Publisher's Summary

Only passion can soothe the beast within....

Known only as Jag, he leads the Knights of White against the soulless Darkland Beasts who took his wife and his life. Jag is immortal, destined to live with the vengeance he feels in his heart and the dreams that haunt his soul. Sensual dreams of a woman. Dreams that threaten to unleash the beast within....  

Karen Gibson is an innocent mortal, unwittingly thrown into this millennia-old battle, and - unwillingly - under Jag's protection. She and Jag are about to discover they have met before - in the dreams they share.  

Neither trusts the other. Neither can survive alone. The secret of those erotic dreams may be all that saves them - if Jag can only accept it. At risk is Karen's life and Jag's immortal soul....

"Oh Plot where art thou!"😭

no story here at all, just angst and sex. moody immortal meet clueless damsel, and they sex every second of the day, literally. Same dialogue and monologue over and over again. I had to stop 1/3 of the way, not worth my time

Waited days between readings

I tried for weeks to get through this, hoping it could call to me however the only thing driving the story is sex so far and honestly, that isn’t my cup of tea. I wanted more from the characters but I wasn’t able to find it. Sigh...another one bites the dust

Goodish.

It was a little hard to follow. The story idea was good could have used a few more chapters and changed some of the character names so they don't all sound the same it made it very confusing. Again the story plot was interesting just felt like some of the story was cut or missing.

Very wordy

Good story line, but extremely wordy. I only made it 3 chapters in before turning it off.

Wanted More

The ending was a little anti-climactic to me. The story was okay, but the dramatic/action scenarios were just a little boring to me.

Sigh....Ugh...Huff

This was not the book for me. I got to chapter 3 before deciding I wasn’t going to put myself through the mental pain of finishing this book.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s well written and the narrator amazing but it’s just boring. The main character spends all of chapter 1 complaining about his life. The. Whole. Chapter!!!

There are just too many good books out there for me to waste time on something I don’t love. Hopefully someone else can get something out of it.

Yes! Worth the credit

First off, excellent narration. Dream strong male voice. Second, I was hesitant to download but thought, “why not?”, since I like the author and other books she has written. Just steamy enough with a solid storyline and characters that have depth.
