Desire. Surrender. Discovery.
A man committed to shaping his future…
Austin MacKenzie shares a passionate relationship with Liz Carlisle, a union rooted in mutual respect and honesty. A feat complicated by the vow of purity handed down by his Scottish forefathers and the ire of his scorned ex-girlfriend. When a series of tragedies rock their worlds, the couple must fight for their relationship and lives.
A woman about to discover the mystery of her past…
Liz Carlisle has led a challenged life. The survivor of a childhood stained by drug addiction and poverty, Austin MacKenzie’s love is helping to mend her heart from the inside out. But echoes from the past threaten to destroy her newfound happiness.
With music as a common bond…
Fate brought them together, but music remains the centrifugal force tying Liz and Austin to one another. With the popularity of their Indie rock group growing, Cupid’s Crush prepares to join alternative rock sensations, Justice Denied, on the European leg of a worldwide tour that promises to catapult them to mega stardom.
Emotional and Romantic. Austin and Liz both have their demons and sometimes it takes someone who understands some form of pain to help you. I feel like that is what happened with these two characters. They have two completely different lives, but can relate and work because of some of their experiences.
There was so much going on throughout this novel. I was in it for the romance, like I always am and that aspect was very well done.
Ashlynne Laynne really manages to captivate the reader with her words and descriptions. I felt the desire. I felt the raw need. I felt the pain. Overall, I felt the emotions come off these characters.
