Humans aren’t as alone as they choose to believe. Every human possesses a trait of supernatural that lays dormant within their genetic make-up. Centuries of diluting and breeding have allowed humans to think they are alone and untouched by magic. But what happens when something changes?
Eliana Sawyer’s life was rocked from its foundation twice in as many years. She risked her heart and had it shattered into a thousand pieces when Malik left her with no warning. While she’d normally raise her chin and ignore the pain, she can’t forget what he gave her before he disappeared from her life.
Malik Ward is a prince amongst the lion shifters and knows that one day he will have to take a mate. Only, his people can never mate with humans. Under the mistaken impression that Eliana was only human, he forced himself to leave before they’d crossed a line and he broke his vow to his people. Now that he knows the truth about Eliana, however, it will take more than groveling to win back the one woman fated to be his.
While Eliana and Malik embark on a new sensuous path that might lead to disaster, the realms aren’t ready to allow the final lightning-struck human to be enveloped into their fold. The couple will have to combat those plotting against them, as well as the broken promises and heated emotions they share.
Warning: Contains a Leo with a bite that’s worse than his roar, a woman with one last chance at the life she’s always dreamt of, a flame that could extinguish with the wrong sacrifice, and the final journey in the bestselling Dante’s Circle series.
Eliana Sawyer was such a fascinating character for me as she was human and alone searching for a way to survive without a man she was falling in love. She had her friends by her side and they would protect her with all they had but Eliana needed a forever kind of person by her side that only her mate could fulfill.
Malik Ward will forever regret the decisions he made with Eliana leaving her because he thought she was human and would always be human. Malik had responsibilities to fulfill as Leo of his Pride soon since his fathers’ health is not holding together. As Leo he would need to be mated but the one woman he wanted he thought he could never have.
I loved this book so much!! Again I am super sad that I started so late in the game but I will correct that very shortly! Eliana quickly became such an inspiring woman to me and I loved the sacrifices she made even though they could be her last! I give 5 blazing stars for Prowled Darkness by Carrie Ann Ryan! I am a very BIG fan!!
