Once blissfully in love . . .
Poppy Lane is keeping secrets. Her powerful gift has earned her membership in the Society for the Suppression of Supernaturals, but she must keep both her ability and her alliance with the Society from her husband, Winston. Yet when Winston is brutally attacked by a werewolf, Poppy's secrets are revealed, leaving Winston's trust in her as broken as his body. Now Poppy will do anything to win back his affections . . .
Their relationship is now put to the ultimate test.
Winston Lane soon regains his physical strength but his face and heart still bear the scars of the vicious attack. Drawn into the darkest depths of London, Winston must fight an evil demon that wants to take away the last hope of reconciliation with his wife. As a former police inspector, Winston has intelligence and logic on his side. But it will take the strength of Poppy's love for him to defeat the forces that threaten to tear them apart.
Oh how Iove missed these characters. I have adored each of these characters since Firelight.
I love Poppy’s fierce need to protect those she loves. Everything she tried to keep secret definitely came out after Winston was attacked. Poppy tries to win back his love without making her seem needy. She is a force to be reckoned with, expecially when things don’t go her way. I admired the battle that Winston fights with himself. How can he love a woman who has kept so many secrets from him?
The tension between these two is insane. They love each other, and miss each other, but they are both too proud to admit it. I love seeing them have to work togther to solve the mystery of what is coming at them. They have a need to protect each other, but each wants to do it in their own way. There may be some times that they do things the other won’t approve of but they do it out of love.
These two definitely have to figure out if they can trust each other. Sometimes love isn’t enough, but sometimes it is.
