Two worlds. Two enemies. 

Haunted by loss, Cascadian assassin Rickert D’Angelus is on a mission of vengeance. Determined to stop the Pacifican army from finding a portal to his world, he leads a group of warriors into New Seattle with one goal—to kill all Pacifican soldiers.

Neyla Trihorn had the perfect life until a deadly accident revealed her latent para-abilities. Now, the former fashion designer is the Pacifican army’s hottest commodity in their fight against the invaders.

When Rickert discovers a beautiful, unconscious soldier on a cold mountain ledge near the portal, he realizes she’s a Protection-Talent and cannot be killed. To prevent the army from using her skills again, he takes her as his prisoner instead.

One fated touch…

But when he pulls her into his arms, a sexy and compelling vision appears, awakening something inside him. Something he can’t ignore.

Torn between duty and passion, Rickert must decide if the vision is a Talent trick designed to foil the enemy or the answer to his deepest desires...

Elizabeth's Thoughts
Two worlds warring for different reasons; what the Pacificans were taught was misleading and an even greater, more sinister injustice has been committed, but not against the Pacificans. Neyla Trihorn believed her Talent was an anomaly but after meeting the rough, tough and very sexy kilt-clad assassin, Rickert D’Angelus, she slowly learns that things are not what they seem.

I absolutely LOVED this novella! I loved the two different worlds and the differences between them. I also love how there is so many directions for this story to travel and I am very excited to read about others in the Iron Guild. And, of course, the beautiful happily ever after that hadn’t come easy. The writing is excellent, the plot is brilliant and the characters are well-developed. If I wasn’t already a fan of Laurie London, I would be after reading this novella.

I was gifted an eBook copy from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own.
