Most would give all they had to be raised in the realm of the Fae. Cole had no choice. He was too young to remember anything of his own realm, save for snatches of memories that could be no more than his imagination. But if it hadn't been for the Fae who found him wandering between realms after his was destroyed, he would be dead now. It was the Fae who raised Cole and trained him in weaponry and battle skills until he became a warrior to be feared. When the same evil that destroyed his realm threatened Earth and the Fae, he was the first to volunteer for the Shields.
With his immortality the only link he has to his past, Cole now takes what comfort he can in the arms of women. He wants nothing more than one night with them, one night to forget that he cannot remember his family, one night to take what pleasure he can. It isn't until he finds Shannon that he begins to think of more than just one night in her arms.
Shannon has been brought back in time from Chicago to 1244 England because the evil knows what she is - one of the Chosen. Somehow the evil has found the Chosen before the Shields. His plan is to kill Shannon, but Cole won't allow that. His duty is to protect her at all costs. He's never known fear until now - until Shannon.

As a PNR fan I'm loving The Shields series along with the imaginative characters and situations that DG so vividly creates which are so entertaining that it makes listening to one of her books such an enjoyable experience and they'll have you routing for the good guys all the way.
Cole is a gorgeous (naturally), charismatic immortal member of The Shields and he's been raised and trained by the Fae in weapons warfare but he's a fully paid-up member of the 'love em and leave em club'..... that is until he sets eyes on Shannon who's been transported through time unwittingly to help in the forthcoming battle against the latest threat and, of course, to meet Cole.
Good adventure, action-packed, likeable characters with a tender, sweet romance and naturally their quest brings them one step closer to defeating The Evil one. However, as this book is not quite 6 hrs long I felt it suffered slightly because of this and, as a result, I didn't enjoy this one to the same extent as the previous books (but hey that's just me being greedy I guess). You may say outch at the price for a 5hr 43 mins listen but DG did pack a lot into it.
Worth a credit? The whole series so far has held me captivated so that's a YES and I've already Pre-Ordered books 4 & 5 so I guess that makes me one of DG's committed fans too.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
To be honest this story is very short, I felt it could have been fleshed out a bit more. However, the story was great, the H/h were likeable and not dumb. Cole is an immortal, who was a foundling by the Fae, raised and trained by them, he became a member of the Shields. The job of the Shields is to fight The Evil. Shannon is a modern woman who has been bought to this particular time and place for a purpose. Naturally Cole is drawn to her, something he can't explain won't let him leave her.
Worth a credit? Yes!! Really a good story. The narrator was pretty good. Women voices needed a like work.
