloak is off falls just as madly in love with her. So our star crossed lovers can't be together because 1. Everyone fears Alyssa as a witch. 2. She's effectively a peasant and Dillon is a noble, never the two shall marry.
Instead of getting intricate with the plot the author chose to take several bland short cuts. Our lovers never let up on the angst of loving each other so much, but can't be together, but damn, it we will find a way.
A bit soppy, a bit sweet. A decent tale.
The book obviously has a lot of romance in it but theres also equal focus on Alyssa who is the gifted one of the romantic pair and Lord Dillion’s world of politics and war. The book starts of slow but then it keeps a steady pace.
Alyssa and her family are gifted ones, it has been passed onto from her mother who got it from grandmother. Her grandmother used to be the advisor to Lord Dillions father. Now Alyssa is to be the advisor to Lord Dillion but still pretending to be her grandmother. Alyssa has been in love with Dillion ever since she was a child. She knows that taking on the role of the advisor would mean end to even the chance them ever being together but she does it anyway. Which just showed how strong her will was even from a young age.
I really enjoyed Alyssa, she is such a strong woman and manages to hide her identity and the fact she is not her grandmother , instead is 16 year old girl in the prologue who decides to follow the steps of her grandmother and does what is needed to be done. She is independent, loving and caring at the same time so wise for a woman her age. Obviously I also liked the fact thought Alyssa was in love with Dillion she didn’t make stupid decisions which is always important but at times I did think because of her healer side she would too often be careless about her own health which made me
Dillion, Earl of Westcott was also an extremely good lead. Despite the rumours about him, he wasn’t a ruthless leader or violent, he was just. He also loved his brother, the only family he had felt. He was also lonely, he wanted to be with someone who didn’t want him because of his status or his wealth.
Alyssa and Dillion become friends in the seven years after Alyssa took the role of his advisor and throughout the book their friendship is clear, they understand each other. The were bonded to each other, more importantly they made each other happy. Their relationship falls under friends to lovers trope and I think it was done pretty well. They both protective of each other, had passion after Alyssa’s revelation and love.
There are some twists, turns along with some battle wounds along the way to Dillion and Alyssa’s HEA. All of which made the story more interesting and showed the character’s and the couples development.
We also see Seth and some of immortal guardians as mortals in the series which was fun to read about. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series which will be releasing next year. If you have not already, do check out the first book in the immortal guardians series Darkness Dawns . It’s about a antisocial vampire and a university music teacher that began it all. Happy Reading!
There is plenty of intrigue and action as Dillon deals with treachery and deceit when an enemy stoops to underhand and cowardly tactics. These tactics may be well planned, but this enemy does not consider Alyssa, the extent of her abilities and her utter determination to ensure Dillon’s safety.
This is definitely a romance for fans of fantasy as the historical setting is a little on the vague side; instead this is a paranormal/fantasy romance which is almost incidentally set in the 12th century. That aside, I thought Alyssa and Dillon made a great couple, plus his brother Robert (who takes the lead role in book 2 “Rendezvous With Yesterday” due for pub. in a couple of months) and Alyssa’s unusual family certainly add to the plot.
