Blurb: The power of love…
Scarred by the past, determined never to love another man, Adam Fletcher’s life is all about reality—bytes and technology. On the night of his thirtieth birthday, he makes a wish, never believing that wishes can come true. When the man of his dreams walks into his life, Adam doesn’t know whether to run from him, or to him. Tirian is just too gorgeous to be real…
Tirian is a unicorn-warrior, horn-broken, disgraced, and made outcast, because he dared to defy his clan. His crime? To make music, not war. But in his quest to find a new life, he is shocked to discover that he will find true love far from home—his soul mate is human.
Will love heal their hurts, or will the past destroy their one chance at happiness? Love and Magic hold the key—if they are brave enough to reach out.
Review: This is the first time reading Astrid’s stories and I can honestly say that she has a hit on her hands. It was an amazing read with its mystical ways. I loved the idea of one of the main characters being a unicorn and the fact that he had overcome being outcaste by his family for wanting to play music.
Tirian no longer had strong magic due to the fact that his horn had been broken as a sign of disgrace. He wanted to make music not war and was punished for it. He did however have a love for life. He is kind, gentle, and very protective of his mate. A mate that had been hurt by his one and only lover in such a way that should have killed him. Adam was scarred on the outside but also on the inside. He was afraid to trust any man, but when he came across Tirian, he knew what he needed to do. He needed to trust this man and give him his heart. Adam is a loving man who has a heart of gold. You can’t help but love these two men and wish them the happiness they deserve. Not to mention the sex between them will light your fires. The light keeps the darkness away when they are together. Tirian will protect Adam with his life. There is much love in this story.
Astrid has an amazing gift for telling stories. I love the way it came together and the way it was told. It was told in such a serious tone but it did have a bit of humor to it. It caught my attention from the start and kept my attention to the very end. I want more from this author and can’t wait to read the next book in this series.
