January St. Davis, on her own since the age of sixteen and struggling to stay in college, thinks she’s scored in a major way when she lands a paid summer internship at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. One evening, after working an especially long shift, a chance encounter with a group of mysterious men alters the course of her life.
Rykerian Yarrister, a Guardian of Vesturon with unearthly powers and impossibly gorgeous looks, finds himself at odds over the human female he recently saved from certain death. When it seems he is on the verge of winning her over, she is ripped from his hands by a strange and powerful being, threatening to destroy her if his demands are not met.
Do Rykerian and the Guardians have the ability to meet this fierce barbarian’s ultimatums, or will January suffer a horrid demise?
My Review: January is having a difficult life; her mother threw her out of the house, she doesn't know who her father is, and she doesn't have any money. Then there's Rykerian is Rayn's brother. He has everything he needs and his life is good, but if only he can forget the beautiful young girl he saw near his house. When Rykerian saves January's life,a spark forms between the two. Rykerian finally has the chance to win her over, but she is suddenly taken away from him by a being who threatens to kill her. Will January let go of her past, and give Rykerian a chance? Will Rykerian be able to resue January from her abductor? The plot is much more quicker, in book 3. Although the setting is the same, it is very well explained and detailed. I wish that the first two books were also about Janurary and Rykerian. I love them. January has been through so much, but she is willing to change everything she has believed to get a chance at real love. Rykerian is just the perfect dream boy, protective, caring, strong-willed and overly sensitive.
