Paradise, love, power…and a prophecy with a price.

Most people believe Eden no longer exists. Lexi Merrill’s about to learn they’re wrong. A hard-working bartender with a self-sufficient backbone and a wary nature, she knows pickup lines like a second language. So, when Eryx Shantos barges into her world with too-smooth words and a body to back it up, she locks up her libido and vows to keep her distance.

Eryx has other ideas. As king of the Myren race, Eryx is duty-bound to enforce the laws preventing exposure of their existence to humans. Yet The Fates have led him through his dreams to Lexi, a temptation he doesn’t want to resist. The question--is she Myren, or human, which makes her forbidden fruit?

When Eryx’s nemesis tags Lexi as his next target, Eryx insists on taking her home where he can keep her safe. Lexi had no idea “home” would mean the one-and-only land of creation…or that she’d trigger a prophecy that could doom her newfound race.

Memorable Quote of the book - "Never tell me what you think I want to hear. I can't provide for your needs if you don't share them" Eryx to Lexi at their mating

This book is a new exciting theme that draws you in with solid characters that wrap around your senses and keep you spellbound till the very end. There is intrigue, murder, kidnapping and love all wrapped into this storyline.

Though the primary characters are Alexis (Lexi) and Eyrx with the villians being Maxis, Serena and Reese Theron. The secondary characters of Ian, Ludan, Galena, Jagger, and Ramsay are so mesmerizing that I can see this series going on for a very long time.

A thought provoking story of the existence of Eden where people known as the Myren race live. The author goes into great description of what this land looks like and further draws you into the story with how a Myren man loves and honors his mate. I came away with a sense of longing for this never-ending type of love described in this book and the desire to see other characters in this book find the same love.

At the end of a battle there is an interaction between healer Galena and the leader of the enemy army, Reese, that will break your heart and you will wonder “Is there really a way to mend broken souls?”. I loved Galena’s answer and look forward to see it happen in future books by this author.

From what I can find this is her first book and she is definitely on my list of authors to follow and read.

I was gifted this ARC in exchange for an honest opinion via Netgalley.

Rhenna Morgan writes for the same reason she reads—to escape reality.

Yes, her life rocks—two beautiful little girls, a great husband, a steady job, and the kind of friends that would take you out back if you hurt her. But, like most women, she’s got obligations stacked tight from dusk to dawn. So, when the world gets her down, she slips into something…less realistic.

Romance is a must. So is a steamy romp (or four). Nothing thrills her more than the fantasy of new, exciting worlds, strong, intuitive men, and the sigh of, “Oh if only that could happen to me.”

So, if you’re picking up one of her books, expect portals into alternate realms and men who’ll fight to keep the women they want. Romantic escape for the women who need it.
