He came to her in the night, a predator -- strength and power chiseled his features. The seduction was deep and elemental; he affected her soul. His need. His darkness. His terrible haunting loneliness. Her senses aroused, she craved the dangerous force of his body. Burned for him. And he had only touched her with his mind.
Lady of the Light
She came to him at dawn, his bleakest hour. As the beast raged inside him, threatening to consume him, he vented his centuries-old despair in an anguished cry that filled the waning night. And she answered, a ray of light, piercing his darkness. A beautiful angel. Her compassion, courage, and innocence awakened in him an exquisite longing and tenderness. He knew he must possess her, for only she could tame his savage side and lift the dark shadow from his soul. Apart they were desolate, bereft. Intertwined physically and spiritually, they could heal one another and experience an eternity of nights filled with love
I was 12 years old when I read this and it was a shock to read some scenes. it raised my hairs and gave me goosebumps with how intense it was. It had multiple sex scenes that at first i just skipped over since i was uncomfortable reading it. I fell in love with how dominant Mikhail is and his lifemate Raven was just as endearing. They both had strong characteristics and it was watching them get to know each other. She was so used to her independence and he has been a Prince for centuries. He is not used to being defied. As you can imagine these two clashed many times. One of my favorite things is that for a Carpathian man there is only one other for them. Who wouldn't want that?! These men are devoted to their mate. I love that idea. I'm a romantic =D Must read series. If you are a lovey dovey like me. You will love this series. ^_^
